As a kid, I grew up collecting and playing with The Transformers. My mom used to buy me Autobots characters while my brother had his Decepticons. Come to think of it, my mom never asked me which one i liked and assumed I was more interested in the good guys than the bad guys. Boy was she wrong. Deep inside I wanted the Decepticons. I never complained with what my mom got me (since most of the Transformers I had were gifts-and when we were together to buy I pick other toys to buy..more on those in future posts). I guess my mom raised me well to appreciate all the gifts and things I receive. So i was grateful with what I received. But despite that, I always admire my brothers collection more than mine. I found Decepticons to be more stylish, to have cooler characters and have more intricate details. And lets not forget about the colors they sport! A lot of them had a rich purple colored armor combined with cool colors like grey, green and blue. For me Decepticons looked more powerful and regal. I guess back then I was already exhibiting signs for an interest in fashion. Though I love the Autobots because they were after all the good guys, I just ended up playing with brother's toys more. Sadly most of the Decepticons I obsess with like Soundwave, Shockwave,Sharkticons, the Constructicons, and my ultimate favorite triple changer Octane weren't in my brothers collection so I just settle with his other characters but they're still cool nonetheless:)

Until now, I still dream of owning those above mentioned characters:) Toy manufacturers don't make toys as beautiful as the original transformers. The designers who envisioned their construction are to me like clothing geniuses like Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga.


About the look:
When I was sorting old clothes to sell for a recently concluded blogger bazaar, I found my old Transformers t shirt! Yey:)! I was extremely delighted because its been ages since I wore it the last time. So I wasted no time coming up with a look inspired by the Decepticons. All I needed was an amazing jacket to tie the t shirt to the theme and the overall look. Luckily I had this amazing structural jacket that looks like samurai armor which was so perfect. In an instant I was made into A DECEPTICON:)!!!!!! TALK ABOUT BECOMING ONE OF THEM:)!!! To look more sinister I wore a purple knit beanie/wool bowler hybrid hat and round frame glasses. Instead of resorting to wearing skinnyjeand or just dark denim bottoms, I wore a techno print leggings with cutoffs because the print reminded me so much of circuits in a computer:)

Awesome look,Andre!!I like this combination jacket with sleeves, which I see as a mixture of Chinese pagodas and armor of a medieval knight! Fun!!!!!!!!!

Okay, this...THIS is brilliant! That jacket is the best possible choice you could have made to go with this look.
This is just wild and beautiful. One of my favourite things ever is taking typical 'nerdy' things and making them modern and awesome. This is by far one of the best examples I've ever seen of that. D8 LOVE
Andre Judd

Andre, you are, by far, the coolest dude I know! Love every look. Wish I could double Hype every look! So yeah, coming back to the cool dude bit. Yesterday, I sat in my office, and made all my male co-workers go through your looks. I work as a writer in a team of 30 men, and they all wear the most boring clothes, every single day of their lives. Hopefully, a 30 minutes exposure to your world would knock some sense into their heads. Not that I am a walking wonder. But I have seen the fashion God, and I am at least trying!
Andre Judd
Pratishtha thank you so much:)!!!!!!!! this means so much to me. this is like the coolest compliment I got ever:)!!!!!wow. im having quite a bad day but after reading this, you gave me a reason to smile again. Thank you:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
