i complain about season 3 a lot (with good reason; also, i’m right) but i am literally so completely, profoundly grateful for allura’s pink armor. like, voltron has messed up a lot of things but they absolutely got this armor right. they took allura’s armor which, in the original series, was pink to represent her status as the One Female In The Group, and turned it into something that honors the dead. the voltron writers have altered our perception of the color pink, and therefore our associations with it. pink is not a ‘girly color.’ pink is not weak, or delicate, or fragile. pink is power, and remembrance, and a symbol for everyone because everyone has lost someone.
allura is strong, and beautiful, and feminine, and pink.
