i don't even know what to say about that 'dress'. no lie - my mouth is hanging open. and i have been a biker chick in my younger days and there isn't much i haven't seen but to get on a cruise ship with that on!!!!! i don't know if i've ever seen anything that tasteless. and posing like she has on some haute couture dress is really amazing.

Ugh....

FWIW, I'm guessing that the 'dress' is actually chain mail 'armor' for live-action role-playing (LARP). I've seen that kind of thing before. But usually it's worn OVER a proper costume!

I admit it! I'm a gamer. I've never done LARP, but I know people who do. You also see costumes like that at Renaissance Faires and Comic Con.

THAT'S HER!!! OMG Ginny how did you find it?????????

It wasn't a nude cruise. It was a run of the mill Carnival cruise. Her and her hubby were active board members when I first started on CC. It was the only time I have seen people asked to leave the dining room. He said that she looked beautiful and she shouldn't have had to leave. The ironic part is that many people agreed with the hubby. Shocked

I can see the hubby agreeing...that's his job. But the rest of the board? Laughing

I did a search using the terms "chain mesh" Twisted Evil

Were you actually on that cruise?

I do remember some of the guys on that thread thinking she should be allowed to stay, and asking where he had the dress made!

I posted the original thread that started the whole Chain Mail Dress debate. Laughing

I will paste my reply from Nick's "tacky thread" here...
-------------------------------------------------
OK I'll tell you the whole story as I remember it. (BTW, I didn't steal the pictures, Ginny found them online Laughing )

This couple sails on Carnival. They were regulars on the CC Carnival board. The husband MADE that chain mail dress for his wife. He was angry that the Carnvial Maitre D asked them to leave the dining room. He said she looked better than anything he saw on the ship.
He said the dress was heavy for her. But she has a "beautiful body" and deserved to wear it.

The person is still around...sailing on Costa next month.

What gets me is that in that same thread they were talking about a 'topless' deck on Carnival. WHAT??? I haven't heard of this before! I gather the same guys lamenting the closure of the 'topless' deck were the ones who wanted the wife to wear that dress...

Yes, Carnival's "F" deck - aka the Funnel Deck was the topless deck on the Carnival Ships. The deck was still open on the last Carnival cruise we were on (Aug 07) but they have since been closed.

See....this sign marked the entrance at the bottom of the stairs...no I didn't expose anything. affraid

Yea....I went topless on the topless deck on Carnival.
I had to go up there and check out the scenery...

There were a few topless women up there....but not many. I liked Orient Beach much better....

To be honest....I've seen more topless women just hangin' out on Princess ships.

Okay, my reaction went from OMG affraid to WHOA! Shocked Just glad I wasn't on the ship because my mouth would have been hanging open when I saw her! I have a feeling there were plenty of people on board that looked like these emoticons when she walked by.

We were on the Destiny in November & the Funnel deck was home to minature golf. It had a pirate theme & was really cute. We were on the Triumph last August with the kids on their first cruise & the Funnel deck was still labled as "Adult Only", so they never went up there. I went up on the first day on board as part of the standard tour of the ship & there weren't even any chairs up there.
