make a set based on a marine animal. nudibranchs, squids, whales, octopi, fish, sharks, anything!
gaudy, tacky, distasteful, whatever you want to call it - sometimes what others find to be aesthetically abhorrent can actually make an outfit look great (for instance, because of what it's been paired with, or if worn with humour and irony).
your task is to create an outfit using one (or more if you really want to) of the items i've included in this set: http://www.polyvore.com/oh_my_gaudy_contest/set?id=11356294
be fearless and creative! best of luck to all of you, i'm looking forward to the results.
