🍍What was your question and answer at the Pageant?🍍

‘My question from pageant was who would I pick to hang out with for a day in that era? 

I said Betty Page because we are a lot alike. I designed my own outfits. And jewelry and such. Like to shop at thrift stores. Together we could design our own stuff in the life of Betty page’

🌴What was the best part of the Pageant for you?🌴

‘Best part was me being dressed up in outfits that I created and felt so beautiful even more so then my wedding day.’

🍍How long have you been involved in the Pinup/Rockabilly community?🍍

‘I’ve just started being involved with the Pinup but it has been a part of me since I was young. I’ve had my bangs like this since I was 4 or 5 and learned to sew with my Gramma and loved Marilyn when I was young but soon learned she was a dits so I didn’t want to lookup to her and then I learned about Bunny Yaeger and Betty Page and I knew I was hooked.’

‘And thank you to my hair and makeup Alison Alexander’

We are so happy you made Third Place Miss. Ether Cole you are a real sweet heart.
