Influences

Welcome to the “Influences” section. As its name implies, this is a collection of images that have influenced the images we create and the ideas we have here at waist.it. Most of our influences have now been included in this section, in pictorial form. However, this is a work in progress and there may still be some errors and omissions. Please also take a few moments to read the important copyright notice at the bottom of this page.


Julie Newmar, born 1933-08-16, is an American actress, dancer and singer. Her most famous role is Catwoman in the Batman television series. She was born in Los Angeles as Julia Chalene Newmeyer, the eldest of three children born to Don and Helen (née Jesmer) Newmeyer. Her father was head of the Physical Education Department at Los Angeles City College and had played American football professionally in the 1920s with the Los Angeles Buccaneers of the first American Football League. Her brother is John Newmeyer, Harvard Ph.D, a San Francisco-based epidemiologist, author, and Napa Valley winemaker.

Newmar was a "dancer-assassin" in Slaves of Babylon (1953) and the "gilded girl" in Serpent of the Nile (1953), in which she was clad in gold paint. She danced in several other films, including The Band Wagon and Demetrius and the Gladiators, and was a ballerina with the Los Angeles Opera. She also worked as a choreographer and dancer for Universal Studios.

Here at waist.it we admire her for the stunning pin-up images that she posed for. These have influenced and inspired quite a few of our images. More information:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_Newmar
