in 1 of my classes, we were put into 2 groups. each group has to come up w/ & put together a window display to be graded as a project. we have a random window in the building just for this project. my group spent an entire class trying to come up w/ an idea, but could not agree on anything (which is to be expected when you have a group of about 10 or so w/ lots of different ideas). our teacher reminded us that we have to be able to put it together w/ stuff we have & cheap stuff we may have to buy. we couldn't agree on a product, which is really the 1st step. she told us to set up a display to show off a product, so i suggested lingerie. i have a small collection of a bustiers, corsets, baby dolls, & other lacy things. i figured that there are lots of window displays that do lingerie, & that it probably hasn't been done before in the past. when i suggested it, everyone in my group looked at me like i was insane, especially when i said i could provide most if not all of it. (there are a number of mannequins w/ some other props that the teacher provides). 1 girl even made the comment that she wanted to be able to put this project in her portfolio & wanted to do something that wouldn't look trashy. LINGERIE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE TRASHY! we could have done a burlesque theme, or a slumber party (i have a silk robe that could go over some of the stuff). the thing that bothered me was that after suggesting this & telling them about how i had a small collection of stuff to use, they all gave me this look like, "ok, we know what you do in your spare time." surely i'm not the ONLY person there who has at least a few pieces of lingerie. luckily, 1 girl thought we could use some of the corsets w/ pants & do something like that, but no 1 else liked that idea, so i had to drop it.
