Guest Post: Would you wear… UpFactory’s veins and arteries stockings?

Vein-tights

 This guest post was submitted by Deka of That's Hideous!. Deka writes…

I enjoy fun, colorful stockings and leggings as a way to add character to an ensemble. But, who knows what type of fashionista UpFactory had in mind when creating these anatomically-inspired stockings. I have a hard time picturing them being worn outside of a Halloween celebration. If these stockings tickle your fancy, they are available here for 41€.

    It’s hideous and yet genius at the same time. These stockings would definitely be a great part of a Halloween ensemble.

    The moment I saw these I thought of varicose veins. Not exactly something ladies like to show off. I do have to agree they would be great for a Halloween costume.

    That’s a great idea, Lauren! I should alert my old biology teacher to them.

    From a distance, and at first glance, I thought they were some kind of tree/leaf pattern… So I think maybe they could look cool, but I agree they should PROBABLY be saved for Halloween.

    oh man, it’s sick, or maybe only the bio teacher or docter would take it a great sample to do some research, Lauren gave a precise position.

    Umm… I don’t even like to display my own – and I will put on tights that show even more? No thank you!

    I would so wear that. These can actually be pulled off pretty well and look pretty fun.
    Except I hate pantyhose in general.
    Oh well.

    I would definitely wear these! They’d go awesome with a retro black dress and pumps

    Yes, if I would being paid obscene amounts of money to do a monster movie or vampire video shoot. Otherwise, hell no.

    I want them! I’d definetely get them for 10 Euro, but probably not the actual price.
    Wearing them would be a religious experience for all the junkies at the clubs.
