Tumblr’s Newest Tiny Fandom: Viking Magical Girls



Shannon is the artist behind the tumblr Damn It Feels Good to be a Fangirl, and while her day job is working for Archer, I’ve fallen quite in love with an original creation: Viking Magical Girls (and their allies, the Heavy Metal Magical Girls). Her first (above) went up late last month, and folks are already drawing their own and planning cosplays. Indeed, all is well with the world. You can see more of the VMG’s and their transformation sequences at Shannon’s tumblr tag for the series.

    I needed this today. I’m going to run around imagining that I can drink from a magic horn and go kick ass.

    I’m sorry…but I hate that hairstyle with such a burning passion. Whenever someone I know gets a hair cut like that I try avoid every situation where they may ask what I think. Actually it feels pretty good to get that off my chest -_-

    A+, would paint on the side of my van again.

  • Viv

    These are AMAZING. I want to become friends with her.

    I may have to get tumblr because of this.

    Awesome! Also, kudos to the artists for having a woman of colour as a Magical Viking Girl.

    I think the Artist mentioned that the Death Metal magical girl is more like Sailor Pluto, she only comes out when S*&t’s about to get real. I don’t think she’s part of a separate magical girl group. I could be wrong though!

    The need a Sailor Mars one that’s ice instead of fire. She transforms into a Jotun.

    “So I decided my new life goal is to become a magical girl viking
    Because I love metal. I love metal so much. It’s the music that calms me down the most and I fucking love metal heads. Everything about it is great.
    I just also wish I could be super fucking cute while also being a metal head. I mean I do it anyway but imagine if I could do it BETTER. LIKE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Be super brutal and badass but also super femme and adorable!!
    I want to chug beer and smash it then explode into rainbow sparkles and bows and get a cute little outfit with a little skirt and a fur cloak and take my sparkly weapon and go cut off the head of a dragon and write it’s name on my face in it’s own blood and drink some more and giggle adorably and have a talking pet that instructs me and my comrades about our magical powers. That’s what I want out of my life.
    Also I might have to draw more of these and by might I MEAN FUCKING YES”

    There will never be a better artist’s statement.
