Legacy Pinup Pageant Registration Fee

Regular price $20.00

Abernathy's Presents: The 4th Annual Legacy Pinup Pageant as a part of the QCCA Rod and Custom Show at the QCCA Expo Center.

15 pinup beauties will come together to compete for the 4th 'Miss Legacy Pinup" title. Inspired by the styling of Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, and retro Hollywood glam from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Contestants will be judged on vintage style, hair and makeup, stage presence, and charisma.

This year's show is 'Space' themed, inspired by the Legendary Space Babes from movies, TV, and comic books. Contestants are encouraged to use the theme as inspiration in their wardrobe. Luke's Land Speeder from Star Wars will be the feature car at the show, and while we obviously all love Star Wars, outfits do not HAVE to be Star Wars themed. Also, we strongly discourage Halloween costumes. Contestants will be scored on their ability to combine themes from legendary space babes while also staying on par with classic 1950's looks. Challenging, we know!

This contest welcomes all! If you are new to the world of 50's pinup, or a veteran of the pinup contest circuit, we invite you to participate!

Contestants who participated in last year's contest who are wishing to compete again are welcome to do so. Contestants who placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, are asked to please come and encourage their fellow pinups but please not apply to compete.
