Tonight only! Zombie strippers at the Admiral: The undead meet the unclothed


From The Chicago Tribune:

One rips off a bikini top. The other rips an arm off a hapless victim, beating the just-single-limbed person mercilessly before feasting on the bloody remains. Neither wants you touching them.

Exotic dancers and zombies, the two grand pillars of American subculture, have finally joined forces — thus proving our nation’s obsession with the walking dead has irrevocably crossed the line of mainstream consciousness, where now strippers are parodying a trend.

The site is Albany Park’s Admiral Theatre, a gentlemen’s club where chairs have leopard prints and a woman who works there is named Euphoria (likely not her Christian name).

Wednesday night, club organizers are throwing an event called “Night of the Stripping Dead,” where professional makeup artists will transform otherwise pious dancers into undead dancers.

The highlight, said club marketing manager Tim Brown, will be a performance by zombie burlesque dancer Miss Maya Sinstress. Brown first noticed Sinstress at a burlesque convention.

“She came out in a metal corset, metal bikini and proceeded to take it off with a chain saw,” Brown said. “It floored me.”

Brown, who came up with the idea, was also particularly excited about “zombie (little people)” running the concession stand that night, which he said is “gonna be nuts.”

Chloe Ruchon: ‘Barbie foot’ at DMY Berlin Design Festival 09

From Design Boom:

‘barbiefoot’ by french design chloe ruchon combines the iconic doll with table football.
on one side it uses barbie’s pink, frilly world and on the other its uses the predominantly
male world of table soccer, the one that is traditionally called ‘babyfoot’ in france.
barbie became a symbol of ideal femininity, with exacerbated body proportions
and a vast landscape of fantasies surrounding this cliche.

by bringing the two worlds together ‘barbiefoot’ wishes to stimulate thoughts
about different mentalities and the pre- digested everyday ideas we commonly face.

the product was created in partnership with mattel brands consumer products
and babyfoot bonzini.

‘barbiefoot’ was part of the DMY youngsters exhibition at DMY berlin design festival 09.
