Bicentennial Badass II by Red-Ribbon-Cosplay Bicentennial Badass II by Red-Ribbon-Cosplay
Part of a shoot I did for the Futurecon 2012 Calendar entitled Women of Valour, created to support Epilepsy Toronto. I was Ms. July, and since July 2012 was the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, this was the theme I was given. Obviously, I'm Canadian.

This was the photo that was used in the calendar, and I'm only posting it now that the calendar is no longer in print.

Power Girl costume made by me.
The male model is the wonderful Naked Dave, who I am still sorry for injuring during this shoot.

As someone who laughs at American smugness and xenophobia, I approve this message!

The War of 1812, a war that should have never happened.

Yes, the US did have grievances with Great Britain about shanghaiing of US merchant sailors, and the invasion of Washington, Ft. McHenry's bombardment and Jackson's repelling of Packenham at New Orleans, and the US invasions of Canada all could have been prevented had diplomats between the US and England been able to resolve issues peacefully. England later recognized it needed the US as a trading partner, and the US's "Second War of Independence" stirred American patriotism. It had an added benefit in that Canada also emerged from the war with a heightened sense of national feeling and solidarity, as it celebrated its defeat of multiple invasions by US troops.

Outside of the fumbling "Fenian" invasions by Irish-Americans and immigrants after the American Civil War, the US and Canada have had a remarkably peaceful sharing of the North American continent.
