    I actually tend to do a better job with my fingers, sponges just always seem to take the foundation right back off.

    Is it too recherché of me to plan my wardrobe around a combination of military shirts, fishnet sleeves and sequinned socks

    I've always really loved long coats but I'm very tall and also my broad shoulders and thick arms limit me mostly jackets made for Men, which are usually shorter than those made for Women. Last year I bought two grey wool greatcoats and cut one up to make the other one floor-length and hooded. I just did the exact same thing with two similar black wool coats I thrifted. It's amazingly satisfying having coats that fit me and are also the right (impractical) length and I wanted to post in order to brag but also to say that if anyone is in a similar position, this is actually pretty easy to do and not have it look obvious, even if you're shit at sewing like me. People never notice until I point it out and even then sometimes it takes them a minute to actually see the join. Here's me wearing the greatcoat - perhaps not super useful but the only picture I have of the full length

    Just so everyone knows, H&M is having a huge sale right now to get rid of their winter stuff. I got a coat for $10. There's also pants and sweaters. Might be worth checking out if anyone has been needing more winter stuff.

    If you can pardon the mess. It's my $10 coat! Yes, the collar does fold down across my shoulders so that I look like a rich woman whose husband went missing under very mysterious circumstances, isn't that tragic, oh also she's the sole heir, WEIRD.

    Also I don't know if this picture will show up, so I'm gonna toy with it until it does :)

    EDIT: okay for me it's showing up, but I don't know if that means anything.

    My hands look less malformed in person and when my nails are longer. They've always looked a little wonky.

    It hit me very suddenly, as ideas often do, that I'm in dire need of a calligraphy-print skater dress. Such an item is not to be found; if I get the material, I can ask my grandmother to give me a hand in making one. Making clothes would solve a lot of my problems. Obvious problem though is I'm having trouble finding the right material. All the ones I can find have tiny print which wouldn't be visible from a distance - I'm picturing big fat ink-blotty letters - and most of them are meant for curtains. Do we have a making-clothes thread?

    If you can draw what you want, there's always Spoonflower.com --or, someone else there might have made the thing you want.

    I have a very clear image of the type of print I want but I don't know what words would be in the script.

    Nonsense is fine, poems are great, just...if it's in another language have someone look at it.

    There was this beautiful Japanese skirt that I didn't get because I couldn't stand the idea of walking around in something with the words "toy milk au lait please" embroidered prominently upon it.

    Lazarae You won't be the death of me

    Can someone assist? I've got a dye my dad recced but he's in another state and also at work. It says to "heat treat" for 15 minutes. Looking online people talk about "sitting under the dryer" and I'm kind of ??? on what this means. Can I just attack my head with a blow dryer? Looking at video tutorials people either skip that part or people just wait without applying heat, but I can't find a single video that isn't either a wig dye or a very different hair texture so it might be that?

    I may be fixating on this one detail because anxiety but if someone can explain that would be great.

    It's usually those heaters that you sit under at the salon, but I think if you have the diffuser attachment for your hairdryer you can use it in a low heat. Like from what I know dyes ask for heat because it shortens the time needed for the chemical reaction, so technically you can also go without it if you wait longer?

    So I´m considering cutting my hair but I´m not sure yet, nor am I sure what style.
    Could anyone throw suggestions, ideally with pictures, of nonbinary haircuts at me?
    Only thing I don´t really want is the nonbinary undercut (TM). Nothing against it, just not what I want.

    (probably might be able to get something like this by going for like. Shoulder Length Shaggy Masculine Cut or sth?)
