and :iconhoukiboshi: *bottom right photo*
(thank you hasubando~sama~)

I've always wanted to make something i designed myself and slap it all together into some sort of Fashion Magazine feature page-ish collage.

This is a jacket/vest that I designed and made for myself.
It was great for experimenting zipper and buckle work.

Inspirations came from Claymore civilian clothing and Shibuya/Visual Kei style clothing and also various fantasy games and anime costumes.

The sleeves are attached at the shoulder with zippers so they can be removed when you feel hawwt, and the removed sleeves can be fastened onto our arms to make arm bands/ arm warmers /whatever you call them. xD

The naming of this inspired from Evangelion 1.0, the filmbook.....the battle stations in the city is called "Variable Tokyo 3".......

So.....*rips it off and slaps it onto self*
:P you have permission to rofl.

I hope you enjoy this as much I did making it ^^

Hello! I bought your vest years back (I'm on a new account now).
I'm planning on wearing it next month when I go to Harujuku (Don't worry-- will take plenty of pics for you to see later!).

I was reviewing how you had worn this, and I noticed you have some stuff hanging off the collar. Looks pretty interesting. What are they? Maybe I can do something similar.

Also, the white straps on the shoulders. Are they for hanging stuff off as well?
I guess what I'm asking is, is there any particular recommendations you'd have for how I should wear this in Harujuku. <3

OH hey!!!! How have you been?
I just put on some random pins and little chains on top. It's up to you really. Please feel free to decorate it however you like!!

I have no specific suggestions haha. I just wore it however I felt like on the day. :P

Have fun with it!! :) And have an epic time in Harajuku <3

I'm in the US Navy now, lol. Stationed in Japan. Looks like you're still doing as good as ever. Little bit disappointed you haven't made any more of your OWN fashion designs, though.

Thank you and I will have fun. Many many pictures. Hopefully video too!

Gotta say, that sheets BA man! I love the sleeve idea! They look awesome as armbandmadoddles too!
Gotta try making something like that if I ever get my sewing skills up to par to yours ;w;!
