Firstly, I want to thank the members of this community. I joined to get inspiration for Halloween, and I got plenty!! Me and a coworker are going to be Tank Girl (her) and Jet Girl (me) this year. I wanted to share one of my lovely finds with all of you. You must know that as I build this costume I'm going more for "Jet Girl would totally wear this!" as opposed to total accuracy. I got this temporary tattoo out of a vending machine and thought it would be absolutely perfect for my Jet Girl costume. If she ever got a tattoo, I would assume it would look something like this:

I think what makes it even more perfect is that it looks as if Mr. Hewlett drew it himself! XD

Shameless Promotion [18 Sep 2008|09:56pm]

If this is forbidden here feel free to delete this but I wanted to advertise I have some Tanky shirts (abd stickers) for sale on Ebay. I used to sell them there pretty regularly so I'm guessing at least one of the members here have one. Anyways check out my auctions at:

Here's what they look like:

I thought that you might find this amusing... 48+ hours without sleep does this to me. I fucked up the end and got lazy in the editing, but it was fun to make.

so. as some of you might know. tank girl (lori petty) was at dragon con. and dragon con was this weekend here in atlanta.

wellll. i couldnt go. cause i had to work, and i had a friends birthday party to go to.

well. at work. i was helping this husband and wife find a 'goth' like outfit for her to wear to dragon con. and i was telling them about how i wanted so i could meet lori petty.

anyway we all became friends and stuff. and i gave them my number and such.

well. today. i get a call from the wife. telling me.

"um, we met lori petty for you and got you her autograph and stuff."

*insert squealing, screaming, and yes, crying*

i told them i worked today and they could just come in and bring it to me. so they did. and i hugged them and thanked them like crazy. and just. yeah.

i'm so fucking happy. its like. the coolest thing to happen this year. and lori petty even picked out the pic for her to sign for me, and put it in the protective sleeve herself, and yeah. i'm lame. but omg.

it made me so happy. i cry when i talk about it. just because. it was because of her, and that movie, and the comic, that i am who i am today. so its just so awesome.

Hairdo Help? [05 Aug 2007|05:35pm]

I want to get my hair cut like Tank Girl has hers done, but I need a reference picture that isn't a comic/drawing for my stylist, because she's anti-comics for some reason.

I don't know either, but she really hates it when I show up with a comic reference, and it's harder for her to determine how it would look on me or something. I don't know; any help is appreciated.

But, it has to be a clear picture! (In the movie, there's hardly a good shot of her hair, so the movie probably won't help.) I've looked everywhere; help!

Thank you! <3

TG icons [03 Jun 2007|07:54pm]

So I've got this new graphix community, http://community.livejournal.com/desolation_rose. Sorry to be a shameless self-advertizer, but it's new, in need of promotion and I didn't see a rule against it. Plus, there will be Tank icons. I promise.

I just heard that Lori Petty is going to be at Dragon Con this year. I'm so stoked. I will definitely be bringing my movie for her to sign, that or dig up a good photo. I'll hang her pic next to my signed Carrie Fisher photo.

Return of TANK GIRL. [20 Mar 2007|01:09am]

I was reading the latest issue of Wizard magazine, and they highlighted a bunch of stuff about upcoming independent releases.


"Alan Martin, the series co-creator and writer of the Tank Girl series, is bringing her back. Hewlett is apparently fantastically wealthy from Gorillaz, so, Australian Ashley Wood has been tapped. The coolest thing about the new series, thus far, besides the use of Wood, is Martin’s comments on her new look:

What was alternative, upsetting, anarchic, and just plain odd-ball back then has since become common place. Mainstream media smothers us daily with punky chic, and modern day babies can be seen sporting spikey hairdos and Travis Bickle T-shirts. The uniform of the cultural revolutionary has been sold to The Man.

So how to rebel? How give the finger to the fashion fascists? Normal is the only way ahead. Dress like a high school teacher from the mid-eighties, or pick clothes from your boring aunty’s wardrobe. The only way left to rebel is to dress like you’re not rebelling.

I’m not sure I’m completely convinced that this is the case, but there does seem to be a fairly clear deliniation between a world with and without Suicide Girls, and one could argue it was roughly the time Lori Petty shaved her head into a mohawk. I any case, I’m keen to see how this pans out."
