Over twenty women modeled their classic pinup fashions. They also came up with pinup personas and answered what being a pinup girl means to them.

Halsey Fuller, or "Betty June" came away as the winner. It was Fuller's first pinup girl contest.

But she says she's enjoyed the fashion for as long as she can remember because of her grandma.

"It's (my name) after my grandmother. I used to dress up in all of her stuff growing up so I think that's where I love of pinup came from. She had all the hot pants and all of the little dresses," says Fuller.

Fuller got to have a photo shoot downtown with classic cars as a part of winning Miss Pinup.

All of the ladies said they had fun and want to start a pinup club.
