So for my final costume piece for Dragon*Con, all I needed was a pair of striped tights. Striking out at the mall, I turned to ebay, and snagged a nice black and brown pair for about $10.
They arrived in the mail today, and I excitedly ripped opened the package and unrolled the contents.
Guys, these suckers are as tall as my shoulders, UNSTRETCHED.
I know I'm short, but I've yet to meet a woman whose pelvis is eye-level with me. So I ask you: WHAT. THE. HECK??
Also, what's with this crappy "one size fits all" thing in the world of hosiery, anyway? Every cool pair of tights out there (Sock Dreams, I'm looking at you) is one size. ONE SIZE. Since I'm five foot tall, that means knee socks are thigh highs, thigh highs are nipple-highs, and tights can keep my neck warm - while I'm wearing them.
THESE tights, however, take the proverbial cake for sheer insanity. (Heh. "Sheer.")
Ok, rant's over.
'Scuse me while I go find the scissors...
