1. We were gold to the slavers.

 

(Sorry) the dress was always blue.

18. I won an argument about it, or so I thought.

 

Now apparently they used two dresses, say's my friend. I keep telling her how blind she is, but she keeps coming up with conspiracies. It's not even a cute dress.

19. You change the lighting on a picture and the color looks different

The one you posted on FB looked blue. The one in this thread looks white, but they aren't the same photo.

20. It's crazy. No matter what, once I saw blue. I just couldn't see it as white anymore.

 

Some photos are much bluer and some really washed out. I think I posted the one from the tumblr. Stupid dress.
Does the one in the thread look white to you? Shit!! It looks medium blue to me. No wonder this has been going on since the Llama escape.

4. See: What color is this dress? All over the internet and media today

At the root of things I think it shows that color is in the brain of the beholder so an illusion.

6. I argued with my friend about this last night

 

I had decided it was blue. She says I'm stupid and blind the dress is white and gold. I got up this morning, and was like told you so!! It did look white at first glance but then it was clearly blue. I never saw white again. It was very upsetting.

Part of me is bothered that I knew the science on this beforehand... Apparently I read a lot of Dawkins.

9. I see why people saw white at first.

 

I saw white too then I scrolled back up. Not white at all. Have no idea how I saw white at all ever. It just looks bluer and bluer. My cousin says it's a hoax and they used a different dress. Keeps calling me about it.

11. I blame Tumblr, instagram and twitter.

 

I was worried about the llamas (they got caught )and then here comes the phantom dress. I have younger cousins who obsess over social media. So they stress me out with bullshit and get me going. I even got my five year old into it. She said blue immediately.

12. ...My tumblr is full of cheesy pulp and fantasy art.

 

...

And yet, there it is. Staring at me. Mocking me... nestled in between Kirmit the Vampire taking down Vincent price... and Conan.





I hold that my tumblr is a thing of majesty

Very nice. That stupid picture is everydamn where now. I wish they would stop, but Taylor Swift said something. Now it's cool. The ugliest dress in the universe.

15. Few blacks have anything approaching black skin.

I see a great range from deep chocolate all the way to golden brown.

Therefore, the dress is gold and cream.
