My dress? Actually I designed it myself. I had the comics screen printed onto the dress and then fashioned it into this ballgown. And Joan Rivers and her plastic face can just shut it.
sir_mikael
Mar. 16th, 2010 09:02 am (UTC)
Ooh, which comics did you get printed?
For instance the stuff in your icon elongated and wrapped around would make an interesting but terrifying ballgown. So it'd probably become the hight of fashion. Put if Joker shows up, for the love of God just give him the royalties...

I'm not sure Joan can shut it. All that plastic might be like joker gas and prevent her from relaxing her mouth muscles.
(I do love her though.)
