SIA Inspiration: Tlingit MaskPosted: July 6, 2020
It’s Kim’s turn to host SIA, and she decides to pick this as the inspiration:
This is a ceremonial mask of the Tlingit people of Alaska, and Kim picked it because, well, mask-wearing is a hot topic in the US at the moment, isn’t it? Honestly, I don’t get it. How hard is it to wear a mask? Most Vietnamese people wear masks during our commute, pandemic or not, because the air is so polluted and we’d be breathing in dust and exhaust fume otherwise. And if we can wear masks in 100+ degree heat, then anyone claims masks make it harder to breathe is talking out of their asses.
Anyway, remember to send your outfit to Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) by next Tuesday, July 14th. And wear your masks (I mean in general, but if you can match your mask to your outfit, which I’ve seen some people do, it’ll be great too!)
