Here we go again—another creepy creation. This one was made by artist Jessica Harrison:
I’ll give her this: I can see how she might find tiny flies’ legs to be reminiscent of human eyelashes, but couldn’t she just leave it at that? I mean, my rescued beagle Lulu, R.I.P., had ears that felt just like velvet, but that didn’t inspire me to go around hacking off hounds’ ears to make a beagle blazer.
Perhaps Harrison thought no one would care if she exploited flies? Wrong. After all, true compassion has no boundaries—besides, there’s no good reason to wear animals—or insects.
