Congratulations to our first Pin Up of the Month for 2012, Ayr Loxide! Ayr is a scientist, model and blogger based in Melbourne Australia. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Medical, Forensic and Analytical Chemistry and post graduate qualifications in Forensic Medicine. Ayr is an analytical chemist in a toxicology laboratory and a part time pinup/alternative/steampunk model. Ayr has been modeling since mid 2010 and has a classic vintage look but with her own twist.
Ayr has modeled for numerous designers and publications. She prefers to do her own hair and makeup for the majority of her photoshoots as her 33 inch long dreadlocks can be tricky to style. Ayr writes about her adventures in science, modeling, lipstick and life on her blog.

Straight from Ayr's Lips: It doesnt matter what you wear on the outside, you can still be a pinup doll underneath. I wear a white laboratory coat every day but I make sure I always carry a bit of my pinup lifestyle with me, that only I can see- whether it is my favourite brooch, scarf or a cheeky hint of my seamed stockings.
