East Fug

Psst, Patty:

You’re either really early, or really late for that Halloween party, but either way, please give your friend The Phantom my best. I hope living down there in the basement isn’t wreaking havoc on his lumbago but, you know. He made his bed. Or his boat, as the case may be.

    the color of her face is closer to the wall behind to than to the skin tone of her clavicle.

    That’s taking the Twilight hype too far, having the blood drained from your head.

  3. Erin

    The cape trend is already causing problems.

      Agreed! I was OK with Gwenny… it was interesting, made you do a double take and think “OMG is that a……. CAPE?”…… but this is a C A P E….. and certainly an Isadora Duncan waiting to happen ( and please note I’m not making light of Ms. Duncan’s death….such a huge tragedy)

    I really love her as an actress but dang, she looks just like Grandpa from The Munsters here.

    And she would be …? Aaaanywho, her shiny, pasty visage with a bloody gash of a mouth is NOT the worst part of this. The cape is not, either. It’s the sparkly elbow length gloves.

    Oh, I thought she was a bridesmaid at Batman’s wedding.

    You know, if there’s anywhere outside of Halloween where an opera cape is appropriate? It’s at the opera. I wish the contrast of black and charcoal against her super-pale skin weren’t quite so stark, but I really kind of dig the concept here.

      I went to grad school with a woman who wore capes – like to class – and was writing her thesis on lesbian vampires.

    I said, out loud: “What the hell? Is she wearing a costume?”

  10. Minutiae

    “Lumbago.” Hee! There’s just something so 70′s about that word.

    The less said about the outfit, the better.

    Are we SURE this isn’t for a costume party? Because I love PC (she was amazing, and hilarious, on Parks and Rec recently) and want better for her.

    Maybe being on Parks and Rec comes with a fug curse… witness Rashida Jones, the many missteps of Amy P., etc…. a curse that causes otherwise smart, funny, pretty women to make bad style choices.

    What’s faster than a diminishing fashion trend?
    Who can leap tall cliches in a single bound?
    Why, it’s Opera Woman, Superhero of society!

    I love her and I’m going to pretend this didn’t happen. It didn’t. Shush.

  14. Sajorina

    I honestly like this sans gloves of doom! She’s so freaking AWESOME!

  15. mary lou bethune

    A talented and lovely woman who deserves better.

    Seriously scary pale.

    Marilyn Manson is probably jealous of her perfected deceased pallor.

  18. Jules

    Argh, now I can’t get that song out of my head. Again.

  19. CranAppleSnapple

    I have that Halloween costume! Only mine is burgundy, like dried blood.

    Great actress. Beautiful woman. I like the dress and belt. Long gloves are, after all, called “opera length” and she IS at the opera so I honestly can’t fug the gloves — though I might if she were anywhere else. But the cape! Oy, the cape! I have to fug the cape. I’m with Edna Mode: “No capes!”

  21. Deli

    HAHA This is awesome

  22. katkin74

    Cape + full length gloves + mime makeup = I don’t know what. All I said when I saw this was, “Holy…” and then ran out of words. My brain stopped functioning, it’s THAT bad.

  23. Lily1214

    No, no, no!

  24. Charlotte

    This is within visibility of a Secretly Awesome to me. If either the dress or the cape covered the shoulders, it would be great. Different gloves+jeweled clasp would probably make it fab

  25. Charlotte

    Oh, you all are right about the makeup/skin tone, though. OK, covered shoulders + better makeup: those are the fixes.
