Corpsing is a winning trend amongst punk students in Tartu. Arrival of the spring brings us a variety of different presentations and corpsing styles indoors and outdoors. This is an example I happened to witness last May in Tartu. This person is silently protesting against the stupidity of the new alchohol sale law in Estonia.

Earpants and earshirt

Earrings are out! New trend is to wear shirt and underpants in your ear. Paper is a very handy material for almost anything. Photo by Rosin (Kass Ting) in KuKu culture club, Tallinn, 28 January 2009.

Nude Guest at Russian Embassy

Estonians have very warm feelings towards Russia so if we visit our XXL-sized neighbour's embassy we take off clothes and rub the body with blood, sorry, red paint. Especially the girl. Photo by Rosin (Kass Ting), 12 January 2009 in front our Russian embassy in Tallinn old town.

Blue Velvet? Not really

Come on baby light my Tallinn

Punk's not dead, punk's older than bread. How come that self made punk outfits are always provide more clash and glam than Prada or Pucci? The punk supermodel was spotted on the birthday of Estonian legendary punk band J.M.K.E. In the title I'm referring to yet another band, the Velikije Luki and their song of Estonian capital Tallinn going up in flames. Well, Jim Morrisson is involved as well.

Estonian Redneck Girl

Howdy-ho! Cheap city sluts float around all day in fashion outlets wearing Zara and dreaming of Dolce & Gabbana, real girls deal with a cartload of firewood. Not a real redneck though but a lovely redhead. Photo taken by anonymus contributer in 200? somewhere in Western Estonia.

Kill All Books!

A text shirt, in this case dedicated to the play "Pristan", is a very good info carrier. This particular shirt even includes notes and lyrics so you could sing (along to men on the stage). The first photo allows you to compare the shirt to the actual book. A book might contain more text, but it doesn't work well as an item of clothing or an advertisement.
Another bonus about the shirt is that sometimes you can find an actual person inside. Finally, you can make paper (new books) from an old t-shirt, but not the other way around. So no question about the heading. T-shirt-design & photo by Aapo Ilves.

You can see more t-shirt fashion cases here.

Tatoos are Complicated, Stamping's Easy

Take a stamp... and stamp yourself. Randomly, on your body, on your head or even on your private parts - or wherever you want - who cares, it looks cool.

Eyeshadow and Mascara to Fight Post Xmas Syndrome
