Hey! I'm super excited to show you these new pieces my friend Jez made for me! I've kind of wanted a belt and a harness like this for a good while, but I hesitated cause EVERYONE has one - and if I were to buy one off the rack they would never fit tiny me. I guess I mentioned this on Discord, and Jez offered to make me some! And even though she lives in another country, she still managed to make them fit with her fairy gothmother magic, hahaha. Enough talk, let me show you!
Belt worn at the hips
Had to fiddle a little with the adjustments, once I found the right ones it looks great! I gave her tons of measurements, but it's still hard to make chain droop without the model!
Picked out the specific arrangements for the chains.
I specified the max length so I wouldn't sit on them, in case they would get caught.
Belt on it's smallest setting, 50 cm (less than 20'')
I wanted to be able to wear the belt two places, and she actually managed to fulfill my request! The skirt is a little in the way for the chains here.
How they arrived, super cute!
She even put tags in them, which I found a really cool detail!
Needless to say, I'm super happy with them. They will definitely be used a lot in my outfits! They're perfect for jazzing up a simple outfit like what I am wearing today. I suck at accessorizing, I just never really think about how I can jazz up what I wear. I don't know if it's because my accessories aren't in plain sight, or I just forget cause I'm happy with whatever I throw on. But these pieces will really help! I will probably wear them to death at almost every event this year. I think they will last a long time though! The leather the belt is made out of is hardcore, but the harness is a softer leather (but still feels really stiff, especially around my neck now that it's new). The hardwear feels great! The chains aren't like industrial grade, but I don't think that's necessary here - Especially for the harness, that's pretty heavy already!

Anyway, check out Studio777's Etsy, Facebook and Instagram! If you have an idea for something, don't hesitate to contact her and see what she can do for you! Her service is great, and she will go a long way to make sure that you are 100% happy by asking a lot of questions and giving a lot of suggestions and options. I just gave her a couple of inspiration photos, and she took those and made me something similar, and didn't copy them! They might look similar to other pieces like this, but if you look close, they're different, which is pretty important to me! As well as the fact that they actually fit. It's so cool that I can wear the belt in two places, cause it's even rare that I can find a belt that is small enough for my hips. So again, thank you so much, Jez! Can't wait to see you again at WGT! :D
