This is a question DIY fashion

As a teenager I went to the Venice Carnival. I made a mask out of a paper plate, got a metal coathanger and bent it into horns around my head and draped a black tshirt over that. At the time I thought I looked really cool, but thinking it over...

Tell us about your own oh-so-cool fashion innovations.

About 1988 - I got my mum to take-in my tracksuit pants, so that it looked like I was wearing leggings.
I was a chubby l'il fucker, too, so it looked like I had blobby, grey sausages attached to my fluoro-t-shirted, rotund body ...

Almost-grunge-era: wore spray-on jeans in bright red and green ... also had an 80's perm (it was 1991)...

Grunge era - bought a couple of flannelette shirts from K-mart, wore them with some cheap-arse looking, "faded" K-mart jeans, that I ripped myself, accessorised with a purple tea-cosy hat ... doesn't sound very grunge, and I was probably mocked by all and sundry ...

Uni - purple Docs, full-length, purple velvet skirt (home-made), cheesecloth shirts, op-shop cardies in purple hues, bright-pink, purple and white paisley dress, full-length, with bell sleeves ...

About 18 months ago - ripped, black tights with Converse sneakers, mesh or cheesecloth tops (or both together!), too-small, bolero-style cardies, ratted hair, bright green eyeshadow and tit-length, dangly earrings.
(Ok, I wore business wear, with my hair in a French twist & everything, to work, this was just for going down the shops etc...)

Now?
Wearing embroidered jeans (NOT from K-mart, probably Target instead), geisha-style tabi socks, and a t-shirt with collar and cuffs attached. (Kinda tacky, but makes me feel professional.)
