  1. I’d LOVE to win this prize and have a vintage makeover. Am struggling to decide which era I’d like as I love them all – but think I’d have to go for 50’s!

  2. I would love to have a vintage makeover and photo shoot in 1920s flapper style! Short bobbed hair and finger waves, dresses with dropped waistlines, cloche hats… yes, please! I’m used to wearing 50s clothes so this would be something very different for me!

    Hi there!! This is the prize of my dreams!!! I would love to win The Vintage Makeover. I am in love with the 50s, where curvy women were sexy and feminine, and men were gentlemen who were never seen in public without their hats. I cross my fingers that I win my 50s vintage makeover and that my dream comes true!!! Thank you so much, and keep up the fantastic work :))

    I would love, love, love to be made over into a 1940’s land girl or house wife! With a twist with my new traditional chest piece tattoo on show!❤❤❤❤❤

    An vintage 50’s style tattoo portrait would be amazing. It would be great to showcase Rachel Baldwin’s amazing work she’s been doing on my wedding sleeve I am having done at the moment. Plus a chance to get some more of my hidden at work tattoos out for a change.

  7. This is such an amazing prize! I’d love to do either shoots, the tattooed portrait one sounds like such a fun twist on pin up photography, plus I’m lucky enough to have some lovely work by some well know artists!
    Also I’ve always wanted to submit to tattoo magazines like total tattoo but have never had pictures done that I felt confident enough to send off, but seeing these beautiful ladies has inspired me!! Xxx
