DIY Phone Deco!

So a project I've wanted to do for awhile was Deco out my cellphone! I decided to buy a prepackaged Dekoden kit from Tokyo Rebel instead of random assortments of jewels and other decorations. This seems best for a first time big project!
Instead of putting the pieces right on my phone I decided to decorate a phone case so that I could switch if I wanted to. This was also to protect the phone!
The kit had all the little pieces in a bag so I just took them out and moved
pieces around trying to figure out some kind of pattern. After getting a general idea I glued down the outside border of gems and then the big pieces. I filled in around them randomly trying to not run out. I almost did it was close! The other tricky part was I kept using too much glue making my pieces slide!
It was kind of a scary process but I had fun and now have a general idea of what to do!

Here's the finished project:

I can't wait to Deco out more things!!

Akira x SEXPOT!

Model Akira gives a tour of the two SEXPOT stores in Harajuku, SEXPOT ReVeNGe and SEXPOT TOKYO for overseas fans!

Akira is an idol of mine as a KERA reader model the past 2 years as well as being SEXPOT's current 'poster' model. Off the pages she continues to have great style and is inspiring and is just plain cool! Even in this video the styling was done on her own.

Video filmed and subbed by the Tokyo Rebel Team! =)
