Little Gem, representing Miss Fortune, Wins 2nd Place at Hemsby Pinup Contest!


It’s taken a little while to find the time to post this but we are chuffed to bits to say that model, Little Gem, won 2ND prize, while representing Miss Fortune at the Hemsby Rock ‘n’Roll festival weekender!  We’re so chuffed!

We didn’t get to go the show ourselves to see the contest but have been fortunate enough to get a few shots back from Pyramid Clicks photography and others attending the event.

We have also done a little studio shoot with Miss Rain Photography to really capture the outfits.

This is first playsuit I made Gem, just for fitting purposes and to check how she liked the design.  We did this back in march.  I love this colourway but it’s maybe a bit too subtle for a pinup contest

Then for the final design which we photographed after the contest.

We decided the skirt reveal would add a fun element to the pinup contest 🙂

Finally, the evening dress in all it’s glory!

It was really fun getting to do a playsuit and an evening dress which I’ve never previously made and also an interesting process, working with Little Gem on the concept and design and then making the bespoke outfits for her.  She was really great  to work with and did us proud at the show!
