    Here's another new series set of TVvoodoo Custom Strap Attacks! I plan to continue this series, as I have a bunch more planned due to materials found, but here goes with the first grouping.

    I present to you... Da Wild Thingz!

    leather/vinyl side

    T'other side:

    First off, we have "WTF?!"

    265e8ebd125a7718644c8e05c8a95a77.jpg

    Remember Caramel Brownie, and Davy Crockett? I didn't want to waste any of that beautiful vintage 70's leather so I turned the pockets into a shoulder pad skinny strap just for a fun experiment. The strap part is made from a matching pair of ladies belts made up of what looks like vinyl, rope, and some other material all braided together, it's about an inch and a half wide and very strong. As luck would have it, I found two matching at the thrift shop, so they hook into each other at the brass buckle, and I made nice strong tabs at the ends. The reverse side is a well padded interior, covered with leopard patterned fleece. It's wide. Like about 4" wide at the shoulder. I don't know how to price this experimental thing, make me an offer, you may be surprised!

    Next up... "Bear With Me"

    f85cbc224dfc241adfdf426a29092ba7.jpg

    I should have called this one "Strap of My Eternal Damnation."
    It has rich thick black pile on one side, like the fur of that ol' grizzly bar Davy killed when he was only three, maroon/red vinyl on the other. This is probably the thickest, most plush strap I have ever offered. That probably is why I was forced to take the Lord's, his Fathers', Mothers', stepfathers', and various disciples' names in vain both out loud, and under my breath a WHOLE LOT OF TIMES while I was making it - hence the eternal damnation that probably awaits. Whoever gets this one, I would appreciate a short prayer for my salvation. Due to the difficulties in sewing "Bear With Me" the stitching is a little on the "not pretty" side, on the vinyl side, none of those problems show up on the bear side, though. Strong, thickly padded, totally reversible. B-stock, I think... $20

    Next up... "Jungle Tail"

    46818ffa5c660fdd6beea0113ffc521f.jpg

    Very nice saddle coloured vinyl, with a faux hair-on leopard slash cut inside the face of the strap. Looks pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. The other side is plush, soft, leopard patterned fleece, doubled up for extra strength. Stitching on this one is great, looks pretty pro. The end strap is heavily reinforced leopard fleece (hidden inside reinforcement) with a leather tab sewn where the pin goes. Padded, adjustable, reversible. Show the world what a dangerous cat you are for $25.

    Lastly, no ways leastly, I offer you "Python Monte"

    9c003a13e00a1e4a9b570fd0d3979310.jpg

    This strap was going to be the first in my "Brootz" series, but I changed my mind. I'm going to unveil that line later on, so I made it fit into the "Wild Thingz" theme. "Python Monte" is rich black leather on one side, python patterned denim on the other. The denim is really cool, you will seem more of it in the brootz series - it's got a silvery gray shine to it, with a snake scale pattern in darker greys and black. If you look real close you'll maybe even spy the slightest subtle touch of purple. Brings to mind some of those black flames we've seen with a slight purply tinge. Definitely came from the pants of some VERY hot rock chick. The leather is just that, nice thick black buttery garment leather but I gave it a subtle blocky texture experiment on the front with padding I laid underneath the front shoulder part. It's a badass strap for sure. Padded, adjustable, reversible - Major snakey bad attitude included, free of charge. 'Cause it's leather - $32.

    So there you go, the first four in the "Wild Thingz" series. Hope you see something you like here - just let me know. I'm also very willing to deal if you happen to see two or more you like, in this series or others, mix and match, whatever... try me out :thumbup:

    "WTF?!" - SOLD
    "Bear With Me" - available
    "Jungle Tail" - available
    "Python Monte" - Sold to a finely inked gentleman

    Python Monte looks pretty damn good.

    You must have one hell of a sewing machine to get through that leather.

    I think I'm going to take something and lengthen my shark tooth lightening b-stock.
    I love your straps. I just don't need any more. =P

    I need to know how long, and wide the existing adjust strap is , then just send you a new one. No charge, particularly if you purchase another. :wiggle:

    Could this possibly happen for La Grange as well? Not sure if you have any material left. I could send you the end to alter, if that might help. I still need to get you these Grolsch washers, so I could kill 2 birds...

    Another nice batch tv. I knew Python Monte wouldn't last. Either your photography is getting better, or your skills, or both, but those pictures look great. You better be careful. You might end up employing people.

    La grange... is that a burgundy, red vinyl on the strap? I forget. I have more of that for sure.

    Yeah, the first batch of straps I acknowledge are about 4" too short for the larger dudes - made for myself really, and I'm 6' even, but don't wear mine real low, more like a buckle picker, if you get my drift. Since then, I note, they are all about 3-4" longer, because of the plywood template I made. Always open to keeping customers happy. :thumbup: might as well buy a strap, gonna cost you $8.50 in shipping anyway, no charge for the longer strap.
