Another fine native american dress! Only $10,000...

OMG! That's all I have to say; having a great grandmother whom was half Nez Perce, not Nez Pierce, this dress is the worse impersonation of a native garment I have ever laid my eyeballs on. Why are people so darned ignorant.

After looking at it again through the link here, I just decided it looks as if someone threw up on some old green fabric...

I try really hard to not make negative statements about others, unless really necessary. What is that dress, believe it or not I've seen things more strange. Whoever pays $10,000 for that, let them know I have a swamp for sale. I really hope no one gets taken advantage of.

Do you think maybe it just didn't photograph well?

Yeah, I agree with the previous post before yours. It really looks like an old camp-fire girl's dress from many decades ago. I can just imagine some old white guy finding this in his mother's child-hood belongings, and seeing his eyes light up with dollar signs, cuz he thinks he hit the jackpot. It's either that, or some A-hole actually knows it's crap, and is trying to load it off on some stupid person as authentic!

Whatever it is, I really can't imagine. I just hope no one gets taken advantage of. Let's hope for the best. But, you're probably correct, and some one spent their time wearing it at summer camp.

Wowee!!!

ROFLOL, I just saw that dress and found this thread. First thing I thought was who ripped off the Camp Fire Girl. As for photographing well, no amount of trick photography or brush-ups will help in my opinion. I really hope no one buys it. Maybe we should all watch for someone to bid and send the bidder a message with photo examples of real and not real. HMMMM??????????????

$10,000 Bucksin Dress

This person should be ashamed of themselves. If they really want to be NDN I think we should make them run through the Gauntlet for this type of crap.

Question

I contacted them when this first came on bid to tell them that it is an old Campfire Girl Dress from the early 20th. century. The response was that is expert Antique dealer or dealers has told them it was early Nez Perce. I really does not know.....so I also told him to do a Google search and look at some real dresses to find out.

Angie Bunz?

Is she the gal who keeps putting up her cloth Northern dress up in Ebay? I keep seeing the same ol dress in there made to look like buckskin but is all cloth, either she has more then one of these dress's or just keeps selling the same one... OR ARE you just making fun of someone named Angie Bunz?? I am sooo confused now!! LOL!

It looks like that dress is from one of the Campfire Girls or Girl Guides from the 30's when everyone could be an Indian but us! See the little campfires on the front and the triangular patches like on Boy Scout uniforms. Pretty bad trying to pass that off as authentic.
