"I'm the Hero of the Story"

Okay... so I know I'm a nerd, but does anyone out there NOT love superheroes?

Above images found at weheartit.com

And isn't this print from AshleyG on etsy perfect?

At this point, in my blog planning and inspired by Ashley, I thought "And every girl is a superhero sometimes" too. So... here's where I go feminist haha.
I love GIRL POWER!!!! Seriously. I will tolerate a lot of horrible movies just to see a girl kick butt for once. That being said, the following are not necessarily horrible movies, just great female superheroes!

 Big Bang Theory - funny, but okay fails to qualify


 Lara Croft in Tomb Raider


Sarah Connor in Terminator

And my personal favourite, because she's still so feminine while she saves the day Eowyn in Lord of the Rings. The scene where she reveals she's a woman, amazing girl power moment, haha.

If I could be any superhero, Robin Hood is first, but she's a close second for sure.
I also found this interesting article, about girl superheroes. I haven't read it in it's entirety yet, but if I link it here at least I can find it again.

And hilarious! A family set of capes by Pip and Bean!

Good night loves!

For Halloween, I decided that all I wanted to do was dress up as a kick ass female. I picked Riply in Alien. <3

You'd be happy to hear although I probably told you already that I have a few superhero-related toys - a 1960s/early 70s Batmobile, an Ectomobile from Ghostbusters 2 and three authentic micromachines brand micromachines Back to the Future 2 cars (delorean, taxi and cop car)
