Digging Deep, Where's the Seam? .. by request
Someone gave me a simple question on Formspring the other day,mainly, "could you do a bodysuit cap?"
Well, of course I "could" do a bodysuit caption. Theoretically, I could make any sort of caption I want. I don't do many bodysuit captions though, because I tend to make non-consensual captions that involve magic. It is hard to put anybody in clothing against their will, as anyone trying to get a child dressed .. or redressed after they've stripped naked after lunch would attest to. I guess you could blackmail/coerce them into it, and if I have to make another body-suit caption, I'll see if I can work on a good enough scenario to make it work. However though, I would think that 90-95 percent of all bodysuit captions would have to be considered at least partially consensual.
Because of that particular bent, I had to come up with a good reason for someone to want to use a bodysuit. Cassandra 'Angel" is big time into Cosplay and would want to use a bodysuit for the weekend so she could look even better in whatever girlish character she wanted to play. Since I'm not entirely comfortable with the concepts of bodysuits, I selfishly brought in the bathrobe wizard from Spells R Us to help sell the idea of being stuck, although looking back at it, I probably could have let it stand on its own and people would've gotten the idea. I usually give the reader the benefit of the doubt that they'll get most of the things I layer into my captions, but I didn't do that here, possibly because I wasn't quite sure of what I had written either. I think that if I had made this caption now, instead of 2 years ago, I might have used the same story line, but the execution would be much better and streamlined.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Since this was requested, and that there has to be some bodysuit fans out there, what methods would you use to get a bodysuit onto a person that doesn't want to wear one? I am assuming that there will be some people that trade with me that would LIKE to have a bodysuit, and I am looking for ideas on how to fulfill it while still maintaining the elements that make a 'Dementia' caption relatively unique. Right now I've got the blackmail/coercion method, and perhaps a paint can like spray that could be applied to the skin. What else can you come up with?
