I've noticed that everyone (mostly) has a cute/beautiful Pin-Up Name associated with them. How did you come up with the name? I would love to create one, but I would love to know how everyone came up with theirs (and taking suggestions for mine!)! Please share and discuss!!!

I noticed that you found your pinup girl name ;) I don't go by an alias on here, but I have a model/roller derby name that I have been saving for when I have time to start playing roller derby...I decided to start using it as a model alias recently.  My alias is "Abby Normal", I got it from Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein" when Igor goes to get the brain and he drops the genius brain, he picks up another jar that he thinks has a name on it "Abby Normal" but it actually says abnormal.  I always thought that scene was hilarious and it stuck with me.  I am going to be a psychiatrist so I though it was a fitting name for me ;)

I absolutely love that film! Great derby name too :)

Love the movie, love the name!!! Totally fits... I always had a picture of Lucy's Advice 5c stand, so I totally get how you got yours!!

I am going to get that picture and frame it for my office

lol...

I play roller derby as well! My alias is "Insanity V.L. Horror # 3 a.m." It is nice to meet ya!

Hey Double O!

I think you bring up a super interesting topic. There are so many darling and creative names floating around the pinup world, so why not dig into their history a bit?

Initially, my name wasn't intended for me. Let me explain...

I am lucky enough to have an amazing job as a song writer/artist developer. What this means is I co-write material for, stylize, and brand every music artist I work with. Babydoll Carson was a name I had thought up while brainstorming stage names for a pop artist I was working with at the time. She ended up going with a different name, which was a HUGE relief because I secretly wanted to keep Babydoll to myself. 

Truth is I've got some big plans for Babydoll. I'm currently writing a rockabilly record and fixing to get a band together by the end of the summer. I never had the nerve to live the pinup lifestyle or pursue my own career as a music artist, so taking on the alias of Babydoll Carson represents a new beginning for me. 

So that's my story! Can't wait to hear everyone else's :)

Ok, so I chose the name Double O Jenn (instead of O O Jenn, which i thought would be misread way too much) because in order to do my blog, I will be doing it "secretly." I've always wanted to be a spy, and despite not having seen a single James Bond movie ever (or read the books, which I understand are great!), Double O Seven has always stuck with me. Just a slight modification and it's been stuck in my brain. I figured that it's a good way to go... lol. And I will go more into the "secret" when I post my intro to the blog, probably tomorrow night. I'm having a great time getting all the stuff together for the first "real" issue with Lucille Ball as the inspiration!! Who knew? Psych and Pin-Up... go figure! And I so love roller derby (I unfortunately can't do roller derby... *sigh*) and am a musician (or was, back in the day...), so I love the stories!!

Thanks for sharing!! <3 Double O... =)

I love it, you should totally take pictures like the james bond intro image! I dont know if it is copywritten to be able to use it for your blog...have to look into that.  People use the charlies angels pose all the time. 

i love charlie's angels!!! (even the cheesy re-boots!) they were the reason i wanted to become a spy (because that's what I thought they were when I was little -- yep, old enough to have watched the original...lol). I think if I modify the graphic a little (maybe a PUG instead of james bond??? hmmm...) I may be able to use it. And switched to blogspot... seems to be easier to use, which is huge for a non-techno like me. And I get to upload my own themes, designs, pics, etc for free (as opposed to wordpress, which charges).

My birthday is July third so I have always been called a firecracker baby.  I'm a Blaise of fire...LOL

Miss Stacy Blaise

i like it... or blaise of glory... either one!
