Do not adjust your monitor.



Some of the fetching ladies of the brand-new tango show "Tango Para La Eternidad" stand proudly in their costumes, designed to personify the many faces of tango: space alien, 1880s saloon girl, naked hippie, and Morticia Addams. *





* These dresses are real. They are designed by a fashion label that exists solely to manufacture "tango dresses", the majority of which presumably look like this. On purpose. I don't even know.

Oh, that made me laugh out loud.
Hey, notice the all the slits are on their right leg? Makes sense when you think about tango steps.

Even so, I prefer to dance without looking like a Las Vegas showgirl, those dresses are ... pffft.

Ahhhh!! My eyes!! It burnses them!!!
Whew! Ouch.... that actually hurt looking at that...
Although I am almost positive that I saw a trannie down on a corner in the theatre district wearing that the other night at 2am as I was driving home from milonga....
(no offense meant to trannies on corners, theatre districts, or 2am endeavors... only offense meant is to those "dresses"!!!)

Oh Gosh!!!!!1 I almost fell from the chair! This is so horrid that it is ridiculously hilarious :}

Does anybody actually pay for this???? I don't think I've ever seen anyone dressed remotely like this at a milonga... ugh. Do they actually sell the stuff???

Thanks for the great laugh!

Actually, there are some babes dressed like this at the milongas. Surprise surprise, they are not necessarily tourists either. Some even wear gauntlets! Well handless opera length gloves, whatever the hell they are called.
