tailored goods

I’ve seen all these lovely headcanons about the people who produce costumes for superheroes and supervillains, but I’m always thinking: what about minions?

I mean, most villains have a theme, and custom tailoring is well and good for the boss, but what about the flunkies? When Captain Killblood needs a dozen pirate outfits for her “crew” on short notice, it’s probably not in the budget for all of them to be bespoke - and since nobody’s catching supervillains by tracing their credit card receipts, clearly she’s not sourcing them via regular channels.

I can’t help but picture our hypothetical supervillain walking out of the magic tailor shop and promptly heading down the block to Uncle Zargon’s Costume Emporium - all sizes and major body plans in stock, discretion guaranteed.

Star Wars is particularly good at tailoring its villains to what people of the time fear most: in the late 70’s/early 80’s, it was faceless, militaristic dictators, in the late 90’s/early 00’s it was shady politicians who seize power questionably and then immediately start wars with murky ulterior motives, and in the 10’s, it’s twentysomething white men with no self-control.

Can I have a full list of the members of felt? Their names, what pool ball they represent and their abilities? Thank you!

Itchy-One Ball: Ability to slow time down in reference to others (aka super fast)

Doze-Two Ball: Ability to slow time down in reference to himself (aka super slow)

Trace- Three Ball: Ability to see where people have been and can interact with them in the past

Clover-Four Ball: Super Lucky

Fin-Five Ball: Ability to see where people will go and can interact with them in the future 

Die-Six Ball: Has pins for each member of the felt and midnight crew, when he inserts one into his doll he is taken to a timeline where the corresponding character is dead 

Crowbar-Seven Ball: Is incredibly smart, the de facto leader after Scratch, has the Juju Breaker 

Snowman-Eight Ball: Her life is tied to that of the A universe 

Stitch-Nine Ball: Is a damn good tailor 

Sawbuck-Ten Ball: Whenever he is hit he and his assailant are jumped to a random point in time

Matchsticks- Eleven Ball: Can travel through time using fire as a gateway 

Eggs-Twelve Ball: Has an egg timer that allows him to travel up to sixty minutes into the past 

Biscuits-Thirteen Ball: Has an oven that allows him to travel to the future at a rate of one second per second

Quarters-Fourteen Ball: Possesses a collection of quarters bearing the images of pool balls. If a coin is tossed, the Felt member corresponding with the side that faces up will be summoned from some place in space and time. If the member on the other side is present, the two will switch places and times. If a member tosses their own coin and gets his own number, they will die  

Cans-Fifteen Ball: Can punch people through time

Doc Scratch-Cue Ball: Omniscient, semi-Omnipotent, and a Great Host

Lord English-Pool Cue: Omnipotent, Invulnerable, and Already Here

Okay I’m so sorry for two pictures of my absurd face in a short space of time BUT MY BINDER FROM @shapeshiftersinc CAME AND IT’S AMAZING

I went with the Basilisk scales and let me tell you I’m REAL happy with this choice bc they’re black but also rainbow and it’s the coolest thing ever

So, as promised, have some Wonder Woman!Boneset. I wasn’t sure what to draw exactly so I just redrew some of the promotional photos of the movie. 

Feel free to come up with a reason that there’s a man on Themyscira during WWI because I don’t have one.

My favourite picture of me.

The story behind this one is I’ve always had a thing for dramatic eveningwear. I find there is so much more room for self expression in girl mode doing formalwear- wearing a suit as a man is so boring. I feel so empowered like this.

I always wanted a killer dress- I got this one last year, saved up for a bit too. (The style is Jovani 32515 if anyone wants to look it up!) I love the deep blue colour and the completely impractical train.

Also top tip- find a good tailor near you. I had this one altered so it fits really nicely!

In all seriousness this was a ton of fun for me to write especially considering that out of all the Chocobros, Prompto’s the one I’d be more likely to call a muse. He has so much potential… So here’s some Prompto sex headcanons?? I take requests, so if you like what you see drop me a line!

More under the cut.

