Odd in fashion or look fantastic whimsical extravagant grotesque
- conspicuously or grossly unconventional or unusual
- Odd in manner or appearance; fantastic; whimsical; extravagant; grotesque.
1640s, from French strange "odd, fantastic" (16c.), originally "handsome, brave," maybe from Basque bizar "a beard" (the idea becoming of bearded Spanish troops making a strange effect on the French); alternate etymology traces it to Italian bizarro "angry, intense, irascible," from bizza "fit of anger."
(a.) strange in fashion or look; great; whimsical; extravagant; grotesque.
I can't believe we're getting involved in something so bizarre and so treacherous.
