In this article, we’ll carry out a comprehensive review of and also tell you some interesting facts about the critically acclaimed comic ‘Canadian Royalty: Their Lifestyles and Fashions’. The comic is not just a big favorite of comic critics, but is also extensively loved by comic readers throughout the world. Despite the fact that Canadian Royalty comic is grotesque when it comes to both its execution as well as concept, it also implements certain interesting concepts, such as overlapping of the science fiction with the weird, and depiction of prosthetic technological relationships with great ease and aplomb.
Anyone who is even slightly familiar with the late Alexander McQueen’s fashion sense, would know how fashion can possibly be used as a sculptural art, central to the avant-garde performances. However, the part that fashion design plays in the technological development is often lesser known and lesser recognized. For instance, if we refer to the text of Nicholas de Monchaux’s 2011 creation ‘Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo’, we would get to know how Playtex played a critical role in the creation of space suits that were used in NASA’s Apollo missions.
Now, when it comes to the Canadian Royalty comic, the readers are treated to weird fictional accounts of social and physical trappings of Canadian royal families, including how each member of these families is encased in his/her own fashion, as an integral part of the monarchial ritual.
As absurd as you may find the account becoming, the creator of Canadian Royalty comic does a phenomenal job when it comes to outlining a world which embraces fashion not like some simple accessory, but in the form of a prosthetic, both for the people’s social standings as well as their physical being. Monarchs can be seen entirely dependent on their outfits for their survival. Furthermore, these outfits function as proxies for their evidently featureless faces (even more evident in the appropriately bizarre illustrations and the grotesque descriptions) and do the work of social signifiers, highlighting people’s identities.
Each one of the illustrations of the comic is very bizarre, minimal in some instances, baroque-like in others. The comic creator’s style shines forth and serves the narrative in the most brilliant manner.
Canadian Royalty comic and the Alexander McQueen’s fashion sense both are similar in the manner that they provide convincing and stunning examples of how people’s clothes can actually function as technological prosthetics – not only in a metaphorical way, but also physically. And to anyone who feels unconvinced and believes that these are absolute and singular concoctions, we’d like to say put on a pair of highest heels and let us know if it is still the case!
