      I think a good yet easy way of getting people interested is just to expose them to the TSU logo in some way. If you have merch like a patch or a button or a t-shirt, wear those out and about, especially in places where you know a lot of people. At a carnival/event and find a face painting booth? Get the logo painted on you! Need a selfie for an online profile? Stick the logo in there somewhere! Odds are, people are going to be curious and ask what the heck that smiling thing even is, which is your cue to tap in to your inner infomercial narrator and explain what the Army is all about. If people are really interested they’ll definitely ask for more information

      That is fantastic! I’m really loving the spats in particular. They add so much character!

      Geez, that is definitely a mixed bag of a situation. It’s fantastic that you were able to put a name to your feelings and sort them out! And I’m so glad that you’ve been able to find support thus far. I couldn’t begin to fully understand what’s going on in your life, but I absolutely hope the people close to you are supportive and accepting, as well as other people you encounter. I wish you the very best of luck with whatever steps you decide to take in the ways of your transition!

      Haha, that’s awesome! We should make this a fashion trend.
      I still have trouble finding decent yellow nail polish. :(  

      Thank you very much! I agree, this would be a fantastic trend! Also, I’m in the same boat when it comes to yellow nail polish. The one I used here is from Sinful Colors, but it’s SO sheer that I needed about 4 coats of the yellow itself ON TOP OF a white base. Ah well, the search continues!

      Thanks Jan, And I have never felt comfortable wearing a kilt in public, but now I’m just like, “part of the uniform” (I’ve always liked the idea of wearing skirts, I’m jealous of girls :p)  

      Hey, skirts are awesome! It’s great that you’ve been able to come out of your comfort zone and really get down to trying new things. For that, I commend you!

      That’s looking awesome! It’s definitely got a lot of character to it. Actually, I really like the idea of having a field uniform in addition to having a main one. The field uniform can be a bit lighter and maybe more casual if you’re going somewhere possibly messy and don’t want your main uniform to get ruined. That, or you’re just very tired and don’t want to put on a complicated uniform, but invasion beckons. Thanks for the fantastic idea, comrade!

      After thinking about it forever I finally put together a sketch of what I want my uniform to be. Tada, tell me what you think.

      Hat-Black with yellow ribbon Peaked Cap with TSU patch

               -Black Garrison Cap with TSU logo patch

              -Khaki Aussie hat

      Jacket-Black Peel Frock Coat with proper TSU arm patches and silver buttons

      Belt-Black/brown with silver hardware Sam Brown belt

      Armband-Yellow armband with TSU/Division velcro patch

      Pants-Grey/khaki cargo pants

      Leg wraps-Black/brown Puttees

      Boots-Black/brown high top combat boots.

      Should I do brown and khaki stuff or black and grey stuff?  

      This is a great concept! It looks like it’ll be a fun project to put together.

      Jan, I love it!  I REALLY dig that skirt!  I can’t wait to see the finished product!bliss_gif  

      Thank you! Now, the tricky part is to figure out how to get the fabric to actually drape like that….

      That looks like a great concept Jan, how are you thinking of making the chest piece?

      Be sure to post in progress pics when you’re working on it, okay?  

      Oh, and regarding the actual shirt part, it’ll really just be a fabric piece that’s sewn onto an already-made shirt, to which I’ll also add the collar, cuffs, and buttons.

      I’m not quite sure how to tackle the corset, to be honest. I have a pattern for one, so that might help a little bit. I think for now, it’ll just be a lot of studying up and trial and error. Luckily, I already own the boots and leggings, so there’s that expense out of the way! And yes, when I actually get around to working on it, I’ll post plenty of pictures!

      Let’s hope everyone can see this! If so, what are your opinions? Any suggestions? Is this acceptable as a uniform?

      I have to confirm that I can’t see the attached image, when I checked out the source it redirected me to the hotmail login page.

      I would suggest trying imgur as an image host in the future.  

      Sorry about that! I’m still getting used to how this website works. As they say, “The more you know…….”
