For the Love of the Fail Whale

A whole web site has been dedicated to the iconic Fail Whale, the friendly little message visitors receive when Twitter's servers get overloaded. The artwork was originally created by Australian designer, Yiying Lu.

Now that I've seen Yiying in her Fail Whale dress, I like the illustration even more. Where can I get the dress?
