Tell me about your featured photo(s). When were they taken? Why are they your favorite? They were taken at the Gas Axe Garage by Sarah Hardcastle of Dynamite Dames Photography. They were taken, I believe May of 2012. I loved everything about the shoot. It was my first time working with the Dynamite Dames girl, I hit it off with Sarah and Vintage Flair right away. I loved how my my hair and make up looked, I loved how Sarah was so nice and great to work with. They both really know their stuff!
How long have you been modeling/enjoying photography? I have enjoyed photography since I was 16 years old. I did modeling off and on for my photography friends. I really started my pin up modeling a year ago.
Who are your favorite Pinup Models? Past or present inspiration? Bettie Page will always hold a special place in my heart because she was the first pin up model I had ever seen. I was so taken back by her beauty, I knew I wanted to be like her. I was about 15 or 16 at that time. Since then I have come to really appreciate a all pin ups, I feel that they are all beautiful in their own ways. My current inspiration has been Brigitte Bardot. Not only was she a beautiful model but she is also an Animal Rights Activist. I had a ton of respect for her.
What is some of your favorite clothing lines? Favorite Designers? I love PIn Up Girl Clothing, Heart Breaker Fashion, Viven of Hollway and so many more. My favorite (currently) is the Deadly Dames clothing line by Micheline Pitt.
If you could shoot with any photographer, past or present, who would it be? I know that Andy Warhol is not known for his photography compared to his other art but I would say him hands down. I can only imagine the greatest that man would create.
What is your favorite color and why?My favorite color changed with my mood : ) but right now I am going to say that butterscotch is my favorite color. I am just simply drawn to it.
If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead who would it be? Marie Antoinette, I have so much I would ask her. So many stories I would want to hear. She is someone who I look up to. I belive she was very misunderstood but truly was a good person with good intentions. I even have a portrait of her on my left arm.
How did you get your model name? After my first few pin up shoots, I thought that it was time to come up with a pin up name. I made many list but just couldn't figure out 'the one.' So, my boyfriend comes home from work and we are talking about it. He finally says to me how about Suzy Starliner. See, my favorite car is the 1961 Ford Starliner and of course my boyfriends knows all about how much I love that car, he is the one who actually showed me the car for the first time. So, my pin up name came to be thanks to him.
