Few things are more lovely to behold than a ballerina twirling en pointe; but most of us cannot do it. The Swirly Twirly Costume rotates around the body of the wearer, giving the impression that the wearer is dancing en pointe. Made of light, colourful materials, it sparkles and delights. Wonderful. Beautiful.

       Does it run on battery, gasoline or solar power?

       I envisioned a steam boiler.   

       Genevieve Barbie has one of these costumes, don't ask me how I know that, I just do and now so do you.

       Isn't the game given away by your head still facing forward? Or is your body actually rotating as well, but in a secretly clumping way?

       wouldn't some kind of motorised rotating plate on the ball of your shoe be easier? (not that ease is the mark of a good half-baked idea)

       sure enough Genevieve Barbie... But as this is not widely known to exist I give it a +

       Is it just me, or does [Harry Mudd] always end his ideas with two positive one-word sentences about them? Interesting. Telling.

       no, [globes]. see link. although Mr. Mudd does seem to have a certain civil engineering bent to him, doesn't he?

       If sufficiently weighty, the Swirly Twirly costume might also improve one's balance via gyroscopic action.

       But what about precession?
normzone, Aug 22 2007
  

       Several swirly twirlies could have one down the street.
