Pinup 101 Workshop NEW dates for MAY 2012

Wanting to know how to achieve that Rockabilly and Pin-Up look, but have no idea where to start? Then sign yourself up for ‘Pin-up 101 BASICS’
Our first Pinup 101 Workshop on the 31st of Marchc was a great success, with our first class being full up - 16 ladies in total attended which was exciting for everybody. This time round we have decided to run the same class, but split it into two smaller groups of 12 ladies in each - this way we can give each lady that extra special attention that she needs!
Girls are always asking us “how do you get the look?” Well, now’s your chance to discover all the tips and tricks from girls in the know!
Bring your girlfriends, let your hair down (or tie it up in a bandana) and join the gals from AnonaMiss Beauty Emporium, Miss Happ and Sailor Jerry, while we show you easy step-by-step techniques for creating that basic pin-up look. From the perfect eyeliner application to how to wear those damn bandanas!
The cherry on top will be a cocktail hour with Sailor Jerry where you’ll get to shake, stir and sip cocktail like a starlet from a by-gone era.
On the day each of our attendees will receive a little gift hamper with a whole bunch of glorious goodies from AnonaMiss, Miss Happ & Sailor Jerry to set our promising pinups on their way in style!

We will also have a some awesome give-aways on the day including a Tattoo voucher from Milo "Mr Lucky" Marcer Tattoo...how much better could it get?!

What is Rockabilly style?

I get asked this often. "So what is this that you are doing?", "Why skulls?", "What's with the tattoos?"..so here goes..these are purely my views...in a nutshell :)


Rockabilly has it true roots in the rock n’ roll culture of the 50’s, but today girls and guys around the world have taken it to a new level. The look is edgy with strong tattoo influences and is very visible within the alternative community. Many a Rockabilly guy and girl is tattooed which only highlights their need to be an individual - it's a way to stand out from the crowd and is very reminiscent of the rebellious attitudes of icons from the era such as James Dean, Elvis Prestly and the notorious Bettie Page amoung others..


In South Africa we are seeing the subculture slowly gaining popularity and awareness amongst the younger 20 – 30 something’s, and for many it’s a natural progression from other small, niche subcultures such as Goth or punk.
For the modern rockabilly guys and gals, …

What is pin up style?

Although the lines are not definite , there are a few little details to take note of here when looking at the pinup style....

The Pin Up style tends to be slightly more feminine when compared to the rockabilly style. This look is more vintage inspired with looks being very closely modeled on styles (mainly) from the 40’s and 50’s. For the Pin up style girls often revert back to vintage patterns to produce garments that are known as “vintage reproductions” circa 1950 as in our Miss Happ Vintage Dress (below), which was on original Vogue pattern from 1954.


Many girls who dress in the pin up style will go as far as wearing beautiful retro seamed stockings with suspenders and glamourous vintage inspired lingerie as seen at online at What Katie Did together with perfectly coiffed Hair and beautifully applied make up.








Compared to the rockabilly girls who have a very noticeable rebellious look about them with their tattooed bodies and bright hair, pin up girls have a softer, more feminine look,…
