If I answer "no" to your first question, do I have to click on the second link? I don't want to break any rules.

Yes HuronBob, you still have to click on the link. It's in the contract.

The manufacturer, Black Milk, also made the nerdgasmic R2 swimsuit, now completely expunged from their website. Perhaps Lucas sent a C&D order.

Or bought all of them.

I preferred the tetris leggings from the new collection.

Heidi always brings her A-game to these costumes.

Fizz: "A new fetish is created on this date."

Not that there's a resource that we can check in for the accepted start date for a fetish like we can use the OED to check on words' etymological background, but I've got a theory that goes beyond Rule Thirty Whatever that says if you can imagine something exists with current technology, somebody has already gotten off to it, meaning the only thing that hasn't been arousing is something that has yet to be created. I'm sure I could do research to back me up on this particular example, but if you think I'm going to Google "human filet muscle anatomy drawing fetish" to prove it, you've got me confused with somebody with a much stronger constitution.

On a related for-every-freak-flag-there-is-a-freak, the R2D2 swimsuit is pretty ridiculous, but if I saw the right guy in a nice male square cut version, from my perspective, the Force would be strong in him. If you know what I mean. And unfortunately for us all, I think you do.

that's a good idea, but it's still a horrible idea

And, if Heidi Klum is not really your style, try some Robbie Williams on for size.

Thank you Bookhouse. That's the kind of research I was looking for.

On preview, due to an actual in real life laugh out loud on my part, my partner also suggested the judges might accept Dennis Cooper but only if the leggings come in men's sizes (only small or medium required.)

"Heidi always brings her A-game to these costumes."

Possibly true, but it's not really her A-game . . . it's the A-game of support staff.

If I had a krabjillion dollars and people who would be deeply honored to make costumes for me for Halloween, as well as the top makeup people in the industry at my beck-and-call, you can bet your ass my costume would be SWEET every year.

Robbie Williams already explored this fetish in his Rock DJ video.

Oh I forgot linking BodyWorlds, Gunter's world touring exhibitions

Remember kids, there are real human beings being exposed! It's not a fiction wrapped in a fiction, it's real. And it's stunningly beautiful, delicate, elegant as an human body can be in its complexity. It's entirely a different thing from bodypainting, which is cute, but hey, that's real!

I don't like the idea that there's a Venn diagram with both Slim Goodbody and Heidi Klum on it.

I want those. But just on the but, and only on one side.

I like to do things half-assed.

I want the Tetris leggings for roller derby so f'n bad.

I can totally vouch that they make quality leggings. Not that I own a bunch or anything.

oh god black milk ♥♥♥ I just got their galaxy catsuit and it is the BEST THING I HAVE EVER BOUGHT TO WEAR. Jaws drop.

Heidi Klum reallly goes all out on Halloween, year after year. No shitty "sexy cop" or whatever for her. I suppose that's what the other 364 days are for. But her costumes are generally very impressive.

I think all of us will remember where we were when we heard that Heidi Klum is divorcing Seal. Heidi, Metafilter loves you!

Fuck you, Seal.

oh man I really want those! I wanted the r2d2 swimsuit so badly too. I am also coveting the galaxy catsuit.

I want of these based on a CT scan of my legs.

I would use them while riding. Next time a 20 year old cyclist passes me going faster on an uphill than I go on the flats, I can point to my knees and say "try doing that with all this scar tissue and torn muscle fibers".

I also want a hat based on my btain scan, to wear to code reviews. Try writting good code with all this drug damage, Mr. Big Shot.

Bodysuits for women are fine. Michael Kors on bodysuits for men: “Oh, no!” I thought. “This is turning into trashy lingerie for men.”
