Maybe I just have really bad taste or something but I thought it was funny.

A bit creepy with the girl but it isn't real.
Nothing is worth doing that isn't worth doing badly.

Yeah the first thing I thought when I saw the photo was that it had to be photoshopped.

I don't know..I don't think it's photoshopped. I mean what's to photoshop? And even if it was it doesn't change anything. It's still in poor taste to have it displayed like that.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Anarfea, don't feel bad, I laughed too. My next thought was OMG how long did that take to knit and they must be sooooo HOT in those things.

She's an English artist who specializes in fiber arts. Anna Maltz. So no photoshop. But I wonder if the girl in the photo did that on her own, or if the photographer/artist suggested it. Or worse, does she play with her father's stuff in general and so it was a normal activity. I think the idea and art of doing it is great. I think the little girl holding her father's thang is hideous. That's a real family. There's another family who posed in Maltz's suits and she wanted them to go out to a public place and they refused. So it's not about the models and their morals, it's about Maltz. I've seen her interviewed and there's something about the way she talks that makes her sound crazy.

I don't find the suits HALF as disturbing as the child touching the man's penis. In an "adult" world the suits might have some entertainment value (I said MIGHT) but there is NO EXCUSE for involving children.

I thought it was some sort of weird hippy 70's sex education experiment gone wrong, like those hideously out of date videos they made us watch in school
