I just received the most amazing gift ever.
Batgirl dances the Watusi atop a Gotham gargoyle in this porcelain bust, as part of the Women of the DC Universe series.
Watusi (or Adam West’s infamous Batusi) aside, I don’t think I have to tell you how perfectly this captures Batgirl and makes me extremely happy. Many previous Batgirl sculptures are exaggerated or comical, but this one’s just right. Also, since Stephanie is the newest Batgirl (grr), we probably won’t see too much of Barbara for a while.
The other busts from the Women of the DC Universe Series 3 include Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Raven. All of them look phenomenal, thanks to designer Amanda Conner and sculptor Jack Mathis. If there’s one you like, get it soon–there’s a limited number (5,000 I think), and once they’re gone they won’t come back.
