I do find it funny that taking this to a prom is bad, but cosplaying in this stuff is totally ok. As someone who collects a bunch of things relating to the orient and enjoys wearing other worldly clothes I took an interest in this article about this girls prom dress.
Like many other teenagers preparing for prom, Utah senior Keziah Daum wanted to find a dress that would stand out, “something that would be more unique and bold and had some sort of meaning to it,” she said in an interview with The Washington Post.
I always find it rather amusing how people can get bent out of shape over articles of clothing. I collect Kimonos (and even bought one recently), Cheongsam’s, Hanfu’s, etc. To me if you’re not supposed to wear a particular garment due to your heritage then why are these items being sold worldwide? You never really hear about people complaining about the origins of the T Shirt, and how people around the world wear them. They originally started as undergarments and eventually evolved to a point of everyday wear. We should learn and embrace other cultures and what they bring us… like good food. 😛
