Venusian Fashion?

Venusian Fashion?

As a counterpoint to yesterday's photo, I was reminded of this display across town in the Greenwood neighborhood. This is the storefront of Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co., a supposed space travel outfitter (to see the whole storefront click my More Seattle Stuff page). In reality it is a front for a very successful writing workshop program for students called 826 Seattle, (started at 826 Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District). One of my neighbors is on staff there, and its a wonderfully creative community resource that people can volunteer with. But really, doesn't this manikin look fabulous in her flame retardant quilted gown and sun flare goggles? Perhaps she knows Mr. NASA. :-)

It looks like she's wearing a giant potholder!

Yes, well, I've heard the women from Venus are too hot to handle. . .
ba dum bump! Sorry, Piobaireachd; I couldn't resist!

Though...wouldn't her arms be a tad too exposed for that? Just wondering...

Anyway, wow. What a fantastic idea for a window display! Very unique.

Becky, perhaps this is an outfit for her vacation to the dark side of Venus? :-)

Note the binary code on the window. Probably spelling out what Kim wrote above about her being too hot to handle... ;-)

I love reading the comments...then I often see things I initially missed in a photo.

I kinda like it. But does it come in size 16?
