Gil Elvgren’s Real Woman In a Pin Up Girl Reality

Posted on

I while ago I wrote a posted a piece on how Pin-Up artists like Gil Elvgren were inspired by real women.

It was a case of: from photography to painting.

I adore watching how they reinterprit the features and give them a Pin-Up twist.

You can find the previous post HERE.

I have come across some more images I’d like to share with you:

    Confession time! I laughed so hard when I saw the pinup of the red graduation robe and the lingerie under it …. here’s a secret and now I’m putting it on a public blog …. When I graduated from college, it was this horrifically hot, humid day. Everyone wore new dresses under their graduation robes, but I knew that the auditorium (built in the late 1800s) had no A/C & it would be *murderous* and masochistic to sit in it with cap, gown & dress.

    So I wore exactly what that model is wearing — even the pinup nylons, because they were cooler. No one was the wiser, as I just kept that gown zipped through the whole ceremony …. And as I walked across the stage to get my diploma, it was one of the most powerful and sexy moments of my life, in essence, knowing I was grabbing that piece of paper in front of everyone, practically naked under that robe.

    Here I see this pinup girl, years later & think, “Hey, that wasn’t such a bad idea.”

    Thanks for the memories! 😀

    • That is such a brilliant story! And what a memory to have, you pinup, you!!!
      I also have a stockings story, I went to work feeling sexy and empowered. Unfortunately the elastic weakened from throwing them in the washing machine and they ended uo slipping down all day. By the time I was walking home they were rolled down by my ankles 😉
      Not so sexy! I learned that day why people hand wash their delicates 😉
