can be used as hair accessory, for a wristband, ...
So, I saw this waistbelt on Ebay:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/Gothic-Taillengurtel-Kamee-Rippen-Skelett-Korsett-viktorianisch-S-M-L-/320900139150?pt=DE_Damenunterw%C3%A4sche&hash=item4ab723888e

And first I didn't really get that it was a belt, I thought it was a wristband and I thought it was pretty cool. A friend asked me wether to do it myself, how much afford that might take and stuff.
I spontaneously decided to just try it :D In wristband-size, of course. ;)
