Fashion Hell Poll Results!

The results are in!

And the winner of the most hideous, cringe-worthy fashion crime in Sookieverse with almost HALF the total vote is…..
His Purple Pansyness in Genie pants!

Quinn = Fashion FAIL.

I’m actually surprised – I thought Sookie would take the crown. But considering Quinn’s popularity around here *cough*, his victory might have been a tad predictable.

Eric came in second in his lycra teamed with a trenchcoat travesty.

The rest of the results are below.

That was lots of fun, I had such a giggle finding the pics and writing the posts.

Thanks for voting!


Last Day! Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #6

It’s the final day of Fashion Hell, and we’ve saved the best for last.

Don’t forget to vote at the end of this post!

Eric – The Infamous Orgy Scene (Living Dead in Dallas)
This is the stuff of Sookieverse legend and it really needs no explanation. But what the hell, we can never go here too many times right?

Hot pink spandex pants, complete with aqua swirls and a trenchcoat…on a 6″4 viking. I realise this will be a controversial inclusion. I know most of you love this scene. And I know he was playing dress-ups for a reason. But what we love about this outfit is what it says about Eric’s personality. The outfit itself? Admit it – no matter how hot he looks in your imagination dressed like that, you are deluding yourself. You are.

Although, I will admit that this outfit does do justice to the GP.
Oh yes.

Look at me with a straight face and tell me you fantasise about this.

Vote away and leave your reasons in the comments. Results will be up in a few days.


Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #5

On the second last day of Fashion Hell in Sookieverse, let’s take a walk down memory lane….and pull up a spot on the corner.

Sookie Does Josephine’s (Club Dead)

Sookie the Hooker strikes again with a fire engine red mini dress that barely covers her backside, with detachable long sleeves and red stillettos. Yes, you did read that right. Trying to find an image of something vaguely resembling this outfit on Google was hilarious – the search terms “red dress detachable sleeves” returned pages of forum posts of Sookie readers howling about this dress. That, and many, many sites peddling outfits for strippers. It seems Sookie’s hooker dress is quite versatile – I’ve now seen some very creative versions in mesh, lycra, sequins, vinyl, and leather.

One of the things I love about Sookie is how she can go from all class to trailer trash and back again, in the blink of an eye.

~ One of the women thought I looked like a high-priced whore. I decided that was a compliment. At least she thought I was expensive ~ Oh Sook, you make me LOL

Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #4

Today’s nominee has the dubious honour of being my anointed worst dressed character in Sookieverse. Everything this man puts on his back deserves ridicule and fingerpointing because it’s all just bloody shameful.

Quinn’s get ups are really something else. After much agonising trying to choose which of them is the worst, I give you…

Quinn – Oops! I thought this was an Arabian Nights Costume Party (All Together Dead)

The occasion: Russell Edgington’s wedding. But apparently Quinn missed the memo, because he doesn’t seem to realise he is attending a wedding. He thinks he’s going to some sort of fancy dress bash…or something. Deep scarlet “harem pants” – these are MC Hammer pants that gather at the ankle for those of you having trouble here – a wide gold belt, with his pants tucked into black leather boots. And…wait for it. NO SHIRT. Even though it doesn’t say so on the page, you can BET he has that stupid gold hoop in as well. You know it.

The most astounding thing about this outfit is that no one – including Sookie – seems to bat an eye. I can only conclude that Quinn’s garish fashion sense is nothing new to anyone at this wedding and they probably all take bets on what he’s going to show up in next.

His purple paisley first date outfit was one thing. His attempt to team a silk shirt with khakis and a tie for Jason’s wedding was borderline. But I can’t forgive genie pants. I will not.

Are we supposed to take this man seriously as a suitor? Are we supposed to believe Sookie would even want to be seen in public with this, let alone dry hump it?

This is one genie that should have stayed firmly plugged in the bottle.

Ali Baba called and he's missing his pants...

Tomorrow’s Victim – Sookie…again.

Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #3

It’s day 3 of the Fashion Hell in Sookieverse poll, and this one is just too good to save any longer.

I love you Eric, but I can’t let you off the hook for this. It’s just too 80’s tragic to ignore.

Eric – Sookie’s Amnesia Tell All (Dead as a Doornail)

I will allow Charlaine to describe Eric’s outfit in this scene, for maximum impact.

Eric’s hair was wet with rain and straggled over his shoulders in rattails. He was wearing a golden brown silk T-shirt and brown pleated trousers with a magnificent belt that was just barbaric: lots of leather, and gold, and dangling tassels.

Silk t-shirt? What the hell is going on with these men in silk t-shirts anyway? Quinn, Eric, Barry – I’ve never seen one in my life but I googled and these things are straight out of Miami Vice. It’s “golden brown”. Vampires don’t wear brown! NO Charlaine. And can you imagine a guy as tall as Eric in pleated trousers? That’s almost as bad as the time she put him in jeans with creases pressed down the front! And the belt! THE BELT! Dangling tassels and gold bits!? I couldn’t find a picture of anything that looked like this hideous belt as it was described. Nothing came close. Oh I could rant about this outfit forever it’s so awful.

Even after inflicting this vulgar assemblage on us, CH is not finished. Oh no. She completes her total decimation of Eric’s image with this little corker:

“You can take the man out of the Viking era, but you can’t take the Viking out of the man.”


For the record this outfit is getting my vote. I wish I could scrub my brain clean of this image forever.

This is a golden brown silk t-shirt, teamed with brown pants. What is this fuckery doing on my Viking??

Fashion Hell in Sookieverse – #2

Get set for more toe curling fashion disasters! It’s day 2 of the “Fashion Hell in Sookieverse” poll and today’s nominee is….

Bill – Grateful Gran’s Dead (Dead Until Dark)
So you show up at your girlfriends house in a Grateful Dead t-shirt and jeans. What’s so bad about that, right? It’s actually kind of funny for a vampire right? Bill, this was your big chance to show us that you actually do have a sense of humour. And then you walked inside, wearing that t-shirt to find your girlfriend screaming over HER GRANDMA’S MUTILATED DEAD BODY.

Fashion fail Bill. EPIC FAIL.

So does Mr Sensitive, New Age Boyfriend apologise to Sookie for his grossly inappropriate casual wear? Erm…no. Does he remove this shirt that went from slightly daggy to outright offensive in a matter of moments? Nuh-uh. Does he even acknowledge his monumental fashion faux pas? HELL no. No interest in redemption, our Bill. For anything really.

To be fair, Bill can’t be held entirely responsible since he had just gone home to get changed and didn’t know at the time Gran was dead (or at least I don’t think he knew…). But I will whip him for it anyway.

Bill listens to Kenny G in his car so he deserves what he gets.

Highly inappropriate attire for finding dead grandmothers

#1 – Sookie: When Maenads Attack


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.


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 have been warned!
