The 2015 Classics Museum Pinup Calendar launch party …
Following this post, although somewhat (OK, massively!) belatedly, I thought I’d give you a little rundown on how much fun the calendar launch party was!
There was a pretty big build-up to the night to be honest; we’d had the shoot waaaaay back in April and although we’d seen “teasers” of our individual images, none of us had actually seen the final edit, so I for one, was neeerrrrvvvvouuusss!
On the afternoon of the launch party, I did my hair; put on my frock and did my makeup – complete with the requisite winged eyeliner and red lippy, and headed off to the Classics Museum where the launch was being held.
I met a friend there and we pottered around upstairs for a while before heading down to the diner to be greeted with our individual pictures on A3 posters!!! Mine was a bit of a shock actually, as it wasn’t the image we’d all agreed on, but after the initial shock wore off, I really like my image (thank goodness!)
Here is my gorgeous friend Monique (who incidentally, was the cover girl) and her stunning June Carter-inspired pic. Isn’t she a babe?!
There was food and drinks and speeches and fabulous entertainment provided by Monique’s boyfriend Sam, of The Southern Diplomats. There was also lots of wonderful swing dancing going on … oh, how I wish I could dance like that!
At this point in my little rundown, I’d like to mention the talented and beautiful Tiffany Curtis, who was the brains and the photographer behind this second edition of the Classics Museum Pinup Calendar. I was amazed at what she created from the raw photographs she took; not that they were bad in any way, but the editing process turned out some absolutely gorgeous images and Tiffany should be so proud of herself – well done Tiffany.
After the formalities and the speeches and the dancing (!) the “calendar girls” snuck off into the museum itself and had some group shots taken by Tony of Handcrafted Stories, which was heaps of fun … I especially love this one below where we are all just being damm silly!
So all in all, it was a fabulous evening and I’m so proud to have been a part of the calendar. Like every woman, I look at the photo and see things I don’t like about myself, but I figure that in ten years time I’m going to look back at it with much more appreciative eyes!
