K-Pop LED Concert Sign Tutorial

There are SO many kpop concerts coming up in the USA, and we all know this is our ONE CHANCE, our ONE OPPORTUNITY, to make our wo/man notice us. We must CAPTURE this moment, we can’t LET IT SLIP his palms are sweaty knees week arms spaghetti

I can tell you from experience that these things are NOTICEABLE and your bias WILL look at you (shoutout to jongin u da best boo). There are a few youtube tutorials on how to make a nice LED sign for concerts, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents here on tumblr. With SHINee World V coming up here in Dallas (and with me landing FRONT ROW TICKETS WHAT) I knew I had to find a way to make my ultimate bias #2 look my way. Taemin, I’m comin for you. I documented my step-by-step process on how I made this lovely sign, and I hope this helps everyone else out there make a sign for your bias as well!

(If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask me! I’m here to help!)

Here’s how!

This is a Catrina, not “a sugar skull” the meaning of La Catrina is way more deep than you think. it’s a satirical representation of a culture, not a costume for halloween. 

“La Calavera Catrina (‘Dapper Skeleton’, 'Elegant Skull’) is a 1910–1913 zinc etching by famous Mexican printmaker, cartoon illustrator and lithographer José Guadalupe Posada. The image depicts a female skeleton dressed only in a hat befitting the upper class outfit of a European of her time. Her chapeau en attende is related to French and European styles of the early 20th century. She is offered as a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolutionary era. She in particular has become an icon of the Mexican Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.”-Wikipedia

The reason of the skelleton is because my people were starving.

They were almost dead but they were trying to look like the upper class because of the discrimination.

i ’m not saying that you ’ Should not dress like La Catrina , i ’m just trying to say: Please, do not  dress like a whore while you are trying to look like a Catrina , stop calling it “ Sugar Skull”, do some research before, respect other’s traditions . You do not get the black mood of mexicans , you do not get our satirical festivities . Respect us and as we say in Mexico, “No la chinguen”

It’s beginning to look like what it’s supposed to be.

I was panicking a little bit when cutting out the back pieces because it was sooo much fabric. But just as J.P. Ryan says the pleats are much easier to do than they look!

Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of the pleating process because once I started I didn’t stop until I was done (and it didn’t take long at all!)

The pleats aren’t perfectly even and there’s some bulkiness due to the nature of the fabric (mentioned in the previous post) but considering this was my first attempt I am pretty pleased with my work.
