Fashion from 1938 and other stuff

Few flea market finds...
Fashion from Paris and Helsinki, Kotiliesi magazine august 1938.

The coat on the right is by Sciaparelli.

I love old photos. Here's few i found today.

Guys looking smart 1938

Gals out and about.

As you may know, i love old paperbacks. This one is from the fifties.

Death on the Nile, 1937.

Here's another nice paperback. This was not a flea market find, but a treasure i found while dumpster diving.
The Deadly Truth, 1941. This one is from 1943 and the authors name is written wrong! It should be McCloy, not McGloy. Cover art by Eeli Jaatinen.

Day 19, Holy father christmas, Batman!

Day 9

Day 9 in my advent calendar is all about Eijo "Poika" Vesanto(1908-1950) who is one of my favourite finnish illustrators. He also did comics. I'm on a quest to find paperbacks with his covers. It can be tricky, because in many cases the artist is not mentioned.
Here's my first paperback with his cover! This one was printed in 1947. I love it! It's probably my favourite cover of all time!
Peter Cheyney, "Dames Don't Care"(1937).

Photo Shoots...

I've been busy with photo shoots lately. On saturday we had a photo shoot with Atelieri O.Haapala duo Saara and Marco and the lovely Itty Bitty Tease Cabaret girls. I did the hair for that shoot and Miia Magia did the make-up.

The set were absolutely divine...

The other shoot, with Kerttu Malinen and the Helsinki Burlesque posse, took place here ...

This was the very first time i was posing in a swimming pool with all my clothes on. This place is Yrjönkadun uimahalli (swimming hall of Yrjö-street...). It was opened 1928 and it was the first public swimming hall in Finland. And i think it's the only swimming hall in Helsinki where you can swim naked...

Day 6, Independence Day

A post card from Finland. Girl wearing finnish national costume.

This is not our national anthem, but a very beautiful song by composer Jean Sibelius.
