Today Marvel put out the announcement that as of October there will be a new THOR replacing the one we've known for the past fifty two years. This included some amazing images to what this new Thor will look like. A bad ass woman in armor. Sure, she's got a little bit of chest molding going on but it's not overt and the outfit is most definitely not revealing nor is it particularly problematic. It's basically a female version of male Thor clothing.
I read this article during my lunch break. I was so happy I wanted to cry. I was inspired. I realized that this was the kind of thing that meant that if people will get excited about Thor who happens to be a woman. Then the story I've been writing really might have a place out there. I've been putting off working on revisions and instead working on a second book and other projects. Well, I'm excited.
This evening after I'd changed my wallpaper on my phone to this image I started looking at the outfit she was wearing. Out of nowhere I found myself thinking what material would work best to make a helm like that. How many months is it to Convolution? Two and a half? The new comic wont even be out yet. I wasn't planning a huge new costume this soon. I must be nuts.
Speaking of Convolution, they said I'd be there and that I'm doing something. Whatever will it be? Mysteries!
