Why We Look Like Geeks (in the future)





For the A-Z Blog challenge, I will be addressing some of life's big questions.
Perhaps together we can find the answers to many heretofore unsolvable mysteries.



is for Futuristic Clothing


What is up with futuristic clothing? Why do so many movies show people dressed in skin-tight aluminum foil?

Let's face it. With the direction Americans are headed in terms of body shape, theses outfits are not going to look attractive on very many people. (Especially me.)

How is anything like this even remotely comfortable or practical? Do they think we will never have to sit down? Or eat?


One thing I really liked about the TV series Firefly (and movie Serenity) is the way they depicted the futuristic clothing. They had styles reminiscent of all of earth's past eras, plus some furtury-looking stuff too.






What's your take on fashions of the future?

Tomorrow's Question:
Really? A three hour tour?

  1. Firefly was an awesome show and wish it would have been on longer. I agree with that their clothing seemed more likely the clothing future people would wear. I also think it will reflect peoples money situation. In Firefly, those folks were mainly poor, like me. So that is how I will dress in the future. Now, Lady Gaga and Labron James will be in the skin tight suits because they are rich and famous.

    And, yes, Firefly is awesome because it is so believable and real! :D

  3. This made me laugh out loud - "Let's face it. With the direction Americans are headed in terms of body shape, theses outfits are not going to look attractive on very many people. (Especially me.)"

  6. Fashion is for Humans. We Bears don't have time for that stuff. I mean, what can you do with a hear-to-toe fur coat?

  7. I think they try to make the clothes look completely different to anything most people wear, to further reinforce that it's not anything like the past/present. But...considering everything seems to be "retro-fashion" at the moment anyway, I agree, it doesn't make much sense!

    Great A-Z post :)
