Nothing says “summer” like a 40 pound patchwork poncho-cape made from some guy’s old stained pants.
Actually, it looks like someone took a shiteous on it!!

Took a shiteous on it? No. Jizzed on it..? Quite possibly
in that, I don’t know if you’ll ever get close enough to get jizzed on.
I can even smell it.
I gave you a thumbs up because I got the joke.
Never mind… you finished it, Rubber Wonder Boy. Perfection.
Can you change the size of the smell?
My blueberry shake brings all the boys to yard
And they’re all, ‘Do you know what happened to my work overalls?’
and damn right its better then yours………
Canadian formal dress.
or the blue goon of Kentucky
For fuck’s sake, hasn’t Grimace gotten enough abuse? Leave Grimace alone! *weepy eyes*
Grimace would be like, “We hang out sometimes…but we’re not dating. We don’t, like, go anywhere together or anything.”
Making this is one thing. Fine. Whatever.
But trying to sell it? And for $300?!?
Where are the pockets with the faded circles from the Skoal cans?
Agreed. I find the price to be the most offensive part of this monstrosity.
Seriously, would the person who made it even pay that much for it? I doubt it.
She priced it that high on purpose because she’s so attached to it.
By ‘attached’ I mean the inside is sticky and she can’t take it off.
or she serged it to herself by mistake. OUCH.
I think she priced it by the pound.
for what it’s worth, she must have spent at least that much buying all those jeans from the thrift store
How many pairs of jeans had to die to create that monstrosity?
I bet no one is crying over those dead, denim birds!
I hate to say it, but probably not that many of hers and hubbo.
Looking at her other pictures, she’s not very big. It’s just a singularly unflattering pauncho.
I don’t think that denim died a natural death. I think it committed suicide.
This is perfect for Violet Beauregard cosplay!
“Mayhem”, as in, when she started this project, she said, “I may hem this, I may not.”
Holes, fraying, and exposed serging for $300? Somebody please pass the vodka.
I don’t think she needs any more vodka.
But vodka neutralizes the hippy odor.
And kills germs. It’s also a nice accelerant. Can we burn it?
Not so much neutralizes, as just helps you not care.
No really, if you spray vodka on clothes that smell like B.O. itneutralizes the smell. Theater places do that all the time during shows when they can’t dry clean the costumes yet.
it neutralizes* even
That did not occur to us, Dude. Thanks for the tip! All that money spent on undrinkable Febreze… hmph.
Sorry, fresh out of vodka. But it’s about 10 past margarita and I have 2 bottles of tequila. I’m willing to spare some for accelerant as long as we drink the rest.
I’m so confused. Not about the poncho/dress/thing, but about the woman wearing it. Her legs don’t seem to match up with her body. Is the thing she’s wearing so bad it’s warping space?
Is ‘Bad Camera Angles’ on Regretsy bingo? It should be.
Point and shoot with a very short focal length taken from pretty close. You can see distortion in the siding too.
This is the same way they make women’s butts look so big when they want them to.
So what you’re saying is, anyone who looks at me and sees a fat ass is wrong, and they really have an astigmatism or something?
Actually, it’s an ass-stigma-ism.
That’s not the way I do it!
Its like looking into a glass of water with a straw in it.
I think there’s somebody else under there.
Must have taken a long time to make, to be fair. Sure looks like a pile of shite, but maybe she can’t see the woods for the trees after looking at old poopiepants for 3 months?
Yeah, yeah, I know, I musta been off the booze for a while, but I actually do appreciate the amount of work that went into this acid washed monstrosity.
I’ve actually seen something similar – it’s a skirt made of denim scraps, but they’re cut differently (the scraps run up and down the length of the skirt), and arranged by color to form sort of a denim rainbow.
Not my style, and still not worth 300 bucks, but far nicer than this.
I did something similar once, but with two crucial differences:
1.I used a piece of plastic cut to the shape I wanted rather than cutting the denim freehand.
2.I did not try to make it into a garment – I chose to make a quilt instead. Now THAT I got $$$ offers on.
This….this was an interesting try.
A handmade twin-sized denim quilt would be worth at least $300. I think more, for labor invested. Quilting is a specialized skill and a good quilt can last a lifetime. A denim garment made from other denim garments, not so much.
For $300, that better be made out of only designer jeans. I better not see some Levi quality denim.
She used mostly Serge-io Valentes.
That’s right… Hang your head in shame.
I think she’s struggling under the weight of a cubic shitload o’ denim.
That description is just a long and flowery way of saying “I can’t sew.”
“exposed serged detail and zigzag stitching…”
AKA “I have no idea how to finish a seam”
“but wanted to try out all those fun-looking settings on the dial”
This would make shoplifting at Walmart a breeze.
It’s the circle of life, ’cause most of those jeans came from there in the first place!
Literally “tons and tons of frayed fringe.” Enough to hold you down in a tornado!
