My birthday is also coming up, and it is my last in my twenties. Right now I'm going back and forth between being like, "Whatevs, being 30 next year is no big deal and still totally young," and "Augh so OOOOLLLLLLDDDDD." But I think this is normal. It is always exciting and scary to stare into the future and wonder what things will be like. In 1962 the Seattle Times asked Howard Blair to sketch something that he thought that women would wear living on the moon in the 21st century. Here is what he came up with:
The copy reads, "Howard Blair, Seattle designer, sketched this costume as his idea of what the well-dressed woman would wear in the year 2000. The pressurized quilted pants have an inner lining that controls temperatures. Seventy-five pound weights in the heel of each shoe will keep her feet on the ground. The cape is of blue velvet and leather."
Wow. That look is FIERCE. So next time, dear readers, you find yourself feeling apprehensive about what is to come, just think of Howard Blair. He looked into the future and saw superhero fabulousness. We should too.
