special guest/DOUGLAS KEISLER: talks about his 3rd outfit. #3 in seven acts

(detail, above) Mr. Keisler cheekily gives a “SEXY” nod to Rock ‘n’ Roll. Note the interruption, yet relay of letters—on the three right hand fingers and one left finger—that forms and screams SEXY!




What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Steven Sprouse spandex red pink and black army fatigue front to back zippered hip huggers
hot pink fur chelsea boots (if I could turn back time’ t-shirt from Cher’s concert)
disco ball choker
s-e-x-y rhinestone rings
red and black hair

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
To take my rocker vibe to another level

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Spontaneously planned

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?

What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The color is major and important to highlight the pink and red of the spandex with the eye color and the tightest fit possible.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
It is part of my permanent collection

There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
It brings out the real rocker in me
