Stop Staring! Presents Pin-Up Pageant and Cocktail Dress Fashion Show at Ink-N-Iron Festival

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2010) -  Stop Staring!, a leading designer of vintage inspired cocktail dresses and rockabilly creations, is proud to present one of the most anticipated pin-up pageants in the country, the Stop Staring! Pin-Up Pageant at the 7th annual Ink-N-Iron Festival this weekend aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.

It is the second year Stop Staring! has sponsored the Pin-Up Pageant, which attracts contestants from across the country and Europe and pays the highest cash prize awarded in a pin-up pageant, and the first year Stop Staring! will also be presenting their own fashion show.

"With 30 beautiful pin-ups from around the world showcasing the hottest vintage dresses and pin-up fashions, The Stop Staring! fashion show is guaranteed to be a huge hit at Ink-N-Iron," said Alicia Estrada, head designer and founder of Stop Staring! "The show will feature daywear, evening wear, sensual cocktail dress selections, bombshell dresses, flirty playsuits, sexy dress suits, and 50s inspired separates and bathing suits. This is a do-not-miss event!"

The Stop Staring! fashion show, which will take place in the Queens Salon on the Promenade Deck on Saturday, June 12 from 4pm to 5pm, is the perfect precursor to the Pin-Up Pageant, which takes place on the main stage on Sunday, June 13 from 4:30pm to 5:10pm.

At the Pin-Up Pageant 12 finalists will take to the stage to show off their sexiest pin-up attire and compete to win the top prize of $1500 cash. Each of the 12 contestants will receive the Ink-N-Iron Pin-Up Pageant Satin/Embroidered sash and a gift bag valued at $200 and become the Ink-N-Iron 2011 calendar girls.

The 7th annual Ink-N-Iron Tattoo & Kustom Culture Festival takes place this weekend, June 11 through June 13 aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. For more information, visit
