Some things are better left buried...

I'm doing my eBay ninja magic routine, looking for a particular 80s-ish style of gown that I can modify for a costume idea. Haven't found anything yet, but I've stumbled across fashion psychoticness that I was comfortable having forgotten. Now I want to gouge my eyes out with a hair pick and slit my throat with a snap bracelet.

I could see this being used for a costume as some kind of Disney character perhaps, but someone actually designed and created this seriously. "Yes, someone out there wants to walk down the aisle looking like the love child of Scarlett O'Hara and Cthulhu! YES!"

Holy crap, I used to have this dress! I wore it in "The Dancing Princesses" put on by my children's theater group when I was about SIX. I can't believe they made it in adult sizes.

You are guaranteed to spontaneously menstruate within 30 seconds of putting on this dress. Even if you're male.

Um... wow. Yeah, the she-fro on the mannequin doesn't help the image, but I think that's something even Jem and the Holograms would have rejected for being "too tacky".

You too can look like a fundamentalist zucchini! (I realize that description makes little sense, but it's precisely what leaps to mind for some reason.)

I hope the bridesmaids took the bride out back after the ceremony and kicked her ass for making them wear this...
