    I recently went to a dermatologists to have a patch test done. It showed I was allergic to specifically black and red dyes. I break out in a painful raised red rash. This sucks because 90% of my clothing is black 😅. I am also allergic to the chemical that makes rubber stretchy.

  2. Takata Cheroki says:

    I have another hypothesis:

    Suppose Wednesday is allergic to the vast majority of commonly used dyes in the textile industry, and all of her clothes are in fact custom ordered with one very special type of dye that she isn’t allergic to, but is effectively monochrome and, when diluted, becomes grey instead of blue, green, or purple.

    Would it be expensive? Yes, but the Addams family is pretty darn wealthy, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Gomez or Morticia owned a company that makes and sells clothes, which would make it slightly less expensive to get Wednesday’s hypoallergenic-dyed clothes (outsourcing can make things quite pricey).

    • Daniel Carrier says:

      Having it turn grey when diluted is pretty implausible, but as long as it’s not the specific color of the school uniforms and she can’t wear a normal uniform anyway, she may as well stick with black.

      Or she could be allergic to whatever dyes they specifically use, and she could custom order something the same color, but the school felt that was overkill and just lets her wear her normal clothes.

    • JustAnotherGhostling says:

      @Faber Quidam as someone who has been to an allergy specialist: if they are not sure what specific component you are allergic to, they will test multiple small doses of different types on you and If they find one that is safe, they will tell you to just stick with that. They don’t elaborate too much on it. She may have just been told to stick with black, grey and white dyes. This would make it fine for her to be able to buy common clothes of these colours without too much risk.

    • Faber Quidam says:

      didn’t she see the dress she wore in a shop? That would be most likely made from common fabric with common dye

    • SgtSupaman says:

      That sounds like something much more plausible. I don’t think anyone that actually has light sensitive skin would claim to be “allergic to color”. I’d bet most of the ones in real life still wear colorful protective clothing (like the one shown in the video with the helmet). Of course, I’m pretty sure the real reason is she is just being snarky about her dislike of colors.

    Actually, the style theory logo looks blue because it is emitting blue light (as well as a little green to get that shade). Most screens are RGB screens, meaning every colour is created by combining different levels of red, blue, and green light (the primary colours of light). While most colour comes from reflections, this is not how it works in screens. That’s why you can see an ebook at night but not a regular book.

    NOTE: When talking about ebooks, I mean on general purpose tablets such as iPads. I do not know about designated e-readers.

    • Baba Leoxd says:

      Red Blue & Green are the primary colors on a RGB screen but not of light that would be Red Blue & Yellow

    • The Void King says:

      @Disdaen maybe, although I bet I spared some kid a bit of confusion.

    • Disdaen says:

      paused and checked the comments immediately, we all would’ve made it…

    • Aksel Gulowsen says:

      I was just hoping he wasn’t going to use that as an example when he begun talking about the logo «no no no Matpat, please don’t do that mistake»

    • The Void King says:

      @asaad hutchinson ehh… they are the same, yet with technology it is additive colour mixing instead of subtractive colour mixing. That’s the key difference.

  4. A A says:

    So I have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, which can be neatly summed up by saying I’m Allergic to Being Alive. Some things which have thrown me into anaphylactic shock include:
    – being too cold or too hot
    – eating solid foods
    – strong emotions (this is a big one)

    The intense joint inflammation that comes with mast cell attacks also knocks my bones and soft tissue out of place.

    That said, I’m thinking that if Wednesday’s allergy had a Mast Cell condition attached, her allergy to color or the emotions she experiences around specific colors could, in fact, make her skin peel off, and if her joints swell enough the muscles and ligaments i.e. flesh could peel off of her bones.

    Theory solidified lol

    Some Style Theory Ideas I Came Up With:
    -Why is it bad to wear jeans to sleep? Can sleeping with jeans change your leg orientation/shape? If so, what then are the best things to wear to bed?
    -I recently watched the anthony padilla video about barefooters, and I was wondering, why like their feet were less vulnerable to sharp objects? Are there benefits and evidence to back this up? Is it actually better to not wear shoes at all?
    -What outfits are actually scientifically aesthetically pleasing? What are the components into having the perfect outfit? Color, Style, Hairstyle, Accessories, Brands, Top to Bottom Ratio?

    • Enok Hansen says:

      I think clothing athstetics is situational

    • Naharu says:

      – Jeans, specially skinny jeans, can cut your circulation and you kinda need your blood going around
      – your feet growns harder skin to try and protect you if you keep abusing it, it would do that even if you only walk around with hard shoes or sandals. The feet does this because our ancestors had no shoes at all

    • VirginAfterSex420 says:

      Wait jeans are bad for sleeping?

  6. Brian Daviscourt says:

    My brother had an interesting relationship with color when we were young. His feet would peel extensively if he wore anything on his feet that had a dye in them. He could only where white socks with white shoes until he hit puberty, after that the peeling stopped.Don’t know how the doctor figured that out, but kudo bars were a thing in the 90’s so kudos to him.

    So grateful MatPat and Team Theorists have finally been able to bring this channel to life <3

    I actually have a customer that wears all white. She told me that she worked on the covers of magazines in NYC, and when they went to Africa to work on a shoot that she wore the clothes there but since returning to the US she gets contact dermatitis from dyed clothing (but not bleached). She said this started 15 years ago and her doctors never found a reason or a solution so she basically had to buy a whole new wardrobe overnight.

    This man has commitment, the entire theorist team had such big commitment they upload almost daily on multiple channels and its some of the best quality videos it truly amazes me👏👏

    I was with you up until you mentioned that if you’re allergic to UV you would have to cover even your scalp and eyes so she must be lying and while I’m sure there are some UV allergies that are that severe, I know from personal experience that not all of them are! I developed a UV allergy about 6 years ago and while I do get hives and become very itchy it only affects me in certain areas (although those areas seem to be growing unfortunately). Specifically I only react on my chest, arms, shoulders, upper back, and more recently it’s started spreading to react up my neck to about where my ears are. If she had a similar allergy level as I do then the clothing precautions she makes is pretty much exactly what I do, cover the affectable area. Also, it seems that I only react to UV rays when they get to a certain level as I don’t react every day or even only on sunny days and there are some sunscreens that work to block/reflect UV rays instead of absorb them that mean even on a high UV level day I can go out in a tank top. Taking this in mind, it’s definitely a possibility that she does actually have a UV allergy, it just may not be as severe as you think it would have to be
