Back from the Orion - Black Shift and Knee High Boots

I've rewatched "Raumpatrouille - Die fantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffs Orion" ("Space Patroul - The fantastic adventures of the starship Orion") not too long ago, which prompted this look. Yes, sometimes I like to play dress up when I am getting dressed up. Deep inside I'll always be the nerdy, geeky, awesome girl that wants to end up on a spaceship, no matter how much style polish I put on top.

The series isn't available in english I think, it's from the late 60ies and was in black & white. The methods used to create the special effects are quite curious. Curious but also genius, like filming the dissolution of alka seltzer with the camera turned over to get the effect of rising water bubbles and some of the props where simple everyday objects like a steaming iron, the latter being still a running gag some 50 years later.

Sadly I didn't have long enough hair to recreate the most awesome hair-do all the female protagonists sported.

Mi sono riguardata Le avventure dell'astronave Orion non molto tempo fa, il che ha ispirato questo look. Si a volte mi piace giocare a vestirmi mentre mi sto vestendo. Dentro di me sarò sempre la ragazza impacciata e fantastica che vuole viaggiare su una nave spaziale, non importa quanto stile indosso al di sopra.

La serie è degli anni '60 in bianco e nero e i metodi usati per gli effetti speciali erano alquanto curiosi, come per esempio riprendere le alka seltzer che si scioglievano e alcuni oggetti di scena erano semplici oggetti di uso quotidiano, come il ferro da stiro.

Sfortunatamente non ho i capelli abbastanza lunghi per ricreare le splendide pettinature sfoggiate da tutte le donne protagoniste.

Letztens habe ich mir mal wieder "Raumpatrouille - Die fantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffs Orion" angesehen. Das Ganze hat dann die Inspiration fuer diesen Look geliefert. Ja, ab und an gefaellt es mir beim Ankleiden Verkleiden zu spielen. Tief drinnen werde ich wohl immer das nerdy, geeky* und fantastische Maedchen  sein, das sich auf einem Raumschiff wiederfinden moechte, egal welchen Stil ich obendrauf packe.

Die Serie ist aus den 60ern, wurde in schwarz-weiss gedreht und hatte die sonderbarsten Methoden um die Spezialeffekte zu erzeugen. Sonderbar aber auch irgendwie genial. So wurde das Aufloesen von Alka Seltzer auf dem Kopf gedreht um aufsteigende Wasserblasen zu erzeugen. Ausserdem wurden gewoehnliche Alltags- und Haushaltsgegenstaende eingesetzt, wie z.B. das elektrische Buegeleisen, was auch 50 Jahre spaeter noch ein Running Gag ist.

Leider habe ich nicht die noetige Haarlaenge und -fuelle um die Superfrisur, die alle weiblichen Charaktere hatten, nachzumachen.

P.S. It wasn't as warm as it is now, hence the tights didn't bother me.
