Meet Ms. Show Off 2016 - She's A Real Doll!
June 14, 2017
Team Show Off had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the lovely "Mustang Mary" on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. You may remember her smiley face and spirited disposition from the 6th Annual Show Off Auto Show Pin up Model Contest because she was the contest winner! In the photos below taken by our friend Thomas Ricks, you can see why Mary's look and personality was the judge's choice to win it all.
We caught up with Mary at her dance studio U Can Dance in St. Ann, MO and we asked her about the show and the life of a pin up model:
How did you get started in Pin Up? I have always loved antiques and going thrifting with my mother and great aunt as a child. I enjoy hearing stories from my mother about being a teenager in the 50's and seeing photos of her dressed in 50's attire. I have always loved Pin Up pictures and Photography and me being the goofball I am, love making the Pin Up faces and poses!
What brought you to the Show Off Auto Show last year? I saw it on Facebook and it is near my house. (You can find us on Facebook, too. CLICK HERE)
What is the most exciting thing about modeling for you? Getting to be a different character every time. It's fun to dress up and act like the character.
What tips can you offer ladies who are breaking into modeling or wanting to get started? Networking like crazy. If you like someone's work, message them and say so! Nine times out of ten, they will want to work with you.
What is missing from the world of pin up modeling and how do we improve it? I don't think anything is missing, it's a great industry as all ages, shapes, sizes, colors are welcome!
What are you most excited about for the Pin Up Contest on August 13 this year?
Being able to host and have fun, no nerves this time since I'm not competing!
No experience is necessary to participate. It's a ton of fun for first time pin ups. Then, after the contest, join us for our Pin Up Model Parade through the show cars. It all takes place on Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 9am-4pm at the Bridgeton Machinist Hall. We'll see you there! Don't forget to "like" Show Off Auto Show on Facebook and "follow" us on Twitter and Instagram.
