I’ve received tons of requests for a re-style of Daisy Buchanan. She was one of the very first posts I did back in 2009 so she was due. Having been unable to marry Gatsby prior to the story taking place, Daisy found herself a rich and suitable man in Tom Buchanan. However, once Gatsby begins hosting lavish parties and bathing in money, she rekindles their relationship. When her husband discovers the affair, he plays on Daisy’s greed and pride to end their love after an intense scene at The Plaza Hotel by exposing Gatsby as a bootlegger. Daisy rushes out of the city with Gatsby chasing after her and in their journey home, Daisy kills Myrtle (a minor character) with Gatsby’s car. Unable to identify the driver, Myrtle’s husband tracks Gatsby as the owner and murders him before committing suicide. Daisy, once in love with Gatsby, fails to attend his funeral and faces no penalty for her crime. Oh Daisy, I wanted to like you so much, but you’re disgusting.

Quite suprisingly, I got a lot of requests for Poison Ivy. Anyway, here she is…the Venus Flytrap of Gotham City and general hobag! Many of you will know that she was once a friendly scientist but was then transformed into Uma Thurman to wreak havoc on the poor citizens of Gotham. Luckily for us, Batman, Robin and Alicia Silverstone (for some generations) were there to save the day. Although, has me thinking Poison Ivy had it right all along. Oh well.
