A pair of jeans decorated with lids from frozen orance juice cans. Over 125 lids on each leg! They are attached with paperclips and were made specially as part of a costume for Sarnia's annual Artwalk http://www.sarniaartwalk.com/ festival parade. A tuturial is possible if anyone wishes.

omg how crazy and fun. It's like juice lid armour! I like them as-is, but can see a lot of ideas inspired from them too.

if you modify it like a skirt and paint the lids green you could be a mermaid!  Cheesy

i had a bag full of about 400 lids that i'd been slowly collecting, maybe 4 years worth. someone mentioned a mermaid, great point especially considering the original costume concept was for that of a fish. as things turned out, constructing a fish head (a roly poly fish head?) is a lot harder than making a bird headpiece so i went with a metallic bird concept instead. i did consider painting them but ultimately decided the natural metal would be plenty shiny during the parade.

also, i'd never attempted something like this before so it took me a lot of planning and trial and error to produce the finished product. i may even add another row or two if i need to. if i had to do it again i'd want to use a drill. it would speed things up considerably.
