July Pinup of the Month- Ashley Croft
Hot Rod Pinup Ashley Croft
I never thought that the jaw harp and watermelons would come up in one of my Pinup of the Month interviews, but alas, I haven’t interviewed Ashley Croft before. With her timeless beauty and fun personality, Ashley is able to create some stunning pin up imagery. If you didn’t know any better you would think she stepped right outta the good ol’ days. Don’t get confused by that, because Ashley has a few ideas in her head about a pretty wild sounding, alternative style photo shoot… it involves an alcoholic drink of a certain color and a bouncy horse… I guess we will have to keep our fingers crossed with that one and hope it comes to life one day.
For now, you can check out these photos she has shared with us which were taken by Pin Up photographer Robin Cook.
I do tend to lean more toward traditional pin up themes in my shoots. I love the timelessness, and the way you can make it classy or campy! I do have a few things I’ve been dreaming up for a more alternative style, however. Think neon pink champagne, rhinestones, and a springy rocking horse!
What’s the most uncomfortable, piece of clothing or accessory you wore that you couldn’t wait to rip off at the end of the night, just to look good?
I tend to always overdress for the occasion, and actually don’t mind being uncomfortable for a few hours during an evening out. Super high heels and dresses I can hardly breathe in are in fair rotation.
What’s the oddest thing about you?
I’ve just recently learned to play the jaw harp, I have a pretty serious love for Scandinavian metal, and I have a crazy family lineage involving dance halls, gypsies, girl gangs, cowboys, carnies, and hustling watermelons.
If you drove around in a trademark car (a la Batman and the Batmobile) what would yours look like?
I have seriously wanted an early ’90s Chrysler LeBaron for years. It’s ridiculous. I would paint it super glittery turquoise with a candy pink and white interior and it would bear its name, “Champagne Dreams” on its vanity plate. One day.
Guilty pleasures? Any addictions? Fetishes?
RuPaul’s Drag Race, Britney Spears, Stilettos, Chocolate Milk, Big Hair, Pink Champagne, Vintage Lingerie, and Pasties.
Guys must flock to you everywhere you go. What’s the craziest thing a guy has done to try to win your affection?
I have received a marraige proposal or two on the street or the bar haha. But honestly, I usually only get hit on when I’m out of town! I live in a town with a close-knit scene and we’re almost all like siblings! I definitely tend to go for the hopeless romantics… It’s all about serenades and flowers.
