Last December on the second day of filming Sharon Needle's music video some of the extras were photographed by the director, and the images surfaced earlier this week on the Huffington Post (you can find the article here).  I had intended for the face to be more of a boy look that day, but quickly realized that both the face and my outfit that I was stuffing into a duffel bag were not as androgynous as I had pictured in my head so I threw a wig in the bag for good measure and headed out.  Somehow I thought it was a good idea to improvise with the linework on my face that morning rather than find reference photos and plan something.  Nonetheless, the look was strangely spot on for the occasion - gritty and a little ugly but slutty at the same time.  Felt motivated to go out in the same wig earlier this week with a less abrasive mug... and it's interesting to see the two side by side.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
