Booty: Pretty Pirate Pictures Part IV

It's that time again, Brethren. Yes, lovely ladies in seafaring situations offered for your delight. I’ve started off with my favorite pinup artist Gil Elvgren’s painting entitled “Sailor Beware”. Clearly, Mr. Elvgren is referring to his subject. Climbing a rope ladder in heels is asking for a salt water bath. See more of his work here.

Our next two pictures are photographs from fashion magazines of the ‘20s and ‘30s respectively. I found them both at Mariana’s wonderful blog The Flapper Girl where she features a wide selection of pictures from the jazz age. Stop by and look through her posts when you have a minute:An unknown model aboard ship. Doubtless that knit bathing suit was at the very least uncomfortable after a dip, but the sail is neat and trim.
Marie MacDonald looking quite nautical in front of an old style life preserver. Her smile is adorable and her suit looks a lot more practical than the last one.
And, as I’ve a lot going on, that’s all for today. Given the loveliness of the pictures, you’ll forgive me I’m sure. Happy Friday; see you tomorrow for Sailor Mouth Saturday.

Ahoy, Pauline! And Happy Friday to you too! It was a fairly productive and (hopefully) pleasant start to your (and Brigit's) birthday weekend, Pirate Queen.

Ahoy, Timmy! Well done by Brigit; but I might be getting a little too old for "Birthday weekends".
