ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The "Gold Metal Man Dress" by Etsy seller GeekyU1 is a pretty good stab at a C3PO frock. Made to order for $200.
Gold Metal Man Dress
I know it’s been done before but…
Those are definitely the droids I’m looking for!
Proceeds go to the “Red Haired Girl’s Leg Surgery Fund”.
It’s not even GOLD, fercrissakes!!! Are these people color-blind?
Agreed. It’s nowhere near the same color as C3P0. It looks full-on copper, less brassy-gold, which always seemed more C3P0′s look.
Red Gold is even an alloy of gold and copper, but this still doesn’t quite cut it – C3P0 dress my ass…
No matter how hard you try you can never make C-3PO stylish or sexy.
But since this dress looks nothing like C3PO, it works just fine.
Unless you exploit his resemblance to Maria from “Metropolis”.
Be careful with such pronouncements. As soon as you say this, someone Out There will order a C3P0 RealDoll ™, and you’ll feel eerily compelled to try it out.
She’s pretty damn sexy.
This would be WAY more controversial with ice cream condoms.
I’ll be in my bunk.
Not to be a spoil sport — I recognize that designing and producing a dress like this takes some serious skill — but it reminds me of the girl cookie monster costume.
The models’ poses are ridiculous. Why do even DIY designers insist on photographing their clothes on women who are standing in ways no sane woman would ever assume? Particularly out in public in front of what is probably a yarn store? And don’t say those poses showcase the clothes better because that is a very wrong answer. It just looks DUMB.
Maybe it’s like foot-binding.
