Every so often, I do a Google News search on the word “dragon” to find out what people are saying about dragons these days. A few topics pop up on a regular basis, and I’ll probably set aside my Dragons for Young People series temporarily (no time to read!) to look at some of those dragons in the news this upcoming week.
The weirdest thing I found tonight was a link to a tech blog article on dragon hoodies. I’ll point you to the original post to see the photos and descriptions, but suffice it to say that you’re about to discover a rather unique design with a choice of black or white-and-rainbow dragon hoodie, complete with wings, ears, spikes, and a tail.
Here they are: http://technabob.com/blog/2013/09/06/dragon-hoodies/
(^That’s my reaction–what’s yours?)
If I were still about fifteen years old, I’d eat it up and wear it. If I saw someone else wearing it on a special occasion, I’d think it was cute in a hilarious way. However, I’d give a funny look to anyone who casually wore it in public, and I’d never wear it myself (at least, not in front of people… wink). I noted with interest that it’s shown on a female model in both cases, leaving me wondering whether it is specifically marketed to women or if they just decided the female form would sell it to a wider crowd.
