Sunday was a nice relaxing day for me. I decided to go to Starbucks, because I wanted a change in the coffee shop scenery. And you know me. I looove me some people watching.
But I didn't expect this. Not at all.
I'm sitting here, typing on my laptop and sipping in a macchiato, when a dude walks in. He sits down, opens up a newspaper, and just starts chillin.
How is that blog-worthy?
He was wearing one of these...
He scared the living bejeezus out of the baristas when they finally noticed him. After a few seconds of awkward conversation his friends walk in.
All in all, there were about 7 people (men and women) in morphsuits in that starbucks, drinking water, chatting it up, and performing minor shenanigans. Eventually one of the local news channels showed up and interviewed them.
I might actually be on tv. If you see the confused looking patron in the corner, that was me.
After a few google searches, it looks like morphsuits are becoming mildly popular. Weird, but popular.
|It's like Blue Man Group. But green.|
- I'm about 230lbs. I'd look like Thundergut Johnson in one of those things... Maybe once I drop this last bit of weight...
- These costumes leave nothing to the imagination. You can see every bulge, bump, ridge etc on these people. The girls were cold & pointy. You could tell which guys were packing crayolas versus kielbasas in their pants. I don't think the world really wants to see my junk...
Will this fad catch on? Will we see legions of anons in morphsuits, doing flashmobs or committing various forms of shenanigans? Only time will tell.
