    When I first started getting into punk during high school I dressed the part quite a bit. Spiked my hair up, wore baggy, dirty clothes. Got mistaken for a guy a lot, actually, haha.
    My style's gone through some changes and experimentation throughout the years. For now I dress like a more feminine version of my high school self. Shave half my head, wear steel toed work boots I got at the second hand store, I like to show off my figure more than I did as a teenager.
    The irony is that my parents used to say the whole thing was just a stage, when it turned out that dressing/acting at all "normal" was the stage, haha. I always find myself gravitating back to punk music/ideals, and dressing this way is how I feel the most beautiful and comfortable.
    Of course, I'm only 20. Who knows what I'll look like in another 10 years.
    Pretty sure I'll still have the same ideals in my heart, though :)

    I just have my big-ass straw hat I spraypainted the Scottish flag on top of and a bunch of white shirts I write shit on in sharpie, like "Chelsea Manning for President". Trying to DIY a denim vest I got, turns out the only thing I'm worse at than sewing is making stencils. I can't figure out how to do negative space WITHIN the positive space, if that makes sense. Also I suck at taking a box cutter to a plastic binder.

    Have you tried bleach or fabric paint? Might be easier for you than stencils. Those bastards can be tricky.

    Staples sells word cut out stencils an they come in different sizes. They look like crass titles which is pretty simple to make at home but all the letters are uniform etc and a pack of medium small ones are only four dollars. That with spray paint makes some pretty legit punk stuff. i
    i was in a hospital and one of the guys there was a graffiti artist in the 80s and I had him draw me a jobbykrust stencil on a sweater, and I have a bunch of tight jeans, (three black one white one red and one burgundy that and colored sweaters are my main garments of choice. but one of the pairs of pant is all punked out, I had a disorder style punk jacket straight jacket that was trimmed with yellow but I outgrew it in a year. The zippers couldn't touch anymore. So my guess was some wise asshole stole it from me because I'm not punk enough and god didn't give me the right permit. I still have some patches and some studs leftover so I am going to take a pair of black pants and checker them with one once dome studs. The patches on my pants are, crass conflict discharge the discocks doom anti sect antiproduct riot clone system aus rotten antischism apolitical cress the mob and finally avskum. I'm going to buy some skirts and I'm going to put a confuse patch on one. It's going to be a shiny rainbow acid pattern with confuse in punk cut out letters. When I made my order the guys forgot to put in a d.i.r.t. And a resist and exist patch. The dirt one was going to be on a sweater.

    The skirts are coming from online. I'm going to get evicted If I don't buy more female clothes. They are like 3 dollars each and they are pretty cool. I just turned 18 3 months ago. Don't punks use this site? Or am I alone? There are also a bunch of people who want to sue me etc if I don't change the way I look. Did you guys know that zillah minx from rubella ballet sells UV black light fabric paint on eBay?

    I think I know what you mean... I guess you could paste the whole lot onto a screen, like on a silkscreen... or even simpler, you could just paste the stencil, along with the negative bits straight onto your vest and then just peel it off after spraypainting it. Otherwise you'd have to leave a "bridge" like in that army- / Crass-type lettering.

    Sti, you've got to explain this one to me. I'm dying of curiosity o_O

    Thanks, everyone. I had hit a wall, idea-wise.

    I also want to know about this. :/

    I just don't want to offend other girls. For men to like the way I look compared with how I act it doesn't make sense for a lot of people. It makes people pretty angry. People want to sue me me and I don't want to hurt their feelings. I have decided that taking care of myself as a girl is the right thing to do. People think I don't, I do, but I have to look like what people want to believe. Coming from me to you.

    To be honest no matter how true or dark or honest something is eventually it BECOMES and individual ad that is that individual, that is something that people are okay with, sad to say, then enough will be said. That's called punk. That idea is in fact okay.

    I'm sorry, I still don't understand. What do you mean by "sue" you?
    What do you mean by "taking care of (yourself) as a girl"?. Do people think you're crust?

    Yes, people should be themselves. And in thoughts, and in fellowship, and in clothing.

    To the OP, dress down for casual occasions, there is a way to do this style minimally. Dave Trenga just wears a band shirt and plain. army shorts. Some people dress like the train hoppers which is free of patches but has mixed with crust fashion.
