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 Mollie Tov.
Soooo … without further ado; meet the final gorgeous pinup in our Pinup Platoon for this year – Miss Pinup NZ Finalist for 2016:
Miss Mollie Tov …
Tell me something interesting about yourself most people won’t already know.
A: Something people don’t already know … ohhhh that’s a hard one as I’m pretty open about myself!
I think the biggest thing that will surprise people is that I am a mother – not many people realise this as I tend to keep my daughter away from the public spotlight.
She is my rock and my lifesaver and most of all my biggest inspiration. ❤ ❤
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: My favourite outfit … IF my favourite outfit could talk I think it would tell a story of strength and courage; a story about a woman who, when faced with rock bottom and losing everything, still found the strength to fight her inner demons and get up every morning – to put on her favourite outfits, do her hair and put on her lippie and face the world with a smile and determination to get back everything she had lost.
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: My preparation is coming along slowly … as for teasers, my outfits will be practical yet full of sass and very much me.
I have thought long and hard about each section and what I want to present to the world and I feel each outfit does exactly that. ❤ ❤
If you could pick a theme song to walk onto the Miss Pinup stage to, what would it be?
A: This is easy … my theme song is “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Little Richard – it’s a great upbeat tune.
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: Ummm how would I celebrate? Oooh … let’s see.
The first thing I would do is Skype my daughter with my crown on 🙂
Then I would take my crown road tripping, Instagramming it all the way, and end the road trip with a 50’s styled Prom in my home town (ideally to coincide with my birthday if it can be arranged! :p )
What is your most favourite item in your pinup kit, and why?
A: My Rago shape wear and Dita Von Teese Von Follies underwear are by far my favourite items in my pinup kit.
For me underwear sets the tone of the day … I love vintage underwear and vintage-inspired underwear – not only does it make me feel sexy and confident, it gives me an amazing silhouette to work with.
And last, but certainly not least …
What are you most hoping to get out of the Miss Pinup NZ 2015 experience?
A: Oohhhh I’m not sure how to put all my feeling into words.
I think the biggest thing I am wanting to get out of Miss Pinup New Zealand is the opportunity to inspire other pinups not only to go on this amazing journey, but to also become confident in themselves and shine brightly, as I feel there is not enough of this happening in the world.
