So I know I said I was going to take a Tumblr break, but I came across this and I just could not resist. 
What
the
fuck.
This is actually a costume that you can buy for Halloween! The grossness of it is unbelievable — and it speaks to the extent that Asian women have been fetishized, exoticized, and commodified. I am tempted to buy this thing just so I can write all over it and call attention to the sexism, racism, fetishism, and general disgusting nature of the costume. 
I could potentially cross out “THANK” and change it to “FUCK” and cross out the “ENJOY” on the breasts, and cross out the “TAKE ME OUT” on the back as well. I could then add a message across the back and ass that says something like, “IF YOU THINK THIS IS HOT, YOU’RE A RACIST, SEXIST DOUCHEBAG” or something along those lines. 
Thoughts? Ideas on how to modify this costume into a critical piece? 
Edit: Or alternatively, I could write on the back, “THIS IS A CULTURALLY APPROPRIATED, FETISHIZED, EXOTICIZED, RACIST, SEXIST, PIECE OF SHIT”

this is also categorized under “geisha costumes” on the website it’s from, btw
Well, that just makes it even better. Because apparently, all Asians are the same.
