It’s not every day that you see a Pikachu strolling around campus, but Halloween only comes around once a year and some students at Baylor really wanted to make the most of it. One of these students was Waco senior Ben Dvorak, who became Pikachu for a day. In this very special edition of Baylor’s Best-Dressed Bear, Dvorak, as Pikachu, will be answering our questions about fashion and life, including how he avoids fashion faux pas.
Question: Who are some of your favorite designers?
Pikachu: I don’t know of many designers. I wear the same thing every day.
Question: What are some of your favorite stores?
Pikachu: My favorite store is Ditto Mansion. It’s a huge store with everything you can imagine.
Question: What are some of the staple wardrobe pieces you wear?
Pikachu: My classic yellow.
Question: What are you looking forward to wearing in the fall?
Pikachu: My Squirtle shell jacket.
Question: You dress exquisitely every day. How do you do it?
Pikachu: Just one leg at a time.
Question: Have you ever had a fashion faux pas?
Pikachu: I’m a Pokemon. I don’t know what faux pas means…
Question: Does the way you dress lead to misconceptions about your personality?
Pikachu: Yes, all the time. Because I’m yellow, everyone thinks I’m a nice guy, but sometimes I lose my temper and throw down on some other Pokemon.
Question: Where do you find inspiration for how to dress?
Question: Do you have other interests besides fashion?
Pikachu: I’m big into UFC fighting. I thinking fighting for a living would be interesting.
