I understand that this is period dress, but how exactly is this woman breathing? She must be panting to just to keep alive because there is absolutely no way she could take a deep breath. A second look not only caused me to confirm my original conclusion but to decide that the barbie doll is far more proportionate than the woman on the cover of this book.
This cover gives new meaning to the phrase bootylicious. This is hardly a surprise as the media tends to believe that there is no such thing as a flat assed Black woman. There is no doubt that girlfriend has got back however, it would not nearly as noticeable if she didn’t appear to have a 15 inch waist. I don’t understand the point of giving her strong arms to give the appearance of being fit and then add a waist that is enough to make one wonder how she is supporting the top half of her body. Considering she is holding that heavy sword, it’s a wonder that she doesn’t simply collapse. Yes, some women are naturally curvy, but nature tends to design female bodies in a way that supports both their frames and their weight.
I... I... wow... I’m actually somewhat at a loss to comment here. Are her arms dislocated? Is she twisting them behind like that for a reason? And if her arm is long enough that her inner elbow is just visible over her hip, then shouldn’t we see the lower half of her arm? And her breasts? What is actually happening there? That’s a whole lot of titty tape going on behind the scenes (and magical that somehow turns off the gravity). What makes the whole thing vaguely more ridiculous is the normally dressed and proportionate woman stood next to her
And I’m not even going to comment on the clothes. Really, is there a need?
