Fashion Week Fall 2015!  Giles Deacon (top row) and dramatic dark lord Gareth Pugh (bottom row) are my current favorites.  I am pretending Gareth Pugh was inspired by Garth Ennis’ CROSSED series.  Heh.

Time for a trip to Tokyo!  First on the agenda: the Tokyo Ghost Bar.  Then we shall stay the night at the Godzilla hotel.  Good times! すごい!
