HRH the Pirate Queen


Remember earlier this year when I wrote how HRH had ditched me in order to be a Pirate Queen over at another blog? Well, she's back now from her adventures at O'Leary Miniatures -- and she didn't come home alone! She brought along Suzie Swagger, the first mate on her pirate ship. Suzie is a high-spirited gal with a penchant for bikini bottoms and mayhem. She and HRH get along famously.

Both these wee miniatures are only 32 mm (1 inch) high. Isn't that incredible? Thank you, Anne, for painting them so beautifully and sending them to Edmonton. I was only expecting HRH in the mail but Anne included Suzie Swagger as a surprise for My Rare One. And Anne correctly divined her exact taste in pirate babes! It's uncanny but then again, Anne is Irish.

Incredible that they're so small! Makes my head hurt just to think of painting something that tiny.

(What is it about boots that make bikinis look ... smaller?)

Glad HRH is back.

WOW! I think that's a job for young eyes and steady hands. Both of which I have neither!

That's a sexy little pirate! But even though I'm not going to ever complain about seeing a lady pirate dressed like that, I alway have a thought in the back of my mind about how they were able to dress like that and spend months at sea on a ship filled with grizzled horny me with swords. Metal swords, I mean.

OK I kid you not, Suzie Swagger looks JUST LIKE the woman who led a training I was in today. No cat, sadly.

Suzie's going to get an awful lot of splinters climbing up to the crows nest unless she puts on a pair of pants.

Love the miniatures! Makes my fingers and eyes hurt just thinking about painting that small. I'm pretty sure I've got the same outfit that Suzie Swagger is wearing. :-D We don't wear it the same way :-(
