It's been a real long time since I've been here guys and I'm excited to be back! So here we go:

I find that store bought skeleton leggings never line up right, so I decided to make my own.

Materials:  a god book, pre-washed leggings, trash bags, chalk, reference photos, lower body, and some kind of bleach pen (I used one for cleaning tiles that contained bleach) or thickened bleach and paintbrush.

step one-put on pre-washed leggings

step two-cut long wide strips of trash bags

three-stuff leggings with trash bag strips, to cover entire front of leg (to protect skin from bleach)

four and five-with chalk and reference photos sketch a rough outline of the skeleton on your leggings, be sure to line the bones up to yourself by feeling your hipbones, shins, knees ect.

six-get ready for bleach!

seven-sit on an opened trash bag, and use the bleach to complete your designs by following your outline and adding a little detail (crosshatching, shading, splatters, whatever you want!) sit still and read a good book for a few minutes until the bleach soaks in and the designs begin to show (the longer you wait the whiter the design will be)

eight-rinse your leggings (you can take them off and rinse if you want, I just jumped in the shower with them on)

nine-wash in hot water, neutralize the bleach whatever way you predfer (i like hydrogen peroxide) and dry (gentle cycles in machines, hand wash is fine too)

ten-flaunt it sexybones!

These are Wicked!

"There are days when I think there really is some huge great tapestry of a plan out there and we're all woven into it - this fabulous, complex pattern of life and death, full of recurring motifs and waves of color, and we're each one tiny thread in the weave.
