Isaiah Stephens drew these striking images of Disney Princesses in pop-culture costumes ostensibly for Halloween.click through for more drawings in full size to do them justice! These are really great.
In the “isn’t this fun and hilarious” camp we have this clothing swap where men and women swapped clothes after a picture was taken for a pretty big double-take done by Hana Pesut. Click through for more pictures.
JJ Levine poses the same model in pictures as both a man and a woman. Some of these are especially well done, and they go far beyond a simple clothing swap as they are meant to be believable. Click through for the pictures, my favourite is likely the pregnancy one! via GillianW
Quotas are ugly things, and nobody should have to deal with them. via upworthy
Sometimes you see backlash about female quotas from men, and I think it’s important to realize that quotas are the wrong way to approach things. It’s not about putting a body in there, it’s about finding qualified individuals in a non-narrow selective way. Nowhere is this more true than in the Technical Conference circuit, where the culture, mindset and approval just won’t find or hire qualified women speakers. This is starting to change, and thankfully the conversation is now shifting from “we need x women on the panels” to “how can we make this an environment women won’t hate to be in and will actually attend or want to speak at”.

Photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz splashed milk as clothes on models to recreate classic pinups. check out his website for the whole series. Obviously NSFW.
My favourite is probably this dress.
One person mentioned to me that this struck the uncanny valley, of something a little too perfect to be believable. While it’s true he used real milk splashing on skin to create the pictures, a lot of Photoshop went into making them perfect and compositing all the shots together. So I think this was a bit inevitable. I’d also argue that this aesthetic belongs to the classic pinup in the first place.
Many more pictures on his website bellow.
