With Pinup, You Can Be Whatever or Whomever You Want: Even Barbie {New Braunfels Pinup Photography}

I've been shooting an awful lot of pinup in the studio lately and one of those ladies is actually a popular Barbie cosplayer online.

Keela does an amazing Annalise from Princess and the Pauper. But I had in mind something different for her. Something more vintage and classic and, well, pinup.

I called on Adriana Espinoza Artistry to help me pull off this look for her. Adriana did an amazing job of helping me create our own life size Barbie. The very first Barbie doll that's so hard to find.

First we found the bathing suit for a pretty penny available online. Then we found a black dress that was close, but not quite and me made the necessary alterations to get it Barbie ready. Then Adriana came in and viola, Barbie Magic!

Keela was also a good sport about letting me play with another costume I recently acquired and played the role of a genie in a bottle for me. She looks amazing!
