Trying on the pentagram harness / body chain

I mentioned in an earlier post that when I re-made a Killstar Pentagram belt, I had some metal pentagrams left over.  Well…. I got around to making up a harness/ body chain using two of them, in time for an event I attended in October 2022.

It’s a bit long coming for a blog post… and I don’t have a ton of photos, so this is a super quick post.

Killstar belt – plus size edition

Wearing the re-made Killstar pentagram belt

I fell in love with this pentagram belt from Killstar… (ridiculous shipping and duty and exchange rate aside…) but alas, like so many things meant for the goth crew – it came in “one size” – which is always just a little too small for me.  (And proportionately wrong too.. I want the pentagrams to go ALL the way around, not just on the front…)

SO – shipping and duty and exchange rate be damned – I ordered two of them.

When they arrived, I kept the buckle and the strap with the holes from one belt, and started slicing up all of the fake leather straps between the rest of the pentagrams.

I’ve been loving some of the strappy harnesses I see on goth-stagram (Goth Instagram… I guess it’s like goth-tok..lol) and went to order one for myself, but… felt the same feeling I often do when I see stuff I like on size 2 models…  Even though the measurements SOUND like they’re going to fit – I always worry with “one size” – that the proportions will be all wrong.

Instead of placing and order, I decided to make my own.

Event patch gift

Custom event patches made for some friends as a surprise

Custom event patches made for some friends as a surprise

While I was in the Maker Space making cool embroidered things, including a patch for myself to commemorate a group I was once involved in, I thought I’d put that same thought to work for some friends.

Summer 2022, some friends hosted a super cool event, and invited me to join them just outside of Edmonton. The event had originally been scheduled for 2021, but had been postponed officially until 2022 because of Covid. They intend to host it again in 2023 (and hopefully I’ll be able to attend again, cus it was awesome!) and I thought that having a few patches for the organizers (and maybe a few for them to give away as door prizes?) would be a cute gift, especially if they like having patches on their vests/etc too.
