    Default "POP REGALIA -The Style of Michael Jackson" an ART Book dedicated to Dennis Thompkins

    Im so excited. This is something I have been waiting for a long time now. I have made several requests for such a book on Michael Bush's face book page and now Im so suprised and happy that a book about designs and making of Michael Historical costumes and wardrobe is now a reality. This needed to be written for Michael's Legacy and for posperity.

    Really looking forward to this. I hope it will be 'encyclopaedic' in coverage with LOTS of pictures! Thank you in anticipation, Mr Bush, and I am only sorry that Dennis is not here to see this wonderful project come to fruition.

    I will gladly pass...as far as I am concerned, he can do what I told Frank Cascio to do with his book, which is to shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

    And people wonder why these fools keep exploiting MJ's name.

    I'd buy a 100 Man in the Music...before I give my money to Bush or Cascio...or Jermaine..or Latoya.....or any other nutjobs who think releasing a book exploiting their connection to MJ is all they need to fill their pockets.

    I wouldn't support anything Dennis, Tompkins, Faye do even if they wrote about MJ in the most glorious way.

    I guess you have a point...and most probably it will go in the same dumpster along side Latoya's & Cascio's.

    So what you suggest is that we should stop buying EVERYTHING thta is about Michael so ppl stop making money on his name ??? stop buying books, memorabilia, cds, and so on no matter if is possitive or negative?
    Everything that makes money with Michael's name is bad???? :mello:
    I am sorry that is not only unreasonable, but also unrealistic and just not how world works.


    In the other hand I am very happy about this book! Michael was a Fashion Icon and I loved how he dressed! I am dying to know what inspired him and where he got his fashion ideas!

    I was irked at both of them when they sold the Thriller jacket, but after Dennis Thompkins passed away, I've wondered whether it was due to personal problems or money issues. Does anyone know if Dennis was ill for a while, and needed the money for himself or his family? I'm willing to give him the benefit of doubt.

    This is a book I'd love to see, but as always will wait for reviews and the promotion of the book.

    I think it is very important work for Michael's costumer to chronicle his work with MJ. I don't find it exploitative at all. Historians in later time will be thrilled to have a first-person work like that from which to study Michael's life. Much better than a secondary source......

    It's your right not to buy the book but you could avoid using some terms that you do.




    -"Michael was so different and unique as both an artist and a person, that many people couldn't wrap their minds around him. He didn't fit into the boxes we like people to fit into. So instead they reduced him, caricatured him, exploited him, and denied him of his complexity, depth, humanity, and artistry." -

    Here is a dazzling style exploration of the King of Pop. Every visual aspect of Michael Jackson is shown. The result is a stunning photographic feast spanning nearly half a century. From his makeover as a little boy in the Jackson 5 at Motown, his early TV appearances and Saturday morning cartoon. His album images from Off the Wall to Thriller to Invincible and the outfits from all his record breaking World tours The origins of the crystal glove and the white socks. Working with stylist Rushka Bergman and designers Andre Kim and Andre van Pier as well as Balmain and Givenchy. How his dancing and clothing style has influenced other artists including Justin Timberlake, Beyonce.

    Looking forward to it. The arrival at court for example were the only brief glimpses of those magnificent outfits created for Michael. You don't see William Morris style tapestry on a man's arm (armband) everyday...

    This book will find a loving home right next to Bruce Swedien's "In the Studio with Michael Jackson" and "Man in the Music".
    Can't wait!
