The Pinup Platoon:
Miss Pixie Dust
In association with Moxie Mama Wear and Pinned on You, 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 2016 finalists, together with some other exciting content on the days where it’s not a contestant interview day.
AND … we have a competition where you can win not one, not two, but THREE fabulous prizes … to find out all about it, see the details at the end of this interview with the wonderful Miss Pixie Dust.
Soon … without further ado; meet the second gorgeous pinup in our Pinup Platoon – Miss Pinup NZ Finalist for 2016:
Miss Pixie Dust …
Tell me something interesting about yourself most people won’t already know.
A: I have a big scar on my left leg from a hip operation in my early 20s – I sometimes tell people it’s from falling off my motocross bike because it sounds much more sassy!
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: High-waisted nana knickers! If they could talk they’d say “Remember to always wear clean ones – you could be getting into an accident, and you know, paramedics have enough on their plate as it is!”
(Oh, my nana actually used to say that too!!!)
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’m the mistress of procrastination, and I also believe in just being yourself – so the majority of my outfits will probably already be in my closet, and my talent will hopefully reflect some of the wit and sense of humour that was passed on to me by my grandmother!
If you could pick a theme song to walk onto the Miss Pinup stage to, what would it be?
A: I found myself thinking about the beautiful songs and grace of Edith Piaf, but they would perhaps be more suited to the final bow!
The sass and cheek of Nancy Sinatra’s “These boots are made for walking” won in the end!
I think most of us have had times in our lives where someone did not treat us the way we deserve to be treated and this song kind of reminds me that the best revenge is to live life with a spring in your step and your head held high!
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’m quite into the idea of a flashmob and celebrating with my friends, but firstly, I’d probably pass out with all the excitement and shock!!!
Although, this could also happen during the talent round! If I do, please refrain from drawing moustaches on me and posting clips of my breakdown on YouTube!
What is your most favourite item in your pinup kit, and why?
A: My pocket mirror because it has saved me from lipstick on teeth faux pas many of times. It also reminds me gently that I should really start using eye cream!!
And last, but certainly not least …
What are you most hoping to get out of the Miss Pinup NZ 2015 experience?
A: Oh, I can think of so many things!!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime “bucket list” kind of experience. What a hoot!! I’ve already gained so much, simply by being part of the pinup community – I’ve made new friends who have become like family to me (which means a lot as I’m the only one of my family who immigrated to New Zealand 12 years ago.)
Overall, this experience is another way of bringing fun and balance into my life (which is mostly dedicated to walking alongside people who have suffered trauma, or generally have had a rough ride in life,) allowing my expressive side to shine, and celebrating being one in a tribe of magnificent people who share a love for bygone eras.
I’m hoping to sprinkle a bit of pixie dust wherever I go, and hopefully, I can empower others to try new things, and to seek out good and supportive people. It makes life’s curveballs much more bearable!
I’m also soooooo excited to meet the other gorgeous finalists, and to finally be able to hug some of the lovelies who have only been social media friends so far.
