So Queer Bop is this Saturday, and I managed to snag a ticket (it's the sole perk of being entrusted to sell the last fifty tickets), but now I have to think of a costume that's a) scandalous and b) impossibly clever. Last year, I used up Winona Ryder, a power lesbian, Narcissus, and heroin chic, so those are all out of the question. I think scandalous should be easy, but I want something that's witty and racy instead of just straight-up racy.
I like the idea of going as some type of abstraction in feminist or queer theory, so with that in mind, I have a couple of options:
- the body as text and/or the marked category
- penis envy
- Cartesian dualism
- the lavender menace
The bop's on Saturday, and I have to get shopping that afternoon. Go!!
