“Whenever One Door Closes, Another One Opens”

The results are in. I have learned that I am too old and cranky to model for a camera, not to mention changing outfits. Notice how these overalls make me look like I’m wearing jodhpurs. I look like a hippo. No matter how many times I am forced to whine that “I’m not fat in real life” god has decided to make me sound like a lying hippo.

Whosoever wants these overalls and wears a US 4 is welcome to them. They have little zips at the ankles, so being short might be a problem. Simply write a nice compliment about hippos and you win!

Here is what happened another time I tried to model.

Oh well. Next time I decide to model something, I will fucking well put on a girdle or truss or something.

On a brighter note, I just found out here that the FIT Museum is putting together an exhibit called “Dark Glamour”, devoted to the gothic in fashion. Thank you, Susan!   This is all the excuse I need to plan a trip to New York.

  1. AHHH it’s a bionic dog! Or else it has the light of god within it…shining out of its eyes.
    Sister Wolf, I think they’re too big for you. Because on the model, the front panel is must lower and the pant legs are like skinny jeans.
    You should run a haiku contest like Daddy Likely. Haha your comments will balloon to jodphur like proportions.

    She’s right — they’re too big for you.

  3. K-Line says:

    Honestly, I don’t think they look bad at all – but they may indeed be a little big…

  4. VJ says:

    My university’s mascot was a hippo. You are a lot nicer to look at than our hippo. If you still have the overalls and decide that this comment is worthy, I will take a picture of myself wearing them while riding the bronze statue of the hippo.

  5. enc says:

    That look is pretty cool, but if it makes you feel like you look like a hippo, then you are well right in offering them to the nearest hippo jokester.

    I like them on you.

  6. Sonja says:

    They look gorgeous if you ask me. I think you should just wear them.

  7. Sonja says:

    …and I’d like to know about those shoes you are wearing with the overalls.

  8. Suebob says:

    You are a perfectly tiny little thing. I was hoping to take you to dinner and feed you some deep fried cheese cubes or something.

    If you could add 14 to that size, I might just fit.

  9. Susan says:

    Okay, whose results are in? You have a very nice shape and you look good in those overalls/jodhpurs. And even better in the dress.

    If you’ve not tried out every possible combination yet, hows about a crisp white blouse under the overalls and a brightly colored belt and see if that works any better.

  10. Imelda Matt says:

    perfect! I’ve just had my bustle steamed and picked up my mourning veil from the dry cleaners. Shall I meet you in NY?

  11. Lindsey says:

    I think you look great in the outfit – you should keep it!

  12. Sister Wolf says:

    I can’t believe that you’re not just being nice, Lindsey and Sonja and Enc and Susan. But I appreciate your niceness!

    Miss Wombat, Toby Lynne amd K-line….maybe they are the wrong size. They certainly didn’t fit properly.

    Suebob: We will eat, asap

    Imelda: Let’s plan a date for NYC! I would love to see the exhibit with you.

  13. azumi says:

    You look great in the overalls! I kind of want them, but honestly, I think you should give them another try.

  14. Juri says:

    Now, I never complement hippos, I always tell them they’re fat, but I never say no to a pair of free overalls either. I think Copenhagen would be a happier place with me strutting around in them.

    With that said, you do NOT look anything resembling fat in either the overalls or the dress. I might want to present a deeper argument or two about the matter but have learned by now that the I-look-fat talk with women is something one does not want to engage in. There’s no way for a man to win in that debate.

    I think the dog could teach us a thing or two about posing and not giving a fuck about how we think we look in the pictures. Ever thought of selling him/her to consulting gigs?? There are dumber gurus around out there….

  15. Sister Wolf says:

    VJ – A friend emailed me first with her request to look like a hippo. I owe you one, okay?

    azumi, you are very sweet to reassure me.

    Juri, I see you are well-versed in the male-female dialogue. I like that about you. ANd you’re right, my dog is shameless!

  17. Sister Wolf says:

    Oh god, hoochiegucci, same to you!

  18. Mark says:

    That gray dress looks great on you. I’m serious. Maybe it needs a little tailoring, but it’s cool. You look good in gray. That said, can the overalls. Send them to the one who went to the college with the hippo mascot. I want to see the photo.

  19. Sister Wolf says:

    Mark, thank you, the grey dress is really nice. Take me somewhere good and I’ll wear it!
