Happy Monday everyone! Today’s post is all about PINS! Let’s face it…
Who doesn’t love pins? They are a great little extra accessory that can make any outfit extra special. And lately, we can find any kind of pin imaginable on this galaxy.
If you want to start decorating a jacket with pins, here are some tips and tricks to get you started. I’m also letting you guys in on some pins shops I love:
Jean jackets are my go to for displaying my patches and pins.
In my opinion, pins will stay put a lot better with denim fabric. Plus, you can add cute patches and mix and match your pins.
Here are some close ups of the latest Star Wars pins I’ve bought and how I’ve chosen to decorate my Jacket:
The Jedi pins we see here were last years Star Wars Celebration exclusive.
The other two are from one of my favorite shops called Geek Girl Gang.They’re the only non Star Wars related pins in my jacket!
The Geek Girl Gang (which is one of my favorites) & I Rebel are also from Geek Girl Gang.
Vader is from Disney and the Leia was an exclusive pin to raise funds for Carrie Fisher’s campaign after she passed.
Here we have another Star Wars Celebration exclusive: A mix of Rebels characters.
The Ahsoka pin was from Black Series Rebels
Ahsoka’s green piece was a gift from a friend who attended the Her Universe fashion show.
Luke vs Vader & the Porgs are Disney pins.
And Sabine is from the Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty.
- The Vader here is also from Black Series Rebels
And the Geek Babe is from Geek Girl Gang
Last but not least, if you are like me and love wearing these jackets with pins to Cons or other events you will notice that some of them will fall easily. I used to be afraid of my pins falling off, but not anymore. My friend sent me this link and it has been a life saver! These are Pin Keepers and they have a locking system. I tried them and I must say they work much better than the rubber ones.
I hope this also helps you!
Let me know if you have any other pin hacks! We can never have enough!
