Because if you can be Tina Belcher, be Tina Belcher. Am I right or am I right? The eldest daughter of Bob & Linda Belcher has countless articles stating why she is a fan favorite ranging from her budding feminism to dating lessons. For those who do do not watch Bob's Burgers (2011 - ):
Tina Belcher is a pre-teen who is boy / butt obsessed, loves to write erotic friend fiction (fantasy fiction about her friends), loves horses and zombies ( more a complicated relationship with zombies), her catch phrase is "Uhhhhhhh" which sometimes includes falling over in a moan, but then at other time she exudes confidence and can even dance in public. Originally this character was suppose to be a teenage boy (those she is still voiced by a man, Danny Mintz), but we are so glad they changed her to Tina. Alone she is wonderful, but her interactions her eccentric family warms our heart. Louise her bunny-ear wearing mischievous sister, Gene her uber enthusiastic brother obsessed with fart-sounds (he records these sounds onto his electronic keyboard). Her mother Linda who loves musical theater, collects porcelain babies, and always have a joyful personality. Then there is her dad Bob, the "beef artist" whose restaurant always struggles, especially when it comes to his rivalry with the Italian restaurant across the street, but even when he doesn't understand why his family does the things they do - he still loves and supports them. That's what I admire about the Belcher family: the acceptance of who they are and love.
For my Fall inspired Tina look - I went with a long sleeve tee in light blue and layered over a blue dress (a lace dress, I turned inside out) instead of buying a new skirt (plus layers are always key for fall). I think this simple switch shows a) how one can cosplay with simple basics b) how to work with what you already have in your closet. I also paired the knee-socks with gray tights (because it is already tight season in Wisconsin - no bare legs for this woman).
I, for one, am happy to have you back for a fifth season (premiered yesterday). Now time to write some erotic friend fiction and dance with zombies.
