FuMan Skeeto Clothing Review

FuMan Skeeto Clothing Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Chris Kirkpatrick may be a joker, but FuMan Skeetos clothes are nothing to laugh at. Kidzworld freelancer Kristen M. Foley got the 411 from Chris himself when they chatted in New York.

By: Kristen M. Foley

With his quick wit and knack for practical jokes, some might have thought that *NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick would've used his spare time perfecting his stand-up comedy routine. Instead of cracking jokes, Chris is taking a crack at the fashion world with his FuMan Skeeto clothing line. But would you believe that even the name of his clothes started out as an inside joke? (Something involving one of Chris' braids and a mosquito. Dare we ask more?) Don't worry, Chris' tie-dyed T-shirts and studded denim jackets are no laughing matter. They're hip, they're hot and they are made just for you. Kidzworld freelancer Kristen M. Foley had a chance to sit down with Chris in New York. Here's what the original FuMan had to say.

What made you want to do the clothing line?

Chris: I saw so many different styles on so many different people. We saw a lot of stuff that was popular overseas and started wearing it over here and people were like, 'Wow, that's a cool idea.' And it was really kind of old over in Germany and the U.K. I thought why don't we try to bring all the cultures together and make a clothing line so that kids who don't get a chance to go overseas can be stylish.

What kind of feedback have you received about the clothes?

Chris: We've received really good feedback. With the first line we had a lot of considerate people. With this line we've gone a step forward and taken all the designs into the forefront and everyone who has seen it loves it and loves the clothes.

Even with all the success you've had, is there anything that still makes you nervous?

Chris: Everything still makes me a bit nervous. We (*NSYNC) have all grown to support each other so much that when Joey and Lance were promoting their movie they'd call us and go, 'It's weird. It's not comfortable up here promoting the movie without everyone else.' When I'm doing a lot of the clothing promotion it's not comfortable for me to be here without the other guys because we are a group above anything else. We all lean on each other and we all rely on each other. When we're not [altogether] it just feels a little awkward.

It's still early but what are your plans for next year?

Chris: We're going to go back into the studio and we've got a lot of time off. We're all writing towards the new album already. The reason why we drop so many albums, (it seems like one every year) is because when we get a break, or are on the road and we're in our hotel rooms, we just start writing. We have a lot to say and a lot on our minds so a lot will come out.

1 I think the Fuman stinks.

@rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
