Carpet slippers

Well-made durable slippers in which the uppers are made from carpet.

Sold in carpet retailers; buy carpet for your room, get matching slippers included.

Watch your feet "vanish".

Very difficult to find once removed, if left on the matching floor covering.

       I think it would work better if your carpet was a chaotic pattern of feet (level of hairyness as required...).

       We tried that, but the broken bones, blood, and toenail fungus were too much of an attraction to infection.

       Shag?   

       Get off me! I'm just asking about your slippers.   

       I know you're joking, but this would be a very clever novelty sales bonus for carpet stores to give out.   

       "Buy today and get your carpet matching slippers so it appears that you're walking on bloody stumps instead of feet."   

       Might want to re-word that but, yea, really good novel marketing idea. Seriously.

       Why not a matching carpet 3-piece suit and hat? and tie And corona-mask. And gloves. For all the family. And all the furniture as well. And the wallpaper. And the ceiling. And the curtains. Have I forgotten anything?

I have definitely seen a YouTube video of guys wearing clothes that exactly match the carpet (in a casino, IIRC). A quick Google failed to find it, but there were other hits of similar matchingness.

       There's a guy who disguises himself as the driver's seat of his car, and then patronizes drive-thru takeaways with an action cam discreetly placed on the passenger side ... the staff's reactions are hilarious.   

       Of course, when autonomous self-driving cars become commonplace and owners send them out unoccupied to collect stuff, such pranks will no longer be possible.
