However not a one comes in a size over a smallish size 10 or so.
Now, I quite frankly don't want to pay an extra fifty dollars for about three inches of fabric. I am not a "odd" size (something I saw on a listing on Etsy for an item that the largest it comes is with a size 30" waist. Anything over 30" is apparently "odd") I am a size. And I think it would stand to reason that if you can make an item in every size from 20" waist to a 30" waist 34" wouldn't be that fucking hard?
Now I have seen a lot of DIY and indie designers who've had their fashions ripped off and I get how angry that must make them, however if your market is so slim (literally and figuratively) can you blame someone for knocking it off?
As they say necessity is the mother of all invention and if you as a retailer or aspiring retailer know you're not providing services for someone, do you blame them for doing it for themselves?
Granted I know that I would not be able to knock off everything I like but, that's not going to stop me from trying honestly.
I don't like being sized out of price gauged because of the state of my ass.
That said, I do have a bit of an ew feeling if I know what I might be doing is someone else's bread and butter but, I don't know if my ew feeling overwhelms my want for a product that's not vastly overpriced.
There are some retailers and indie folks I feel I would be comfortable buying from at some point who aren't screwing the fat folks. I appreciate that and when it happens I will do full pic reviews.
However, there's a lot of stuff that is just not available and really makes me wanna step up my sewing skills and get 'er done to quote Larry the Cable guy.
I really just am not sure how I feel about this right now.
Help me out homies?
Is it ew to willfully knock off someone else's design to suit your own needs or should I just put on my big girl panties and man sized ass kicking boots and make it work?
So I'm gonna go deal with the hot mess that is my hair. I did a beautiful pony tail rollerset yesterday but my hair got drizzled on and winded and it is tangled and angry so I must remedy that.
I made a new slideshow video. I still haven't yet figured out how to use the equipment I have to make a live action video but I like this one. Featuring free music from NIN.
And tomorrow watch for another Fabulous on a budget make up entry on the Cheekan. And since my skin has chilled out, some make up pics.
