Would he be interested in manskirts?  It's basically a long 1/2 circle skirt (thus very easy to make) with maybe a cargo pocket (I've seen both with and without) or two.  They're actually quite sexy on the right guy, and can be rugged or feminine, depending what they're paired with.  You could also make him an underbust corset (would it still be called that for a guy?) with light boning.  These can also look, well, not rugged, but interesting, on a gothy (or emo) guy.  If you're at all hesitant to make him clothing, why not make him an Alice themed bag (the reverse applique in the Tallulah Bankhead thread would be awesome for this) or other accessories?  Good luck!

+1 on the manskirt!... they look awesome on emo guys ^^
I suggest... depending on how much time you've got left:
- Armwarmers (Tubes of stretchy fabric, something simple) with black lace? (Or pink, or red, whatever he's into)
- A hoodie? They're easy to make (Can't really find the link right now, but there are some kickass tuts around here) embellished with alice in wonderland/some anime he likes appliqué.

I consulted my son........who's in his 20's.......and is a little on the controversial side himself......... Roll Eyes ...........this was his suggestion........ how about a a black hoodie........and appliqué a picture of the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland?  He said he believes it was black and purple.......which are emo colors......... Smiley ......I think the effect would be awesome......especially with the grinning teeth.......... Grin

Mama was wrong..........idle hands lead to fantabulous projects!!

Well, I know the birthday was today, but you could have always tried a vest.
