On one of my trips to Hollywood (makes me sound like a star actress, I only wish!), I came across a situation where I wished I could have swapped places with someone. Along the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard, in front of the Chinese Theatre, various people do ‘cosplay’ efforts at famous movie people. This involves dressing up as real people (Monroe, unsurprisingly is popular), or cartoon characters (seen a few Snow Whites in my time), and very occasionally a full body costume one, and yes, it was one of those I wanted to switch with, someone dressed as Iron Man. And yes, to my inexpert eye, a pretty good outfit it was too. I remember it fondly, because it was the same trip that some tourist stopped me to have their photo taken with me, an absolute first. I have no idea who they thought I was, or was looking like, to this day.
But yes, something like Iron Man would appeal to me no end. Yes, its pretty much a robot look, and I suspect inside it, it feels like being in a robot suit too. I have ‘suggested’ for the Wizard of Oz showing in Blackpool next month, that dressing up as the ‘Tin Lady’ would appeal to me, but we will see if it happens?
So when a friend posted this earlier today, on one of the forums I go on
Lets just say that I wish they’d asked me to be the model wearing that suit! Fine, in truth, I’d rather wear a classy Metropolis robot suit (and more apt for a woman), but if offered the chance to wear that, I definitely wouldnt say no. So if anyone has a spare $3000 laying around, that they just want to throw away as a treat, for a disabled old lady…? No, I dont expect to get crushed in the rush!
OK, for those with expectations of an actual music video, here it is. Guess this is what I’d love to do with said ‘Iron Lady’ suit, lol?
