Cool Or Creepy?

Scott and I lead a busy life. Not so busy that we aren’t on the lookout for ways to be more fashionable and awesome.

Although the skin suit makes me think of the first season of American Horror Story, and while I survived with my bodyguard, I have never been able to watch another season because I heard each season is worse. HOW CAN ANYTHING GET WORSE?

I also discovered and now need (yes I said need) a fox hoodie.

Plus, these are from a COSPLAY website, and after watching a documentary on cosplay, I’ve become obsessively intrigued.

But then I remembered this weird video, and it ruined my fox hoodie aspirations.

Basically, everything cool is ruined by everything creepy.

PS. You may be tempted to argue that a skin suit could ever be cool, until you realize that every superhero is basically wearing one and almost every all-in practical joke needs one. THINK BIG, PEOPLE.

PPS. If you type “cool or creepy” into Google images, you will see a lot of pictures of Google glasses and a lot of stuff that will keep you up at night.

She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. This answers the question of what those two people in Chipotle this past Sunday were wearing: red skin suits. My youngest was terrified, my oldest couldn’t figure out where their eyes went and my husband and I were really, really confused about how they were going to eat their burritos. I didn’t know skin suits were a thing.

  2. Some kids were wearing those last year while skating. My son cried on the ice because they were creepy as hell.
    That video kills me. Who thinks of shit like that?
    Is fox the new zombie?

    1. Fox should be the new zombie. I actually read that the band who made that video meant it as a joke and are kinda bummed that people like it. I want to point to me and my son, as people who don’t like it, just to make them feel better.
