Dance to The New Voodoobeat.
One may not think of the word voodoo being associated with rockabillypin-up, but instead with dead chickens and little dolls that look like they’re being used as pin cushions. Voodoobeat is an online store, based in Germany, that sells alternative style fashion and accessories.

A rockabella may hear the word accessory and get excited over the thought of 1950 inspired earrings, but these accessories are something a man would usually shout about. Of course, cars and motorcycles aren’t just toys for boys anymore. Voodoobeat, offers rockabilly fashion and accessories, but they’re definitely not what vintage shoppers are expecting.
They offer rockabilly style belt buckles, stickers, cups, bags, calenders, and even post cards. What really separates Voodoobeat from other online rockabilly stores is their main option for clothing, tee shirts. The image of tee shirts being used in retro fashion would probably cause a pin-up girl to turn her head away from the idea.
Voodoobeat offers a vast selection of women tee shirts, catering to the Rock N’ Roll style of rockabilly fashion. Tee shirts imprinted with cute and sick designs of skulls, swallows, roses and guns, a single tee could go with a multitude of possible rockabilly outfits. Just adding a little imagination can go such a long way with Voodoobeat’s designs. A rockabella will also find Voodoobeat signature tee shirts, bearing the shop’s name in alternative designs. Definitely a Voodoobeat staple in their collections.
Voodoobeat tee shirts look awesome paired with short skirts, tight black capris, leather jackets, high heels, leather boots, and tons of different accessories. The image Voodoobeat creates with their tee shirts, is one of a true Rock N’ Roll era. Riding motorcycles, having bonfires on the beach, dancing the jive to Elvis songs and just having fun. Whether it be bowling or seeing a drive-in movie with a sweetheart.
With Voodoobeat’s extensive inventory, a rockabilly lady can shop for the men and/or children in her life, trick out her own car with rockabilly metal badges, shrunken heads that can hang and sway from the rear view mirror, buy gear levers, create cute ensembles and not break the bank. Now that’s unbelievable like voodoo.
As a makeup artist and designer who has worked with a variety of models and burlesque performers, Bernie is truly passionate about these eras and strives to offer clothing that is made to suit women who feel the same way.
In the pin up fashion section at Bernie Dexter Clothing, you’ll find artistic dresses designed to create an hourglass silhouette with a classic 1940s and 1950s style.
There is a wide variety of pants, shorts, skirts, tops, dresses, playsuits, and rompers available in bright contrasting colors, fresh florals, pretty plaid and paisley prints, and cute and classic polka dots and leopard print.
In the dress section you’ll find plunging halters and flowing skirts below a-line cuts, as well as sexy pencil skirts for the perfect pin up shape and silhouette. The classic pin up dresses can be found in virtually any color or print, and can be easily dressed up or down for a picnic in the park, a day in the office, or an evening out dancing.
For something a little more casual, pair one of the Bernie Dexter Clothing tops, such as the Puff Sleeve Ginger Top, with a cute pair of pedal pushers for a casual and slimming style.
The knotted shirt and high-cut pants will give you the look of a true pin up dame. If you’re looking to go full-blown pin up girl, their playsuits and rompers are just what you need for that cheeky Marilyn Monroe look.
Throughout the past decade, pin-up clothing has made a serious comeback in terms of popularity. Designed to channel the sexy styles of pin up girls of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, pin-up clothing incorporates feminine playsuits, high-cut shorts, low-cut halter tops, fitted corsets, sexy pencil skirts and ruffled, lacy flowing skirts into many looks.
Curvy hips, plunging cleavage and bold confidence are all important parts of pin-up clothing as well. One reason these styles are so popular is because women of all ages, shapes and sizes can pull the styles off. Whether you’re an XXS or an XXL, pin-up clothing will enhance your natural assets and embrace your femininity rather than trying to hide flaws and turn you into a carbon copy of the woman next to you. No two pin up icons look alike, so if you’re going for the pin-up clothing look you’ll want to maintain your individuality as well. Bettie Page, Bernie Dexter and Marilyn Monroe were all known for being fierce, confident, feminine and unique, and so should you.

When you think “Pinup Girl” the first though that comes to mind may be of those scantily clad vixens posed provocatively in Snap-On Tool Calendar pages or the unforgettable American fetish pinup Bettie Page.
It is quite true that the original pinup models were the sex symbols of their day and that their images gave happiness, hope and inspiration to the G.I.’s during World War II, but there is much more than sleazy-easy sex appeal to the pinup style. After all, glamorous and talented actresses in the 1930s and 1940s like Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich were considered pin up girls just as much as Jeanne Russell, Lana Turner and Betty Grable were, and Bette Davis’ personality is what really made her gorgeous.
Pinup girl style today looks back to the idealized glamour of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, but is inextricably linked today with burlesque shows, rockabilly music and custom cars. Modern cheesecake ladies combine their vintage outfits with tons of tattoos and hair dyed in primary colors and may even decorate their home in retro designs to complete their modern pinup girl lifestyle.
Fearless and modern with no qualms about enhancing her natural assets, pun most definitely intended, a pinup girl has confidence in her natural form, and takes pride in the grooming and formality necessary to achieve the pinup look. Sharing their strong feminine identity with the world, modern pinup ladies take the old styles a few steps forward and showcase bad-ass jewelry and patterns within their look like skulls, tattoo flashes or suggestive red cherries and barbed wire on top of their heavy ink.
A pinup girl today rejects the modern fashion trend that encourages unhealthy stick-thin women who would rather die than have a muffin top to keep on exercising and dieting in order to fit into H&M designs. Instead, she buys her clothing from designers and boutiques like Starlets and Harlots, Modemerr or Bettie Page Clothing and ‘structures her assets’ with corsets from Bibian Blue and exquisite lingerie from purveyors such as Kiss Me Deadly and Secrets in Lace. She steps out in style each day of the year and never for a moment regrets the figure she was born with.
