ThreadBanger is a very specialized how-to site that provides various tutorials for tailors, sewing buffs, or just about anyone who wants to experiment with DIY fashion.
Throughout this month, each webisode of ThreadBanger focuses on Halloween costume ideas for people to make themselves. That is, if you don’t mind saving a ton of money.
Thread Heads, the most prominent show on the ThreadBanger network, is hosted by Rob Czar and Corinne Leigh- indie designers that travel around the US to support local craft fairs and upcoming artists. Basically, if you’ve got a DIY fashion question, they have the answer.
Rookies Stay Away
If you’ve never used a sewing machine before, or if your only incentive to make your own clothing is to save a few bucks, then I suggest that you stay away from this site. Many of the tutorials fly by the basics very quickly. Rookies could give it a shot, but it wouldn’t be pretty.
Make Your Own Strait Jacket
In this latest webisode, Rob and Corinne show you how to make your very own strait jacket costume. For more Halloween costume ideas (some are easier/cheaper than others) keep visiting ThreadBanger this month.
