2015/08/23

A chain mail bikini’s impractical. A chain mail tube top’s just a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

Well, at least all that effort wasn't completely wasted. :)

If the shoe fits, wear it. If the shoe doesn’t fit…well, you’ll have to wear it anyway because they don’t make them in your size. :\

Meowch...I don't even want to think about what kind of bunions those shoes would end up causing...

You know, between this time and last time, I’m pretty sure that Supergirl‘s fashion sense died with Argo City and the rest of the planet Krypton.

Yeesh, just because you're out to stop a dangerous fanatic, doesn't mean that you have to dress the part.

Remember that brief period during the 1970s when Supergirl moonlighted as a go-go dancer?

And that abomination should probably have remained in your bag.

For everyone out there who thinks that girls cosplaying as characters from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic look stupid, I’ve got news for you: the characters from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic cosplaying as themselves look infinitely worse.

Can't sleep...ponies will eat me... ;_;

If anyone remembers Syndrome and Dollar Bill’s fates in The Incredibles and Watchmen, respectively – or even Edna Mode’s extended diatribe in the former – you’d come to the conclusion that wearing a capes is a very bad idea when it comes to superhero and supervillain costumes. So why do so many members of the spandex crowd wear them? Well, according to Empowered, you may as well chalk this one up to insecurity and body image issues.

I wonder if J-Lo and Kim Kardashian wear capes in the Empowered Universe?

While the above panel from Empowered – Volume 1 (March 2007) by Adam Warren answers half of the question, it just calls more attention to the unanswered half: namely why so many male superheroes and supervillains wear capes. Perhaps the world will never know.

Special thanks to Skadi the Slamazon of Stuporheroes for inspiring this blog post with one of her own. 🙂

When it comes to superheroes, both genders are equally capable of making bad costuming decisions.

So THAT’S what those are for!

Note to female readers: if you’re extremely body conscious, then becoming a superheroine probably isn’t for you.

Think sexual harassment in the workplace is bad? Try SUPER sexual harassment.
