Marvel Fashion Show-10, originally uploaded by LJinto.

Taken at a comicon this last weekend, apparently this “fashion parade” was actually organised by Marvel Comics.

At least when people dress up as Tank Girl (pic below from someone’s Halloween a few years ago) they actually look they could kick some arse.

Although even Tank Girl recently got a makeover: the idea is meant to be that the punkrock look is too mainstream now, so it would be more shocking for Tank Girl to sport a more normal corporate look – with fucking heels, I kid you not. I’m glad that the winning Rock Eisteddfod Challenge entry last year went for the more retro look.

  1. Can people please quit putting action girls in stilettos? It makes NO sense!

    Desk, meet my head.

  2. About the only time I don’t mind spike heels on heroines are for the heroines who can fly. I mean, if your feet are never going to touch the ground anyway, you could fight crime wearing bunny slippers or something. (Note to self – design heroine who fights crime while wearing bunny slippers)
