n October 2, a civic-minded performance group called Coltura is holding a . Actors outfitted in white leotards will play "gasoline ghosts," ethereal beings addicted to Texas tea. During performances, the ghosts haunt gas stations, waft smog into their nostrils, carry around gas nozzles with severed hoses, and otherwise clown around with carbon. They remind us that our love of oil lasts long after our own deaths. For the funeral, they'll carry a casket from the Space Needle all the way to downtown.
Her followers took to the image’s comments section to say that the photo looked doctored. The photo shows Copeland sitting in a white leotard and ballet shoes, her hand in a soft fist at her clavicle. “This photo does not reflect recent images of Misty. Photoshopped too much. Are we still celebrating Misty as a fabulous ballerina or just another celeb on a publicity photo shoot?!” one commenter said.
At the 1976 Olympics, Nadia Comaneci competed in a plain white leotard with Adidas-style side-piping in the colors of the Romanian flag—red, yellow, and blue. Her leotard, though not perfectly skin-tight, highlighted the straight edges of her prepubescent 14-year-old body.
One thing I found kind of disappointing is that these companies don't seem to carry ivory or cream colored leotards. You may be able to dye your own white leotard a shade of cream, but I'm not sure how that would turn out since I'd imagine dye wouldn't adhere to nylon or Lycra very well. I'd be concerned about uneven pigment dying.
