Burlesque and the Art of the Teese / Fetish and the Art of the Teese
Promotional Poster (Signed)
46cm x 64cm
These promotional posters were sometimes given out, and signed by Dita Von Teese, during book signings for Burlesque and the Art of the Teese. I bought this one recently from a memorabilia seller in London. It’s too large to scan; the first image was provided by the seller. The second is just a digital copy of the promotional collage that was floating around online at the time of the book’s release.

Sean McCall has done an extensive amount of work with Dita Von Teese since the mid 1990′s. Dita, Erotic Fantasies Volume 1 released just a portion of it. Many of the photo sets from this era are scattered online. Some are available to members of dita.net in high resolution, as well as more recent sets by McCall. These are from just one set, found on a vintage erotica message board. I hope to post more selections from Dita and McCall’s early collaborations, these are just a couple which many of you mightn’t have seen.
Burlesque Tattoo Talk with Pin-Up Dita Von Teese
Sexy Tattoo Tips for Men
By Jodie Michalak, About.com Guide
Dita Von Teese likes a little drama. Whether it be standing up against the wall getting shaved by a straight-edged razor or tattooing a pink bunny on an ex’s leg, she’s a bit of a freak although she won’t express it with body art or modification.
Dita Von Teese appreciates tattoos but admits she’d never get one. Although at one time she begged for a star on her cheek, she instead opted for a single inked beauty mark tattoo.
Unless you count the signature marking that’s defined the pin-up beauty’s iconic look, the only art Dita wears is that of seduction.
Getting ready to launch her Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray tour across the world while fronting her very own cosmetic collection for ArtDeco, the best dressed pin-up hangs up her G-strings for just a minute to talk sexy. Tattoos that is.

Collector’s Weekly: Va-Va-Voom Vintage: Dita Von Teese on Burlesque, Fast Cars, and Old Lingerie

Dita Von Teese wears her status as “America’s most famous stripper” with pride. But to vintage hounds, the 39-year-old burlesque superstar is not just a pretty lady who takes off her clothes, but the epitome of true Old Hollywood glamour. Credited with pioneering the neo-burlesque revival in the early 1990s, she incorporates nostalgia into every aspect of her life. She dresses head-to-toe vintage style, drives classic cars, and fills her home up with antiques, in “mainly a mix of Art Deco meets Hollywood Regency with a dash of Victorian style.”

Dita Von Teese, the world’s best-known burlesque star, is perched on an armchair. She is sitting elegantly upright, her feet tucked to one side, and the train of her green couture dress is swirled around the bottom of the chair — on to a real tigerskin throw. Her hair is posed in smooth curls around her shoulders and her lips are a kissable scarlet bow. She always looks like this. Never is there a paparazzi picture, or any other evidence, of the mortal Dita these days. However, she was born human, back in the days when she was plain old Heather Renée Sweet.
An Interview with Fetish Phenomenon Dita Von Teese
October 19, 2006
Being successful in the alternative modeling industry takes more than just a pretty face; just ask Dita Von Teese. In her lengthy career as the world’s preeminent fetish icon, Dita has done more than just take a few stunning photos. Managing her self-made career for years, Dita cemented her reputation as a rising star in the alternative modeling world by networking with photographers and clothing designers, using the tools of self-promotion to her best advantage, and retaining the copyright to her photos as often as possible. Her career flourished due to both her unique persona and her inherent professionalism. In short order, Dita became retro fetish’s most recognizable face, appearing on magazine covers and at major fetish events such as the Skin Two Rubber Ball. While her more recent relationship with rocker Marilyn Manson and appearance in Playboy’s 2002 Christmas issue vaulted her into the mainstream for the first time, she is by no means an overnight success. In this article, Dita offers Wicked Talent members her insights on getting started in the alternative modeling industry, building a career, and staying safe.