I love how she feels she has to specify “I did this on purpose”.
That’s for legal reasons. The parole board doesn’t like surprises.
Probably couldn’t be arsed to write “in my own creative ability” while under the influence of the REALLY *koff* GOOD SHIT MA*koffkoff*N.
Also, I’m fairly certain that “dragon” is actually a phoenix. Holy cow lady, get your creatures straight!
That would be Holy Cow-Lady? Bleached Indigo Goddess of Farmeralls, Patroness of used boot-cut cowboy jeans, Wrathful Deity of maternity overalls and Merciless Waster of perfectly good thread? …thanks for the new expletive…
I have seen some amazing things made out of old denim. But- Denim Bag with Holes for Arms and Head- totally new one one me. So this might be a completely original creation. I wish her luck in the Project Runway tryouts.
The good news is that on laundry day you just turn it upside down,and, WAAAA-LAAAA! Laundry bag! Tie it shut with the fringe and you’re off to the “laundry matt.”
dammit, I wish I hadn’t said that about turning it over, because now I have a burning need to see this as skants.
Wasn’t there a character on The Muppet Show or Sesame Street that was primarily composed of shredded clothing like jeans and corduroys?
I know this post was forever ago, but I just consulted one of my daughter’s Sesame Street books, and I must correct myself. It is actually spelled “Snuffleupagus”. It is occasionally hyphenated. Just for the record.
“…the volume on this is awesome.” No doubt.
And should be turned down.
I’m picturing a bouncy tuba line being played whenever you wear this.
But can you adjust the size of the smell?
Sadly, no. It’s stuck at 11.
If you were training for a marathon, you could wet it down, and go run in it – to build your endurance.
However, unsure of what they are witnessing, the neighbors will probably call the police.
Or the military. At least the national guard.
I am now envisioning a stern-faced young Marine wearing this thing, and running. In boots and pack.
It’s an almost endearing image.
“There is so much going on here…”
Yep, and none of it is good!!
So the name of the ponchocape is “Harry and the Hippy”? What the fuck is that supposed to mean? Do you title clothing? I’m kind of having a small meltdown trying to get my head around this thing here.
harryandthehippechic is the shop name, if that helps. It didn’t particularly clear anything up for me, rather just raised new questions, but there you are.
I somehow filled it in as “Harry Potter and the Hippie Chic”, and was wondering if Hagrid having a sister was one of those things that never made it from book to movie.
I thought you wrote “ponchoscape”, which I thought was very clever considering the panoramic azure vista…
That’s NOT a kilt with easy access to the love handles?!
“a few small holes left on purpose”
The purpose being ‘too lazy to sew up holes’.
Or to find materials with no holes in them to begin with! Maybe I should take all my kitchen rags and make a quilt? And after the dogs are done chewing on their beds, I can make placemats! On purpose, of course.
Can somebody please make a gif where she lifts up the poncho, and a flock of helephants burst out, all wearing little ponchos? With glitter?
Recycled, upcycled, reconstructed, “FUNKY,” patchwork, tons and tons of frayed —
Stop it already! We get it! This garment is made with the most crap humanly possible! The amount of used denim is equality to legion plus one. Denim scraps by the bushel, denim rags by the pound. There are five Gaps store inventories and half of Williamsburgh’s thrift shops in this ponchademic.
This garment qualifies for a Guinness World Record for Most Fuckery In One Garment that was Assembled from Others.
Good for you. You can have some ice cream. Now don’t do it again.
I adore you, Lemon Bombs. I want to take your verbal cortex home and give it cat toys to play with and a quilted & embroidered Engrish.com motif featherbed to snooze on.
Ot, this must be Harry.
That was cruel and unusual…
That’s kinda cute, but I’m really not sure if it would make a good maternity dress?
Too heavy. Would crush the sprog-to-be.
Looking at their store, Harry and Hippy Chick do have some cute stuff. Stuff that I would actually wear. And their prices are comparable to what you might find at some little boutique (at least where I live). And then you see this poncho/cape/dress thingy that looks like it vomited denim, and you wonder where things went so horribly awry. I’ve actually noticed this on a couple of Regretsy posts: some bugfuck crazy and/or ugly POS in the midst of otherwise cool stuff. Do the sellers think their “I shat ‘creativity’, so now Etsy will put me on the front page?” when making this stuff? (Actually, looking at what’s made it on Etsy’s front page, that would make sense.)
Yeah, I’ll have fun exploring the many details of this poncho. I’m sure picking the nits and innumerable pubes out of the poorly-stitched seams will give me hours of entertainment.
I’m getting the distinct impression that this is Harry’s only source of income, since his unemployment has run out.
Or, they’re just unemployable, especially if this is representative of their wardrobe recommendations. I can’t imagine working or socializing with anyone wearing this, and I work and socialize with many of the least fashionable people still employable – software engineers. (Though “socialize” is a generous term for what it takes to communicate effectively in a non-work environment with Our Kind…)
“Denim Patchwork Poncho Cape”
“Why the Indigenous Mexicans don’t have Casual Fridays.”
