It’s Always After Six in the Afterlife

with one comment

I won’t bother you with the details of the search terms that led me to this daring 1960s or 1970s ‘After Six’ velour tuxedo on etsy. Sure, $88 seems a bit steep, but you’ll never need another tux. You could even be buried in this┬ástriking ensemble, virtually guaranteeing that your reanimated zombie corpse will pass for the living. Click on the images below to see the seller’s listing.

Bride of Peacock

with 4 comments

Some questions. First, what the hell is going on here? Second, why would you spend nearly $8k on a wedding gown and then let a giant peacock sit on your lap? Third, is she marrying the bird? Fourth, is it a stuffed peacock worn as an accessory, like a brooch?

Also, that hair. No. Just no. No to everything here.

A Little Biased

leave a comment »

This would be an amazing wedding gown for the bride who wants a glamorous vintage look. And even more stunning is the current bid on eBay; only $56. The auction ends in two days. This is an original 1930s bias cut silk gown with train. The open back is incredible and this cut splendidly whittles the waist. Click on the images below to see the full listing.
