I love my new west coast home, replete with desert dance parties, funky glitch hop, nasty electro-breaks, flame throwers, fun fur, and mobile glowing spaceship dj booths, I also love the new EDM concerts with crazy LED shows, super technical visuals and pyrotechnics, and dj booths worth 6 figures. But ultimately, I’m an east-coast party kid that grew up on minimal, hard techno, and jackin house. Give me Ben Sims in an abandoned detroit warehouse […]

From UD Replicas, the final touch on your museum quality Batman costume – The Batman Backpack. I would LOVE to see how this looks sans the Dark Knight bodysuit.  Yes the entire outfit is sick, it’s BATMAN.  But it’s just trying a bit too hard.  Backpack could be cool on it’s own with appropriate leather/waxed denim/cyber punk get up.
