Cosplay(?) of the Day: The Unsafe Password Dress

password

Can you cosplay as a security flaw? I may be stretching the definition of the word here, but this dress is too amazing not to feature.

It’s worn by Lorrie Cranor, and using a wordcloud she designed a dress that contains some of the most used, least safe passwords out there. Everyone wants to be able to remember their password, but unless it’s something like Gx$i*24b-3!eB, you’re not going to be safe. and that’s certainly the case if it’s “12345,” “password” or apparently “Nicole,” which is featured prominently on the dress.
