If only this were a joke

I just logged in to xstreet to add some inventory, and was confronted by this on page one. Are there really people in SL who think that this is an attractive look? Seriously. Does a person just wake up one day thinking, "I know! I want to look like a drunken skank who forgot to pull up her pants after visiting the loo!" What's next? Bikini tops with one boob hanging out? Wait, don't answer that. I don't want to know.

Not only that, but it ended up being featured on the first screen of xstreet. Who thought *that* was a good idea?

I have NO idea. I wonder if the featured items are random or managed. There's usually some weird thing there. I'm guessing that we are so secluded in our historical/Steampunk ghetto that we only see a fraction of the surreality of SL.

The problem seems to be some sort of fashion arms race from what I have seen evolving - everyone has to show a bit more and a bit more until there is very little left. So turtleneck sweaters have boobs hanging out the bottom and jeans are tow torn legs and panties if we are fotunate. But a lot of the fashions I see at the grocery on MUCH less attractive shapes are nearly as bad :) Even if they do not care the message these clothes give, one does wonder who thinks these are flattering?

You want true horror? There's a web site called, I think, "People of Wal Mart". It appears to be photos of frighteningly dressed people (mostly in the deep south lower 48). I went to it once and felt like I was looking at footage beamed back from planet nutbar.

I've seen some people wearing something similar (though not *quite* so low-cut) as I bounced around on a couple of hunts. The thing that intrigued me with those outfits was that sculpt additions to show the front fly hanging open...

Sculpty fly? Wow.
