Dressing in costume is one of the most common and recognizable traditions that dates back thousands of years to celebrate one of the oldest holidays, Halloween. It was the Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, that were believed to wear the first "costumes" consisting of animal heads and skins, during the bonfire celebration of Samhain.  Even though adult costumes have come a long way from the "animal heads and skins" that the Celts wore, the desire for people to dress up in costume and celebrate a special occasion is still in our blood.

I think it’s okay too. A Geisha girl is popular. Caucasian stereotypes include little Dutch girls and drunken Irish men. Also hearkening from my background, I wouldn’t be offended if someone dressed as a Scot in full kilt etc. (especially if he has nice legs! lol), or the French stereotype: a beret, a baguette and a bottle of wine. I appreciate though that you don’t want to needlessly offend anyone.
