Have a Heart on Valentine’s Day

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 🙂

Summer Pin Up Girls by Elvgren

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.

Gil Elvgren’s Real Woman In a Pin Up Girl Reality

I while ago I wrote a posted a piece on how Pin-Up artists like Gil Elvgren were inspired by real women.

It was a case of: from photography to painting.

I adore watching how they reinterprit the features and give them a Pin-Up twist.

You can find the previous post HERE.

I have come across some more images I’d like to share with you:

Rainy Day Pin-Up Girls

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Continuing with the Rainy Day theme, here are some beautiful illustrations to proove that even the most cloudy day can be beautiful and bright 😉

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way.

Sex and the City vs. Pin-Up Girls

 

In June 2003 TV Guide ran a special series of covers featuring the Sex and the City ladies channelling their inner Pin-Up.

These reminded me how much I loved watching SATC and how bummed I was about the films. They really should have left well enough alone…
