Alright nerds, hold on to your everything because I have a whole lotta GoT/other nerd crossover star photos to throw at you! We’re being blessed with so much Gwendoline Christie right now thanks to the upcoming Star Wars movie, we’ve got a little Emilia Clarke our mother of dragons/John Connor, and hey, why not our favourite Wildling/aspiring secretary maid Rose Leslie (Yes Downton Abbey is a nerd show! I watched every episode even though it got REALLY bad, it sparks devotion! It features costumes and high drama and controversial character deaths. NERRRRRD!)

All of these pictures are beautiful, but lets be real and admit it: THE GWENDOLINE PICTURES ARE BLOWING OUR MINDS! AREN’T THEY? THEY ARE! God, she’s perfect.

MOTHER OF DRAGONS! Vincent Peters lends his sumptuous creamy black and white style to these stunning retro photos of Emilia Clarke for the November issue of Esquire. Quick aside: what even is this disaster of a cover layout? Layouts are important, people! Messy junk like this pulls away from great pictures. It’s very frustrating! That aside, this is an amazing spread. Emilia has improved so much as a model over the years, and she bewitches the camera in every shot.

I’m still giggle-watching Downton Abbey, which I have renamed, “My how things change as the years pass”, and it’s ridiculous and boring, but still so beautiful and fun. It basically consists of every character marvelling at how different things are now, in 1925 than they were then, in years before 1925. It’s so heavy handed, but it looks great!

My crush on Bates remains strong and powerful, he’s such a good husband/man/possible-murderer????? The cast has great camaraderie and yes, the wigs & ageing make-up are terrible, but the costumes, my loves, the COSTUMES! Plus I love final seasons of shows because ANYONE CAN DIE! And this show is already ruthless about killing off main characters with incompetent doctors/driving skills.

And then there’s this fierce diva pictured below whose weapons are her willow-slim arms and impossible eyebrows which she uses to test drive men’s sexual performance before deciding they’re not worthy of her, or to murder them with her SEXUALITY. God, she’s perfect! When not man-slaying she hangs out in her awesome room, just chatting with her bff/professional dress buttoner Anna while patting her bobbed wig, applying scents to her delicate inner wrists that trick men into thinking she won’t cut them if they cross her, trying on endless earbobs and lavaliers and long strings of pearls that I imagine she uses as a fuck lasso after dinner and cards and raising her sex-arch brows in response to everything everyone says. If you’re still with me in the final episodes of Downton watching, observe Mary every time Edith says anything, it’s hilarious! She rolls her eyes if Edith says hello. Every thing that poor woman says is scorned by her superhero eyebrow sister. I love it! I love them! I LOVE THIS SHOW!

But seriously, it’s not great. Worth it for the Dockery though. Worth it hard.

LesBeehive Throwback Thursday – Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman

This week’s Lesbeehive Throwback Thursday revisits Bo’s never-dying adoration of Lynda Carter’s depiction of Wonder Woman, along with fantastic retro images of the Queen of the Brunettes.

Whenever anyone asks me who was my first love, I always reply, “Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman.” Oh, there were other brunettes that stole my heart at an early age: Alyssa Milano; Shannen Doherty; Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins (I didn’t even know Julie was a blonde until I saw The Sound of Music when I was 12), but no one overwhelmed my senses like Wonder Woman. I was obsessed with her. Not the comic-her, though my obsession bled into the comics a bit, but it mostly stayed focused on the real life walking, talking Wonder Woman smiling at me all buxom and strong from my TV screen, eyes as pale as an icy sea, crimson lips parted in a mischievous smile. She became my idea of a perfect beauty, mixed with the mother I worshipped who also had dark hair and red lips.

I did everything I could to bring Wonder Woman into my life – I wore the underoos and effortlessly defeated my Superman and Batman clad brothers. I turned my Barbies into victims that Wonder Woman saved, or villains that she lassoed and triumphed over. When I was 4 I was Wonder Woman for Halloween. My Dad sewed a felt chest plate onto a red leotard, made me a headband with a star, and made me a lasso out of real rope. When my Wonder Woman mask broke, my Mom came to the rescue with her own Revlon Red lipstick, the same brand and shade Lynda sold in the commercials that I studied carefully, committing to memory the woman I wanted to become. She sold me beauty, but also strength, silly sweetness, and an affection for giant lensed glasses and buns. When I recall all the signs that I was destined to love women passionately and without abandon for the rest of my life, I count Wonder Woman as its inception. The little girl gazing at the woman that beautiful knew that there was someone deserving of a deep and abiding adoration.

Here are a few pictures of a god damned superhero! Ser Gwendoline! Look at this woman! Take your time! Because there’s a whole lot to drink in! She is strength and elegance and charm and her toes point so prettily that I just manifested a fainting couch to swoon onto.
