Default Into the breach....

So, I've not been around here much - have been busy with looking for a job and getting involved with a new hobby (wargaming, mostly painting 28mm models!).

But starting at the end of October, I'm going to be working in a temp retail job (my first ever retail job.) I will ve working in a costume shop over the Halloween period. The initial contract is for 2 weeks, but if I get on well then I might be able to stay on until Christmas.

And yes, I will have to be in costume for the job. But the good news is, I get to keep it at the end of the contract period!

So this is going to be hard work, but I'm hoping it'll be a lot of fun. And hey, if it sucks horribly then it's only for 2 weeks.

Cool, what kind of costume? Do you get to choose?

That sounds like fun! Photos of you in costume, perchance ... ?

And you'll have CS stories to share. See? Silver linings!

Hope you have a good time and the contract plays out. And don't forget that it's pretty hard to go too overboard doing a costume gig.

Rapsy!

I do get to choose my own costume - sadly being a slightly larger girl with...erm....larger assets, some of the costumes will either be too small or get me arrested. I have also got to take into account that I'm going to have to wear it, and walk about and help people, all day. So it has to be comfy.

I've picked out a tavern wench costume. It's a long skirt with a low-cut corset-y top. Looks nice and comfy, plus I can wear flat boots with it, which is a must as I will likely be on my feet all day.



I've tried to add a link to the costume, not sure if it'll work. I'd rather not add the direct link to it on their website as it'll show where I'll be working.

I do believe that's the first time I ever heard a woman describe a corset as 'comfortable'.

Depends on what they wear otherwise.

(But she did say "corset-y.")

My friends who enjoy corsets say that if its uncomfortable you are likely wearing it incorrectly. But then... they enjoy wearing them, so they make take comfort in the discomfort... LOL

28mm wargaming? Not Warhammer/40k is it? (those are 28mm heroic scale)

If it's uncomfortable, you're doing it wrong
