Basically what is a pin up girl??
A pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. Meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models, fashion models, or actresses.
I have done the yahoo image search and even looked at photobucket.com images But cant seem to find what I am looking for. Anyone know where I can find Pin-Up Girl pictures/photos that are military themed ….. Preffereably Army.
Do a Google search for "army pin-up girls" and click on images. Unfortunately, most are for a Halloween costume, but there are other images on there. The images should be able to lead you to sites where maybe others are available.
I know they are girls from the 50s, I've seen pictures, but what exactly are they? Are they posters or 50s porn or something?
Idk where to put this sorry
another q sorry: is it weird for a 15 y/o to be interested in pin up girls? I mean, they're really pretty! (and classier, too.)
A pin-up girl or pin-up model is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as pop culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display. Pin-up girls are often glamour models, fashion models, and actresses.
Pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos (see the List of pinup artists). The term was first attested to in English in 1941; however the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s. The pin up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or be from postcard or chromo-lithographs, and so on. Such photos often appear on calendars, which are meant to be pinned up anyway. Later, posters of pin-up girls were mass-produced.
Many pin ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.s during World War II. Other pin-ups were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. The genre also gave rise to several well-known artists specializing in the field, including Alberto Vargas and George Petty, and numerous lesser artists such as Art Frahm.
