Have a Heart on Valentine’s Day

Posted on

First things first, THANK YOU to all of you who have already sent in your cropped features :)
I still need more of your face/body parts for my FanstRA4 project, so please send them my way!

Keep them coming please, and I WILL start cold calling (or emailing, as the case may be) to fill my needed quota of a hundred billion (more or less…).

Valenite's Day Pin Up

Scrolling down at the post published at I Want to be a Pin Up, I really do look like a total Armitage creep/weirdo/call the police and get a restraining order, because it’s been RAining Armitage over here for months.

Just call me Miss Pervy Armitage (no, really, I’m planning on officially changing it…).

As part of Valentine’s Day I’ve decided to separate my posts into those that refer more to the official name of my blog, and those that are connected to the Armi-loony in me, which will be posted tomorrow.

Time for the Valentine’s Day Pin Up Girls :)

Some people are surprised I embrace Valentine’s Day so much, seeing that I’m single and jaded to the extreme, but I can’t help but support a day that’s all about love, in whatever shape or form it happens to be present in your life.

I wish you true romance  on the 14th of February, chocolates and long-stemmed roses from a passionate lover, champagne and some extra vigorous chandelier sex.

Then again, if you happen to be like me and you don’t even have a proper chandelier to hang from, I wish you the feeling of being loved by friends and family :)

Walt Otto’s Pin Up Girls

Posted on

Autumn is slowly slipping away from us, but I found these beautiful illustrations by Walt Otto that are reminiscent of harvest season.

They are very wholesome indeed :)

Fritz Willis is one of the most famous vintage illustrators.

He worked on ads for Pepsi, Quality Papers, Max Factor, Purex, Sunkist, Crown Zellerbach, SpringMaid Sheets and others.

He also did story work for Esquire, Saturday Evening Post, Redbook, Collier’s, and covers for Ice Follies programs from 1952-1969.

Oneq Nao’s Pin Up Girls

Burlesque Pin up girl

I’ve decided to present a different style of Pin Up today.

There’s something eye-catching about the marriage of 40s and 50s sensuality with  an Art Nouveau feel and a modern twist.

Oneq Nao is a very interesting Japanese artist, and I can’t wait to see more.

Edward Runci’s Pin Up Girls

Posted on

It’s been a while since we had some Pin Up Girls, so today I wanted to post images by Edward Runci.

His skills are comparable to  Gil Elvgren.

 Runci girls frequently got caught in compromising situations like climbing a fence to flee a bull, or dress blowing up on a Ferris Wheel ride.

His girls are rosy-cheeked, voluptuous, often blonde Marilyn Monroe-types who radiate  wholesome sensuality.

 Who doesn’t like a cheeky Pin Up!

Jay Scott Pike’s Pin Up Girls

Posted on

Although  I usually focus on the works of Gil Elvgren, there are so many amazing Pin Up painters worth mentioning.

Todays Girls are the work of Jay Scott Pike.

There’s a lot of knickers / panties dropping which can only be a sign of how inferior elastic waists were back in the day :)

Happy 4th of July to all of you who are celebrating!

Summer Pin Up Girls by Elvgren

Posted on

The posts have been heavy on Richard Armitage lately.

What can I say? The heart wants…

Time to balance out my posts with a different type of pretty!

 I’m away for a longish weekend, in an attempt to spend this scorching weather in the countryside.

I have one more exam on Saturday, then that’s it for this semester.

In the meantime, here are some beautiful images of Elvgren Pin Up Girls.

Smart Pin-Up Girls

Posted on

 

June is a tough month, both as a teacher and a student.

I have to wrap up the semester and get through exam season.

I can’t wait for summer to start.

Oh, the sweet bliss of laziness!

Until then, here are some Pin-Up Girls to brighten your day ;)

Salute to the May Sun

Posted on

I love the first week of May because we have two national holidays separated by a day.

This year they are on Tuesday and Thursday.

That means that by taking 3 free days off work, you have a glorious 9 day holiday.

This is what is refered to as The Long May Weekend!

It’s an absolute favorite of mine, second only to the Christmas-New Years Eve period.

The sun has been shining and the birds chirping, as I sit here at my summer-house, away from the city!

It has truly been stunning.

It also means I’ve been removed from my every day life (that’s the point of a long weekend, right?).

As the internet connection is at times frustrating, I’ve also been a bit removed from here too.

I hope you are having a great week and I’ll do my best to post something every now and again :)

Ps. I’ve just finished reading the Shades of Grey Series and I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you
