  1. We Heartily Approve of This Little Girl’s List of Kick-Ass Fictional Ladies

    I am no man!

    Fantasy and young adult literature can get a bad rap sometimes, but Mia's list of some of her favorite heroines is a perfect breakdown of why strong female characters like Katniss or Divergent's Tris are so important. Reminder: you don't need to be in the target demographic to benefit from reading these character's stories, either. The qualities they embody are always relevant, whether you're a young adult or just a plain old grownup.

  2. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Disney Infinity 2.0‘s Brand-New Playable Female Characters And The Future Of Ladies In-Game

    Jasmine! Merida! Maleficent! Tinkerbell!

    Today, Disney announced the release of eight new figures for Disney Infinity 2.0 as part of their Disney Originals line - and half of the playable characters are female. We spoke with executive producer John Vignocchi about these new characters, who's playing the game, and what kind of inclusivity we might be seeing in the future.

  3. Modern-Day Disney and Dreamworks Characters Are Icons of Style

    Why Not Do It With Some Style?

    Can we all agree that How to Train Your Dragon's Astrid should be in more of these series of artistic reinterpretations of animated characters? Because seriously, she's the best. She's a Viking Quidditch star. So all my thanks to Tumblr user Punziella for including her alongside stalwarts like Brave's Merida, Frozen's Anna and Elsa, etc. Now can more fanartists give Hercules's Meg the love she deserves? And Tiana. I would, but my talent barely extends to stick figures.

  4. Disney’s Anna, Elsa, Rapunzel, Kuzco and More, if They Were Modern College Kids

    eye candy

    Why, you ask? Why redesign Disney characters as modern college students with a sense of fashion? Well, because some of us are good at throwing closet cosplays together. And some of us are good a drawing. And some of us are good at neither, but are great at looking at fan art.

  5. The Cosplay of C2E2 2014!

    Today in Awesome

    Did you get to the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo this weekend? Well, neither did we. Fortunately, the internet has provided all the C2E2 cosplay that we could ever want to look at. So let's look at it!

  6. If You Had the Chance to Cosplay Merida As a Crossbow-Wielding Motorcyclist, Would You?

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Cosplayer Zoisite-Virupaksha would, and boy are we glad. At her deviantART page you can see other Merida cosplay, both Pixar's version and modern-day (including a shot of her on the Iron Throne, and whoops, I have a few favorite for whom I think should rule Westeros now!), but this biker gang version is our favorite. She and Daryl Dixon should join forces and use their crossbows to wipe evil off the face of the Earth.

  7. Disney Characters Haunted By The Shadows Of Their Villains

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Joe Alexander has created some striking minimalist images of Disney's good and bad guys. The good guys get the spotlight, as usual, but it's interesting to see how many villains have an iconic silhouette.

  8. Stop What You’re Doing And Look at Jessica Chastain As Merida

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    This is the latest entry in Annie Leibovitz "Disney Dream Portrait" series, in which celebs are photographed as Disney characters to promote Disney parks. (Here's Jennifer Hudon as Princess Tiana, for example.) The hair. (via: The Disney Blog) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  9. If Merida Was A Cosplayer, She Might Cosplay Hawkeye, And It Might Look Like This

    Bear Time

    A while back, DeviantArtist Brianna Garcia created a fantastic image mashing together two famous archers - Merida and Hawkeye. Now, cosplayer Lisa Marie has brought it to life. Filed under: "Dammit, why didn't I think of this?" (though I have done William Merida Wallace) You know, considering Disney owns Marvel now, any chance we could get an alternate universe one-shot where Merida is that universe's Hawkeye?

  10. Series of Real-World Heroines As Disney Princesses Is Snarktastically Wonderful

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    If you’ll remember, Disney’s redesign of Brave’s Merida kicked up quite the controversy earlier this year, causing many to be upset by how Disney crushes their princesses’ individuality in favor of creating generic, glitter-tastic images for them to slap on products and sell. Among those less-than-impressed is artist David Trumble, who worked with educational psychologist Lori Day to parody Disney’s “princessification” by illustrating what it would be like if the same treatment were applied to real-life female role models. Hit the jump to see the entire series and some quotes from Trumble on his inspiration.
