AHHH I just realized I could probably do a greaser/chola-ish punisher cosplay now? Instead of just chicana like I had planned???
Damn. He looks good in a regular suit, too. Love this art style.
The Scully Effect
One of the most frustrating aspects of this scarcity is that we know just how significant an influence powerful female, scientist role models can have on young women.
Perhaps the most prominent example of this power has come to be known as the “Scully Effect.” Named for Special Agent Dana Scully, the medical doctor and FBI agent who was one half of the investigative team on “The X-Files”, the Scully Effect accounts for the notable increase in women who pursued careers in science, medicine, and law enforcement as a result of living with Dana Scully over the nine years “The X-Files” ran on Fox.
The show has been off the air for more than a decade. Yet the character of Dana Scully remains a powerful example of how a dynamic female character whose primary pursuit is science—not romantic relationships—can have a lasting impact on our culture.

Growing increasingly alarmed by the physics of this. (Ahhhh, and thank you guys so much for the love ;~:! I guess I need to give it time and probably some hair product to be happy with it.)
I just wanted to share my thoughts on a recent comment I got about my Deadpool Dressed as Phoenix cosplay because I couldn’t help but find it both amusing and fascinating at the same time.So here’s the costume and below is the comment where I’m referred to as “just tit in a deadpool mask taking a picture”It’s very odd to know that there are people out there that think of me as a “tit”. After all, I have a whole human body attached to that aforementioned tit, not to mention a SECOND tit! By which tit is he referring to me as? Righty or Lefty?! I fear I may never know!Anyway, since my costume seems to have been misunderstood, I have illustrated what a “tit in a deadpool mask taking a picture” would actually look like, just to clear up the confusion.There we go! Badass! Maybe I’ll do that one next year! (But where will I find such a tiny camera?!)Now that we have this all cleared up, I’m excited to get to the SECOND half of why this amuses me so much.The dude doesn’t know his Deadpool.Deadpool actually DOES dresses up as the Phoenix. Because why wouldn’t he? Makes a person feel pretty, just like he says.I’m so happy that someone pointed out the critic’s mistake to him. I mean, he clearly still thinks of me as a “tit”, but perhaps in the future he may think other “tits” in costumes he doesn’t recognize MAY know what they’re doing. Maybe he could learn to respect a “tit”? *Gasp*, Maybe even one day grow to love or befriend a “tit”? This could be the beginning of an era of healing for this sad fellow!
So I suppose the moral is, if you wanna hate on a person in a costume, know your material before you open your mouth or touch your keyboard. It’ll help maintain the illusion that you’re not an idiot. Just tryin’ to help out mean-spirited, dehumanizing critics of the future. They seem to need all the help they can get, because I can’t imagine that they are happy people.
We’re damn close to some dude bro complaining about all the Deadpools in red costumes because he’s only read Uncanny X-Force
Karen Gillan-Guardians of the galaxy behind the scenes
The one major problem I had with the Guardians film was the handling of Gamora. Now I understand this is the cinematic universe and the stuff from the comics gets changed, a lot. But changing Gamora and Thanos’ relationship from loving adopted father/daughter to straight up revenge, robs Gamora of some great character development.
Mainly how Thanos was a loving father figure to her who taught her everything. Yet they grow apart because of their differing ideology. Taking down a loved one because you know it’s the right thing to do. It’s that inner conflict that makes that decision hard. That’s what was missing in the movie. I hope it’s rectified in the sequel.
