10 icons for the [community profile] chromicons Seven Week Challenge. Source Image: Anna May Wong

One of the things that most annoyed Anna May Wong, Los Angeles-born silent film star, was that she was continually typecast as a "Butterfly" or "Dragon Lady," as well as denied the starring role in The Good Earth due to Hays Code anti-miscegenation rules. The leading lady role was instead played by an actress in yellow face, while Wong was offered the role of the seductive villain, which she turned down. So, when making these icons, I deliberately chose a photo where she was wearing the type of clothes for the type of role that she wished she could play.

If you take one, credit and a comment would be lovely, but neither are required.
