Strange, Odd, Weird or Wacky
High fashion doesn't always appeal to the masses, but fashion that hits the international runways often finds itself a major topic of conversation. Memorable, modern and mystic, the Octopus Dress finally gives women the opportunity to live out their fantasies; while most girls dreamed of being the Little Mermaid, there are some fashion lovers out there who had darker tastes and lusted after Ursula.
On May 23, 2009, the annual Beard and Moustache Championships competition will be taking place in Anchorage, Alaska. Inventor Spot first introduced this strange sport to readers in the "Top 10 Sports From Around The World", and in honor of this strange competition rolling around again, we're counting down the most weird and wacky moustaches and beards from the Beard and Moustache Championship photo gallery!
With the state of the economy, employers can bring a little humor to the workplace to show that they're feeling on the edge using a less than professional fashion statement.

Yesterday I wrote about a costly and luxurious dress made entirely of male peacock feathers and precious gemstones for the bride who really wants to stand out on her wedding day. So today, I thought I'd shift the focus to a series of garments that fall on the other side of the spectrum. Michelle Jank's garbage bag fashions which were designed for an Editorial Series with photographer Paul Scala are an example of a high fashion look for less.
Every bride wants to feel spectacular on her wedding day, but the most expensive wedding dress spotted this year is typically more about attracting a mate than making a commitment. Of course, the unique Peacock Feather Wedding Dress is a spectacular fashion item that isn't meant to follow the principles of nature from which the materials derived, but it sure makes a bold fashion statement.
People who live in colder climates are constantly searching for innovative ways to keep themselves protected from the elements. Enter The Beard Cap, a funny modern take on the balaclava which provides warmth to the face, neck and head all at the same time. Unlike with the balaclava, with the beard cap, you're less likely to be mistaken for a bank robber; or if you do have criminal intentions, it's a humorous way to detract from your fear factor.
