Two years ago, I was going through a pretty rough time (that'll end when I'm dead no doubt) and really needed something to keep my senses sharp in those dark hours. So naturally I took up sewing! I had some Immortal patches safety pinned unto a pretty banged up, lousy ass looking jacket that was thin as fuck. I took 'em off and decided to get really real real and go buy a thick, sturdy craftsman button up, then add to it some frost protection in the form of roughly 35 patches. The end result is this ridiculously-absurd, peacock-feathered, ultra-heavy, and downright protective winter gear. It's a bit over the top but I was never one to take myself quite so seriously. I did it all by hand over several weeks, using a double stitch and knot technique and a busted up back of a CD case to make sure I didn't drunkenly sew the sleeves together (it happened once or twice).
People often have a difficult time knowing if I'm joking or being serious. I just tell them "I'm serious...ly joking." Ha!
