Re: Air Hostesses

Very strange! No sign of my other posting for today?? Perhaps I'd better tone it down a little...

No, they were mass-produced in 2005 but I think they were a fairly limited series and disappeared off the shelves quickly. I believe they are made of resin and they still turm up from time to time on eBay and the likes. They used to be stocked by a number of aviation hobby shops, especially in Asia but they were sold out before I discovered them. Don't know if ANA offered them to PAX or not.



I think the sculptures are great and I have a soft spot for animé - must hark back to my Speed Racer, Prince Planet and Gigantor days!

The alternative post: This one has a late 70's feel to it.

Penultimate in the ANA series

This is the penultimate post in this mini-series highlighting the evolution of All Nippon Airways hostess uniforms.

ANA 1990.



IMO that's a sweet-lookin' uniform!

Final Post ANA Air Hostess Collection

Today is the finale for the ANA Air Hostess Uniform Collection.



The last of the series was a pair of dolls, each wearing the ANA 2005 uniform with differing neckerchiefs.







It is hardly surprising that air hostesses have become the subject of dolls - they were truly glamorous role models for generations of young girls and they would make a thread in their own right. I will revisit the theme from time to time. We return to normal scheduling tomorrow...

Re: Air Hostesses

Hey Doc? If they are ANA dolls, why don't they look Asian?

That's the Animé style!

Well, it's late after the Australian Open Mens Final... perhaps it's time to slip into some "Mile High" Air Hostess pyjamas?

Re: Air Hostesses

Airlines have been using pictures of their air hostesses from the very beginning to advertise their companies. Indeed, the quality of the inflight service was a very major selling point before the introduction of low cost carriers. United had pics from the early 1930's, but it didn't just stop with advertising airlines. The glamour factor made stewardesses very popular to advertise and endorse all manner of products (as I will show you over the next few weeks).

Today, some retro KLM ads.
