gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (gwen watches skating)
So one of the things that happened at the CSOI show which sparked this whole terrible figure skating feelings spiral was that Joannie Rochette skated to Robyn's Indestructible. In a shiny black catsuit. (Here's video of the Vancouver version.)

I've been in a lot of internetless places lately, wherein I coped with boredom by making icons. Credit for the original photos goes to Tina Tyan, Brett Barden and David Carmichael, and Andrea Chempinski.

Icon meme via [personal profile] evewithanapple

1. Reply to this post with PIXELS!, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.


I like talking about icons, okay )

(Content Note: In-context, the ~sexy photos~ are taken coercively, but that's not apparent from the caps I chose?)

I have a lot of Thoughts about this scene, how it is about queer ladies co-opting the male gaze narrative inherent to pin-ups, but I'm not particularly articulate at the moment, so you're getting icons instead.

I used to be so much better at coming up with appropriate quotes/lyrics/etc for cut texts I am drawing a blank here... )

I guess this is my More Joy Day post? I sort of forgot that was today whoops.

Do you want a show all about women and their relationships? How about a period piece with a budding queer romance in? A show about the 1940s that deals with the war on a more complex level than "we fought those evil Germans"? Because it turns out that's a thing you can be watching!!

Bomb Girls, Wednesday nights on Global (if you're in Canada; if you aren't check out [livejournal.com profile] bomb_girls, they can help you)

Anyway, icons! Betty, Kate, and Betty/Kate, because I am the most predictable human. Thanks to [personal profile] evewithanapple/[livejournal.com profile] evewithanapple for the caps!

You're safe here now. I'll make sure. )

gwenfrankenstien: Bette and Rose from the Wolf House series (bette and rose)
So during the time I was waiting for my Wolf House book to show up, I made a bunch of icons out of Audrey Fox's glorious covers and promo art and such. Twenty icons, to be exact.

In conclusion I love angry queer punk nerd vampires and their kittens and so should you. Also I love messing about in photoshop.

There's this Female Character Flowchart out there that I'm sure most of you have heard of already. If you haven't, let me sum it up for you: basically, all fictional female characters fall into stereotypes and aren't "realistic." Also, this flowchart is done in a way that basically anyone can be crammed into one of their categories, as long as you ignore the more three-dimensional aspects of her characterization and focus on the most two-dimensional details available.

Seriously, people who are much more articulate than me have ranted on this subject and explained why it's such a bad thing. That's not what this post is about. You see, this post? Is simply a chance for me to go through my DW/LJ icons and post the ones that I have that feature female characters, whether by themselves, with other women, with men, or simply as part of a group (which wouldn't be whole without them).

Why? Because the thing is, these women are all awesome, in their own unique ways.

...Okay, I know I get fannish about some pretty obscure things, but a film that literally nobody outside of Toronto has seen is a little much even for me. Oops?

I make sort of compulsively make icons to deal with stress, anger, or just generally feeling like shit. And then they pile up and nothing ever happens to them. Except that I'm not letting that happen right now! I am sharing them with you, the internet! Don't you feel loved.

Not on the list due to Paypal problems that can't be resolved until my mom gets back from B.C.: The Wolf House: Fair Game, Mary Borsellino.

And now, for something completely different: The meme where people pick icons for you to talk about is going around!
Via [livejournal.com profile] mrs_laugh_track:
