May's pinup of the month is none other than...Miss Crystal McBootay! She is one of my favorite pinup models! I'm very excited and honored to have had the pleasure of interviewing someone I've admired for many years. Scroll down to learn about this doll!

Tell us about yourself. How long have you been into pinup and/or pinup modeling?

Well my name is Crystal McBootay and I am a plus size model, I have been in the industry since 2010 and I have loved pinup/retro wear for about 10 yrs now but I have always loved the older style of movies with women with curves showing off what their momma gave them so to speak. I'm very much the type that doesn't shy away from showing off my body but I am known from time to time to wear a circle skirt lol.

Do you participate in a vintage or pinup lifestyle?
I try to participate as much as possible during the weekends if the weather permits. Unfortunately, living in the Midwest calls for jeans and leggings (September thru April).

What is your favorite band or musician?
I have a few faves - Tiger Army, Imelda May, Patsy Cline,  Horror Pops and Nina Simone.

1960 Chevy Nova

Who is your inspiration?

I would probably say my grandmother.  She was born during the depression and went to high school in the late 40s /early 50s so she helps me with finding neat pieces and shows me photos from way back when which helps with inspiring outfit ideas and she also is someone who supports my journey thru modeling and just life in general and has taught me a lot about life.

What makes you an extraordinary pinup?

I don't know if I'm extraordinary but I think I have a good personality and try my best to not be catty and I'd like to think with my modeling that I am helping to inspire anyone of size that we are all beautiful and that we shouldn't judge others for what we look like. 

Either way, she's extraordinary to me! I love inspiring pinups who reflect beauty inside and out! Be sure to check out her facebook and website or follow her on instagram for more of Crystal's positivity and cheer!  Who has been your favorite pinup of the month so far? Would you or someone you know like to be a pinup of the month? Let me know in the comments. Thanks loves!
