The Skirt

This skirt is as old as the Despair Faction itself, and started as a way to make use of the armband that came with the first DF merch pack (17-year-old Kat thought armbands were fascist). It includes official patches, bootleg patches, handmade patches, handmade stencils, cannibalized t-shirts, and the signatures of all current band members (also Fritch and Smith). I have worn it to more than a dozen AFI shows, and it was featured in one of the tour diary videos from the Decemberunderground era (the Nashville show from the Love Like Winter tour, I think). I’m starting to run out of room, but managed to cram a Bodies patch on there to make sure it’s up to date.
