Step back into the 1980s at a fancy dress flashback disco and support Miss Elvina Anne’s fundraising.
Chloe Griffiths, known as Miss Elvina Anne in pinup circles, is a Pinup Doll Australia finalist.
Miss Elvina Anne chose the Domestic Violence Resource Centre to support in the charity awareness section of the event.
The October 21 fundraiser at Town Green Inn features some vinyl spins, games and an “air guitar competition” with prizes and raffles.
“Hopefully it will be a really good night for people to reminisce and get back in touch with the 80s,” she said.
Pinup Doll Australia winners are determined by the entrants competing in many sections including the charity awareness section.
Pinup Doll Australia provides an opportunity for pinups to compete at a national level in a family-friendly public event, Chromefest at The Entrance.
The winner of Pinup Doll Australia is given the opportunity to compete at an international level at Miss Pinup International in London.
Miss Elvina Anne said pinup was like having a family where people shared the same passion.
“We all share the same belief that we are all beautiful no matter what,” she said.
“Pinup is about empowering yourself.”
Miss Elvina Anne said she liked the style, clothing and the simplicity of the 1950s.
“It’s not about winning,” she said.
“It’s about the experience and the joy of sharing pinup with other people.”
Entrants are travelling from across Australia to take part in the national finals at Chromefest on October 28 to 29 with the crowning of Pinup Doll 2017 on October 29.
Miss Elvina Anne, Miss Crystal Belle and Miss Cherie Amour are finalists from the Hastings in the event.
Tickets for Miss Elvina Anne’s fundraiser cost $25 a person.
Tickets are available from the Town Green Inn or phone 0481 197 384.
