girl as a boy

Is it possible, do you think, to turn Little Red Riding Hood into a boy - without looking like he's riding the gender bending wave? It feel ever so slightly done and dusty these days ... or am I being pessimistic? 
And does he have to wear an actual hood? How important are the details? Harry Potter's green eyes turned blue - and he survived;
maybe a little artistic license gets me off the hook too ...


  1. Artistic license always gets us off the hook. I say "go for it!" Wonderful, stylish red-boy-hood !

  2. I know, whoever came up with artistic license should get an award lol
