Things are slow-going for me at the present. There’s less time for these kinds of DIY experiments. But I am absolutely drawn to doing more DIY projects because I can never find the clothes that I like, in my size. I am a plus size goth, and I know there are plenty others out there like me. I got into a short discussion last night with someone on the subject of Torrid, which used to be advertised as the plus size version of Hot Topic. But these days as we both noted, Hot Topic has more goth/geek attire than Torrid. Torrid’s clothing has a couple slits across the back and seems to be lacking in skulls, spiders, and other dark designs and prints. And thrifting at Torrid is almost impossible considering the price tag. There might be considerable more options across the pond or even on the east and west coast, but here in the Midwest, the options are slim. So at least for me, its back to the DIY platform.
