SKELETON REFERENCE PHOTO
My pants are a bit worn down, as you can tell by the photo. I have worn them a million times so I am planning on making another pair. Another thing you may notice is that my pants have the hip bone. Some of you may want to wear your leggings under a dress, or skirt so the hip part wont show, but I wear mine as pants so it looked weird without the hip bone. Its not that hard to do. I just measured the width and length of the hip part of my pants, then based on those measurements drew out the bone shape, cut it out and glued it. Just the same as I had done with the rest of the bones I cut out. But you only need to take that extra step if you want to.
SO if you where wondering what I have been doing lately, here's a mini photo diary:
I have been putting eyes on my nails,
Learning how to drive, look at that muscle definition,
Meeting Tom from Plain White Tees in Loblaws, and having pizza with him,
(This is me telling to cold, dry toronto air to FUCK OFF^)Waiting 7 hours in the freezing cold to see one of my favourite bands Never Shout Never. (I am not usually the kind of person to listen to music like that, and people think its really odd when I tell them I am a Never Shout Never fan but I REALLY AM, and I had the best time. I wish I could type more about the concert but I actually have so much homework).
I didnt get a decent photo of my outfit that day. I wish you could see my dress, I made it :(. My logic for this outfit was "its probably gonna be really hot and sweaty during the concert so I should wear less clothing." I was WRONG. Yes it was very hot and sweaty during the concert, but i forgot about the waiting outside in the cold part, so I am currently very very sick.
I am currently making a skeleton top to go with my leggings for my costume tomorrow. As much as I love Halloween i honestly have not dressed up for the past 3 years. Though when I went out people thought i was dressed up when I am not. For the past two weeks I have had people approach me telling me they like my costume.........and I always reply "This is not a costume, it's just day wear." I find it funny though, and never take it to offence. I know a lot of people just wear crazy things for shits and giggles and attention. But I genuinely love to wear what I do, and the comments are just a side thing.
So, this was a very mixed post. You got a DIY, and a photo Diary and stories and now I will leave you with a little song to keep you company while you make your skeleton leggings.Have a good day!
