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

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

I learnt about them when I saw some silly, amusing fanarts of them from one of my fav artists so I looked into them, saw/listened the Interstella album. It got me hooked. Then there is the Tron OST I REALLY liked, too. :D

That's a cool DIY, my friend; I like it.

Unrelated: what's up with the fox furs? XD

Lol, it's cool. I don't mind other people wearing black. I just don't like to wear it. XD

And I have a few different furs. Also got some bones and antlers and such. Some stuff I use for projects. Some I have for reference. And some I have just because I like them. XD

*becomes more self-aware, but goes too far and ends up self-conscious* I think I overdid it. :I

Huh. Cool. I would probably only grab a few fake skulls (cheaper, hopefully) and a pelt, maybe, for the reference.

Yeah, I got my fox skull for a dollar because it has a broken zygomatic arch. And I have a set of spinal bones that I believe is either from a fox or a raccoon that I got for another dollar in a "suprise" bag. XD Man I miss that dealer, he always had weird deals like that. Like, he had all the nice bones and pelts, but then he had basically "scratch and dent" kind of stuff that you could get crazy cheap. Though I bought my raccoon pelt from him and he tried to sell me a 400$ black bear immediately after and I was like :iconumadbroplz:

It's a racoon, two foxes and a coyote. I got the racoon from a furrier I met at an art fair. One fox is a gift from my brother in Alaska, and the other fox and coyote are from a fur dealer in Montana.

Awyeah! Daft punk for the world!
I always argue with people saying that Daft Punk is better than Dubstep. After all the came first and they are the classics!
Interesting to know that you get uncomfortable with wearing black. Never seen that before. Can you come to SCAD to share the DP love?

Lol, I only ever took one chemistry class. Everyone in the class hated me because I set the curve really high on every test so they didn't benefit from the curbed grading at all. XD

And from left to right it's actually a raccoon, two red foxes, and a cherry coyote. I've got a cross fox, a timber wolf, and a couple rabbits, but they're in another part of the room.
