    ive got some neoprene leggings, its easy to pierce with a needle if thats what you mean?

    Yeah. I am thinking of a legit scuba suit which probably would be very uncomfortable if you wear it everyday. Maybe I will go spandex or some other material, though neoprene does hold its shape and wont crease and stuff whereas spandex or microfibre will fold, wrinkle and crease etc.

    i find mine to be hot, but ive worn them in the last two weeks and not the winter(which i plan to)
    im not sure if its because its not a breathable material or because of the humidity in this spring weather. either way they are comfortable to wear. they give my legs a "bounce" when i walk...if that makes sense.

    Heres the sweatpants, probs just wear it in the house. Makes my hips looks like a 50 year old woman because i sized up. looks kinda like a drop crotch but if i find normal sized sweats ill do another one. dont really care it was like $7.

    I might patch some random stuff on the elbows with leather? or denim or some crap. Anyone have an idea of making a cloak or like a jedi robe kinda thing? The thing with DIYing is that if you make it look like it was DIYed, probably the chaing colour etc, it makes it look old and used and stuff. But like with fits; you can copy another fit of a real pair or shirt and itll look fine and real.

    No offense to the leather doodz, but as there are already several threads devoted to leather accessory crafting, it would be nice if we could keep this one garment-related.

    Same here. Was just thinking about replacing the buttons with some blue or orange ones. Small changes, big rewards.

    Maybe.

    @xcrunch: those actually look pretty good. lol at $9,000,000 sweatpants done at home for $7.

    Come winter Synthese will realise his folly and start sowing every appendage back on in an attempt to cope with a reversal of the weather...

    So far this summer my DIY has consisted of:

    cutting drkshdw combo pants into shorts

    cutting rick swing shorts into shorter swing shorts

    cutting the sleeves off a pleasure principle hoodie

    I shouldn't be allowed near scissors.


    Oh right. Those got turned into shorts.

    LOl yeah its roomy in the crotch for ultimate comfort and snug in the legs to keep me warm. Next ill do a sweatshirt, the weekend is finished maybe next time. I was thinking of getting silver buttons metal buttons and chucking them on or somehow making the pocket flaps all grey?
