Make me a banner - win something!

So since I'm not well gifted on the graphic design part and I decided to change my blog's style into a more simple version, I would like to ask you for a favor.

If someone is interested in spending some time making graphic design for fun, let me know (or just do it without telling me) and you can make me a banner! You can contact me through the comment box or through e-mail (info (a) oliviarouge.com)

I might even turn this out to be a competition.. and well you might guess what you will be getting as a prize? Something from my web boutique of course!

So since many of you might be now wondering, what to make, what do I like and so on, here is a little list of things from which you could pick out some elements for the banner.

- cats (well duh)
- Rocking horses / Carousel Horses
- pretty much anything that has to do with 1940's and 1950's
- diamonds
- feathers
- high heels
- cupcakes
- Leopard print (mhihih!)
- Old photos & vintage look on things (read: old paper and stuff)
- vintage wallpapers

Anyway the list could go on forever, but here are just few ideas. You could also add my photo to it if that is what you feel like. Just let me know if you find something nice from my website or from facebook and I could try and find the right size for you :)

And may this competition be due to July 10th!

(And seriously, if no one will participate to this competition, I will move to the countryside alone, stop this blog and get a house full of cats and die alone. YES THAT'S RIGHT! Pathetic? Very much.)

Ps. All of you who already have something from my web boutique, don't forget the other competition!

Let me be your fruit!


I'm performing here in two weeks and can't wait! I heard that the first Kokonut Kult event "Taboo" was a success, so here's hoping that this one will be too! The event is held in a pretty new restaurant in Helsinki, Kokomo, which is a Tiki inspired restaurant/bar. At the moment Tiki is very inspiring thing to me and I'm hoping to get some more inspiration from the bar to make our balcony a bit more Tiki inspired (at the moment it's inspired by.. nothing).

Anyway here are the lovely performers who are shaking with me in Fruit bowl as well as other info!

Exotic beauty and tropical treats are brought to you by Olivia Rouge, Gigi Praline, Honey Pomelo, Kitty Lit Ter, GoldDust, Rudie Ruthless & Titania Hill as well as Kokonut Kult priestess's Kiki Hawaiji & Bettie Blackheart.

Hot shaking tunes served by Ismo Laakso Psychoboogie Explosion feat. Petri Bäckström & DJ Mr. Atom of Finland.

+ Also amazing fruitcarving competition, judged by the"ice ice baby" Bent van der Bleu.

Tickets in advance 9 euros from Tiketti >
http://www.tiketti.fi/tapahtuma/11520
Tickets from the door 10 euros.


If you want to have dinner in Kokomo before the club, please reserve table beforehand - the restaurant is super busy!
Ticket to the burlesque club has to be bought in advance or from the door, no exceptions.
Doors to the club open 8 pm.



I will post some photos of our trip to USA at some point.. now I don't have the time or the inspiration since there are just way too many pictures taken!
