Oxygen-Tank Bubble Dress

An oxygen-tank bubble dress designed by Hana Marie Newman. It supplies the wearer with a constant supply of purified air, so they don't have to breathe in the polluted air that everyone else is choking on. Reminds me of Emilio Pucci's bubble bonnet that I posted about several weeks ago. [via treehugger]

Sometimes breathing smog is just preferable!

As side benefits it masks halitosis, prevents smudged make-up, and keeps you from breaking your diet.

"Look, mama! The Emperor has no clothes!"

"...a bubble dress with a built-in air purification system."

How well does it work on self-contained flatulence?

'How well does it work on self-contained flatulence?' LOL
She looks like she is inside one of those bubbles like we used to blow through a straw from that goop that came in a tube. Anybody remember that stuff?

Yup, sure do; I even found a page or two on the stuff! Click here for a ride down memory lane.

That's the stuff!

Come to think about it... IIRC, if you inhaled you could get a bit of a buzz on.

Good toys back in the day.

Yep you sure could. But I'm sure nobody ever did that! tongue rolleye

Looking closely, I believe the model has an oxygen cannula. In which case, the armor is fairly redundant, except for the stuff tadchem pointed out. It also stops you from scratching your nose. Plus, the weight of the oxygen canister provides you with a convenient workout - but, not to worry, since the BO is also self-contained!
