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.

Heaven doesn’t feed its angels very well apparently.  And where are all of her “clothes” attaching to?

Woman unconscious. Woman orgasming in porn.  *shrug* What’s the difference?
(an explosion that ONLY disintegrates underwear is interesting too)

I’m amused by how lovingly detailed her breasts are, and it’s like, after drawing those, the artist didn’t care anymore and we have the mess that’s her (organless) torso and single-hipped legs.

I usually don’t comment on the ridiculosity of the costumes because it’s so self-evident and I’d be going on forever, but I’m just so amused by how they’re all bloody with their clothing torn and shredded, but somehow their thong straps are still holding and all that’s messed up with Lady Death’s bra is that one strap has fallen off.  Maybe I’ve underestimated just how effective battle thongs are!

I know I just said before that I don’t normally pick on the costumes, and I know this is Shi, Vampirella and Lady Death, but my friend had a caption that was too good not to share.

They escaped from a nudist colony and had to dress themselves by cutting apart a single very small outfit between the three of them.

The advantage of wearing battle thongs, is that the enemy is too busy looking at your butt to notice that your head is sliding off your shoulders.

They really have no clue what’s down there do they?

Butt and boobs pose.  Organless torso.  And NEITHER of her shoulders are in the right place! AND she’s got the boob flounder thing going.  I’m not even sure if her neck is correct.  This is frightening!  It’s like if you take off that “armor”, she’ll just fall apart.
