    I am actually confused why she doesn’t already have a kick-ass movie on her.

    Could you like, NOT use racial slurs? G*ps* is an offensive word and is NOT one we use to describe ourselves – Roma or some other classification of itinerant people would be a lot better. We all get grouped together even if we’re different ethnicities. :/

    Changed! Apologies, I learned that distinction surprisingly late in life (Roma folk are very rare where I live). When I saw it written in one of the newspaper articles on her, it didn’t trigger automatic warning bells in my head because I’d not strongly enough lodged it as an epithet in my head. Sorry, will try and do better next time.

  • I may be a bit late to the table with this, but apparently there is/was some sort of play being run out in San Diego. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2010/sep/20/fencing-champ-jaguarina-toast-san-diegos-1880s-boo/

  • Random Personage

    Just to say, her real name was Ella Hattan and La Jaguarina started out as a personality she adopted http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/houghton/2011/12/07/la-jaguarina/

  • It was only in latter years, as she segued to an acting role, that the public learned her real name was Ella Hattan.

    Wow, some “scar”. Heaven forbid you draw a woman with anything that might detract from her male-approved ideas of what is attractive.

  • Jason Porath

    Hi! I am sorry you appear to be having a bad day. I sympathize with the aesthetic I’ve chosen not being to your liking, and your further dissatisfaction over the amount of historical scarification evident in the photo reference. I hope you find an artist whose work you prefer, and that your day improves.

    I have an inch long scar from a tree branch going into my forearm and it is just as pale as the one depicted on La Jaguarina’s nose. ;)
