American Gods 1.07 “A Prayer for Mad Sweeney”
Following her brief reunion with Shadow, Laura turns to an unlikely travel companion to find her way back to life; Mad Sweeney’s long, winding, and often-tragic past is explored.
Wonder Woman is getting a movie. Wonder Woman is getting an epic origin story. Wonder Woman is the main character in a massive blockbuster and she’s not going to be sidelined, shoved into a secondary position, or going to made to look like she’s weak or less than a male. She’s not going to put in a box, labeled romantic interest for no reason than to make her seem more feminine. The male in the story is secondary to her, and will never be made primary over her. Wonder Woman is directed by a woman, made to resonate with women, and not to be objectified by men. Fucking Wonder Woman is happening, and it’s amazing
I thought this was interesting…Easter Parade is an old favorite in my family and years ago, we noticed something…this is a shot from the actual film. Judy wears a white hat, white dress, and pink gloves.
This is the image used for the VHS cover we had…but it’s colored incorrectly, giving her a white hat, pink dress, and white gloves.
I’ve also seen it where the hat is pink as well
The original dress was definitely white or ivory, although it has yellowed with age
But in American Gods, Media’s version of the costume is white hat, pink dress, pink gloves…which doesn’t match any of them exactly. I can only imagine this was done deliberately, although I’m not sure why. I love to hear the costumer talk about this, esp since it’s a movie I grew up with and I was excited to see a little reference to it.
