surreal on 09/17/2013 20:08:05 MDT Print View

This made me instantly think of metamorphosis, which I see has been documented by others. It also made me think of surrealism, which led me to ponder of Salvidor Dali. And.... well fractal geometry! Can't make a tarp without geometry!

For the above reasons I like:

Mandala
Dali
Surreal
Fractal
Geo Duo
Geo-lite
Morph-lite
Omni-Morph Duo
Cocoon
Traverse
Shadow
Cyborg
Illusion
Mirage
Drifter
Blizzard
Snowcap
Haze
Vendetta
Rebuke
Monsoon
Nightshade
Rift
Cloak
Nightcloak

Magic the Gathering on 09/17/2013 20:16:50 MDT Print View

I used to play a card game called "Magic the Gathering" and there was a particular card that let the controller copy another card of an opposing players possession. This tarp also can mimmick other shelters/tarps with its different configurations. This card was called "Vesuvan Doppleganger."

Hence this name:

The Doppleganger (which literally means "living double")


I'm a nerd... I know. :)
