I think it's a silvery bodysuit--it helps make her look more, um...liquid! Kind of like mercury! :shock:

Okay... that was.... disgusting....

Eww... you could see her bones stick out far :shock: :oo:

AAAAGGGHH!!!
She's..............really icky and sort of disturbing.
I lost track of where the parts actually should be/normally are. Blech!
On the other hand, she probably has lots of dates. :shock:

Contortionism is so rockin', though I have a feeling I'm the only one here that might think such. >.> <.<

Her ribs and back was doing something really funky, though. She was way too skinny to be able to do the things she was doing safely...
Her spine also was warped, and that can happen if you contort TOO much. It can also result in osteoporosis, sculliosis, and many many other back problems as you continue growing...it's why I stopped with my acrobatics when I turned my teen growth spurt years...

Contortionism done right is really neat though...

It's not just the flexibility but the amazing STRENGTH to do that. Usually people don't realize this, but to do anything like that or even things that are less extreme like ballet requires a lot of strength. For instance, I'm much more flexible than you might realize because I can bend all kinds of ways and do a lot of things in my ballet class - But I'm not strong enough to do them as well as I will be able to.
