Generally speaking, going out in public nearly nude isn’t acceptable. Even on the hottest days of the year, female nipples are still banned (much to everyone’s annoyance) and genitalia are an absolute no-no unless you want to get arrested for indecent exposure.
However, one woman named Jen Seidel has gone on a mission to push the boundaries of how little clothing a person can possibly get away with wearing. How? You ask. Well, it involves the use of some seriously impressive body art to create the illusion of wearing clothes.
Check out the video below to see Jen’s incredible mission in action:
In one social experiment, for example, Jen sent a model on a Tinder date nearly naked. Her date was completely oblivious to the fact that he’d gotten luckier than most people on a first date until she pointed out just how little clothing she was really wearing.
“I like your outfit,” the guy says, before almost realizing the truth, “for a few seconds, I thought you were naked.”
Jen also painted a model with one of her impressive creations and sent her into a mall, which resulted in some seriously priceless reactions from shoppers and clerks who got close enough to realize just how scantily clad she was.
Now, she, along with her daughter, have completed another social experiment which involved painting a model, Ali, with the illusion of a seemingly ordinary sportswear ensemble that consisted of blue leggings and a matching sports bra.
While some people who are body painted go completely nude under the paint, to slightly reduce the risk of arrest, the model was wearing nipple pasties and a thong to hide her modesty before she went out to do yoga in public.
The model is pictured below in the early stages of having her clothing painted on by Jen and her daughter:
As you can tell from this picture, the extremely talented artist puts a lot of detail into her creations to make them look as realistic as possible.
Personally, I think the lace crisscrossing up and down Ali’s legs is a very nice touch. Few sportswear outfits are as fashionable as this one.
Once her transformation was complete, Ali, armed with a yoga mat, went to the harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. She then began to strike a few poses, nearly nude, to see if any passers-by would realize what was really going on.
During the experiment, the vast majority of people didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary about Ali and simply went about their business.
However, when Jen began to question them about the woman doing yoga, asking, “What do you see different about her?” they finally clicked.
Taking a closer look, a guy said laughing, “Oh my God. What the hell? I thought it was an outfit!”
“Oh my God, I’m so dumb,” a young a woman said. “It’s paint.”
“What gave it away?” the camera operator asked.
“The butt,” a man replied as his partner laughed.
Despite pushing the boundaries of the amount of clothing that is socially acceptable to wear in public, thankfully, no one was offended by Jen’s experiment. They were simply surprised and amused.
In fact, one woman wanted to try it out for herself and asked Jen, “Can you do me?”
“We can do anybody,” she replied before the woman jokingly referred to how much body she’d have to paint because of her height.
So, would you have the (painted) balls to do this? Nope, me neither…
