Dunno why I've been on a purple kick lately...but whatever.  I like purple.  lol




Went to the thrift store and saw a pair of purple jeans:



For only $6.99!



They're not something I would normally wear, so I said "okay, if they fit me, I'll buy them".....and what do you know, they wound up being exactly my size (which is a 12, which is pretty amazing that they fit, imo).

So I bought them, distressed them a bit:








And painted and glittered them with Tulip black fabric paint, star stencils, some freehanding, and some Tulip permanent fabric glitter (the wet spots and white spots were from the glitter--they later dried):








And then I bedazzled them! Cheesy
(just in the middle of the little explode-y parts....dunno how else to describe them...)

Aaannnnd this is what they look like on (with my black and purple belt to match! Cheesy)

Let me know what you think!  Smiley

I won't kill you, but I might kill MCR, since I really don't like them. -.-
Lol, seriously though, thanks! Cheesy

And lol, I dunno about that, but they're fairly easy to make if you have some stencils, fabric paint, scissors, tweezers, glitter, and a bedazzler (or just some diy clothing studs). I say you should make your own pair and post them here too so I can ogle them, lol. c( :

Hmmm, if I happen to find a pair of purple jeans during one of my frequent trips to GW & other thrift stores I'll take on that challenge!!!   Cheesy

Keep up the good work!

I know, they aren't everyone's cup of tea. I did mean it in the best way, though. And I do really love these pants. ^_^
