Tokio Hotel's Performance Outfits: What Happens When Bill Kaulitz's Jacket Comes Off

Tokio Hotel performed at the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia on Saturday night, and frontman Bill Kaulitz hit the stage wearing one of his costumes from the band's Humanoid Tour, which concluded earlier this year. The whole look was designed by Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2, and Kaulitz called it "fantastic" in a backstage interview after the show. And it was pretty fantastic.

The outfit included a jacket with large spikes on the sleeve that added inches of height to his shoulders, fingerless gloves, and lace-up pants (pants that he also modeled on the Dsquared2 men's fashion runway back in January). But when the jacket came off, it was different story! Not only did his shoulders return to regular size, but underneath his jacket he wore a leather tank — MORE LEATHER! — and an elaborate chain necklace that had smaller chains within it (see close-up below). Quite the look, don't you think?

+ Do you like his outfit better with the jacket on or off?
