When: December 12 at 10:30 pm
Clothing: Aimée: "My Kitten Shoes are from Nine West (Eaton Centre, 416-977-8126, and others). I bought them two summers ago for about $120. My favourite fishnets are from Queen West lingerie staple Nearly Naked (749 Queen West, 416-703-7561). I made my skirt as an art project, from an old sacred heart Mother Mary amulet printed on inkjet paper sewn into clear plastic! I love to wear this skirt, but few occasions other than Gay Pride and New Year's are extravagant enough. My wet-look shiny black halter is from some cheapy store on Yonge Street, for $10. My favourite fluffy green sweater goes with anything, including New Year's. I bought it on Bloor at a little boutique near Bathurst over five years ago. My bangles are from a street jewellery vendor. I found the chunky vintage bracelet at a garage sale, but the clasp was broken. I sewed it onto a leather wrist cuff to give it an added edge. I wear it all the time. My dragonfly hair clips are from Fashion Crimes (395 Queen West, 416-592-9001) and they're about $30 a pair."
Liam: "My boots are from the Australian Boot Company (791 Queen West, 416-504-2411, and others); I got them last year at a Boxing Day sale for about $150. My black pants are made of recycled bicycle inner tire tubes and were a work/trade from Gaelyn & Cianfarani Designs in NYC. The T-shirts were about $20 each from the Gap (375 Queen West, 416-591-3517, and others). This leather chest harness is from Aslan Leather (www.aslanleather.com), also done for work/trade. I bought this jacket with a suit from Grreat Stuff (870 Queen West, 416-536-6770) for $650. My sunglasses were $20 at F/X (515 Queen West, 416-504-0888). My ring was a gift from my dad."
Hair: Aimée: "I usually cut it (badly) myself between occasional visits to my friend Jacob or to a local hair salon like Coupe Bizarre (704 Queen West, 416-504-0783) or Xtraordinaire Hair Design (722 Queen West, 416-504-1814)."
Liam: Hair by Jacob at Sharifian Salon and Spa (676 Pape, 416-469-4247)."
Style: Aimée: "Leather, lace and lady! Ultra-high fierce femme." Liam: "I'm into anything crazy and unique. I really love rubber and leather, combining fetish wear with conservative business attire."
NEW YEARS EVE PLANS: We don't know. We're not planners. It'll definitely be something queer, sexy and outrageous just as long as we're together for our fifth new year's kiss.
