Spotted at: 15th and Delgany streets en route to a recording studio.

Profession: Performance artist.

Favorite film: How to Marry a Millionaire. I love Marilyn Monroe, and this is my favorite film she's in. It's hilarious; I can watch it over and over again.

Summer anthem: "Juicy" by Notorious B.I.G. brings back good memories and always reminds me of summer.

Style inspirations/icons: Aliens inspire my on-stage costumes, which are very exaggerated and theatrical. Nature inspires my off-stage look, which is often just a T-shirt and jeans, a very laid-back, hippie-chic look.

Favorite colors: Green, purple and any metallic colors.

Favorite accessory: In performance it's my cup. In everyday life, it's a goddess coin necklace.

Style mantra: Off stage, I need to feel good and feel comfortable. On stage, I want to be visually stimulating while reflecting the audience's suppressed urges. As for the sports cup I wear in gold and silver, it is supposed to be attention-grabbing, but also a metaphor that I am in charge of my own sexuality.

Shops at: The Levi's store, vintage T-shirt shops in California, Buffalo Exchange for one-of-a-kind pieces, Urban Outfitters and American Apparel.

This is rapper ASiEL's favorite accessory: his goddess coin necklace featuring Demeter. It was a gift from Patrick, a former R.A.P. bandmate. ASiEL explains, "There were three of us guys and we used our names as acronyms and I was the 'R,' Arthur was the 'A' and Patrick was the 'P.' We are all still involved in music today. I always wear this goddess Demeter coin necklace because it helps bring forth the fruits of your labor and bring them to life. It's a metaphor because Demeter helps crops to grow."
