Windswept and Exotic Device

Keep that adventurous mystique at all times

This device is actually a fan, cleverly mounted so that it blows into your face, thus making your hair billow in its breeze - giving you the appearance of a race car driver, ski champion, or other fast paced action sport hero. Attached to ergonomic prongs protruding from your shoulders and chest area, you can saunter into your next business meeting or church service and reinforce that certain 'something' that others have been known to comment on.

Goggles are also a good touch, with bits of dirt, blood or engine grease smeared across the cheek bones.

       some of us are lucky enough for that "dragged-through-a-hedge-backwards" effect with no help whatsoever.

       I'll bring my 10 yard long silk aviator scarf!

       Yes please! I'm more likely to wear one of these than to become a pilot or racing driver.

       But would the device not block one's face? Perhaps a vaccuum device mounted on the back of the head would produce the same effect.

       Add a halo and some sort of slomo-type effect and you've got yourself a hit. Maybe some gardenia scented perfume. The sound of angels singing. And a smoke machine.

       "...you can saunter into your next business meeting..."   

       I can just imagine your bosses wig getting sucked off his head and into the fan then shreded to pieces and blown onto you...then you can break out a can of polish and shine his head with that 10ft aviator scarf you're wearing. Just for that image in my head +
