Wear or Die: Project Runway Edition

Project_runway
Project Runway is a great show, isn’t it? It’s always entertaining to see all that creativity being unleashed, and clearly these outfits are more about showcasing the creativity of their designers rather than creating clothes for real women to wear. In public.

What if you had to wear one of these outfits in public, though? What if it was either that, or death? Well, that’s the choice facing you this week, we’re afraid, readers. You must wear either Blayne and Stella’s “nude suit” with, er, embellishments, or Kenley and Wesley’s huge shouldered ensemble – or you must die.

So what’s it going to be?

    Well I’d wear Blayne’s, because I’m more about bondage than I am about tartan mickey mouse sleeves. And i wouldn’t have trouble walking through the average door.

    The shoulders – only so my shadow would look amazing – especially late afternoon on the beach, a long shadow with weird shoulders – nice.

    The tartan gigot sleeves, definitely. If they weren’t so enormous I might even like it.

    I’d wear the big sleeves. Though I wish they could have used something that matched even a little for the skirt. But that’s better than looking nekked.

    Haha! I just watched this episode not even two minutes ago.
    It’s a hard one, though… hm… I guess outfit no 1.
    I would look way, way, waaaay too funny in the big sleeves- one. Imagine it on a woman that’s 4,11 “tall”.
    Are you done laughing now?

    I have nothing against a good dominatrix outfit, but that’s a really crappy look for the bondage scene, so I guess I’d go with outfit #2.
    I’m really thinking I’d prefer to die, though.

    Death.
    Wait, maybe….
    Nope, definitely death.

    I’d have to go with the tartan monstrosity…I can’t imagine how one would WALK in the other one…it looks…uncomfortable. However, I would fill the puffed sleeves and skirt of outfit 2 with helium balloons and see if I could float away.

    #1, but only to dress-up day at a preschool.

    I think I’d look just as silly in either, so I don’t really care which one I’d end up wearing!

    Hmm, #2, because I think I could handle stares at my ludicrous outfit better than I could handle stares at my seemingly naked body.

    I’d wear number two, in hopes that I can suck my head into a sleeve like an ostrich.

    Definitely the shoulders. At least I would look avant-garde!

    Outfit 1. At least I would be able to get through doors without turning sideways one.
    Though the idea of wearing #2 and filling it with Helium Balloons is a good one…

    I’d have to say Kenley’s outfit over Blayne’s. At least with Kenley’s, I could attempt to somehow ‘deflate’ the sleeves and skirt (why do they have to be so clashy??), but I don’t think there’s anything I could do with Blayne’s outfit to not look ridiculous.

    Outfit 2
    I would rather look like a cracked out Minnie Mouse than a Vegas dominatrix in drag.
