HAMMER GLADIATOR by B9TRIBECA
Eleni's Quest (Peplum Muscle), part 1'Oh mighty Hera, queen of heaven, please hear me. I travelled three days to visit your temple. I came all the way from Armenoi with our only goat. I will offer it to you, as you are the goddess of marriage. You are my only hope. Please hear my plea!'
Eleni took a deep breath, and wiped the tears from her eyes.
'A messenger from the army told me that Mikkos, my good husband, has been taken prisoner in the war against the Persians. I am desperate, powerful Hera! Please, give me strength in these times of sorrow! I am just an ordinary, weak woman and I don’t know what to do without my man. I can’t face the world without him. Please give me strength!' Eleni broke and fell to the floor, sobbing.
When she left the sanctuary, she still had tears in her eyes. A woman approached her. She was tall, voluptuous and beautiful. It was hard to estimate her age.
'Are you feeling better, daughter?' the woman asked.
'Not really… I hope Hera has heard me.'
The woman smiled at her. 'Don&
Eleni's Quest (Peplum Muscle), part 2A ray of sunlight struck Eleni and it felt like the goddess herself touched her. She sat up and dried her eyes. ‘No,’ she said. ‘I shouldn’t be crying like a little baby. The generous goddess has given me awesome powers and I am going to use them.’ She thought for a moment. ‘Until now, it was enough to use my physical strength. I have become so strong that no one could resist me. Maybe I should explore what else I can do with my strength?’
She lifted the bottom of her peplos and examined her giant thighs. ‘Until now, I mostly used my arm strength. I wonder what these pillars can do?’ She crouched down and her thighs grew even bigger. Eleni took a deep breath and launched herself into the air. She was surprised how high she could jump. Almost three times her own height, she guessed. ‘Wow, my legs are really strong! If I can jump this high, I suppose I am also able to run very fast.’
She tucked up her peplos and ran away.
Eleni's Quest (Peplum Muscle), part 3It didn’t take Eleni long to reach the Anatolian coast. When she reached the shore she started running at high speed. Only after a while she realized she had no idea where she should go. She stopped, and jumped into the air. She was delighted to find that she could jump very high now, about ten times her own height. When she landed, she sank into the ground up to her knees. She jumped again and looked into another direction. Far in the distance she spotted a group of houses.
She ran towards them and arrived only moments later. A man shook his head in disbelief as the muscular woman seemed to appear out of nothing. ‘Tell me where I can the nearest Persian army camp!’ she demanded.
‘You are Greek, aren’t you? I won’t tell you anything!’
‘Ah, you don’t seem to understand,’ she said with a smile. ‘Is this yours?’ She pointed to simple house with clay walls behind him. The man nodded. While she kept smiling at him, she
The Ballad of Pal ViradGather ‘round, everyone, young and old,
Don’t you look sad!
For have you been told,
The Ballad of Pal Virad?
A brave lass, wise and true,
There’s never been anyone stronger,
Her tunic a brilliant green hue,
When she arrives we’ll be slaves no longer!
As a young faed selv,
She was a princess of the forest,
To meet her you had to delve,
Deep and be modest.
The invaders stole deep,
And pierced even her sanctuary,
Looking for slaves to reap,
But she made even them wary.
It was a fierce battle,
The invaders and Pal Virad clashed,
It made the mountains rattle,
And the forests fell slashed.
Pal Virad could topple towers with her punches,
The invaders had to cheat,
They took innocents into their clutches,
And the lady had to admit defeat.
When the princess became a slave,
She vowed to end their tyranny,
No matter what she stood brave,
And refused to be cowardly.
They made her a spectacle,
A fighter for their amusement,
Chained to a pedestal,
She leveled her accusement.

Thanks for another great month here at FemaleMuscle. We always welcome ideas or suggestions from members to keep FemaleMuscle the best female muscle artist collective anywhere!
peplum | ˈpepləm |
noun

a short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, or blouse to create a hanging frill or flounce.

• (in ancient Greece) a woman's loose outer tunic or shawl. [via Latin from Greek peplos.]

...and because the women (and men!) in the Italian "sword and sandal" movies of the late 1950s - and 60s wore "loose outer tunics", these movies are sometimes known as "Peplum" movies.

The trend started with bodybuilder Steve Reeves starring in Hercules (1958), a movie so successful and popular it ignited a genre of gladiator movies, Greek myth retellings (taking very great liberties with the source material!) and historical epics set during Ancient Roman times. The best explanation and introduction to Peplum films I can recommend is this (rather lengthy but informative) essay at the "PEPLUM TV" blog. But in short, if you've seen a low-budget film with the names "Hercules", "Son of Hercules", "Colossus", etc. in the title, in a setting that looks like ancient Greece or Rome; featuring a muscle-man dressed in short tunic and sandals who before the movie is over will be seen fighting in an arena, facing a death trap, and romancing the beautiful but wicked queen, you've seen a peplum movie.

Now... take that movie, and substitute a muscle-woman for the muscle-man, and you've got this month's theme, "Peplum Muscle".

Probably the most familiar exemplar of the peplum sensibility in female muscle art is Pumpmonger's character Red the Paladin, but there are thousands of other examples like the pieces below to give you an idea what we're looking for.

Hey gang,

Does anyone know what happened to Guitarist03's account? It says he's been suspended but there's no information why. Was hoping someone in the community would be in touch with him to find out what's going on.
