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.

While playing Dragon’s Dogma, I recently discovered something strange…
I switching armor between my female arisin (main character) and my male pawn (AI unit) when I came across this bizarre difference.   This is picture is of the silver chestplate.  Same armor/item, but different visual style when put on different genders.  It’s just a tad unfair among other things I could call this…   (¬д¬。)
Well, I guess I can just combo it up with some clothing so she’s not completely stupid looking.  ヽ(  ̄д ̄;)ノ  

That’s… amazing.
