Stage persona, attitude and attire[edit]

  • The costumes for the Against All Gods tour (all designed by Vivienne Westwood) went through two discernible phases.
  • Initially, Manson took to the stage wearing a black jacket with pink trimming and wore a black gothic vest with a long, open black skirt. His new makeup design primarily consisted of a black band across his eyes, chrome veneers and a white eyelash.
  • During "The Dope Show," he donned a black and white stripped suit jacket.
  • For some performances of "mOBSCENE" Manson, uses a top hat and a black vest also had a silver strip running down it.

  • When the tour moved to Europe, the band sported a Victorian dress style. Though the skirt remained similar, Manson’s vest then sported blue-velvet frills, and his entry jacket had a Black Plague theme.
  • For some performances of "The Nobodies" that was meant to look like a plague doctor's, with real chicken bones sewn on in the shape of a sergeant’s shoulder decoration and a bagful of onions.
  • For performances of "mOBSCENE" Manson, uses a military jacket and peak cap.
  • For some performances of "The Beautiful People" Manson, uses the hat of a nazi officer.
  • For some performances of "Tourniquet" and "(s)AINT", robots were utilized.
  • During some performances of "Tourniquet", Manson used stilts as well.
