‘You’ve got your handsome prince – you couldn’t spare him could you?

From the dark days of yore come ‘Lady Lust-a-Lot’ and ‘Lady Longing-for-Love’. Borne on the backs of ‘Eric and Ernie’ their delightfully drippy dragons, these ‘bootiful’ Westcountry damsels with their black teeth, spots and long gnarly hair are on a constant futile crusade to find their knights in shining armour and other little princes and princesses along the way.

Damsels in Distress would be a wonderful spectacle for fairy-tale, historical, mythical, fantasy, and Halloween events. 

Very visual, no language needed! Swank at their best!


Ask us a question, we'd love to chat!
