Perfect Pinup Miss Cherry Vixen is Empowered by Inclusion

One of South Australia’s pinup dolls has just won the title of Perfect Pinup July! Miss Cherry Vixen never gave up on herself, and always worked to encourage other pinups throughout the contest. She has been a part of the Perfect Pinup contests over the last few months, and it has been an extreme pleasure getting to see her true character and sweet nature shine through — and especially now, as I add her to the gallery of Perfect Pinups. Read on to learn a bit more about Miss Cherry Vixen!

Tell us about the Pinup and Vintage scene in Adelaide, and how you got involved.
“The pinup & vintage scene in Adelaide is a small but tight knit community. It’s always lovely to see familiar faces at different events. Everyone is very supportive & caring, I’ve met so many lovely people that I’m now blessed to call friends. I’ve always loved the vintage/rockabilly/pinup style, rock n roll music & everything else from the 50s.

After having major back surgery in 2011 I found myself in a slump about my weight, shape and ability, then one night I was scrolling through fb & came across a photoshoot through Pure Pinup & hubby told me to book it in. I was nervous as I’d never had a photoshoot before. I loved every minute. The realization hit me…. If I embrace what I love, all will fall into place & create happiness.”

What is your favorite aspect of being a Pinup girl?
“My favorite aspect of being a pinup girl is that I can encourage others confidence simply by embracing what I love.”

What has been your favorite shoot so far? Do you have any “dream” shoots you hope to accomplish?
“My favorite shoot so far would have to be the private shoot with Peter Brounette of Pure Pinup. He pushed me to step out of my comfort zone modelling retro lingere in a tasteful pinup way. Which in turn has helped in other shoots. My dream shoot is to be in vintage/rockabilly baseball gear. I love playing baseball & everything about it, just need to create the outfit I want!!! “GO BLUEJAYS!”

What are your vintage must-haves?
“My vintage must-have is head scarves! They create a true pinup look even on those bad hair days! My other ‘obsession’ (as my pinup dolls would say) is Brooches….specifically anything Erstwilder! So far I have 71 Brooches, 1 necklace & 3 sets of ersty earings & about to add to my collection with the new ‘Grease’ release!”

What do you hope for the future of Pinup?
“My hopes for the future Pinup is simple….. “Stay classy, genuine & always encourage & help others”.”
