A die-hard "Iron Man" and "Avengers" fan who grew up on "Batman: The Animated Series," Tumblr blogger Robin of Robinade decided to combine her love of style and superheroes by creating "Avengers" fashion sketches. But she wasn't just designing "Thor"-inspired dresses -- she was making a statement about women in the comic book industry.
"I am a huge fan of superheroes in both movie and comic book form, but I am not the target demographic," Robin said in an email to the Huffington Post. "Most of the merchandise for these characters are for men -- and at 5' 2" I'm never going to be able to fit into a man's hoodie. Comic books and action movies are generally made by men, for men; that fact that women like them too is apparently incidental."
Creating superhero-inspired "Avengers" dresses is Robin's way of celebrating both femininity and comic books, and saying, "Hey, girls like this stuff too!"
