Re: Do clothes make a difference?
I wear a spandex vest under my clothes because it makes my waist feel longer, which is an incompatibility between this body and whatever body I might otherwise occupy. I also modify my pants to allow room for my tail because it's ultra sensitive.

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
I hate bra's and unstreatchy- jeans and other constricting pants. Give me foamy platform sandals (or comfy fuzzy platform boots) a miniskirt and a comfy t-shirt and I'm good (I wear a bra it's just looser than it should be and it's the first thing I take off when I get home). (I also can't stand things on my head)

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
Thanks for the reminder, Shiari.

I love draping myself in jewelry. In high school it was anything that at least looked valuable and shined. From there it was fit onto to where ever jewelry can find a place on the female human body that didn’t involve creating a place (no pricing except the two in the ears).

Since my tastes have refined and I have toned done a bit (that that’s more to do with an empty wallet).

It’s not so much to display my jewelry for others, but more to wear it fro myself. Something to look at and appreciate on my body that belongs to me and can be taken where I go without too much of a worry about it not being there when I look down again.
Besides that, it just feels good on my skin.

I like putting flowers or combs, barrettets in my hair. I did back then and I still do now which I finda little nonchalant.

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
My mom had a hellova time keeping baby me in clothing. I'd tear it off like the Hulk, diaper included. The majority of my baby pictures are of me posing in the buff. I don't understand modesty, I'd be happy with a fig leaf and two coconuts if I wouldn't be arrested. The army kinda changed me though - wearing a uniform and wearing it correctly. Though I don't possess any static phantom limbs, I have (or like to think I have) the need to exude aural energy, so I would be a very happy camper being a nudist because clothing in general makes me cranky.

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
I'm actually not into the "being free" trend. I'm far more comfortable in a pair of stiff jeans, heavy shoes, and a t-shirt. I like free range of movement, but it feels natural for me to feel like I'm wearing leg bracers, and modest armor. If I could get away with it, I'd be wearing bracers on my wrists and probably fingerless gloves. As far as wings go, from most indicators I get from my otherkin friends, everything's bound up anyhow so a shirt isn't going to make much difference.

I also like wearing a single silver chain around my neck. Dunno why, I'm just partial to it. Maybe it's all the other chains that are wrapped around me. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
If I had a choice, I'd be naked all the time. I'm very proud of my body, "imperfections" and all, and see no reason why folks should feel that nakedness is shameful. But that's just me, of course.

I'm still wearing the silver feather pendant Kaoine gave me. Took it off for a few months, for reasons I can't remember; and then I put it back on one day, and haven't taken it off in weeks. It's very sentimental for me.

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
I like minimal, tightly-fit clothing the best. I especially like tube tops because they give me a better range of movement. I hate wearing coats or any kind of shoe that's not a knee-high boot. And of course, as I've stated before, I have an obsession with wearing metal on my forearms. I'm another person that would be wearing bracers if I could get away with it.

Also, recently I've discovered that I want a cloak. I've worn makeshift ones before and it's much more comfortable than a jacket or a long-sleeved shirt. I'm not sure what that's about.

Re: Do clothes make a difference?
I like clothes that help me blend in. That means, in essence, blue jeans, black tennis shoes, a brown shirt for preference, and a grey zip-up hoodie. However, good bracers would be nice, too, as long as they don't constrict my fighting style too much.

Two other things that I'd like if I could get them would be a cloak and a sword. The cloak thing is mostly stemmed off of The Name of the Wind's advertisement of it. As far as I can tell, it has all of the greatness of bringing a towel with you without actually having a towel with you. And the sword- I don't want some tanto. I want a bastard sword. Not to use, but just to freak people out. I don't know how long or how often I'd wear it, though.
