Tyler, The Creator Based His Igor Costume On A Silhouette He Was Into

The most memorable part of Tyler, the Creator’s video for “Earfquake” from his latest studio album Igor, is him wearing a platinum-blonde wig and sky-blue suit, rigid with his movements and hilarious whenever he opens his mouth. This ensemble, which has come to be known as the Igor suit, isn’t just some random fit. In a cover story for GQ’s Man of the Year issue, Tyler discussed what the outfit means and where it comes from. https://www.instagram.com/p/B4-l815gG8w/The Igor costume started as a stop-motion character based on a particular female silhouette that was interesting to him, “with the scarf and the cool blazer.” “It’s like, I don’t have the hair to pull that silhouette off. So it’s like, man, if I was a fucking white lady in Denmark,” he explains. Elsewhere in the cover story, he talked a bit about the meaning of the costume. “The Igor shit plays a thin line between goofy and funny and art,” he said. “I always have to be careful so it doesn’t fuck everyone’s perception up. It’s art and an idea.” Tyler also talked a bit about how he felt after an epic performance at Madison Square Garden in September. “It was one of the craziest feelings,” he said. “If I died right now… Bro, I don’t know. I was OK with everything.” Check out the full interview in the link up above.
