No, for real, though—this is a thing. Not sure about the science behind it, but it makes me feel fancy and powerful regardless. I highly recommend it.
There actually is legit science behind this. In fact, here’s an entire TED Talk about the science behind it, and the confidence-related chemicals that your brain produces JUST BY YOU STANDING LIKE THIS.

MYTHOLOGY MEME | [7/9] GREEK GODS & GODDESSES » HERA
Hera was the goddess of marriage and childbirth, and the queen of Olympus in Greek mythology. She was born the daughter of Rhea and Cronus, and when the Titanomachy was overthrown, would marry her brother, Zeus. Her children included Ares, Enyo, Eris Hebe, and Hephaestus. Hera was seen as a scornful goddess as her marriage with Zeus was one full of strife, and ironically, despite being the personification of familial harmony, Hera’s personal life was filled with jealousy and discord. However, those she favored were ultimately blessed with goodwill, and her role as the queen of Olympus was one that was ultimately unquestioned as she was the most supreme of women in the Greek pantheon.

"The costumes are really, really important.[…] My costumes were quite heavy fabrics, they were kind of flawed, there was a big patch on the knee which was darned and that gives your character sort of.. uhm.. it gives your costume a biography. And the kind of stiff, staged collars and cravat it’s a very useful tool, which can then be deconstucted I think.. uhm,… there’s a scene where the cravat came off as a necessary moment. And things like the pocket watch was quite an old beautiful piece of jewlery and I decided that it belonged to Thornton’s father who said that he was kind of wearing something of his father all the time. So, in that respect your costume becomes clothing rather than costume. So yeah, it’s really really important." - Richard Armitage [x]
On this day in history…
1 October 1910: Bonnie Parker is born.
Bonnie Parker was born in Rowena, Texas to Charles Parker and his wife, Emma Krause. At the age of sixteen, she met and married Roy Thornton after dropping out of high school. The marriage quickly deteriorated, as Roy was frequently absent and in trouble with the law. The couple never divorced, however, and Bonnie was wearing her wedding ring at the time of her death. While living with her mother in Dallas, Bonnie met Clyde Barrow in 1930. Bonnie and Clyde were instantly attracted to one another, and she quickly joined up with his group of outlaws. Their criminal gang traveled throughout the United States committing robberies of various kinds. Between 1931 and 1934 Bonnie and Clyde attained national notoriety, as their crimes escalated from robbery to murder. The gang preferred to rob small stores and gas stations, though they are more famous for their occasional bank robberies. Throughout these activities, the gang killed multiple police officers and civilians. Although Bonnie and Clyde were originally popular with the public, the murdering of innocent civilians (especially the brutal Grapevine murders) turned public opinion against them. Former Texas Ranger Frank Hamer was charged with tracking down Bonnie, Clyde, and their gang. The couple, and in particular Bonnie, began to view their death as imminent. Bonnie, who was always fond of expressing herself in writing, wrote poems such as “The Story of Suicide Sal” and “The Trail’s End,” which eluded to their inevitable demise. In 1934 on a country road in Louisiana, Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed and killed by Hamer and his men - who shot the couple over fifty times. Bonnie was later buried in Dallas, near her mother’s home.
