Some vintage stalls were just an old boar….


This talented lady was crocheting berets. I bought the one she is just finishing here as it matched my Heyday coat!

Mr Mew modelling a rather dashing look in ridiculous heat…but the boy was determined.


Forget Woody’s Roundup, this is Patton’s version!


Just reading our favourite military magazine!


Visiting my wonderful friends at their stall. I look slightly Suffragette-esque!


The gorgeous Luna at the Heyday stall wearing her ‘Poppy Nipple Hat’


The staff at the show are always so attentive! Lee Parker either proposing to Luna’s big toe or massaging her foot. I will let you decide the most attractive scenario.


My new half and half act!

War and Peace Revival 2013 – Gallery 1

Here is a small selection of photos from the 1st ever War and Peace Revival! More to come I promise, but I wanted to get these up as I know some of you are chomping at the bit!

It was incredibly hot for the whole week with only a short cloudy burst on the Friday. I didn’t get around the dioramas due to a hectic schedule and feeling as if I were walking through treacle from the heat, but did get to the Vintage Village and the rest!

More War and Peace Show Photos!

Thought I would share a few more snaps with your from Beltring. Enjoy!

Air Raid Shelter Manhole Cover

This Air Raid Shelter Manhole Cover was for sale in the market place. Was very tempted to put a decimal point between the 4 and 55 so I could take it home. An amazing piece of history!

WW2 ATS Girls and Pinup

Such lovely girls! ATS reenactors in uniform and a thorn between them 😉

darren, lewis and kitten-von-mew

Was fantastic having my step sons at the show on the Saturday. Such lovely boys and they really enjoyed the show!


Mimi and Mew Mew!


The Not Forgotten Association and Kitten von Mew in the main marquee


It’s parading cats and dogs! You can see the slight ‘Please don’t bite my face off’ look in my eyes. This is because the owner handed it to me whilst saying “Just don’t look him in the eyes and you’ll be fine…”


Kitten von Mew with two VERY handsome gents.


Posing on top of some ammunition boxes near the main marquee. Wearing a new playsuit from Big Beautiful Barbara Brown!


Sue Hodge with my 2013 calendar. She loved July! Can’t wait to see this lovely lady next year.


Awww…My little cousin Paul, who came to the show on the Sunday. Was great to see him at his 1st WWII event!










Lili Mewleen Act Debuted at Beltring 2012

I have just received some great photos from Lee Parker of my new Lili Marleen inspired act, so I thought I would share some with you all!

My very talented Mr Mew made the lamp from scratch and I made my pasties, fascinator, train and garter. The dress once belonged to a drag queen (who has passed away, rest his soul). I stripped it of all the black ruffles, tassel trim, netting and fake boob inserts and designed it into a sleek and sexy gown with rhinestones and turquoise trimmings.

The gorgeous corset is actually from Vollers Corsets! When I did my interview for The One Show at the corset factory, I got to see some lovely designs that weren’t even for sale. I saw these zip down corsets and thought they were a brilliant idea! They are still tight lace with metal boning, but have a ‘quick release’ function with a very heavy duty, military grade zipper at the side. Determined for other corset lovers to see these unique designs, I vowed to wear one in an act to demonstrate how easy and sexily them come off! No more tangled lacing! Hurrah!
I wrote a parody of Lili Marleen as well as sang The Boys in the Backroom for Terry Elliot! You can see this act next at Twinwood Festival 2012!
