Living as an 18th century Lolita

***EXCLUSIVE*** VIDEO AVAILABLE, HELSINKI, FINLAND: A 19-year-old woman from Finland who dresses in Lolita and Rococo fashion says that she’ll never be caught wearing something „basic”. Nea Viitamaa, who has been wearing the Japanese-inspired style for five years, says that she has spent around 10,000 on her look - but she does not regret it. She combines the girly Lolita style with an 18th Century „Rococo” fashion, which is distinct because of its corsets, big feathers, sleeves, ruffles and bows. Lolita is a Japanese fashion sub-culture which was born in 1990s Harajuku, Tokyo. It was originally associated with a feminist movement in Japan, which protested against traditional gender-norms. However nowadays, the Lolita style has become more mainstream and Nea says that she does not dress to make political statements. Nea was bullied for her style growing up, but she says she will continue to dress this way even when she’s old.

Woman, 21, reveals she was inspired by RuPaul's Drag Race to become a FEMALE drag queen - as she slams idea that the alter egos can only be portrayed by guys

***EXCLUSIVE*** ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA: This young woman wants to show that drag isn’t just for gay men after being inspired by RuPaul’s Drag Race to become a FEMALE DRAG QUEEN. Assistant manager, Parker (21) from Orlando, Florida, USA, had always been a fan of all things to do with theatre and makeup whilst growing up so when she first watched RuPaul’s Drag Race at 19 she was soon hooked on the magic of drag and started to explore how she could become a drag queen as a female. Taking inspiration from the hit television series, Parker started imitating the makeup of her favourite queens; Brian Michael Firkus’ Trixie Mattel and Matt James Lent’s Pearl Liaison but through Twitter she was introduced to other women who were into drag and she hasn’t let her gender hold her back from pursuing her passion. It can take Parker up to three-hours to transform into her fabulous alter-ego, Polly Amory, and she has recently started performing lip sync routines as part of her act.

The women whose looks are spoiled for their own protection: Indian tribe forces females to wear nose plugs to stop rivals from kidnapping them

***EXCLUSIVE*** INDIA: Stunning new photos exploring the primitive traditions of an ancient tribe who routinely perform animal sacrifice, worship the sun and the moon, and admit to kidnapping beautiful women have been unveiled in a new book. A vivid series of rare photographs has been released featuring women bearing deliberately disfiguring noseplugs and striking facial ’pig fat and soot’ tattoos, a stomach-turning glimpse of a terrified chicken seconds away from ritual sacrifice, and other curious cultural legacies  within the Apatani tribe in Ziro Valley, Arunachal Pradesh, India. Other incredible images in the photobook display the rudimentary tools of the Apatani people who still toil their land by hand, the tribe’s youngest generation who are shying away from the “outdated” practices of their elders, and the wrinkled, smiling faces of the tribe’s oldest residents, many of whom survive well into their 90s. These remarkable photos are the work of Palaniappan Subramanyam, who feels he may be among the last people to witness the tribe’s rustic traditions in action.

CrossFit lover 'was left paralyzed after having the flu jab' and had to re-learn how to walk again as doctors say her lungs would have failed if she wasn’t so fit

***EXCLUSIVE*** NEW YORK, USA: This crossfit lover became paralysed after having the FLU JAB, leaving her in INTENSIVE CARE before learning to walk again, but doctors warned that if her lungs weren’t as strong, they would have shut down. Substitute teacher, Amaris Carlin (27) from New York, USA, began training in CrossFit in July 2014 and soon fell in love with the challenge of making her body stronger. Amaris went from deadlifting 10kg to being able to lift 90kg as she continuously trained. In September 2017 Amaris had a flu jab after it was offered at her work. Eight hours later, she noticed that she had lost the feeling in one of her legs. Not wanting to panic, Amaris went to an urgent care centre where tests showed a notable loss of sensation in both legs. From there, Amaris was sent to the hospital but was turned away because they assumed she had pinched a nerve from CrossFit. When she returned home after being turned away, Amaris became increasingly tired and weaker by the day. Three days after being turned away from hospital, Amaris couldn’t even walk to her car and had to be carried by colleagues. It took doctors a few days to diagnose Amaris’ condition, but they ruled that Amaris was suffering from Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) as a result of the flu shot. GBS was the body’s way of fighting off the virus by attacking muscle and tissue within, leaving her paralysed from the waist down. Shortly after being admitted into hospital, Amaris was transferred to the ICU because she was having trouble breathing and needed to be put on an oxygen machine. Doctors began an IVIG treatment to stop GBS progressing further, as Amaris started having double vision after the muscles in her eyes became weak. Amaris spent nine days in the ICU, but doctors said that if she had weaker lungs, GBS would have shut her lungs down. At her worst, Amaris was experiencing a quarter of her usual lung function.

Fascinating book awash with nostalgic pictures charts the history of the cruise industry, from 19th century steam ships to today's luxury floating hotels

***EXCLUSIVE*** The origins of the cruise ship industry and the public’s love affair with it has been revealed in a new book. Incredible images featured in the book show P&O’s Ceylon which is said to be the first ever cruise, men and women relaxing on deck during an afternoon sailing to the Mediterranean onboard a Hamburg-America Line ship and passengers lying in specially erected canvas tanks filled with sea water before fitted swimming pools became common features.
