Catching Up: Felipe

Felipe Castillo

"Too warm for male stuff" he says (he's the one on the left, by the way)

Some of you might remember this personal friend of mine. He's a professional opera singer who shows up to work in, well, how can I put it, in quite creative attires!

Some might say he's "in drag". I don't think so. I know those are not the dull, gray, boring wearables one associates with male clothing, but still, he's not dressing as a girl. He actually reserves that for his female impersonations as his alter ego, madame Vkallasova: an amazing, entertaining, larger-tan-life, full-feldged soprano. For me, what he does on a daily basis is simply being himself: a New Male. Make up and all!

It's a shame that he doesn't keep a blog, hasn't joined Lookbook, Chictopia or something, so that he can share his unique sense of style. Anyways: I've taken a few pics of him myself, as you may see.

Oops... you can catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror!
