True Type AA Male Figure's Photo Shoot
My preordered, in August, Hot Toys' TrueType AA Male Slim Version (a Terrence Howard look-alike) arrived earlier this week. He's been nude until this a.m. when I decided to "go green" (keep my green in my pocket) and use clothing that I have on hand for him.
A Ken fashion (Toys R Us) and shoes purchased from Old Joe Infirmary were selected. Everything fits, but I am just not feeling the graphics on the shirt -- flowers and squiggly designs. Flowers, Ken... come on now? This confirms that I should purchase a second Rocawear Darren. The Rocawear male fashion alone is worth TRU's former price of $12.99. (The price has inched up to $14.99 now, but it's out of stock online). Oh well, you know what they say about hindsight.

Next, I placed a white T-shirt over the Ken shirt to test this look. It's okay... but a bit bulky.

My thinking was the T-shirt alone with the blue cords may not work either, because of the short length of the T. I tried it anyway.

Hmmm... not so bad. Which look do you prefer?
