Cheap Alternatives

Your ideas..post them here.

I have a few..you might already know them...

Makeup,
If you put foundation on your eyelases before mascara then it'll last longer..

A good idea is to use lip liners for eyeliner. You can get it cheaper, and in coluors that they don't tend to make for eyeliners, such as a bright red.

You can wet a skinny eyemakeup brush and dip it in eyeshadow and draw it on as eyeliner.

Mix eyeshadow or loose glitter with Vasealine to make a gloss that you can use anywhere, eyes, lips cheeks etc

ooh..

well I have used pairs of tights for tops before- cut off the toe bits and a hole in the crotch- espesh useful for cold weather when you want to wear something skimpy- tights are sheer and look quite sexy

yip, tights have many uses

dont spend money on expensive exfoliators, use sea salt or granulated sugar mixed with showere gel- does the trick

In my fashion class at school we had a project we had to do. We had to make a Duct tape outit. IT was sooo cool, and I had no idea duct tape came in so many outragous colours!! I mean there was florencent pink and yellow and orange...only colour i didnt find was purple.
Anways, we used red and black to make our outfit, And once I can find a scanner I have to show you the pictures we took!
I was the model, so I got to keep the thigh high black boots.
For the boots we bought rivvetes(SP??) from fabric land and pounded them in with a hammer, then laced them up all the way to the top. Pretty cheap. We used an old pair of dress shoes for the base and everything. It worked great.
For the outfit, we made hot pants(cute little shorts, like bathing suit bottom shorts). They were bright red and laced up in the front. The top was red and lace up the front. Tank top that is.
Then we made a little purse, and an armband.
Anways all in all it only cost us about 30$. Thats deffinately less than what you can buy thigh high boots for!!

Still need to find a scanner, then I can show you guys. You know, include a photo later on of it.

yea, where I am from, if we make an outfit for prom out of duct tape, say it was me and my boyfriend, we would have a chance to get a scholarship from the duct tape company.
Awesome eh?

Another cheap alternative: If you have long hair, and constantly break elastics, cut the legs off a stretchy pair of nylons and make them into little hoops. They hold your hair back pretty well, and I've never broken one.

petticoats make good skirts, if you find that they're too thin or see through, wear a couple. you can get different coloured ones. if you get them second hand, they're between a few cents and a few dollars, not bad for some new skirts.

they are also very compact and so are good for when you're on the go and need some clothes to change into.

ive been thinking about doing this to a pair of my black knee high boots. Use acrylic paint on your boots! Paint whatever you want on them. Butterflies, flames, skulls, roses... etc.
Its always great for a new look! And cheap too, cause people will think you bought a new pair of boots.

hey, i did that to a pair of docs a few years ago. but due to the wearing of it, and me not bothering to repaint them, most of it's come off. i did a butterfly on one boot and a scorpion on the other in red and orange acrylic. the paint came off lots in the bend bits which was a pain.

i think i'll have to repaint them anyhow. something more organised maybe and eventually cover them completely. it would be pretty cool to get people to add stuff. good stuff, not shit drawings.

I remember a guy and a girl in the paper here that made their outfits out of ducttape for prom. They won something.. Maybe that's what it was?

One thing I used to do for leather chokers - If yhou have a leather belt and the right materials, you can cut it and puch holes in it to make it into a choker. You can do it with anybelt really.

Got any old Pins hanging around? don't throw them out. You can pop the plastic cover off them and reuse them to make your own pins with your own pictures.

If you can sew, old sock necks, pieces of denim, vinly etc can be made into wrist bands. Decorate them with fabric paints, lace, buttons, studs and spikes, etc.

If you have any old skirts, or pieces of fabric laying around you could always add to them, make patch work skirts, etc, Or you can go to the online corset pattern genarator and Make a simple corset out of it (I've actually done this, it's easy to do and looks great!)

Then of course, you could always check out a site like http://www.gothicauctions.com to find what you're looking for, only about $1000 cheaper
