The Bumbys

The Bumbys
The Bumbys wear wigs, masks, and offer “A Fair and Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance“. They are also taking over the fashion industry, and bringing in crowds like Britney brings the crazy. The anonymous duo“Gill Bumby” and “Jill Bumby” – are performing artists armed with manual typewriters and ingenuity. The name of the game? Stand in front of them, and you get a wittier alternative to a Clinton and Stacy style assessment, eg.

You have an Izzy Blow – but non-suicidal – super pretty face vibe. Your look is killing it today. The way I picture you is in Lula magazine, floating on a sea of chiffon and blowing bubbles in a rainstorm. Turbans equal difficult-to-pull-off, but today, and probably usually, you are a queen of awesome.

While the idea reigns creatively, their success seems to confirm the superficial relevance of others’ judgement. Would you take part?
