. So, you want a speaker grille that will stand out and/or be unique?
. How sturdy does it need to be? Will it be well-protected in your bedroom or thrown in the back of a van to and from concerts?
. What kind of music do you play? What other interests might you like to "advertise"?
. By "tights" do you mean something like leotards or pantyhose? They should be acoustically transparent, but I doubt if they would hold up in transport.

I'm looking for something simple, that won't necessarily stand out, although I don't mind if it does. Sturdiness isn't a big issue, It will mostly stay in my room. I'll play anything from metal to blues. Basically I want some kind of cover, plain black is fine, or something more "metal"/ rock
Yeah my tights I do mean pantyhose, but I don't think they'd be big enough... And slight transparency (visual that is) isn't too big a problem either although I don't want the speakers to be on full view......

. I'd try something like burlap or other very loose weave fabric, that has been dyed black.
