I am feeling better about the costume, now that I have put on the… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure
I am feeling better about the costume, now that I have put on the petticoat and skirt, with a corset of the intended pattern over top. It may not be awesome, but it WILL be good.
I picked up a boxed set of The Chronicles of Narnia on CD and am listening to it while I drive. I think it was a good investment and I am enjoying it. (And it cost almost the same as a boxed set of the paperbacks. Mind boggling.) And I am trying very hard not to let me biases get in the way every time I hear "Focus on the Family" since they ARE the one's that produced it. I do wonder, however, just how true to the books they are.
Snark moment: perhaps I am missing an intentional fashion statement. See, I recently saw a picture from a Ren Fest where a women seems to have gone out of her way to fluff her breasts so far out of her bodice they spill over (and I do believe she had to fluff most all her breast out to do it. It looked kind of painful). I... I really thought we were supposed to be avoiding that....

One of the ladies
in the court when I first started working shops (I never saw the parade when I was in the SCA dell working archery) was a Very Large, Very Tall, Very Well Endowed woman. Her corset allowed two pools of flesh quivering and threatening to overspill during the parade. It was even more breathtaking when they decided to put a little skip in... to me it looked like emanent overflow (KaCSFFS women had a couple of 'overflows' once at a Beaux and Eros party that we were all trying on the 'glass slipper' bustier. Two of us, including me ALMOST had it fit, then 'bloop' out we'd go over the top).
When I worked for Lucy a friend of mine, who was not too large but liked to make her assets as fluffy as she could, came leaping into the booth to let me know she was engaged as of that day. When her feet landed on the deck, both her hooties popped right out of the corset and only one went back, the other one's nipple wanted to watch what was going on. Fortunately we didn't have any patrons and I did a 'pull up your bodice" movement, she turned bright scarlet and ran behind our counter to re-fluff.
from what I saw tonight, the skirt looked pretty good. wearing the skirt with the petticoat is sure to look better than just holding it in front of you. The whole outfit should look pretty good and I am waiting to see how great the costume and you look this weekend at ConQuesT. Could I get some photos this weekend? See you at ConQuesT
Pari listens to the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe as read by Micheal York. If Focus on the Family had produced that version, I'd just giggle and think of the scene in Cabaret where he confessed that he was sleeping with the Baron.
I agree. It's like I tell people who are concerned that I'm going to fall out at faire...it's like an iceberg...you are only seeing the top 25%! This year, between bruising myself through a stupid moment of lunacy and playing off another girl in the brothel who is used to being the largest, I've actually kept myself laced even further in than usual, actually minimizing the size of "the girls", and I'm still having a blast.
If all you have to offer as a wench is your breasts for ogling, then you aren't a very good wench, you know?
BTW, I actually saw one of the OKRF girls (a young gypsy, I think) who walked by the musician's jam in her group right after opening and she was fluffed so far out of her bodice (ittybittytitties that she had) that her right nipple was exposed. I hope someone told her about it; I don't know her and couldn't leave the jam.
Yipes! I'll keep an eye out for that this weekend. (Oh, what an awful job!) Nipple Patrol!
I can't think of anyone better able to deal with it!
I have the odd desire to make myself a sash that says "Nipple Patrol" and get a whole bunch of smiley face stickers and run around covering up any nipples I see popping out.
