Cat Print Tights, Calgary Taboo Show

November 26, 2015 under Weird

I saw this girl at the Taboo Show and she even agreed to pose for me a little. She was one of the workers there, greeting the public. Cat tights always make me smile!

Curious incident at American Border

October 3, 2014 under Weird

One time I went to ship a bunch of packages out of WA state. I brought my declaration forms to the guards and one of them asked me – “Stockings… are those socks?”. I told him that it’s not socks, it’s thigh high hosiery. He was confused.

A female guard looked over and told him – “That’s the stuff that strippers wear!”.

All the sudden it all became clear to that male guard and he smiled.

I just kept my mouth shut, didn’t say anything since I didn’t want to argue with the guards.

How would you explain to someone like that what stockings are?

Stay up and Shorts – ever appropriate?

September 3, 2014 under Weird

Wolford stay up stockings with Rudsak tall boots and shortsI bet this is probably the most weird post you’ve seen from me so far. Today I decided to take photos of these boots for eBay and put on my stay up stockings together with my jean shorts. After I looked at myself, I realized that it actually looks pretty neat.

Considering that the welt of the stocking is just a straight line without any lace, do you think this could actually be appropriate on the street? I am curious to hear your opinion.

These are stay up stockings by Wolford called Eyla. They are limited edition. The boots are by Rudsak, quite old though, but still in fashion.

Ukraine: Scandalous Graduation Outfit

July 16, 2014 under Weird, What to Avoid

Pavlograd Ukraine What you see here happened for real. This is a teenager, 17-year-old Anastasia Fomenko, at her high school graduation. She wore a lace dress and stockings, shocking her whole school.

However, her parents thought this was quite OK and were present at the occasion. This paid off in a sense, the girl got famous instantly and was invited to a bunch of talk shows.

Fancy Lady on a Motorcycle in Vancouver

April 13, 2014 under Weird

I saw this woman on the road and asked my guy to drive behind her so I could take a photo. She was wearing fancy pantyhose and fashionable boots. What a rare sight.

Crystal Renn in Pantyhose and Stockings

February 15, 2014 under Photoshoots, Weird

Perhaps this model grabs my attention for the only reason that she poses in pantyhose and stockings. Otherwise, I find her quite unbalanced in her looks and in her ways.

Crystal Renn used to be a skinny model with eating disorders, then she wanted to get healthy and gained enough weight to be plus size. Later she went back to being skinny again. Now she is somewhere in between.

She did a provocative domatrix fetish-oriented photoshoot in Falke pantyhose. Pantyhose part attracts me, violence – not at all.

Melting Tights from Germany by URB brand

August 18, 2013 under Weird

by Helene, Belarus

A few days ago my friend shared with me this link and her excitement about this new kind of melting tights. Well, I was excited too and even was thinking of how to get a pair of them for myself. But luckily I had a long journey and enough time to think about it.

CAN I WEAR IT ON THE STREET?

OK, let us suppose I will buy such tights. But what after that? Where shall I wear them? Maybe I will be able to wear them for some extraordinary party or event, which usually takes place once in a blue moon.

If I wear them outside instead of normal tights I will attract everyone’s attention.  Maybe I’ll get comments from people.  But the biggest fun it would be if I put them on in autumn, when it rains all time, and let people wonder what’s going on.

SAME EFFECT WITH TANNING CREAM – ALMOST!

This reminds me of a story which my friend told me. She was trying to get some tan and used special cream for that. That was supposed to be of a good quality and she really believed in it till once she got caught in rain. This cream reacted with rain water and formed a thick layer of foam flowing down her legs! Could you imagine how embarrassed she was walking outside?

HOLES AND RUNS DEBATE

Some of these designs combine the paint with the holes and runs.  In my opinion those holes just make tights look awful. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but then why do majority of women throw away tights when they are torn?  Some people may continue wearing it with the same pride as if it were designer clothes and even think of it as sexy. Anyway it is up to one’s taste, but I can’t stand any kind of holes or runs in my tights.  Holes in tights are not a new invention, so let us turn back to paint flows on these melting tights.

SOME WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF ATTENTION

Well, one evident advantage is that people will turn their attention to tights rather than to legs, that is why this attire is the best choice for those whose legs are far from perfect. It is summer now and many girls and women try to beautify themselves by wearing the most incredible things. Short skirts and dresses when legs are far from perfect, massive rings when fingers are swollen from heat, thick make-up flowing from heat and sweat, so those tights can complete the image. Flowing make-up and flowing paint will be a perfect combination.

CAN MEN WEAR IT?

With women taking on professions that were traditionally performed by males, it’s not a surprise that men wouldn’t borrow anything from women.  So logically – why not men then wearing tights?  Then they also shall not forget about dresses and skirts. URB brand came out with melting tights for both genders.

MAYBE A TREND FOR TEENAGERS?

These tights can be really good for teenagers who like to be different and stand out from crowd. Shorts or short skirt, bright running shoes or comfortable shoes, bright top – and the teenager-girl will look wonderful. All suits them if chosen with taste.

But I don’t think it’s OK for those who aren’t in their teenage years anymore. Of course adult women will attract much attention when they try to put on such tights, but this will be not the kind of attention they are looking for. If you are not a teenager anymore, not a model or a TV-star, then better avoid such thing.

IN MY FASHIONABLE CONCLUSION

Such tights is quite good and innovative idea, everything has a right to exist. And we choose carefully where it’s appropriate and where it isn’t.

I come to a conclusion that even though it can be fun, but when it comes to daily wear this style is not for me. So I will wait until I become a celebrity TV host or a famous sci-fi movie actress and then I can go ahead and make a hell of a fashion statement!

Horse in Nylon Socks – What For?

August 15, 2013 under Weird
hosiery, pantyhose, nylon, horse, legs, protection, healing, flies, fly, bugs, insects

This horse is wearing nylon socks for a very practical reason.

You may see this horse in nylon socks and wonder if this is a prank. Or, is this an attempt to start a new “trend” like those poor canines in Asia wearing pantyhose because of some immature teen’s experiment?

No!  Not at all.

Turns out that this is actually a method to keep the flies off the healing wounds on horse’s legs.  For whatever reason this animal has abrasions or something of this sort on the lower legs and needs to keep it infection-free.

If you own a horse, keep this in mind and don’t throw out your old torn pantyhose.  You may need it to protect your horse’s skin from the bugs.

Pantyhose Marketing Move – Package with Crime Scenes

August 3, 2013 under Weird

A  hosiery brand called Walk Socks decided to try a new catchy packaging theme as a pantyhose marketing tool – crime scenes!  How do you like that for an attention grabber?

Men find it so amusing that they can’t resist to buy it for their girlfriend.  It’s just too extraordinary to pass.  I applaud Walk Socks for such a smart pantyhose marketing move!

On the other note though I wonder why the brand is no longer around.  At least I was not able to find anything about it online.  Could it be that such a shock factor somehow was just too much for the public?

10 Den Graffiti pantyhose by Walk Socks

On another note, in Russia in 1969 there was a serial killer, Yuri Tsuman, who would only target women in black pantyhose.  He would take off all the clothes from the victim, except pantyhose.  Actually he would demand to take off everything and then only put on pantyhose and that’s it.  Women were afraid to wear dark pantyhose on the street at night.  He killed 5 women and then got caught, being granted a lifetime in prison.
