2009 Pinup Workshop International Tour!

Hello from NYC, where we kicked off our 2009 Pinup Workshop International Tour with our first public Pinup Workshop of 2009 in Manhattan. It is freezing here compared to San Francisco, of course, but I just love NY so much it is really great to be here anyway. We’re heading out to see Kitty Nights, a local burlesque show, before heading back home tomorrow.

One of the ladies in the workshop yesterday was extremely pregnant, with only 4 weeks until her due date. She looked amazing and the photos turned out really well. I can’t wait to hear what she thinks of them.Another lady at the workshop told me that she found out about me through her 13-year-old daughter who really wanted to take the workshop herself and didn’t think it was fair that she had to be 18 to attend. Apparently she has a picture of me in her locker (wow! how flattering), wears leopard print and adores Bettie Page. Her mother was a bit chagrined by her pinup obsession and aspirations. I should have told her that the most sure-fire way for her to discourage these vampy tendencies is to strongly encourage them, thereby causing her daughter to rebel by being straight-laced, a la Saffron on Absolutely Fabulous. Ha! I’m not sure if this would really work, but it would be a lot more fun for the daughter if it didn’t. And I know that discouraging these tendencies doesn’t work in the long-run. My mom discouraged me… and look at me now! Ha!
