Jennifer (of the outstanding Naughty secretary Club) sent me the link to this dress, which is by her sibling hope (of hot Pink Pistol).
It’s hand-painted, obviously, although I would like, for a moment, to entertain the concept of a world where the picture of Purple Rain-era prince is omnipresent as well as heavily marketed, kind of like all those Che Guevara t-shirts.
It’s such a short leap, isn’t it, from discovering a purple satin gown to believing “I ought to paint prince on this dress! That would be awesome!”
And lo, it is awesome.
If I had this dress, I wouldn’t wear it … I’d put it on a mannequin as well as keep in my living space (or, if my other half objected, the bedroom, or, if he truly objected, my office) because, as a work of art, it would make me pleased every day.
Even much better would be to have one of those recordable greeting-card noise chips stuck inside it, hooked to a movement sensor, as well as then, if people got as well close to it, BOOM! Purple rain would play. (The truly climax-y “I only wanna see you” part, naturally.)
I believe paintings on gowns are the new dogs playing poker. Ever-so-slightly cheesy, however joyful in a method that you can’t truly explain.
Whether you’d screen this, wear this or just admire from a (very long) distance (I admit no other options), be sure to inspect out the link to Hope’s other stuff — the David-Bowie-in-Labryinth-dress is similarly fantastic, if somewhat scarier. (Bowie was frightening in that movie, was he not? Sure, half of it was the understood fear-inducing high quality of spandex, however still …)
