Sex Girls Patrol: The Deadly Sex Look
There’s an awesome Kickstarter campaign on to help bring Canada’s first super heroine, Nelvana of the Northern Lights back into print for the first time since the 1940s! This is a very cool part of comics and Canadian history, please consider donating some funds. There’s also awesome perks, including copies of the finished books (softcover and hardcover available) and prints from comic artists such as: Ramón Pérez, Francis Manapul, Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes, J. Bone, Adam Gorham, Kate Leth and any more!
Earlier this week I told you about a new book about the forgotten female superheroes of the Golden Age. But those were American heroes. And before many of those arrived there was a female superhero in Canada - Nelvana of the Northern Lights.
I only just learned of Nelvana earlier this…
Friend of NGB, Dani Vulnavi (the creator behind Suckers and Super Suckers apparel) made this super cute Captain Marvel inspired dress for a pint-sized Carol Danvers fan! Dani also is responsible for Delicia Pastiche and Loretta Jean’s Glitter Batman & Robin burlesque costumes, along with some other special pieces in our costume trunks. :)
Tallulah as Princess Captain Marvel.
Dress by Suckers.
A few highlights from some of my friends’ acts at the MBF. Gala Delicious and Dolly Dagger did a sweet shimmy to Paint it Black. Bella Fox and Loretta Jean of Nerd Girl Burlesque did an awesome Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus act, complete with transformation scene. Photos once again by Bruno VZ.
Thanks linking these, Florence! ♥ It’s awesome to see some photos of our performance. :)
I’m so happy that we got the chance to perform with these ladies at the Michigan Burlesque Festival - it was a great time!
FYI, Bella Fox has decided that her new stage name is Helen of Tronna (as in Trawna), so she’s being billed that way as of now.
Florence picked Helen, Bianca Boom Boom and I up in Windsor, Ontario. We had an adventure in Sandwich Town (actual place) and then we drove across the border.
During the festival, Helen and I had the good fortune of sharing a dressing room with Gala Delicious and Dolly Dagger, who are complete sweethearts. I loved their Paint it Black number (pictured above.)
Florence’s “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” number is ridiculous and awesome. I love how depraved her sense of humour is.
What a great experience! Can’t see to see these lovely people again. -Loretta Jean (aka Sailor Uranus)
Have we mentioned how much we love Florence of Alabia? She’s kind of a genius, an amazing artist, a fantastic performer and an all around fantastic human being.
So, I’ve been keeping a tour diary since March, chronicling my burlesque adventures. I’ve got about 150 pages of diary comics sketched, and I inked (and colored) enough of them to put out a mini comic. I’ll have them for sale at the merch table while on tour (along with my dirty mermaid comics) and I’ll also run some of them on tumblr when fall tour starts up in October! This cover might be misleading about how many fart jokes are in this “series.” I’m calling the first mini #0 because the rest will be slightly more organized by subject and this one is an appetizer course with lots of different stuff in it.

Arc Reactor: an Iron Man drink
In celebration of the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’re creating new drinks for our Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. glasses. Our second drink is the Arc Reactor: a smooth, clean shot of energy that can get you wasted.
- 1.5 oz. blue raspberry Sour Puss
- 0.5 oz. rum
- 0.5 oz. vodka
- dash of lemon juice
- 1 oz. Red Bull
- Fill with club soda
Shake liqours and lemon juice over ice and strain into a sugar-rimmed tumbler. Add Red Bull and club soda, and stir. Toast to clean energy, and remember: don’t drink and fly.
Our Iron Man tumbler can be found here.

(Picture makes this drink more green and less blue than it actually is.)
This sounds delicious, I want one right now.
