Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!
Clothing may help keep you together (depending on technique), and make you
look fantastic (also depending on technique), but it's the accessories that

most likely be found somewhere near the rest of you) especially if securely
wired to your arm or leg. For men going by train, a pocket watch is not only
appropriate but will make sure you're on time! If you'll be stepping out in
traffic, avoid all flashy jewelry that will get caught in the headlights

paint (to add drama to crime scene photos and confound the rescue squad),
even flares (but be careful since flares can result in severe burns if not
