Wear or Die | Big Bird or Daffy Duck?

Wednesdays at TheFashionPolice.net mean Wear or Die: the game in which we choose two ugly outfits, and ask you to wear one… or die.

This week, although we know the Fall 2014 collections are currently being paraded at New York Fashion Week, we couldn’t resist going back to the (recent) past, to bring you these two little beauties:

wear or die

Option A is a Big Bird costume (complete with sexy thigh cut outs. Sesame Street was never like this in our day…) from Jeremy Scott’s current collection. Although it appeared on the runway, we haven’t actually seen this for sale anywhere, so it may never have actually made it into production. We can’t think why: seriously, who WOULDN’T want to walk around dressed like this?

Option B, meanwhile, is by The Blonds, and is from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, so you may well be able to buy this one soon. If you’re very unlucky, that is.

So, these are the two choices before you, Fashion Police Officers. Here’s a quick reminder of the rules:

How to Play Wear or Die

1. You must pick one of the two outfits above

2. You must assume you will be wearing it in public, and without attempting to conceal it in any way

3. You CAN make minor adjustments to the styling of the look, if it’s possible: i.e., you don’t HAVE to wear option 2 with the thigh boots and a small planet balanced on your head, but it would be fun if you would at least try, no?

4. If you don’t choose one of the two outfits, you die. BUT!

5. DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION. They’re just clothes, people. Ain’t no point dying over a pile of acid yellow faux fur, so you may as well just choose one and get it over with.

So, what’s it going to b? Which outfit would you choose if you HAD to wear one: Big Bird or Daffy?

    Option A would be sure to get some attention at a furry convention. If you don’t know what furries are, do NOT Google it.

    I choose number 1. It has several points “in its favor”. I could claim I found and killed a Yeti in the high mountains–that is at least as reasonable as the look itself and dressed this way, who would dare to disagree with you? Plus, I might get my 15 mins. of fame. It would cover ALL my figure flaws. No one would notice (much)my bad hair day. It would hide all my age spots. It would expose the only parts of my body I could possibly show. It looks like it has a train, so I could switch that and trip beautiful women in designer high heels just to get even. And last but not least, I could wrap every chic woman in a sexy LBD in a great big Yeti hug and get fur all over them! What’s not to like? : )

    Um, I’m gonna be different, and choose B, it looks more like Tweety than Daffy to me… and Tweety was my nickname for years. I’d probably wear it with either black or blue leggings underneath, and claim an eighties look (with my eccentric style, I could pull it off.) Option A reminds me too much of the Hallowe’en I wore a pink cat costume. Ugh.

    I’m for A, presuming I’m allowed to pick up the train. It looks more like Chewbacca with a gall bladder complaint to me than Big Bird, though. I’ll let my hair fall over my face even more than the model does, and hope nobody recognizes me.

    I guess B, because it doesn’t look as hot. But really all I can say to these two is LOL.

    I’d take option B because at least it accentuates your figure and would be just like wearing a leotard. That other one is a monstrosity.
