How to Be Successful at Courting 101 with Violet!
The first in a series of weekly Rat Queens webcomics going live every Wednesday until September.
Various female superheroes and Rule 63 heroes in practical costume redesigns.
functional costumes that look good will always get a reblog.
Seriously, the bare-shoulders+covered forearm thing does SO MUCH for emphasizing power. Why isn’t THAT Power Girl’s dominant costume trope, instead of an awful porn thing that (does some research) has been constantly coming back for the better part of four decades?
Hnnnn yes yes yes!
SO, AUGUST IS (maybe not officially yet) MARVELOUS MARVEL LADIES MONTH
What does that mean? Well, my friend Fel noticed that someone was doing an appreciation week for Janet van Dyne, and we thought that we should do more appreciation for other under-appreciated female characters, and from there the idea came that we’d dedicate a whole month to these women! And I know that the picture I chose is kind of silly because the front ladies are pretty well known but there wasn’t a lot of variety in the women drawn for “women of marvel” pictures.
Which characters are you talking about? I have a list here that is currently still growing because we literally just started thinking about this today; so these are not all of the characters we were thinking of honoring, but it’s a start!
What would happen? We were thinking that on each day of the month we’d have one to three/four (depending on how long the list gets) ladies that the day would be dedicated to, and during that day whoever wanted to participate could create photosets or maybe someone could make a masterpost or people could just post a lot of pictures and panels about the characters in general! I’m also thinking (and I’m going to ask Def for some help on this, since she was the mastermind behind the marvel tumblrcon) of asking people for introductory posts on characters, if they want, which would give a basic rundown of the character’s history personality and powers, along with where you could find said character. I’m not sure about that yet but once I figure it all out, if you’re interested in writing up a post for a character just shoot me an ask!
But what about Sif/Carol/Emma/Storm? I was thinking that the majority of the month would be dedicated to those characters who really aren’t talked about much (if at all), and then maybe the last day/couple of days would be a BIG NAME LADIES type of deal, so then we could appreciate our favorites who are also extremely popular too! Because really, can you ever get enough Marvel ladies?
Like I said, this is something we came up with literally an hour ago, so it’s still a big hectic tangled mess of ideas and stuff. But we’re going to be working on organizing things and getting more people involved so stay tuned!
I now have this mental image of a Black Fury Ragabash from the 50s/60s who went to great lengths to project the image of the Perfect 50s Housewife, and then proceeded to fuck shit up for those who pissed her off/underestimated her while fooling everyone into thinking she was June Cleaver. Poisoned cupcakes, household ‘accidents’, reputations and lives ruined with the right words in the right ears…
Meanwhile, she’s driving her tribal sisters crazy because she appears to conform to the Submissive Housewife ‘ideal’, and she gives no fucks what they think. “We fight the fight all in our own way. Cupcake?”
For some reason, this amuses me.
…I do not have the time for a WoD game. I do not have the time for a WoD game. I do not have the time for a WoD game…
I’m torn between evil cackling or sobbing because neither do I, but I have so many ideas.
AND YET STILL TEMPTED!
