So I found this on Google (if someone knows the original creator of this gif, please let me know so I can source it) and I felt it needs to be here.
Because it’s beautiful.
when you want to look cute but don’t want to be harassed by men #justgirlythings
I really appreciate the feedback, the flattery, and the general support for my own change and Rabbit’s change. We don’t get a lot of troll comments around here, which is amazing!
I will admit that my change both personal and on stage is an emotional challenge for me. To do so in a public light and look to be accepted is tough. When folks say things like “he was hotter as a male” or “I miss the old Rabbit” it does hurt my feelings. But that’s not without me understanding where you’re coming from.
Preference is fair. Critique is fair. Designs are subjective. But going through this transformation is a trying time for me, as it is with all transitioning transgender people. I would ask that you consider the difficulty transgender people go through, and with me, my art is paired to my performance and my femininity. To be perceived as anything lesser than I once was is hard to swallow.I respect aesthetic preferences. I can understand my art isn’t always going to be well received by everyone. I would just like folks to consider me as a human being before posting stuff relating to my gender. I do my best to deal with it and show understanding. Will you imagine Isabella and Rabbit having to get approval from the audience to be themselves?
Much, much, love,
Riley and I briefly spoke about what happens to Walter Workers with darker skin types. Since there’s really no actual science behind Walter Girl transformations (it’s a little magical) …the closest you could get is taking it as pigment being mutated and desaturated. I imagine not every Walter Worker would turn white- but literally…color is sapped from their face. With blue blood, Walter Workers could probably come in more of a variety of colors than you might originally think. Not just ivory white.
For example, meet Riley’s friend Aysha, who did a wonderful Walter Girl cosplay.
I love this concept because it shows what might happen to a Walter Girl of color. And she’s got beautiful gray skin. Riley and Aysha argue that some people could come out as different shades of gray. Like blue-gray or purple-gray.
Walter Girl Carolina, who performed with us in our live shows, chose a white makeup though- and I think it was probably just for symmetries sake with the co-worker at her side. Plus, I can imagine a gray Walter Girl being mistaken for a robot even more-so than they already do!
Stage-reasoning aside, your Walter Workers could be just as varied as you see fit. We’ve seen Gabi’s Walter Faun for example…and in a world where magic is real, well…the possibilities are endless.
I hope this post was inspiring to you all as seeing her cosplay was to me! I hope you guys continue to come up with cool characters and outfits for the inhabitants of our crazy lil world. :)

Just a reminder to the world that there is this glorious feminist thing called the Hawkeye Initiative. Where people draw Hawkeye (and possibly other avengers) in various sexual poses that comic artists generally depict women in.
the greatest thing in the universe.
