The June/July 2018 edition of Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics Magazine is a pin up special and I am so over the moon to be the model gracing the cover of this edition, thanks to being featured in a painting by the amazing Andy Hosegood.
Here I am. Wallowing. It’s a joyful wallow because a couple of weekends ago was the Rockabilly Rave 2018 and oh my dear lord christ baby Jesus, Zeus and Osiris I had such an amazing time! You may recall me blogging about the 2017 event (read it HERE) and this year was somehow even better! Say whaaaaaaat!
What ho! It’s 2018 and that means a whole new year of events are afoot! A highlight of 2017 for me was Atomic Vintage Festival and with 2018’s yearly dose of Atomic coming up in July, I thought you needed to know the haps and why you need to be there!
So, held on an airfield about 20 minutes north of Northampton the Atomic Vintage Festival pops up every Summer to provide a fun-filled weekend of dancing, planes, drag racing (not the RuPaul sort, well.. maybe), funfair rides, bands, shopping and more! I attended in 2016 and took part in the fashion show as well as working promo as an Atomic Bombshell, but 2017 well and truly took the biscuit.
I’m quite keen on rockabilly/vintage events, which you may have picked up from some of the style and events posts so far under the Fork My Life section of this site, so I was excited to see a new monthly event pop onto the scene in the form of The 2 Rs thanks to the Freddies of Pinewood team.
Here’s a bit of Fork My Life, all up in your face. In June (yes I know, I’m late) I had the pleasure of walking in the fashion show at the Rockabilly Rave, splendidly organised by Bettina Scarlett Presents. As well as taking part in the fashion show, I got to experience my first Rockabilly Rave weekender and I had a BALL!
