Ladies from the Future!

"Miss Flying Saucer" by Bill Randall, 1959

I've been invited to another costume party, this time the theme is Retro Sci Fi! I had a look around to see what ladies would supposedly be wearing in the future according to 1960s movies and pulp fiction covers.

1. It has to be silver.

Silver is THE colour of the Future. It's pretty much the only colour any self-respecting future lady will be wearing.

2. Catsuits are very popular, especially when paired with a goldfish bowl helmet.






3. If not wearing a catsuit, you should wear something very skimpy. With a cape.

4. Boobs should be pointy, and preferably encased in some sort of armoured breastplate.

5. If you don't want to wear a helmet, sproingy antenni make a nice alternative.



7. Nobody wears shoes in the future. It's all about boots.





8. When in doubt, dress up like Sputnick.

Stay tuned for details of my Futuristic Space Outfit!

  3. PS It's so reassuring to know that in the future, everyone wears boots all of the time. No longer will I look like a fool when wearing motorcycle boots to the beach. Hurrah!

  4. Now you've done it. A soldier of Gondor has fallen for a woman from outer space.
