Unidentified stage scenario

From John N. and  Crinolyn



Since there are several fetish components to this
picture from
Kristi, we have placed it our fetish section

 


Sonia:

"I've been wandering the Net for months to find rare vintage photos of the Natchez Pilgrimage yearly celebrations. Since 1932, when it all started, especially from the 30s to the 60s or 70s, and probably up to nowadays, it seems they dressed their Southern Belles hostesses in amazingly beautiful elaborate white dresses... (upper right)

"In my sense, Natchez, Mississippi would be far more interesting to visit in terms of Southern Belles fashion
than Mobile Alabama and their mono-form but colourful Azalea Trail Maids... (lower right)
"I also stumbled upon 
The Society of Martha Washington Colonial Pageant and Ball in Laredo TX, organizing
festivals since 1939... And also the 
Cape Fear Garden Club in Wilmington NC, doing theirs since 1925..." 

 

A rather unusual, but certainly
exciting Steampunk

John N.  points to this video of Connie Stevens singing with Edd "Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"  Burns. 
Those old enough will remember him as the private eye sidekick on the popular Era TV
 show, 'Seventy-Seven Sunset Strip." Connie's dress is a delight!

So perfect we suspect this is digital

Provided by Kristi

"Input from Elizabeth Ann H.: I'm in complete agreement that this image is digital.  I find it difficult to envision a normal person standing with legs apparently straight and the torso turned at that angle, seemingly back away from where the hips would have to be.  But it's a beautiful dress, and that's the point!"

Crinolyn has put this film clip together from the 1956 film, Rock,Rock,Rock

(Petticoats under dancing skirts, rock 'n roll style!) Probably the best teenage dance scenes EVER to be placed on film. This is the best example of 50's teenage innocence with petticoats which go flying during the great dance numbers!! NOT to be missed. Plenty of low angle shots of the girls' petticoats during the musical numbers.

More Brigitte Bardot
pictures to add to our collection

From John N.   


Sonia found a nice collection from a Paris museum website.
"A 19th century fashion prints series from a French artist that'd escaped my knowledge: Charles Pilatte :
 
"I always liked 19th C. fashion prints because they very often depict gorgeous fashion, especially from the 1850s-60s. And lots of these are amazing... So when I got on those museum pages, I was (again) confronted to the difficulties of downloading any of it... In this very case, what's the big idea to prevent the downloading of stuff that's way past copyright limits ??? Anyways after a few attempts, I found a work around and so here they are, all of them reunited to my Rosebud Sonia Flickr pages." Note how some of them are way over the top ! ^__^"
