My Hade Heart

kimononagoya:

What a charming color story! The juxtaposition of the ship/lighthouse with the floral kimono makes me think of a port of flowers next to the sea, maybe the stereotypical image of a Dutch field of tulips. The kimono itself has a slightly odd pattern of stripes of flowers, like patchwork. which is pretty uncommon for kimono. But the colors and stripes in the obi work really well with it and even echo its color scheme. This entire coordination is bold, playful and super modern.

"DYSFUNCTION OVER FASHION 

In wardrobe choosing, I am forever conflicted between looking hella fresh, and looking hella messy. I want to be fresh because I want to be fresh, but I want to be messy because I want people to look at my busted shoes (which have long since expired) and think, ‘Wow, she must get rowdy on a skateboard.’ I want people to look at the scars on my elbows and knees (whose healing I’ve intentionally thwarted) and think ‘She’s tough like the boys.’ I want people to look at this band-aid (whose presence has been exaggerated and intentionally prolonged) and think, ‘She’s a scrappy mother fucker with no regard for her own safety.’”

These pictures are the Hell Courtesan portraits from Junko Mizuno’s “Rising” exhibit at Gallery Nucleus. The description for all of them is so great:

"Jigoku Dayu was a courtesan celebrated for her alleged encounter of spiritual enlightenment with the Buddhist monk Ikkyū.  She has been a popular subject for many artists over the last several hundred years.  After getting kidnapped and sold to a brothel, she renamed herself as “Jigoku” (meaning “hell”), believing that her misfortune was the result of karma from her previous life.  She is usually depicted wearing a kimono with scenes of hell on it and is often surrounded by skeletons, representing her newfound understanding of life’s transience and illusion.  What may appear to be bizarre, scary, or even humorous images are actually symbols layered with her divine inspiration.  Upon witnessing Buddhist hell, the courtesan finds enlightenment and wisdom."

The first one is selling as a print and also my birthday is coming up soon.

As the debate on same-sex marriage continues in Western nations, including the United States, Thailand could become the first country in Asia to legalize gay marriage. Thailand is known for its liberal acceptance of sexuality, but the draft same-sex marriage law is not without controversy. This is a traditional Thai wedding, except there is no groom. There are two brides. This ceremony is only symbolic because Thailand, like all of Asia, does not recognize same sex marriage. But a draft law later this year could change that and make Thailand the first Asian nation to legalize gay marriage. Nonetheless, Arisa Thanommek and her partner Pacharee Hungsabut say they were not interested in waiting. “We…we [will] not wait. Because we [are] ready.  Our family is ready,” she said

I noticed that women of color are one of the biggest spearheads of recognizing LGBTQ relationships. Happy Pride Month to Thailand!
