She entered the Miss Pinup Australia competition to overcome her fear of being on stage and to fulfill her love of vintage fashion.
At the final of the competition on Saturday, September 30, local rural fire fighter Pam Sparre was named Miss Harmony 2017.
Pam, or Missy Love as she is known on stage, joined all of the other finalists from across the country for the grand finale at the Paddo RSL in Sydney and said she couldn’t find the words to describe her experience.
“I am absolutely physically and emotionally drained but wow, what a great night last night was,” she posted on her Facebook after the competition.
“The whole eight month journey has just been an amazingly positive experience and I’ve gained and learnt so much on a personal level.
“To be part of such a beautiful group of ladies or sisterhood that consistently support and lift each other up is truly a beautiful thing in this day and age.
“I’d completely recommend anyone who is interested in self empowerment and self discovery to take this journey.”
Pam said she was thrilled to me sashed Miss Harmony.
“I’m also still over the moon to be crowned the national title of Miss Harmony 2017 which represents the most personal growth over the season, giving 100 per cent, getting others involved and completely embracing the journey.
“I love this experience so much I’ll definitely be paying to forward and sticking around to help out future seasons when I’m needed.”
Emi Belle was crowned overall Miss Pinup 2017.
Pam said she first fell in love with pinup after doing a photoshoot last year. The Grose Vale rural firey said she loves all that Miss Pinup is about.
“I’ve always had a love of the classic beauty and fashion from bygone eras and flirted with vintage on occasion but never truly embraced it until I decided to take the plunge and do a Hollywood Glamour photo shoot with Boogie Bop Dames one year ago.
“I was hooked instantly and after hearing about the annual Miss Pinup Australia Competition I decided to enter, especially considering its all about empowering women and self growth.
“I’ve learnt so many new skills and connected with some of the most positive, beautiful humans.
“It was definitely a struggle in the beginning but through this self growth journey with 10 other amazing supportive ladies from around Australia, and truly talented mentors, I am realising I can do anything.”
