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.

So I bought an issue of Japan’s KeroKero Ace magazine to get a tacky redeco of the Transformers movie Legends Starscream mold. On a whim, I flipped through the non-TF portion of the book, and one of the things I ran into was… this, which seems to be from one of Japan’s innumerable collectible card games. I have been told that this is a card called “Miracle Beauty” from Cardfight!! Vanguard, and that the flavor text has the woman informing us that she’ll show us “a REAL miracle” with her “Shining Wink”. Uh. Well then.

… anyway. The anatomy. What? How? How are we seeing both of her breasts at the same time from that angle? And… we can see her full rear, too? How broken is she?

I submitted this to Escher Girls… uh, about a month and a half ago, at least, but I submitted it before I actually started following that tumblr, so I don’t know if it didn’t go through, wasn’t accepted, or if it’s just in the queue somewhere.

I probably missed this because it was a period of time where the messages were just overwhelming me. :\

Anyway, here it is.

    The card name is apparently “Miracle Beauty”… I guess the miracle is that she didn’t snap in half.
