Here in the UK we don’t tend to make too much of a fuss over Shrove Tuesday. If you remember it at all, chances are you’ll mark the occasion only by buying some pancake mix and one of those little plastic lemons filled with lemon juice, and when you try and [...]
Set your pocket watches, calibrate your orreries, the New Year is almost upon us! And just when we were getting used to writing “13” at the end of the date, too.
We’ve taken a look at next year’s calendar, and it turns out there are a number of really exciting steampunk events happening across the US [...]
Picture a woman in the Wild West. If your mental image is of a rootin’, tootin’ cowgirl, you’re wrong, because while there was such a thing as a cowgirl, and while plenty of the women of the old west were, indeed, rootin’ and tootin’, the typical cowgirl ensemble of Stetson-style cowboy hat, tasselled shirt, blue [...]
While the majority of pinup girls were living, breathing human beings, photographed for postcards, posters and magazines, there has long been a tradition of pinups created with pencil, pen, paints and paper.
From the earliest days of comic books, artists began [...]
To quote a TV ad for a popular soft drink, the holidays are coming… holidays are coming, and that means that as well as buying gifts, eating too much, and pretending that no, really, you love it when opening a certain gift (there’s one every year), you’ll find yourself invited to a couple of parties.
Hello. Come in, don’t be shy. Now… We know why you’re here, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Your wife or girlfriend has told you the one thing she would really, really like for Christmas is a corset, and you said, “Sure. OK. I’ll sort that out.”
Then, the minute she was out of the [...]
Ask New Yorkers what they think of Brooklyn’s transformation in the last 10-15 years, and you won’t get the same answer twice. To some, its metamorphosis from rundown slum in the 1970s, ’80s and early ’90s to the home of the young artists and musicians who, 30 years earlier, would have lived in Greenwich Village [...]
Christmas is coming, and if there’s one thing we like to do as the cold, winter nights draw in, it’s settle down in front of a classic Disney movie.
Now, call us weird, but when we were knee-high to a grasshopper, we weren’t that big on Disney princesses. Oh, we’re sure they were sweet, and lovely [...]
Here’s a fun fact for you. Did you know that the word “brocade” has the same origins as the word “broccoli”? Nope… Neither did we. But it’s true. Both “brocade” and “broccoli” come from the Latin word “broccus”, meaning “projecting” or “pointed”. Now, while we’re not quite there’s anything particularly pointy or projected about broccoli [...]
Pinups came in all shapes and sizes – though, needless to say, curvaceous and buxom tended to be a common theme. There were those who appeared on the silver screen, and others who became famous through centrefolds. During World War II some were even honoured by having their likenesses painted on the nose cones of [...]
