What should I wear?!
There are three segments, Special Talent, Q&A and the Results. You can wear something different for all of those or the same thing, it’s totally up to you.
Most Entrants wear different outfits for each segment and some even bring a ‘walking around/photo op’ outfit for the day.
There is normally plenty of space in the dressing room and if the event is hosted in a hotel, you can always use your room for your outfits!
Do I need to pay for a ticket to the Miss Pinup events if I’m an Entrant?
Entrants appearing at events do not pay for their entry ticket, everybody else does, even those assisting Entrants with props/hair/makeup etc. (excluding the Pinup Team). Details of where to buy tickets for events will be advertised and sent out to Entrants to advise their friends, fans and families.
I don’t know what to do for my Special Talent, what do I do!?
Did you know that your Special Talent doesn’t have to be a performance?
YOUR Special Talent is what makes YOU special. If you are a Hair & Makeup Artist you can make up a model off stage and bring her on to showcase in front of the judges/audience. If you spend your spare time running marathons for Charity, tell us about it and bring some visuals for the audience and judges to look at. Or maybe, your Special Talent requires any audio/visual equipment, you may be charged for this. Please speak to your Mentor to decide the best way to exhibit your Talent.
We hope this clarifies it for you. Miss Pinup UK, Miss Pinup Ireland and Miss Pinup International are all-inclusive competitions open to all women over 18 and we heard that too many potential Entrants were worried about the Special Talent aspect.
Every Entrant gets approximately 3 minutes to perform/present/exhibit their Special Talent to the judges. Please ensure that your Special Talent is no longer than 5 minutes.
If you need help to find your Special Talent you can talk to our team of fabulous Mentors. They’re mostly entrants from previous years, so trust me, they know their stuff!! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us to any of the Facebook pages.
