DEC, 2010 – Ever since I realized there was a resurgence in the vintage pin-ups of the WWII era (hey, whatdya know, war is good for something), I knew that I would eventually find a way to partake in the scene. The pin-up look is more than wardrobe. It’s hair, makeup, and setting. A perfect pin-up shoot embraces all of this like recreations of dark brunettes in diners or red lipsticked blondes saluting the soldiers.
I haven’t had the opportunity to do a full-on shoot with all the hair, makeup and scenery but I finally splurged on a dress and hair accessoryfrom PinUpGirlClothing.com and Betsey Johnson shoes from TJ Maxx. Artist Jay Fife loves to take photos that he can put in his reference vault. You never know when you’re going to get a commission for Bettie Page or Faye Wray. Babes and Monsters go together rather well.
