MDNT45 Black Long Women Kimono Tenshi
$269 • MDNT45
As the days grow cold, I must soothe my seasonal depression by walking around the house looking like a cozy retired villain. MDNT45 is a Ukraine-based fashion brand that smashes a wearable dystopian vibe.

Backxwash HIS HAPPINESS SHALL COME FIRST EVEN THOUGH WE ARE SUFFERING vinyl
$30 • Bandcamp
I’m a big fan of Backxwash. She’s one of the coolest new artists in a long time: dark, heavy and flowy, a combo of sounds I’ve always loved.

I have this in black, but I really want the pink because it is obviously much cooler.

Clocks and Colours Capsize Chain
$1,250 • Clocks and Colours
The intricacy and detail of this chain is enough to make me want to wear chains: a must to go with the rest of my retired villain look as seen above.

Pink Body Set Honda Rebel
$798 • eBay
Imagine riding around in this? This, paired with my cat helmet, would certainly turn heads in my small town, as a local small-town villain.
