I am Soooo excited to share this with you - my Birds of Prey noir commission from Craig Cermak!!!
With Maureen O’Hara as Barbara Gordon/Oracle, Hedy Lamarr as Helena Bertinelli/The Huntress and Joan Bennett as Dinah Lance/Black Canary. Beautiful and dangerous, protecting Gotham from and IN the shadows.
I told Craig that I wanted a movie poster of the BoP as a classic, 1930′s b&w film, and some basic details.
And as always, he more than exceeded my wish list needs!
it was undoubtedly difficult to focus throughout the rest of their day in the museum with something so tangibly alluring lingering at the forefront of daisy’s mind. her kisses and touches lingered for a beat too long as they parted ways, the brunette promising to be over at his place later with all the usual bearings — drinks, snacks, some cheesy movie — but there was an unspoken promise that it would be a far cry from their usual evenings spent together. much like their first kiss, daisy felt maddeningly EXCITED for what was to come, gleeful as a fucking teenager. they’d spent most of their night indulging in their new brand of saccharine affection, memes and fond taunts, tossing popcorn at each other and sipping beers, before daisy curled herself on bennett’s chest for the movie, though the love story onscreen was nothing compared to them and certainly the furthest thing on her mind; no, she’s too potently aware of his warm skin, his arms, his lips, everything about him just beneath her fingertips. to nobody’s shock, making the first move isn’t too out of character for the brunette, evidenced by the way her lips travel along his jawline languidly, pausing only when her mouth makes it way to shell of his ear. ‘ why do you always feel so nice? how come you weren’t always mine? ’ she whispers, hand trailing down the center of his chest. @rilcybennett
