I feel your pain Prometheus, at my height and width it is so freaking hard to find regular clothing that fits right not to mention something for a persona.  I really need to sit down and learn how to sew and upscale patterns.

I have the same problem with the shape, fortunately corsets can do wonderful things for some of my flaws.  I just bought some patterns for men's wear today. 

Do you mind wearing resale merchandise?  You can find some very nice things, straight leg pants, dress shirts with cuffs, vests, etc. for a reasonable price.  I custom make clothing and have found some very well made things.  If you live around Chicago, I might be able to alter things for you.

Regina, thanks for your response. I have nothing. Absolutely nothing. I have suits that are current because of my work. And when I'm not working I wear jeans or shorts and t-shirts. I have a vision for what I'd like to look like but naturally that vision is also a guy shaped very differently than me.

What clothing do you already own? A suit with vest, dress shirt with french cuffs?  Go through what you have first.

Greetings Chicago. I need help! I will be attending and actually presenting at TeslaCon in Madison next month and... well. I don't have a thing to wear. Are there any kind souls in the city or western suburbs willing to throw around some ideas with me for some attire. I am currently building a Nemo-esque diving helmet but for the normal convention times, I'd like to be be comfortable. I have two different alter egos to work with.

If interested, I can offer you thanks and maybe some in kind services. I'm not looking for someone to make me outfits, just help me flesh out some ideas.

Regina, thank you for your kind offer!  Tea would indeed be a delightful way to get acquainted.  We'll be arriving next week.

 

(Right now I am perfumed with the scent of cardboard, I'm covered in a fine layer of dust, and my ears are fatigued by the shriek of packing tape.  It will take a few days to recover!)

A shame it is, I can't go either.  Don't know of anything going on 28-29.  Keep checking events, maybe something interesting will turn up.

Much appreciated Miss Regina, and though I am very certain that I would, I am unable to venture to Chicago land until the following weekend ...
