Kanye West has left us baffled with his sartorial choices before (see here and here) but Yeezy’s never quite wore anything like the bizarre masked getup he sported at Friday night’s show at the Revel casino in Atlantic City. How best to describe it? The consensus is “Abominable Snowman,” though Vulture went with “Abominable Snowman-meets-giant snowy owl.” There’s definitely a hint of Wampa and Snowtrooper going on too, if you want to get extra nerdy about it.
