Optimizing Clothes For Lifting

This is one thing I haven’t seen so I’m doing it. I am not a roleplay blog and all of these have been personally tested by me!

1. Oversized Underwire Bra: Slip small things into it. Works best with an underwire because the band will hug your torso no matter the cup size, which prevents your items from falling out.

2. Boots: Only really works in winter/fall for obvious reasons. Slip things like sticks of eyeliner, lipstick, or pencils (hah I love lifting art supplies) in there. Pretend there’s a rock in it or something and bend down with the item concealed in your hand.

3. Baggy Sleeves: Preferably elastic-cuffed, or you can slip a hair tie over the sleeve to keep things from falling out. Pick up the item you want, hold it as if inspecting it, then casually slip it into the sleeve.

4. Cargo Pants: If you didn’t know, these are the pants with pockets all up and down the sides. If they have buttons, have all the buttons undone before you enter the store. Pick the item up, bend down as if to tie your shoe or adjust your pant cuffs, and slip it in on the way up. This method also blocks your movement from any cameras.

5. Snug Underpants: So you can hide flattish items there without them falling out.

6. Snack Bag: I don’t think this is a very well-known method but it’s super effective and if you get caught, SAs won’t think to look in it. Carry a bag of chips/Cheetos/Smartfoods/whatever, preferably empty or half-eaten. In a blindspot, shove the merchandise inside. (Note: some stores may not allow food inside, but most do)

7. Scarf: If it’s warm out, you can opt for a lightweight fashion scarf. Pick up the merchandise you want. Start by fiddling with the scarf a bit, acting like you want to pull it off. Remove the scarf and quickly wrap the merchandise in it. Ball the scarf up and place it on your bag.

That’s all I have right now. If anyone has more add them! Happy lifting :)

Mistletoe.[Tadashi Hamada.]

Tadashi walked towards the institute in a vigorous manner. He felt somewhat uncomfortable, and yet as he drew closer to you he couldn’t help but settle down a bit. The lightweight fashion scarf of dark red that circled his neck began to heat up his body, which was saying something because it was considerably cold. The shirt that encased his chest and the dark green jacket that clung to his form was doing him no justice at keeping his body temperature semi-normal.

It looked so much warmer, he thought to himself as his converse clad feet tapped gently at the frigid ground below. Fiery and dark amber eyes scanned his surroundings several times. He swallowed thickly as his legs bent down. Sitting gently on the bench, he silently thanked whatever god there was that you weren’t there before him. He’d hate it if he made you wait for him, especially in this cold weather. As his breath became more evident in the air, his beautifully shaped eyes captured a few snowflakes falling to the ground. Where is she, he thought to himself and looked around.

It was unlike you to be late to something, especially this. Christmas was in two days, Tadashi thought to himself and both of you were going to the school party, but the tall man wasn’t quite sure where you were. He made sure that you agreed to meet in front of the school, by the bushes… The dim light coming from the building, he supposed, made it hard to spot you. “Tadashi!!” That voice was familiar, and when he looked up, he chuckled slightly, watching you walk quickly towards him. Standing up quickly, he could physically see how cold you looked, and he opened his arms for you.

Basking gratefully in the warmth of the Asian man, you breathed in deeply and said, “Sorry I’m late… I stopped by my house to grab something.” He looked down at you and raised an eyebrow, but before he could even speak, you were holding up a small bunch of what looked like holly. Tadashi tilted his head and glanced up, noting that the berries were in fact white rather than red.

He remembered, from last year, that mistletoe had white berries, and holly had red. Hiro had explained it to him, though he had forgotten until now. “You’re one to always follow the rules, even traditions,” You lifted the mistletoe above your head and smiled, “So kiss me.”

He looked at you and raised both of his eyebrows. You knew how he felt about public displays of affection, and as his lips came down on your gently, you couldn’t help but jolt slightly out of surprise. Tadashi wouldn’t digress about giving you a kiss to the cheek, and much rather, that’s what you were expecting as fellow students, and even some of your teachers, walked by you, some staring and some whispering. You could feel his arms wrap around you slowly as Tadashi smiled and pulled his mouth away from yours. “I was expecting a kiss on the cheek, not the lips…” You murmured gently, “You hate kissing in public places…”

“Well,” He rubbed your hips gently, and swayed his body against yours. “It’s the holidays and you did have mistletoe so who am I to argue with a bundle of berries?” You chuckled lightly when you felt his mouth press a small kiss to your cheek, and his hot breath began to speak into your ear, “Merry Christmas, (Name).”
