(related to technique)
Choosing what to wear for the occasion
can make all the difference - functionally and aesthetically.
First of all, all eyes will be on you (at some point), so you should dress
to kill (no pun intended), and, depending on technique, you might be on TV,
in newspapers, even books.
If you have ever said to yourself that you wouldn't want to be caught dead
in some outfit, think about that carefully right now. Everyone will know you
had time to plan your outfit. Most important, choose wardrobe (and
accessories) that work for you, and of course, your technique!
Without exception, photos will always be taken, afterwards, which
should make you stop and think about what to wear (and perhaps how to keep
it on). If you have any
intention of impressing TV and newspaper reporters (who've seen it all), you
have to dress for the part (or parts).
Bright, flashy colors will help your
corpse (or specific body parts) stand out on the Nightly News, plus they make it so much easier for
the paramedics to locate your body (or parts).
Depending on how you may be found (and the number of pieces, which may just
be a guess), you can begin to see how one small item, perhaps a bright
yellow glove, sock, or even underwear, may make all the difference -
especially if found far from (and not blending in with) the yellow crime
Potentially millions of viewers will see
your post-mortem photos on TV and in newspapers (as well as people at the
Police station), so don't be caught looking less than your very
best. Why do you think so many corpses are shown covered?
On that note, police and paramedics are
people too. Try not to ruin their day by keeping yourself relatively
together (in your choice of clothing), and by choosing an outfit that won't
end up falling off or apart on you. The fashion outcome of some techniques
will be easier to forecast than others, but do give all of this some careful
Clothing and Technique go hand in
Technique and clothing are so
inter-dependent that you cannot separate one from the other. For example,
dark colors are fabulous for stepping out into traffic at night, while red
is the obvious choice if you plan on ending up covered in that color.
If you expect to be discovered intact, then anything goes... you might even
borrow a special outfit from a friend (since you know you'll be able to
On the other hand, if your method involves severe bodily mutilation (can
happen), something tight-fitting (like a wet suit) is a must. If you really
want to make clean-up a snap (thoughtful approach), try to get your hands on
a body bag (without being too obvious as to need), and, if possible, zip up
before you go. If your technique involves any sort of gas and flame, clothes
