You could buy special suits in stores that are filled with dirt. Plastic on the inside, dirt in the middle, and a biodegradable clear substance on the outside. The dirt can come in different colors and is filled with the water and nutrients the seed inside will need to grow. Your choice of roses, daises, poppies, or petunias. All flowers short-stemmed.

       A cheaper alternative - and for those who can't stand the weight of a full suit - soil filled boots, together with your choice of climbing plants!

       I can't find any online pictures of it, but David Byrne (formerly of the Talking Heads) had a suit made of living grass. (You may have seen him wearing it on David Letterman once.)

       Good scary read while you're waiting for the roses to grow: Jeff Noon, "Pollen".

       One could have a Chia-hat with that ensemble. You'd be a big hit whenever salads are served.

       So THAT'S where Tuxedo Mask gets all his roses.

       I once saw an incredible piece of art at the EAG. It was a large wall hanging made completely out of rose petals and little pindot silver pins attaching them that swept down to the floor and gave (me) the impression of a beautiful old movie sequined dress with a swish swish kaklink kaklinky train. As you entered and left the small room it was in (one with a balcony "of sorts") you could smell it. Amazingly beautiful. Esp. for the EAG (mostly junk).   

       I like performance/conceptual art + I liked this piece = I like your idea.

       To water and fertilize your suit you have to pee in your pants etc.? I'm weired, but not that weired.
