DIY…GOOGLY EYE TIGHTS?

Some of you loving readers may remember: the googly eyes mask. Dun dun dun!

But we’re past that now. It’s time to evolve. Now, I must give credit where credit is due – except I have no idea where credit is due! Who started the embellished tights trend? I know there’s plenty of etsy sellers with stunning, over-the-top embellished tights. Lirika Matoshi, in particular, is well-known for their embellished tights. However, we won’t be doing anything that fancy today. No, my goal is much simpler and much more focused: we must create googly eye tights.


GOOGLY EYE TIGHTS: A NON-TUTORIAL

If you clicked on this thinking it would be anything more than me telling you to stick some googly eyes of a pair of fishnets, I’m sorry to disappoint you. That’s exactly what I did.

TIP: USE A PIECE OF CARDBOARD, DON’T be lazy like me and use a left-over amazon mailer.

Also, I’d recommend something like E-6000 Glue. However, I used this “Shoe Goo” because in my delirium, I thought it was my E-600 glue. Turns out I don’t have any E-6000. Shoe Goo worked anyway.


Anyway, I just created a simple diamond pattern, and altered each row’s placement.

One side done!

And to ensure that both sides were even (they are not) I put the tights on and began to stick them on while wearing it. This is how I stopped the glue from getting on my leg.


Did this method work? Of course not. Somehow, my tights are still slightly uneven unless I align them perfectly when they’re on. 

Effin’ communists. Annnywaaay….here they are in all their glory!

So the saga continues…but what will be next, you ask? It’s up for you to decide!

Googly eye…

Purse/backpack?
or
Shoes!

    1. I have not worn them out yet – but I imagine I will be doing a lot of shimmying around! I’m putting together an entire googly-eye outfit first. Should I do the shoes or the purse/backpack next?

            1. It’s more social media promoting than I’ve done for myself, haha. I fear I may have to wander onto instagram soon – which terrifies me because instagram comments are almost as bad as Facebook and Youtube comments.

  1. Now I know what I should’ve done when I had to play 1,000-googly-eye pick-up at my daughter’s school! The kids had streaked by at pickup time, trying to avoid going home (they love their school–it’s so cool), and they knocked over an art-project tray featuring googly eyes in all colors, including pink. (Conjunctivitis?) Of course, being little kids, they didn’t stay around to clean up, so guess who took on the civic duty. Darn! I could’ve made them into a cool outfit!
