Have you ever dreamed of becoming a Vault Hunter?
(If you answered anything other than yes, this post is not for you.)
But if you DID answer yes, then I have some good news, as we are officially one step closer to making that dream a reality.
Although these jeans aren’t exactly new to the scene, they remain to be one of the most visually stunning creations I have seen to date. Something that I was made aware of last year, these jeans once again popped into my Pinterest universe last week. And earlier today they appeared on one of my favorite procrastination sites, This is Why I’m Broke(.com).
Etsy seller DejaNeufHueres was the original creator of the jeans – designed to look like they’re pulled straight from the Borderlands Universe, and hand-made in France, they are sold in extremely limited quantities – at the moment, it looks like just two are available.
Borderlands is the open-world first-person shooter published by 2K and developed by Gearbox.
‘Hand-painted with lots of love’ -these jeans are guaranteed to make you feel like you’re straight out of a video game. The pants are made with : Polyester 27%; Elastane 3%; Cotton 70% and painted with fabric paint.
But if you want to get in on the action, these masterful creations will set you back over 100 bucks a piece! If I had a spare 100, I’d definitely grab a pair – although I think it might be more fun to try and make a pair myself.
Lucky for us that the internet allows for ample opportunity to find ‘knock off’ or ‘copycat’ items! There are plenty of places offering similar items at a more affordable price, the pants below don’t break the bank, at only £30 from another Etsy competitor. And while they are impressive, I personally don’t think they’re quite on the same level as the original pair!
Let me know what you guys think, are they worth the money? Which pair do you prefer?
