  • I think that is such an awesome idea and have been toying with that myself but I like you was a little unsure how to do my hair. So for your clothing you could do like a little baking scene with a simple white ruffled apron that had little cherries on it, some Red FM pumps holding a rolling pin. if your hair is long you do something with big curls - let me try to find a pic and i'll post what I envision.

  • or you could sit in an office chair naked but you'll be turned so you can't see anything and you'll have your legs pulled up towards your chest holding a steno pad and pen - kind of play on naughty 1950's secretary. oh I could give you ideas on this all night! FUN

  • Youtube has every tutorial you need for pinup hair and makeup. One of my absolute favorite tutorials for pinup makeup is based off of a Katy Perry look and is done by Masquerade Makeup. It is really the best tutorial and the way she explains it will make it so easy to replicate. Good luck and have fun!!!
