These are beautiful. Instead of looking like a hippie, the guy here looks more like cousin IT of the Addams Family. Either way, these are pretty incredible with amazing finish to them and perfect coloring.

This is amazing but the big question is, where would you carry this? I can’t imagine breaking this out at parties. Maybe when they were first manufactured as half naked women in the 70’s were all the rage, at least products featuring their images were. I wasn’t old enough to appreciate a product like this back then but I love them now and would proudly display this in my home. I’d also carry it around! This gorgeous gal is made of plastic.

Lovely Libby! I remember seeing products like this when I would sneak into the adult section of “Spencer Gifts”. While I was in the room I did try her out and pulled down her skirt but thank god she was empty.

I can relate to the swinger part but I’m not sure about carrying around a glass filed with liquor, dangling from my neck! I still love this kitsch! It’s what’s happening but I don’t know if it’s whats practical…..

This androgynous hippie lamp makes me swoon (a word a snatched from Allee). I just think it’s hysterical to come across such amazing kitsch at “Willis Wonderland” that stops me dead in my tracks. This lamp did just that.

    Some of my favorite things in my collection are in this post. The hippie and flower child liquor bottles for one. Any self-respecting hippie or flower child I knew were sucking on something in the 60’s but it sure wasn’t a whiskey bottle which is what these likenesses are. https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2009/06/22/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-hippe-flower-child-lets-toast-peace-liquor-bottles/

    The coloring of the Buson Buddy nude girl flask is really fantastic in the right light. I love her little panty lines too. https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2010/03/22/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-busom-buddie-flask/

    Libby The Liberated Lady is a really fantastic piece of 70’s Woman’s Lib memorabilia. You can see her in action in one of my kitsch videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0laodRkWGZA

    I have several different models of The Swinger Glass. This is the most practical one though as the bottom of it is flat and you can set it down when you take it off and it stays upright. https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2009/03/27/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-the-swinger-glass/

    I absolutely LOVE the hippie lamp in the last photo. But I don’t agree that it’s androgynous. Check out his little package.

    Yikes. I’m learning to examine things more closely, like I should have done in describing his crotch. He’s pretty well endowed actually. I must have focused in on the make up.

    These are all beyond words, and incredible artifacts as well, of a very vibrant time in history. Libby the Liberated Lady is a true gem. I’m almost afraid to ask, but when you pull down her skirt, what’s supposed to happen?
