Pinup of the week: Miss Katie

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 15 - 2018

I think I’ve always identified with pin ups, I think as a kid I always thought they were so beautiful and not like the images I saw in magazines.

I live in the dry dry oil patch called Hobbs NM.

I’ve worked for a Dance Studio for almost 6 years now and it’s been my dream job I love it so much, I work another job in merchandise during the day to help cover bills. I think I got into pin up when I needed something, it’s helped me bring through more self confidence and self assurance as well as bring me and a few of my girlfriends closer, they let me do their hair and make up and we play dress up and take pictures, its fun. I hope pin up will always be a part of my life.

Pinup of the week: Miss Tamika Marie

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 8 - 2018

My name is Tamika Marie.

I’m from southern Germany and love vintage style, mermaiding and all things Disney. I am biracial and growing up, I struggled with finding my identity. I never really felt like I fit in. I looked so different from both sides of my family. My mom introduced me to classic film musicals and I always loved the style of clothes the women wore. Especially in the 1940s and 50s. Now I love dressing in the vintage style and feel like I have come into my own and gained a lot of confidence.

Pinup of the week: Miss Bibi

Posted by Dee-Ann On July - 30 - 2018

Photographer: James Berry

My uniqueness as a mom, wife and teacher just in a few words shows my sweet and sassy side like a 1950’s red Chevy with red and white interior riding along in South Florida. So being a girl from the hot city of Miami of beautiful bright colors and historic locations. Finding the pinup community in South Florida gave me the chance to express my old soul for vintage and natural beauty. I have been in the pinup community for about five years and learning everyday about myself and embracing the uniqueness of the 50’s. I didn’t decide one day “hey I want to start to dress like a girl from the 50’s”. As a child my mother always told me I had an old soul and love dressing like Audrey Hepburn and Carmen Miranda (just two of the many woman I admire), but I embraced the style behind the beauty of these women into my own unique style and sass. Being a pinup mom has not changed the way I parent because my boys are free spirited, enjoy life, old music and fast cars just like their momma. Being a mom, a wife, teacher and pinup is the best gift I have received and it all comes together like the sweet topping on a delicious peach cobbler eating on a warm sunny day.

Pinup of the week: Lelah May Hula

Photography: Andreas Koch of @nolapus

As a New Orleanian, I have adopted a vintage, retro, rockabilly style that is right at home in a city that loves traditional jazz music, swing dancing, blues, and rock’n’roll.

I have been dancing with a group called the Nola Chorus Girls for five years, and we perform at local venues, festivals, and our many, many parades for all occasions. We wear original vintage-inspired costumes and dance to jazz and swing standards as performed by wonderful local musicians. I started hula hooping five years ago, as well, and while I’m not the most skilled, I am a pretty good hoop dancer with a few tricks up my sleeve (or around my waist, I guess!)

My name is Sarah Jane. I am a healthcare professional specializing in Gerontology and, currently, going for my Master’s at USC. I hope to one day become a vital part of the elder community and produce change and hope for our aging population. I’m a single mother of a 2-yr old rockstar named Dax and love all extreme outdoor activities. Hiking, running, backpacking, camping, white-water rafting, ziplining…you name it! When I’m not going getting my blood rushing, I love to sit down and read a good book and cook a good meal with some reggaeton, country, blues or rockabilly on blast.

Pinup has always been a soft spot for me and I find everything about it beautiful and creative.Every woman has the right to feel mysterious, sexy, seductive and classy.

Pinup of the week: Miss Christine

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 23 - 2017
My name is Christine Leanne Wood.  I just turned 36 in August. I have recently discovered the world of pinups and rockabilly. I have fallen head over heals for this lifestyle. I am a Property Manager in commercial real estate during the week.  When I am not working I seek thrilling adventures. I love motorcycle rides, fast rods, art, road trips, dancing and anything vintage/old hollywood. My main squeeze is music.  I am learning to play my Fender Strat and write song lyrics.  
I took the advice of a friend and did my first pin up shoot.  This was to be a project to build my confidence and bring healing after a traumatic event in my life.  In July of 2016 I suffered a brutal attack.  I sustained multiple injuries and was held hostage for 6 hours.  I almost lost my life that day. It has taken alot of healing but I have found strength in the process. Everyday I am grateful to be alive and for every moment. My plan is to find my purpose, to live my life to the fullest and never be afraid to take chances. Life is beautiful and I will embrace it.

Hi!

My name is Maggie Leroux. You might know me as the stage kitten of the International Burlesque Circus, the Amsterdam Burlesque Awards, the Burlesque Kingdom or many other great burlesque events in The Netherlands.

In 2013 I attended my very first burlesque show and from that moment on I knew this was the world I wanted to be part of. Intrigued by this seductive and mysterious world I started dance lessons at Flora Gattina’s Amsterdam School of Burlesque. It felt like I found my home.
