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.

A coat made of real mountain goat skin just asks to be spiced up with a pair of cost-nothing handyman gloves (7 EEK = 0.5€ (yes, 50 euro cents); Eve never buys gloves that cost more than 10EEK) , a horse shaped pedestrian reflector and a plastic bag of foreign origin.

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.

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.

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.

If you have gray beard and a fur hat, don't hesitate to boost up your style with a handmade walking stick. This old chap reminds me of super sympa old men from fairytales. Respect. Photo by Elo Kuuste. Taken in Tartu (Annelinn area), 5 March 2008.

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.

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.

Xmas can be heavy so makeup comes in handy. Reminds me a quote from the film The Dead Mountaineer Hotel (1979): "Are you saying that our robots are too human?" Photo by Rosin (Kass Ting) in the bar Levist Väljas (Out of Range), Tallinn, December 2008
