N&F skinny guys 22oz DIY - Starbabes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Four months ago, I received a message after I posted the thread: Thavar 8Y9 DIY.

 

 

The message was sent by an netizen ID.Starfish in Northern Taiwan. 

 

He is the host of Gentry forum.

 

 

He wanna send a few pairs of jeans to me for DIY.

 

That means to do something on them such as patching,destroying,washing and especially painting.

 

 

I reply that is OK, but I'm not pro so that I'll do it very slowly.

 

Package is sent to my work place ...

 

There are three pants in the Jo Malone paper handbag.

 

I scanned details of the pants , pick the thickest & most interesting one...

 

And...

 

Go to play^^

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until one day I asked : "Mom , I outgrown these pants, are them sisters' ?  Why are they in my room ?"

 

It's one month later... OMG...I forget it !!

 

 

It needs a beginning ...

 

I bought a few starfish zombies in Anping Old Street.

 

 

Because it stinks bought, I spent a lot of time to soak disinfectant , wash with chopsticks tucked ...

 

Tidbits:

Starfish are echinoderms, not shellfish or crustaceans, so what we see in the store, calling " fossil" but just dried bleached corpse.

That is, it's cortex flesh and horny, if washing is not enough, there will still be horribly fishy smell, like corpse distributed.

Be careful.

 

 

 

I bought a British DYLON pink dye , plus 80 degrees Celsius hot water

 

And I hand-dyed fabrics, for the patch.

 

 

After dried , the color pink cloth is really shallow, sub-standard ...

 

So I hand-painted stained ...

 

 

 

I painted with ideaSTOFFA fabric paint pigments.

 

After completion , is a piece of PatrickStar's skin ...

 

After washing, drying, waxing and ironing, completed a part...

 

 

And I handcraft the jeans...

 

Almost new Naked & Famous Skinny Guys Elephant Skin 22oz

 

In this section, I spend more time... about two weeks, including full trousers water wash & sun light bath ...

 

I put a starfish zombie in left back pack and brushing it...

 

 

 

Uninterrupted with damp rag, Grinder, pumice ...

 

 

 

 

Then the biggest test of will, most articles focus on a description of the whole process ...

 

That is ...

 

Painting !!

 

The first problem I encountered was...

 

The flat pad is too big...

 

I cut it with PROXXON...

 

 

Began ...

 

Painted ... super slowly ...

 

Cuz the ElephantSkin 22oz denim absorbing water & pigment very much...

 

This is my first time using Italian ideaSTOFFA cloth painting pigment ...

 

It's thicker, brighter, stronger coveraging than Japan DELETER NEOPIKO-3

 

I know that adding alcohol can make acrylic painting quick-drying to reduce the effect of the bubble ...

 

However, the doctor had told me : "Don't touch alcohol, otherwise you lumbar spine injury will be never rescued"

 

Therefore ... knowing that it dries slowly, still work slowly and so on ...

 

I always comfort myself by some words:

 

"Truths go obvious, nudes go obscene"

 

Step by step ...

 

After a week...

 

 

At this prototype has been largely rendered, the naked beauty is "Queen Ameri"...

 

My netizen ID.Starfish has said that Japanese pornstar Ameri Ichinose is one of his idols...

 

It's a Parody Designer of Starbucks

 

Because I always feel that the two-tailed, crown-wearing Siren of Starbucks is like a mermaid in the promotion of Indian yoga ...

 

FHM has played a joke with Starbucks, funny idea...

 

 

Then still a week ...

 

 

 

After the painting is completed, waxing and ironing ...

 

 

During this ironing process, the painting is damaged, so the queen image became more vintage ...

 

I originally wanted to put the following kind of green & white knit tights

 

If I really did, it will be more like Siren of Starbucks...

 

But then think about these tights is likely to destroy the beauty of the picture, let the lower body and the green background be melt together...

 

Well, this pair of beautiful legs are decided to present by the most shy way ...

 

 

 

Right back pocket pattern is made as a simple kind of painting like Evisu or Momotaro...

 

I think of the beach pants of Patrickstar...

 

 

That's simple but bright and clear ... a pocket pattern for ID.Starfish especially ...

 

And the Inside of left front pocket ...

 

The association is from"Greek Girls Picking up Pebbles by the Sea"

 

 

Imagining Aphrodite pulls up her skirt and bent over to pick up a starfish ...

 

Thus, the painting "Goddess Love You" was born

 

 

In fact, goddess' favorite things are not only starfishes ...

 

PaintedJeans too.

 

 

 

When DIY progress was nearing completion ...

 

I started making a packing carton...

 

 

 

 

Referencing the material of LVC carry-on bag,

 

I use lighter-pound prime cloth to make a dust bag...

 

And I painted with Japan DELETER NEOPIKO-3

 

 

It took five hours, because the fabrics are so thin & transparent that I have no chance of error modification

 

 

 

Facial painting is ox demon king,

 

A Tauren Chieftain kind of role in Chinese classic myth story book "Journey to the West"

 

 

 

As to know why making an "endless love for you" gesture?

 

Ah ...

 

Cuz Aaron Kwok took the role in The Monkey King (2013)

 

 

 

 

Upon completion... Can't wait to take a pic ...

 

 

Before mailing back the jeans, the only one pic of me & my works was unfortunately hand shaked and blurred ==

 

The following are the details ...

 

Front: As you can see, the focus of the left thigh was robbed ...

 

 

 

 

Back: Saturation This pigment is really horrible ... so the pants off color dim repeat itself

 

 

 

Queen: "my courtier, you, come on"

 

 

 

 

Queen: "baby You can be a little closer."

 

 

 

Queen: "To be honest, dare you wear me to the street ?"

 

 

Courtier: "I do not dare, my Queen."

 

 

Right back pocket ...

 

 

 

 

Left rear pocket ...

 

 

 

Right inside midfielder: starfish limited (Sorry about hand shaked defocus)

 

 

 

Right thigh: Star silhouette with gradient blue line hand-sewn, and then coated with a dark blue

 

 

Theoretically, the stars through a long outline more obvious, and showed a gradient blue and white chiaroscuro irregular

 

A seam on a nine planets ...

 

Inspired by the movie ImmortalBeloved, the young Beethoven ran away from home to the shallow marshes...

 

Floating, and let water stream his body... to forget the heavy pressure of being forced to practice piano by his father...

 

At the clear night, all stars reflecting on the water, young Beethoven looks like floating in the sky, the Milky Way ...

 

The right leg, a symbol of great artists such as deep and all-encompassing universe right brain, also means bright & extraordinary life...

 

Named "Deep Blue Sea & Silent stars"

 

 

Making a tag, just posturing...

 

"I promise you can't see another pair of jeans like this."

 

"If you can..."

 

"......"

 

 

 

"So what!?"

 

 

 

 

Drawstring is my personal selection of fabrics and tailoring

 

 

 

Storage folded Starbabes really just fine, no extra space ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are more beautiful, more detailed graphics about ID:Starfish's unboxing in Gentry forum...

 

Above, thank you for watching.
