Smile for the Silk Sonic Set

The Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak Outfits are part of the Silk Sonic Set, which also includes accessories based on each member of the duo. Appropriate for the duo’s timeless entertainer Bruno Mars, bust out a mic with the Sound Scepter Pickaxe (sold with the Outfit), then wear it as a Back Bling when back on the beat of the path!

Also, with the Freedom Wheels Emote, do a lil’ spin and do it again.
