Do I need a Pinup Name?

There are lots of excellent reasons to create a Pinup name ranging from personal to professional. 

Personal -

for fun,

for entering competitions,

for publications

Blogging, Instagram and other social media - this could become a professional endeavour 


Persona/alias - writing (pen name) for publications. Paris Peacock

Roller derby name

Performer name

Like a Pinup name, a performer name is a big part of an identity used to help maintain personal privacy and aid with promotion. 

For example - 

Ivy Fox

Sugar St Claire

Lucky Dip

Dottie Sin-Clare

Business name

There are many Pinups in our community who use their names as or in their registered business name and have built a professional profile around it. 

For example -

Sugar St Claire Milliner and Costumier

Lady A Broad

Victory Violet

Velvet-Rose's Pinup Dressing Room (Miss Dale Velvet-Rose)

Miss Lily White - fashion designer

So no, you don't need a pinup name, but there are many excellent reasons to have one.
