It has been a while since we didn’t mention Burlesque on the Sama Gazette and we had to do something about it. So here is a great news for any Burlesque lover: for its fourth year, BurlyCon will be held in Seattle the weekend of October 20-23.

Les aventures extraordinaires d’Adele Blanc-Sec

If you live in France, there is no way you could not know Les aventures extraordinaires d’Adele Blanc-Sec opens today. Louise Bourgoin (playing Adèle Blanc-Sec) and Luc Besson are on every channel, promoting the film. Even Max Dana posted about it on her Blog; so we had to add our small contribution to the buzz for our dear Sama Readers living abroad and who may not already know about the last movie produced by EuropaCorp. The plot (from IMDb): ...


Neverend Clocks by Dan Funderburgh at Furni

Our Twitter friends @coolhunting published an article on their website about Kitsune Noir, Dan Funderbergh and Furni‘s subversively modern take on the cuckoo clock. We also read the news on Kitsune Noir’s blog and when we saw the retro/classic Bavarian cuckoo clock style of the Neverend Clocks, we thought: ‘It would be perfect to hang on the walls of the Sama Gazette!’ Here are the details about the Neverend Clocks: – ...


iVictrola, iPhone Phonograph by Matt Richmond

We were browsing the Internet (not that our daily job exclusively constists in browsing the Internet but we actually spend a lot of time browsing the Internet…), and the iVictrola – iPhone Phonograph caught our attention for many reasons. The first one is because the design looks a lot like one of the Sama sculpture produced last year by Max Dana. The second reason is because the ‘concept’ is close to one Max is currently working ...

Gothic-style skull clutch by Alexander McQueen

English fashion designer Alexander McQueen is very creative. When we saw the photo of the skull clutch, we (2 of us actually) immediatly thought: ‘This clutch is great, it could make a great gift to someone we know very well’. We suppose you guess about whom we are talking about. Max Dana has been working at her atelier lately and we didn’t have the occasion to show her the skull clutch yet, so we thought it could be a good idea ...


Onyx Skull Ring by Wendy Brandes

Whether you’re into jewelry or not, sometimes you can fall for a ring. On a totally different style from the Milly Carnivora created by Victoire de Castellane for Christian Dior we presented you this Summer, the Onyx Skull Ring created by Wendy Brandes is awesome and we know someone who will be very interested by this kind of dark onyx jewelry when she will read this post… Ring description: One-of-a-kind, hand-made 18K ring with large onyx ...


Burlesque Magazine with Kalani Kokonuts

It’s Saturday and we couldn’t leave you until next week without sharing with you a crucial information: a member of the Sama Team had the chance to see Dita Von Teese‘s show at The Casino de Paris last week. We already talked about this rendezvous: Dita Von Teese ‘Queen of Burlesque’ in Paris!, and this Sama Team member really enjoyed the night, in every way… But if you’re still unaware about the Burlesque thing we are ...
