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!

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.

Latexmania BBQ party

I'm not working as a teacher today, so no Teacher Style photo untill tomorrow. Instead i will tell you about the party we had yesterday. We had a 10 years anniversary BBQ party with some friends. 10 years ago i was asked to model some Latex by a marvelous lady, Kirsi Nisonen. I said yes gladly. It was a start of a beautiful friendship and my loveaffair with latex clothing.

The location was delightful! It's called Teurastamo (slaughterhouse because of it's former purpose but these days it's a place for fun, friends, food and sharing, not death).

Me and Kirsi.

I'm wearing an amazing 80's does 40's/50's vintage dress from Ansa (where else! :)

Unforgettable Lauren Bacall

Goodbye Betty

 Lauren in "To Have And Have Not", 1944

One of my all time favourite femme fatales, actress Lauren "Betty" Bacall has passed away yesterday. She was the last one of the hollywood golden era stars mentioned in the song Vogue by Madonna.
Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske, september 16, 1924), member of the original Rat Pack, appeared in 30 films, her movie career lasted over six decades and she also found success on Broadway.

Lauren Bacall received an Honorary Academy Award in 2009.
