I finally put an end to the horrific process of clothes shopping when I managed to get my head around the process of buying them online (there seems to be half a dozen different measuring/size systems).

Except for pyjama pants and occasional t-shirts, I never let people buy me clothes. I'm a borderline nightmare to both fit AND be comfy (I'm a size 10-12, BUT I'm oddly proportioned and with a back like a roller coaster, and there's a multitude of things I hate like tight armscyes, crew necks, too-short sleeves since I have long arms, numerous colours that I both hate and look awful on me, clothes that "twist" on me, beeing too slim through the thigh because mine are far from slender, etc.)

Literally all my long sleeved shirts have too long sleeves. I get accused of "acting cute" when they fall over my hands or I hold them. At work I get a coworker to roll them up for me.

I'm picky too, that's why my mom just asks me what I want.

I like my sleeves to go at LEAST to the heels of my hands, on my end. Right on the wrist is too short for me. Plus, I hate wearing gloves/mitts, so in winter I like to be able to just tuck my hands into my sleeves. But, not the easiest when I have long arms. From armpit to finger tip, they're 24 and a half inches when held straight down.

So guys.

Nobody cares, since I'm not really in a cosplay loop, but I donated 30cm of my hair to make a wig for kids.

That's very sweet. My hair used to be passed my knees, but I cut it to donate as well. Good for you.

Personally I think we're more of a cult who worships Sam and Penny.

Well, apparently Mom's going to buy me a dressform for my birthday. I pretty well need one to fit my Quorra costume and it's getting damn annoying to have to fit things over and over on myself, ESPECIALLY hems, and not having anything but a hanger or myself to display costume pieces on... but I'm now trying to find a not-too-expensive but worth the money one and it's confusing as fuck. Especially because I don't have the perfect hourglass shape that all the forms tend to come with (I'd still have to add adjustments for a swayback/tipped hips, rounded shoulders, and a big/wide hip and butt combo).

Good for you! (And we actually do care, trust me! Keep posting here often and you'll see. ^^)

Shinobi-- Joann's has this one on sale? I'm not sure what your size is, but hope it works! (I have the 'small/medium' size of this and looooove it.)
