Amber Joy's Pinup Pageant!

Last month I got to take part in the 1st Annual Pin Up Pageant put on by Amber Joy's Vintage Closet.

Unfortunately, I asked to host a bit too late, but I was happy that Amber found an active role for me as the Raffle Girl. :) Simply stating, I sold the raffle tickets and picked the tickets. Although I was the raffle girl, I did steal the microphone away from the host a few times. Sorry Scott!

I really had a blast and was honored to be part of such an amazing event that drew in 250 people and 20 pinup girls in the actual contest.

Celebrity Judges; Tom Ingram (Viva Las Vegas),  Cleen Rock One (Inkmasters), Cha Cha Velour (Live Burlesque in Las Vegas), Jasmine of Vintage Vandalizm, Dusty Summers (Burlesque Legend)
I was supposed to wear my Burlesque costume, but sadly couldn't find part of it, so I ended up just wearing a dress I had made a few years go. Even though I had brought heels to change into, I completely forgot about them and ended up staying in my jellies all night -- something my back was happy with. Plus the neon green actually matches the chartreuse in the print perfectly! Much better than trying to match the two different blues from the dress and my heels.

I have no idea why this face... perhaps I am super excited to be photographed with Tom Ingram...
Proprietress, Amber Burkhart, held her cool and looked beautiful through the night, though I know she was highly overwhelmed by taking on such a task of putting on her first pinup pageant! It's a lot more work than just showing up!

All the gals were gorgeous and were such a treat to watch as they both nervously and confidently strutted their stuff on the catwalk. Here are just a few of the pinups!

Congratulations to all the contestants and winners!

Thank you again, Amber, for having me part of your team for this truly spectacular event!

Perhaps I should enter next year with this winning Pinup Pose!
