I went in a Pinup competition on Friday night, and decided to make my little outfit!
Here's some photos I got my husband to take when we got home ((we left the show at 10.30pm, but had to drive to the otehr side of Brisbane to pick up our son from his Aunty + Uncle's - they were babysitting. It was 1.33am by the time I got to bed! HATE night roadworks))
((not a very flattering pose.lol))
It's a playsuit, with a halterneck a white contrast band and a white ribbon. On the butt is a loveheart trimmed in lots of lace!
It was supposed to be strapless, but when I was drafting the pattern, I completely forgot about taking out the 1.5cm gape dart, so when I put it all together the boobies were a tad too big and stuck out funny! So I had to quickly sew a ribbon to it to keep it on and in.
I made a matching hair bow and small bow ring ((which I gave to a gorgeous girl selling hair accessories when she gave me one of her wares because she thought I was cute!))
by the way, I didn't come anything! ahahhahaha.
I was supposed to be 4th, the 'judge's choice' but when the announced it they said "the girl in the shorts, Max California!" and looked at the girl in the denim shorts!
So she walked up and accepted the prize and I just laughed and mouthed to the audience, "I'm Max"
she stood beside me and was very embarassed and tried giving me the prize, but I knew she was embarassed. The prize wa pasties. I knew I could make my own if I wanted to, so I just said to her, "No hun, it's ok. I've got a husband and baby, I'm not going to be using them!"
poor girl, lol. Anyway, I got some pasties anyway when i got off the stage! Hurrah!
that's me with my arms up trying to get attention. lol. No it didn't work.
The girl with the dark hair and the dress, next to me, is my friend Liz. She didn't get a place either! RIPPED OFF
This one was taken while I was prancing around posing and trying to fill up time! I had a blast, but I was SO NERVOUS
