Holographic pants and pattern mixing

My pants are not freaky, like they appear here. Or many other places (theoretically) in my blog that I was way too lazy to go and find. They're just a plain black and white pinstripe that choose to photograph as completely whackadoodle. This is also a bold move at pattern mixing for me: black and white knit cardi + flowery shirt + pinstriped pants = good (hopefully). Seeing as how I don't do pattern mixing, this is like the average fashionable person wearing saran wrap and ham as clothes. (I...don't know. I tried to think of something random, and it got really weird. Sorry.)

Incidentally, you want to see your face turn into the face of a freaky evil person? Take a photo of yourself and flip it in Photoshop or Microsoft Picture Manager (if you're cheapo like me). It is horrible and haunting. And for the rest of the day, I will be vaguely convinced that I look demonic. So I suggest doing it at the end of the day, so you can be horrified at home.

This picture flipped = evil face.

  1. Love the pattern mixing and the touch of pink you added. Much cuter than saran wrap and ham (which sounds like a budget version of the raw-meat dress Lady Gaga wore a while back ... )
    The holographic pants are kind of cool -- looks like you are entering a time warp! :)

    1. Thanks, sweetie. Although now I have "Time Warp" from Rocky Horror stuck in my head!

  2. Pinstripes--why do they do that?? I have a couple of pinstriped things that similarly confuse my poor camera, and I just don't understand.

    I can't find it right now (or maybe I'm too lazy), but have you seen that face-mirroring project that some artist did? Well, actually, probably several artists have done something like that, but anyway. Anyway, it the one I'm thinking of had to do with facial symmetry and, mirrored first the right side of a person's face, and then the left side. Oh, here, I found it:

    I'm going to play with the app myself, even if it's going to creep me out a lot.
