Cora Gated

The Box Vox blog offers a detailed history of Cora Gated, who was the corporate mascot adopted by Hinde & Dauch (a box maker) in the 1950s. She was a woman wearing only a corrugated box. Or was she somehow supposed to be a box that had become a woman?

It turns out that Cora Gated was also the stage name of a burlesque dancer during the 1970s. Her tag line was, "The laminated delight. CORA GATED. She'll wrap you around her finger!"

I'll go with the notion that Cora is a box that has become a woman.

Out on the Left Coast, we had Carol Doda in San Francisco. She wasn't laminated, but she was stacked on top.
