Hiya, Super Friends! Tomorrow marks the release of the 2014 Grimm Fairy Tale Swimsuit Special, featuring this gorgeous cover…Oh happiest of happy summer days!!
When it occurred to me that I was even more stoked for that than I was for this lil beauty:
(which also hits stores tomorrow btw), I realized I might just have a problem. Luckily it’s a problem I am more than ok with, so let’s celebrate the summery summerness of summer with some of my favorite Swimsuit Specials, shall we?
(Nobody does swimsuits like Aspen Matthews. *dreamy sigh* If Fathom doesn’t spark Super Summer Spirit in you, then you might as well hole up and wait for winter…I hear it’s coming, y’know. ;))
Aspen may be the swimsuit queen, but the Grimm girls can definitely hold their own in that department. Here’s but(t) a very few of their “special” moments:
(That cover helped inspire my Comic Con costume this year, btw. :))
(And this cover helped inspire this shot…at least in my own mind when I was shooting it. ;))
See why I’m so excited to get my hands on the newest GFT gorgeousness? The Grimm gals never disappoint!! (And, yes, I realize what a goober I am for saying that but, like I said, there ain’t no shame in my swimsuit special game. ;))
Here are a couple more bathing beauties who definitely deserve to be mentioned:
(I sooooo hope that rumored Avengelyne movie adaptation with Gina Garano becomes a real thing. If she can’t play Wondie, Avie’s not a bad condolence prize. ;))
(Way to make us pale gals proud, LD!! ;))
Finally, even though she never technically had her own swimsuit special (that I’m aware of, at least…if I’m wrong on that PLEASE do lmk!! ;)), no SK Swimsuit Edition would be complete without featuring my Lovely Lara. <3 <3 <3
(Of course, these shots are what inspired me to turn my Lara costume into a makeshift bikini during my Tomb Raider reboot shoot…Gotta rep the classics!! :))
But wait, there’s more!!
It would be highly sexist of me to leave without posting a lil’ something for the ladies, too. (Or whoever, actually. I’m not one to judge. :)) To everyone who’s been longing to see Frank Castle in his skivvies or Steve Rogers casually reading the Constitution on the beach, you are welcome.
(Doc Samson basically always looks like that, but this shot wasjust too glorious not to be included!! ;))
(Good on Mr. Stark for not giving into that whole silly waxing trend… ;))
And last but oh-so-definitely-not-least, I present you with a real-life swimsuit special: Robin (aka Burt Ward) showing off the goods. He’s way more covered up than I’d like him to be here, but I had to correct a grievous error I made on Instagram yesterday and make sure Mr. Ward had a lil’ POW! in the proper places…
Now that’s a bit more like it…
Pow indeed, Boy Wonder. Pow. In. Deed. xoxoxoxox
