Many apologies for my recent disappearance from the blog but I've been occupied with unrelated issues and haven't had the time to tend to my little Pumpkin baby. To write on the blog also requires inspiration and I haven't had much of that lately and to post stuff just to do it - without real passion - I'd rather not. Worry not because I am not going through any personal crisis or anything like that - no suicidal tendencies here, thank God - just chilling...and rolling with my homies. I will be returning slowly to posting very soon, OK? Hugs & kisses!! PM

This week, the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will present “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” (May 7 through Sept. 1), which spotlights more than 500 ensembles—from sportswear to haute couture to film costumes—that reflect a heroic ideal.
On yesterday's The New York Times Sunday Styles Magazine photographer Raymond Meier and Brazilian supermodel Caroline Trentini displayed an array of super-powered looks inspired by the exhibition. They created fun ficticious superheroes that are ready to fight for fashion victims everywhere - if not one themselves.
KUNOICHI All her life, Kunoichi heard that only men can be ninjas. But when her naïve parents inadvertently ran afoul of the Japanese mob, the time had come to put her years of secret training to use.
MORAY When a family’s boat capsizes in rough seas, an infant survives — thanks to eerily glowing coral on the ocean floor. The baby grows up to be Moray, the protector of all sea creatures, including sushi.
INSECTA A scientist at a pest-control lab is accidentally exposed to lethal aerosols, enabling her to now communicate with the vermin (men?) she once devoted her life to destroying.
ABSOLUTE ZERO She came to 2008 on a vital mission — to prevent a catastrophic war. Absolute Zero knows her ability to stop time will be critical ... if her amnesia can be cured.
LE RENARD As a little girl, Le Renard would always sabotage her father’s weekend hunts. Her reward from Mother Earth was a mystic totem that grants her the cunning and heightened senses of a fox.
CIRCUIT BREAKER Lights! Camera! Disaster! A horrific accident on the set of a low-budget flick turned a B-actress into Circuit Breaker, who uses her electrical powers to fight pushy publicists, casting-couch directors and ill-conceived superhero adaptations.
SURREPTITIOUS Instead of being irked by classmates describing her as a wallflower, Surreptitious embraced it. She used her smarts to fashion material that allows her to literally blend into shadows. It’ll take her investigative journalism career far.

Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio gracing the June 2008 cover of UK's Arena Magazine. The Victoria Secret's Angel is dubbed "The Body From Brazil" on the mag's cover line and I am sure anyone can see why. I hear she is pregnant right now.
