Description

This started out as a plain rubber jacket that I bought in Atlanta for $14 in 1998. Since then, it has taken many forms and this is the final. I am nearly 25 years old, and I can’t justify dressing like an idiot (even a really cool-looking one) anymore. The sides are corseted. The graffiti says “Free Steve Chung” which is such a nerdy comic reference that I wouldn’t ever expect anyone to get that. Anyway, enjoy the pics.

Material Notes

Rubber jacket base; hand-covered buttons of self fabric; red spray paint; steel grommets, spikes, studs and screws; cotton twine and thread.

All the things in this world that pissed me off enough to mutilate this jacket.

    When you get some time, you should post some more pictures of this and the Cape Dracula, I feel as though with the current light I just can’t see the details, but your stuff looks absolutely fabulous! Amazing work, you do a great job. =)
