It fits like a second (sex) skin.

It puts the lotion in the basket. [nsfw] You know how in that movie, The Silence of the Lambs, the serial killer they're trying to catch is skinning women because he wants to make a suit out of real girls? If this product was around, perhaps we could have saved the lives of a lot of fictional victims.

Thanks for spoiling the movie, jerk.

Really, though... creepy. That's all I have to say.

That actually has a refreshing abattoir-esque kind of quality to it. These are probably made to order in very small quantities by a very creepy looking person.

Giving away the movie like that sucks. Like, really sucks. "It puts the lotion in the basket" would have been fine without a freaking PLOT SYNOPSIS.

There are, believe it or not, people who haven't seen SOTL. It's a fantastic movie, and it deserves better treatment than that.

Metafilter: Options can include a penis pouch inside the female genitaliae with a built in urethra tube connected to the urethra orifice, making it possible to urinate from within the bodysuit.

Also, an NSFW warning may be in order. Thank crap I'm not looking at this at work.

Also apologies for the spoiler. I didn't think that was a spoiler. I thought it was the other thing in the movie.

Heh, davy. I can see this as a possible 'tester' for people considering male to female transgender surgery or for very well-heeled cross-dressers/drag queens/cosplayers.

Hmm, I wonder how difficult it would be to set up a similar production but (also) catering to furries or trekkies who like to dress up as klingons or Star Wars fans?

There are probably more hardcore furries/trekkies (who could be more effectively advertised to) with a lot more disposable income than there are crossdressers with that kind of disposable income.

On the one hand, this is kind of making me feel like the Real Dolls guys and the rabbit-expelling witch are Ward and June Cleaver by comparison. On the other hand, a friend of mine who is going through MtoF transition might find this some sort of small, temporary (if bizarre) respite from 40 years of unremitting sorrow and frustration that I can't begin to fathom.

On preview: Which doesn't make me laugh any less maniacally at what quin just said.

There are probably more hardcore furries/trekkies (who could be more effectively advertised to) with a lot more disposable income than there are crossdressers with that kind of disposable income.

Speaking as someone with ties to and experience with the crossdressing, furry, and trekkie communites, this statement is dead wrong. There are few rich furries, and the trekkies that were once rich lost it all in the dot com crash. On the other hand, there are a lot more crossdressers than you think out there, and they exist in all walks of life. Rather a lot of them have money to blow on expensive underthings.

One of the reasons for this is that furries, though they get very little respect, are not actually reviled in mainstream society, because not all that many people have heard of them (by comparison). They don't feel that their life will be over if their horrible secret gets out, as crossdressers do, so they commonly end up acting like, well, freaks, and not getting promoted. Crossdressers go to elaborate lengths to put on an appearance of normality when in public, which is good for business. Plus they dress for success.

I would like this a lot more if someone hacked some credit card databases, tracked down guys who have blown $4,000 on realistic sex toys, and then skinned a variety of RealDolls to make the suit.

Imagine someone who comes home, opens the door, and begins constructing dialogue in his head, "Bambi, I'm home. Are you ready to play?" Then he goes up to the bedroom and find his RealDoll partially flayed, yet still posed in some queasily erotic position, vapid donut smile over the acre of raw, now-nippleless silicone chest.

It'd be even better with fake blood over the "body."
