Java's Bachelor Pad: First off, congratulations on being crowned
our 5th Cheesecake Queen. You really have a lot of fans out there. You
captured 259 of 972 total votes. Not bad, huh? I know winning these contests
are old hat for you, but please tell me this one meant something special
to you. (Please! Please! Please!)
Kay O'Hara: Thank you Java, sincerely. I am truly honored
to be crowned your newest Cheesecake Queen. Much luv and thanx to
those who voted.... I am most appreciative. I think you already know
much this contest means to me...... some of the finest pinups hang-out
here at Java's..... being among them is truly special.
JBP: From what I understand, although you've been modeling for
a while, pin-up is something rather new to you. When did you start doing
pin-ups and why the switch?
KO: Pinup modeling began for me several years ago......though
not until 3 years ago did I take my art on-line. I've always been
a very avid and enthusiastic supporter of troops in the military, and thus
the beginnings of my pinups. With so many friends on tour, I started
sending my own little pinups to deployed troops, along with letters of
support, and it wasn't long before word of mouth (and passing around of
Pinups) that my mailbox and electronic inbox was flooded with requests
from soldiers all over the world. My dedication pics were very reminiscent
of the old WWII pinups and it was delightful to see how many people still
adore this art form. *For The Boys* was my first on-line presence......
a single-page website dedicated to troop support. With a very heavy
slant towards garter and stocking tease, it wasn't long before the requests
began pouring in for more....... so I taught myself html, produced a website
that caters to those passions of mine..... cheesecake pinup, garters and
stockings, old hollywood glamour......... and well, the rest is history!
JBP: How were you introduced to pin-ups? Many gals tell me they
caught the pin-up bug at a young age. Was this true for you too?
KO: I was indeed introduced to pinup at a very young age.....
my father was an artist.... his medium was oil on canvass..... his passion
was pinups. I'd been gazing at images of beautiful pinups since I
was 5, and always, always wanted to be one of them! Vargas
and Elvgren were household names at my home. I've spent many
years studying, and adoring, the Great American Pinup..... the artists
that created her and her place in Art History.
JBP: What I love about you (and other Modern
Femme Fatales like Kate Donovan
and Bernie Dexter) is that
you really take care in creating a theme with each photo set. You pay attention
to props and scenery and try to create some sort of visual narrative. Does
this come easy for you? How do you go about creating a shoot? Where do
you get your ideas from?
KO: Thank you! I would have to say *Yes*, creating visual
narrative does come quite easy for me. I am a writer (in the genre
of romance fiction and dabble in poetry as well), so my mind tends to work
well in the arena of story-telling! An artist, in any medium, must
be able to convey a story (feeling or emotion) to her audience.... either
with words or images, and I believe I've found a perfect marriage between
both. Creating a shoot, or mood, or theme, is the absolute funnest
part of what I do...... taking my viewer into the world of make-believe
and making them believe it! Many of my photosets are done by request....
from members of www.pinupglamour.com,
from fans... but I also draw great inspiration from those images created
by the Masters of Pinup...... and from that one image, I simply tell a
JBP: Now, you just mentioned your website, www.pinupglamour.com,
which is a member's site . (And is a beautiful site by the way.) A lot
of time when people hear that a gal has a paysite, they immediately think
everything in the member's section is hard-core. I know for you that is
not true. You've told me you pride yourself on being a classy pin-up. Is
it hard to balance that aesthetic and your own personal sensibilities with
the misconceptions people have? How do you deal with it?
KO: Thank you again! (*blows a kiss*) Klassy, vintage-style
erotica with a modern, sassy flair! That's what my images are all
about. I have never delved into the arena of full-nude photography
and I never will.... it's just not what I'm about. I'm all about
the tease..... about making people use their imagination, so no, it's never
been hard for me to find the balance. The style and nature of my
images are the same today as they were on the first day my site went live
on the web. When I hear comments like "you've got the classiest website
I've ever seen" or "you've got the perfect balance between klass and sass",
it tells me I'm doing something right. I don't think there's ever
been any misconceptions about my work being hard-core...... my members
and fans are not looking for that......nor am I.
JBP: What do you feel the state of modern pin-up is? Are there
modern-day gal you admire? And for those gals just getting started, what
sort of advice would you give them?
KO: The state of modern pinup? It's a state of modern
pinup! For every pinup that creates an image, there will be an eye
waiting to view it. The various tastes and attitudes reflected by
society is always apparent in the genre of pinup we will see. I don't
think I would ever say one is better than the other, because truly, beauty
is in the eye of the beholder. My taste naturally sways to the classic....
the cheesecake. All the modern pinups today are divine as are all
the varying styles they produce, but if I had to pick one favorite, it
would be Dita........ she's my Hero!
Advice to those gals just getting started
in pinup - to begin - BRAVO!! A world full of pinups is a wonderful
Too many of the gals that write me asking
advice, I tell them to find their own style. Don't be afraid of it.....
embrace it, because it's their own style that makes them unique.
When we look at the works of the Masters of Pinup, it's obvious to see
the different styles and visions between say Vargas and Fritz,
or Moran and Elvgren....... varied indeed but we love them
all. Marilyn Monroe is my biggest
inspiration......but it's my hope that when people see my images, they
see Kay..... influenced by Marilyn but definitely
And finally, have fun! Creating pinup,
whether modern or classic, should always be a celebration...... a celebration
of the art of being woman.
JBP: So, when it's all said and done, what do you hope to accomplish
with your pin-ups?
KO: Quite simply, to make people smile!
