Feminism or what?

Posted by Moulin On November - 16 - 2014

I have had many jobs in my 23 years of life and I have had to wear many uniforms with them. I have been a ‘punk’, a grunge goth, a Victorian goth, and now a rockabilly wannabe pinup star. I have worn many different styles and many different makeup-ed faces to (or lack there of). Some I fell into, some I was pressured into and some I wanted to be. I have battled with my body image and been pressured into looking a

Feminine?

Feminine?

certain way. Now I am coming to terms with my image and have a wonderful boyfriend to help me. My dream job is nearer now than ever and my wardrobe is, well I think. truly fantastic.

Pinup of the week four years later: Kitten Kaboom

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 29 - 2014

I began modeling at a young age, and I have grown to find the education side of the industry to be very rewarding. Coaching aspiring models on posing, working with photographers on model direction, and participating in photography workshops is how I spent much of last year. I’m still making my own art in the meantime, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very talented people along the way.

Photographer showcase: Jo Vallianatou

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 22 - 2014

Photographer Jo Vallianatou was born in early 90’s. She studied photography and painting at Vivarte school of applied arts.
Jo: As a photographer i love the “alternative” style. Why I love 50’s?? Because it was a post war area full of optimism, beacause of the dresses and make-up! Of course because of Elvis and Hitchcock movies. Oh because of a 52’s Cadilac Sedan that I’m in love with. And finally I love 50’s because of the hair that Audrey Hepburn had and of course the “new look” of Christian Dior.

Pinup of the week: Lucy Lynn

LucyLyn

Well im vixxxen Lucy Lynn…a true southern blonde bombshell…we like our drinks and men both strong…only 24 years old but I have a old soul…I was born in the wrong era.
Its so liberating and such a sexual thrill to get all dressed up like Marilyn, anna Nicole or Bettie. they are my inspirations. I read once that Marilyn walked like there was a string attached to her head so she just floated. Ive been practising this…harder than you think hahaha. my hobbies are anything to do with hair and makeup or vintage clothing and jewelry. Car shows and concerts also rock! I love to dance and mingle with people. I can talk to anyone Im def not shy at all…. I recently got involved into the modeling part and I’m hooked! There is no high like being in front of the camera. I totally turn into the vixxxen.

Rockabilly is taking over the Rotterdam (again)

Posted by Rocky On June - 21 - 2014

Photo by Terral Bouman

All of my 22 years here on earth I’ve lived in Rotterdam. I grew up with wild rockin’ stories about jivin’ in Jailhouse Place, and late nights at The Flaming Star. But those places are no more 🙁 So I traveled all over the country for party’s, thinking that rockabilly in Rotterdam is gone. Until the last few months!

It started with a event called “De Rotte Tiet”. In english, translates to ” the rotten titty”. But let me explain! The name came from a parody of The Titty Twister, from From Dusk Till Dawn! Born from the brains of Jesse van der Heijden and Dennis Klootwijk, the plan is to organize a party, where you can just be yourself. Guys can be just classy lads, girls can be pretty ladies! Not like the disco,hipster and hiphopin’ folk on the regular places. The evening is filled with dirty Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly, boppin’ tracks! Hans Worst is there to still you’re hunger with sauce, right from the grill. You can have you’re picture taken! And it goes on till late! I know, because I spinned the wax there! I danced like crazy when I didn’t spin. But the best part, I saw the older generation rockers and the newer generation in one place! So I highly recommend to go there! And I Look forward to the next edition!

Pinup of the week: Madeleine Mayhem

Posted by Miriam On June - 9 - 2014

MadeleineMadeleine Mayhem is the kind of lady the un-dead would roam the earth for, and rightly so.
With her infectious smile and haunting demeanour this 5”4 cocktail of ink, orange hair and sky high killer heels is the perfect excuse to ‘dig yourself up’ over.

To start at the very beginning (which according to Julie Andrews) is a very good place to start Miss Mayhem’s tale put simply would go a little like this:
Once upon a something a little girl was born into a world of sewing machines and rock ‘n’ roll. Time passed, almost 20 years in-fact and that little girl was asked to model a dress in a fashion parade at a Tattoo Expo. I don’t think that designer knew exactly what they were about to unleash on the world. That fateful day teamed with her existing love of horror and a nickname from a very Reckless friend and Miss Madeleine Mayhem was alive…. It’s ALIVE!!!

Alongside running her clothing label Dead End Dames, being a pin-up girl seems like second nature to Mayhem and from then till now and forever it will remain one of her true loves. Inspired by strong willed ladies like Tempest Storm and her all time favourite dame Vampira, Madeleine Mayhem has become a force to be reckoned with while still remaining down to earth enough to sit here with yours truly and have a Captain Morgans, dry and lime while discussing beauty secrets, tattooists (check out Richie Blackheart and Graf) and why you should never trust a guy who asks if this smells like chloroform to you?

Pinup of the week: Nikki Lynn

Posted by Miriam On May - 12 - 2014

Nicole3

My name is Nikki Lynn. Born and raised near Vancouver, Canada. I grew up a bit of a country girl, riding horses my whole life. Never afraid to get a little dirt under my nails but always passionate for the glam of retro hair/makeup/fashion. I have loved being in front of the camera since I was a little girl and have done many hair modeling and pin up style photo shoots through the years. I have had a strong affinity for all things vintage from a young age. I love cooking, baking and gardening. I also can’t deny my love for a little shake on the dance floor!

Pinup of the week: Dana Ange

Posted by Miriam On May - 5 - 2014

Dana

Hi my name is Dana and I am a rockabilly chic through and through. I live in Virginia and grew up in the city of Norfolk.I am a hairstylist with a passion for rockabilly. When I was growing up, times were very though for my family but we always had two things love and my daddy listening to Elvis .I was not like most girls.Infact,I grew up in a garage helping my daddy build, chopp the tops, and playing in bondo. Yes it’s true, I played with bondo instead of playto.

Rockabilly is a way of life for me and is who I am. Its a feeling of loving and respecting all things vintage and classic. I often said I was born in the wrong era.I wouldn’t change anything about the way I grew up because it is who I am today .I really know what it feels like to have an old soul. Thats just it……It’s in your blood and soul. So for all you rockabillys out there, never change because we are what you call a classic.
