HADLEIGH women Tiziana Stupia and Angela Thrower took a walk on the dark side when they draped themselves in gothic gowns and posed for this spooky picture as the brides of Dracula.

The snap is earmarked to be the cover page of the town's 2002 charity calendar, which is based around a theme of 1950s Hollywood stars.

A millennium edition featuring some of Hadleigh's finest workmen dressed to impress in only their birthday suits raised thousands of pounds for charity last year – as well as a few eyebrows – and hopes are high that the eye catching 2002 calendar will match the success.

Student Tiziana, 29, owns her own record company on Hadleigh High Street, Misanthropy Records, where pal Angela, 31, works and as well as posing as cover girls the devilish duo are spearheading this year's project.

"It started off as a joke in the pub. Angela said we should really do a new one and then we started looking around for people who would be suitable to appear," said Tiziana.

The 12 page calendar will feature largely men from the town posing as bygone film greats such as James Dean. Marlon Brando and Humphrey Bogart but still-on-the-scene stars including Robert De Niro are also tipped to make an appearance.

Rico Gusman, a talented photographer who has done commercial work for Marks and Spencer and Sainsburys, has agreed to participate in the new project and Hadleigh residents have pulled together to help get the project off the ground.

Hadleigh Tyres even loaned out a original 1950s Porsche for the Marlon Brando, Street Car Named Desire, shoot.

Companies can sponsor a calendar page for £150 – the company name will be mentioned on the page and an advertisement placed on the back of the calendar. Sponsors are also free to suggest which charities they would like to see supported.

Between 1,000 and 2,000 calendars will be printed in classy black and white format with a glossy cover. The calendar will be available priced £5 at shops and newsagents across Suffolk in time for Christmas.
