Costumes currently amassed (I have mentioned I love clothes, yes?):

Wench - corset-top thing must be altered or an actual renaissance-type corset be obtained if this costume is to properly survive... Skirt also needs to be taken in a bit. Shirt still fits, because it's a shirt, but it's too big around. Might have to take it in a bit as well.
Geisha - lovely kimono-style robe found for 1/3 the price I saw the exact same garment sold for elsewhere. Niiice. Will probably forgo an actual geisha-type look in favor of a sluttier version (black lace! Wheee!).
Stock goth - stripeys, fishnet, black anything-I-can-get-my-hands-on, etc.
Gothy hooker - Same as above, just with more cleavage and lace. Mmm, lace. And any bondage gear I can obtain. *smiles sweetly*
Punk/raver - Not much, but it's there. Bright colors, odd clothing combinations. Don't wear it often, but I can...
Gypsy - messing with the peasant blouse a wee bit more should leave it resting just off my shoulders instead of hanging off my boobs, which is a precarious position for any article of clothing. Especially shirts. Must obtain more semitransparent scarves... I currently have two. minnaloushe's pretty rose skirt will go with this costume, and can be added to the stock goth or renfair costumes as well.
Hippie - old dress of my mother's from the 60's. Difficult to wear due to the fact that my shoulders are more broad than hers. Curses. Another hippie combo involves the gypsy peasant blouse and a skirt of my sister's.
Boy - got a lot of this one, and it's one I wear often. Just generic guy's clothing. Guy's shorts are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than girl's shorts. More comfy, too. And pockets you can actually PUT stuff in! who knew. I love cargo pants. I stash things in mis pantalones.
70's chick - Groovy dress obtained for $1. I am the thrift store GODDESS.
Graduate - The only one I won't wear in public. Me cap 'n gown.

Costumes I will eventually obtain:
Schoolgirl - I have a skirt that would work. Now I need the proper top. I might break down eventually and go to an actual school uniform shop to get an authentic schoolgirl outfit... this will be after I lose some more weight. natch.
Sari - they are so gorgeous. Nicole wants one, too. I've seen some in thrift stores but never actually bought one.
Opera-type goth-thing - I have these ripped-up gloves that go to the elbow (perhaps opera-length gloves should be looked into..) and a cape. I need a Phantom of the Opera or even Mardi Gras -style mask (If I cannot find one, I'll buy a plain one and paint it up pretty) and I can probably pull together frilly, frouffy clothes from my goth stuff.
Jedi - I will be a Jedi. watch me. I will. *waves a hand in front of your face* I am a Jedi...
Fairy - I will make some wings eventually. Then I can pull together assorted goth/punk/random stuff to make a decent fairy. Might have to rip up one old, slightly translucent skirt of mine. It'd look much better tattered...
Cyberpunk/Cybergoth - Brother's paintball gloves + any random computer bits I can obtain. And shiny things. I like shiny things. hee.
Angel - Actually have to find something slightly whiter in my wardrobe. heh. Might take a while.
Dragon-lady - if I attatch small horns to a thin headband and arrange my hair just so, it will disappear and the horns will look decently 'natural'. then I just gotta make a tail and attatch it.
Pirate - I have a girly-pirate costume halfway there... possibly entirely, depending on what I can steal from Nicole. For a guy-style pirate-y look I'll probably hack up my now-too-large black jeans to turn them into long, raggedy shorts. Over stripey tights, they work.
Death (my version, not Death from the comic...)- I have the cape. Just need a new scythe (I will get a plastic one and place the fake blade on a less easily-destroyed staff - my first scythe got broken) and a mask. Yes, a mask. I'm thinking Phantom of the Opera-type, but with designs all over it. I have plans.

Costume-bits I need:
- shoes that lace up like ballet shoes. I need a pair that are like your basic black chunky mary janes (or even a pair of basic black flats, though the MJs would look cuter), but with a black ribbon lace-up to the knee. And a pair that's like moccasins, but with a soft leather lace-up for the hippie/gypsy costume. I will make these as soon as I can obtain the basic materials. Hell, if I can find shoes that fit at Payless, I'll alter them. (My feet are a size 12-13 in mens or womens US sizes; it varies depending on the style of the shoe)
- that shirt Mak wore in the first few pages of ML. I used to have it, but it's way too big now, and it'd actually be easier to alter another tank top (which is how I made it in the first plac) than to go through the hassle of taking it in. Was a messy alteration job anyway; I can do better than that. It's not really necessary for any particular costume, but I like it a lot.
- a scarf that's not so long that tying it around my head looks ridiculous. maybe just a basic bandanna. Will work for gypsy and pirate costumes.
- corset. Not like the one I have (that's gonna be entirely Nicole's in a month or so, given my progressive shrinking), but a renaissance-style corset, meant to be worn as outerwear. Can be obtained at renfair, provided I save my money.

... it will take me years. And I have to wait until I stop losing weight. But oh, what fun it'll be. Any suggestions?
