Thank yew sweet stranger! :)
Eyebrows- eyeshadow primer (I use urban decay), thin angled brush, blue eyeshadow (the one in the sweetheart pallet from Sugar Pill is really good). Wet your brush or use a white cream base if they aren’t looking intense enough.
Binder- I basically just sewed a very tight tank top, using another shirt I had as a reference for the pattern. I put a double layer of fabric in front for maximum squashing. Make sure you use fabric with lots of give/streachyness or you can hurt yourself! Take care of that ribs cage you got just one okay? If the fabric is thicker it holds its shape better, that’s why I chose stretchy velvet.
I got the fabric from a thrift store dress that was really long. I cut and hemmed it to a proper slut length as I always do, and was left with enough fabric scraps to piece the binder together.
Edit: use a zig zag stitch or an overlock sewing machine to stitch up the sides or your seams with rip. it you don’t have access to sewing machines that do that, or are sewing by hand, just triple or quadruple stitch that shit!
My progress thus far of my goal of sewing sequins onto every lapel I can get my grubby little femme paws on.
It’s a 4 layers of slips instead of ‘real’ clothes kind of day. They are all thrifted vintage that I modified. Sweater was a hand-me-down that I decorated. Lace hairbow made by me. Foot Traffic tights. Thrifted docs that I modified.
