One of the downsides to the alternative subculture scene is the cost of maintaining our appearance. Clothing, shoes, accessories, hair products, and cosmetics are all necessary, albeit expensive aspects of creating an eccentric and unique look. When our finances suffer, so does our fashion.The best way to keep the peace between your wallet and your wardrobe is to invest some time in a little DIY. Many people shy away from Do It Yourself projects, convinced that they are incapable of running a sewing machine, applying fabric paint, or using a glue gun. Believe me when I say, it isn't as hard as it seems. There are all kinds of DIY projects out there, for all types of DIYers. So whether your skill level is "I can thread an overlock machine blind folded" or "I don't even know what an overlock machine is!"...there is bound to be a project that you can master.
