anonymous asked:

What are you wearing?

Well, it’s Wednesday so I am dressed as a Japanese Kabuki performer. I am wearing a silk kimono with golden dragons woven into the pattern. My face is covered with thick coat of white makeup called oshiroi and black and red lines outline my eyes and mouth so it looks like I am wearing a fearsome mask. On my feet are the traditional shoes known as geta. They’re like flip flops but on stilts. My hair is dyed black and gathered upon my head in the manner of a samurai. I carry two swords which I “borrowed” from the Japanese wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They really need to update their security system. You know, the usual.
