Back in August I did a feature on Project Pinup - a Latina pinup calendar
Betsy Sinclaire saw this feature and commented on it.
"Me encanta what they are doing, que pena that it is only for Mexican women. There are other Latinas like me que hacen pin up that dont get enough exposure. But its is nice to see that their cross segment de la populacion is getting exposure andale!!"
Allow me to translate
"I like what they are doing, I think that it is only for Mexican Women. There are other Latinas like me that do pinup that don't get enough exposure, But it is nice to see that their cross segment of the population is getting exposure.
(yes I know enough spanish to be dangerous)
Now I took this as somewhat of a challenge and sent Miss SInclair an e-mail asking for the links to her pics not knowing what to expect.
This wasn't what I expected at all and I'm so glad I sent the mail that started this off.
Betsy Sinclaire is currently based out of Savannah, Georgia but is from San Juan, Puerto Rico
From her Facebook Fan Page (which doesn't have anywhere near enough likes)
Most of the people I come into contact with say I have an old soul. That is fully reflected in the fact that I love the 1940's and 50's. I love vintage clothing, pictures, decor, and the simplicity of life during those days. Even as a kid, while others watched more contemporary shows, I watched Patty Duke and Leave it to Beaver. I love my pearls and wear them EVERYWHERE. Like the ying and the yang, I have my June Cleaver side and my Dita Von Teese like sides. I support causes that are near and dear to my heart such as animal rescue and the military among others.
Now I look at these pics and one thought comes to mind.
Wow. this looks like a 40's Cuban Dance Hall girl. It's a look I don't see a lot of in the modern pinup world and I have to admit that I love it.
This 5'5" 36C-29-40 beautiful Latina has done a great job in capturing the essence of a very classy period of time.
Now Miss Betsy.. I grew up in a spanish neighborhood and I can salsa, mambo, and merengue
none of them well, but I know the basics
How about a dance?
