Demodex Tardigrade Underpants

Durable backend for protection and fashion.
  [vote for,

Tardigrades are called water bears - but to Demodex, they are the size of a bear, if a bear were as small as a Tardigrade, and humans - considering themselves in the moment to be Demodices - shrank equivalently.

Therefore, domesticated herds of Tardigrades will be slaughtered and skinned; the hides beaten, cut into patterns and stitched together with polymerized benzine with regular Stone-Wales defects for flexibility, into very small and very durable boxer briefs with no legs that the Demodex can wear.

These can also be dyed in flourescent or glow-in-the-dark colors to suit the local fashion around your eyes, and could accentuate your mascara with very tiny flourescent specks.

       Bun for the title alone, if not more.   

       I put giant tardigrades in my novel but scientific research removed their planet sadly.   

       I am now in a perpetual state of doubt about the nature of follicle mite guts.

       //humans shrank equivalently.// Would zoology have more or less complexity than it does now? A bigger scale must give more degrees of freedom therefore a more complex range of species.

       Will they be changing these frequently? Will they lose them in the wash? Or are they dry-clean only?   

       If my demodex want to wear argyle, but I'm keen on pinstriping, what then?

       It would be extremely cool to stick a GFP gene - or a luciferase system - into Demodex, and see your skin light up.

       Actually, come to think of it, I might try GFP'ing my skin anyway.

       I looked into it, and realized yes you can buy glowing yeast for beer. But how do you put your skin in a petri dish so it can replicate enough until it is fully glowing?   

       It may just be spreading cream of demodex across your body, so you get at least one in every pore.

       I have some genome editing tools at my disposal, that would work either on Demodex or (possibly) on skin.
