Last month I decided to enter another pinup contest at the last minute. Unfortunately I had just bought a SD card and taken the photos without knowing that it had to be formatted first (WTF KMART?!?). I finally bought a SD card reader so I was able to get these up. The theme was red, white and blue and I was having a hard time coming up with a good costume idea. Then I remembered that last Halloween I bought a few Lady Gaga costumes including the American Flag costume. So I paired the top and bandana from that with an 80s bathing suit, some red heels and a red, white and blue headband that I wore on the 4th of July. Voila!

This photo set was shot for the newest Pinup Lifestyle contest, “On The Phone”. Please go here or click on the first image to vote for my submission, “Call Me”. You can view the rest of the lovely entries here. Voting is open through February 27th.

I thought it would be really cute to wear these vintage longline underwear that I bought from Vintage Treasures Girl Boutique on eBay. I love how they were originally white but were dyed hot pink. After a couple of return trips to thrift stores I found an old phone to spray paint pink. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a really old phone but this worked in a pinch. It also wasn’t fully dry so I did get a little paint on myself but I didn’t edit it out of the photos because I thought that it looked kind of cool. You can view all of the full photos in the different photo effects in my Photobucket album.

I played my Best of Britney Spears CD that I made last year while I was posing. I listen to it often, it’s especially great for exercising too. I replicated most of it here except that I also have her song She’ll Never Be Me from her unreleased album Original Doll on my CD. You can find it on torrent sites.

Last month I bought a cheap tripod (so cool), headed to what was my favorite cemetery growing up and took some photos for the Pinup Lifestyle’s Dia de los Muertos Contest. Go here to learn more about the holiday. I always thought they were exaggerating during challenges on America’s Next Top Model, but alas they were right, it is more difficult to take photos outside. A lot of my pics were unusable because I was squinting or closing my eyes to avoid the wind. I forgot that they had moved the police station right down the street and worried I’d get in trouble when a cop car drove by but they didn’t stop. I imagined them chuckling and shaking their head. Hey, it’s got to be better than the teens who use the place to drink and then litter there at night, right? I could say that I hadn’t posted this because I was busy and hadn’t yet edited the photos but the truth is that I was bummed at losing another PUL contest. Most of the contests are so creative though that I feel like by not trying I am just hurting myself because I’m missing out on the neat photos I’ll end up with. The winner was this cool pic. Everyone else seemed to focus on close ups of their makeup. Mine was okay, not fantastic, I’m no makeup artist but my favorite pics of mine were not close up so I don’t think they would have had a better shot anyway. My first pic is the one I used as my submission. I’m into slideshows right now but if you want to see the regular, full size photos go here.

My d├ęcolletage isn't that light and my eyes aren't that color. Thanks Picnik for the vampire Halloween effects.

About the Makeup: First I did a Google image search to see what others had done to get ideas. Then I bought a cheap black and white Halloween makeup set, like this. I decided against using the black on my eyes because they are sensitive. I just used my own black eyeshadow by Revlon. It’s like this but it doesn’t have any glitter in it. Then I used a little green eyeshadow plus some awesome yellow Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow. There are different ways to do the lips for this. Most people either do the sewn shut look that I went for or the teeth look, which is too complex for me.

FYI: I got a great deal on this dress. It’s a bubble rose dress by Leola Couture which usually retails for $220 but was $12 at ideeli. I highly recommend going here and signing up for this free, members only, designer sale site.

I shot this series of fun vintage style pics for the current Pinup Lifestyle Calendar contest. You can go here to vote. I got this really cool bullet style bathing suit/romper from eBay over the summer. I even took a few with a Schlitz beer since it’s a ’60s style beer. I have so many shots that I liked that I’ve decided to just put a few pics up here and a slideshow. See the rest of them here: 60s Style, Cinema Style, Cross Process Style, Orton Style and Regular Style.
