I need to do this again!

It’s almost a week since I was last at Corp and I enjoyed it so much I feel like going again.

Perhaps not wearing the PVC suit though, although it was extremely awesome and definitely a talking point.

Yes, I’m something else.

Last night the PVC suit got it’s full public airing, first at the Devonshire Cat and then at Corporation.

The responses to it were amazing. Loads of people wanted to talk to me about it, and quite a few people tried the jacket on.

Lifestyle change is the key.

I’m hardly the perfect advocate, but you know when you see those photos online of before and after? Well these are mine.

It’s just over 12 months since I began my lifestyle change from an unhealthy fat potato with plantar fascitis & knee pain to become what you see on the right.

It was the photo shoot for the covers band on the left which horrified me. I looked disgusting! I was enormous and in an ill fitting suit which at the time I actually thought looked quite good.

Now I can shop at normal shops, delve into the middle of the rack, and when I see something really unusual like the PVC suit from ASOS I can actually buy it off the peg.

It’s not a diet that did this; it’s a lifestyle change. Less food, more exercise. For me it’s about the high fat foods. I now have them as occasional treats and only then as a small portion.

This photo was the shoot taken with my folk band a few weeks ago. The transformation is unbelievable!

Rocking it!

I finally got to take a few photos of the new PVC suit today. It looks stunning!

What amazes me though is that this is actually for sale on ASOS website right now, for you to buy.

Is PVC making it more mainstream? I’d like to think so.

PVC suit inspiration.

I’ve wanted a PVC formal suit for many many years. My inspiration was this rather horrible 1997 film, Bombshell. Frank Whaley plays the antagonist who for the latter half of the film is in PVC. It’s not a good fit, to be fair, but I became inspired.

To be fair, this movie is a bit of a shiny fest!

It’s terrible though. The acting is wooden, the plot is shambolic, and the general feel of it is cheap.
