Frumpy Girl? by LimeGreenSquid Frumpy Girl? by LimeGreenSquid
Wow, a clothed girl in my gallery! What's up with that?
Hehe, well, i had gotten some (what i find to be strange) comments over the last few months by people saying they were uncomfortable with nudity, and they wished the image they commented on was clothed, but they appreciated the message anyway.

So, here's a clothed girl, for those uncomfortable with the natural.

Plus i have a question.
When someone says a girl looks frumpy, this is the kinda girl i picture. Which i think is attractive. Do i have that right? Is this the definition of "Frumpy" or am i way off?

Anyway, arm hair on girls is sexy.
Do most girls shave their arms, or do they naturally tend to not have as much hair there? Anyhoo, i've always liked it, so yah.

This is not based on anyone in real life or celebrity (although for some reason her face reminds me of the character Cindy in Freaks and Geeks - just the same type of friendly smile), she's just random things i imagine when i hear the word "frumpy" - although i also picture a cardigan sweater, as well, but i wanted to have her shoulders bare.

Hehe, sweet. You must be pretty hot, then!

Hmm... I kinda see frumpy as a slimmer girl dressed in clothes that don't suit her figure. ...and not matching. xD We can't forget that.

I believe frumpy is based on clothing - clothes that are too big and baggy and shapeless for whomever is wearing them. Slimmer/skinny women can be just as easily's usually someone who's afraid of or uncomfortable with showing their form...or just don't know how to dress it! There are several reasons really, but it usually comes back to fear and insecurity. The definition of frumpy is broader (plain, dowdy, drab, old-fashioned, unattractive, unfashionable), but I think modernly it's used mostly the way I described it.

Ah! I have never personally met anyone with the... preferences you have. Living in Dutch land really helps out a gal like me... so skinny, so blonde. And this for the majority of my teen years. I miss diversity.

Hmmm, makes sense.
And aww. Gotta be some who appreciate real women! We just tend to be very shy, hehe.

No... no. In fact, you probably don't exist either. ;p
But seriously... not here. Though it really wouldn't matter. So...wooh.

hahah. I think that's me. ^_^ I'm always saying how frumpy I am, and my husband says "you're not frumpy" but if this girl is frumpy... then so am I!

love her!

Hehe, well, it's the idea i've always had in my own head about the word Frumpy (i think it came from Sally on Third Rock from the Sun) - but a lot of people don't agree with what my mind sees, hehe. This kinda frumpy girl i think is hot and sexy. But the main definition most people go by is not, unfortunately.

I use the word "frumpy" to mean *anything* lol.... it's such a great word. Especially when I am grouchy and kinda depressed, or just feeling stir crazy...feelin' frumpy, y'know? Before I decided it was a wonderful anything-word, i always thought of it as old-lady-ish, or overly feminine in a ruffly, floral, single old cat-lady kind of way.
This is a very cute drawing, I love her little curled toes! She definitely seems hippy, though. Mostly, the tattoo, low-cut top, bead necklace...cute CUTE!

Haha, cool!
And thanks on the curled toes, because i just wanted to try something different and people don't always stand still in perfect poses, right? hehe.
