This is how I spent half my day yesterday by Turtle-Arts This is how I spent half my day yesterday by Turtle-Arts
So, after many years I finally resigned to the fact that you can’t buy Daft Punk jackets. The only way to get one is to have someone make one for you, or to buy one of the actual old jackets, both of which are obviously very expensive. And then I realized, duh, I’m an art person. So I decided to make my own with an extra biker-style jacket that I have. And 13$, 283 metal studs, 2 chipped thumbnails, and one Mythbusters marathon later- boop. Jacket done.

I know the jackets are usually black leather, but I have this thing where I get physically uncomfortable wearing black, so mine is dark brown. I’m super happy about it, because for the first time I actually have something related to a band that’s been one of my personal faves since elementary school. Now I can share my love of DP with everyone. Yup. Watch out- it’s coming for you. XD

Fair warning- you're gonne need a lot of studs, and don't try to do it with your bare hands. XD

Lol, yes I remember that. But I never had one. I ended up applying the studs with a pair of pliers and a butter knife. XD
