But seriously. This is the official Guidebook and Journal for our celebrated Pin Up Boot Camp. We (Jenn Martin and Nikki Nefarious) have presented our boot camp from both coasts and now you can own a copy of the book, along with the guided journal. Both are based off these amazing workshops and are packed with insights and lots of fun.

Pin Up Boot Camp: Your 6-Week Guide to Living the Shiny Side of Life” is a self guided self help course that you can do at your own pace. Even if you never wish to pose for a Pin Up photo or perform in a Burlesque show this guide will help you live up to your fullest potential, organize your life, create your own opportunities, take control of your career, and expand your horizons beyond limitations. Each chapter is designed to be completed in one week, if possible, along with daily journaling and weekly challenges. Challenges, such as “Wear Your Words” and “Be a DIY DIVA,” await you within these pages. Tried and true tips, like “Gloss It, Don’t Toss It” and “Work Your Social Network,” will help guide you down the path to your Pin Up potential. Each chapter is focused on a specific theme, some of which are “Your Pin Up Arsenal,” “The Whole Shebang,” and a special bonus chapter for Pin Up models and Burlesque performers called “Work It Girl.” All you need is this book, a journal, and your shiny self.

The Official “Pin Up Boot Camp: Journal” was lovingly created to accompany the Pin Up Boot Camp book. Inside this journal you will find invitations to wreck certain pages, paste photos of your creations, and chronicle your journey. So much more than that, this is a journal and a scrapbook all in one.  “Pin Up Pages” and “Truth and Dare Time!” challenges are featured in the first section of this journal so that you can follow along each week as you read through the “Pin Up Boot Camp: Your Six Week Guide to Living the Shiny Side of Life.” The second half of this journal is lined pages, ripe for the filling and interspersed with quotes to help keep you moving forward with confidence and shine. As you fill these pages you will learn more about yourself to uncover a life designed by you. Don’t be surprised if you become inspired, or become an inspiration for others. It happens. Trust us.

Spring Style Before and After : MK Olsen

17 May

marykate after thumb

Here recently at Pin Up Boot Camp we’ve been talking about changing up our look a bit for the Spring. Maybe add a bit of color to your makeup or wardrobe palette… Maybe try a different look or style. Well, one of the Olsen Twins seemed to have taken that advice and ran with it.

Here’s a before-picture of Mary Kate Olsen. Though we love how comfortable and confident she is, and while there’s no true rules of style we are pretty sure she is breaking quite a few and we love that she doesn’t seem to care…

Now, we aren’t suggesting that you do anything drastic to update your look this Spring. But we have to admit that we definitely love the vast change in the after image. This is certainly an update from hobo-chic to polished-pinup! Here’s the full after-picture of Mary Kate Olsen.

PUBC Week 2 Dare: Anastasia Foxx

Imagine being featured as a model in an international magazine…just after your 41st birthday!!! Many models have the goal of becoming a published model with international exposure, but a lot of us never get that opportunity – and that’s OK, there’s much more to being a Pin Up than that.

However, Anastasia Foxx is a shining example of how using your mantra will help you to not only live a Shiny life, but it can also help you achieve your goals!

You’ll want to watch this whole thing to the end, it is so incredibly inspiring!!!!

What is Legislate This! Burlesque?

Legislate This! is a burlesque show fundraising event benefiting Planned Parenthood. Legislate This! was started in April of 2012 by Ginger Snaps of Austin, TX as a reaction to the ever growing frustration of living in a state governed by Dick Perry.

Legislate This! had it’s inaugural show in Austin, Texas in April of 2012. This production is an annual event which brings together the burlesque community to show their support for Planned Parenthood. All proceeds from Legislate This! are donated directly to that show’s local PP chapter.

This year Legislate This! will be held in Austin on May 11th at the North Door. We are hoping to bring out national support and would love to see different Legislate This! burlesque productions go up that same weekend (May 9th through the 12th) across the country to show our legislators that women (and men) across the country will stand up for their rights, their health, and the respect they deserve.

How to be a Pin Up Model

11 Apr

20130410-183048.jpg

We came across a blog post at PinCurl.com that answers the question “How do I become a Pin Up Model.” If you follow our PinUpBootCamp Facebook page then you already know we believe anyone can become a Pin Up, or at least live like one. However, the modeling business is a whole other business indeed.

The PinCurl article gave some great insight on how to dig into the Pin Up modeling industry that we agree with and want to share with you.

Get The Look!

The first thing they go into is to learn Pin Up style hair & makeup, and to get some pin up clothes. This might go without saying, but don’t feel that you have to purchase clothes from a specific store to be a Pin Up. We absolutely agree that once you get the look you should capture it with the help of s good photographer.

Be A Pro!

The next bit they go into is professionalism. Absolutely! Even if you look the part, how can you expect to be seem as a professional by potential clients if you don’t act like a professional. The keys points to stress here is the first impression you give off. A portfolio, for most of us, is our first impression; so make sure your photos are high quality images that features relevant images of you. Being on time and prepared will help build a reputation of professionalism – this world is a small one, so being known as someone who isn’t a flake will only help your career.

Get Out There!

The last part they go into is really all about networking – getting out there. We can’t agree enough! Once you’ve got the look and have captured the look, it’s your responsibility to get it (& yourself) out there for the world to see. Joining portfolio sites is a great way to meet new friends, find photographers, and search for gigs. Look for local opportunities; such as burlesque shows, car shows, local festivals, and ask them if you can get involved as a model. We also suggest to look for other types of modeling gigs you can do as a Pin Up, like promo modeling or live mannequin modeling.

You glow, girl!
