I'm the first one, no suprise, but anyway...

What I had was originally was a "leftover" orange shirt from a thrift-related swap, along with some jeans with small hole in the knee also found at Goodwill

The shirt, I cut off the collar, added ribbons as straps & also at the shoulders. I also sliced the sleeves down the side.

(Not a good pic with the sun)

I also cut off a section of the shirt & added an "undershirt" (also a thrift store find), sewn to the shoulders.

I did something with the "Abercrombie & Fitch" logo on the shirt covering up (to the best of my abilities) with a "bloody Rainbow" ( I got it from a picture mag) & added Iron-on letters.

For the cuffs, I sewed them together for a "fingerless glove" look

For the jeans, I took what I cut off from the shirt, patched up the hole in the knee

& just simply covered the other knee with another piece of the fabric & drew a Keith Haring- inspired angel on it.

So here's me "modeling" the stuff

(Again, not very good pics. I took better of the dog)

Any way the jeans were about 4-5.99 & the A&F was about 2.99. The "Undershirt", I can't really remember how much it was, only I got it super cheap (Goodwill had a "4 for the price of one" type of deal when it came to shirts one day, I guess). Minus the Ribbons, Acrylic paint & the iron-ons, it came up to around $8-9.
