    Ooh, I'm not sure I've actually had the strawberry one! :0 Definitely gonna have to try it sometime!
  2. Feeling kinda of sore right now because as of last week I have lost two important friendships this year. :(

    But at the same time I have library books, and there are many art supplies and a very pretty and fuzzy kitty in my bedroom. So the world isn't all terrible.

    Is there a male equivalent of the hypersexualised stereotypical "hooker" outfit? I'm trying to think what the social connotations of March Eridan would be in Alternia's sometimes-alleged matriarchy and the closest I can think of is a woman drowning everyone around her in Axe, which is kind of uncommon in human society and hard to draw.

    Those aren't male-specific in the way tube tops and miniskirts are assumed to be, though. Girls wear tiny shorts all the time.

    That's because the concept of 'hooker clothes' is deeply gendered so you'll have to go and come up with 'very sexualized outfit But For Dudes' yourself through the power of 1) framing 2) clothes that enhance whatever sexual characteristic is seen as desireable in the cultural context.

    I assure you if you slap down a dude Art with revealing, tight clothing, people will get what you're angling at.

    People get what the artist is angling at if said artist pays loving attention to feet too. I promise it's not that hard.

    Thanks for the suggestions. While drawing a genderflipped version would be fun, my main point is to figure out the social attitudes involved in a world with different gender roles. I tried to imagine a human version of the scenario and, as pointed out, there doesn't seem to be one.

    ETA: Maybe instead of "hypersexualised" I need to be thinking "desperately advertising", which is the first assumption of a human when seeing March Eridan. I guess Rule 63 ME would instead be wearing a ton of Axe and a fedora for similar connotations?

    Controversial opinion: Hot Fuzz counts as a folk horror comedy movie.

    i’ve always considered it a gothic horror myself. (also simultaneously an anti-copaganda buddy cop movie and a romcom.)

    Personally i find a read on what is essentially mildly sexualized scene or emo depending on artist as 'desperately advertizing' a bit offensive and questionable, anyways if you want masculine specific hyper sexualized looks commonly associated with Easy Availability/sexual For Consumption-ness of amab/assumed masculine bodies, Chippendales' sets and the movie(s? i think?) magic mike exist

    It being Eridan in particular is what makes me think the miniskirt and crop top combo were supposed to come off that way. And I did think of Chippendales, but then you'd have a topless woman, and she certainly wouldn't be getting attention for being dressed like a man.

    Saw this on twitter and had a flashback to my teen tumblr days. Then I put my "japanese name" through google translate to see if it actually meant anything and got

    chippendales shows generally start more dressed than shirtless lol
    I'm still questioning the vibe you're trying to arrive at but there are several culturally accepted versions of masc presenting sexually provocative afab people in queer spaces, especially alt fashion queer spaces, maybe look at what's in editorial fashion shoots some. or yknow. google "marlene dietrich tuxedo". you don't need to reinvent the wheel
