8 Asians

I caught an The Cut/NY Mag piece (referencing Kotaku’s) about the latest trend to rock Weibo (that’s China’s “Twitter”): babies dressed up in watermelon clothes. It evidently started in Wenzhou city, when baby’s father reportedly worked all day to fashion a functional pair of shorts from a watermelon so his son could cool down in the hot weather.

Aside from how this has got to be the coolest (literally!) fashion trend of the year, there’s really nothing to say except that I’m seeking volunteers… who will let me dress their small Asian child in produce?!

Ok, ok, one more picture… “WATERMELON SPARTAN!”
