the boxers I make him and made a very acceptable knock-off. But, that didn't seem special enough for a birthday present. So, I added a red lightning bolt (part of the Grateful Dead's frequently used imagery) to the left thigh. Bam! They're even cooler than the original pair. The pants are blue and the stitching entirely red. The Grateful Dead use a lot of red and blue, too. It was a little tricky to go around all the points on that bolt, but I'd traced a copy of it on the pants with peach-colored oil pastels (I really should get some chalk) so that gave me a good outline to follow.
