Things that make you want eye bleach....
« on: July 27, 2010, 11:30:24 AM »
With the Colorado festival on its last weekend I have been seeing a very alarming rate of people who seem to think that Renaissance Festival translates into Skankaissance Festival....

For example there was a woman in a chain mail bra without any coverup under it and to top the look off a loin cloth with again nothing under it :o This is the one that takes the cake in what I have seen.

SOOO who has some eye bleach needing, jaw dropping " Oh no you didnt" spottings at faire?

Haven't seen, don't wish to.   :-X

My thoughts are, if it's legal to wear it on the street, they can wear it at faire. Unfortunately, what you are describing sounds like it would not have been legal on the street, as the naughty bits really weren't covered. Management should have escorted the lady out, or insisted she at least put something on under it that would cover the naughty bits.

The worst one for me is the guy at MNRF that wears short-short pumpkin pants with no hose.  I couldn't tell you anything else about his garb 'cause once I catch a glimpse of those skinny legs I just have to look and/or walk in the other direction!

Since Scarby is late Spring in TEXAS everyone tries to find ways to wear lightweight, breathable fabrics and otherwise comfy garb. For some, like myself, the belly dancer look has been the main way to deal with heat. But I think some people are unaware of their own bodies and have no idea how to do an appropriate belly dancer garb according to their body type. I have seen waaayyyy too many very large women, which very large chests try to wear the silk scarf top and nothing else on the top half of their body. Insufficient support. Insufficient coverage.
Things are shaping up to be...
Pretty. Odd.

Ah, yes the "The bigger you are, the more fabric you need!" problem.    ;)  Some people just don't grasp that concept.

For me, it's the underbust corsets with no support for the bust.  It got to my mom so much such last year (BOP -Boobs On a Platter and women going around without any support) that she's refusing to come this year.   It's very unattractive and rather scary really!

On the up side, I have seen a larger lady wear a simply chemise, skirt, and leather bodice that fit her and she looked absolutely lovely.   The bodice covered her and held her up while also giving her a figure.  She wasn't "jiggling" or exposed at all.   No reason to cover the eyes of the kids while she walked by!  If anything, I think several people posed with her because she really just looked great.

I personally believe that women should wear things appropriate for their bodies. But, it just doesn't happen sometimes.

On the topic of cleavage:
Meh, I've found that most people that have a problem with my bosoms tend to either be jealous or far too puritan for public.

Oh, I'm covered, but my bosoms do actually serve as a flat surface. I wear a 38G for christ's sake. There's not much I can do about it LOL! Even in the most modest of bodices, my cup runneth over. Hell, I could have cleavage in a damn turtleneck.

and thus is teh arguement.

I know what I THINK i look good in. Does that mean I'm always right? oooh man no.

I try to keep the 'girls' good looking, bountiful, but not to the point of heavage (this is why, for me, Ive moved from Pendragons which didnt really look great on me, to the front lace Morescas which do WONDERS!)

So, people who are bare to the point of being illegal (chain mail loin cloth with no undies is illegal in a FAR greater way than a Regimental Celt) ought to be made to amend the issue.

Those who just dont know how to dress for thier shape/size, well, you can look the other way, or, silently priase them for having the GUMPTION and the confidence to wear what they want!

The woman was told to cover up, leave or be arrested by the sheriff.

It never ceases to amaze me what people wear thinking they look good, granted there may be a story behind the larger woman in the bellydance outfit. She may have dropped alot of weight and felt hawt in that outfit.

Blue you always look classy, that is a far leap from the yuck factor lol
