Did you know that when Mod Bettie launched in 2014 it began as an exclusively pin-up studio?! Check out these vintage Mod Bettie pin-up photos!
First our upcoming, #Squadbettie Intro To Pin-Up Class is being held on Wednesday, April 3rd. It will be a fun and informative event for those who are just starting their pin-up journey, as well as for established pin-ups! Learn how to style vintage hair and makeup with Mod Bettie's own beauty maven Jennifer Bartlett. Pin-up model and blogger Sassy Scarlet will talk about how to create and style your own vintage look. Internationally published pin-up model Valerie Voiture will teach you how to pose your body and strut your stuff! Mod Bettie's own pin-up model, Trixie VonHopps will talk to you about pin-up contests and how they work, as well as how to be a gracious winner (or loser). We will also have vintage vendors like Sew Retro Fashions and Maid Marian’s Closet to help dress you in style! Get your tickets right MEOWWW!
Next, join us on Saturday, April 13th for our Vintage Pin-Up Photo Shoot Event! Let’s get you dolled up in satin, pearls & diamonds. (And we can’t forget the signature red lip.) After all, old Hollywood knew that the best girls had glamour, glitz, and grace—and this is the photo shoot to get you there.
Rounding out the month, on Saturday, April 27th we will be crowning Miss Mod Bettie at our first-ever Mod Bettie Pin-Up Contest! 20 amazing Betties will compete for the titles of Miss Mod Bettie, Miss Naughty Bettie and Miss #Squadbettie.

Follow us for all things body positivity and female empowerment!
Vodka welcome. Vulnerability encouraged. You've probably seen posts, read the comments and heard statements like, "Selfies are so vain," "Why does she take so many pictures of herself?" "Who does she think she is?" *THIS IS WHERE WE WAVE A GIANT RED FLAG IN THE AIR AND SAY, UH-UH, SISTER. NOT HAPPENING ON MY WATCH.* In a society that puts a camera in every hand but is quick to shame the selfie, our mission is to empower women by creating a safe and supportive environment for female self-expression. So help me vodka. Fact. (<-- Said in the voice of Dwight from The Office) A Squad is a collective whose parts make a whole, complicated, dimensional, and beautiful. Raise yo' hand if you've ever been steamrolled by that nasty little two-headed shit-monster, JUDGEMENT. *wipes sweat from your brow* *prepares you to go back in the ring* Yea us too. All of the sudden all the amazing parts that make you whole are dissected and judged leaving a big gaping whole in your soul. But the thing is you aren’t parts. You are a totally BETTIE. The whole package. A real fucking human being. And we need you. Because although we are occasionally outspoken and often brave, sometimes we need the stiff hand of a righteous Bettie to pull us through our self-sabotaging shit. *Quietly raises hand* We are perfectly flawed and have created this community for our friends, acquaintances and companions. For love, because always for love. This is a place for women to discuss, and find support, re body positivity and female empowerment. Please feel free to share resources, get support, post something you’ve found inspirational, or just chat with someone who understands what you’re going through.
SquadBettie stands for Fempowerment, true acceptance, and building a supportive community. A true Bettie builds women up instead of bringing them down.
