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.

This looks impossible if you focus on her spine curve… but the front part of her (belly to crotch) looks okay.  My brain hurts just trying to sort this picture out!

I guess we should at least be thankful that her torso isn’t swiveling to face us.

Look at her torso. Look at it.

No! Stop making me look!

Even Samus Aran isn’t exempt…

This is a page from Nintendo Power’s official comic of Metroid Prime, which is full of fail anatomy and poses.  In this panel, Samus shows how chozo DNA apparently gives a gal extra vertebrae.

There a bunch of “what” poses on nearly every page, but this one takes the cake.

I suppose if she has a suit upgrade that turns her into a ball, there’s a slinky spine suit upgrade too.

And this is why I didn’t start off with Rob Liefeld for over 600 posts. xD
It’s just. Too. Easy.

So Axe bodyspray created it’s own comic book (which of course stars Hot Chicks™)
I love that its FIRST promo image has a boobs and butt pose. xD  Go figure.

Also there’s a video that tells us absolutely nothing about what these girls are about (but they’re HOT™!  HOT FOR YOU… presumably…)

The only commentary that comes to mind right now is: “Make it stop.”

In space, no one can hear your spine break..

It occurs to me that if you sent some of the women in this tumblr up into space, that might happen to them.  After all, their bodies seem to be unconnected, boneless sacs of liquid like substances as is, if they went into space, I could see everything flying left and right like the first picture.
