I asked my beloved pinner to create a Peaches Pinterest board of ideas for quirky brides. While doing so she found a wonderful site called Offbeat Bride, run by a fellow Seattleite. It’s chock-a-block full of interesting, unique and personal ideas for a nontraditional wedding. This photo is from this post and taken by James Rouse.
Writer and pornographer Tristan Taormino’s blog explores the porn industry from an academic and feminist perspective that’s truly interesting. Warning, don’t click this link at work.
Des Hommes et des Chatons (men and kittens). Need I say more?
Eugenio Recuenco’s photos and videos are decadent tributes to an imagined past and surreal present. If you needed another reason to break out the eyeliner. . .
The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is a twenty year old celebration of lowbrow beach culture (mermaids! tridents! crazy mint green wigs!), art, performance, circus, glitter, and summer. Coney Island has had its hands full rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy hit, and the parade may not happen this year if they don’t raise extra cash. They’ve got a Kickstarter fundraiser that I highly encourage you to contribute to–even if you can’t go to NYC, you can get stickers! If you’ve never used Kickstarter before, it’s easy and safe; no money is collected unless the goal is met.
The photo above was taken by moi in 2010, and if you ask really kindly, I may show you the tattoo on my hip that Coney Island also inspired. The place is just that cool.
Eve Arnold’s photos of Marilyn are serving as my reminder what summer will feel like. . . if we ever get it here in Seattle!
