Durrance Household Indophilia Takes a Dangerous Turn [Nov. 5th, 2008|09:53 pm]

What I wanna know is, how come everybody at Nick & Misha's party (well, at least two people) said it was "obvious" I wasn't a real Indophile?

(Because a "real" Indophile wouldn't dress so blasphemously?)

Putting on finishing touches...

Shiva and Parvatthi! Blue feet! Fierce!

It's webwawa! I didn't recognize her! She intimidated me!

We upper-tier deities pose like this a lot.

There's ambient1 on the right, with Clay and Beth as a hedonist and a sophist, and a sharply dressed stranger.

Who were you again, ambient1? Sorry, I know I kept asking, but I forget things.

Our host, Lo Pan, dances with Sarah Palin and one sophist.

I can't see any reasonable person being offended by your costumes. Considering that you know the significance of the deities you are impersonating and the meaning of each piece you are wearing, I'm not really clear what the difference is between your costumes and those worn by devotees at the appropriate festivals. Well, you didn't redden hubby's eyes with the juice from eggplant seeds so he would seem less human, but I don't see how that's offensive.

The Krisna lunch boxes that nobody seems to be offended by, I think would be offensive. I'm unclear if the Hindu deity fingerpuppets I have (Shiva, Kali, Ganesha, and Garuda) are offensive or not. I gather that the Monster In My Pocket Kali figurine was not offensive but the trading card describing her was.
