Ebay - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

Ebay
On a whim, I bid on this top, but I lost the auction. I took it as a sign I wasn't meant to have it. Now they've posted another one, and I'm debating whether I should try again. I certainly don't need it, I don't know if it would look good on me, and I don't know if I'd ever have the guts to actually wear it anywhere.... but I think it's cool-looking. Opinions? Anyone?

Oh wow... that would look great.

Go for it!

Just don't blame me if you're not happy with it ;)

It does look very cool. But don't get it if you're not going to wear it.

I think that you would look super, duper hot in that. Especially if you are thinking of wearing it for you ice skating thingys...
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 13th, 2003 12:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, I don't think it would work well for skating - plus, we have team dresses anyway. Still....it's tempting....

Really want to win the bid? Use esnipe.

It's definetly go over at a con...
But then almost anything you'd wear would go over at a con... ;-)

ooh, interesting tool. Thanks for the pointer!

Yeah, definitely looks like good "con-wear". Could also be good for dancing, if I'm feeling daring. (:

According to my calculations, you should definitely wear that sort of thing a lot... :)

It's cute, and certainly a woman who can wear Saran Wrap can wear anything. I like the back-lacing thing. Most of my ballgowns are backless in some way; I'm a big fan of it.

I'm not sure about the sleeves, though.

I don't own anything backless, but I've been thinking something like that would be fun! I found it by searching on "backless", actually. I'm a bit worried about support issues, but I think I'll give it a try anyway.

Yeah, the sleeves might be flowy and pretty, or they might be weird. Hard to tell, with them pinned up like that.

Support

Tape. Normal adhesive tape from the first aid aisle of the drugstore. You just make a big U around your parts, and then make another one. It works better than the stick-on bra cups, unless you're of the enormous persuasion.

Re: Support

Ahhh! I will try that. I'm definitely not enormous. The second U goes under the first one? Guess it will take some experimentation... (:
thenisaid From: thenisaid Date: August 13th, 2003 12:40 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Support

The second U is just sort of a second layer. If you find the first layer went on a little lopsided, you compensate with the second. It doesn't take that much experimentation; I have not yet found a wrong way to tape my boobs, except that you don't want the legs of the U to get too close to your armpits.

Re: Support

Makes sense...thanks for the advice!!

It's hot. I would totally go for it. I do have a problem with false advertising though. The ad says it's a one of a kind top, but you said it was the second one like it to be posted.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 13th, 2003 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Well, it's posted by the same company. I guess they're just posting them occasionally....does that make it less false? I'm not sure.

Just thinking about it makes my mouth water ! Howard

Go for it!

It certainly isn't one-of-a-kind since they have 3 posted right now, in different sizes. From the picture, it looks like pretty good quality construction, tho. I tried to find either the store or the top elsewhere on the web and was unsuccessful. You might email Noir or someone to ask if they carry it and what the price is so you don't pay too much.

FYI, the place where I got my overcoat also sells goth tops, http://www.thedarkangel.co.uk/cogent/list8.html and I was extremely satisfied with their service.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 13th, 2003 12:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, can't "one-of-a-kind" also mean "we're the only ones who make this sort of thing"? If not, then I guess it's not.

Your overcoat is way cool. However, I like the top because it has that nifty strappy back, not so much because it is goth....the dark angel people don't seem to have any backless tops.
cannibal From: cannibal Date: August 13th, 2003 01:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
you're right about the backless tops. The tops aren't made by the ebay seller, they say, "in original packaging from manufacturer" and the maker is Pia, but I haven't been able to figure out who Pia is.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 13th, 2003 01:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
ah-ha, I've figured it out! Pia is the Parachute Industry Associaion! It all makes sense now.... That's definitely the kind of outfit I'd want to wear, if parachuting.

Another interesting point: they have 3 posted right now, in S/M/L, but each one has the same measurements. Are they all the same size, or have they forgotten to update the measurements?

But still....I think it's nifty....and different....
cannibal From: cannibal Date: August 13th, 2003 02:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
I would guess they've forgotten to update the measurements.

Silly pussycat from the sky! Are you a personal friend of James Bond?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 14th, 2003 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Why yes, indeed I am. *grin*
cannibal From: cannibal Date: August 13th, 2003 08:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Their buyitnow price is $21.99, so don't pay more than that whatever you do.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 13th, 2003 12:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
True, true...good point.
