Fun fact: in the west there is a commonly held idea of what women look like from Japan based on the images provided by woodblock prints. These prints, which include houkusai’s great wave, were thought fantastic in places like America but were considered low class in Japan. This is because most of them were advertisements for prostitutes. So the common image of a Japanese woman with a bunch of shit in her hair is an image of a call girl. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that, when you try to imitate a culture without actually understanding the culture, you find yourself dressed as an edo period prostitute.
