In association with Erstwilder, Mumpty is running a feature entitled The Pinup Platoon during the month of March.  The Pinup Platoon features interviews with all ten Miss Pinup NZ 2015 finalists, together with some other exciting content on the off-days. AND … we have a fabulous competition where you can win one of two highly-sought-after and now sold out, Erstwilder Flamboyant Flamingo Fair necklaces – to find out all about it, see the details at the end of this interview with the fabulous Miss Lorelei Louise.

Sooooo … without further ado; meet the next gorgeous pinup in The Pinup Platoon – Miss Pinup NZ Finalist for 2015:

Question one:
Tell me something interesting about yourself most people won’t already know.
A:  That’s a tough one!  To fulfil both the “interesting” and “most people won’t know” part anyway!  When I finished school, I was runner-up Dux. And yes there were more than two people in my year!

I have a perfect heart shaped freckle on the top of my left breast.  

I met my husband whilst skinny dipping in a river!

Question two:
Think about your favourite outfit; your favourite pair of shoes; your favourite suspender belt … whatever!  If that particular item in your pinup kit could talk, what story do you think it would be most likely to tell?
A:  Well my fave item would probably be one of my Rago waist cinchers!  Good foundations make a great outfit.  

It would be far too difficult to pick one favourite dress or one pair of shoes!  And anyway, I’d hope they were better at keeping secrets haha!  

My cincher would probably say “Why wasn’t I brought into this world as a lovely pair of stockings?  All I do is work until near breaking point and for what?  I never get to see any of the interesting stuff!!”

Question three:
How is your preparation for the Miss Pinup NZ competition coming along?  Would you like to offer our readers any “teasers” with regard to your particular talent or your outfits for Miss Pinup NZ?
A:  I am enjoying putting together my ensembles for Miss Pinup, as styling and sourcing items for a special outfit is one of my favourite things!  And I’m only going to say that all of my outfits have a key theme – you’ll have to find out on the day.

Talent-wise, you can expect to see the character and my alter ego Miss Lorelei Louise take the stage … you were introduced to her in my entry video, and she will have something special and entertaining to share … is that teasing enough!?

Question four:
If you could pick a theme song to walk onto the Miss Pinup stage to, what would it be?
A:  “Dynamite” by Tami Neilson.

Question five:
If  you were to win Miss Pinup NZ 2015, how would you most likely celebrate your win from the options below:

a) I’d guzzle champagne through a gold-plated straw and get lightheaded and dizzy with all my friends.
b) Crank up the music and dance like crazy.
c) Enlist a flashmob and dance through the streets wearing your Miss Pinup NZ crown.
d) Take your crown on a road trip, Instagramming your antics all the way!
e) Go to a karaoke bar and sing your own praises.
f) Other (please specify!)
A:  I think a) sounds the most in character for me!  There would definitely be plenty of champagne and fun with friends… definitely not with a gold-plated (or otherwise!) straw; probably no guzzling (I am a lady after all!) … perhaps some drinking out of the bottle though (not TOO much of a lady!)

Question six:
What is your most favourite item in your pinup kit, and why?
A:  Favourite?  Or most necessary!  Favourite would definitely be lipstick – any one of the bold and bright colours I love!  But the item I would not leave the house without is a good BB cream … moisturiser, sunscreen and a hint of cover all in one.  Brilliant, and some days, all I wear!

And last, but certainly not least …

Question seven:
What are you most hoping to get out of the Miss Pinup NZ 2015 experience?
A:  Well I’m hoping to win, of course! Haha.

No really, just being a part of the finals is amazing, it really will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience in so many ways!

In a time in my life where I am looking for focus and a new direction, I couldn’t ask for a better opportunity.  I am excited to get the chance to really show what I can do, and to challenge myself to learn and do new things.

I also think it’s pretty awesome that I know and am friends with so many of the other finalists … it will be so much FUN!
