Sugar St Claire

Melbourne, Australia

Pinup, Milliner, Costume Designer, Writer, Performer, and Disability activist from Melbourne, Australia.

Sugar grew up falling in love with an era when good etiquette wasn’t just something your grandmother did, a song touched your heart and a good movie stayed with you for a lifetime - a wonderful place to visit, but as a Plus Sized, Queer, Disabled, Tattooed, woman, she wouldn't want to live there.  

Sugar found the pinup and rockabilly community on a whim and decided never to leave! She has met so many wonderful people through it and is grateful for it every day.

Holly Von Merlot, aka thatpinupwitch has been in the pin up community for over 10 years, honing her skills to perfection!

Fashion is her other creative outlet and she loves blending pin up with witchy, spooky styles. To be a pin up you do not need to fit into the standard pin up box. She's always got something on the go or running around with her kid and dog, trying to keep up!
