vintage patterns

Tuesday, September 13, 2011


As I was looking through the 1968 vogue magazine for vintage dresses I spotted this add for the movie Barbarella with Jane Fonda and just had to include it for a pre-Halloween spot. Whenever I think of campy, sexy, sci-fi, costumes, Barbarella always comes to mind, and I haven't seen the movie since the 70s.

My favorite cult female sci-fi movie is Tank Girl. If you like strong, campy, funny female leads be sure to check it out.

Okay her costumes are a bit on the grunge side, but fashion is fashion, some high, some sexy, casual, boho and grunge.


  1. Last summer I went to the Sci-Fi museum in Seattle. They had one of the costumes that Anne Francis wore in Forbidden Planet... smallest waist line I've ever seen!

  2. Have you ever heard of Bazooka Jules? She's another strong sexy gal. My hubby likes to claim that I'm the street version! =p

  3. Found your blog through HOT PINK COMBAT BOOTS I am total fan of Tankgirl so you must be cool plus I also live in Oregon. Cool blog you got there!
