I just wanted to show a bit of my progress on this denim jacket. I few posts back, I said I wanted to make something similar to the Balmain denim jacket and let me tell you, it is work! I bought so many studs and I'm already running out again. I think I'm on a 300th stud count - not to mention, I have to buy more safety pins. I think Balmain used leather for the black panels, but I decided not to just because it would weigh the jacket down (as if it's not heavy already from all the studs). 

Side note, I did not dye my hair, but what do you guys think of this red color? I was messing around in photoshop and created this ombre red hair. (Currently, my hair is naturally ombre brown.)

Anyway, now onto some costumes/fashion from one of my favorite Kpop bands, 2NE1. Who else knows of them? I am so in love with their style (at times). Sometimes they go overboard, but this was one of my favorite music videos, "I Am the Best." Unfortunately, I don't know all the designers that created these outfits. 

Minzi wearing an awesome chainmail hood. You  know I have a chainmail fetish. :P

Sandara wearing a really cool cutout dress. Her choker is from Gareth Pugh.

I think their jackets were custom made. Amazing right?? It's so awesome to have things custom made.

Park Bom looked so sleek in this outfit. She totally rocked that spiked bra top.

CL's cool boxer champion look:

This is from Gareth Pugh's SS11 collection. Amazing right!?

What did you guys think? Anyone else listen to Kpop?
