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.

"Gainaxing"
Please tell me I’m not the only one disturbed by this.You should totally make a “boob sock” tag and a “back breaking breasts” tag.

They look like little creatures.

Since you’re posting physics-fail boobs lately… this scene from High School of the Dead is pretty much the ultimate example.  Bullet dodging boobs! Really bizarre boob-ripple syndrome! (Seriously, are those supposed to be water balloons or amoebas or what?)

Anyway, I think having boobs that are faster than a speeding bullet should be added to the EscherGirl superpower list.

"Do not try to bend the boobs.  That is impossible.  Instead… only realize the truth.  That it is not the boobs that bend, it is only yourself."

I work at a LCS, and when this cover showed up in the week’s new releases, the urge to draw a certain parallel just would not go away…
If I could’ve printed out a high-quality colour print of the Mile High Club poster and put it in front of the cover without repercussions from work, I’d have done it so fast. As it is, my little piece of paper stayed up for a decent chunk of the evening. Unfortunately, it was not busy and hardly anyone was around to see. If a feminist makes a statement in an empty room, does she make a difference? :P

Very fitting!  Those are some intense vacuum-sealed boobsocks in the Danger Girl/GI Joe cover.

It looks like her upper part is trying to escape and has already started to run. But  I would really like to see how she looks while standing. Probably like a snake woman with her left leg shorter than the right one. Ouch!

I think she’s like a snake, and she’s shedding her skin.  You can see how she’s already starting to sneak out of her old form’s butt.

Bless these breasts

Love this. xD  I think that ad forgets to mention the little thrusters that are included on some of those too.

total eclipse
Saw my husband watching this anime called total eclipse, I rarely like mecha anime anyway (it seems too same-y to me) so I wasn’t interested until I saw this bizzaro outfit. Apparently it’s necessary to be vacuum sealed into that latex thing to fly one.


At least that’s latex.  Looking at it, I wondered if that was metal armor boobsocks.

found this gem on Amazon, someone at funimation must be saying “Boob socks-a-go”. is it me or is her head doing it own thing and her left shoulder must have been sucked up by her breast.

I assume boobsock clothing requires a vacuum pump or something.

Full frontal and rear — at the SAME TIME
I read manga online, and this series (Historys Strongest Disciple Kenichi) came up on the front page when I visited this morning. I googled it and discovered that it is FULL of these kinds of poses. This was one of the more ridiculous ones I found.


And there’s kinda cameltoe too!  Forget strongest disciple, this is one of the strongest boobs and butt poses I’ve seen.  I’m seriously impressed.
