Convention Exclusive IDW My Little Pony Issue #5
This deserves a reblog because it’s adorable and perfection.
I think it’s really interesting that with all the Merida complaints which are flooding my dash like crazy, they stick the same 1 or 2 pieces of artwork alongside it as if marketing artwork doesn’t vary between the 10,000 pieces of merchandise there will be.
Interestingly enough, this is the one that was released with announcement of her coronation.
Complete with round face, very full hips, small neutral lips, apart eyes, thicker ( than the other princesses ) eyebrows, unruly hair and even weapons ( which is the worst thing to complain about. Rapunzel isn’t marketed with her frying pan. Mulan isn’t marketed with her sword. Merida has and sometimes uses a bow, it’s not her third arm. )
I’m so sick of seeing/hearing this everywhere. TONS of little girls like ‘pretty princesses’ and affiliate that with being pretty and sparkly. Little girls didn’t like Merida because her waist is ‘larger’ than the other princesses ( she’s still, by media standards, skinny, even in 3D ). Little girls like the princesses simply because they like the movies. They like that they are brave, funny and have anthropomorphic, silly animals alongside them.
I would love love love to see someone go out on the street with a picture of the old and new Merida and show it to girls around 4 years old and ask them what they think of each. I bet you they’ll say both are pretty and have no concern or even notice anything anyone’s complaining about. ( And then I bet there’d be the smart kid who would state that the movie one looks different because she’s not drawn or something ).
I really don’t have anything else to say on this…I don’t know why I even bothered writing this other than the fact it was interesting that this was the official image released with her coronation announcement but isn’t used or spreading like wildfire in all the ‘redesign’ rage.
OMFG THIS IS THE BEST
I hope this won best in show because alsihksdfhailsdfhjisdjfsldkjfs (or at least best skit)
Oh hey I know them haha
shit i forgot to reblog this and its one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen
The Avengers need good press: in which Xavier thinks that it’s a freaking good idea (but Logan doesn’t).
All of these seem like a good life-choice.
But you know that could be the alcohol talking.
