Remember how I said we were winding down on Fanime content? I lied. We have a bunch more. And we haven't even started on the Anime Vice panel video! Guess that'll have to be next week.

Anyway, in this video, RedRoses and I try on corsets at the Xcentricities booth at the exhibit hall. Oof.

Actually, they're nowhere near as painful as they seem like they would be, although that doesn't mean you don't feel restricted by them. As RedRoses notes, they do crazy things to your posture! The corset that I tried on was $250, I believe.

Would you try on a corset? Yes, that's a question for you too, guys-- men can wear 'em and look good in 'em too!

I'd wear one just to prove that they'd look just as good on guys as they would on girls. Nice video by the way. ^^

Oh the pain. Well it wasn't super painful but man it really makes your stomach lurch inwards. Not enough to throw up thankfully.

Despite it being really tight, it was easy to breath in.

Friend of mine bought a corset in London last week.
 She was creepily happy about it, I've never fully understood why one would go to such an extent to look "good" (of course I'm saying this as a member of a gender who would really never wear a corset).

I assume it's good for anti-slouching?

Ethan & the zoom, he'd turn from Gia and end up zoomed into the seller's face :D.
 Cool video, fanime continues to seem really awesome.

I don't know why, but the second I saw that woman putting the corsets on you, I felt like I should get in a fist fight with her. No clue why, but that was seriously my first though. She could probably whoop my ass.

That looks no fun and not worth the $200+
