But what will Leatherface do with the *rest* of the body? It makes for tasty barbecue, they say.
Somebody who had a deal worked out with a surgeon who had leftover human skin on-hand from performing cosmetic surgeries on formerly morbidly obese patients who have since lost lots of weight and thus had to have lots of extra skin removed—human skin is not all that elastic, unfortunately, so if a heavyweight person loses all his excess weight, he ends up looking like an underinflated tire—but that deal fell through. Now that person is in need of a new source.
From the linked article: “The designer is based in London, and says they have an order to fulfill for a private customer. She is willing to pay a legitimate supplier £10,000 for 10lbs of skin—she wants to make it known that she will only accept skin from a legitimate business where the skin has been willingly donated, either after death or post weight-loss surgery…” Well, that’s good. But what does this individual want with the skin, anyway? “The designer, who has asked us to remain unnamed, specialises [sic] in macabre fashion, and is looking to partner with a tissue donation organisation [sic] or bariatric clinic so she can purchase human skin to be made into Halloween ‘Leather face’ masks.” There we have it, then. Nothing shady going on here at all. Nope. Not at all.
