Am invited to an Arabian Nights theme party. What can I wear that isn’t insulting or cultural appropriation? Or should I just drop these friends? Clearly they are not as woke as I.
Sounds fun. Some options:
1) Magician - you even know magic tricks!
2) Sea serpent - blue and green glittery, scaly costume with a long tail.
3) Box of treasure - multicolored silks in patchwork for emeralds, rubies, silver, and gold. And you could wear your gold lame sock garters to match!
I would go as an Arabian horse - and I know how to move like one - all floaty and spirited.
You could too but you would have to practice walk, trot, canter, and spinning turns at home. : )
Will fix this later but here is a picture of an Arabian horse in costume at a show.
My sister has two of them. Beautiful creatures.
Here is the horse - just pick your favorite color scheme and run with it.
