I dyed my hairy pits purple when I was 18. It was just for a laugh, but I'd do it again...if only I weren't so lazy about it! Sometimes I shave 'em and sometimes I don't; if it's summer I do. Winter...well, I don't care in the winter. :p

My hair is pink / purple / black, and this is how I'm keeping mine awesome :)
I bleached my hair out almost platinum blonde, then used N'Rage demi-permanent hair colour (you can get it here: http://www.sallybeauty.com/n-rage/SBS-240686,es,pd.html) in Bubblegum Pink and Plum Purple.
The purple is aces good; it's not faded at ALL and I've had it in for over a month. It does tend to tint the pink, and I will say the pink kind of sucks, but I refreshed it with Kool-Aid, believe it or not.
(I used 2 packets Strawberry Lemonade and half a packet of Cherry unsweetened Kool Aid to make my refresher :D)
N'Rage is a damn good brand as far as bright and long lasting colours go. And you don't have to give up washing your hair (too much - I'd say 1 - 2x/wk with regular shampoo or daily with dry shampoo. LUSH makes an awesome dry shampoo that smells like citrus)
A bandeau is probably one of the easiest things to make: you could most likely use a cheap bandeau bra (such as from tellos) as a pattern. Measure yourself just above the bust and just below, allow for seams (about 3/4") and measure your chest across your boobs (armpit to armpit) and the same across the back. Be sure you remember to subtract the underboob number from the overboob number; this will give you the width of the bandeau so that it fits you correctly.
Hope this helps!
Brand new to the site, but I've been making stuff since I was little. I dabble in pretty much everything from oil painting to sculpting to knitting to diy fashion (not to mention music and dance...)
Can't wait to share some of my stuff with you!
