My web service cost about $200 a year. It needs your help to stay afloat even a one time $5 to $15 donation helps. All proceeds keep the site up and running. I dont get many donations this year 100% of the cost is out of my pocket. so i decided it must be put down.MarilynBardot has written you a FAQ and Tips section as posted below because I (Franchii) is a big girl and have not personally made myself a set but M.B. has. M.B.'s are both very fine sets and represents very much, the right way to make them ,so please read the whole FAQ and tips before asking questions. This will save you and I alot of time and much effort has gone into the FAQ and Tips. But If your inquiry is not listed and wish to direct Questions to either myself or M.B. we will be glad to try and answer your questions.
Now on to their second set I got some great updates by MarilynBardot :iconmarilynbardot so please read this before attempting to make your own set.
It will help you do it right the first time i know it seems wordy but trust that doing it right is worth the read and you can skip much of what is in the comment section since I moved it all to here.
so without further a due:
UPDATE. I have decided to make two new garments as the other two are six months old, but the main reason is that I am going to upscale them 15% so that they cover my knees and go higher up my torso. I am a bit mystified that the diagrams look absolutely perfect when seen on a PDF viewer but when they are printed out there are margins mainly at the top and bottom of each page so now:
LATEST UPDATE! Have finished constructing my latest half thickness foam (1.25cm or half inch) LegAffects with the upscaled diagrams. I made them almost 20% larger and the results are superb! The main garment padding now covers the knees nicely as it is supposed to, rises above the Iliac Crest (top pelvis bone) and wraps around my legs almost completely. So much better!!! I have just updated my Deviant ID with an example. I believe I now have a garment that is the size and shape that is intended. As such, I would urgently advise everyone who decides to make the LegAffects padding strategy to upscale them 20% (as I am quite slim!). For example the largest pad, "1", is around 60cm (23.5 inches) at its tallest. I would make it at about 72 cm (a bit over 28 inches) tall. All you do is print out the original diagrams and draw a bigger line around each one. Then cut out your new bigger ones. Its really easy and the result is very satisfying.
FAQ and Tips
Here are a few tips that I have found invaluable in making both my sets of the LegAffects garments. First of all, I fabricated a set with the full 2.5cm or 1 inch foam but I found it impossible to bend around my body to attach it to the leggings - more on that later... So then, from the experience of Sillytwitch, I decided to make a set from half that thickness which was much easier but still made several mistakes. Eventually, I managed to fabricate the full thickness garment after some time. However, due to errors in some of my strategies, I've had to re-glue both garments, and in fact, only finally did the full thickness one yesterday...
First of all, I think that both of these look incredible. I actually managed to track down Quarrla, the creator of the LegAffects concept, who has given me some valuable tips as well as lots of encouragement. The results of my efforts are on my Flickr page, many for public viewing, however, I have been compelled by Flickr to re-classify a fair few as moderate so you now need to have a Yahoo/Flickr account to view these ones unfortunately.
If I was you and interested in this, I would start off making the half thickness one. You will look sensational with gorgeous hips and curves, it is much more user friendly and you have more clothing options due to its relatively smaller size. Then, once you get into it and feel comfortable with it all, I would make the full size one to get that really spectacular gynoid body!!! I love them both!
I will say that it helps if you're relatively slim, but by no means prohibitive. A strategy that an inherently curvier person could use is to upscale the patterns a bit. Two other LegAffects wearers in Flickr who are on my favorites page, are somewhat more generously proportioned that me and they look stunning!
The main difficulty for me was wrapping the foam padding around my body. For the first time with both thicknesses I used rope to bind it around my torso and legs. This is a mistake for a couple of reasons. The first is that you won't really get the crucial hip ball and padding aligned properly on the leggings. Second, because you are compressing the foam with the rope, you will actually make the garment shorter than it should be and will be semi kinked in the middle so is a bit misshaped. It is actually quite amazing how the sticky the glue is as long as you have sprayed both the foam and the leggings generously.
When you have up to 15cm (6 inches) of foam it is really hard to bend!!! The secret is to get the foam used to being curved, so what I did with both sets of padding was to use the rope to bind it around my body so then pulled up a pair of leggings (non glued) encasing it and removing the rope and then left them in the wardrobe for a few weeks or so. Following this you will find them partially precurved and much easier to wrap around your body. Prior to application to the leggings you may have to re-glue parts of some of the layers back onto each other but that's easy. Then use lots of the spray glue during application.
My second error was to use nylon blended leggings to glue the garment onto. Quarrla clearly says cotton blend in the instructions which I failed to notice!! Consequently, the padding didn't stay stuck to the leggings for very long I'm afraid!!! Have now rectified that and no problems at all.
