Swipe File: Evangelion And Victoria's Secret

 

Anime News Network reports that at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held this week,  Jourdan Dunn was wearing a suit that seemed rather familiar. And very comparable to the plugsuit worn by Rei Ayanami in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Has Victoria’s Secret become… cosplay? Certainly there are a number of cosplayers I know who swear by them…

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
