a little D-I-Y


It's been cold as fudge so I've been DIYing my ass off! 
I bought the sweater last year from shoptoast but I felt it needed a makeover..you know a little more 2012.
So I did what I do best and I dipped that shit!! Beyond amazed on how it turned out and I love the color fade in the middle...YUM! Plus I saved myself a couple of hundred bucks since they're going for a fortune online, sooooooo yay me!

Now the gloves are just beyond simple. Go to Walgreen's, Rite Aid, Duane Reade's...whateves and buy you some cheap black gloves. Cut off the fingers halfway and add spike/studs. Fingerless gloves are already badass so I just wanted add that extra wtf, hehe!

Hope you love?

kiss kiss,
Virgin

So down with that sweater. Do you do your dip dyes in a bucket? I have been doing mine in a large pot and it's definitely still too small to make anything turn out somewhat even.

Strawberry Freckleface: Do you do your dip dyes in a bucket?

I use a big crawfish pot, about the size of a bucket.
