Freddie Mercurat by DivaLea Freddie Mercurat by DivaLea
A commission for a lucky gal who likes both rats and Freddie Mercury.
This is one of Freddie's better-known outfits. I had to look at a lot of pictures to see every part, though, it's got gold braid all over it.
Even the three-stripe shoes are ones he wore, Adidas shoes. Back in the day (20-some years) ago, it seemed like EVERYONE had a pair of these, or a knockoff pair of these. (I had a knockoff pair.) There were as unbiquitous as Nikes are now.
(Even legendarily square soft-rock parentmusic Barry Manilow wore a pair.)

I really love the way the red background pops Freddie into the foreground.

I know. It was already pointed out. A truly head-smacking mistake. Glad you like it anyway. ^__-

oops, one minor detail that could only be pointed out by a total Freddie Nerd. His microphone didn't have a stand. he was famous for his standless microphone. but i doubt anyone else will notice, and it is still very amazing!

Oh, you're right! Damn! That would've totally solved composition problems, too.
Next time!
