Just Call Me Helga

I finally got a new bathing suit last night. Ever since the wardrobe malfunction on the beach last summer, in which I issued a public apology to the inhabitants of that section of Rehoboth Beach, I've needed a new one.

Well, I got one last night.

It was a family affair, so you can imagine the unadulterated joy it was to bathing suit shop - which I hate - with The Man and Urchins in tow. I basically got the one that I could tolerate and called it a night.

So I now own a bathing suit with leopard print. Grey and black toned leopard print. I've never owned a leopard printed anything in my life. (I heard those gasps of shock, but believe it, leopard print ain't my shtick.)

It also has cups of steel. I kid you not. I could knock on these knockers and hear a resounding ~BONG~. I feel like I should be sporting a helmet with horns protruding from each side and wielding a spear as I descend from Valhalla.

If only I could work it like Bugs bunny, then at least I'd know I looked good.

But alas, I fear I wear it like Helga, the opera singing warrior in my old favorite video game Clayfighter.

I originally was trying for some rockabilly style. It has that vintage pinup vibe about it. Here's a picture. It doesn't show the cups that well, but you get the idea.

I may add little gun barrels to the center of each cup just to give a nod to the Austin Powers Fembots. We'll see.

Speaking of vintage pin up girl style, if you haven't checked these guys out, you're no hep cat of mine. I love their designs.

So, any bathing suit disasters you'd care to share with the rest of the class? We're all ears!

No recent horrors, but once when I was in college and still wearing a bikini I was playing frisbee on the beach and a strap broke...things fell out...and my brother-in-law was the first to notice. My creepy brother-in-law.
I still shiver to think about it.

No bathing suit disasters to share. Just agreement that shopping for bathing suits sucks. That and sheer admiration for doing so with an audience.

That's a really cute suit! Congrats for finding something :) I have no bathing suit snafus to report but I enjoyed yours. LOL!

Oooh, not good, Sue. At least you had the co-ed body for a wardrobe malfunction. I alas, did not.

Ava Quinn said...

Thank you, Melissa. It did take much bravery.

Ava Quinn said...

Glad I could entertain you, Misty!
