I can’t wear those to work. And, yeah, holy hell are some of these dresses expensive. Almost $900 for a dress is crazypants.
I think they’re largely meant for cosplay/costuming/nice outings, etc. They are handmade to order, and look like they are made with top-quality stuff, so I surely understand why they are so expensive. If I had one, I’d FIND times to wear it… out for drinks? Out comes the 4th doctor dress! My problem with some of the stuff that Thinkgeek sells is that they aren’t always great quality stuff.
I do have to say, her dress version makes the Colin Baker outfit bearable to look at.
[ETA] As someone who wants to teach college, I think I could pull off the 4th Doctor outfit for teaching or presenting at conferences.
Those are fucking cute as hell. Alas, i’m a guy ]:
Yeah, the cosplay aspect is in all the descriptions. And thinkgeek is definitely not always very high quality. I bought the Startrek dress below, and it fit really damned weird. I ended up cutting off the tank portion, and made a skirt out of it. Works better that way.
I will say this for the skirt I ended up with: it has pockets!
An omission that is indicative of the systematic ignorance the fashion industry shows towards women´s demands.
That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, women would be having trouble with the simplest things, like finding dresses with functional pockets.
If only they were allowed to wear pants.
I’m fond of wearing men’s hoodies as my ‘top layer*’, because they are generally more durable and well constructed, overall. If I wear a midriff hoodie as my ‘middle layer,’ I can’t help but notice that the respective zippers are placed on opposing sides.
*Where I live, wearing layered clothes isn’t just ‘a thing’, it’s a necessity.
Why do I have to wear pants to get pockets.
Also, lots of women’s pants don’t have pockets either.
Looks fine when you click on it but yeah the preview is jacked
Normally that resets in a few minutes, but it has not. click-or-two-for-real-size has correct ratios, though.
UPDATE: now it’s fixed itself! Thanks, @system!
#HOW IS THAT EVEN STEAMPUNK
Per Jeff, that happens when any image is “too tall.”
Long vertical panels like that have to be minimized before posting in order for the whole thing to show up.
But it was apt; very much worth the right click.
*lolz @ ‘tit-holes.’
So damn true.
It just needs about 10lbs worth of rivets, gears, buckles and brass
Um… steampunk is often victorian themed? That’s victorian style…?
WHO CARES IT’S A BETTLEGUISE VICTORIAN DRESS!!! DON’T RUIN MY DREAMS WITH YOUR CATEGORIES, OKAY!!!
See my reply to @OtherMichael, AKA killer of dreams.
Yeah the listing is just trying to pull in people that like steampunk but really it’s just Victorian styled.
