Brettie Page likes things hot: hot yoga, hot jazz, hot coffee, and hot cars. She’s on the dance floor lindy hopping, surfing the waves, or sweating it out on her yoga mat when she’s not teaching. Brettie’s collected vintage clothing from the 1920s-1950s for decades. She strives to embody the eras’ style, from her wardrobe, hair, and makeup, to the ‘52 Chevy pickup in her garage, and the vintage O’Keefe Merritt stove that churns out blue-ribbon pies. She once scared off a bad guy with her Grandma’s rolling pin! Brettie’s a passionate advocate for women, children, and education. She promotes vintage style, not vintage values. Brettie volunteers as a union negotiator and recently raised $30K for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society honor of a student.

Raised in arguably the definition of small town, USA, Miss Lisa Frankenstein spent a good deal of her youth admiring the vintage scene and longing for the confidence to dress up and partake. However, as she soon found out, her small town in the Midwest wasn’t the best for cultivating a prime pinup wardrobe. It wasn’t until her mid-twenties and several moves across the country later that she purchased a floral swing dress on a whim and never looked back.
Lisa was drawn to the pinup lifestyle not only because of the beautiful clothing, but because the community is one of acceptance. She loves that pinup looks great on any body size, shape, gender, or age. She loves the feeling that dressing up gives her, and that it celebrates her body type.
Currently, Lisa is living overseas in Yokosuka, Japan.

My name is Maribel Ortega but I go by Midnight Muñeca. This month I am graduating with a BA in Liberal Studies from California State University Monterey Bay. Currently, I work as a substitute teacher in special education and I hope to continue working in special education after I graduate. I am an aspiring writer and I am working on being published for the very first time in the fall. My writing draws upon my experiences growing up as a Chicana feminist. I love volunteering, working with kids, and all things vintage. I love the pin-up community because it empowers women to feel strong and beautiful no matter what. I am very excited to be participating in my second pin-up competition ever and so blessed to be moving on with so many beautiful ladies.

My name is Rachel Maier, I'm 30 years young living the good life on the western slope of Colorado. I'm the mother of two young cuties 3, and 6, and wife to a talented tattoo artist! My roots in the Pinup world began in 2008 in Ventura, CA (where I used to live) where I fell in love with the culture, the music, the Pinup aesthetic, and all the fun times that come with it. Yes, once a Cali girl always a Cali girl. I've worked as a professional freelance makeup artist and hairstylist in Colorado for 7 years, doing work for special occasions, photoshoots, and the occasional industry job that comes around. More recently I've added certified Microblading Artist to my resume and have been loving it! One thing not a lot of people know about me is I teach ballet for a nonprofit arts program, Weehawken Arts Creative, in my community.

Miss Siren Sin
I was raised on country music and riding horses. I love classic cars and especially classic trucks! I fell into the car show scene at the age of 18 while modeling for a friend, and I was hooked! Soon after, I slowly started to discover the pinup culture and fell madly in love with everything about it! I studied the looks, the makeup, and learned how to do my own vintage hairstyles. I am still constantly learning and mastering my skills for hairstyles and modeling. These days you can either find me at a car show, baking, hanging out with my husband and our two pups or in the gym lifting weights!
