Russ and I got to know Calamity Jane through Deadwood (the show) and we were so inspired by her absurd antics, balanced with genuine care for others.
Why Calamity Jane?
We were really into Deadwood.
No, I mean we were REALLY into Deadwood.
And of all the characters in Deadwood, our favorite was the foul-mouthed, forward-feeling, sick-tending, loyal-to-the-ending Calamity Jane.
Jack Crawford wrote, "She was simply a notorious character, dissolute and devilish, but possessed a generous streak which made her popular."
So when we were thinking of this company, and of the legends we pay tribute to, we knew we had to dedicate a special place in our collection to Calamity Jane.
"If a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one." - Calamity Jane
Maybe my favorite quote of all time, from the mouth of a whiskey-soaked, leather-clad, foul-mouthed ruffian. It's fitting.
And that's the inspiration behind Outlaw's Calamity Jane!
