Dressing Your Mutant



Apparently, you like mutants. I guess that's why you decided to read this article! Well, no matter. We may not have scared you with mutants, but we can at least give you some ideas to dress your mutants with! You may think mutants are un-customizable because they can't wear regular clothing, right?
