Spider dress, spider dress

Yeah, those legs move. It attacks you if you come too close (not kidding: that’s how she describes it in her bio).

It’s the work of Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht. She builds (looks liked 3D prints) these little machines into her dresses. Some respond to stimuli. It’s very clever.

One is even controlled by the brainwaves of the wearer – the video (first link) shows them pasting electrodes on a bald woman’s head.

Probably too delicate for practicality, but I can absolutely see some of these things turning up at a few celebrity do’s – before ending up in the movies.

Spider dress is just creepy, though.

Aliens already had their muse in H.R. Geiger, she’s too late but not too weird.

She could design outfits for “Emily In Paris” though.

I’m not sure of the wisdom of wearing something to which most people’s first response would be, “Burn it with fire!” – but to each their own, even if brief and ending in immolation.

Heh, just watched the video in the link.

Shall we now honestly discuss the resulting new rules for the time needed for women to get ready to go out wearing their new outfit, and where will their attendants be staying when they’re not preparing madam (or ‘sir’) to be wire harnessed for their appearances in public?

It seems my ‘Emily in Paris’ reference was apt.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
