Career Modifica

May started her pin-up modeling career in 2003 as one of the first Western Canadian models for Los Angeles-based modern pin-up website[1] and started burlesque dancing that same year. She appeared in Episode 31 of HBO's RealSex tv show on the Rebirth of Modern Pinup and was also a dancer in the Probot music video "Shake Your Blood" featuring Dave Grohl and Lemmy Kilmister. She has toured the USA and Europe extensively, and has appeared in a number of newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, New York Post, Shimmy Magazine, and Dynamite Magazine in Germany.

She designs her own line of vintage-inspired vegan accessories, which has been worn by celebrities like Dita Von Teese and Bernie Dexter, called Coquette Faux Furriers.[2] Her involvement with SuicideGirls and PETA[3] led to her being a featured model in PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ad campaign.

She also teaches classes on vintage pin-up styling and posing, which she photographs as well. The class was turned into a DVD.[4] and has been featured on NBC News[5] and The New York Times[6]
