Ah, it’s good to be observant. An astute reader has pointed out the following, ahem, contradiction. In a post about Michael Jackson, presenting her tribute designs, Luxirare wrote:
“My fascination with his work has always been with how he was able to remain so innovative yet mass market; his ambition, his work ethic. In terms of work ethic, he will never be matched. He was bottom of the pyramid in terms of accessibility, yet innovative/completely unique in the way he wrote music, danced to the music, and performed the music. Very few people are able to satisfy both requirements and as such most of my respect for him lies within this fascination. It was as if he was both Thierry Mugler and Alexander Wang in one body. The power, the beauty of MJ’s music was that it didn’t matter if you were a hustler on Wall Street, a nun in rural China, a gutter punk, a socialite, or a person who hates pop music. Chances are, you liked hearing Pretty Young Thing, and you probably still do.”
“Here is my memorabilia of MJ. Since Michael Jackson was the most meticulous performer I have ever seen, I tried to apply that same meticulousness with this personal memorabilia. I doubt I came close, or ever will come close to what he became, but at least I have attempted something. I know everyone is “over hearing about it” but it took me a month to complete because I had to do it little by little, and if it was up to me, I would have shown this much earlier.”
And yet, in a comment here (at Rackk and Ruin) on a post about Michael Jackson’s jackets:

this is so funny because i bet Decarnin was inspired by these band jackets Jackson used to wear in the 80s and now he’s wearing the fashionized version…
He looks really amazing in it even though he is totally creepy .
Hahahahahaha! Now what?! Rock on!
