Pin-up diva The Blue Haired Betty and SA’s only rockabilly lifestyle festival, Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells, are looking for Cape Town’s sassiest pin-up.

Cape Town’s Blue Haired Betty, who earlier this year was named the second runner-up in the international Miss Viva Las Vegas Pageant in Nevada, USA, will be hosting the first Miss Bombshell Betty Pin-up Pageant at the Rockabilly Festival on Saturday 14 November at the West Coast Ostrich Ranch.

This classic pin-up is an iconic image which is rooted in early burlesque and wartime plane artworks.

Finalists will dress and style themselves in one retro inspired outfit of choice, and strut their stuff on stage during the live finale where a panel of well-known and established personalities within the local Rockabilly and Kustom culture scene will be asked to judge the finalists on specific criteria, based on the ethos of the pageant.

An overall winner will receive a front cover feature in SA Hotrod Magazine, a Harley Davidson hamper, clothing from Pinn’d Up Clothing, beauty products from Anona Miss Beauty Emporium and more.

A first and second runner-up will both receive hampers full of perfectly pin-up prizes as well.

This pageant is looking for a girl who is a good balance of the characteristic old-school look and values, strong views, and with the independence of a modern woman.
