I want to have Edna’s confidence
The thing is, she needs to be confident. She needs to be THE BEST so that the tragedies of her past don’t happen again. Why “No capes!”? She made those outfits. Her outfits are the reason that competent heroes died. She needs to be better than she was, better than she is, so she sets those standards for herself.
excuse u who gave you permission to give me emotions over edna mode
I never look back, darling, it distracts from the now.
The best part is that Edna Mode was based on real-life designer Edith Head (according to the director of The Incredibles), who ROCKED the world of costume design in a mid-1900’s Hollywood industry that was still pretty much a boy’s club. Edith Head holds 8 Academy Awards (a record for the category), and once said that “If it’s a Paramount film, I probably designed it.” I’d like to think that a lot of Edna’s sass and confidence is taken directly from this awesome lady’s actual personality.
