Behold! The Parkdale Pin-up!

Dress by Kari Marshall at Wanna Frock?

Last summer, I answered an ad looking for volunteers to model as classic pin-up girls. They had over 60 applicants and selected a dozen girls to photograph. I was one of the dozen.

After several delays, some major surgery, a complicated recovery and various other factors, the shoot finally happened last month.

It was probably one of the best things I could have done for myself.

I've battled my weight all my life. But I'm realizing that there are a lot of gorgeous women in the world who are bigger than I am, so I shouldn't feel unattractive because of my weight. In allowing Art to capture my form for posterity, I am embracing my round belly, my tree-trunk thighs, my sturdy washerwoman arms, etc.

They're mine. I'm down with them. We're tight.

Anyway, I dig my photos. They're cheeky and fun and pretty hilarious.

Be sure to check out all of the pin-ups in the gallery (probably not safe for work). Some have big breasts. Some have small breasts. Some have big asses. Some have teeny asses. Some have tattoos. One has glasses. They are beautiful. They are real.

Also, I should mention that all of the photographs on the site are for sale. There's merch available like lip balm, coffee mugs, calendars and t-shirts.


How fucking meta is that?

Nice to see your rack is still being put to good use. I'd buy some photos, but I prefer not to pay for my porn.

The dots... so hypnotizing...

Yes, that's my own dress. I brought it to the shoot.

On a related note, every woman in Toronto should go shopping at Wanna Frock? (1378 Queen East, 416-461-9167) and buy many, many things.

You are ridiculously photogenic. I am totally obsessed with pin ups and yours fit perfectly to form! If it wasn't totally creepy I'd buy a t shirt of the one where you're blowing a bubble, to go along with my Bettie Page underpants.

That would only be totally creepy if you weren't a supercute girl. WHICH YOU ARE!
