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 Lady in Red.
Soooo … without further ado; meet the eighth gorgeous pinup in our Pinup Platoon – Miss Pinup NZ Finalist for 2016:
Lady in Red …
Tell me something interesting about yourself most people won’t already know.
A: For most of my childhood I grew up on a farm and was a show jumper with my gorgeous pony, My Red Knight.
I remember getting up on Sunday’s with Mum at 4am to go riding. McDonald’s hot chocolates and hash browns was a breakfast tradition!
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 treasured Straitjacket would probably sing all of the rock songs I’ve ever performed while wearing it and my very first red pinup wiggle dress that I got from a second-hand store in Newmarket would boast about how it introduced me to the beautiful world of Pinup and Vintage culture!
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: Hmm well I’ve got the main part of my outfits ready so now for the fun part of accessorising!
As for the talent section, I will be performing an old favourite of mine. 😉
If you could pick a theme song to walk onto the Miss Pinup stage to, what would it be?
A: Rebel Rebel by David Bowie and Cherry Bomb by The Runaways would be a sure way to have some fun, which is what it’s all about!
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: Definitely A and B … give me champagne, music and a pinup crown and I would be one happy lady!
What is your most favourite item in your pinup kit, and why?
A: Ooh definitely my Kat Von D eyeliner pen – as long as I have my wings, I can take on the day!
And last, but certainly not least …
What are you most hoping to get out of the Miss Pinup NZ 2015 experience?
A: To get to know all of these gorgeous and inspiring pinup ladies is something that I will forever treasure.
The open-mindedness and passion for creativity amongst the pinup culture is something I so admire and couldn’t imagine life without.
I definitely plan to collaborate with many of the pinups, photographers and stylists etc that I’ll meet through Miss Pinup NZ and become an avid part of pinup in NZ – and one day, maybe even worldwide!
