Lightning

I love thunderstorms. They make me feel like my battery is recharging. I feel all warm and tingly when I see a jagged flash of light and hear the crash of thunder seconds behind. So, of course I love lighting in fashion. There are surprisingly few instances of lightning print clothing, so I will show you my favorites. 

I have wanted a lightning bolt t-shirt ever since I saw Jesse's in Breaking Bad.



But, unfortunately, this shirt is no longer for sale anywhere I can find. And nothing I have found matches its epic cool factor. 

Lightning Pattern Sound Activated Light LED Equalizer T-Shirt on Amazon

This shirt seems pretty awesome. I wish the LED was a little larger. And would I remember to take it off before I washed it? Would the batteries be a pain? Anyone ever worn clothing with batteries in it before?

Lightning Print Leggings
I saw these tights in a booth in a street-faire in the Netherlands. I almost got them, but the purple is just so bright. I really wish I could find a pair in black.
Kids Lightning T-rex
A dino and lightning? Could it be any more epic? I always get jealous of little boy clothes. They should make all little boy clothes in grown-up women's sizes. Seriously. I am always jealous whenever I go into a clothing store that carries stuff for little boys. Not just the t-shirts, they also get the coolest light-up shoes and many-pocket pants.

I just found these as inspiration for your lightning dress projects. I have no idea if they are even made anymore.

I am very happy there have been plenty of thunderstorms this summer. I am hoping for lots of thunder-snow this winter!

  1. OMG Mr. Fern loves Breaking Bad and watched it diligently until the finale - I had a hard time watching it because it made me too sad. Same with Walking Dead lol. These would so suit you. I especially <3 the kaftan! I've never bought led shirts before, but the boys tried to get me to. Maybe for Halloween so I can see them more easily!

    1. You gotta tell me how the LEDs work out if you get them. I stopped watching Walking Dead in the middle of the second season. I thought it was pretty cool before.... then it got too repetitive for me. I guess the main thing I like was the creative zombie makeups. The well one was the best!

    1. I've never gotten around to making a bloglovin. I'm sure this blog's coauthor KMFern will, though, if she hasn't already.

    1. If you ever find it you gotta tell me! I was beginning to think it was just made for the show. If that guy has it, too, then it must be out there somewhere! Rock on.
