BLACK PEACE NOW: JAPANESE GOTH PUNK DIY SWEATER PROJECT BY LA CARMINA.

Black Peace Now Goth Japan lolita sweater with holes. Punk and Gothic male fashion.

Holy moly. This men’s sweater from Black Peace Now is an deconstructed Goth eye-catcher – but it costs 12390 yen ($120) and isn’t available from MaruiOne.jp (the only site that ships BPN overseas).

Black Peace Now Japan Gothic fashion brand. Gothic Lolita skirt with chain and ripped sweater on La Carmina.

If that is so… then how am I modelling this very item? Easy: I made one of my own from a school-marmy black turtleneck!

Peace Now Japanese brand, Goth Punk and visual kei costumes and clothing sold at Marui One, Shinjuku, Harajuku Tokyo.

I cut off the turtleneck and split the shirt asymmetrically down the front (pinning the collar with a World Wildlife Fund panda pin). I pinched the fabric together and cut out semi-circles for holes of varying sizes. The grey striped shirt and skewed skirt with a silver chain have been sitting in my closet for years.

DIY punk sweater and shirt project, vintage clothing turned into crazy Japanese outfits.

This is what my old clothes looked like before I pounced on them with scissors! The pants and white Nordica ski shirt were featured in the Punk/Visual Kei DIY project. The black sweaters (on the bottom row) became h.NAOTO-inspired “skull” and “bones” ripped tops. The awkward schoolteacher (top center) acquired black eyeliner and a mohawk for this salute to Black Peace Now.

Some of you mentioned that you’re going to turn your timid old clothes into punk/Goth wildcats. How did the projects go?

    All this punk DIY inspired me to try some the other day. I slashed an old poloneck that didn't fit me anymore and now it looks awesome over one of my long sleeved black and white striped tops.^^

    Nice! It's especially fun when the original garment is something lame ^__^

    Hello and sorry for my late reply… and yes I do already know your page *smile* I seem to have quite some friends who engage in some form of art, and I'm always happy to see that a girl in this society finds the time and place in life to do so… female (professional) artist are still rather rare and underappreciated. So many respect from me to you.
    Yes we do seem to share quite a few things: Oh my goth : I just recognized the Army of Lovers amonst your heroes, (we should be ashamed liking them :lol: ) Have a nice weekend!
