How to make your own dress form

HOLY SHIT, ATTENTION ALL COSPLAYERS.c

Don’t forget that the shirt you are using will get stuck inside it, so use a shirt you don’t want anymore. Also, do this while wearing your most confortable/used bra/bra you will be wearing when you actually wear your cosplay

I also recommend getting some spray foam (commonly found at Home Depot) and putting some of that inside it as well. Stuffing alone will deflate after a few days and your dress form will crumple, especially at the waist.

But otherwise, this is an awesome way to make yourself an accurate dress form and save yourself a ton of money!

Im just going to reblog this for all my cosplaying friends because this is super cool!

mmhmmm.  Good for patterning armor, especially.

Keep in mind that if you plan on pinning things to it, the duct tape will make your pins sticky, and you can’t pin if you use the foam. And no matter what you fill it with it’s a good idea to make a circle in cardboard of your waist that’s close to your actual dimensions, or when you fill your dress form it might not be the right shape around (too round, not oblong maybe).

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
