I have a complaint, but I am not quite foolish enough to make it anywhere but here. - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

And this is probably foolish enough.


Anyway.


This is Isabela from Dragon Age 2.



This is me, while working on my Lilith costume.





Every time some judgemental person on the forums makes a comment about the 'gross deformities on Isabela's chest' I want to make that very comparison. I know I shouldn't, but I find it personally insulting. Argh. Just argh.

You in that costume = mesmerizing. I am a boob girl, I admit it.

I utterly adore it because the 'girls' behave so well in it. ;D And I may find myself pretty het most of the time, but I do love a good rack, too.


I am not good at judging breast size, but am I so wrong in thinking those are about the same?

Which really does make those comments more hurtful. I wish there was some way to make them see that without opening myself up to some serious harrassment.

That statement doesn't make the naturally skinny girls feel very good. Just sayin'.

The argument is getting old and is quite ridiculous, in my opinion. I'm okay with a bit of arguing on the point that apparently *every* woman in Thedas has a nicely endowed rack, but I also know they're not going to bother making multiple art assests just to vary the boob size if they don't have to. It's not that big of a deal.

And since I hadn't seen a pic of it in a while, I'd forgotten how much I adore you and that costume. :)

It is a ridiculous argument. They don't make anyone fat, either, but do you see many arguments about that? No, of course not. *grumble*

And, thank you. :)

I don't play the game, but honestly that is not the worst offender of Video Game Bewbs. I wouldn't look at that character and go OH MY GOD. But maybe its cause I know you and your boobs :P

I agree, that's not anywhere NEAR a candidate for 'too big/bouyant to be real'. She's well within the realm of physically possible (obviously) which is more than I can say for some of the art I have seen.

I think it's people assuming that she's wearing a shirt, not a supportive corset garment that can perk things up like that. Either way, though, definitely not the worst I've seen.

This is very likely. It means they really aren't paying attention to her armor upgrades, either. LOL I mean, one is even called corselette boning!

I think you should make an icon of your chest and use it to comment saying "What deformities?"

I still say that is the most stunning costume I have seen, and you are amazing in it.

The character depiction is pretty sane-looking to me, and not near as largely endowed as comic book gals. Rand always used to say I was built like one. I also get just as rabidly annoyed as you do, mainly because in my slimmer days, there was always an assumption made that I'd had augmentation done GRRRRRRR.

What I do find a bit out-of-proportion is her face/head to body ratio, but there are also women built like that, I'm sure.

Thank you. :) And, yeah, the assumption that a woman can't possibly have grown these on her own makes me go O.o

Thank you.

I rather wonder at the thought process, too.

You can always point them to pictures of me and really scare the hell out of them.
