Cranky Smurfette

The blue of these tights is so brilliant that I always feel a bit like a Smurf when I wear them. Since I'm in all blue, and I look pretty cranky in these pics, I am the Cranky Smurfette.

Ever think about the Smurfs? That's Barber Smurf, and Clumsy Smurf and Cobbler Smurf, and the list goes on. Everyone/smurf has an identity based around something they do, or a personality trait. Then there's the lone female Smurf - Smurfette, whose name and identity is based solely on her sex. I mean, even Papa smurf, is a father figure, a leader. I know this might sound crazy, and I don't mean to present some sort of feminist rant. However, even as a little girl, I didn't understand why Smurfette's sole defining feature is the fact she's a female? Nothing expected of her? No role to fulfill? She just had to be the girl. Not cool. Ergo, if I were a Smurf I'd be Cranky Smurfette.

Thanks for smurfing by!

    Sidenote: Smurfette doesn't have a definitive role besides being a girl because Gorgamel created her as a way to get rid of Papa Smurf and the rest of the Smurfs but it backfired.

  12. Ah! The sleeves of the dress..perfecto and paired very well with the bright blue tights!
