There is a saying when seeking the true festival experience: “Onesie is the loneliest number.” Nevertheless, one could make a case that the onesie is the ideal festival garb (as we hinted yesterday). It’s easy, to be sure: you just put it on and go (unless of course you want to accessorize, which you likely do). It’s versatile, in the way that pants and a shirt are versatile, except it’s both at once. And it’s fashionable. (Don’t argue on this last one, you’re not here at the Gorge. You don’t know what it’s like). So, in honor of the single-minded sartorialists of Sasquatch!, we are dedicating the day-two Squatch Watch to the Onesie Percenters. Behold:
So we’re starting pretty literally here. This guy is wearing a onesie and has a “1” painted on his chest. We got it, dude! Extra points for the classic fire-engine red union suit.
Now we’re talking. The tie-dyed onesie looks both backward and forward. A nod to the fashionable patterns of yore, but an acknowledgement that we will all be living single garment lives soon. (However — and it’s very cool — he is also wearing a tie-dyed T-shirt underneath. It’s like one of those stereoscopic images: if you just let your eyes go slack, a picture may emerge.)
Would it be weird to say this is a fairly typical Sasquatch! outfit? Well, it is.
Despite your intuitions on the subject, you should never onesie alone. It pays to have a friend. That way, when necessary, both of you can verify to the other that he is not, in fact, dreaming.
So, get ready. On first gloss, this would look like your average, run-of-the-mill dress/cape/sash, but if you look behind this young lady you will see tent poles. The garment she is wearing doubles as a domicile! This really is a step forward in fashion evolution. I mean, with an iPhone and this tent/dress, you could really go anywhere.
