You know the excuse “creative and artsy” only takes you so far before we all just call bullshit. But which bag lady do you guys like better?

    It’s a Nintendo DS not a cell phone.

    It’s not a cellphone, it’s a 3ds dummy.

    Goodgawdalmighty! I get the female biped on the left – she is recycling by bringing her walmart bags back to use again. On the right…omg, she is recycling too!! Fashionista that she is, I suspect a new fad!

    As someone who makes things out of Walmart bags, myself, I actually have to admire them for their craftiness…but, the woman on the right did it better. She displayed that she (or whoever made that for her) is skilled with plastic fusion (the art of using an iron to fuse plastic bags between two pieces of parchment paper to turn them into a durable fabric), which even I myself have trouble with. Turning trash into something usable is, admittedly, a wonderful skill.

    @HARLEYMAN That’s DS or 3DS, by the way. Not a cell phone. :P

    @Harleyman looks like she’s playing a Nintendo DS.
    Can someone explain seriously what the fuck is going on here?

    I am a woman, not a “guy” (unless you meant the word “guys” to include both sexes, as in “Hey, you guys” on “The Electric Company”) — but I’ll attempt to answer your question, anyway.

    ~~ The grey-haired lady who is showing her face is the better-dressed of the two Walmart-bag-ladies, IMO. Her fake dress required much more work to make. ~~

    (Though I do hope that she is wearing a proper slip underneath that dress!)

    Notice how she arranged the lighter and darker grey bags in an intentional pattern of alternating colors. Also, the blue details (“Walmart” logo) on the Walmart bags seem to compliment both her eyeglass frames and the color of her cell-phone (or whatever else that blue rectangular thing might be; make-up case/compact?). Yes, color-coordinated!

    I just love the remarkably high level of malicious intentionality and fanatical devotion to what is clearly her favorite store (Walmart) that she has displayed simply by publically wearing a frock made of that store’s bags — in public. (Or maybe, instead of loving Walmart, she actually hates Walmart, and is wearing her home-made “Walmart” couture in public as a visible sign of contempt! Hard to tell!)

    The younger lady, probably a teenager, had done a pretty cute job of making a make-shift ballet tutu with matching hair-ribbons, yes, very “good” (in a bad way) — but it takes a real woman to tape together a mid-calf-length faux “mondrian” dress out of plastic shopping bags that she had carefully smoothed-out and cut. She deserves the prize for making a dress that should have been made out of cloth instead of shopping-bags –she did a very good job at making a very bad thing! :-)

    Folks, this is D.I.Y. gone very bad, and impeccably bad taste, and everything done with deliciously malicious intentionality: The BEST Of The WORST.
