Kayla Guminiak made herself a custom rainbow getup that took inspiration from an unlikely source.
Twenty-seven-year-old seamstress Kayla Guminiak made herself a custom rainbow getup out of fabric she designed using one of Jones’ 2016 tweets. In the tweet, Jones replies to a fan who attempted to flirt with her co-star Kate McKinnon during the Ghostbusters press cycle. She shuts him down by simply saying, “she gay dude stop it lol.”

Screenshots of the elegant own have been shared far and wide—fan art has been drawn, mugs have been printed—and Guminiak told the Daily Dot her design started out as a joke earlier in the year. The closer she got to the parade date, though, the more the tweet grew on her.
“I just love it so much because I think it’s very, very relatable,” she said. “As a feminine gay woman, I get hit on by a lot of creeps, even if I’m literally holding my girlfriend’s hand. So, it speaks to me a lot.”

Guminiak designed the fabric using “basic photo editing stuff and MS Paint,” and had it custom-printed with a service called Spoonflower. After that, she was able to sew her own “she gay dude stop it lol”-print dress just in time for the June 25 festivities.
Jones has yet to notice the dress on Twitter, but in the past she has advocated for inclusive red carpet sizing, so something tells us she’d get a kick out of a piece of formalwear literally covered in her words.