“Lovely” I’m still stuck there….
I can’t wait to move out to the country so I can foist scavenged garbage onto Etsy and claim it’s folksy, cute, and worth paying for. I hear there’s a recession going on. If they are charging more for this then what it would cost to buy 10 “normal” clothing items at Goodwill, they’re charging way too much.
And $300 for this is too much. Like, $299.99 too much.
Having seen this…whatever the fuck it is, I feel like they owe ME money.
Technically the recession in the US has been over since 2009, but that’s no excuse for this. This… garment would be a burden on any economy.
I actually have a top that is made up of patches of denim sewn together, the different? Well, it is actually fitted and flattering on my figure and doesn’t have that ugly fringe either. It’s actually pretty cute, my mother’s friend who is a flight attendant got it in Amsterdam for me and I actually like it.
However, that is not.
As long as you didn’t pay $300 for it.
I didn’t, I got it as a gift and my mother’s friend who gave it to me said she got it on clearance and it looks really cute and it is actually fitted correctly as opposed to just being a sack. It is sleeveless too with two-inch straps. I need to take a picture of it because it is one of my favorite tops.
I hope one of her long hairs is stuck to it
This seller is out of their mind.
They’re also selling a bunch of leftover scraps that they sewed together for $18.
Oh no. A fucking “Dread Wrap”? That sucks, Mon.
Considering the fact that her hair had no dreads, I can only assume the title refers to the fact that everyone dreads anything new she lists!
I’m thinking very hard on this issue.
Consideration, I realized a long time.
The world is not enough booze.
I regret that I have no more thumbs to give.
Is it me, or does that look like the groom from the hobo wedding?
I totally thought that too.
Make it full-length, add a hood and mask, and make it entirely from pieces with back/patch pockets. Snuff cans optional. The perfect swimsuit!
You can dress it up, you can dress it down! Slip it on with a jaunty pair of peacock blue Valentino pumps, some stunning jeweled drop earrings and you’re ready for an evening on the town. Heads will turn as you sashay down 5th Avenue in this flirty little number. And then there’s Saturday in the Park with George…oh, make that Harry…a kicky pair of brightly colored patent leather wedge sandals and bold jangling bangles on your dainty wrists will be the perfect compliment to this fun and frivolous frock…truly,a knockout for any occasion!
I saw something like this that looked very good….. on the floor of a log cabin.
My parents used to repurpose (before that was a word) Dad’s and Gran’s old jeans and overalls into winter bedding in my dog’s doghouse (God forbid they’d let him INSIDE…they did once, when it snowed…we have TWO dogs inside 24/7 at my house!!).
Anyway, this is kind of what Sandy’s “bed” would look like after a long winter.
I vote that from now on, no one is allowed to call something “funky” that George Clinton wouldn’t wear.
I love funky stuff. I love denim, and have 25 years’ worth of 10×10 squares saved for…something, someday. I love fringe. I still wear skirts that have to be dried tied to a dowel (because I don’t own a broom).
I still wouldn’t touch this piece of crap without a clean-suit.
You say that as though it’s unusual. Most of my skirts have to be dried tied to a broom. Did they come up with something better when I wasn’t looking?
oh crap. Looking at your screen name there, I realize what the problem is. Maybe I should look more often than every 20 or 30 years or so.
This getting old stuff sucks.
Beats the alternative.
Becoming a vampire?
Precisely. I quit sparkling twenty years ago.
This dress is an insult to hippies. The seller is confusing hippies with hobos. Hippies wear jeans and tie-dye t-shirts. Hobos wear patchwork jeans that look like they were found in the garbage (because they were).
Levi Strauss just stretched, said “Oy vey!” and proceeded to turn a perfect cartwheel in his grave.
Here’s a thought, just a thought:
at least we do not have to see her hairy armpits.
Harry and his Hippie Chic are crying all the way to the bank…308 sales! Perhaps this was an experiment to see how far their loyal public would go…2:40am, 14th bong hit, Hippie Chic tries on her latest creation then she and Harry convulse in laughter until the following Tuesday. Sort of like Diesel clothing…they actually call their customers stupid as they watch the money pour in…
I wouldn’t wear the poncho, but I am absolutely in love with her hair. I’m a huge fan of curly hair, and hers is in such beautiful spirals!
This looks like an old picnic blanket of ours! Though I doubt this dress will every be anywhere near sanitary enough to eat off of.
Oh hey, I think I own the jeans on the left tit! They’re actually really cute when they’re not a denim corpse-suit.
so anyone else notice the skidmark on the front?
I was more distracted by what appears to be a cum stain on panel A5
MY SERGIO VALENTES!
I can actually hear the “Project Runway” music playing. Work it, gurrrrrl!
