Yvan Rodic captures Pelayo's latest DIY project. The Central Saint Martin student says he'll make a safety pin shirt for you if you are interested.

I know many of you will say that this trend was introduced years ago, but I want to make something especially my own. Here are several images I am hoping I'll cull inspiration from.
Moschino's Uomo shirt. Though gold pins would have been better than gold foil or paint.
Safety pin dresses by Gareth Pugh for his Fall 2008 collection.
A safety pin bow tie brooch by Augustine Wong.
A winged shirt from Instructable.
I am thinking of doing this for actual bow ties and not just brooches. White with silver pins?
What's good with the Instructable site is that it offers detailed DIY steps. This shows how important it is to sew down your pins into place.
A cameo necklace from Realm Jewelry. I love the configuration of the pins. I'm sure there's a way to tone this down or make it look more like hardware for a cameo-less male version.
Time to buy hundreds! In gold, silver, bronze, and in all sizes!
More necklaces from Realm Jewelry.
Surely, safety pin shirts or jackets require painstaking dedication and careful planning.
Time to begin!
Katy, a blogger and college writing student, has created her own version of the Vena cava safety pin. With medium-sized pins instead of the giant ones, I dare say they look better. Even the people from Vena Cava agree.
Now I'm thinking I definitely need a dummy. Do they make one for the male build?
I am also more convinced that a removable top is infinetely better than pinning them permanently on a shirt.
I am thinking that a male version of this would be a vest. Thanks again Katy for the comment and the inspiration!
