Welcome to Lucha Britannia by Jackoburra Welcome to Lucha Britannia by Jackoburra
Roll up! Roll up! Freaks of nature and dancers with death, come one and all into the ring and take part in the macabre mayhem of Lucha Britannia!

I had never heard of Lucha Britannia, or knew anything about wrestling, until I was invited by the C.E.O to watch one of their shows. There were so many crazy characters, hilarious and frightening costumes, dark acts and comedic intervals - it was so surreal and extremely fun! Fighters launched themselves at each other, then launched each other at the audience! I was almost kicked in the face at one point XD There were such intense exhibits and extravagant characters. Seriously. If you're into a mixture of wrestling, comedy, cabaret, and the circus, and you're in London, check out this place XD Whatever I write here can't do it justice, haha XD You have to be there really XD

Still, after that mad mad evening, I had to draw fanart over the weekend. I would have loved to draw more if I had the time - the costume and character designs there were so cool, they make fabulous cartoons XD So yep, here is a collection of THANK YOUS to all the ladies and gents who made that night so awesome :D And an extra thank you to the mysterious stripey masked Mr Von Hugo for getting me the perfect spot at the front of the crowd! I definitely got the best view XD

You can find out more about Lucha Britannia on their website luchabritannia.com/

I never heard of Lucha Britannia. Your art and description really makes me wish I lived in London now. I love the nurse and that guy down in the bottom right with what looks like acid pouring from his mouth XD. Was that part of the show?

Gosh XD; sorry for the late reply! Lucha Britannia was a crazy and unique experience - tis a pity I hadn't heard about it sooner XD The guy on the bottom right ... yeah his entrance into the ring was really creepy, he's into dark magic, and at the end of his introduction he started drooling green stuff from his mouth which was .. charming haha XD
