The evolution of Halloween costumes for girls…

this is really important

This is why I get upset about the sexy costumes at Halloween.  Not because you don’t have the right to be sexy—you absolutely, absolutely do.  But because while you might be able to find costume #3 in a tween size in each of these rows, I can guarantee that in almost all cases, you will not find costume #2 in a teen or adult size.

Babies/toddlers get to be cute.  Kids/tweens get to be fun and spooky and still have modesty, if they want it.  Teens who aren’t on the small end are already getting the sexy, even if they really just want fun, spooky, and a skirt that goes below mid-thigh.  And adults?  LOL nope it’s sexy or nothing.

Everyone who is of an age to want sexy should be allowed to have sexy.  But “not sexy” should always be on the table as well, because sometimes you just want to be warm and cozy and filling a pillowcase with strangercandy.

Very relevant to this blog.

This peach colored robe à la polonaise was designed by Milena Canonero for the 2006 film Marie Antoinette, where it was worn on Kirsten Dunst as the title character. Melina’s costumes for the film were honored with an Oscar win for Best Achievement in Costume Design. The dress was used again in the 2012 Danish film A Royal Affair (En kongelig affære), where it was worn on Alicia Vikander as Caroline Mathilde - a fact confirmed by the film’s director Nikolaj Arcel.

Costumers can find inspiration for their creations in many places. In the instance of historical characters, and especially in the case of Marie Antoinette, there are many extant portraits that can be drawn upon as sources. It is not known if the above drawing of a young of Marie Antoinette, by the Swiss artist Jean-Étienne Liotard was the inspiration for this costume, but its similarity, especially with regards to the color combination of peach with small accents of blue are close enough to at least be noteworthy.

And in my immediate circle of friends, I already read three men that, regarding Emma Watson’s speech at the ONU, already told me ‘well, yeah, but… what about the men? We dislike feminism because the feminist hate us and don’t care about men’s rights”




San Francisco Chinese Restaurant Temporarily Closes Because White Gentrifiers are Annoying and Entitled

A series of customer complaints angered the chef-owner of the small Chinese restaurant so much that he chose to shut the doors, albeit, temporarily, SF Eater reports.

“We are closed because of you (customers),” one sign read.

“So…yes we use MSG, we don’t believe in organic food, and we don’t give a shit about gluten free,” a sign directly below the first proclaims.

The chef tells KGO-TV that he made the signs because he was tired of catering too hard to satisfy patrons.

To illustrate his frustration, he explained one of the incidents that led to the closure:

“The second guy came up to me and said, ‘The rule is, if we don’t like it we don’t have to pay.’ And as he walked out he started cursing at me and that’s when I went ‘poof’,” the chef says.

An employee with the restaurant told the SF Eater that another incident occurred just prior. In that case, the party refused to pay for their meals after saying the food was “too spicy.”

(To quickly address the stigmatization of MSG- it is racist bullshit)
