Things We Saw Today: Westerns Look So Much Better With Their Main Characters Genderswapped

I have the worst crush on Stasha Dean right now.

I really dig westerns, so when I heard about Re-Western, a project to genderswap some of the most iconic roles in the Western genre, I got super excited.

Gender-Swapped Jones: Nine Leading Ladies We’d Like to See Cast in Iconic Male Action Hero Roles

I recalled a comment that I read on TMS a little while back, to paraphrase it went a little bit like this: ‘Gender swapping is lazy, make your own characters!’ To me this misses the point, gender swapping characters can be a very powerful message about gender stereotyping.

Genderswapped Hawkeye And Black Widow Make This Entire Avengers Cast Fantastic

You know this Hawkeye would never call Black Widow anything less than perfect.

This entire Rule 63 lineup of the Avengers is just straight up fantastic. Agnes, an 18 year old artist from Europe, originally posted the photos on Tumblr. Not only are they fantastically done, but the casting for each character fits so well.

Ming Doyle, Erica Henderson and Other Comics Artists Give Us the Genderblended DC Movie Universe We Always Wanted

*make grabby hands*

It began simply, when Ming Doyle posted this fabulous depiction of Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne. But if you're going to give Tumblr an art prompt (draw DC comics characters as played by famous movie stars of a different gender), you better be prepared to give it a glass of milk to go with it. I mean... for the art explosion that happens next.

Not to Play Favorites, But Genderswapped “Bombshell Avengers” Was the Best Cosplay at WonderCon

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

Hey, I call it like I see it. But I'm also biased, because I really enjoy an old-fashioned clothing aesthetic, as opposed to other old-fashioned things like fewer rights for women and penicillin not having been invented. But I'm getting sidetracked. This cosplay group, photographed by Justin Davidson (more pics at the link), is amazing. I'm giving up on cosplay, because I don't think I can improve on that Red Skull.

It’s High Time For Disney Characters In High Fashion

million dollar lady

Or, if we're being even fancier, haute couture, hon hon hon. Fashion design student Sasha (aka Sashii or Sashiiko) has illustrated this stunning series of Disney characters—some princesses, some (occasionally genderswapped) villains, sadly no Gus Gus from Cinderella—wearing stunning outfits that I'm going to go ahead and guess none of our readers could afford. Unless any of our readers are millionaires, in which case we'd love to have a second David Tennant cardboard standee in the office. Or the actual David Tennant. He does appearances, right? (via RocketNews24; thanks to tipster Rose-Heather!)

Let’s Get Down To Business: To Look at Some Cute Sketches of Disney Women as Men

Pretty Pretty Princess

This post, a collection of Disney princess screencaps seamlessly edited to look like teenage men rather than teenage women has become quite popular on Tumblr this week, probably because of the site's fascination with gender politics. Okay, it's also a good deal because of Male!Esmerelda, I'm guessing. I mean look at that guy. Judging by some similar hairstyles, I'd guess that Miyuli was inspired by that post to create some full character sketches of folks like Ariel, Megara, and all four leads of Frozen as genderbent versions of themselves.
