Well hello Miss Pin-Up 2012

Posted: July 11, 2012 by burningriverrollergirls in BRRG News, General, Interviews
ImageLast weekend Burning River Roller Girls were in full force at Spitfire Saloon in Cleveland for the 3rd annual Mods vs. Rockers weekend!  Merchandise and baked goods (baked by Burning River Roller Girls!) were sold and our own West Nel Virus entered and won the first ever Mods Vs. Rockers Miss Pin-Up contest.  We asked her a few questions about her win:
Katniss Evermean: How does it feel to be Miss Pinup?
West Nel Virus: To be honest, my entry into the contest was rather last minute, which made winning all the more surprising.  Having won, I am flattered and honored to be the very first “Mods v. Rockers Ms. Pinup.”
KE: What kind of questions were you asked?
WNV: (these are paraphrased, as I don’t recall exactly how the questions were worded, and I was so excited/nervous when  providing answers.)
Q:What would you be if you were a dessert?
A: I’m not much of a sweets person, so I would be sweet potato pie, as it’s sweet and a lil’ spicy (wink, wink)
Q: If they made a movie out of your life, what would the title be?
A: Hot Mess – life can be a handful between keeping it classy at the day job, and being a rough and tumble derby girl at night.
Q: Why do you wish to be crowned “Ms. Pin-Up 2012?”
A: Rosie the Riveter comes to mind, not because of her pinup “look,” but because of the strong, independent woman she represents.  I would like to portray those same ideals as Ms. Pin-Up.
KE: How did you feel your chances were vs. the other contestants?
WNV: It’s hard to say, some girls brought their A-game – did you see those victory rolls?!  I did have the support of my BRRG – they certainly made me feel confident.
KE: Did you have any coaching from the sidelines?  I hear you had a stage mom?
WNV: Speaking of supportive BRRG members… I’d like to thank my stage momager, Mandy Maggots, for giving me not-so behind-the-scenes hints and tips along the way!
KE: Any advice for future pin ups?
WNV: You’re playing a character of sorts, put on a show for the spectators and judges!
You can visit Spitfire’s blog to read about the day.  And the most exciting thing other than the win?  West Nel Virus will be on their next  t-shirt! We will post details once we know them! Until then, enjoy photos of the contest and our gorgeous girl West Nel Virus!
