The other day I came across an image of a 'edgy'woman. I am drawn to images of strong women and have used them in many collages. So I decided to do do an 'edgy' woman collage. While searching for images, I discovered that there is a genre tagged 'tough girls'. I found tough girl looks on Pinterest, tough girl anime, lists of tough girls in film. What a collection I've gathered!
Now some of my choices might not fit someone else's definition of Tough Girl, but it works for me. Looking forward to the next Tough Girl collage.
I think I didn't really get to express my own 'tough' energy, even though I grew up an urban 'Philly Girl'.

Speaking of Tough Girls. I just watched a great 6 episode Brtish TV series called Hit & Miss. It's a beautifully realized show about living through life when times are tough, of gathering and creating family.
Chloe Sevigny] is a tough girl indeed. Actually, though, she is a pre-op transexual who is also a hit-man, who learns that she has a son with her former lover, who has recently died. What a set-up! But it's just great. Check it out. I found it on Netflix streaming but it's out there on the web.
There is also a terrific music in this series, which made a great background for my Tough Girls collage. You can find it on Spotify as the Hit & Miss soundtrack.
