My husband and I watch the new-ish series called Nikita on the CW. Based on the excellent 1990 Luc Besson film La femme Nikita, it’s an assassin-turned-rogue-who-is-out-to-take-the-big-bad-covert-ops-organization-down kind of story. It is actually well written and acted, and the actors are pretty believable, particularly Melinda Clarke, who plays the chilling and sadistic Amanda. However, the title character, while I do like the writing and back-story, is a little harder to believe. Maggie Q plays Nikita, and while she is a brilliant little actress and stunningly beautiful, she cannot weigh more than eighty pounds soaking wet. And she regularly takes down men that weigh 200-300 pounds, usually armed as well. Just. doesn’t. happen. In the first episode she assassinates a huge disreputable guy with her bare hands in public while wearing only a bikini. Probably every heterosexual male’s hottest fantasy, but still. Really?
Anyway, though it stretches the imagination a little too much, it’s an entertaining show and I like watching the fight scenes. All this came to mind when I received two particular items this week. One is this amazing new hair from Likeli. Seriously. This hair is amazing, there is just no other word for it. I would love hair like this, although it would get in the way of punching people. The other is this teeny tiny dress from Zeljkogirl Solo which I believe would be very hard to kick butt in, but Nikita does it regularly, and sometimes in high heels. And when the hand-fighting goes south, there is always this no-nonsense (and free, I might add) pistol from AGrid Aftermath.
Topaz Adjust 5 came out this week and I have been playing around with the filter options….what do you think?
