Megan La Belle

Megan La Belle here. Burlesque comedy’s my game.

Miss Pinup UK was my platform. Before the competition I had never performed Burlesque and was always the odd one out with my friends due to my vintage style. Pinup UK introduced me into like-minded ladies where I felt so at home!

I love spending time with the entrants and getting to know them. I came to the competition with no talent and there are so many girls that worry about not having a talent. I know how that feels. I want the new entrants each year to feel as comfortable and have as much fun as I did the year I entered. I want new entrants to be filled with that new found confidence and gusto that I found. You can be anything or anyone you want to be.

Khandie Khisses

I have been about the Burlesque scene some 10 years. I was the first ever British performer to headline the first ever Australian Burlesque Festival. I have been repeatedly invited to star at the Paris Burlesque Festival and have even performed for British Science Council. From making movies with comic book legends to powersliding for rock stars, I have pretty much done more than I can remember and lots more than I have forgotten.

10 yrs? That’s a whole heap of skills. I can advise from a teacher perspective as I have a 100% sell out rate across ALL my classes I have arranged. I am known for my stage presence and high energy performances. I have a hard work ethic and believe that you are nothing without your audience.

I can help with stage craft to ensure whilst your costume can be amazing, you need to engage with the audience to be bookable, bankable and memorable.

My Business of Burlesque class has been taken by 100s of performers across the globe and I have been 100% self-employed for 7 yrs of my 10 yrs in Burlesque. I have set my business up to ensure my social media management is fine-tuned, my contracts are sound and I happily pass on my knowledge. I have an award winning photography studio so hit me up for all things imagery from copyright information to what makes a good promo image.

Lou Leigh Blue

Hello from the Merkin Queen!

It’s another year of Pinup UK and I cannot wait to meet all you lovely new entrance and work alongside you all.

This will be my third year as a mentor and my 8th year of performing as a Burlesque dancer and singer.

In previous years of Pinup I have been able to help entrance develop their special skills with my background in classical dance and singing as well as my passion for cabaret, bump ‘n’ grind and the theatre.

I have danced my way around the UK, Europe and America, Go-Go danced with a variety of rock bands and flashed my merkin to hundreds of people along the way and once again I am delighted to be offering my assistants to all the beautiful ladies of this competition.

So…you’ve already signed up to be the next Miss Pinup UK which just shows you’ve got what it takes. The hard part is done, now it’s just about having the best time as one of the entrants for 2016.

Lady Lolly Rouge

Hello Ladies, My name is Lady Lolly Rouge. I am a classic Burlesque performer, model and all round showgirl. This will be my fourth year mentoring for The Miss Pinup UK competition and it has been an unforgettable journey. I have had the pleasure of mentoring some wonderful ladies over the past few years each with their own unique sparkle. I cannot wait to get stuck in again and spread the Pinup love with you all this year.

Although I have performed both in the UK and Europe, by day I am a mum to two young girls. (Never a dull moment!) As well as performing I also enjoy learning new skills like costume making and trying out new styles of dance.

I am a strong supporter of being body confident and admiring beauty in its varying ages, shapes, sizes and colours. Beauty really isn’t just skin deep which is why I love the Special Talent section of the competition. You really get that opportunity to show who you are and dazzle us all with your star qualities.

My Skills 1. Stage persona development 2. Costuming 3. Choreography 4. Confidence Issues 5. General Support

I don’t think I have a 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 HMUA 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 piccies. Do you promote events like Rio Wild? Tell us about your favourite ones and definitely don’t forget the pics!

We hope this clarifies it for you. Miss Pinup UK and Miss Pinup International is an all-inclusive competition 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.

Judges scores & audience votes determine which 15 of the 20 Semifinalists go through to the Semifinals at the London Tattoo Convention.

WILDCARDS – 5 Wildcards will be chosen from ALL entrants not already through to the Semifinals, even those who were not voted through to Quarterfinals.

• Semi-Finals/Finals – non-performance Special Talents will take place off the stage in front of the judges.
