Looking at your reflection...

He turned to the mirror, wondering what the strange power in the old house had done to him, as everything had faded from the present and changed back to how it had been in the 1950s...

... and he was surprised by how happy he was.

Anyway, last Christmas shopping achieved... now to buy something pretty for myself.

Three weeks to go...

I have no idea what led to Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a pinup Santa outfit. But if it were me I'd go with it too.

Dove Cameron in SPACE

Apparently Dove Cameron is joining Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD this year. And this year they're in space, so first thought, some kind of alien princess.

Who is she?

Image found thanks to Simone, via Tumblr, via someone's wallpaper website. That's all GIS could tell me.

So obviously she's me in a better world. :)

Speaking of historical costumes, here's one twice over

Lana Turner's black dress for the 1956 16th century historical drama Diane, on sale at Bonham's, a snip at $3000 reserve.
Thanks to fripperiesandfobs!

Remember, Remember...

Is it wrong to envy a 1600s outfit? On a modern actor, not someone actually back then.

I certainly couldn't look as mad wearing it as Liv Tyler does.

After Halloween...

And on into November. Still, not long till Pretty Party Dress Season. Or "Christmas" as I think some people call it.

At least it's easy to get makeup once a year

It's Halloween weekend, and I have some new black nail polish.

I wish I had a lot more.

The Golden Princess

The candles went out as you explored the palace, just as you reached a mirrored hallway. Then they light themselves again, and you see what has been done to you in the dark, how you now look and what you now wear...

A near life-size portrait of Jenna Coleman as Victoria on the cover of the country's biggest listings magazine. So beautiful... apart from the contact lenses that make her look like she's been blinded.

Ana De Armas

New to me, the "perfect girlfriend" in Blade Runner 2049.

Sadly I can't find a picture of her first outfit from the film. Something to look forward to... ;)

And how could I not...

Mosh in a reproduction bunny girl costume by 70s Bunny PJ Moriarty, based on the Zelda Wynn Valdes original design!

And we know what that means... Halloween. And we know what that means... costumes!

Morgana for Pinup Girl. Which is certainly the look I'd like to go for this Halloween. And more!

Your Name live?

Looks like we're getting a live-action US remake of hit body-swap anime Your Name. I wonder if they'll keep the title, because I never liked it.

Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy, has died. He helped make some sex talk more permissible in public, published some articles and stories that led to the "read it for the articles" jokes, married various women younger than the half plus eight equation and tried to make bathrobes cool.

But his lasting contribution is probably the Playboy Bunny.

I know it's a look I'd happily try at least once.

Captain Jane T Kirk

Of course, among TG fiction fans, the original Star Trek is famous for ending with "Turnabout Intruder", in which one of Kirk's exes steals his body and dumps him into hers. Sadly the status quo is restored by episode's end, so Kirk only goes where no man has gone before for half an hour or so.

A new Star Trek, with a female lead and a female captain (although also a male captain of the title ship) and a same-sex couple and... yay all round.
