Tom Swift and His Flying Lab

Tom Swift and His Flying Lab
Victor Appleton II; Sampson Low, 1954

"For the love of aerodynamics, Tom" Bud said, finally unable to restrain his curiosity any longer "just what are you doing?"

Tommy apparently knows how to carefully apply makeup. No smudges or fuzzy lines. Maybe a bit too much rouge, though. Just saying.

There are other colors of lipstick besides just basic red, Tom.

I've always enjoyed seeing green lipstick as it makes the lips look like they have gotten horribly moldy. And that quite appeals to my warped sense of humor.

As I suspect - young Tom Swift is a "friend of Dorothy", for who else would sport a strawberry blond crewcut and striped Breton fisherman's t-shirt? And I bet he wears loafers, too . . .

Tom DOES look awfully, awfully clone-ish. You can just bet all his clothes are designer labels, the real things and not made-in-indonesia knockoffs.

Is young master Thomas actually an android? As he seems to be outside in space without wearing a spacesuit and suffering no ill effects. Cmdr. Data of Star Trek:TNG can do that as well. A flesh-and-blood person would turn into a yucky mess.

Yes, of course you're right, Miss Thunderpussy and Mr Rubber Ducky. Tom WAS a friend of Dorothy and until his recent death, ran a special interest bar in Ibiza, wearing a matelot's shirt everyday of his working life. Clothes by Jean-Paul Gaultier, make up by Helena Rubinstein.
He rarely talked of his early years in space.

I'm not surprised - he'd have been Sectioned right away.
