Makeovers & Merchandise: Twinkie Chan, Kat Von D, Delicious Dames

I am sooooooo excited to tell you guys that I have many items for sale now at Kat Von D’s Wonderland Gallery in L.A., right next to her tattoo shop High Voltage. You can grab yourself some scarves, mitts, hats, brooches, hair clips, tons of stuff! Shop online or visit in person if you are in SoCal! You’ll even find the elusive Sushi Scarf there! There’s more in the shop than there is on the site.

The story behind this is that I know Marya, the gallery director at Wonderland, from when she was the Photo Director at Inked Magazine and put me in the “Inked People” section a few years ago. She has always been super sweet and super supportive of my work, and she also came to my book reading in L.A. where we met for the first time! I asked if she could take some fun snaps of my goodies in the shop.

 







AAAAAAAAND in other fun news, RELATED news, oddly, you can now view my pin-up makeover with DeliciousDames!. So Annie, part of my former sales team for Yummy You! Clothing, asked me last year if I was interested in participating in some pin-up makeovers that her friend Revecka was doing for her website. I am always game for trying new things (even though being on video terrifies me as I hate watching myself and think I look like an alien!), so I said yes! As it turned out, Revecka’s husband Khoi was doing the filming that day, and he is also a tattoo artist at High Voltage. So Revecka and Marya actually know each other. Small world!

I showed up to the makeover without doing my makeup or hair. Note: I am One of Those Girls who does not leave the house without eyeliner and eyebrows. No way no how. But usually when you show up to a photoshoot, you should do so with a clean face. I then learned we would be filming interviews “before” the makeover. Cue my panic!! I viewed this panic as part of the experience. A huge part of the Delicious Dames philosophy is embracing your own beauty and accepting all forms of beauty. This is a hard journey for many of us! But it was a really fun day after all. The Delicious Dames team is awesome, Revecka, stylist/art director/hostess, Jennifer Corona, MUAH, Shannon Brooke, photographer. They are all good friends, and you can really tell that they love each other and love what they do.

p.s. For those wondering, yes, we had to stuff tissue paper into the 2nd outfit :P

    • Twinkie Chan says:

      Thanks Ellyssa!!!!
      Re: the yarn, the photo they have up on the site is an old photo, actually, and is a Homespun cupcake. The one they have in the shop is actually Cascade 128.

  6. Jenny Quest says:

    It’s funny…. I had JUST looked up Kat’s Wonderland gallery the other day, wondering if/how they choose artists to show there! Congratulations- what an honor!! Also, I really love the Delicious Dames video- you look AMAZING, and those ladies seem so sweet and genuinely excited about what they do :) Hooray for all of these great opportunities coming your way! ♥

    • Twinkie Chan says:

      Thanks, Jenny! Yeah I don’t really know how they pick artists. I know another Etsy seller who sells to Wonderland, and I think that was because Kat bought something from her and became a fan of her work.

  7. Lauren K. says:

    how gorgeous you are!! :)Like an impersonated cupcake. Always hate to sound like a fan girl. But you are absolutely my favourite idol!!!

  11. AshleyDashley says:

    You looked uncomfortable to me…but absolutely gorgeous. Had no idea what rockin’ gams you were struttin’ with there lil’ momma!

  12. Maggi says:

    You look gorgeous! What a fun looking shoot!

  13. omg i love love love rockabilly and you look amazing!!

  14. Caz says:

    You look amazing :-D I would love to do something like that but not sure i’d have the guts! Ahhhh you’re so cool :-)

    • A couple years ago I said no to trying to get on HGTV because I was too scared to appear gross on video. I don’t know what possessed me to appear without makeup on video!! HAHahaha ;)

  15. Amy says:

    I like the beginning where you’re pretending to read a magazine all casual. Faker!

    You look pretty without makeup.

    It’s funny seeing you get a “sexy” makeover. It’s like a movie where the nerd takes off her glasses and becomes prom queen, dethrones the most popular girl in school, then teaches everyone a valuable lesson about inner beauty.

    • Yep, you caught me faking! We also shot that like four times. Acting is not in my future.

      I don’t think I do “sexy” very well. It was fun, though, stuffing my bra with tissue paper.

  16. OMG Twinkie Im so late reading your blog but you look amazing :) Im a fan of pin ups and you look so cute!!!! You have to do more of these photos.

    XOXO
    Happy Valentine your ciber friend Sylvette

  17. I love your photoshoot, lady!!! So fun! I’ve done a pin-up and a boudoir shoot(s) for my hubby, but I love how you did this for your business! So pretty!

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Haha thank you! Yeah, I normally wouldn’t do this, because, I have learned throughout the years, that I’m a terrible model and start feeling really weird when someone else is pointing a camera at me, but a friend of a friend asked if I wanted to do it, and I figured, hey why not! And in the process, made MORE friends! YAY!

  18. I feel uncomfortable when someone else is taking my photos, too. I tend to be more free and creative when I take my own photos… LoL. You’re a GREAT model and I’m so glad that you decided to do this. And like you said, you made more friends!
