Keep Your Shirt On

I found a few interesting articles last week about functional female clothing when fighting. Basically, keep your shirt on. Unless you are Jason Statham. ‘Cause damn. Every time he gets ready to fight in a scene I yell at the TV, “Take your shirt off!” And you know? He mostly obliges. In all seriousness, while Jason Statham chooses to take his ripped to shreds shirt off his ripped abs and actually uses said shirt in a fight, Wonder Woman’s costume seems it would do her more harm than good if she were to get in a drag out dirty fight with a villain that didn’t mind a pair of boobs appearing. Check out Aaron Diaz’s (Dresden Codak) illustration of why Wonder Woman’s costume is problematic in a fight. Also read this great article on functional female armor, from someone who makes female armor. [via PinIt]

"I confuse you! With my shirt... and my abs!"

Hark! a Vagrant

I occasionally read this pretty funny webcomic, Hark! a Vagrant. Which often makes fun of historical figures and Heathcliff-type characters from the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen. Sometimes the comic delves into super heroes. And it is always very witty and awesome.

Justice League Fashion Week

So, I love the art work of the artist who draws Dresden Codak. He has a tumblr page here. Recently he has rebooted the clothing line of the Justice League and it is awesome. I love the thought he has given to each character’s outfit, such as Wonder Woman, there is a lot of thought into the design instead of asking how skimpy can we go. A line of thought that has permeated the industry for a while now.
