Excerpt from Celeterra:
Altijd was wearing a ridiculous pair of tight black trousers, with big translucent yellow rhombs. His shirt seemed to be made out of some shiny crimson acrylic fabric. The buttons were open all the way down to his belly, revealing the scanty hair on his chest. The heels of his green and brown shoes were at least 2 inches high. Vance wondered how he managed to walk in them, let alone use them for dancing.
Vance opened his closet. New items had replaced all the clothing that had been there the morning before. Instead, he found a tight pair of cerulean trousers, with zigzag waves of ginger and pink, a huge white belt of imitation leather with a golden buckle and a shirt of the same material as what Altijd was wearing, but with scarlet and olive stripes. It had big imitation silver buttons. The shoes, on the bottom shelf, had flat soles and big bulges at the toes. The leather was black at the front and white at the heels.
Vance held up the garments, a look of despair on his face. Altijd laughed.
“Don’t worry Vance, you will look as hip as beans! Put it on! No, no, don’t try to put them away – you can’t go out tonight without the right attire.”
Vance closed the door in front of Altijd’s face and slipped into his new clothing, cursing. He looked at himself in the mirror – ridiculous! He was only doing this for his friend, if Altijd had not been waiting for him outside, he would have stayed at home!
Together, they hurried to the party. The tent was already full of people, all dressed as quaint as the two newcomers. There was Samantha, wearing a white Lycra bodysuit, with big red buttons and a purple belt; John (who had broken his neck in a riding accident), dressed in red jeans and a black shirt, with a pink cowboy hat and big knee-high boots. Eric had come in a shiny pair of bronze trousers, apparently made out of plastic foil, on top of which he wore a white shirt printed full with small red snakes.
