Celeste Giuliano's Pin-up Peep Show Is Back By Popular Demand on Sunday, Nov. 18

Celste Giuliano's Pin-up Peep Show is back by popular demand! This year help us celebrate the release of the 2013 PINUPS FOR PITBULLS Calendar,which was photographed entirely by Celeste Giuliano Photography. We will also be raising money for PINUPS FOR PITBULLS with raffles and part of the ticket sales going to help support their worthy cause.

The Pin-up Peep Show will be held on Sunday, November 18, 2012 at the Trocodero Theater, 1003 Arch Street in Philadelphia. Doors will open at 7pm. Tickets cost $16 in advance and $18 at the door. To order your tickets in advance visit or they can be purchased in person at the Trocodaro Box Office. This is a 21+ event.

Inspired by the cabarets and supper clubs from the 30's and 40's and shows like BOARDWALK EMPIRE, this years Pin-up Peep Show will feature much more than burlesque.  Joining some of Philly's finest burley-q performers on stage will be DREW NUGENT & THE MIDNIGHT SOCIETY, whose "red hot" jazz will keep the guys and dolls swinging on the dance floor.  The nights event will be hosted by the glamourous Candy Mayhem.

Back again to help celebrate will be SAILOR JERRY, a company synonymous with the art of the pin-up.  Sailor Jerry will be on hand with complimentary samplings of their rum and classic drink specials all night long.  Also, joining the festivities and handing out prizes to some lovely ladies will be Philadelphia's brand new retro addition, BETTIE PAGE CLOTHING and Best of Philly's own MALENA'S VINTAGE BOUTIQUE from West Chester, Pa.

Also, to further celebrate the timeless beauties of that era, Celeste Giuliano is proud to present the first official Miss Pin-up Philadelphia Pageant!  10 finalists will display their vintage fashion and knowledge to a panel of judges, who include JESSICA LYNN GAHRING from TLC's NYINK and DORON PETERSON from Sticky Fingers Bakery and Food Network's Cupcake Wars at this year's Pin-up Peepshow.  The winner will not only be crowned Miss Pin-up Philadelphia 2013, but also will receive a photo shoot with Celeste, a spread in RETRO LOVELY MAGAZINE and be featured on a billboard for THE OLD SLED WORKS.

Ladies, whether your entering the Pageant or not, come to the Peepshow dressed in your best pin-up attire for your chance to win a $100 gift certificate to MALENA'S VINTAGE BOUTIQUE!
So, join us as we raise money for PINUPS FOR PITBULLS by turning back the clock and filling the Trocadero with beautiful pin-up girls, hot burlesque acts, swinging jazz and retro cocktails. Please visit

Brand New Behind The Scenes Video

As many of you know, here at CGP we love recreating original pinup illustrations - especially those from Gil Elvgren! These recreations take a ton of prep work with all the planning and set building as well as a lot of post work in the computer.

Recently, we had one of our regular clients Samantha schedule a photo shoot to recreate one of her favorite Elvgren paintings, "Cold Feet." On hand during the shoot to capture each and every moment was the talented Josh Coyne of Mr. Robot Mouse and I am delighted to share the video with you!

More videos are on the way so be sure to subscribe to the Celeste Giuliano Photography YouTube Channel! We are redefining the term boob tube!
