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

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.

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

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?

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

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.

Geena Davis Is The Most Badass Baddass To Ever Badass [VIDEO]

You might recall we recently posted a photo of Geena Davis donning her old A League of Their Own costume while holding her professional archery gear. Well now we know the context. The actress and creator of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media teamed up with Funny or Die for a spectacular shoot (shoot being used here in two different contexts). I am now bumping Ms. Davis to the top of my list for women who should star in the female Expendables. And also, anything else.
