VOGOFF LOCKDOWN 2020 Magazine

It's here. The new VOGOFF.
LOCKDOWN Edition 2020
122 pages FREE!
SOLD OUT!!

My friend says: 
"It's like Vogue had a baby with Monty Python"


VOGOFF is 122 pages of the whimsy, wit, and weirdness of women of a certain age living under lockdown. Art, photos, articles - so much stuff and nonsense. 

Launched in 2012, VOGOFF is renowned for its highest standards of baselessness among discerning immature people (40+). 

LAUGH! - the Mayo Clinic says it's good for you.

Below is the pdf. <<Sorry, this is no longer available>>

Special thanks to Sarah @farkingdelightful on Instagram for the work she did helping me get this together and to Shelley, Forest City Fashionista @fcfashionista, for her ongoing support of VOGOFF. And thanks to everyone who joined this time. You guys are awesome!

<<SORRY, SOLD OUT!!>>
Now you can also purchase a PRINT VERSION of this issue from the publisher, Blurb, who will ship it to you direct. It's $27.99 (Cdn) or about $21 US, plus shipping. This is the publisher's fee plus $1 for me to help with the next issue. I chose the best paper and cover so it feels deeeeluxe. Hahaha.

  1. Wow, this is a feast of entertainment for our covid secluded, recluded, deluded world! It's going to take me some time to look at all this - time is something I have plenty of. Brilliant, Mel!

  2. Oh my, it's a feast beyond all measure. And I have all the time in the world to enjoy every morsel. It definitely needs to go on the news stands for a big price, bay-bee. Maybe by subscription? I'm in. And you are out of this world, Mel. Woo-hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    1. I've never had a better partner for wing-walking than you, Pao. A big price would be wonderful. And subscriptions, yeeeeah-ah. We need a sponsor!! If you know anyone, please send him/her my way. I'd love to do a new issue. This one is sold out. Heh. Thanks for your incredible contribution. Priceless.

  3. Hahahahaha! LOVED this! So many pieces stood out, the wing walking, the power helmuts (truly this IS a great idea!), the soil sofa, the pug on PU (hello cutie!), the exercise routine and then Dr. Slumptz getting caught off guard by selfie paparazzi, pickle in a ditch (why didn't I think of that?) no wonder you stay so thin...you're eating electric pineapples. And those fierce murder hags! My new shoe hoarding heros.

    I want a herpes hat and some maraschino boots.

    So fun seeing the REAL Judith, binging on popcorn and Netflix. Haha! I'll be calling Spacegal Spiffy and her sidekick the next time I need help which will probably be after I've graduated up to practicing Whirling Diva and slammed myself into several walls.

    This was delightful! Thanks for putting a huge smile on my face this morning! This is your best issue ever.

    1. Thanks for your support, Shelley, through this whole process. You are such an amazing friend. Your contribution was perfect and summed up the cartoonish/alien situation we all find ourselves in. With the help of SpaceGal Spiffy and Spacekitty Sylvester, we shall prevail!

  12. Omg, this is amazing! It's a fashion magazine zine!! And apparently there are other issues that had somehow escaped me. I bow down to your absurdist, avant garde brilliance. :-)

    1. I'm not bad at absurd - it's real life that perplexes. Heh. Thanks for checking out all of these issues!!

      PS too bad my menopause is over. Would have loved to make money with a power helmet.

      Delete
    3. I'm glad you liked it, Greetje! We have similar tastes in humour I think. That power helmet is genius, right!! I don't suppose if I put an antenna on my bike helmet it would work...

  17. Loved it all, but mostly the fact that almost all the articles included someone drinking adult beverages! To excess!!! Makes me feel less alone. lol

    1. Hahaha!! I hadn't realized. And even if the beverages were not visible, their effect is always evident in the content. You are never alone, darling!

  19. I bought three copies of it in real physical print, and they are GORGEOUS, Mel, You done good. I've got a spread and am tootin' about it on today's post, plus I stole your picture and put it in the sidebar so I can have it forever and love it and hug it and call it George.

    I still have your Yam magazines. When we can safely visit, I'll bring them! For now, masks on, baby.
