You may or may not be aware that run another blog in addition to this one called Girls Love Superheroes. The blog is devoted to showcasing young girls demonstrating that superheroes are not a “boy” thing.
My day is always made better by opening an email or submit with a little girl dressed up like a DC or Marvel superhero (so keep them coming!) The costumes range from store bought Halloween one to elaborate homemade ones.
And you know, some of the latter are even better than what appear in the comic pages. To prove it a Tumblr artist has taken these costumes and shown how they would look in comics And results are great!
Here’s a young female Green Lantern.
Gee how much better than say:
Oh wait, I forgot right now there are no female Green Lanterns in comics.
But go check her take on Powergirl!
