The Red Carpet -- You could Win...

I love watching the Red Carpet arrivals at the Oscars. I mean, I'm a designer so of course I love seeing the pretty dresses. Also, the Oscars tend to be a bit more classy and modest than the other award shows so there are less cringe moments.

Here at www.elenatintil.blogspot.com we are going to have our own red carpet event! On the afternoon of the 27th (OSCAR DAY!) I will do a post including my own "formal dress" which I'll be designing, as well as whatever YOU chose to wear! All you have to do is find or draw or take a picture of what you plan to wear and send it to me at theshadowofthebear [at] ymail [dot] com by February 26th! Only restrictions are that it can't be provocative and I'll need a name of some sort to include with it! And this isn't by any means limited to girls, guys are welcome to submit their snazzy attire too!

Not a designer, but want something original? Well I've got a special treat for you! One lucky person who comments on this post is going to get chosen (by random drawing) to receive a custom sketch of the formal wear of their dreams! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before the 22nd and you could win!

Want an extra chance to win? Post a link to this post on your facebook or blog and then comment again to let me know you did so! I'll enter your name in the drawing again for every reference you make!

Finally, all of this got posted today because... *drumroll please* I just put up the poll for Best Costume Design! So head over to the right sidebar and vote!

I LOVE IT! Great idea. I have had my dream "Oscar" dress in mind for years! It's actually on an I Love Lucy episode titled "The Fashion Show". It's long, sparkly, swooshy skirt, and sooooo...so...so amazing! It just needs a high back is all. :P

Problem is I don't know how to get a pic of it. Humph.

That is an awesome dress design! My Mom and I are making a dress that same color for my little sister! And this is a cool idea too.:)
