NAME THAT PATTERN - Global Warming Edition!

Friends, the weather has been so hot here in New York City this month, one seeks relief wherever one can find it.

What better way to cool off than to play a refreshing round of the internet's favorite pattern-naming game, MPB's exclusive Name That Pattern?!

I've picked patterns so cool, they're practically air-conditioned.  For those who have never played Name That Pattern before, the rules are simple: for every pattern I post below, you have to think up a name.  Ideally, you'll come up with names for all the patterns.  If you can only name some, that's fine too, though you won't qualify to win our grand prize: an all-expenses paid, open-ended vacation at Moscow's luxurious Sheremetyevo Airport!

With no further delay, here's Pattern #1.

Take a deep breath, because here comes Pattern #2!

But wait, there's more.  Presenting Pattern #3...

Words fail me -- Pattern #4!

And now the big finish --  Pattern #5!

But wait, there's more!  Our bonus round, for those who appreciate a challenge -- Pattern #6!

Readers, thank you so much for participating in this minty-fresh edition of Name That Pattern.   I'll be posting my answers shortly -- don't forget to post yours!

    1. Camel jockey...ding ding ding...we have a winner. Spit taked my coffee

    2. Omgosh! I just googled what camel jockey means and I did not mean to offend anyone! When writing the list, I thought the girl in #1 looks like a jockey and she's wearing camel colored fabric. It didn't compute in my head that adding the two together make a derogatory word. Oh geez.

    3. Although I knew the reference....I didnt take it that way. I felt it was was just a goofy play on words.

  21. I don't have a name for #1, but I do have a quote:

    "Watson, when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be THIS OUTFIT".

    6- Fashion doll clothes for the LSSGR

  25. I know this isn't the point of the game (which I'm conveniently not playing because I suck at it) but #1 is by Rudi Gernreich, inventor of the monokini, and I swear that is the same woman who infamously modeled it back in the 60s, Peggy Moffitt.
    Thank you for the flashback

  26. It Is Peggy Moffitt, or whoever that famous model is. She's still around. I recently saw her on this fabulous show about these two guys that sell high end vintage. I, too, am sorry not to stay on task Peter.

  27. I'm still chuckling at "Sally Field's Wedding Gown."

    2. See 'n' Go!
    3. Papal Dispensation
    4. ButtonDown Beach Devils
    5. Wattle Waddle
    6. Sheriff Ken! The Leather Bar Went Thatto'way!

  32. I've done a bit of research on #1. I'm sorry to say the pattern includes neither the hat nor the boots, but it does include the belt. Too bad.
