ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Wow, they’re both really cool and a terrible nightmare. Quite an achievement.
Or wear one on your head to look like the H-bomb worshipers from “Beneath the Planet of the Apes.”
I believe I need a unicorn chaser.
Reminds me of when my goth friends took anatomy and went to town on on their arms and legs with red and blue eyeliner pencils.
Definitely NOT anonymous, but don’t understand how to sign in!
American comedienne Joan Rivers used to say that she wanted tattoos on her legs to match her varicose veins. Now I understand what she means. I think I could pattern a FABULOUS Chinese dragon from hips to ankles!
My aunt Lillian used to call her legs THE ROADMAPS. Red lines were superhighways, blue lines just orginary byways.
Don’t worry, youngsters. As long as they don’t hurt, you’ll be fine. Today is my 70th birthday, and if varicose veins ever come back into style, I’m there.
huh? sure, knock yerself out
problem is, this means you have to put them on without twisting them…damn near impossible for many of us!
has anybody found a way to get these shipped to the us?
(this is a perfect gift for a certain fashionista gf)
Those aren’t stockings; they’re pantyhose.
Stockings are single leg coverings supplied in pairs. They’re healthier, classier, and sexier.
perhaps a cellulite body suit replete with veins,sags ,folds and questionable appendages plus a matching godzilla head……Cool Stage wear! for female goth rockers
So I guess I’m the only one who thinks this is kind of hot, in a twisted way? Or the only one who will admit it.
Bones would be much better, of course. :)
In the same vein (*boooooiiinnng*), here’s a body suit designed by Katy Perry for H&M’s Fashion Against AIDS campagne, currently online @ http://www.hm.com:
Interesting idea, but paying good money for something that I can do already just by putting on a pair of shorts doesn’t appeal.
And theirs aren’t even 3D like mine are…
My only problem with these is that they aren’t accurate. What a missed opportunity.
Saw these by Portuguese artist Patricia Guerreiro in Lisbon a few years ago… :)
i want a pair!!!! :D
and im a guy XDXDXD
That would be “41.00 â‚¬” in English-speaking places. Otherwise those are very expensive stockings.
Those are beautiful hose. Now all we need is the Frida Kahlo nylon bodysuit with trolly tracks up the torso…
Reminds me of how people looked in Scanners just before their head exploded – except a little lower.
How lucky I am that the internet has proven Rule 34 beyond a reasonable doubt and this sort of thing fails to surprise me any more, and by “lucky” I mean “irreparably scarred”.
reminds me of Slim Goodbody.
SAMSAM @1, Yes, but UpFactory is a French site.
Pffft. . . just wait until you’re older, ladies. . . they’ll look like that all the time, with hosiery or without.
Slim Goodbody – from Captain Kangaroo?
Why? Why … oh, God, why?
So if you look like that naturally is it cool?
Those just scream “Come hither.” In Mescaline.
I will make a pair of these for you ladies. Mine only cost 40,000â‚¬ plus expenses (2 coloured markers). http://www.deadhookerchic.com
I had a teacher who looked like this. Didn’t need any special hose though.