Tailored Dress  ♥  Old ASOS top  ♥  Vintage crossbody bag  ♥  Bonjour Store leather sandals  ♥  Salvaged pin 

It’s been a month since I’ve posted an outfit, would you believe that! Spring has turned to summer in that time, and only the mornings are pleasant now. For summer ‘17, my primary style goal is to make the shift towards ethical, mindful, slow fashion. Coming from the scarcity mindset that the lack of options in plus sizes inevitably steers you towards, I always felt that ethical fashion sounded wonderful in theory but would be impossible to implement. And yes, I’d probably want to make the occasional purchase on ASOS (for example) but for the foreseeable future, I’m taking advantage of India’s dressmaking culture and getting everything I can tailored. 

I went back to tailoring last winter after months of encouragement from Ushshi, for which I’ll be forever grateful because tailoring has fundamentally altered the baseline of how much I can do with clothing. I admit my motivations are rooted in selfishness - more than anything I’m dreaming of finally designing my dream wardrobe - at the same, given my current lifestyle, mindfulness feels natural to who I am. When I’m not working on blog-related stuff, I spend most of my time cooking, gardening, reading, and making things. It would be strange to not at least try to be mindful about the clothes I wear, considering how important they are to me.

Here’s what I’m planning to do this summer (and afterwards!) when it comes to my wardrobe

  • Shop locally and support local artisans.
  • Support independent makers with my wallet instead of big brands.
  • Recycle clothing in my wardrobe, which is to say wear stuff I’ve hardly ever worn instead of buying more. I’m especially guilty of this one because I tend to stick to just 5 or 6 pieces at any given time and then keep on replacing them with new ones.
  • Shop sustainably whenever possible, like vintage or second hand pieces instead of new. This is actually something I’ve been doing since I first started shopping online (I think about…15 years ago?) Some of my all time favourite pieces are second hand scores off eBay like my Brit Stitch satchel and Anthropologie jacket. Buying second hand clothing might not sound as glamorous as buying, say…organic, fairtrade clothing, but it’s a cheap, easy and useful thing you can do towards building a sustainable wardrobe. Whenever I buy second hand or vintage clothing online, it’s almost always from eBay (or Etsy) UK so I can get it delivered to my fiance and he can bring everything over in one go when he comes over. I would feel pretty awful flying over clothes one at a time halfway around the world even if I could afford to.
  • Invest more in quality pieces I can wear over and over again, now that I have a core wardrobe to see me through.

There’s also the fact that I can afford to do this now. There haven’t been a lot of times in the past 5 years that I could. Not to mention the question of access to a good tailor and the time needed to go fabric shopping and basically getting whatever I want to wear designed from scratch. Sometimes it takes a fitting session after the clothes are made to ensure that they sit well on my body. It’s time consuming and more expensive than buying the cheapest stuff on sale online and taking advantage of free shipping. It’s only recently that I’ve been able to afford both the budget and the leisure to do so.

The outfit

I’m so obsessed with smock dresses I rarely wear any other kind these days! This is one of the two midi smocks I’ve gotten tailored recently. Ikat is such a springy and fresh look, and a pattern I’ve always loved. If you’re looking for similar styles in natural fabrics, there might not be a lot of options in retail but Etsy is one place where you’ll find dresses in a similar aesthetic. Sondeflor Shop and OffOn Clothing, both on Etsy, have many bohemian smock styles in custom sizes.

My shoes are also from Etsy, and I’ve gotten quite a few questions about them on Instagram! They’re from a shop called Bonjour Store, who are actually based in Jaipur. Having worn similar pairs in my childhood, I was expecting them to be the hard leather kind that you need to break in. I was pleasantly surprised when these sandals turned out to be really, really soft with padded insoles. I love how they look like clogs but feel so different on my feet. I also got a pair of strappy sandals from Bonjour Store that I’ll planning to style next, and I’m thinking of stocking up on some more styles from them over the summer!

My top is from ASOS, way back in 2011. I’ve styled it more than once on the blog and worn it many more times than that, so it exceeded #30wears a long time ago. The vintage purse has been on everyday rotation in my wardrobe since I got it. The pear pin that isn’t quite visible in photos is still a pretty little addition IRL and is salvaged from a dress I bought in 2007. I’ve linked to similar products on the widget below so you can re-create this look for yourself if you like!
