Edna Mode is my spirit animal

You know about that character in the Incredibles who hates capes?! You know how she designs costumes for superheroes including the Incredible family?! Yup, thats the one I’m talking about. She is hyper, eccentric and just plain genius. She looks insane when she is passionate and probably best friend goals. From what I remember, Edna was a self made woman who is succesful in life and was a symbol of everything a woman is capable of : greatness. She is a feminist’s pride and an exeptional example of an empowered woman : the woman of tomorrow. I relate to her at most points in my life but her greatness cannot be touched and is unparalleled . From her “NO CAPES” fetish to her sophisticated command over life, everything about her is hilarious and amusing. She is like a tiny posh doll who transforms into a hyperactive chihuahua when talking of her interests.

Her “I  never look back darling, it distracts me from the past” attitude and swagger is unbelievably motivational and impressive 

I call her my spirit animal because if you know me well enough you’d know that we share the same blood. We share a crazy craving for making a difference except she actually made one, in her life and in the lives of others.

Edna is easily one of my favourite disney characters because she was a woman who saved heroes, and thats the kind of irony I aspire to have in my life.
