Hey, gorgeous, got a light?

February 27, 2007

They call it the “city of lights,” and we saw a whole line of new creations at a Paris fashion show yesterday in which the models wore their own elaborate light fixtures. Why didn’t somebody think of this sooner? If you’re a chick who likes to be in the spotlight, take the spotlight with you!

There are a few minor, minor problems to be worked out:

  • flop sweat from the intense heat can be a problem if you tend to wear an outfit for longer than four minutes.
  • second degree skin burns – carry plenty of extra makeup and something to disguise that gross sizzling sound
  • small aircraft have attempted to land on several models wearing these dresses
  • extension cords are difficult to accessorize
  • okay, a few unfortunate “incidents” have been reported at beach parties

What can I say? The Med Center wouldn’t deliver IV bottles and these were handy.

Somebody decided to “come out of the closet” so passionate, that she forgot to leave the hanger inside.

 

The good news:1) Innovative design prevents auto tacking2) Running lights visible for 22 miles;3) Rotors (not shown) deploy in seconds, permitting quick aerial getaway4) Easy-to-conceal battery pack included at no extra charge

 

And where do you suppose she hides that power supply ???

Dan, I can see you have a excellent taste. What is it going to take to get you into this dress?

 

High fasion that doubles as a hang glider!

 

The fashion designers are trying experimenting new ideas but that wont get acclaim in real world.

 

Excited about her new fasionable purchase, Susan failed to realise the impact the outfit would have on her ability to Exit the room. Once outside, she was sadly struck by lightning.
