the look

So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”

Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting. 

I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.

I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.

This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.

I was arrested once for - I was in college and I was back home in Western Massachusetts, and um I had a novel - I think I was reading Watership Down, a novel, and um, it was around midnight and I was looking for a good place to sit and read my novel and I saw that there was a little flood light in the parking lot of the bank. And a fire escape that went up to the roof of the bank. And so I thought, ‘well you know, that’s a perfect good place to go read after hours.’ So I climbed up onto the roof of the bank, and uh, and was reading my novel and about half an hour later floodlights came from adjacent buildings and a helicopter came over cause apparently there was a bank robbery in process or so they thought. And that was kind of difficult to explain my way out of. Like ‘Oh, no no no, officer you don’t understand.’ Oh, I actually was on the ground, my face in the ground, and handcuffs on and ‘Oh, no no no, I was just reading my novel.’ which doesn’t make sense. Like why do you go up onto the roof of a bank to read a novel a midnight.
