Sexy Silver Getups for Kicking Ass in the Thunderdome

Sexy Silver Getups for Kicking Ass in the Thunderdome

| On 03, May 2013

When I was a younger lass, I went to a wee festival called Burning Man. Burning Man was a magical time of being awesome, but most awesome of all was that some fellow festival goers had gotten there a few days in advance and set up a Thunderdome theme camp. Y’all….I love the movie Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in a very real and intimate way. Am I going to marry Thunderdome? Of course not! Don’t be silly! Thunderdome would probably want me to take it’s last name, and we know I’m not into that. But would I buy Thunderdome a steak wrapped in lobster and make sweet love to it? PROBABLY! That’s why I was so stoked to be up close and personal to a real live Thunderdome all those sweaty years ago.

It was rad. Do you know what a Thunderdome looks like? It’s basically a giant jungle gym type of thing where people go in and get all berzerker and kill each other in Bartertown.

BLAZAMO! THUNDERDOOOOME!BLAZAMO! THUNDERDOOOOME!

And the Queen Motherfuckin’ Bee of Thunderdome is Aunty Entity, jabronis! Played by Tina Turner in all her awesome glory, Aunty Entity is bad as hell. Is she a villain, is she a hero? It’s subjective! It’s art! ART. She loves Bartertown, so, ya know, that’s something. And she has an adorable tiny crossbow that I’m sure she uses to like, eat cocktail wienies and shit. Well, I would use it to eat cocktail wienies and chunks of pineapple and like, melon wrapped in prosciutto. So what’s a girl or boy to do when they feel the spirit of Aunty Entity’s bad-assery welling up inside them like some hot, boiling Master Blaster water? Be awesome and just go for the look.

Aunty Entity goes fast, skips the helmet. #soulmates

Aunty Entity doesn’t wear floral, lace, leather or gold. Aunty Entity is a chain mail wearing warrior, but that shit is expensive, so let’s go with silver and call it even!

This slinky silver top will grab your body as you grab the rails of the THUNDERDOOOOME!

And if you like more of a breeze in all that desert heat, you can always go with the ‘1/3 of a shirt’ option. It’s getting hot! Ya gotta let that belly button breeeaaathe!

Whole shirts? Pfffft. That's SO 2012. Whole shirts? Pfffft. That’s SO 2012.

How am I gonna kick through walls and push on the pedal of my sweet-ass dune buggy without a little bit of metal

And these are some straight up next-level-realness

Next Level RealnessThunderdome doesn’t care about your comfort. Thunderdome has no feelings.

Probably gonna wanna slap some horns on your head

This horn and bone steez will keep the sun from grilling into your dome, but can it protect you from Master Blaster

And some days you just want your headpiece to not distract from your carefully coiffed ‘do

M-O-O-N spells moon. M-O-O-N spells moon.

This one is good because you can also use it when you’re feeling like the Empress from NeverEnding Story

SEBAAAASTIAN!SEBAAAASTIAN!

You probably aren’t going to carry a crossbow around on the daily, but you can weeeaaaar one! Coz why not?

Your happy glad hands can get in on the action, too.

‘Remebuh! This is Thunderdome. Death is listening…and will take the first man that screams‘. But not really! Because Thunderdome was a movie and isn’t real, even at Burning Man.

Do you love Beyond Thunderdome? Are you a fan of Aunty Entity? Do movies ever inspire your fashion? Hit me up in the comments and tell me about it!
