DIY Painted Tights

February 10th, 2010 by Cobwebs

TightsI ran across this cute tutorial over at Naughty Secretary Club and was inspired to try something similar. I made a few changes and had some additional comments, so I figured it was worth posting a modified how-to of my own.

Painted tights are quite fashionable right now, but can be outrageously expensive. Jennifer’s great DIY take on them is cheap, easy, and infinitely customizable. I tried a fairly simple calavera for my first attempt, but it’d also be fun to do trailing thorns or dripping blood down the whole leg. If you’re really feeling ambitious, you could paint the outlines of leg bones for an X-ray look.

    I love this idea! However, I don’t think the ‘blood dripping down the leg’ thing appeals to me. It may seem like you forgot a tampon!
