I think Carrie Underwoods on to something. Her Grammy dress rocked. Her gown was made with material compatible with projection technology. So all during her performance, the patterns on her dress kept changing.
Im totally doing that. Im gonna take my parents old projection screen and have a short little sleeveless dress made. And then run Woody Allen movies on it all day long.
Might be a great way to get my kids attention stand in front of them while SpongeBob plays all over my dress. Surely that would make them stop and look at me when Im talking. A scene from Mommie Dearest might get their attention, too, but I dont want to scare them off. Ill need help with the zipper.
How good would I feel doing my errands while those great Jane Austen movies play all over my body. A little Sense and Sensibility at the grocery. Pride and Prejudice during all those car pools. So much better than just changing the GPS voice to a British accent.
And I havent been called for jury selection in a while, but how fun would it be to sit in the jury box while my dress played My Cousin Vinny. I think everyone would be psyched that I was there. They might even pick me, in hopes of catching some classics like To Kill A Mockingbird or 12 Angry Men.
Or I could just do what Carrie did project a different pattern every day. Id save a fortune in clothing costs. And everything would be a true original because itd be decoupage. Watercolor and graffiti. And pointillism so people have to back away to focus on me keeps them out of my personal space.
And Id really put those women who try to wow with a famous designer in their place when my little film frock displays a famous work of art. Dont tell me anyone else is going to be wearing Van Goghs Starry Night on girls night out. Or the Mona Lisa. I think da Vincis The Last Supper would be totally awesome, but no way all those disciples would fit.
Oscar Claude Monet to your Oscar de la Renta, I say.
Who are you wearing?
But really? I probably wouldnt be trying that hard. If I had a dress like that, Id just be driving around Charlotte watching The West Wing playing in my lap. But, if you cant text and drive, Im pretty sure you cant watch Bravo marathons.
Besides, I bet that projection material gets really hot.
