I too thought the answer was "supposed" to be that the girls make the uniform - in the 'the uniform is an iconic piece of fashion but it's the women like myself, committed to bringing it to life with our unending perk, drive to disturbing sameness and unintentional consumption of our own hair who make it the international symbol for cheese and silicone it is,' way.
Did the one who dared to say (*gasp*) that she'd make the uniform rather than the other way around make it through? I can't really keep track of their names...though, granted, I haven't tried all that hard!
When the first one said the uniform makes the girl (and seriously, it bothers me that this entire dog and pony show is run by women who refer to grown women as 'girls,' perpetually. Not that everyone doesn't say 'oh, I'm meeting the girls for lunch,' or whatever but it's supposed to be a professional thing and I'd never ask a grown woman if the uniform makes 'the girl,' they're women.) I was like oops, dopey, but then she was right.
This makes sense, thanks. Texas is... incomprehensible and frightening to me to begin with and this show does not alleviate that in any way, heh.
Kilgore's main claim to fame is the great town it was-- during the 1930s oil boom. If you visit, that's pretty much all they talk about in addition to the Rangerettes. It's very much a city living in the distant past. Similarly, Dallas was a great city back in the 1970s and even the 1980s but it's pretty much living in the past lately, and the DCCs are one great thing the city can continue to promote for itself. Texas may run out of oil, but it will never run out of hair spray and silicone.
