Ooh, pretty pictures of jewelry!
I love necklaces, because they're the sort of jewelry that I can put on and forget about. I don't wear rings much, if at all, to protect my flute. Bracelets get in the way when I'm typing (I'm a CS major, and I spend too much time on the computer anyway), but I have some pretty ones that I do like to wear. I would wear bracelets more in the summer, except now it's hot and I hate the feel of sweaty skin under the jewelry.

On the subject of jeans, is it worth my time to shop in the guys' section? I own a pair of cargo shorts from the Target boys' section, but I've never tried full length pants.

A resounding 'yes'. They are super comfortable, but I guess it would depend on your body shape.

I'm thinking of getting plugs for my ears- I do like how they look, but I'm not sure how to do it: I've had my ears pierced 5 times, and I'm horribly allergic to all metals commonly used in jewellery. I've heard reports that the piercings smell awful after a time; is there any truth to that?

Its nearly impossible to be allergic to glass jewelery because its so inert. Organic stuff is also less likely for someone to have reactions to (Wood, Bone, Amber, Tusk, Horn, Stone, Quartz) but it breaks down with time and is far more prone to breaking and cracking. Implant grade steel (316LVM ASTM F-138 is the alloy and is what you are looking for - its commonly on piercing jewelery) is something people are not supposed to be allergic to as well as gold (but you are looking at very high quality gold 24K, which is rather porous and not good for healing). Other metals is a very different story. So if you have never tried surgical steel that may be the simplest route - starting small and then working larger. The other option is to get your ears punched to a large gauge.
As for the smell, uhm it happens. I just shower often. I found any metal piercings make it worse, glass is not nearly as bad, and organic stuff is supposed to be great for preventing any smell.

...Or how much you care about jeans conforming to your body shape. Sizing is much easier since guys tend to have stuff measured by waist/inseam... though the waist would probably be a bit larger than your actual measurement so your hips actually fit.

Mmm, I wear my man-jeans low on the hips.

DJ- I was more nervous about the initial piercing. I've tried gold (24k and 18k), silver, titanium and surgical steel, and had reactions to all of them.

My bone plugs seem to actually make the smell worse for me as well as any organic plugs. Glass and stainless steel are completely fine, especially since I clean the holes and the plugs every other night. But generally I save my fancy bone and wood jewelery for special occasions.

As for other jewelery I wear captive ball hoops in both my second piercings and regularly switch out my industrial bar as well as my naval piercing.
There is also a necklace that I never take off which is a blown glass bead containing a mushroom and threaded on a hemp cord. I don't have a picture but anyone whose spent any time near street vendors or in smoke shops or really anywhere that hippies seem to frequent are sure to know what I mean.

Re guy-jeans: I'm pretty skinny in the waist and legs, with proportionally longish legs, but my butt is pretty curvy. I don't like to wear terribly low-rise jeans, but I don't mind wearing a belt. I guess I'll have to just try on the jeans and see.

DJ, your earrings are fantastic, especially your black curly ones.
I have one ear pierced, just because when I had them both done one got infected, and I just got used to having one earring most of the time. It makes life much easier when I'm getting dressed in a hurry to only have to find one earring. Usually it's just a plain stud, but occasionally I'll wear something long and dangly in there.
I have thick fingers, so I only have a couple of rings I wear very occasionally, and I only wear them on the left hand so they don't get in the way when writing or drawing.

I'm off to try that :D

But first, woman thread, I'd really like someone's opinion. My trivia team's theme is apparently "suits and sunnies". As the only girl on the team, I've been told that I can either wear a suit, or something feminine and formal. All my friends are larger than me by a lot so I can't borrow their suits, and I mentioned this to a friend of mine who replied that she had the perfect thing; she presented me with this today:

I LOVE my fish earrings! They're flat plastic that's been painted on. They were bought by my mom at a craft convention in edmonton. they are my favourite, because they have character!

The typewriter key my sister bought in a store, but it might have also been locally made.

Luna, do you have a blazer hanging around? You can wear it with tailored pants.

Alternately, you could pin that suit top at the back, so that it has a little shape, and then find some ridiculous over-the-top Jackie O sunglasses, and make it a costume worn ironically.

What's a sunnie?

I'd also like to say that the skirt suit is atrocious, but it *does* seem to match your hair. I'd maybe keep the skirt and black tights and put a well fitted black button down shirt with it. orrrrrrrr... I'd go to any second-hand shop and put together something more flattering and less HOLYSHITBARBIEDOLLS! for very cheap. Lets see what other pieces you have that we could meld into something suitish?

That's what I thought, they are awesome though, and the kind of earrings, I imagine, that make everyone who notices them smile. If not remark on how awesome they are.

