This was the first product, a children's jeans jacket which sleeves I cut off:
Cute little bumble bee on the back.
The reason I chose a children's jacket, is because it is small and will serve more as an accessory than an actual clothing item. I also didn't want the vest to clash with my entire outfit too much but rather to accompany it. Having a normal size vest would have been too big for me, to my personal taste at least.
Decorating was a lot of fun. I've used studs that I was smart enough to bring with me from Israel [ordered from Ebay by Boris' father for me long time ago] and drew the patches by hand.
The bronze pin belongs to the Logistic military corps, AKA worn on a beret by every Israeli soldier. This pin belonged to Boris in his 1 year service, I believe I've left my Home Front Command pin at my mother's house in Israel. The reason why I'm wearing Israeli military gadgets on my jacket and vest is purely sarcastic. There's also my Clockwork Orange pin that I took from my jacket, it was bought in my first trip to Berlin in 2009 :)
I've made patches of my 2 favorite post punk bands. The Xmal Deutschland was drawn by hand, and because I didn't have a thinner brush the 'Deutschland" turned a bit chubby, but it looks cool anyway. I'm planning to make the Lebanon Hannover gallow symbol later on.
This is how the vest turned out:
It's still not as detailed as I've wanted it to be, but it's a work in progress, and with time I'll have better ideas. You are welcome to suggest anything!
Moving on to the outfit, this was what I wore to the LGBT rights demonstration last weekend:
I;m really happy about how the vest looks! It's very comfy and doesn't feel small even when wearing several shirts underneath despite it being a children's clothing. I am planning to wear it with a maxi skirt I bought not long ago. The bohemian style is something that inspires me aside from punk as well lately :)
This was my makeup:
The usual Catrice gel liner + a black eyeshadow.
Lips are black lipstick mixed with chapstick.
I hope everyone is having some beautiful autumn days. Let them be grayer and colder!
Alas, such music was great for the last misty days!
