I actually finished the jacket in January. But I did the pants today. I was debating whether or not they would be dumb, but I think they are neccessary.
I'm going to see MCR next week at the Vancouver V-fest so I did my wardrobe test today and made my mom take pictures. I think I won't wear the spooky eyes though, and I don't know if I will be allowed to wear the bullet belt? (large outdoor venue)
If you're going as well I DEMAND A HUG OR HIGH-FIVE.
Anyway, the jacket I had already but it was khaki/grey and had brass-looking buttons so I dyed it black (twice), sewed the ribbon on, painted myself an armband, added the D-rings and lacing on the back, made epaulettes, and sewed on 22 buttons. The pants I pegged and sewed ribbon onto.
I actually made this before I even knew MCR were coming, when I found out that MCR and AFI were playing Vancouver in the same weekend I got up and danced around my kitchen for 10 minutes. I sincerely hope I survive this festival, last time I saw MCR was 2 years ago and I left bleeding from the face and unable to move half of my body, and last time I saw AFI I somehow ended up sitting on the steps of an ambulance?
Though the Revenge era was by far their best, it isn't relevant now and they've been dressing a lot fancier lately.
