One Big Mix-Up

Tom Boddingham ordered a pair of custom novelty slippers from online retailer Monster Slippers. Tom, who's 6'7" and lives in the United Kingdom, ordered a size 14.5 for his left foot and 13 for his right. Unfortunately, something got lost in translation.
As the DailyMail article explains:

"When the 27-year-old ordered a special monster-design slipper to fit his oversized left foot, he was sent this size 1,450 one - because manufacturers failed to spot a decimal point.

He had requested a 14.5, as well as a smaller size 13 for his right foot. The pair cost 15.50.

However, manufacturers in China misread the measurement and accidentally made the whopping seven foot-long slipper, which was shipped to him along with the correct smaller size."

Funny story, but we here at Oddball smell a hoax.

As above.


We're most likely getting married outside, and around late morning. Even though it's a wedding...to me, a big white gown doesn't fit with the surroundings/situation.


There are another reason why I don't really want a big white gown either. I don't wear dresses very often but when I do I always buy quality. Wedding dresses seem to be too expensive for the quality they are. I would rather get a regular gown or dress for the same price as a wedding dress, because I think the quality would be better without the 200% mark-up the 'bridal' tag adds.


In fact, everyone wants to feel like a princess for that day. One of my firends suggested that buying a white dress online which will be much cheaper and with high quality. She has bought several dresses in the site. She told me that i can tailor my size and send it with order. Does anyone know how much it costs to get tailoring done not at the bridal salon? Or have any advice in purchasing overseas?


The price attracted me and i chose a wedding dress and an evening dress. The total price for the two dresses is lower than the price of a wedding dress in bridal salon.


I am planning to buy this white strapless wedding dress.




I also chose an evening dress and hope the dress will be with high quality as my friend described.
