a fabulous coat & the ruin of two families  

Yesterday over on Facebook I posted a link to an utterly fabulous 1940s bomber-style womens’ jacket. Things almost immediately got out of control as my dear friend Leah Moore loved it as much as I did:

Leah: That is just gorgeous. I would marry that jacket.

Catie: I would show up at the altar and object because I saw it first and loved it more.

Leah: Oh damn!

Leah: With high waist trousers and a killer haircut….oh man…

Catie: actually i would show up at the altar and you would look so fabulous in your coat and your high waist trousers and your killer undercut that i’d run away with you instead

Leah: I’d fly off with you in my plane…and we’d land on hawaii or somesuch.

Catie: we would live the roguish life of passionate adventurers, travelling the world and laughing carelessly at passers-by

Leah: YES!!! I’m up for all of that. Anytime. ❤💗❤💗Wow. What a jacket…

Catie: look at the trouble it’s already causing! :)

Leah: Two broken homes and financial abandon, not to mention the fact i don’t know how to fly a plane! 😄😄

Catie: I understand *flying* a plane isn’t that hard. *Landing* a plane… :)

Leah: Is it wrong that i want to draw fanart of us?

AND THEN SHE DID!!!!

I have never in my life wanted so much to do a web comic. It’d be like Delilah Dirk & the Turkish Lieutenant, except two bonkers ladies fighting crime & injustice in a modern world that was a massive mash-up of all the stylistically visually amazing bits of the past 140 years. It’d be brilliant modern social commentary. With great clothes. *flails*!

The part that I'm especially in awe of is that they look like us!

You can totally have a walk-on. <3 :)
