  1. You can’t scare me, Scalzi. I just got back from Dragon*Con, where I may or may not have groped one of those alien “Yep yep yep / nope nope nope” aliens.

  2. Oh, Jesus. That is awful. Now I’m thinking about drunk chick Elmo impersonations.

    I remember way back in the day running across a website for adult male Hello Kitty fans that was extremely indignant about adult male Hello Kitty fans who were involved in the hobby for unspecified ‘wrong reasons.’

    I think we’re looking at one of those wrong reasons here.

  3. The care instructions say, “Do not wash.” I think what they REALLY meant to write there was “DO NOT WANT!!” :O

  4. The entire “furry crowd / community” just went up a notch in my opinion after reading that.

    (If you weren’t a pro puppeteer, I would suspect you of pulling an elaborate prank on us in your final guestblogging days.)

  5. I think it looks less like a “sexy elmo” costume and more like the woman killed elmo for his pelt and made a dress out of it.

  6. It is now official: the “Sexy ____ Halloween Costume” meme has been played out. It can truly go no further.

  7. Good God, now I’m hearing Elmo in my head singing “Bringing Sexy Back.”

    WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME???

  8. What’s scarier to me is that price tag… really?

    *Elmo’s bringing Sexy Back…* (Thanks a LOT MasterThief)

  9. I knew Elmo was a woman! Ha!

    This is going to lead to demand for the children’s book, “Heather has Two Elmos.”

  10. @6 The best (or worst) part of the Skinned Elmo Theory is that she made a hat out of his skull.

  11. Oh… my… gawd.
    @#6 Cathy – Yes, totally agree, and that ‘elmo head hat’ part especially is just… just… Ok, I don’t know what it is, except WRONG! All of it is so, very, very, very wrong…

  12. Ooooo, I need bleach for my brain now, thankyouverymuch.

    Hey, kimsmith@13, you write it (“Heather has two Elmos”), I’ll stock it. It won’t take long for it to hit
    the Banned Books List either.

  13. Hee hee HA — it’s a lot less “sexy” than I was expecting, actually. In dimensions it is demure enough to wear to my office.

    Now “disturbing,” on the other hand, I will give you. She is wearing Elmo’s face on her head. Brr.

  14. @kimsmith – Actually Elmo is a large black man.
    I kid you not. Here is proof.

  15. This is going to make for some very confused youngsters this Hallowe’en.

    “Why did Mommy kill Elmo?” Or, “Elmo makes me feel funny. Like when we used to climb the rope in gym class.”

  16. Cathy @ 6, I have had the pleasure of using “muppetskin” in conversation a few times lately. “Oooh, what a lovely muppetskin coat!”

  17. what really bothers me is that the site says that it is an offically licensed product of “Sesame Street” EWWWWW. “Can you tell me how to NOT get to Sesame Street?”

  18. And don’t do a google image search for that phrase. You have been warned!

  19. I agree with Cathy #6, and she’s wearing the hat at SUCH a jaunty angle!

    What does it say about me that my first thought on seeing the name of the link was “Rule 34: It’s not just a bad idea, it’s THE LAW”?

  20. To kill the Elmo…to wear his flesh..to become one with the Elmo…

  21. Once there were vast herds of Elmos running through the forests of this land. A simple herbivore (prefering cookies and sweets off the vine) they were slaughtered for their luxurious red nylon pelts.

  22. The saddest part of that ad was reading that it was an officially-licensed Sesame Street product.

  23. Sesame Streetwalker dressed in Elmo skins…

    …just think…someday this will help kill the childhood of the Tickle Me Elmo generation.
