Horst: the lonely pirate by Annalee Horst: the lonely pirate by Annalee
Since I cannot offer something new at the moment and it's already a while ago that I submitted the last piece... here is a semi-new pic. Some might recognize it from the bunny calendar. It's the good old Horst. I wanted to wait until Halloween with submitting this but that's so long and this way I can feel like a rebel for submitting it in the totally wrong month. I'm so unpredictable. I'm scaring myself.


Every boy wants to be a pirate at Halloween. Except Horst, he always wanted to be Superman so he could wear those tight pantyhose. But when he was grown up he decided that the time had finally come to be a pirate once in his miserable life.
What he couldn't calculate was that some people have problems with guys in the 40s wearing pirate-bunny costumes that smell like a liqueur store.
They called the police, horst got arrested and spent the night in prison with Tony "The Tongue".

The picture and the little story associated with it reminds me of something Tim Burton would do.

You are positively brilliant.
I adore you.

I was so excited to see that you had posted something new the other day, that I almost peed my pants and I faved your work but forgot to comment on it. Silly me...

Can't wait to see more! :)

Horst ist der Typ im Hasenkostüm. Der Pirat ist quasi ein Kostüm über dem Kostüm.

Oh that Horst.

I like this. I might be doing a fanart of Horst sometime in the future (with your blessing only of course). I'm pretty sure he's on the april month of the calendar. But anyway, yeah Horst in a costume is interesting because it's like his bunny costume is his true identity so he must wear any other costume over that. That interests me.

ooooh halloween. One year I was a kitten princess from outerspace, the next year when I was 6 years old I was a dead prostitute - and no, it didn't go over too well when people asked me what I was when I went out trick-or-treating. A couple years ago I was pirate radio.

Very inventive costumes... that's funny, my sister also was a dead prostitute for Halloween once and I was the one who killed her aka Alex from A Clockwork Orange. But everybody thought I was Charly Chaplin. :(
How exactly does pirate radio look?
