Thanks to having read my post on Sheena, Queen of the Jungle from a few weeks back, two of my favorite women on the planet, specifically naughty pixie Rex and the toothsome Sukihoshi, are dressing up as the comics' greatest jungle badass for Halloween. Sukihoshi's rocking her oufit on Halloween proper so I'll post her in all her leopardy glory when I get some pics from her, but Rex already got her animal print on last weekend at a pre-Halloween shindig.

The mighty Rex represents as Sheena.

Those of you who've never had the singular pleasure of meeting Rex won't get how totally appropriate it is for her tiny self to represent for the Jungle Queen. She's a fierce and feisty Canadian menace to society who's every bit as tough as the chracter she's impersonating, and I nearly shat myself with happiness when she clued me in on her plans.

Here she is with her roomate, "Hutch" — better known to some of you out there as Tower 2, the last of the barbecue joint's bartenders — as She-Pirate. Love the tattoo body stocking!

Here's a scale comparison shot: Hutch looms over Rex at a good six-foot-two, about a foot taller than the Jungle Canuck. Months ago I tried to convince them to go as Asterix and Obelix, two of Belgium's world-renowned classic comics characters, second only to Tintin in international recognition, but they had no idea what the hell I was talking about so they passed on that suggestion.

Asterix and Obelix (and don't forget Dogmatix!): oh, what could have been...

With a few weeks time to do the costumes up right, it would have been a natural! Oh, well...

And do not ask me what the fuck she's doing with those plastic vampire teefus.

Yay! I lurve Halloween!

Those vampire teefus came in handy later when it was time to disperse a pack of swarthy poachers.
