One Flew Over The Hand-Beaded Couture Cuckoos Nest.
A multi-room mental hospital, with white padded walls and hanging headless mannequins.
Time ticked away under the flickering hanging light bulbs; each time the creepy music loop would end, show goers clapped, hoping it would bring on the start. All it brought was their own 45-minute descent into insanity.
So keep them sweet:
White M&M’s served in tiny plastic cups like pills in a hospital.
Two feathered birds perched on the edge of a bodice, rubber wings with lace appliqué and undulating barnacles growing out from dresses.
Acrylic fingernails glued to the ends of elbow-length rubber gloves, and electroshock hair tucked neatly into hairnets dotted with pearls.
Bjork's Oh So Quiet, shhh shhh.
Walk the walk:
Models hobbled with glazed looks of contrition in restrictive bodices and skirts.
