The Mermaid Gets Married


 Madame A and I went to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the DeYoung Museum back in July, and it was pretty amazing.  Weird, but amazing.  He was the designer behind Madonna's infamous cone bra in the Blond Ambition tour in the 90's, as well as the movie The Fifth Element. 

Above is the mermaid's wedding gown.  Note the coral-encrusted crutches, since as a mermaid, she would have some trouble walking on land.



The faces on selected mannequins were projected images, which had an eerie effect.  They would blink, occasionally speak, and startle me.


A closeup of the crutches.


And the concept art.

Weird concept, blinking too, that's why the artist is famous.
