A 72-year-old grandfather, Liu Xianping, has become something of an internet sensation after he began modelling for his granddaughter’s online clothing store.
Liu’s granddaughter runs Yuekou, a partnership between herself and four other recent college graduates. While Liu was helping the girls unpack, “he picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match. We thought it was fun so we started shooting.”“Why unacceptable (for someone like me) to wear women’s clothes? Modelling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose. We were very happy on the day of the shooting. I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy.” — Liu Xianping

Anonymous asked: is "Gates of Dawn" the costume for next year?
ohman, that would be the best thing, i’d have to work on my abs a lot though, did you see that babe? i’m actually thinking of trying to pull off a mucha, they have all the best accessories and i could carry around a big art nouveau frame all night to maintain my personal space (that was easily the best thing about having a bulky cardboard aspect to my costume)
yes yes yes i only want to do art history costumes ever! i’m so envious it came out PERFECT. was going to do the same thing this year but hurricane sandy was a bitch, stealing this next year though!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH! AND PLEASE DO! it was honestly so ridiculously easy, just took some patience to do the face paint and even that didn’t take as long as i thought it would! sandy ruined a lot of things but i’m so glad you stayed safe, i need you to have a california visit and a me in ny and us crying in museums and getting drunk and macking visit and i need to see you do lichtenstein next year (for which you already have the perfect eyebrows i just realized!) and because i love you and think you are awesome.
