Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #1

I’m re reading the Sookie books at the moment and it struck me (not for the first time) that these books quite possibly contain some of the worst crimes against fashion ever committed to print. There can be no excuse for some these hideous ensembles. None. This is baffling, when you consider that the target audience of this series is largely made up of young women. And young women generally notice these things.

In honour of the sheer awesomeness that is Charlaine Harris’ dress sense, I’ve compiled a list of the worst fashion offences in the Southern Vampire Mysteries. I’ll post one every day and at the end we’ll vote.

So without further ado, let’s kick off the catwalk catastrophes with…

1. Sookie – Maenad Attack (Living Dead in Dallas)
Sookie the Hooker at her trashy trailer park best! Low cut. Lace up sides. Stretchy blue fabric…jeans that Jon Bon Jovi would have worn with pride circa 1986. Team this with a blue and white check crop top that stops “two inches below the bra”, add a little blue bow to the ponytail, and you’re seeing why this atrocity heads up the list. The maenad obviously thought this was as vile as we did since she hunted Sookie down in the woods to completely trash it. We all owe her tribute, just for that.

Bill apparently likes these jeans, and with his fondness for ripping Sookie’s clothes off one handed I guess I can see why. He actually suggested she wear these things to go see Eric.

Bill is stupid.

This is as close as I could find. These jeans were so bad even the internet wants nothing to do with them.

Tomorrow’s victim – Bill.

    He probably suggested she wear them so that Eric found her as distasteful as we did reading about it. Honestly, I’m surprised that the books are set in present day. The book fashion makes it feel more like circa 1983, minus the fluoro.

      I think he suggested it because he wanted Eric to see Sookie in revealing clothing and basically taunt him with what he couldnt have. But when i read about this outfit couldnt believe it. It was like a britney spears reject outfit or something! And Sookies red dress with the detachable sleeves was probably just as bad.

    Well technically, Eric did fluoro lycra in LDID. Sad.

My ramblings on the Sookie Stackhouse books, and the HBO series True Blood. Everyone I know is already half crazed with my plot and character assassinations, conspiracy theories, theme explorations and general obsessing, so now I'm going to share it all with you. Spoilers and Viking worship are rampant...you have been warned!
