Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

(All art featured on this blog belongs to their respective artists)

Remember the Avengelyne costume where it’s basically 2 strips of fabric?
I saw it today at a store.  Specifically, a store that sold work clothing for strippers. 
Who knew that they shared outfits with superheroes? (And even the real life one needs to change the top in order to make it stay on.)
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a stripper by the way, or a sex worker, or any profession like that.  The point isn’t meant for shaming of those professions, but just where the artists are getting their inspiration from for their superhero outfits and what settings you’d find this kind of clothing in real life in.
Or as my friend just said to me “No, Ami.  That’s the hero store.” XD

    “No, Ami. That’s the hero store.” It took me a second to register that as a name, so I read it in a Gambit voice.
