Is your fashion sense daring enough to include clothing that looks like human flesh or other body parts? Just like practically every other odd thing you can imagine, it's possible to acquire human flesh products you can actually wear or otherwise put on display. In most cases, these items are merely designed to look like the real deal, though there are items made of actual human flesh available for purchase for the truly hardcore.
Serial killer Ed Gein provided the inspiration for most of these pieces. Gein made lampshades, clothing, and other oddities out of human flesh. There's also a long history of skin use in binding books, making ritualistic masks, and even providing the material for genetically modified handbags.
In the words of Jurassic Park's Dr. Ian Malcom, they "were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should." Whether these clothing items should ever have been invented will be the eternally unanswerable question, but those looking for quirky and macabre fashion choices have plenty of options.
