The Long, Hot, Horrifying Summer: Black Sunscreen, ‘The Killkini’, Psycho Flip-Flops, and More!

The “Killkini” Lives
As it is officially summer, it is my sworn duty as Destroy the Brain’s fashion consultant to bring to you the latest in horror inspired warm weather wear. As I’ve often said in this column, the worlds of horror and heavy metal are forever intertwined. So I’ve also included a few items that will appeal to those of you with headbanging tendencies.
First up is the slightly ridiculous silicone “Killkini” (pictured above, $80) from Denver, Colorado shop, Blood Lust Productions. This itsy-bitsy-teeny-weenie Brazilian cut number even glows in the dark.
