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.

a redraw (of sorts)
The recent post about Supergirl’s “frilly belt” costume inspired me to dig up an old photoshop project I made about three years ago. At the time it offended me so much that I couldn’t help myself!
I made her skirt longer, covered up her midriff, and gave her tights. I also made her skirt red to mirror Superman’s color scheme- it’s iconic for a reason! 
It still looks a little vacuum-sealed, but at least it’s something Ma Kent would make. Maybe it shrank in the wash!

I like the red skirt with the blue tights.  It is very Superman-like.
