Chichi of London Pin Up Girl 3 - Nurse

A Little Pin Up History from Gaius Luminos — Designer, Founder and Owner of Chichi of London:

During World War II pin up pictures of scantily clad movie stars were extremely popular among US servicemen. Whether it was a painted calendar, advertisement, or the photo pin ups that the G.I.s pinned on their locker doors, and which later adorned the noses of their bomber planes in WW2.

Pin up art continued to grow in popularity, and sophistication through the 1950s. Movies were made about pin up artists and models, and most actresses of the time were considered pin ups first then actresses. Marilyn Monroe was Earl Morans’ favorite model before and after she became a movie star. Numerous celebrities posed for pin up and glamour artists.

Playboy was instrumental in changing the world of glamour photography as the first magazine that both focused on nude models and targeted the mainstream consumer. In December 1953, Hugh Hefner published the first edition of Playboy with Marilyn Monroe on the cover and nude photos of Monroe inside.

After Playboy broke through, many magazines followed and this was instrumental in opening the market for the introduction of glamour photography into modern society.

Skylab NASA Suit by Chichi of London

Get ready for a wild space ride in this sexy NASA female flight suit set. It comes in 4 different combinations — sleeveless, half sleeve, full sleeve and full EVA with sculpted parts. This wonderfully crafted suit is part of Chichi of London’s Action Series which is available at the main store.

Skylab NASA Suit

With 100% accurate detailing, this versatile 20 piece suit may be mixed and matched to make multiple combinations. It also comes with a helmet and life support pack. An impressive outfit to wear in a space-themed party and even on the catwalk — intricate and very sexy!

Note from Gaius Luminos — Designer, Founder and Owner of Chichi of London:

Women began flying in space only two years after the first human spaceflight in history, performed by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in 1961. The first female to fly was cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, who piloted the Soviet Union’s Vostok 6 mission in June 1963, becoming the first woman in space.

Twenty years later, the first American woman in space, Sally Ride, flew on the space shuttle Challenger in June 1983.

Since then, women have made many more firsts in space, including the first woman spacewalker — Russian Svetlana Savitskaya in 1984 — and the first woman to command the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson in 2007.

Another record was broken in April 2010 when four women — three NASA astronauts and one Japanese astronaut — met on the International Space Station and became the most female spaceflyers in orbit at the same time.
