Glow Suit for Clowns

anti-paparazzi-clothes2-550x375.jpg

Thanks to DJ Chris Holmes, celebrities can now ward off those pesky paparazzi and their intrusive photography with ease.
They just need to wear pieces from Holmes'€™ new "€˜Anti Paparazzi Collection"€™ -- €“ a line of clothing made from a reflective material completely ruins flash photographs. The collection currently consists of a hooded jacket, an infinity scarf, suit pants, a blazer, and a hat. While they look like regular clothes, the fabric is actually coated with glass nanospheres. This coating makes the clothes act like mirrors when hit with bright light, so the resulting images are horribly underexposed and the wearer is practically invisible. | Oddity Central

Your Say

A clothing style like this is just a flash in the pan.
Besides, it makes it easier for IR surveillance cameras to image them.
My uncle Letsgo "Big Bantam" Lozko once developed a camouflage suit made entirely of chicken feathers.
Success slipped from his grasp when he discovered that wearing the suit attracted every dog in the neighborhood. A few foxes too. uh, the four-legged kind.

If a person does NOT want to become a target of the paparazzi it is probably best to avoid the places where they hang out. Then no retard suit is required.

A solution in search of a problem.

That's kind of a neat idea, although I don't understand why it is the same people who strive so very hard to be famous and well known get so upset when it happens.

Good for him. If he makes it expensive enough he only has to sell a couple to the Tom Cruises of the world.

If they didn't yearn so badly to be famous in the first place they wouldn't be posing as being concerned about paparazzi. Poor little rich boys and girls. tsk

I may be the same tech that came out a few years back to prevent license plates from being photographed.
