DIY – Studded denim jacket

January 8, 2012
A few weeks ago I was watching True Blood and really liked this denim jacket Pam, the mean vampire was wearing. I’m not usually a fan of denim but I liked this particular jacket a lot:

So I started investigating and found out that it’s the Blessed & Cursed Couture Jacket. I also found some more detailed photos of Rihanna wearing it, and it gave me a good idea of the details. Given all this, I figured the price tag would be higher than I’d ever be willing to pay for it and thought I could do it myself. 

So I went on Ebay, found a second hand distressed denim jacket from Next and ordered studs and spikes in several sizes, as well as crystal beads. It took a month for all of them to arrive from Asia but it was worth the wait. With all the materials scattered around I sat down and after two films (The Guard and 200 Cigarettes), it was ready:

I still have some leftover studs that I’ll probably use in something like this:

(I can’t remember where I found this photo)

Now all I have to do is wait for the weather to warm up a little bit so I can wear it!
