I Love Vintage Pin Ups

for lovers of pin up art and photography! 1,019 People

    That's Who I'd Like to Be

    The old pin ups are the best at picturing the kind of woman I strive to be. To be classy, glamorous, beautiful and sexy. To not be trampy, slutty or vulgar. Some sultry bedroom eyes or ruby red lips.     (all pin ups from http://freespace.virgin.net/b.mercer/Pinup1.html...

    Pin Up Photo Shoot

    I will be doing a photo shoot and will be made up to look like a vintage cowgirl, like Gil Elvgren stuff, but real.  Has anyone done anything like this, and if so do you have ideas or advice for me?  I am also a hunter, so I will be doing some shots with guns & camo...

    Sometimes I like to do my makeup in a

    vintage-ish way and I think it's so so pretty. I just think the style is really cool and wish makeup trends would swing more in that direction; I think this year's makeup trends are awful tbh! I can't wait for things to go back to being more feminine and classic lol

    Vintage Goddesses

    I really love vintage pin-ups. The women in their have such excellent figures unlike the starved skeletons today who adorn our walls. They are elegant coquettes who are simply beautiful in many aspects. The women in these posters always left much to the imagination...

    Vintage Clothing

    I must say that I am so drawn by the clothing the pin-ups wear. I wish that I could style my hair like Bettie Page don a summer dress, a beautiful little thing as bright as my heart is hot-blooded. This number would definitely conceal the real prize of all pin...

    I love how the women are sexy

    and gorgeous whilst still wearing clothing! I'm not against glamour modelling but I love how vintage pin up girls are fun, sexy, curvy and confidant without showing too much skin!

    I especially admire the work of Gil Elvgren.  He portrays women being beautiful, sexy and independent.

    Who Wouldn'T?

    Have to love this time! For all those people who are always whining "...back in my day.." about how 'sexy' things have gotten in this decade, please note that pin-ups had all the sex appeal any art form or advertisement needed. Whether it's the puppy tugging at their knicker's or...

    I love that with pin up modeling you don't have

    to be a size zero to be considered beautiful or sexy (though you can be)and the models express this with their clothes ON.

    They're classier than the ads of naked,

    photoshopped women today! I'd love to have a banging hourglass body and the face of a goddess! Maybe one day I could chase guys off with a stick! ONE DAY!

    Teh Art That Existed Before the "Erotic Photograph".

    When it was more the pose and the exaggerated lines and the setting that made the image beautiful, not the details or the shock value... Plus, those images were lovingly created by hand, not just "posed and snapped"!

    If you get a chance look 'em up.

    ..Ekman, Vargas, Medcalf, Elvgren, Buell....just to name a few. The talent of the artists is as amazing as the beauty of their subjects. What I most love about this genre is this was an era when beautiful, sexy, alluring women had curves...their thighs touched, they had...

    Pin These Girls to Your Wall Buddy ;)

    I've always loved the pinups from Vargas, to Elvgrin, and to the lesser known artists. Vargas was the artist who first drew me in. The varitey of women with real curves, not the waif look of now, and the innocent naughtiness make them appealing.  They are also a piece of...

    The Best Thing to Come From War

    I love the nose art     Aircrews in World War II decorated their planes with pictures of pinups and pretty girls, typically modelled after the "cheesecake" art of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargo, and George Petty. It was (and still is) an interesting practice. Some...
