    One can only imagine the subjects’ lack of enthusiasm, evidenced here by backturning.

  2. oh Navel Says:

    oh. creepy.

  3. the alien Says:

    oh god, that man creeps me out in excess. and i don’t even like his designs that much.

  4. Kate Says:

    Nice gloves. Michael Jackson’s calling. He wants them back.

  5. Sandy P Says:

    He looks like Lee Marvin in Cat Ballou.

  6. Imperatori Says:

    Oh God, he seems Darth Vader without his mask…

  7. Steven Den Beste Says:

    I think the cyborg hands are the strangest part. I find myself wondering if the collar is there to cover up the bolts. (The ones that they use to recharge him every night).

  8. la petite chou chou Says:

    I simply love Manolo’s reactions to this guy….hehe

  9. JaneC Says:

    Creepy, creepy man. Can I have that jacket when he’s done with it, though?

    On second thought, I don’t think I want to touch anything he’s worn.

  10. aimlessjoys Says:

    Lee Marvin in Cat Baallou Hahahaha! It is those (?) pewter gloves. Looks like Clay Shaw (Tommy Lee Jones) in the Oliver Stone’s JFK. But look, his face seems so needy. It must be lonely at the top.

  11. Zarba Says:

    He seems to have those gloves in every color available, to suit his nefarious purposes.

  12. AskMom Says:

    The gloves, they are not the pewter nor the silver but the liquid metal so well remembered from Terminator 2. When the Undead One needs them to do so, they ooze and reform into…..well, best not to think what and where they have been.

    Superfabulous to see Den Beste here!

  13. Mrs.Vreeland Says:

    The Go Fug girls have this most amusing exchange: “Victoria Fugham”

  14. ginny Says:

    His face it is so needy of the sterling silver prosthetic nose, I think.

    (Cat Ballou! Cat Ballooooo-ooooo-oooou!”

  15. wenz Says:

    are we sure this isn’t a poseable waxworks? The gloves are the uber creepizoid item for me. And wondering how he manipulated the portrait secret from Dorian

  16. xx Says:

    I guess I must be the only one that loves Karl and his fat fingers stuffed into gloves.
