One of the commissioned photos from Cluedog for a recent Mer-Monday was recently colored by Kimbawest Let’s take a look at this surprise, almost Halloween, treat.
It looks good! For some reason though, I never realized how terrible fish mermaid’s color scheme would be! Even if he had a red fin where flounder’s blue fin would be, it’s bad. Then again, I never expected the stripes that Cluedog gave him… anyways, both incarnations of this pic are really interesting takes!
Evelyn here is a mermaid that is my last commission from artist ClueDog. I don’t have a lot to say about this one, which is surprising as it is based off of another piece that ClueDog did that can be seen to the right.
I assume since there are two pictures, one as a human and one as a mermaid, that it could be argued that there should be a story behind it, maybe something similar to The Little Mermaid? *shrugs*
Evelyn joins the other three mermaid pictures that the artist did for me of Flounder as a mermaid.
Anyways, what I think I’m trying to get at, is that with my latest commissions, I’m wishing everyone a Happy Mer-Monday!
Yesterday I received a surprise over on my deviantart… some of my commissions from Zoe Crocket! I commissioned Zoe to further illustrate an idea that I had previously another artist… rule 63 mermaid version of Flounder from The Little Mermaid!
I showed Zoe the previous one that I commissioned from artist Kittyhawk, and suggested the loose idea of some reaction shots of Ariel as a fish might be cool. What I got was really cool, with backgrounds and even more characters.
The first one was awesome enough, however, I love the daggers that Ariel is starring at her former best friend. Did he steal her body, get a head to tail dye job, and strut her stolen stuff to get her man? Anyways, whatever type of fish Ariel is now, she… he(?) is extra salty.
The last picture needs to be seen in all of it’s glory. While the mermaid part of the picture is at a minimum, you have an awesome shot of Prince Eric and his bros, bro-ing out as they do, throwing out nets, catching fish if not ladies, and totally having Flounder swooning over him.
ERIC! SHE’S CAT-FISHING YOU BRO! FOR ALL WE KNOW THE MASCULINE ONES WITH BEARDS ARE THE ONES WITH THE LADY FISH PARTS… I MEAN, WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW THAT WORKS… EXACTLY!
Okay… we know that Ursala’s shell necklace can give under water folk female anatomy. Things will… you know… probably work out… probably.
For more of Zoe Crockette’s art, you can go to her gallery on her Deviant Art, but be warned that it is NSFW.
One of the things that I love about Darkstalkers is the fact that there are still moves in the game that I have never seen before. I was searching for Anakaris’ curse where he turns Morrigan into a bat and other characters into small animals or dolls etc… and instead I found his Pharaoh Decoration… which combines the best of Demitri’s Midnight Bliss move and Anakaris’ Pharaoh Curse. If I had known that this move was a thing, I’d have been doing this the entire time.
You know, I used to argue that Capcom was full of it when they said that The Darkstalkers characters transform too much in their game and that that was why they did not want to make a new game… but now I am starting to believe them.
In Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, also refereed to as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, there was 5 male characters and only one female character, and she wore pink and a skirt. Now, the American version made the yellow ranger less of a Boi and more of a Trini, but the ratio was still far from even, 4:2.
But maybe that is too tasteful? Without a skirt, how are they supposed to know that she is a FEMALE Green Ranger?
Cosplayer Sonni Aralynn solved this problem! Now, her take looks less baggy than the actual fit/fabric from the tv show.
Also, I don’t know if she has the white diamonds on her green… dress? Tunic? What do you call the top portion of The Pink Ranger’s outfit? It is two major pieces instead of one, right? Gah… I thought I knew what these costumes were when I watched them so long ago! Anyways, better fit, stretchier fabric? The costume looks very good… but maybe too tasteful and not rule 63 anime waifu kawaii desu, right?
Well, deviant artist Kaskachan has you covered on that front! Unfortunately… all of the other originals get involved as well. So… Jason is Sailor Mars? Nifty!
But what about Tommy’s Dragonzord? Well… I was not able to find any fanart I had to go far down the rabbit hole but I did find something!
Goku-Senpai (NSFW gallery), also a deviant artist, did the following art work of not just Dragonzord, but her in battle mode as well!
I was terrified that I was going to have to be the one who commissioned this after my original inability to find her. The trick was searching for ‘female Dragonzord’ and not things like rule 63.
AND WHY did I bring you these Mighty Gender Bent Rangers and their Zords? Because it’s Sunday, and everything around me is closed. Useless days sometimes end up with some pretty wild searches, huh?
I get a type of sick satisfaction from The Yellow Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that a lot of people wont understand. Let me explain, The original Japanese team only had one female character, The Pink Ranger. Yellow one was the male character Boi. Yes, they gender bent a boy character named Boi! It’s hilarious, right?
I love the fact that this stylized toy version from the movie is very much a woman. It should be noted that Trini, the original Yellow Power Ranger, was swapped out for Aiesha by the time the first MMPR movie had come out, and that the toy to the left is from that.
I just love this geeky fact. I’m sorry! I was going through some pictures on my phone and I just had to share!
I try to post things on Fridays that are about women in some sort of way, or rather… I have been failing to do that for the most part. I decided to post this video I discovered today that detailed the differences between the terms Transgender vs. Transexual. I think it is informative/interesting.
Gender, in general, is a hot button topic, and things are well… confusing. Below is a chart that I found off of pinterest, so sadly I do not know who originally created it, that shows… I’m going to go with almost all of the differences in umm… gender? I guess?
