I'm working on designing a ensemble for an event this upcoming weekend. I have vague ideas, but no good sense of what I'll actually choose to wear yet. It's a public dance party that encourages costumes, basically. The following images are my weird mix of aesthetic inspiration that I'm working with to hone in on the feel of what I want to wear and how I want it to look--from there arises the choices of what actual clothes and accessories I'll don.

My thought is: always start with something that makes you happy, so I begin with a picture of the man I've posted here several times before (his portrait by the Sartorialist).
