Publicity Shoot = Epic Goodness

So while doing a photoshoot for a local pop singer, I had the best DIY moment ever and I thought I would share it with you.

This particular young lady had gone through a lot of trouble to make a silver sequined bra for this photo shoot.  Unbeknownst to her, if you use fabric glue on the stretchy part of a bra it is no longer stretchy.  So what she ended up with was a very shiny, very hot…shell.

Never fear, DIY Dan to the rescue.  So while everyone at the shoot was looking for bobby pins and tape, In true man fashion I was looking for duct tape and WD40.  You know that will fix anything. To continue, looking through my lighting bag I discovered a bunch of ball end bungee cords.  That’s right, bungee cords! So off I go to strap the unsuspecting pop diva into her wardrobe.

I tied one cord around one side of the bra, another cord around the other, hooked ’em in the middle, and voila we have a new shiny bra that fits perfectly.  I hope to be posting some pictures of this contraption very soon.

Until then…keep thinking outside the box.
