Anyway, I'm gonna cut to the chase on this post and not put up the during pictures. Cause they're dark and they suck.
So here's my step by step:
1. find something you like and if it's cheap
2. buy it
3. take it apart
4. paint it a color you love
5. put it back together when its DRY (I'm still working on this one)
when I found these they were $40 for the pair. Looked like they should have been in Tron.
as per the usheee, props to Vanessa de Vargas for this ispiration:
The tassels were made by ripping a part a big cheap tassel thing from Jo-ann fabrics, super-gluing the rope part back onto itself, and then super-gluing gold leather belt fabric around it. I still have glue on my fingers but I was like possessed ..... MUSt....... HAvVE...... TassELSSSSS
monkeys! And remember that Adler knockoff I knockedoff?? It's white now. Memories...
