News, but not the serious kind

I love what you’ve done to your hair

Okay fashion show staff, we’re still looking for ways to save money on these shows, and we think we’ve found a good way to curb the soaring cost of hair stylists.

BRAZIL/There is a group of folks who will work cheap, they are eager to learn and they have lots of time on their hands.

Of course I’m talking about the criminally insane. Now that they’re being allowed to design fashions, why shouldn’t they work on hair, too?

They deserve a shot – oops, poor choice of words.

To try it out, we’ve borrowed a guy from a maximum security prison. He’s looking to learn a trade he can use when he gets out in, um, 418 years.

Lamar, take the gentleman backstage and tell him to take a stab at Kelli. No, wait! Don’t put it like that!

M, you an inmate of which faculty again?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

I meant facility*… my bad!

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

I was going to ask what M is a Professor of. Faculty…facility…aren’t they pretty much the same thing?



Posted by egeria | Report as abusive

E, yes, very much… At least last time I looked.

And, Shra, I really can’t tell. I’ve been moved so many times these past few years it get fuzzy in my head. What I do know is I have been informed I’ll be transferring into Curabilis, at Champ-Dollon, whenever it is finished. Either that or Grendon…

Or was it I was getting an appointment at the GIIDS? Sorry, it does get a bit hazy in the afternoons!

In an attempt to save money, fashion designers opted for wigs made of previously digested cat hairballs…

I can’t wait until they start letting the criminally insane design footwear – I can see it now – combat boots with stiletto heels (literally!)

That middle one’s impressive. Not pleasant, but definitely impressive. Superglue you think ?

You could be right, CrowGirl, but my guess is a transistorized static electricity machine powered by a small battery pack strapped to her back.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Ooh, I could use one of those…

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Oh hey sorry I am late getting to this… I had to fly some model to a fashion show in my open-cockpit airplane.

Hey look there she is!!

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Unca, let the poor man dream at least! :P
And why no stilleto combat boots… If they are designed the way I imagine them, they would quite sexy… thanks for the idea BethyB!

And while you are all admiring Miss Wings transistorised static electric hair, check out her arms… ;)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

What arms? Do you mean those wiry things that hand from her sides? The ones flesh-coloured or the other ones?

In any case, I much prefer Ms. Rhino on the third -er, turd? picture. I hope she doesn’t hit the door or any other object while wearing that hairstyle; otherwise, she would probably be nailed stuck!

M, now hat you mention it, I am sure I thought her hair looked like doggy poo…

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Hairy shoes, with lots of curves … so hard to be a designer! Oops, sorry, wrong nightmare.
