It's ok.
You're not a goth.
You have nothing to worry about.

It's normally not common for goths to be in the 'larger' state of body so normally they don't make clothes that big. A simple solution, though is just to buy plain black jeans/shirts/clothes. Goth is DIY so aslong as it suits you you're fine. Of course if there's a certain brand you want that could be a problem. Try the brand "TRIPP", they're more of a mall-goth brand but they make very baggy/large clothing, so they might be able to help you out. But if not then just stick with plus-size black/band clothing.

As much as Demi usually has no clue what he/she/it/whatever is talking about the point about getting plain clothes that can be found just about anywhere is a good one. You can either alter the clothes to give them more character or you can keep them simple and use accessories to make the outfit. If you really don't want to deal with diy, you don't have time for it, or you don't really have the skill to make something from just about nothing then Torrid is kind of like Hot Topic's "bigger" cousin, for the most part the stuff is overpriced crap but careful viewing of the clearance section may yield some positive results.

Try a hand at sewing and make clothes yourself.

See I can make good points even though I'm odd. And by the way, I'm a he.

thanks for the help Solumina and Demi, as far as max and malice, f*ck you, you don't like bigger people, fine, keep it to yourself, oh and YOU don't get to tell ME what i am and am not!!!

on a different note, darkness, never be ashamed of yourself, I'm big, i know it, and i wouldn't change it for anything, if people don't like you for who you are, f*ck 'em the only person you need acceptance from is yourself.

...... wow my shrink would be proud.......

Admins: I apologize for the language, i shall keep it pg-13 from now on

Wait, I didn't declare that you were anything, except fat, which you affirmed yourself to be in your original post. Of anyone in this thread, I offered the best advice, in telling you to slim the fuck down rather than attempt in vain to find a shortcut around the problems that arise as a result of your probably unhealthy weight.

Really? Not even to look good, be healthy, and fit into clothes?

you could always try to have corsets and such custom made but I have seen corsets and romantic gothic clothing on ebay that are quite stunning!

Max, that statement was really aimed more toward malice, and youre right I did admit I was fat. But the fact remains that I was asking for clothing advice on the fashion forum, not how to make myself more like every body else...

and no im not trying to avoid the truth (I admitted to it in the first place, didnt I?). Besides, I doubt just losing weight will be enough. I mean, Im 6'4 with a 63" shoulder and a 41" waist (yes, I did verify).

But all in all, I believe whiskerton had the best solution, and I suppose knowing tailoring would be nothing but beneficial.

Because trying to sort it out rather than work round it is totally not anything but beneficial.

Wear black vinyl. Lots and lots of black, shiny vinyl. Don't forget the dog collar/leash, and Crow makeup.

People tend not to notice your weight if you accessorize with a chainsaw and/or large-calibre rifle.

Dearest Wraith,

I would REALLY appreciate the help.
Have you tried Phaze Clothing, in the UK? Well known UK gothic and fetish clothing manufacturer. Worth a try...

http://www.phazeclothing.com/

I rather like the Diva Goths; the big and beautiful Goth women. There's nothing wrong with being big and beautiful!

Curves are good; it gives one something to grab hold of during orgasm! LOL!

I found this sight you might be interested in too, it sells pretty much all goth clothing/accessories/etc and sometimes they have plus size clothing. I don't know if it helps much but I figured I'd mention it to you anyway. :P
