DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 


What you need:
  • Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)
  • Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)
  • Earring Hook
  • Metal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)
  • Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)
How To Make It:
  1. Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.
  2. Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.
  3. Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apart. 
Cost: 
For me, it didn't cost any money. I already had these supplies around the house. If you don't have these supplies, it could cost up to $20. 

 For my nose chain, I decided to use a plain silver chain and a rosary beaded necklace. This came attached together as one necklace. This was especially convenient, because I wanted to get two different chain lengths.

    1. Thank you! I've sen some nose chains that don't require a pierced nose even. Those are most common where I live.

  5. Great DIY! It is always a great idea to make things out of other already existing things, I love to do that.

    I have always wanted to try a nose chain, I got my nose pierced when I was about 18 but my body rejected it, so I have never got to do it.

    1. Most authentic nose chains clip on to the nose, so you're in luck!

Halloween DIY: Under the Dress

I took a field trip over to my local fabric store this weekend with the intention of purchasing supplies for my pillow pannier (while scouting pretty fabric and lace for my next purchase). For those of you who don't know what a pannier is, they're the big poofy false hips. Instead of making a traditional hoop pannier, which can be costly, I decided to sew two pillows. They should work just as well. 

I brought home some white muslin, which I got for $2.99/yard. I also snagged a large bag of fiberfill for $5.99. I have plenty of this stuff left over, so for the materials I used to make the pannier, it cost about $5.00. First, I cut out the shape of the pillows. After I pinned them, I prepared my machine. All in all, it was incredibly easy to sew. The whole thing took less than an hour. 
 After I sewed the pillows, I sewed up the back. I then sewed two spare ribbons to the front.

Here is the finished product. In the picture below, I am wearing an old plastic-boned corset I snagg…

My Mom Wanted me to Update my Blog

Well, I didn't plan to stop blogging. It just happened that I haven't posted in six months. A lot has happened in that time, and I owe it to my biggest fan, my mom, to post an update. Here it is, Mom!
I ended up going to a few more Goth club nights before I left Atlanta. I went with one to my best friend, who is pictured below:
Then I moved to rural Northern West Virginia where I can walk to water falls and hike up mountains. I live only 3 hours from Washington, D.C., so I've been there a few times as well. 

When Halloween came around, Ryan flew up to visit. We dressed as Titania and Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream and drove to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for a Halloween Ball. The old asylum is huge and has beautiful Gothic architecture. We brought our own beer and walked around, ogling at the elaborately dressed costumers.


I even saw Robert Smith! He seemed very pleased that I recognized him.


Then, before we knew it, Christmas arrived. My roommates and I…
