Thanks to Missy for doing such a great job, and for helping me submit the photos this year.

To grab copies of my most recent pinup, keep an eye on my Linktree. πŸ™‚

Since I’ve gotten a lot smaller since then, I decided it was time to put together a new “Rio” look for this Halloween. This time, I’m using separates produced by popular pin up clothing manufacturers.
