The site appears to have been written by French person with a so-so apprehension of english grammar. The page in French is at the root of the site, and the english page is in a subdirectory.

Indeed, I was hoping for a more "cosmetic surgery meets Roos sneakers" in-body pouch-system.

Like a built-in fanny-pack. A zippered butt-cheek, if you will.

A little history might be in order.

I have been looking for a man-purse lately... but from these folks... I think not.

Ewwww. I don't gross out easily, but this stuff sticks in my uncanny valley.

You know, I just caught myself wondering at the wisdom and efficacy of Buffalo Bill's strategy of applying lotion to keep his victims' skin supple as they lost weight. And then I realized he's a freakin' psycho and it's a work of fiction.

Then I decided I need a beer or something. And maybe a woman suit.

Is this a PETA stunt, or what?

It may be faked but it is thoroughly disgusting. Not that I don't think they have a right to sell their wares, I just don't think anyone should buy anything from them. Though I know there will be lots of angst ridden teens who will want to display their non-conformity in this rather grotesque way.

Thanks ever so much for making my own real skin crawl.

I am *so* going to get decked out in this stuff when "Silence: The Musical" comes to town. (Check out track 6 if you haven't heard it.)

Anyone else thinking "Double Bowling-Ball Bag"? No, I suppose not.

Surely I am not the only one reminded of the "wallet made out of foreskin" joke here?

And for those of you who prefer
the comfort of genuine sheepskin to synthetics,
here's something truly el creepy
(especially the set-up with the flowers, drapes and little-man statue)

• Material : synthetic human skin

Like the stuff used on burn victims?

Juju, you're always ahead of the fashion curve. Here I am still in last season's synthetic animal fur, and there you are leading the pack.

You know, you can get the same affect on your face by stretching wrinkled plastic wrap around your head, but there's that nagging suffocation issue.

Dang, briank, you beat me to it.

You know, I have a friend in biotech who always talked about making leather for vegans. He was going to take skin cells, grow them into sheets of skin, and tan the stuff into leather. He never could understand why we found the idea so creepy, looks like he was just ahead of his time.

No, it's not a PeTA thing. It's just some art from someone whose homepage makes him appear both plain odd in taste (WARNING: NSFW... but funny if you like somethingawful), and really strange (probably NSFW and definately not funny).
