We recently featured this Rockabilly Girl from Portugal in one of our inked girl galleries, “Inked Girls Gallery 67: With Portuguese Pin Up Girl Miss Candy Sue.” We also asked Miss Candy Sue why Rockabilly Style is a passion for her and she said;
– There are too many reasons for me why Rockabilly style is a passion, and some I can explain and others I can´t put into words because it’s a feeling that seems like it’s been inside of me since the beginning of my life. First of all I love the music and what it makes me feel like when I listen to it and how it makes me want to dance a lot. I love fashion from that time, and the ambience from the festivals and partys of Today. I don’t know how it was at party’s in the 50’s, but what I feel when I go to a party now it’s almost like I am in that time. I like that rebel attitude, the cars and the motorcycles.
Miss Candy Sue was also a former member of a Burlesque Company called Cais Sodré Cabaret. It was while in this company that the Rockabilly Lifestyle started to become a reality as she was surrounded by like minded people.
So keep your eyes out for this Portuguese Beauty of a Rockabilly Girl. We are sure we will be seeing and hearing more from her in the future. Perhaps a wonderful Portuguese recipe for our Cooking With A Pin Up Series. Now that sounds yummy :)
