I see that this community has been snoozing for a bit! I first discovered Dame Darcy in a book about dollhouses (shaped like a dollhouse) in a set design class. I loved her dolls and thought to myself "Hm, Meat Cake sounds neat, I'll try to find it". I didn't know of any comic or book shops at the time that sold indy press stuff so I forgot about it for a few years and then one day at the local comic shop... "Heeey, this is Meat Cake. I remember reading about this. AND ALAN MOORE wrote for it? Wow! This must be awesome!" and what do you know? I was right. It was awesome! I bought her Greatest Hits CD and subsequently the Gasoline soundtrack (which is absolutely amazing, I missed seeing her perform live last year while touring for Death By Doll and am still kicking myself). I then bought Turn of the Century on VHS and fell even more in love with her work.
A local store was selling her t shirts for a while and I was thrilled to get the one with the girl warding off two ghosts with a cross in a graveyard. I get compliments on it all the time, even from the most staid citizens. I'd love to get another shirt, the designs are so lovely.

Take care, and may all your stockings be stripey.

welcome! i am really bummed this community is dead because i really like dame darcy. we need a group of hard core teenage fan girls to keep it going. sadly, i'm not a teen or a girl so i can't contribute in that arena.
