I'm a fan and I have always liked that jacket from "ThunderKiss 65" video. So I made a version of it a few things will be changed. But for right now, this is it.

My friends were supposed to have a party and this was going to be my costume. I made the pants too. Just made some stencils and painted up an old pair of jeans. But I still had fun.

I stitched a black skull fabric on the shoulders and a zebra print fabric on the body of a blue denim jacket. Then placed patches and buttons everywhere. Stuck with White Zombie and horror patches.

Close up of the right sleeve.

Now this is the one thing that I will probably change. Its the right design but it should take up alot more of the back.

Pretty awesome looking.  I agree with you, the patch on the back would stand out much more if it was bigger - the black and white fabric kind of overwhelm it right now.  Otherwise it looks like you put a lot of work into that.  Thunderkiss 65 is probably my fav White Zombie song - it really gets my blood roaring whenever I hear it.  But I admit I don't think I ever saw the video.  Then again, that was a period in university when I did not have more than 3 channels on TV.

Rob, is that you?!?   ;)That is a completely awesome costume!  The jacket looks amazing. 

Thunderkiss '65 has got to be my favorite White Zombie song as well.  All I remember of the video is that it was shot partly in a desert?  Some black and white?  Now I have to youtube it..... Cheesy

Thunderkiss was my all time favorite song in High School!!  I'm going to have that bass line in my head all night now  Grin

Oh.  And the jacket is great too.  Very well made!

art should not exist for the sake of itself

Totally awesome! I think I need one... but then I'd have to find someone who looks like you to wear it!

Now all I want to do is listen to some lovely songs. My parents had a talk with me as a child about Living Dead Girl Smiley
