Joyeux anniversaire cher/chère compatriote :)
Yes, happy birthday, Tourdivoire!
i know rookie is made primarily by girls and for girls… but i love seeing boys on this blog too!
I <3 this…especially 4, 9, 12-15, 16, 18 (and everything else) :]
HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my dreamz
Amazing! Love the sunglasses!
Loving the guys as girls and girls as guys vibe!
love the gender bending and androgyny y’all!
Wow, these are magical! Love this concept. Wonderful work, Petra!
Petra, you’ve done it again… I can honestly say you’re the photographer of my dreamsssssssssss
Petra’s work is always stunning! This reminds me a bit of Twin Sister’s video for “All Around & Away We Go”.
oh my god, I saw this on my phone at first and the app I use to follow blogs never loads the captions of photos in slideshows. it kind of makes it nice for rookie photoshoots because exactly what the photos are of and who took them is a surprise later on. but this is definitely the biggest surprise I’ve got yet! haha. I did not even think for a second those were guys. they make lovely models.
also, I want those bedazzled sunglasses and daisy earrings on the guy who shows up first in photo 2 so badly. while I’m at it, I would also like a projector in my room so I can make everything rainbow-swirly like in photo 6. a girl can dream.
ooh, those are petra’s sunglasses! I hadn’t seen all the captions when I commented. that does not surprise me.
I LOVE THIS! So awesome! The projections are wounderful and the gender bending is great! It’s reminds me of one of my ideas for a future fashion show. Have all the guys model the girl stuff and all the girls as guys! I’m really happy. Thanks!
This is amazing!! All of the photos are so beautiful. And I need those sunglasses. All of them.
Fantastic photos! I love #4!
Aw man I submitted these to you
before you made that that casting call for models and again when you did. I wish you you had sent a quick note to say that you were thinking something similar.
hey! could you re send that email – I’ve been super backed up with ardorous submissions and haven’t opened any in a while. sorry for the confusion. ps they look beautiful.
Thanks Petra :)
I just re-sent, to both submissions@rookie and your @petracollins address.

These photos strangely remind me of Karen Beth, (if her songs were remixed for the discotecque)@MushroomsAreGoth.blogspot
here’s a video of her song (it’s a sad song)
thanks petra ~
oh, this is so freakin’ good, petra is brilliant!
Petra, you are a genius!
These are all so beautiful. I love the colours.
Everyone is so stunning in this! LOVE.
these are beautiful!
These photos are so phsycadelic and pretty! I love them!
Petra, I was thinking of making a zine and I want to do an article about you and how cool your photos are. Can I use some of these in it? And some from your website? I don’t know what the rules are for zines but I thought since you’re the one who takes the photos I should ask you?
gorgeous :), I love the psychedelia of it all :)
