I was born in the year of the monkey,so it’s only natural that everything shiny and gold-y and and glimmering catches my attention.
But of course!Even if it’s in a hardware store and it’s supposed to be a door handle part.Technically speaking , these shiny golden metal rings are called escutcheons, but I rather call them golden eyes. I don’t discriminate by assigned purpose.One man door handle is another monkey- love- golden eye outfit.With just a touch of urban industrial.
The minute I lay my eyes on these ”golden eyes” I knew that they can be perfect for my dark-knight all leather skirt and a jacket.
First I attached them by hand on my leather skirt,using leather needle and strong tread.
Also added some ”love” in the mix-in a form of an wide elastic belt with golden letters
Next came an old vinyl gold coaster which I cut with pinking shears and sew in the middle and sides of a simple black cap.
Followed by the 2 golden eyes, or more like golden horns-ha,monkey with horns?
I dug out some old leather gloves and sew 2 more golden eyes on them.
Couldn’t resist to goldy-fy my boots too.
Aaand here I am,”funking the dumb stuff” in zero degree weather monkey outfit, completed with gorilla like fake fur hooded jacket and furry bag.
Inspired by ”Funk the dumb stuff ” Tower of power number:
