Idea-A-Day Six ~ Luminous

Idea Count: 6/20

Title: Luminous Puffy Dress

Category: Fashion

Feasibility: 9/10

Likelihood: 8/10


What's this? You better believe it.

Prom dresses are interesting. Being a guy, I'll never have to wear one, yet I get to see them three times a year. They're outrageously expensive, and most of them are fairly immodest. I figure any prom dress that doesn't cover you right is just an expensive towel.

And really, towels aren't worth that much. You should probably play it safe and get the modest ones.

In any event, I was at a dance recently where all the girls were wearing prom dresses. Some were modest, some weren't. That's not really the point of the discussion, the point here is that I've got a pretty good idea.

See, girls go all out for these dresses. So, why not push the envelope?

I'm thinking of putting some sort of lights in the dress. In the bottom part, the poofy skirt-ish part. I have no idea what to call that part. But, can you see those big princess-esque dresses, the modest ones? With the big bottom parts. How cool would it be to have some sort of soft light emanating from within? You'd totally be glowing.

And since you're in a very low-light environment, it'd be an amazing effect. You'd look like some sort of angelic doober.

It'd definitely be a soft light, nothing huge. You'd have to have several lights, so as to avoid casting awkward leg-shadows. They'd have to be small, lightweight, and not generate a lot of heat. Battery powered, not prone to catching on fire. They'd have to cast light evenly everywhere.

But still, how cool would that be? At the dance I was at, I saw some girl standing on some stairs in a dress like that. There weren't lights in it, but she was leaning up against the wall right in front of a light, it was sorta buried in her big bottom part of her dress. It totally light the whole thing up, it was an awesome effect.

So hey, why not steal the idea and market it?

So that's my idea. Make prom dresses that glow just a little bit. You'd honestly be radiant. I'm not sure if I've done a good job putting the picture across, but in my mind it's pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen. Just a comfortable warm glow. Hmmm. Perhaps I'll have to sponsor an experiment next homecoming. Hmmm indeed.

i think you need more naysayers in your life because this is kind of a stupid idea. . .did you want the girls to electrocute themselves when they are trying to go to the bathroom or were you just trying to write part of another teen movie where the stuck up, in-fashion cheerleaders get electrocuted by their hi-tech dresses? (well, That is a good idea anyways)
