Rat City Rukkus Car Show 2016

Yesterday I was joined by my friend, SpiderElla and we made our way over to the annual Rat City Rukkus car show. The wind was out of control for the first half of the day and brought with it a chilly breeze. I, as usual, did not dress for the day and was chilly for most of the day.

We met up with a couple of SpiderElla's friends who were working a booth and spent a lot of time hanging with them. Sadly, I didn't really get any pictures of the cars as we were having too much fun chatting away.

We were able to make a loop through the car show and take a look at the amazing rods. The parking lot was full of hot rods, rat rods, and bikes. Listened to some rockin' bands and watched the pinup contest. Met the guys from Vegas Rat Rods on Discovery. I totally wanted to bang flirt with Steve Darnell from the show, but he had no interest in me, so I guess I'll have to go back to stalking fangirling lusting admiring Seth MacFarlane. We even spotted Pee Wee riding around on his bike! Ha ha!

Here are the small amount of photos from the day! Enjoy!

Lost in the 50's Spring Car Show 2016!

What's up, DudeBros!

I absolutely love car show season! Taking a look at everyone's cars that they put so much pride and work into makes me happy. Taking pictures of these cars makes me happy. Seeing the people just enjoying a casual outing makes me happy. It all just makes me happy!

I almost didn't make it to this show today! My friend, whom I was originally supposed to attend with, had a friend visiting and had to cancel. Luckily for me, my pal, Ricardo Montalbum likes muscle cars and enjoys car shows as well!

We arrived later than I had hoped -- but caught the very tail end of the pinup show when the winners were announced. I'm friends with the judges, Darby Fox and Sarah Vamp so I chatted with them after the contest for a bit and Darby introduced me to the winner, Ronnie von Sweets. I also ran into some other pinup pals of mine, Dee Dee Cupcake, Sydney Sparkles (The Aussie Plus Size Barbie), & Synthia Sterling. I even ran into a gal that recognized me from The Fedora Lounge! Hah! Can you believe that?!

Ricardo and I were only there for a couple of hours but we had a lot of fun! Took some pictures which makes me want a real camera more than ever as my camera phone doesn't quite cut it when it comes to the artistic direction of car photos. Not to mention, I can't see the screen when it's so bright out, so my car photos aren't even composed nicely.

We listened a bit to King vs Cash before heading out as the sun had drained me of my energy.

I am including a photo I took of my hair after I returned home as the sun wasn't as bright and my hair wasn't being blown out in the photos.

Do the Poodle! OOTD HOTD

Sometimes when you are trying to get pictures of your OOTD and HOTD, you just have to cheese it up!!

I decided to sport the "Betty Grable Poodle" today after seeing nothing but poodle dos in a vintage hair group for the past 2 weeks. I haven't worn my hair this way in many years -- not since I last filmed my how I do tutorial. It was slightly more difficult this time around as my hair is shorter. I had to MacGyver it with a ponytail! I added the detachable bow from my Arthelia's Attic navy snood for the final Betty Grable touch!

If you want to see how I make this look happen, check out my 2 part tutorial!
