Last Saturday, I went to our favorite theater and watched Wonder Woman in 3D with Alex. I will do a proper post all about the film after I see it again so I have a refreshed outlook, but let me just tell you that it was amazing. The soundtrack, the cinematography was breathtaking and the autonomy both Diana and Trevor had was absolutely refreshing.
I shared a small tear, but it wasn't sadness, it was literally how proud I was to be alive at a time that a film about a female hero could be created with such a refreshing amount of intersectionality in their feminism. DC really messed up not using their PR budget to the fullest, they really failed to make ms. Jenkins a Glass Cliff, her film was the best live action thing DC has made in decades.
In Monday's post, I shared a picture of me posing next to the display for Wonder Woman. I wanted to do a before and an after, but when I went back to where I remembered seeing it last, it wasn't there. It really made me unhappy that the film had only been out for two days, and they had already gotten rid of it, so I had to make do with the lit backdrop of her poster.
My dress is from Sourpuss Clothing and is created by Hellbunny. One of the things I like the most about sourpuss is that they have plus sizes. I'm annoyed that plus sizes are a thing, you should make clothing that is going to fit all women, you shouldn't have to separate and categorize them that way, but I would rather have a special grouping, then not able to wear it at all I suppose.
We went to the store after the film and me still being full of fluffy good feelings about Wonder Woman, went slightly silly with the purchasing of her wares. It was awesome to me, she had pretty much her own aisle, full of dolls completely with action moves, she could pull an arrow, or put up her shield, they had pillows and throws, t-shirts, and a sword with a button that made 6 different battle sounds.
Now... Let's be honest here, out of the things I just listed, what do you think I purchased? Spoiler, it wasn't the pillows and covers. I literally battled with myself for 10 minutes not to buy the barbie dolls.... I instead went with two t-shirts, the sword, and a poster. Also, in case you guys were not aware, I am an ABSOLUTE dork, and yes, I am in love with the sword, I plan on displaying it on a shelf in the living room.
