Srsly though, GSRM is a genius alternative to the ever-expanding acronym LGBTQAI+++
Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities.
Ta-dah! However you like to identify, you’re covered! Asexuals, intersex and trans individuals, graysexuals, homos, lezbos, questioning-mos, homoromantics, fluid, pan, kinksters….
It’s so inclusive and doesn’t feel like labeling and excluding people : )
Use it. Live it.
"Sayaka didn’t JUST want to heal Kyousuke’s arm, she wanted him to LOVE her for it. Homura didn’t JUST want to redo time, she wanted to SAVE Madoka. Mami didn’t JUST want to be saved, she wanted to have FRIENDS and a FAMILY. Kyoko didn’t JUST want her dad to have his followers back, she wanted her family to be HAPPY.
You see, because they weren’t clear or honest about their wishes, they didn’t get what they truly wanted, and in the end, that is what caused their misery”
So, I’m planning to try to put together a ruffle shrug and tie-on bustle skirt to wear to Dickens, in the interest of enhancing my experience as a Consumptive Victorian London Prostitute (tm). Also because I am a masochist and having a ton of homework and a sea-witch costume hanging over my head just isn’t enough is it?
However, I am having a fabric dilemma. My options and the pros and cons:
Black and white striped costume satin
- I love this fabric
- It’ll look a little like stuff I want already, namely Lovechild Boudoir's designs.
- Black and white goes well with blue hair
- I have other projects I was half saving it for
- It only looks good on one side, so I can’t just finish the edges and be done…it’ll take either more work or more fabric, and will need lace for the edges ($)
- doesn’t hold its own shape and likely won’t look very good with tulle layers…mostly like a shitty prom dress with a built in crinoline, methinks
Black and red "monster melt" fabric
- bought this fabric on a whim and haven’t been sure what to use it for, so no guilt
- also doesn’t hold its own shape (even less so, infact) but it’ll look pretty great with black tulle layers inbetween, probably
- adds to the tattered and consumptive look (“ew, did you bleed on yourself?”)
- don’t need to finish the edges or worry about the backside showing, because it already looks destroyed.
- Red and blue still don’t go very well together, even if it’s clear you’re not trying to be patriotic (I like them together, because I like blue haired naughty nurses and some of my favorite clothes are black with bright red stripes/hearts/what have you, but still…I know it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing combo.)
- If I run out, I’m screwed…I bought the last of it and I don’t have time to find another place to order from.
- don’t know if it’ll hold a shape at all, even with the tulle and it’ll be hard to sew
