massive hip dislocation observed

It's an epidemic!

...don't get me wrong, I'm glad that the Spider-Girl tween skirts are a reasonable length, but it kinda defeats the purpose when you have your tween models standing with their hips stuck out like Greg Land lightboxed them from a lingerie catalog. At least there's not much exposed skin on the "Emma Frost Tween."

(What's with the American Dream? Did they just not get the rights to the name "Captain America?")

I think it was lydiabell who said that any costume advertised with a little girl posing like that was no costume she would ever buy for her daughter. Of course, we were discussing "Occupational" costumes for little girls that included little French maid outfits.

Yeah, these are a step up. The posing, though, makes me wonder, "Doesn't that HURT?"

Certainly makes mine hurt to look at.

And I speak as a former gymnast.

American Dream onna motorcycle

There's actually a character named American Dream, from the same 'verse as Spider-Girl. She wouldn't be caught dead in that outfit, though.

Ahh! Thank you. I have not read much Marvel for a loooooong time, and had no interest in their futureverse books.

Apparently Shannon Carter/American Dream is 'the heir to the Captain America legacy'. Steve's Supergirl.

Serious case of 'why won't my hips unsway' there.

Well, girls that age haven't had their hips widen yet, so they have to stand hipshot to make it look like they have a waist.

Because god forbid we see a little girl with a body like a little boy's. That'd probably make someone somewhere gay.

Ugh. Scrolling down as the skirts get shorter and shorter just makes me sad. Gender expectations aside, who thinks this a good idea for parents to surf with their kids, marketing-wise?
