Will Grandma topple Gina? The clash of the pin-ups!

Gina Elise, star and creator of the Pin-Ups For Vets Calendar – look out!

There’s a new girl in town and she’s ready to take you on!

And she’s a lot LOT more than just a pretty face.


A tough lady, Super Mamika. Even if a little inexperienced.

Mamika’s a fighter.

But she’s a lover, too.

Are you up to the challenge, G-girl?


Okay, enough of the unrestrained testosterone. Here’s the story behind Super Mamika, as told by Eugene. She’s a truly remarkable woman.

A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn’t stop smiling.

Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. When asked how, Goldberger told us “she hid the Jewish people she knew, moving them around to different places every day.” As a survivor of Nazism and Communism, she then immigrated away from Hungary to France, forced by the Communist regime to leave her homeland illegally or face death.

Follow the link to read the full story. I recommend you do.

And Gina, take some encouragement from this unexpected contender. If Frederika’s any guide, you’ll still be a hot pin-up item when you’re 80.

Just don’t bite off

Gina Jaws

…more than you can chew.

UPDATE – Here is the direct link to Sacha Goldberger’s site. Prepare to be greeted by Grandma.


  1. Oh I dunno, Gina looks pretty damn special in that frock! Gotta say I do love how classy Mamika looks in those tights though….thinking I might have to get some like that for my 55th birthday 😉

    • Photos would be expected of such an event, you understand.

  2. my birthday is but a few weeks away…..every year halftone has to update the birthday images….

    • Something to look forward to!

  3. I’ll never look as tasty as Gina, but I’m in the running to match Mamika 😉

    • Check that front page in the photographer’s site – link in the update. You might have to run pretty hard!

  4. ouch! Well that’s me out of the picture. I guess I’ll have to retire my camera and move into a nursing home….

  5. Hi,
    LOL, I love it. good on her, she should be a hit. 🙂

    • Eugene’s post mentions some of the reactions to the photos. Someone left this:
      You’re the grandmother I always wanted. Will you adopt me?
