It's Vintage, Darling

Well, let's move on from that other post all about my feels and talk about writerly things again, yes? (Thank you for the lovely comments and general heart-swell-y-ness. You are all SPECTACULAR.)

Anyway.

My MC Tuesday is a little bit rockabilly, a little bit pin-up. As we all know, sometimes we have to research certain things for our writing. And then, sometimes we put in things that we already know quite a lot about because then when we have to "research" it's just pure fun times.

COMMENCE ROCKABILLY/PIN-UP/VINTAGE THINGS!

1. I love love LOVE Cherry Dollface. She's a pin-up model, YouTube beauty-guru-type, and general all-around awesome lady. Check out her tats! She does great tutorials on vintage hairstyles, rockabilly clothing and other assorted cool things.



2. Vixen Vintage a.k.a. Solanah, a blogger and cool catlady who wears vintage pretty much all the time. I love her blog and she is a source of knowledge on everything you ever needed to know about stockings, petticoats and knee-high lace-up boots.

3. I have wanted this book for ages and I finally bought it! Gil Elvgren was a pin-up artist and his pictures are just beautiful. You've probably seen them without even knowing it.




So hopefully that gives you a good idea of my MC, and also some fun stuff to check out if you so wish (like anyone needs more distractions).

Tell me some groovy things about your MCs! I love little character quirks, it makes everything in a book brighter :)
