The Swiss are calling, they want their clothes back

Marvel has had some “interesting” costume models over the years, but had you told me they could combine the likes of the Shoney’s Big Boy:

With German lederhosen:

By way of a super-powered S&M fetish and a glowing, creepy, vaguely obscene mouth-hole in order to give us this:

I’d have said the only thing that’s a Living Monolith to is Bad Fashion. Youch!

    Is it just me or does that giant over the shoulder diaper look awfully heavy?.

    And what is with the holes in the boots on top of the feet? I guess thats to reduce the foot odor.

  2. Plus, how do you bend over when your navel-height shorts are made out of metal?

  3. Big Boys pants are in no way Swiss, they could be Croatian though.

    And for the second pic, those are not Lederhosen. It looks more like a mock-up version for carnival. Besides, the hat is ridiculous. It was last seen worn by Errol Flynn in his Robin Hood movie.

  4. Swiss was a leftover from when I first wrote the title, before finding the images, sorry.

    As for lederhosen, what can I say, that’s what comes up when I do a Google Image search for lederhosen. Take it up with them.

    Am I counting two collars on this outfit or are my eyes deceiving me? It looks like the outside collar is trying to reach around to strangle him. I can understand why.

  6. But the inner collar is defending him…that bastard.

  7. Jeff, sometimes you are truely and wonderfully strange!
    Love your off kilter veiw on things

  8. This is from when he was a back-up dancer for Dazzler. It really sparkles under the disco ball and strobe lights!

  9. Gargoyle323, he IS the Disco Ball and strobe lights! He’s FAAABULOUS!

    What ever happened to Thursday’s “Help” topic by the way? I haven’t seen it for a while.

  12. I miss Big Boy restaurants. :(

  13. How the hell did he get into that get-up in the first place?

    I realize I tend to be pedantic sometimes, but this info might do you some good. If you want to avoid having Germans look at you funny–and who wants that?–be sure to pronounce it “LAY-der-ho-zen.” That is, if you’re going to pronounce it at all. It means, more or less, “leather pants.” If you say “I’m wearing LEE-der-ho-zen,” you’re saying your trousers sing.
    More on topic, this guy reminds me of an old-school beercan pop-top.

    My pants sing to sometimes . . .

    nevermind . . .

  16. I don’t know which outfit’s worse; this guy’s, or Borat’s mankini