The next tip is when you are gluing them onto your leggings, don't panic!!! As long as you are calm and methodical you will do a perfect job! I had been putting off re-doing the large padding garment for weeks but finally bit the bullet yesterday and was amazed at how easy it was and well it went!!!
Just remember to carefully align the crucial hip ball against your hip and that the top of the padding should be a bit above the Iliac Fossa (upper hip bone). Special care to ensure the wrap around padding around the rear of the thighs covers the hip sock and wraps around the thigh from just below the buttock to the back of the knee. Make sure both sides are even with each other. Don't try to wrap it around your whole body and or legs. Unless you're really tiny or Superman its impossible. The LegAffects is designed to have the gaps in the abdomen, inner thighs and between the buttocks so when the compression regime is applied the compressed padding has somewhere to go.
WEARING AND PUTTING ON.
Its important when donning that you pull it up as high as it can go!! Ideally, above the Iliac Fossa. Don't worry. With the compression garments it will shrink a little bit. Next, make sure that the calf pads are hard up against the bottom of the main garment otherwise you'll get an ungainly gap! See my earlier pics on Flickr... You may have to do what I've had to and cover your knee with the calf pad (and I'm only 178cm or 5 foot 10 inches tall). Use the mandated "High Cut" compression panties, not the normal regular one. This makes a huge difference and allows a much more uniform curve for upper hip to knee. The next issue is the gaps in the garment, something that Quarrla has addressed in his instructions. He has recommended using Polyfil, but I'm nowhere near as capable (he's a sculptor) or as confident to do so as you could ruin the garment or make it worse! What I have recently been doing is simply using stuffing from a pillow to fill in the upper thigh, groin and abdominal gaps, but have now fashioned some "L" shaped mini foam pads out of the foam that I had left which eradicates the inner and upper thigh gaps, and use much less stuffing for the remainder. One of the penalties you pay for the compression is the loss of your big bum!!! So at the moment I'm using some 2.5cm thick oval shape foam butt pads I fashioned but intend to get some silicone ones soon...
Its all a bit of trial and error and takes time to get it perfect. It took Quarrla 10 years, mainly due to his exacting standards. See his superb results on the "Femillusion by Padding" videos on Youtube. It has taken me about 2 and a 1/2 months and I still don't get it right all the time...
All in all, though, its been a thoroughly wonderful experience for me both creatively and intellectually as well as fantastic fun so I commend it to anyone who may be interested.
One thing that I have had to do to ensure that my knees look fairly normal is to pull the calf pads up over my knees so there's no unsightly gap between them and the lower main garment. This is because the main garment for me is at least 2 or 3 cm above my knees. I hasten to add that I am of average height (178cmm or 5'10"). As such, due to this compromise, the bottom of my calf pads are inevitably halfway up my lower legs!!
You can clearly see from Quarrla's videos here: www.tudou.com/programs/view/B4…
and here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA36pX…
that his padding covers the front of his knees quite easily so I did some investigation! First thing I thought was perhaps the templates provided by Franchii-Manchii were too small. Then I looked at whether my printer was not printing them properly so printed them without the margins. There was no difference between the two so that wasn't it. Then I noticed something on one of the pages where Quarrla says that you may need to enlarge pad "1" which is the biggest and main pad, and/or pad "A", which is the main calf pad to fit.
I wasn't going to pull apart my whole garments after all my hard work, so what I have done is made new calf pads for both the full 2.5cm (1") and 1.25cm (1/2") thick foam garments that are a substantial 10cm (4") longer but not wider (unnecessary) than the templates and placed the inner pads further down the "A" pads to maintain the leg shape and correct proportions. I also didn't wrap them around the leggings as tightly as the previous pairs to allow them space for compression. Success!! Padding is more uniform and longer down my lower legs and thicker matching the magnificent curves of the upper garment. Will post latest pics on Flickr shortly.
The obvious question I want to ask Quarrla is how tall is he, but we haven't been in contact for a while lately so that will have to wait...
Until then, if I was fashioning a new set, I would consider making pad "1" at least 5 cm longer and maybe higher as well. In fact, maybe just upscale that whole pad say 10% when you print it out. That will give you more allowance for upper body, knee coverage, and maybe make it easier to wrap around and attach to the leggings when you glue it together. I would then also extend the "A" calf pads, but only 5cm or so.
Good luck, and I remain available for free consultation if you have any questions...
If you are making the half thickness (1.25cm, or half inch) foam garment, you should use only one rolled up sock each side for the crucial hip socket otherwise the natural curves will be grotesquely overwhelmed by this pointy lump sticking out the sides! I do think, though, that the hip socks are very important as they really help mold the foam out to give you those magnificent curves!!!
