DAILY MAIL: Between 1957 and 1981 Casilli became one of the most prolific photographers for Playboy magazine, shooting no fewer than 57 Playmates, countless other pictorials and several covers. He even persuaded Barbara Streisand to pose in her underwear. The lensman was given key card #2 to Playboy’s legendary chain of clubs; #1 being reserved for the magazine’s boss, Hugh Hefner. During the 1980s Casilli began shooting the most high profile TV and music stars in America, capturing the excess, the glamour and decadence of the decade through its most flamboyant household names.
Leslie Jordan made me touch his fuzzy eyeglass frames (that he received from the American Horror Story set) and when I did… he giggled like a dirty little boy.
Julie Andrews introduces Katharine Hepburn and Company in COCO on the 1970 Tonys. Totally ridiculous… no french accent and stunningly awful dialogue… but the whole “Bob Mackie/ Carol Burnett Show” style fashion show is what it’s all about!

Create your own episode of the Golden Girls or re-enact an existing one with this replica miniature of Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia’s Miami house.
After watching several thousand hours of the show over 20 years, I created this 1:72 scale playset. The model took me a few weeks to design and then a few days to build. It is 100% handmade and designed with a close eye to detail.
The set includes: Front Entry, Furnished Living Room, Furnished Kitchen, Bedroom hall, and a cheesecake. There are plenty of Easter Eggs for the die-hard fans to find!
- Sophia’s bamboo purse in the living room
- Rose’s painting of St. Olaf from Season 5 “All Bets Off”
- Open the kitchen cabinet to find Dorothy’s bike helmet from Season 6 “There Goes the Bride”
- Blanche’s Commemorative Citrus Festival Ball Plate (glued back together) from Season 5 “Ebb Tide”
- Look for the deck of cards Rose used with Gene in Season 2 “Isn’t it Romantic?”
- Rose’s “R” Cups from Season 5 “72 Hours”
- Rose’s Teddy Bear Fernando from Season 3, “Old Friends”
- Baggie of Egg Yolks from Season 5 “Sick and Tired”
- and of course, a cheesecake from, well… almost every episode
Use it as a display model or play along with the TV. I took great care to make the model as accurate as possible. The paintings on the walls are the same as those on the show. (Keep in mind that things changed between seasons so the model is seasons 3 through 5 accurate
Includes the 4 girls in small paper standees (approx. 1 inch tall).
