It's a cool idea in theory; unfortunately the sorority girls beat you to it.

Really? I imagine a scene/emo girl would be more likely to wear this to a post hardcore show than a "raver" girl wear this to EDC.

And it's supposed to be a ribcage but looking at it now it does resemble lungs.

Well, for the most part it's girls who jumped onto that music scene when Skrillex got popular, so you don't see those shirts at any of the better shows, but at things like ID fest, EDC, avicii/skrillex/SHM etc "bro raves" probably 50% of the girls are wearing that.  For example:

Yours isn't neon though so there's that, i just wanted to give you a heads up that it's like a 'thing'

"Hot girls started liking our music.. IT'S RUINED!"
post #575 of 1086
I've never heard any good dubstep (although i'm sure some may exist), but it is frankly more annoying when hot girls start liking it.

Hey, you're pretty hot, i may actually want to fuck you.

Oh no, i'm sure you're only kidding when you run onto the dancefloor at that unmistakeable sound.

you're doing that bounce now.

This is all some bad joke isn't it?

Except Skrillex and Avicii fall into a completely different category. They've basically hijacked the genre in the U.S. and now that's what most people think of when they hear the word dubstep. It sounds like utter shit whether or not hot girls listen to it.

I honestly love UK garage/dupstep/2-step stuff but I do have to agree most of the clubs with this type of music is in general more dudes than girls. Atleast here in the states. The UK might be a different story.

Did a really simple DIY today with a pair of Replay jeans that were perhaps just a bit too short, and the fit was kinda "meh", and I need more shorts, so:

Now I have a pair shorts with a fit superior anything I've ever tried on in a store, but black is kinda boring...
so any suggestions?
Right now I'm thinking just bleaching them like hell, to get them light-grey, but if anyone has any cooler ideas?

read back a few posts

black dosent bleach to grey it bleaches to other colors like orange. you would have to bleach them white and then dye them grey
post #580 of 1086

Haha, I read the whole thread before posting and still figured they would turn grey since they originally were black, but I now realize that was kinda retarded laugh.gif
Anyhow, it's not that I specifically want them grey, I just want them in some lighter color.

dont fuck with the color, its fine. if you gotta spice it up add some polkadot patches or something, or maybe cut out a fabric and sew it to your back pockets.

dont fuckin bleach it.

Inspired by those full-grain leather belt guides... my girlfriend and I made our own full-grain leather bracelets.

Was a fun project. Recorded the full process for anybody else who'd be interested at http://classychap.com/do-it-yourself-full-grain-leather-bracelet/

This is about as DIY as I get so bare with me...

I'm sure some people have this same problem... you find a brand of t-shirts that fits perfect, except the neck line is too tight. For me the Uniqlo dry packaged shirts fit me great, but they're just too tight in the neck. It seemed like a shame to have to start the search for perfect t-shirts all over again. I'd heard of some people in waywt cutting the necks out of shirts, but I didn't like how the raw hem around the neck looked. I just needed a hem around the neck, just a wider one.

The dry packaged shirts have a pretty thick hem;

So I just cut off the ribbed part and left the stitched over bit, so it looked like this;

(please excuse the photography, my phone made the shirt look yellowed)

Turned out way better than I thought it would, I recommend you try it if you want a slightly wider neck on your shirt.

looks good, I might try that

I just bought some riri zips to add to the arms of my uniqlo sweater (zippers cost more than the sweater :/ ). Has anyone done this?
post #585 of 1086

Zippers are a pain in the ass. Go buy some cheaper zips and practice with those on stuff you don't care about (assuming you care about uniqlo sweater???!!!). Also you're gonna want to up the tension on your machine and stretch the knit as you sew, otherwise the sipper won't lie flat if that makes any sense. Zippers suck sewing with knits sucks
