This is cosplayer Sasha Trabane sporting a TARDIS dress with the TARDIS interior cleverly painted by Andy Coyle in between the pleats. Is that the correct terminology — pleats? Despite what I may have lead you to believe in the past, I’m not actually an expert on women’s fashion. Shocking, I know, it’s one of the very few categories I couldn’t run in Jeopardy. I’m joking, total fashionista over here. I’ll prove it — you lift your skirt and I’ll correctly identify the cut of underwear you’re wearing. “Nice try, pervert.” Dammit! A kid on the bus told me that would work.
Thanks to PYY, who knows I really only learned what the difference is between a dress and a skirt a few years ago.Related Posts:
This is a recently released mini-dress (~$ 105) and set of leggings (~$ 80) from Black Milk Clothing (of all of these other crazy ladywear things fame). Just a heads up about black milk though: DON’T F***ING DRINK IT. Brown milk? Go for it. Chocolate milk is my jam — I drink at least a half-gallon a day. Don’t believe me? Ask the checkout lady at the grocery store. She’s always, “Boy, you must have some strong bones!” And I’m all, “No osteoporosis for me, ma’am!” She always gets a chuckle out of that. Followed by a long, awkward silence where I pretend to read a tabloid or look at the candy.
Hit the jump for a bunch of closeups including the cut of the back of the leggings which I can only describe as ass-unflattering.
In the ongoing saga of Samsung v. Apple, an expert witness testified in court today essentially confirming everything Apple has asserted against Samsung in relation to design patents (so far — we just broke for lunch).
Apple is alleging infringement on four design-related patents. Two of them relate to the iPhone, one the iPad, and one on the icon grid layout of iOS. Setting the iOS patent aside for a moment, Apple’s lawyer walked Peter Bressler through each of Apple’s iPhone and iPad related design patents.
The patent expert, Peter Bressler, an adjunct associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania (and president of the Industrial Designers Society of America between 1989 to 1990) who has been called as an expert witness in seven different trials, affirmed everything Apple had originally accused Samsung of, claiming that about a dozen devices, including Samsung’s Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy Tabs, infringe Apple’s three patents.
Samsung has argued before that there is prior art with regards to the USD618,677 patent, which covers the flat front, rectangular shape, curved corners and speaker grill of the phone. Mr. Bressler explained the prior art argument and process:
The point of this process is to examine the prior art you can find. Whatever is most like the ’677 patent. You compare the patented design to the design in the closest prior art and try to determine the most significant differences.
With Samsung’s included prior art, images from a 2005 Sharp design, Bressler found enough difference to agree with Apple that the art has no bearing on Apple’s patent.
Apple’s counsel also asked about the back of the Galaxy S 4G, as an example, with regards to the ’677 patent. The Galaxy S 4G has a small hump on the back on both the top and the bottom, though according to Mr. Bressler, the back is not under consideration since the ’677 patent only covers the front of the device.
The conversation then moved to Apple’s trade dress claims. Trade dress centers more around the general aesthetic of a brand’s products that differentiate them in the market. Think McDonald’s golden arches. Apple is asserting one trade dress registration which covers both the iPad and iPhone’s distinctly “Apple” design.
Mr. Bressler argued that there are plenty of alternative designs to both the phone and the tablet that would still achieve the same functionality.Related Posts:
This a smattering of the 600+ cosplay photos Norman Chan from over at Tested.com took during this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. I posted 25 random ones after the jump, but you should really go peruse the entire gallery. I just like, threw a dart at a dartboard and posted whatever pictures I hit. No, no I didn’t. I dropped the dart and unthinkingly tried to catch it between my legs and wound up sinking the dart tip DEEP into my thigh. No lie, when I pulled it out, blood squirted to the ceiling. Just kidding, I really did see a friend do that once though. Well, not really a friend, just an acquaintance. I’m not hanging out with some bleeding loser!
Hit the jump for more, but be sure to check out the entire gallery if you are like, into this.
You know what sucks about dress pants? Everything. They’re poorly shaped, rigid, uncomfortable, don’t breathe, and cause a dutch-oven effect that make your balls sweat and stick to your boxers. Ugh, my penis is shivering just thinking about it. Kidding, I’m swinging him around in circles because I’m wearing athletic shorts and no underwear. Enter Betabrand’s $ 90 Dress Pant Sweatpants, they’re SURPRISE!: sweatpants that look like dress pants. *slapping ass* GO GET YOUR COMFY ON, SON *coughing* and some f***ing deodorant!
Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures of the casual Monday-Friday.Related Posts:

Can’t have enough Androids in your life? Well, here’s another one! Alternately known as the Knight or the Speedy, HTC’s upcoming Android device has made a couple of premature photo appearances in an effort to help sell some cases for its future self. The guys at HTCPedia report they have all the cases in their imagery in stock and confidently identify the Speedy Knight as a 3.7-inch QWERTY slider, while the phone’s UI and rear inscription leave no doubt about it running HTC’s Sense skin for Android. The likeliest scenario for this phone’s retail future is that it’ll be dubbed the EVO Shift 4G and exploit Sprint’s WiMAX airwaves, leaving the only unresolved issue as a one-word query: when?
