Talk about inspiration! This year for Halloween, a wave of Asian women (and men too) are getting dressed up as comedian Ali Wong, rocking the red specs and a black and white dress she's rocking on stage -- while seven months pregnant -- in her incredible, hilarious Netflix standup special Baby Cobra. (If you haven't seen it, what the hell are you waiting for?) Turns out Ali inspired a lot of people with a simple but great costume idea.
And Ali approves.
"Sephora can't help you now." Thanks to wine I decided it was a good idea to test a Halloween costume - specifically, 7.5 months pregnant @aliwong from her Netflix special "Baby Cobra." Gotta post this while I'm vaguely drunk or it'll never see the light of day.

"I can just crush your head, white man!" #colonizethecolonizer #aliwong @aliwong 💕💕💕 #halloween (Also thank you for giving us more Asian American representation. 👌🏼✨ All my Asian guy friends tryna be Glenn from walking dead because there's literally nothing else, and so I just want to thank you Ali for being an amazing example for Asian American women to be comfortable in the skin we live in. Much love!)
If your standup special hasn't inspired a Halloween costume, you're doing it wrong.
