HELP!!! I made something and I don't know what it is!

I've done it again!  I've created something that defies definition!  It may be really cool!  It may be a really bad idea!  I just don't know.  So I hope that some of my readers and followers on FB will chime in and give me a clue.

It's a variation on Wrapsody!  It's a lighter-weight version, still crocheted, but it's complete with about 25 holes, all of which allow the wearer to experiment and create designs by varying where you put your arms and head.  Too crazy for most people?   It may be!  But then again, who knows?  It could become a new sensation.  I'm including here the dozen photos I took this morning - each one with different configurations.  Truly the possibilities are endless with this one.

I need to "test-drive" it to see how people react.  That could happen on Saturday or Sunday - or maybe even tomorrow as I work at Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts.  It's constructed of expensive yarn from Feza plus a few others thrown in, and it took about a week to complete.  So....if I decide to sell these, the price tag will be higher than my usual price point.

Please take a look at all these photos and give your feedback, impressions, good or bad.  I'll keep it for myself if the results are not stellar and see how others react when seeing it worn in person.

Thanks in advance for your input!

I like the idea alot! For me, I would need some color. I like the idea of knitting or crocheting some funky yarns in other colors and weaving them in and out of the holes. Just a thought. I think it really has potential once we define it!

It's gorgeous, and bloody brilliant! And you could outfit the best dressed octopus in town! Seriously, it's luscious, and Ij ust love the idea - one could adapt something like that for toddlers who tend to shove parts of themselves in any hole they can find :) If I copy all your work (for personal use only!!) please consider it a tribute and not plagiarism, I love it all so much1

I love it! however, for me to better evaluate it, a different more photographic friendly colour would be better.
very cool!
