Self Portraits of The Scandelous Countess

Read About the First Fashion Photography Model , Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione, who financed, costumed and choreographed a series of self-portraits that chronicled her life, including the parts she played on stage. They continued until near the time of her death, when the collection was around 700 photos. She first gained noteriety as the mistress of Napoleon III.

13 Things I Love Thursday

Inspired by Gala Darling

Thirteen Things I Love This Thursday:

1. Photos of the Belle Epoque's scandelous super-model, Evelyn Nesbit:

2. Rod Serling's 'Night Gallery', my newest vintage t.v. obsession:

3. Witches! And my ever-expanding gallery of them: I'm drawing them too. Perfect follow-up to the murder ballad illustrations.

4. Director Bill Leonard's Lizzie Borden production:

(Which did not star Elizabeth Montgomery, of course, but I loved her as Lizzie.)

5. Trains! I'm so excited about upcoming projects with the Railway Museum!

6. Once popular, now obscure American and English Literature, 1880-1910(ish). I've been utterly engrossed by tale after tale.

7. Derby Pie:

8. Seeing my guitar and voice student every Thursday!

9. Lemon ginger tea - I think I like it as much as Oolong...

10. Lost River Pizza omfg!!! It may be the best I've ever had.

11. Lost River Cave and other legends of Jesse James. They say his ghost hangs out in Bardstown.

12. Calvin Klein's 'Euphoria' - it smells sooooo good.

13. Vintage accessories - awesomeness! (I want this one!)
