Markee recreates the vintage pin-up style of Bettie Paige.

Bettie is a fashion inspiration for many people, especially in the Rockabilly, Retro, Goth and Vintage scene. She had a carefree attitude about herself, and embraced her curves; she made the female form something to be celebrated. She also made a lot of her own bathing suits and lingerie. This inspired a whole legion of crafty people to make clothes that fit them, instead of trying to follow what the trends told them. I've always loved Bettie because she wasn't afraid to be a bit different and stand out, she didn't feel the need to follow popular culture, instead she made her own.
