Power Suit Girls

Here's another sketch I've been kicking around for over a year now...
Cubake and Lady Cobra finally get power suits, although Cubake is wearing one of Boffette's helmets. She has to masquerade as Boffette, while Lady Cobra can only wear a lower section. 
Lady Cobra has boots, briefs and leggings with a custom made helmet that attaches at the waist.

This is from an older scenario where Boffette has disappeared, and Cubake and Lady Cobra go off to find and rescue her. It's kind of based on the old Iron Man comics where in a crisis, Tony Stark had trusted a confidant with a copy of his suit, and the stand-in then has to save Tony.

Usually instead, the stand-in gets his butt kicked, but buys Tony time to get out the trap, and get his suit on to save the day.

Beyond that, I really don't know what it means. Hopefully, these two will do better than the usual Marvel comic secondary character. Here's to a crazy hot summer!

Gravity Falls - Pyronica

Hey Damsel fan(s), we finally have a new entry for August:

(copyright Disney)

I don't know her name, but she sure stands out at Bill Cipher's party.
I think this in "Weirdmageddon Part 1".
She wins playing "Spin the Person", and snags a fellow demon guy with her tongue.
Then she gulps him down, but it doesn't bother her figure at all.

I'm just getting into this show, now that it's over.
It is amazing with some of the more mature themes the creators slip in to this show.
Like other femme fatales, she seems to be in there for shock value.

The show seems to pay tribute to some of my old favorites: Twin Peaks, X-Files, Stargate, and other classic science fiction, horror and mystery films, TV shows and print. Plus I guess there are some video game references sprinkled in there.

Anyway, I've got my eye on her. D'oh!

UPDATE: Just found out, her name is Pyronica.

Seagull Cinderella Controversy - Donna Dodson

 Well, this could lead to an endless stream of bad jokes...

I discovered Donna Dodson's work two years ago. Personally, I still find her work enchanting. Because this sculpture is not the size of a toy, "Seagull Cinderella" is drawing a lot of fire. My devilish side wants to ask - - no, never mind.

Some say that bad press is better than no press at all. "Edit" the statue, or have it removed completely? Too bad this princess couldn't come to life, and give her critics a big hug.
