    The Fourth Law of Robotics: flares are fabulous.

    Later series re-issue laughs at your puny 70’s fonts. Is that his butt?

    The first experiment to turn IMAX film into clothing succeeded, but at a terrible price.

    Her ring is too big. She can’t close her fingers.

    Not sure why she’s looking all Smirky McSmug and all (Tag). She seems unaware that her experiment is doomed to failure since she’s given the boy two left hands.

    So often we scoff at our forebears’ ideas of future garb, and wipe our collective brows with relief at the fashion particle weapon beam we dodged, but I for one would wear the hell out of that jumpsuit.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Lillie Awesome—Even down to the matching green shoes? You are one bold fashionista!!

  10. Anna T. Says:

    She’s forgotten her surgical gloves. And she really ought to be wearing closer-fitting sleeves for sanitary reasons.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I can’t find anything to corroborate my belief, but I’m almost positive that her outfit made an appearance in a 90s dance rhythm game.

    That’s the Getaway

    Uh-huh uh-huh

    I like it.

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    She’s seems a little sheepish; hiding what she installed in the middle there.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @JP—Whatever it is, I’ll bet it’s leftie.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    She only dresses like a reputable dentist.

    What’s the sell-by date on a book with a shuriken of approval that screams “NEW”?

    @DSWBT – Dental Hygienist: Breaking Bad

    A reputable looking dental hygienist turns to a life of crime and corners the nitrous oxide market in order to meet her daughter’s college tuition payments.

    These are pretty good pulpy spy books, but the covers! All terrible. I actually bought the last couple of them in ebook so as not to have any of the covers. Less is more.

    If you judged a book by its cover, you’d think Getaway World was an entire planet of murder discos. Or disco murderers.

    Which, um… okay, yeah, but not the disco part!

    @Lillie: I personally don’t care for hoods, but I too would wear that in appropriate circumstances. I like that the shoes are flats, because when you’ve got bell bottom flares with that much flair, you don’t want high heels. Girlfriend knows she looks fierce and fabulous, no need for heels. And if you’re on a murder planet (either committing or escaping), sensible shoes are a good idea.

    It’s refreshing to see a lady on a sci-fi cover in flats. Even or perhaps especially when she’s wearing something from the Halston Studio 54 collection. Bianca Jagger should have looked so good.

    Mr. S. J. Gumby, after the successful operation.

    In the future, bell bottoms migrate to the sleeves, I see.
