It is hard to forget Vaas Montenegro. He was featured heavily in the promotional materials for the hit game Far Cry 3, and he is probably one of the most recognized faces from the game. Vaas is a great villain. He is a sadistic pirate whose violent nature has no limit. If you haven’t played the game, Canadian actor Michael Mando (the voice actor and inspiration for Vaas’ look) brought him to life in the Far Cry Experience video series. These videos are totally NSFW, but they give you a great taste of Vaas’ personality and the atmosphere of Far Cry 3. They also made perfect references for this week’s Get the Look!
Vaas’ outfit is very casual. Since he is busy terrorizing people on his island, his look is made up of simple, worn-in pieces, minimal accessories, and messy hair. Unfortunately, when most retailers sell deliberately “worn-in” clothing, they are often way more expensive than their regular counterparts. But if you have a DIY streak, there are lots of tips online to distress clothing at a fraction of the price!
For my Vaas look, I started with a pair of Hudson straight-leg jeans. These jeans are made of a lighter, khaki-like denim, which will make them a more comfortable wear as the weather continues to warm up. On top, I chose a Hurley men’s tank top, but any dark red tank top would also work. For accessories, Vaas wears a few layered necklaces, but I had a difficult time finding similar ones on men’s clothing sites! I couldn’t find a simple men’s pendant on a leather rope anywhere, so I turned to Etsy! There I found an iridescent stone pendant on a leather braid that works perfectly with this look. To complete my Vaas outfit, I chose a brown leather belt from Billabong, but this is another simple piece that can be found anywhere. Vaas’ outfit might be done, but to finish his look, you can’t forget about his hair!
Vaas’ look wouldn’t be complete without mentioning his beard and his mohawk. Whether you are going for a mohawk or a faux-hawk, a good gel is very important. I chose Bed Head’s Power Play finshing gel. This gel helps you control your hair without being sticky and flakey. If you are going to try out a sculpted beard like Vaas, you might want to use Neutogena Men’s Triple Protect Face Lotion as well. This lotion is a great product to use after shaving. It will protect you from razor burn, help with dry skin, and it has SPF 20. Once you have taken care of your hair, your Vaas look is finally finished!
