Hola Everyone! 
Dottie Devine 
Proudly wearing my official Bettie Page t-shirt!
!Feeling so inspired! 

Today was the first day of production on 'Bettie Page Reveals All!' custom suitcase. So the adventure begins! Myself and Mando sat down brain stormed our ideas on what wanted to create! But first things first!!!!  We had to decide what kind of suitcase we were going to be using on this very special project!  Believe it or not, there are many different suitcase styles & shapes. All unique and carry their very own personalities. For me, I'm very partial to 1940s suitcases!!! They are so square/boxy oh so very 'Film Noir'. I'm in luck because Mando is also a fan of square suitcases. For him, the shape allows for much breathing room when painting, lettering, pin striping and designing! So square shape it was! I love when things go my way! I am a woman after all! So our next step was to find the perfect square shaped suitcase in our inventory! Yes we have an actual inventory room. Which consist of very very very many suit/train/makeup/carry-on cases of all styles and from all eras! It was 10 minutes before we found our gem! A beautiful boxy square suitcase from the early 1950s! The inside was lined in beautiful satin blue. We ripped it out as we are going to reupholster the inside: Bettie style! 
Miss Page~ As we affectionately call this suitcase has some impressive measurements! 
            * 21 inches Length 
*14.5 Height
  *7 inches deep  

So off we started on Miss Page! For those who are not familiar with the process & techniques that Brown Magic Paint Co. takes in creating our custom cases you will soon find out! As we will be documenting all we are doing on this blog! 

Step 1
This is a very important & critical first step we ALWAYS take!!!! We want to lay a strong foundation for what is to be built!


Step 2
A fine bright metallic silver base paint is professionally & evenly sprayed on the entire case!  This process is very important! As to continue to lay a strong & lasting foundation of what is to come! I am so excited to say I helped in this process! Mando has been mentoring me for some time now~on all matters of paint! Which makes me happy because Mando studied & mentored under the one and only Roman Gomez of 
'Romans Exotic Customs '
From Las Vegas, Nevada!   

!Ta-da! Miss Page in all her shiny & silver glory!!!! I am excited to update you on the process as we continue! Keep check back very soon!!! 

Thank you all for the love & support! 
We are so happy & blessed to be apart of something so special! 

Con Mucho Amor,
