Rise of the Furkini – Part II – summer fantasy fun


Rise of the Furkini – Part II – summer fantasy fun

I’ve gotten so many great recommendations for add-ons to my original post, I decided to do an additional post on the subject. Thanks to all of you from Vintage Dinosaur Pictures Group, and the Ray Harryhausen Group on Facebook!

Rachel Welch made the Furkini famous in 1967’s epic dinosaur and caveman movie, One Million Years BC. Through the years there have been many variations on the famous wear and plenty of damsels to done the outfit and strut their stuff. Here’s a look at some Furkini, Animal Pattern, and Suede Bikini wearing bathing beauties and warrior women through the years.

My Top 5 Women in Sci-Fi flicks of yesteryear

 (films 25 years and older)

5) Space Vampire – Lifeforce (1985) – Mathilda May
She’s deadly, but what a way to go. She walks around naked through most of the film.

4) Ellen – It Came from Outer Space (1953) – Barbara Rush
Babara’s innocent, natural beauty struck me even as a young lad.

3) Lisa – Weird Science (1985) – Kelly LeBroch
Two high school nerds create the perfect fantasy woman. What teenage boy didn’t want to be them?

2) Kay – Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) – Julie Adams
Growing up watching all those 50’s sci-fi/horror flicks on TV, this film had to be the first time I noticed a beautiful woman in a bathing suit.

1) Nova – Planet of the Apes/Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1968) – Linda Harrison
Stuck on a planet ruled by apes? Linda Harrison’s, Nova, made it all bearable.

Honorable mention:
Jessica – Logan’s Run (1976) – Jennifer Agutter
Yeah, this film had one of Charlie’s Angels in it, but it was the wide-eyed charm of Jennifer Agutter that kept me watching.

I didn’t include dinosaur or fantasy films; I will have a separate post for that genre.
