BOSSLEY Park's Melissa (surname withheld at request), aka "Belles B Ringing", claimed victory at the state finals of the Miss Pinup Australia competition at Blacktown Workers Club last week.
While the 33-year-old did not win a state title based on her score, she won a wildcard position into the national leg of the vintage pageant.
She will represent NSW in the Miss VaVaVoom section of the competition on August 2 at Hornsby RSL Club.
The category comprises women who have a voluptuous curvy body and are a modern dress size of 14+.
Entrants must dress, act and present themselves in true 1950s style.
Miss Bells B Ringing said she was thrilled.
"I am extremely excited to be going to the finals and also delighted my Miss Pinup journey is not yet over.
"I gave my all at the state finals and it was my first time on stage.
"I was a crowd favourite with many people after the show telling me how much they loved my routine and how they could not stop laughing at my comic take on them."
Miss Bells B Ringing said she would prepare for the national finals by changing her routines, and would include evening wear.
"I am ready to make certain changes and tweak outfits to maximise my performance."
There are eight categories in the Miss Pinup Australia competition: Miss Perfect Pinup, Miss Illustrated Pinup, Miss Classic Pinup, Miss VaVaVoom Pinup, Miss Prestige Pinup, Miss Neo Pinup, Mr Pinup and Miss Dolly Deb Pinup.
