Perfecting my Nick Rhodes impersonation
November 16, 2011 3:54 PM Subscribe
In a couple days, I will be dressing up as Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran and serving waffles to gallery patrons in a performance art piece in Chicago. This is a live version of this blog
. The problem: I only know a little bit about Duran Duran, and even less about Nick Rhodes. Help me be the best Nick Rhodes I can be!

Details: This will be part of a larger gallery event that features other food-based performances. The waffle recipe was created by Nick's ex-wife, who is a professional chef. There will be another Nick Rhodes there, serving waffles alongside me. I am a dandy butch lesbian.
Nick Rhodes fans, I could use your suggestions in a few areas.
1) Ideas for what to say when I hand out the waffles. Are there any Duran Duran lyrics or references that spring to mind? Maybe some Duran Duran trivia that I could tie in?
2) Advice for a costume that typifies early 1980s Nick Rhodes. Also, ideas for where I can get cheap Nick Rhodes-ian costume jewelery in Chicago.
3) Body language, acting, and movement tips. How do I conjure up the essence of this foppish New Wave Brit?
If you need clarification on any of the details, you can email me at email@example.com.
