Henrietta's new gig

Post by Robert Frazer on Mon 28 Nov 2011 - 18:19

Sorry for my infrequent posting in the last few weeks - I've been buried in preparation for a new job that I'm starting on Wednesday, heading off the Switzerland to be a tour rep for Crystal Ski... which is actually kind of awkward, seeing as I've been assigned to the Boxhead bit and I can't speak any German beyond Enschuldigen sie, bitte, sprechen sie Englishce? Along with Panzer Marsch!, Hande Hoch! and Was ist sein Regiment, Britisher?

Anyway, I was in Kingston-upon-Thames the other week to attend the job interview, and while ambling about the high street afterwards I noticed a kindred soul in a shop window. Just as I've been seeking new employment, so has our dear friend Henrietta - now that she's been sacked from the cast of Gunslinger Girl she's paying the bills by jobbing as a clothing model:





I do remember Banksy stencilling Henrietta on a wall for one of his pictures - GSG has always been good for that easy off-the-shelf pathos and juxtaposition, after all - but while this shop was for very hip and with-it urban gear, but there was some more anime tat behind the counter so I think that the owner might be a secret fan. Smile

Nice. It certainly does seem that way. They look way to similar to be meer coincidence, and good luck with the new job. Just started a long term sub job my self today.

Banksy picture? All I know is that's the pose for the new(?) PVC figurine of Henrietta...

Wow... sudden urge to bust out the spray-cans again...

Yeah, I believe the original Banksy was just called the "Blue Girl". I assume he just found the image appealing...

...though part of me hopes Banksy is a secret GSG fan: because that would just be too awesome for words.

That's actually the pose of the present Henrietta PVC figurine. Wink
