Studio Girl Cosmetics

Original ad here.

Everyone knows Avon and Mary Kay. But few recall "Studio Girl Cosmetics," although they endured for decades.

Here's a site dedicated to their memory, maintained by a descendant of the founder.

What I find most intriguing is that they appeared to have had a sideline of vinyl albums as well. Music to paint your face by?

Be sure to check out the "performance" around 23:00, when ballet slippers and a Skeletor mask come into play.

Masterpiece

The picture above is just a portion of what is recognized by Guinness as the worlds longest sculpture. Artist Zheng Chunhui took 4 years to complete this beautiful masterpiece which is fashioned from one 40 foot long tree trunk. There are more pictures at the link.

Miss Pickle of 2014

Here is a new post that joins two previous ones: my post with the video about the PICKLE INDUSTRY, and Alex's post about MISS KANGAROO.

It appears that at least since 1964, the union known as the Pickle Packers International has been choosing a woman to be "Miss Pickle."

The first foto below comes from THE DAILY EGYPTIAN for October 30, 1964. The second foto comes from the BUFFALO COURIER-EXPRESS for June 24, 1967, while the article comes from the TUSCALOOSA NEWS for May 7, 1967.

Finally, we come to Miss Pickle of 2014, who seems more like a cartoon company mascot than a beauty-queen.

Never Inject Stuff In Your Stuff

image
Injecting your penis with vasoline to make it appear larger is a very bad idea. The description of the surgery necessary to effect repairs is cringe-worthy.

The Little Foxes Club

image

I can't find too much information on the "Little Foxes Club," whose mission was to promote African-American female beauty. In 1958, they had a beauty contest in Detroit.

Original article here.

And they were mentioned in this 1966 cheesecake photo.

I can only imagine the loud controversy such an organization would bring down upon itself in these times.
