Either use colors in the corset (like black sides) to give the illusion of the waist being made smaller, or pad the top and hips of the outfit to make up for it!

You could also put the tentacle through a steel tunnel, that way you can still wear it and not have the problem of the clay touching your skin Cheesy

Polymer clay is not acceptable for making plugs out of. It's not something that would be safe to have in a piercing for any period of time. Polymer clay has its uses, but plugs isn't one of them.
I refuse to say it's okay just because "people wear it and they are okay!" or "people sell it!"
People also pierce themselves all the time with dirty safety pins and don't get staph, or MRSA, however there are also people who actually do get sick.
It's best to just save up and buy the plugs made from good materials, or loop the clay through a nice metal tunnel or something.

You could throw a patch on the spot, then a few patches around the rest of the skirt to match. Hearts or something? Large stitches on red hearts would make an adorable skirt.

Corsets *make* you have the boobage. haha. I've seen men pull off more cleavage than I can ever even wish for with only a bra.

everytime ive ever worn a corset it just flattens my boobs...doesnt push em up.

Well, it also depends on what kind you wear. Real vrs something you get at charlotte russe, and also what shape.
Also it helps to lean forward and do a 'fluff'. :p

Def try to find a good gentle shampoo. I use gothrosary.com's shampoo now, and it is really nice. Also bleach your hair and use a good brand of dye. Special effects, raw, and whatever that new brand hot topic is carrying is kind of amazing. The new brand they have stains EVERYTHING, though. My tub is green and purple now. haha

Make sure your hair is SUPER clean when you go to dye it. Like i fyou bleach it, Scrub the heck out of it afterwards.
When you dye it the color, leave it in for however long. I usually wait an hour or two, and it's dry by the time I wash it. Wash it with cool water, not hot. Condition it and leave the conditioner in for a few minutes to 'lock' it in.
Then, don't wash your hair for AT LEAST 24 hours. A couple of days is even better.

Always go as long between washings as you can, and use cool water on your hair and don't wash the whole head. Use a tiny amount of shampoo (most people use more than they really need without knowing. You don't need huge suds.. ) and just wash the scalp.

I also use a hair straightener, which could or could not make it stick more. haha. I don't know.

But anyway, I usually don't have to re-dye for a couple months at a time, and thats usually because of roots, not fading. And I currently have blue on most of my head!

Oh, and stay out of the sun!

I've done my hair in a pomp lots of times. I have straight, fairly thick hair, and I've found what works best is to comb the section of hair you want in the pomp straight up, put a hair elastic on there about 4 inches from the roots. You can put a bit of hairspray on now. Now take about four hairpins and stick them in, close to the hair elastic but on the side closer to your forehead. Stick them in so the opening is pointing straight toward your face. More hairspray. Ta-da!

I've been calling hair salons asking if it's possible to get a finger-wave permanent but they seem to think not..what do you all think?

You will probably have to go to a salon for older women. I had to do that, as I got fingerwaves for my senior pictures. Cheesy
Also you can do it yourself at home. All you need is hair setting stuff, or good gel, papers, and long clips. You can get both of those things at any beauty store.
It's pretty easy to do. Wet your hair and put in the setter/gel, then wave it, paper it, and clip it. Blow dry low and ta-da!
