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.

World of Boobcraft

WoW is generally pretty good about gender equality in armour sets - when females wear skimpy armour it looks just as skimpy on males - although they do tend to add wild and random midriffs.

The newest tier Priest armour, however? Holy vacuum-sealed boobies, Batman. If you’re a WoW player and an Escher-girler, please drop them a line to request a change in this texture to something realistic. I don’t want to have to transmog away from what could be a pretty set simply because of this stupid sexualization.

But how would we know that’s a female priest without the big vacuum sealed breasts?

    Hekegegerk. A pity, usually the female half of Tier Armor is a lot less overt about this. I chalk the vacuum sealed up...

    Must cost a fortune to get the over robe tailored with a custom boob window like that.

    maybe her god demands it?
  12. lynmars79 said: I debate the ‘just as skimpy on males” comment. There are a LOT of armor pieces that are far, far skimpier on women models than on men. Paladin T13 gives women a midriff, men are covered, for 1 minor instance. Others chestpieces turn to pasties!

    Oof, I was hoping it would be different for other races but nope, still the same. Strange as the other tier armor sets...
