i was looking up historically accurate clothing as a bit of art inspiration and found the online museum of saudi arabian costume

there’s a bunch more gems just like these and they’re all so beautiful and unique.  there’s also great information about the clothing, too, such as how they were made, who wore them, what fabrics were used, what the different parts of the costumes were called, etc.  just a really fun and informative site and i thought i would share my find.

Mexican? Puerto Rican? Brazilian? Nine times out of 10 people try to guess my ethnicity and guess incorrectly. I smile sweetly and say, “100% Chilean.” I was adopted from Santiago when I was seven years young by an Irish father and a German mother and grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin. As a young child I didn’t feel different, my dad (when he had hair) was a brunette and both of my parents wore glasses so I didn’t get the quizzical glance until I obtained contacts and we vacationed in Mexico where I tanned the color of burnt wood! I attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for BFA-Acting. After coming out to friends and family, I decided to move to a town where theater, film, and homosexuality is celebrated. Twelve years later I am still in love with the city I left Wisconsin for but as a proud out Latina lesbian I hope Wisconsin gets equal rights for LGBT members and makes the state more accommodating and friendly to the community overall. I am blessed to have been adopted by two amazing parents and I thank God every moment for giving me this beautiful chance of survival.
