Watch it guys. It’s amazing. XD
She looks like a sexy dwarf (like Kili) with the facial hair : )
I didn’t know high-waist jeans were back in fashion. My husband will be happy about that.
Have you ever watched a tv show and wanted something a character has worn? There’s a website called wornontv.net that finds the exact clothes and lists them with where to buy them for a bunch of different shows (just a few examples: teen wolf, pretty little liars, the vampire diaries and even doctor who)!
WHERE HAS THIS POST BEEN ALL MY LIFE
IM SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW
Please keep in mind that I’m not a professional or anything!
I just took some art classes when I was younger, so these are just a few things I remember or have learned since then!
Anyways, this ‘tutorial’ is just something I made very quickly…and I’m not good at explaining or teaching.
So please don’t take this seriously lol
It is time for a fucking revolution.
If the fashion industry thrives on newness and novelty then they are failing themselves.
If you want a ‘new twist on a classic style’ I’ve got one for you.
Make a pencil skirt for someone who is 5ft 3.
Make a white shirt that will button over my breasts.
Make a shift dress that doesn’t get ‘nipped in at the waist’.
Make a pair of shoes that won’t aggravate my ankle injury.
Make a ‘nude-coloured’ dress that is dark brown.
Make your plus-sized jeans in actual denim, not some shitty stretch fabric dyed blue.
You want a fresh take on the classics?
Try making your clothes for someone who isn’t six foot tall and a size 6.
oh and also make fucking steel-toed boots under the size mens 8 1/2
Make some form-fitting shirts that are thick enough to stop our bras from showing through.
Make sensitive skin-friendly buttons and clasps so we don’t have worry about the metal making us break out in contact dermatitis (that’s a localized rash that can easily become an infection, for the uninformed).
Make a long dress that is easy to go to the bathroom in.
Make a pair of jeans that actually fit in the crotch area instead of putting us at risk of a yeast infection (No “V”).
Make more dress shoes that aren’t heels.
Put more pockets in women’s clothes.
CREATE A FUCKING UNIVERSAL SIZING SYSTEM THAT MAKES SENSE.
Amen to all.
why is this so hard to understand
and people call me lazy and trashy for wearing pj and yoga pants 24/7
i just want to be comfortable
Xlizardx sent in this super cool submission. Here’s what she said:
"SAME GIRL, SAME DAY, *FIVE* DIFFERENT SIZES
I made this today to illustrate how inconsistent sizing in women’s clothing really is. Each of these skirts is a different size - and each fits me perfectly. So what size am I really?
Certainly not Oasis, Topshop, H&M, or Warehouse, clearly.”
Same thing happens to me and jeans. Depending on the brand, I’ve gone from a US 7 to a 13 in juniors sizes.
I still don’t understand why women’s clothes haven’t switched to the men’s system and just use inches/mm instead of some arbitrary number system. It would actually make sense!
Here’s the thing about that, and I was thinking about this just the other day. I have a lot of pants and skirts that are sized by waist inches. But a lot of women’s pants sit way below the waist. On me, my actual waist is five inches above the top of my pants. So I bought a bunch of size 28 pants without trying them on, stupidly thinking they would fit me because they were sized in inches, and ended up with a lot of pants I couldn’t fit into.
And then there’s the fact that my waist to hip to butt ratio is drastically different from any other woman’s. Someone with my same size in one dimension might be way bigger or smaller in another. Bodies have so many variables!
THIS IS AN ART PIECE CALLED:
"NUDE: WHOSE FUCKING SKIN COLOR IS THIS, BECAUSE IT SURE AINT MINE”
What’s actually funny is I’m really pale so that nude colored clothing and such is my actual legit skin tone. I’ve worn ripped shirts with a skin tone cami underneath and have had teachers come up to me and tell me to change before I explain it to them.
GOOD FOR YOU BITCH but this isn’t about you..
it’s about the fact that in this lovely white supremacist society we all have to endure, White is assumed to be the default race and anyone that variates from that is just an afterthought, if any thought at all. In the words of Toni Morrison, “In this country American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate.” It speaks to a whole realm of political, social and socio-economical issues that derive from this perspective that permeates White Supremacy thinking. A point you clearly just helped me prove, like here I am trying to make a statement and you wanted to make this all about you, you need to work on your inferencing skills ma. Now here’s a little fun fact to tickle your pickle: Human skin comes in lots of shades.
I know, your mind is blown right?
Rohit Bal’s collection for India Bridal Fashion Week - absolutely stunning, and (in my opinion) way more interesting and personal than current western trends.
These are stunning. I like that they are actually modern developments of Indian dress that don’t look like they’re hung up on being traditional as well.
THL #19 - The Good Nudes and Bad Nudes
Another logistical argument, sorry.

a bit of background on this strip.
when I was younger, my hippie-ish parents were into nudist colonies. from eight years old to my earliest teenage years, my parents would drag me out there every weekend.
I hated it there. there were very few kids my age, and we were all damned if we cooperated with this nude thing. but all the adults were there, hanging out in more ways than one. it seemed bizarre to me, and I was deeply ashamed of going.
regardless, living at such a place would definitely impact me one way or another. being a kid in a nudist colony was a tough go when you’re trying to learn about your sexuality, but perhaps it made me see things in a way that would inevitably lead to me doing a comic like sexy losers.
one of the things that clothes were No Big Deal. outside of the camp, clothes determined everything about you, your clothes were your social identity. but when everyone is naked, there were no more groups and divisions, and everyone was the same.
back in the real world, it always puzzled me why someone’s clothes would be the blame for something. especially rape. at the nudist colony, I saw a lot of naked people just doing living stuff. swimming, sunbathing, playing chess, talking at a bar, dancing, cooking, playing tennis, you name it. I also happened to see a lot of penises too. and never, ever, did I see anyone with a boner. ever.
so if men in the real world couldn’t control themselves if they saw a woman in “slutty” clothing, how come they can control themselves if everyone’s freaking naked? this inconsistency couldn’t be explained unless that idea that clothes “ask for it” was complete and utter bull. men can handle the clothing. they’re just looking for a way to victim blame.
anyways, that’s where this strip came from.
This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…
men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.
THE NOTES ON THIS
because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.”
so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT
