Pulp Fiction: Inspired Cover Art
Perhaps I've been on Netflix and Hulu a bit too much as of late- watching old film noir flicks. But my recent photos and listing my collection of 1950s whimsies and hats, with a little tweaking could easily make some great pulp fiction covers, don't you think?
I had a lot of fun on PicMonkey (again!) making these faux Noir covers, and I'm taking part of Teal Tuesday today, and getting inspired by all the lovely chatter amongst patterns for Shiny T Tuesday at Flight Living Platform.
Ok, I'm back to the grindstone, listing for the shops, and trying to earn my keep. Happy Tuesday, peeps!

Oh Bravo, bravo! These are brilliant.
Santa Diablo -- !Mamacita!
I picked up some great pulps the last time I was at Powell's in PDX. So lurid.
I've been enjoying these hat shots. Looks like you're having fun with it!
I finally found the negs of me in my 1978 hat designs -- will post once I get my neg-converter/digitizer gadget.
Cute covers. And thanks, Bella, for the t-shirt and homemade card I received today. Very sweet of you to remember me.
fabulous! "She looked like trouble. Then again, I like trouble." : >
I love them ALL!!!
Tee hee! Santa Diablo is my favourite!
These covers are so cool. Well done.
Love it. You did such a good job. Had to laugh. They really make you want to see the movie or read the book.
You should offer your services as book cover designer.
I love your posters! You should definitely use those in your Etsy shop - and for Rosebud magazine.
And thanks for mentioning Teal Tuesday. I had seen it somewhere and couldn't remember where. Fortunately I already have my teal outfit post!
Fantastic idea! You do belong on the cover of a magazine. Fun idea Bella!
You make a brilliant femme fatal. Can we do a Noir Heroine day? You'd be completely glam, packin' a piece in your garter and sipping a Gimlet. Icey eyed through the veil of you hat, of course.
These are so cool. It would be neat to have prints of these enlarged for your house.
Love these! They look like the real thing. Wouldn't that be a great gift for a friend's birthday?
Brilliant, Bella! I especially got a kick out of the last one. Gotta love Film Noir!
way cool. I need to try this picmonkey thing.
Keep them coming. Very glamorous and compelling.
Oh my gosh Bella, thank you so much for the Teal Tuesday mention and incredible participation. I absolutely love the teal hat and your words on the photo. You look incredible. Isn't teal beautiful? You definitely brought us luck. Thank you again for your support. This means so much to me.
These are the most creative things!!! They are just like the covers I see on the vintage rack at the Bookstore...good job!! Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com
Being inspire be watching film noir flicks is a cool thing already and then looking so darn cool on your photos is the best part of it!
I'm all about la Santa Diablo and the fact that instead of a miracle he got her!
Wonderful my dear! You have a true gift for styling theses shots... what a fabulous way to show your pieces! I am truly inspired!!
I love your magazine covers, and these ones are particularly inspired ("He prayed for a miracle but got her instead"!). I have a little crush on the teal with the feathers and netting!
wouuaa!, awesome and funny covers, absolutely pulp-fictioned!, and you look fabulously mysterious and pretty!, love that Santa Diablo story, really fascinating!
besos & pulp
How COOL are these???? I am impressed with your graphic skillz!!
Hello gorgeous! I love each and every one of your covers, amazing stuff and perfect to showcase your smouldering cover girl glamour!
Yep - I'm with Emmalina on your "smouldering cover girl glamour".
Now I want to read your version of these pulp fiction tales too...
they're all great but I especially love the last one!
These are so cool! What a fabulous idea! My favourite hat has to be the teal one :)
These noir-style covers are beautiful, Bella. You look amazing. And deadlier than the male! xxx
Oh! These are so brilliant and fun! I found myself formulating stories past your covers. :)
This post is bloomin' brilliant! Great concept, imagination, creativity!!!! so inspired :)
OOOOH, you are gorgeous in all your guises!!! Makes me actually want to read one of those books!! XXOO
Oh, I love this idea, as I have some sort of perverse and undeniable love for pulp fiction covers, third wave feminist that I am. I may steal your idea, but I will certainly point folks back to your post! That teal feathered topper is divine.
