Ruby Rotten

I can do anything you can do… in heels 😉


Hometown: Niles, MI

For starters, I am either a Ruby or I’m Rotten that depends on you 😉 . I am a member of the Michigan chapter of Pinups for Patriots, work as a General Manager for a movie theater company, also work part-time as an event princess for Michiana Princess. When I’m not traveling you may find me around the downtown Niles area cruise-ins, or roaming around the antique malls, record store, or soda shop!

What got you interested in pin-up culture?

Where do I begin? The style, the class, the cars, the music, the feeling of it, the sisterhood of it! These women are truly like none that I’ve ever met. Strong, fearless, kind, empowering, and the list goes on. Whats not to love?!

Do you have any hobbies?

Music! Going to shows, building my record collection, building my vintage clothing collection, antique shopping, tattoos, drinking coffee (only a hobby because I do it so much..)

What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?

Before my first pin-up contest I messaged Bernie Dexter for advice and she said “Just have fun, just have fun!!” On the surface that seems too simple for advice, but really it is that simple. Don’t get sucked into any of the anxiety or other fears or madness of it and just enjoy it! Just have fun!!
