The Pinup Platoon:
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 Opal.
Soon … without further ado; meet the ninth gorgeous pinup in our Pinup Platoon – Miss Pinup NZ Finalist for 2016:
Miss Opal …
Tell me something interesting about yourself most people won’t already know.
A: I have a weird obsession with the paranormal; I read a lot of horror stories and spend way too much time lurking the web for any “true experience” stories.
Although I’m a total non-believer and the closest thing I’ve ever come to having an experience was sleep paralysis, I want to believe 😉
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: Do you want the PG version or the R-rated? 😉 Hah just kidding! – but seriously I don’t have a cute or clever answer for this question!
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: It’s a total roller coaster ride that’s all I have to say!
I have some pretty cool tricks up my sleeve I think… but you’ll have to come check it out for yourself!
If you could pick a theme song to walk onto the Miss Pinup stage to, what would it be?
A: Hands down I would pick “Miami Horror – I look to you” ft. Kimbra.
I have no idea why but it was the first song I thought of when I read this question. It just feels right.
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: Knowing me I would start at A and progress to E with a little B in the middle!!
What is your most favourite item in your pinup kit, and why?
A: Liquid eye liner, I never leave the house without it!
And last, but certainly not least …
What are you most hoping to get out of the Miss Pinup NZ 2015 experience?
A: For me this is a personal challenge to overcome my social anxiety and boost my self-esteem. If I can do this I can do anything. ;o)
