In this week's cover story, we talk with to Skrillex about the fan culture surrounding the 23-year-old DJ/producer's exploding popularity. Indeed, his admirers' adulation takes many forms, from cover songs to fan fiction to, um, Skrillex/Deadmau5 porn. (The story has some of these hairy details.)
But that's not all. Skrillex told us that tons of folks have been dressing up like him and sending him their photos. In fact, the Tumblr site Girls That Look Like Skrillex features nothing but ladies with his look. Here are our five favorites.

Two elements of the Skrillex look tend to pop up in these lookalikes: his hair and his glasses. He's kept his hair long since he was a teenager, but only adopted the side shave last year. Granted, this unisex haircut has been around for a long while -- you can even spot someone sporting it in Curve's early-'90s video for "Fait Accompli" -- but Skrillex's is the 2011 update of the Phil Oakey cut, and will now always be associated with him. His thick black framed glasses, meanwhile, are Sabres, both for his regular glasses and his sunglasses. In case you're wondering, yes, they are prescription.
