Perfect Pinup Kara Kurves Leads with Confidence

It is always a delight to meet positive and sincere women, like Kara Kurves. Even though she is relatively new to Pinup and modeling, she is no stranger to finding confidence and embracing her Pinup community. I got the chance to catch up with Kara about her journey so far!

 

November: Kara Kurves

How long have you been into Pinup and Vintage?
“I’ve been interested in pinup culture since high school, but I’ve officially been doing pinup modeling for about a year and a half.”

Tell us about your very first shoot: Were you nervous? What did you think of yourself as a Pinup? Do you still get nervous?
“My very first shoot was with Victor Devilbliss and I was nervous as could be. I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do and felt like a big toad sitting on a log, but Michael and Nicole made me feel much better by the end of the shoot. When I got home and looked at my photos I was totally impressed. I looked great; it was a total confidence booster. I still get nervous sometimes, especially if I’m working with a new photographer, but I’m definitely more confident in what I’m doing.”

How has your journey as a Pinup gal been so far?
“My journey into the pinup world has been AMAZING! I’ve met some of the most wonderful people and made tons of friends. We frequently use the term “pinup family” and that is what we are. Everyone has each other’s back and is super supportive. I know I have become a better version of myself just by being a part of this community.”

When the bullies and the naysayers try to get you down, how do you handle them?
“I try to handle any negativity I get by turning it into positive energy. If someone says something that hurts me I just try and move on. My time is better spent complimenting and lifting up others, than dwelling on what one or two people think.”

Any final thoughts to share with other aspiring Pinups?
“I just want to say, go and get out there, dive in head first. Pinup is one of the most inclusive communities there around. You are bound to find support and encouragement. If I can put my big tush out there any one can and always remember confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear.”
