  • March 1st 2016 Pageant Contestant Submissions Open
  • June 1st 2016 Pageant Contestant Submissions Closed
  • June 4th 2016 Mandatory Contestant Meeting (Kent, WA) 6P
  • July 16th 2016 Car Show 4 Kids/ Pin Up Pageant & Bake Sale 


As a big part of mid-century life, many towns had their own pageant queen. Although today we have modern pin up swimsuit pageants and some more risqué pin up pageants, we rarely see a family friendly vintage pin up pageant. Our vision is to bring back an authentic vintage feel and family friendly pageantry for the Car Show 4 Kids, a Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Benefit. Contestants will be participating in a Pin Up Pageant/Pin Up Bake Sale fundraiser in support of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, a Hula Hoop Contest, and a Dessert Eating Contest. The term ‘Suzy’ comes from the 1950’s “Suzy Homemaker” style that contestants will be dressed as – we don’t believe that these women are actually homemakers but maybe their homemaker alter-ego will show for 1 day for a good cause.


PART 2. WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS WE WILL EMAIL YOU & WE WILL NEED 4 THINGS: (more info about these will be emailed once we receive your request)

  • A square shape photo of yourself vintage style hair & make-up waist up
  • A pin up name you will go by
  • The name of the baked good you will be making (homemade required)
  • Your $25 entry fee (an invoice will be emailed to you)
  • You must be 18 years old or over by July 16th 2016


We have a mandatory meeting for all contestants on June 4th (Saturday) at 6P in Kent, WA. This way we can go over details, meet each other, ask/answer any questions that may be on your mind. If you cannot attend this meeting you will not be able to participate in the pageant, it is mandatory.


Pin Up Contestants will attend the Car Show 4 Kids event in Auburn WA, July 16th rain or shine. This is an all day event we will need you there from 8:30A – 5P  Contestants are to be styled head to toe as cheese-cake/bubblegum/Suzy homemaker pin ups. In the morning we will take a pin up pageant group photo while everyone has fresh hair & make-up. Throughout the day contestants will be photographed candidly by Some like It Shot. Contestants will compete in the hula hoop contest & dessert eating contest before the end of the day to determine our queens. This is good old fashion fun for all. We personally believe it is a great girls day for friends or family to participate together.
