passing of a pantyhose legend – model Adrianne

May 5, 2012 under News

One of our pantyhose legends, Adrianne, has passed away at the age of 36.

I regret to say that in February of 2012 our online pantyhose community has lost a legend, model Adrianne.

“I am the open bird cage, I am the free bird; living in the moment and loving life.” - that was what she wrote about herself on her Facebook page.  Sadly, this intelligent young woman was only 36 when she departed for the better world.

Her modeling career started in late 1990’s, just after first internet browsers appeared.  She was one of the first pantyhose teaser models on the web and she left a big impression on many.

There were a lot of people who liked her, not only for her beauty and her genuine love for pantyhose, but for her approachable sunny personality.

“As I recall she was a very sweet and outgoing person”, says Sirchristo on the pantyhose forum.  Erik, another member of our community, highlights her easy-going character – “Every time I conversed with her she was really nice and friendly.”

Adrianne was originally from Massachusetts, but she resided in Indiana.  She loved animals, especially horses, and horseback riding was her favourite sport.  Adrianne’s intellect shines through her interest in Reiki healing and in spiritual books mentioned on her Facebook page.

“It’s a beautiful day for Pantyhose!”  – that was a wonderful tag line on Adrianne’s Facebook page to greet the world.  May our community remember her for her modeling contributions and her open and cheerful personality.  She lives on in the memories of many – smart, beautiful, and friendly.

    Looks like Herald Times and Indiana newspaper took down the article. It still shows up in the google search, but it’s no longer there. There is an article here:

    Adrianne was only 1 day away from her Birthday.

    This just breaks my heart. She was so beautiful and had gorgeous legs and feet, especially in pantyhose. She will be missed.

  • I will miss her, she was really my first find in searching internet pantyhose around 1996.

  • Rob says:

    Very nice article. A truly lovely lady, and very friendly. Hers was the very FIRST pantyhose site I signed onto. Truly a pioneer and true artist in her field. I will definitely miss her.

    • admin says:

      I feel sad that this happened, if only she’d get out of that relationship earlier, her mental health could still be OK.

  • MacDuff says:

    Wow, I just read about this today. What a horrible tragedy, I am very sorry to hear that Adrianne is gone. She was the first pantyhose model I stumbled across when I begin looking on the internet and was always my favorite. I purchased memberships onto many different sites on and off over the years but hers was always a constant. We traded several emails over the years and she always seemed very sweet she even wore an outfit I requested for a photo shoot one time.

    What a horrible, horrible situation, I only hope that she has found peace.

  • GeneralZod says:

  • Arturo Power says:

    Une étoile s’en est allée …… Quel dommage ….

    Elle était si belle et c’était l’égérie du Collant

    Truly tragic, such a beautiful woman…

  • jim says:

    this woman MURDERED her boyfriend. that is not a sweet little angel. you guys are so quick to blame the boyfriend but she is the one who chose him. if he was a dick, that’s what she liked. that doesn’t justify her going psycho and shooting him. any one of your girlfriends could do the same to you, and all they’d have to say is that you were mean to her, and she walks free.

    • admin says:

      Yes, Jim, you have a point. We’ll never know exactly what happened. For sure mental illness has something to do with this, no woman in her right mind would go a head and do such a thing.

      I try to remember people by the good that they did. She contributed a lot to the pantyhose community.

    You may not believe this, but I just heard about this recently. I used the internet from 1997 to 2001, then quit, being the rebel that I am. Then I tried the internet again from 2003 to 2005, and decided it was too idle a use of my time, looking at THE perfect legs of all time, for instance. I am on the internet again, due to the fact that it is required for my daughter’s school work. I tell you this because a gentleman earlier said Adrianne’s site was always a constant for him, but in my case, it was an “always go-back-to” site. In the 90′s, her videos and shoots sometimes included her husband, and I always appreciated that this man would share this beautiful flower with the world. I actually pondered if I could do that. Now, I wonder if it is disrespectful to look at her images. Help. I am so bummed….

    • admin says:

      Hi, Sean, I am so sad that you are just finding it about this.
      I think that it’s OK to look at her photos, but you’ll probably not get the same effect knowing that she is no longer with us. Her work was part of who she was and it touched many people, got them to open up about what they liked. I think that she did a lot to help people with a leg fetish or nylon fetish feel like they are not alone. It’s amazing.

  • general zod says:

    i just discovered this beautiful woman. I don’t mean to sound insensitive, can i acquire any of her galleries from any of you? full galleries preferably?
    she was absolutely stunning what became of her is a shame.
