- What is the shape of the bottom piece (pieces?)?
- Cartridge pleating?
- What keeps the bottoms pouffy? Tulle? Something else?
- How FIERCE could this look with a beautifully smooth beehive with miniature top-hat perched on the swell of hair instead of that dirty mermaid wig?
Oooooh! This is slightly more wearable- a vintage Lisa Cobb/Saks Fifth Avenue dress I found on Good Morning, Glouchester. I like the use of table-linen look fabrics paired with the lobster motif. Check out the blog post for detail shots. I’d be tempted to wipe my mouth on my collar.
As I dug around for other lobster dresses, I found a truly shocking volume of lobster-printed or embellished clothing. Is this a trend? How did I miss that? Are the women of America parading through the streets with these bright red creatures emblazoned across their bodies?
I found this strangely understated lobster tee on Etsy- check out Xenotees for several colors and sizes and sleeve types. The words in French translate to “I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don’t bark…”
Carry the baby around in a big pot on Halloween? Is this the kind of thing parents always find funny and the baby in question never does? Is it funny or tasteless? (If it’s tasteless, try more butter…)
No more lobsters for a little while, I’ve had my fill of hard-shelled whimsy for the time being. If you’re hanging out for more lobster-kitsch goodness, check out The Terrier and the Lobster.
Would you wear any of these clothes? Why are lobsters a “trend”? Is it a celebration of all that is ridiculous? Random chance? The collective unconscious?
(I’m nearly finished with a new “perfect shirt”, the TNT pattern I refined and balanced in another post.)
