Rapunzel's Revenge and other Rapunzel Links

You all know the story of Rapunzel, I hope? Well, did you ever think about making a lasso out of all that hair? Or reins for a wild warthog? Then you might want to check out the graphic novel, Rapunzel's Revenge.

Rapunzel's Revenge is a whip-cracking lively and colourful graphic novel that takes the old passive princess in a tower and throws her away in favour of a fiery, moral and stubborn redhead who gets out of her tower and goes to save the world from evil Mother Gothel. It's one of my favourites out of the various books retelling Rapunzel.

If you like the Rapunzel fairytale, you may be interested in browsing the Rapunzel-related posters on this lens. They're mostly from Zazzle - Rapunzel herself, Mother Gothel, and her tower - but there's some on Amazon for the new Tangled movie already.

I also discovered a new song by Emilie Autumn when researching for that lens and this rather funny little short film

Bria's a semi-professional (...she doesn't make any money at it!) cosplayer who's already made one of the previewed (and, I think, rejected) costumes from the film (photo on left) and I strongly suspect is gathering pink silks and researching blonde wigs already for a second run.

And finally, now the film's out, I've written a page about Mother Gothel herself.
