Adam the Dress-up Doll

We’ve been wondering how Adam would do his hair and what he’d where since he first stole our hearts on American Idol, and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. So, of course we’re wondering how he’ll look (besides beautiful, which is a given) for his appearance on American Idol this Thursday.

And we’re wondering with some trepidation because Adam wears what Adam wants to wear. He’s entirely capable of showing up with a beanie, the leather poncho and harem pants, plus a pair of flipflops. Or plaid tights, a torn t-shirt and a bedazzled blazer. He could even break out the glamkilt (please, oh, please, oh, please.)

He could be getting purple highlights done right now, or shaving exactly one half his head, or growing a mustache. Or maybe he wants even longer extensions put in. There really is no way of knowing what he might do.

But I’m going to guess anyway, because otherwise why do this thing at all? And, my dears, I’m going to go BORING. Seriously boring. Because Adam is “bringing it down acoustic style”, and that means Adam is going to dress lowkey (for him. For anyone else, it would be a tad too much.) It’s just going to be him, a stool and Monte, and even if he weren’t doing the more leather/less rhinestone thing, glitter really isn’t appropriate, even for a song about taking a trip and falling into it, even though Adam can be disturbing literal about lyric interpretation (I blame theater.)

So I want to predict the Alexander McQueen skull shirt – Adam clearly loves it and it suits him perfectly. Adam is, in fact, the epitome of the Perky Goth – loving the accoutrements of the Goth look without actually being all emo and nihilistic. We do know Adam’s long standing affair with skulls. I want to predict it as something perfect for this occasion except that I think the print will videotape poorly, creating a moire affect.

So I’m going to predict even more boring – tight black jeans, a t-shirt we’ve seen a couple dozen times at the very least and a jacket – either a new leather one or the jacket from his Grammy tux. He’ll also wear a lot of jewelry, especially on his hands and wrists. When he sings an acoustic song, his hands get very expressive, which is a nice effect and he’s going to take advantage of it. He might go for gloves because he’ll be shaking a lot of hands, but I’m thinking rings right now. Just to be glittery somehow.

I also think his hair will be down. He’s been wearing it up a lot since he got the extensions taken out so it’s time for a controlled emo do. He’ll go for a restrained make-up with just a touch of glitter on the corner of his eyes and his nails will be chipped.

And Ryan will hug him.

You guys have any thoughts? Outrageous? Boring? Fun? Let me know.
