This is the third piece in the vein of "Portrait of a Neon Cowboy" and "Everyone Turned When She Walked in the Bar." It is an accessory to Bryce's showstopping neon fashion pieces.

"What started as a piece of art on a subculture within the country-western scene, has grown because I loved the way that the neon clothing popped on the black surface," Bryce explains. "I think that really speaks to why the neon cowboy subculture exists in the first place. It stands out in such stark contrast to the more muted colors typical amongst country western wear. Rather than go traditional, anyone rocking neon at the country bar is there to make a statement.

"Having just completed 'Le Rave' right before this, I was thinking about a third piece to match with the boots and hat. A neon belt buckle was my first thought, however, that's not something I've seen. It might exist, but then it occurred to me that one of the ballsiest accoutrement I've ever seen at a dance club was sunglasses. It's already dark, but by wearing sunglasses, you're telling the rest of the club that your future's so bright, you gotta wear shades.

"But I think Corey Hart said it best with 'I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can see the light that's right before my eyes.'"
