Teacher Style day 16, The Pre-Raphaelites

Todays Teacher Style picture was inspired by a Pre-Raphaelite painting. I had some help. My students Saila, Anna, Ida and Joni were my marvelous assistants, thanks guys!

Everything i wear is second hand.

The painting was of course Dante Gabriel Rossetti's 'The Bride' (also 'The Beloved'). He finished it in1866 but continued to make changes to it throughout his life. 
(Oil on canvas, dimensions 80 cm × 76 cm)

Nailed it! Hehehehe!

Woolen jumper - wonderful 1940's vintage jumper! Found dumpster diving. The original blue collar was made of silk and it was in very bad shape so i had to make a new one. I found cotton fabric that was just the same colour as the original.

The first issue of the first Finnish burlesquezine Paljettipommi is here!

Here it is folks! The first Finnish burlesque magazine Paljettipommi! 

 I wrote a little article about the (probably)most well known burlesque song, "The tripper".

There's also recipes of the Cointreau cocktails made for me, Kiki and Bettie by Cointreau bartender back in 2011.

Read Paljettipommi online here.

Listen to the burlesque classics playlist i made for the first issue here.
