Crazy Tiger 🐯 Writer ✍️ in China 🇨🇳: Shanghai then Shaoxing 📸
It would not be a Tigrefou expedition without a photoshoot! Shanghai's modernity was the perfect location for what I would call my "metal, space punk" outfit. One of the warnings from my family, that I did not heed, was to not stand out and be different. Wanting to be mindful of the cultural and societal limits, I asked my cousin, who is a Mainland native, if it would be okay to dress up and take pictures. Being a bit of a rebel herself, she thought it would be great to expose people to something that might be out of the ordinary, and that people would probably just think I was weird.
It was interesting to note that without a context to place why a person might dress up in such an outfit, people did tend to move away from me. However, once there was a photographer, it was considered acceptable to dress in such a manner. Overall, we had a great time and the images taken will be revealed at a later date 😜.