And luna, the skirt isn't bad, seems to fit okay, but the top is pretty bad. I think parka got it very right, with the ruffles it kind of screams "BARBIEEEE!"*. You'd definitely be able to wear a black dress shirt with the skirt, though, or maybe a nice blazer.

*I think I had a Barbie outfit, inherited from an older cousin, that featured similar ruffles. However, the ruffles were on a one shouldered, hot pink, shiny spandex tunic. Which went over a one shouldered, neon blue, shiny spandex bodysuit. I had some fabulous 80s hand-me-down Barbie clothes. And real clothes, come to think of it...

Man, I kind of love the suit on you, Luna. It's pretty hard to manage to look good in strong colours like that, but somehow you do. I mean, if I put that on I'd look sooo washed out. I would recommend wearing the shirt as a jacket with a plain black top under. It could also be a good occasion for a waisted belt!

Okay, thank you for the input! With the consensus on the shirt- yeah, I think I will leave that out if I don't just dump the whole thing.

I don't own a blazer, or anything remotely formal (I'm excluding ball gowns here), but, Graphite, I do like your idea. How can I pin it without causing too much damage? I'm fairly certain I could find a black buttoned shirt at the op-shop nearby which would be nice- I do like the skirt part; it's oddly flattering.

Parka- "sunnies" are just sunglasses.

Thanks, e_e :) I'll post my other experiments with it later.

Luna, how are your sewing skills?
Ideally, if you're ok at sewing, you can take the back of the jacket and... hrm, this is going to require a diagram.
Spoiler:
Image

Sorry about the pathetic drawing quality, this was a two-minute sketch.

Step one: Put on the jacket, and have someone pull together the fabric at the back, pinching it together so that two pieces of the mid-back are pulled towards the centre of the back, roughly equidistant from the centre, and you're happy with the fit at the waist (see picture, because I'm hopeless at explaining this sort of thing verbally). Then have that same someone mark the place that they pinch on either side, either with chalk or with safety pins, and measure the distance between those two points when they're still gathered together. Then let the jacket fall back to the way it sits normally, leaving the markings on. (Alternately, leave it pinned to the waist measurement you like, then you can measure it yourself when you take it off.)

Step two: On the places that you marked, sew buttons, preferably large ones in an unobtrusive colour. Buttons, if you sew them with a minimum of tugging, are pretty easy to remove without causing damage.

Step three: Find some fabric that's a similar colour to the jacket, and cut an oblong piece of it, the same length as the measurement you made earlier plus about five centimetres; cut buttonholes. (Ideally, you'd also sew a hem along the edges of that oblong, and sew proper buttonholes, but let's presume you aren't as likely to waste a heap of time on this as I would be. For this reason, use fabric that's unlikely to fray, like velvet, or alternately cover the entire piece of fabric with a layer of PVA glue, which will definitely stop fraying for as long as you need it. Pick a strong, sturdy fabric, no satiny stuff.)

Step four: Put the oblong of fabric on to the back of the jacket by putting your attached buttons through the buttonholes.
Et voila! Hopefully a suit that fits a little better!
If it's not just the waist that's too loose, but the whole back, you can repeat the process with points along the back, making the row of buttons into a sort of fashion statement.

I'm a bit of a costume nerd.

Ok, I'm going to start with the woman thread.
Everyone pick a photo of you that you love, full-length or just portrait, and I'll do individual portraits, then try and squeeze everyone into the same page. (This could take a few days... Or weeks...)

Picture under the spoiler. It's old, and doesn't look much like me, but I like it lots :)

Glass and stainless steel are completely fine, especially since I clean the holes and the plugs every other night. But generally I save my fancy bone and wood jewelery for special occasions.

Yeah I really only wear my bone ones for special occasions too. They don't really sit the greatest in there for sleeping and such I find.

Awwe thanks! I really really like glass and if I were to go to art school it would be something that I would love to work with. The black ones are Borneo spirals, I really like gorilla glass' line of jewelery. When my ears had smaller holes I had a smaller pair of those black spirals too :)
I really really really like your jewelery though and am entirely jealous (good stuff around here is ridiculously impossible to find).
The fossil from Canada there is Ammonite - its just an opalized lil critter. Its actually from my part of the country too~ (I'm quite a geek when it comes to rocks and such ^^; )

Oh and yay art! <3

I'll submit a photo for sketching as well if I may, but I can't choose. The last one's a few years old and prettier than I really am (yay professional photographer). Also, woah, pink.

Both of those are really pretty. You look great in the second one, true, but you have such a natural smile on the first one that I think it's better.

GraphiteGirl, I think it would be cool if you made it a collage of specifically all the women of this thread. Maybe that's what you meant to do anyway, but it seems like a really nice idea, for some reason.
