Actual chameleon suit

A suit made up of trained chameleon's clinging onto to a mesh suit.. The aforementioned chameleons have natty little periscopes to see what's behind you. They enjoy two days off a week and all the insects they can eat, in order to mollify the animal's rights lobby. I also propose an animal's left lobby, in the interests of symmetry.

Suit has disclaimers against chameleons falling comatose due to excess heat and humidity just as you make it into the shower room of the gender of your preference and/or for getting knocked down on pedestrian crossings as none of the drivers can see you.

Theoretically the aforementioned periscopes could be fitted with optional lcd screens to show swatches of cloth to the chameleons and so you could do herringbone to prince of wales check at the flick of a switch, or congratulate PETA members in the street with the part of the suit they can't actually see as mink, whilst a fellow conspirator take a back shot of you and PETA member shaking you by the hand and sell it to the newspapers.

       I thought this would be an actual suit for an actual chameleon.

       //and and sell it to the newspapers// I think a chameleon suit is what PETA would bring against you if you tried that.
