stylish boats...whatever this is. i don't know anything about boats, though.

Abusing the "admire" loophole to the utmost, on the basis that the thread desperately needs a higher nerd quotient...

And actually, honestly, I think all the above are much more interesting & imaginative designs than anything else posted in the thread. As for the relevance to how I dress? Obviously limited as cosplay has never been my thing!
Perhaps, though, they reflect that I've never taken real-life objects terribly seriously. Home decor, high-end gadgets, watches, cars... none of them really grab me though they certainly offer some transient amusement. Cleverly crafted food & drink ranks a little higher perhaps. But most of the artisanal/handwork aspects intrinsic to the make of things that many enjoy appreciating on SF goes right past me and I don't "feel" all the various shoe/whatever pron-type threads beyond a vague "yeah, OK, pretty shoes" level. I can appreciate it intellectually, of course, but not emotionally. A well put together outfit, though, that I find engaging because it's a well-sketched manifestation of an imaginary idea. The components and their history/nature/make, matter much less to me than the synthetic whole. Not zero, mind, but less. The pics above are of clever ideas; somehow their very unreality/impracticality enhances that in my mind.
I would like to take the opportunity to point out I not only own 3 out of 4 items pictured in my post, but they're also often partly visibly in my WAYWRN pics. Now that's dedication. However, as they're only models of the imaginary items in question, I think that means it's also fair that people can post real-life cars/speedboats/high-end-stereo-systems they don't own, provided they at least possess a Matchbox toy of it....
First cloned pashmina goat. ^
"More cashmere might mean more cash for Kashmir. That's the desired outcome in the Indian-controlled region of the territory after the successful cloning of a rare Himalayan pashmina goat whose undercoat is used to make the pricey wool. The female kid, was born March 9, after two years of work by seven scientists. It's hoped her birth will spark breeding programs (and more wool) in the region, where cashmere generates $80 million annually."
Now that's pretty stylish, I'd say. And this goat is not clothing. Yet.
