Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: “4 Minutes to Save the World”

Domch Raymaker | - Tenue/Outfit, Costume, Punky | Friday, March 28th, 2008

The new Madonna single ‘4 Minutes to Save the World’ and John Galliano’s urban warrior outfits collided, made passionate love to each other, and fused in my subconscious, and this is their lovechild: a hallucinogenic, over-the-top outfit that merges the work of two SL designers - Tonk Tomcat and Kabraxxis Desade.

What you see here chanelling a latter-day Asian Dr. Who is Tonk’s brooding, post-apocalyptic ‘Extinction’ set hybridized with Kabraxxis’ classical 18th century samurai outfit. And there to prevent the whole ensemble from taking itself too seriously are two irreverent pieces by Sabina Gully - her Time Traveller necklace, as well as her ‘Time Has No Meaning’ bracelet. Both feature watches with their hands madly whirling round and round.

One disclaimer: I’m not usually a fan of the Resident Evil / Silent Hill look, but Tonk’s Extinction outfit won me over with its customizability and sheer attention to detail. Included in the very full ‘Extinction’ pack are camo pants in 6 different colours, 5 shirts, 3 pairs of goggles, and a bevy of other sculptie attachments (bomb bags, gloves, and a headscarf, among others), that any self-respecting doomsday survivor would presumably need. The boots shown in the picture are, however, different from the ones included in the ‘Extinction’ set.

Kabraxxis is no slouch in the prim attachment department, either. I counted 13 attachments in his Black/Red Samurai Special pack - these include shin guards, a neck guard and a mask (on top of the items depicted hree).

    This comment made me believe that the boots used for the shooting were from another store Ben dear. How silly on my behalf indeed….I am terribly sorry for my question.

  5. As stated in the credits lines, the boots are the “Biker Boots Extreme (500 Lindens, Perms: NM/C/NT)” from Tonktastic. They aren’t indeed the ones included in the “Extinction” Outfit.
