In Justin Yoon’s Sci-Fi Suburbia, Queer Friendships Glow
Together with Blue Desire is Marge: a purple girl with silky blue-purple hair dressed in a kind-fitting, strapless, ground-size costume with a aspect slit. Yoon was operating at the New York splendor shop Ricky’s when he uncovered inspiration for the character in a girl dressed as Marge Simpson for Halloween.
“I required to build a seriously glamorous, queer Asian girl. I truly feel like she’s a a lot more difficult character for me. From time to time I say Marge is me in drag, or all my girlfriends and all the women of all ages figures in my lifetime all set with each other,” Yoon stated, emphasizing how pivotal a part women of all ages have experienced in his lifetime, from mates to loved ones associates.
The endearing shih tzu 5 Poundz completes the trio. The pup is a pink edition of a pet from the artist’s very own lifetime. “My very first pet dog was initially identified as ‘five pounds’ in Korean. It is like a measurement for meat,” Yoon laughed.
