Then came this cult online store that makes all these dark wiccan inspired shirts and sweaters with equally dark quotes that I adored. And there was this particular quote on a shirt that I LOVED but didn't like where it was positioned on the shirt. Then once again, I thought "PFFT fuck it imma make my own".
Honestly, DIY seems like alot of work but it actually isn't all that bad! Plus, it's super fun when you get to make something exactly the way you pictured it in your head no? All you gotta do is be creative with it and when people start questioning where you 'bought' your DIY creation you can be all like "hehehuehue I made it myself :3"
D.I.Y 'BAD KITTY' LEATHER CHOKER
Awhile ago I stumbled upon this cute lil choker while browsing tumblr. The source of the picture led me to an online store that sold it for around 20-ish SGD. I guess that price is okay, after all it is a leather choker. But going through all that hassle for one choker seems pretty troublesome for me (if I'm gonna buy stuff that's to be shipped halfway across the world I might as well make it worth my moolahs and get it in bulk). So as usual, the little DIY instinct of mine kicked in and off I went to source for the stuff needed to make it. I'd say the materials cost me half of what I would've spent on the original one so WHOOP!
1. Leather tape
2. Snap buttons
3. Alphabet studs (I got mine here)
1. Measure the circumference of your neck by wrapping the leather tape around and marking it to the desired length. Then snip off the excess length if required
2. Attach the snap buttons evenly on both ends of the leather tape
3. Place the alphabets on the middle section of the leather tape
Done! Pretty straightforward if I must say so myself. It's fun cos you let the choker do the talking for your personality and such heh. And I don't think I need to explain why I stuck to the words 'Bad Kitty' ;)
