The High Fashion Evangelion Tribute - The Beast
There's been a strange trend of Evangelion getting the attention of high fashion designers lately, ranging from the Victoria's Secret plug suit model to this performance art piece by Chinese artist Lu Yang. The artist showcases his transformation into the infamous Beast Mode EVA-02 that shows up in Evangelion 2.0. This process was taken to the next level using traditional techniques like Chinese firecupping, simulating the pain that the biomechanical construct underwent to enter a mode which would push it to it's limits. A fascinating mix of mediums to say the least, accompanied by the score of the New York City symphony.
