A mate of mine found it, he knew I was after one and one of his friends just so happened to have one. Another friend of mine who is one of the biggest Stone Island and C.P Company collectors and just so happens to be from Burnley like me, has got a few pieces from transformable series that Moreno Ferrari did for C.P Company that he is ready to sell, so I am getting them and I couldn’t be more excited. They might not be the best pieces, like the inflatable armchair jacket, but they are awesome. Hey, they are transformables which is fucking cool!

They are a massive part of why I became a designer, those pieces and items like the Goggle Jacket. It’s all about product. If I go in there and put the jacket on, it would be nice but I almost get more enjoyment looking at them to be honest, same with Goggle Jacket I buzz of the fact that it’s got a face. It’s like a superhero costume. They are more valuable as objects. It is why my whole thinking isn’t about styling and fashion but instead about making a cool object, suspending it and looking at it - let’s geek out over it.“

Cosplay Tip: Hot Glue Disasters and How to Salvage Pre-Styled Wigs

If you’ve ever owned a wig that is literally hot-glued together (for ponytails, buns, etc.), you’ll find that it tends to get ratty after a few uses, especially since you can’t brush it out like a normal wig. Thankfully, they can still be saved. Rubbing alcohol removes hot glue from not only pre-styled wigs, but every surface imaginable. Just rub the alcohol onto the glue with a cotton ball, q-tip, or tissue. The glue’s hold will loosen until it can be scraped off with a fingernail. With a little bit of patience, you can remove the glue from your wig so that you can redo it any way you please. Again, rubbing alcohol removes hot glue from almost any surface, so this trick can be a lifesaver even when wigs aren’t involved.
