That's right. I'm having a competition. Sarah and myself are heading up to Sydney on saturday, and so I set to work finishing off my pinstripe ensemble.
As you can see, I couldn't even angles today.
THEN I was doodling and sunday was all OHAI WAT U DO. He's now purring with me while I wait for Doctor Who to start.
Ignore my trucker arms, it's just an angle thing. I swear.
ANYWAY, the contest.
There will be three prizes: First prize is a Susan Sto Helit skirt (which is, straight, but trailing at the back) and a toule-less bustle (because FUCK THAT) in either pinstripe or plain black (your choice!). The bustle will either be tie-on or sewn-on...depends what kind of day I'm having. I will probably also add details that mine didn't have, and it'll be better-made than mine.
Second prize will be a bustle with a full skirt on it (so you can wear just that, in the style of the Love Child Boudoir), in your choice of pinstripe and black (or maybe taffeta).
Third prize is the plain Susan Sto Helit skirt, in, again, pinstripe or black! I might also send some other goodies with the prizes, depending what I can find (socks, hairbows, scrap-material-goodies. all of that.)
How to enter!
To enter my competition, please comment on this post with your email address. To get a second entry, link to the competition in a blog post, and post that too. If you've been directed here by another blog, post what blog that is, so I can give them a little something, in some way, even if they don't win.
It will take me some time to make everything (it only takes a few hours to make the skirt, and a little longer to make the bustle, but I'll have to buy materials) and send them off. Money, although precious, is easy to come by when you work as you please, and where you please. Once it's over, I'll hop straight into it. Good luck!
