May the Sixth Be With You!

May the Fourth, or Star Wars Day (from the pun May the Force be with you), just passed as I write this. But what if you missed it, didn’t celebrate it, or didn’t have enough fun?

Well, I’ve got the perfect second chance day for that!

Welcome to May the Sixth, punning on that most evil of Star Wars organizations, the Sith!

If you missed May the Fourth, shame on you! You deserve a Sith coming your way!

If you didn’t celebrate May the Fourth, really shame on you! You deserve a Sith Lord and then some!

And if you didn’t have enough fun, here’s your chance to have some more fun! I got some little graphics below for you to start and share.

Enjoy and May the Sixth be with you! 😉

This one below that I found has not only specific measurements for what qualifies as certain body types, but also a distribution of women in society that carry that body. The latter should be taken with caution as obesity is a lot worse now than it was back in 2003 when the sample of 6318 women were scanned. The lack of a “round” or “diamond” classification where the waist is the biggest of the bust, waist and hip measurements should drive that point home pretty clearly. Women in different cultures may also have different distributions of these shapes. However, you can still get an idea of what share of the American (or similar) female population has what body type shown, and which ones might be more or less common now than back in 2003.

A Practical Fashion Picture Dictionary Using Infographics

What’s your fashion vocabulary like? Mine’s not very big, relatively speaking, and especially for someone who makes clothes. I know the basic garment types and so on, but terminology like types of neck lines, skirts, tops and so on, I’m very short on. I know a lot of what generally exists out there, but not by name for the most part. So one of the things I had on my 2015 To Do List was to expand my fashion vocabulary.
