Wednesday Workout Cosplay: Powerpuff Girls

One of the Cartoons that came about later in my "childhood" (see: adolescence) was an IMMEDIATE hook! The show feature three little bad-a$$es who saved the day, known as:

I loved this show! It was well executed, and at a time when a lot of cartoons were employing CGI, Powerpuff Girls (PPG) had a nice traditional hand drawn quality. Like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friend, and MLP: Friendship is Magic would later employ PPG had many GREAT background characters and pop culture references sprinkled throughout!

My favorite was Buttercup. Maybe it's cause I KNOW she's Slytherin and house-pride and all that (Bubbles is clearly Hufflepuff, and Blossom is such a Gryffindor...and I mean these with no malice), but I like her take no crap attitude! I do appreciate all three girls and with that, today's workout cosplay!

I'll admit this cosplay is the same outfit in differing colors. But my two reason for this are simple: a). their dresses are the same but in different colors, and, b). it's been that kind of a week! But like the Hogwarts houses, or, Camp Half-Blood Cabins, fans tend to have a favorite between the three. So...options!

Powerpuff Girls

1-3). Blue, Pink, Green- Protect ya mitts with these boxing gloves of awesomeness! Punch out the Gangreen Gang, or, take out the creepy and EVIL HIM with all your super strength!
4). Red Bow- If you're a blossom fan, then you know that the bow is required accessorizing! This one is nice and subtle, but, definitely there!
5). Climacool Shirt- seriously this shirt is awesome! I love the little metal beads that actually conduct heat away from you! So awesome (also, they come in a plethora of colors)!
6). Shorts- These shorts come in so many colors! And I like their length! Not too short, but not too long either!

I have three recommended viewings for this post:
1). The Powerpuff Girls- the cartoon is currently on Netflix! If you haven't seen it, check it out! And if you've seen it, go back and enjoy it!
2). Girlfight- is a movie about a girl who starts boxing to help get rid of a chip on her shoulder, and discover who she is through discipline in athletics!
3). Boxing Workout- this written one is really awesome! And boxing employs A LOT of the muscles we tend to focus on such as core, and arms!

Last off, is our playlist! Did you know there was a Powerpuff Girls "soundtrack"? It's pretty awesome! Devo and Shonen Knife are on it, so I featured those two (and of course the closing theme by the amazing Scottish-synth-pop band: Bis!).

  5. My favorite was also Buttercup, but that's cause I was a bit of a tomboy growing up. But I love these outfits! The addition of the bow for blossom is pretty adorable!
