Rock Ballarat Pin-up Competition

I’ve been a little quiet on social media and haven’t done a bog post since Christmas time. But a lot has been happening in between my full time job, moving hose and of course practising social distancing as well.

Something that happened early February was I entered my first ever pin-up competition.

I originally thought the competition would be more like a fashion parade where you wear a pin-up inspired or vintage unfit, parade on the stage and get judged that way. But I soon realised there was much more to a pin-up competition.

I entered the Rockabilly section of the Rock Ballarat pinup competition.

There was a lot of prep leading up to the competition, including some hair & makeup workshops, and figuring out what to do for my routine. The routine was to be under 3 minutes and I had to have at least 3 different poses help for at least 5 seconds. And of course I needed to choose my outfit.

It was very nerve racking leading up to the day. Originally I had planned to do a routine to a beach boys style cover of “Barbie Girl”. Obviously this makes sense when my pin-up name is Vintage Barbie! But I saw some videos of previous years and realised some one else had already done it.

So I came up with something a little different and did a routine to the long “Dream Lover”.

It wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do, but I am still glad I gave it a go. I really put myself out of my comfort zone by doing this competition, and I made some lovely new friends in the process.

Here are some photos from the weekend, including the Friday Night Tiki Party.
