We spend a lot of time with our product, surrounded by it, cave-like, in the BSC studio, and because we're not fair parents (okay, Heathermary might be), we do play favorites, and we do obsess over special pieces with complete disregard for others. Does that make us bad people? Don't answer that.
This week, we're spotlighting Batpin, our fluffy, potentially obese mascot's favorites. His taste veers towards long naps behind our heads, hissing at puppies, pawing at crickets, and getting his butt slapped. Buttpin, er, Bratpin, er Batpin, gave us an exclusive peek inside his style theory:
"When I'm getting dressed, comfort is key. I'm a couch potato, baby. I need something that will show off my curves without obscuring my best feature- can you insert a shot of my rear end here?- and because I'm what the rest of my pussy posse calls an egomaniac, I prefer a look that says, 'I am Batpin, hear me roar.' Show me the Large and in Charge sweatshirt and I will show you a catwalk. The Fat-Free sweatshirt and the Handstand cap are for when I eat Fancy Feast, watch kitty-robics, and take selfies, simultaneously, because #irony."
Our interview was cut short by Dr. Doolittle's therapy appointment with a runaway (flyaway?) cockatoo, but alas, that's okay, because 1) we have firsthand reports that Batpin's fond of cross-dressing in coordinated leopard (faux) fur and Prada heels (plus socks) during the wee hours, which he wouldn't tell us anyway, and 2) we need no more verbal hashtags inserted into real life sentences.
