vil Twin‘s new lookbook is bursting with DIY inspiration. Grab an old black pair of tights and put them on (or may be easier to get a friend to put them on so you can access them better), get some chalk/white pen and do an outline of the skeleton and then fill in the outline with white acrylic paint. Or, you could do a stencil with paper and place that on the tights and paint over it with white paint. You could buy them for next to nothing here, but that would defeat the DIY purpose, right?

Studs may have been done to death, but still like when they are done in a subtle way. I guess studs have to be delicate and not-in-your-face now to still work. For this DIY, or similar ones where you might stud a shirt cuff etc, I would use spikes like the ones here. These have a screw at the back which is soooo much easier than the ones where you need to fold the steel over at the back – blood covered fingers are bad! Also the spikes are so much more precise in terms of locating them in a line.

Add a nice chain of ostrich feather down the backs of your suede thigh high boots for a gorgeous detail. If you take it on with pins or some light stitches along the back seam of the boot you will then be able to remove it when you are done with that look (I am thinking one night of fun would be enough for me).
