Frocktober Day Thirty One


My last hurrah. Hooray!

Lots of photos for you today. Lucy Violet Vintage Honour Roll (thank-you's) tomorrow. 

Every fashion parade ends (or it did in those glorious technicolour flicks of the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's) with a beautiful bride walking down the catwalk. Usually she's surrounded by a bevy of pretty bridesmaids decked out in rainbow coloured frocks. Sometimes her dress 'morphs' into a gigantic wedding cake and she ends up standing on the top tier. The audience goes crazy, the orchestra revs up a crescendo, the girl gets her man, and it's over. A bit like Frocktober really...

So in honour of all those glamorous Hollywood model brides, my last Frocktober fashion parade (ahem!), and Halloween, I give you my
 
zombie bride! 
  I've got music to create a spooooky atmosphere
 
(I love this song. Listen to it loudly!)
 
 
  
 
All I can think of is -  this is how I'm going to look if I don't get my roots done! Now that is scary!
 
(make-up and photos by Annabel)
 
Even though this is my last hurrah, don't be afraid to sponsor me. Your donation will help fund research into developing an early detection test for ovarian cancer. Early detection is key if we want women (the women we love) to survive this insidious disease. Remember one in ten, people. That's one woman dying from ovarian cancer every ten hours! Please sponsor me here.
 
As I type my our Frocktober fund has raised a whopping
 
$1945.00!
 
WOW!
 
I'm lost for words...

p.s. thanks for your recent donations Susan, Jay, and Lea, and for purchasing the fifties frock Julianne x
 
 
 
Newsflash! Newsflash! Newsflash! Newsflash!
 
I just got home to discover that lovely Gillian (aka Librarygirl) has sponsored me again (that makes twice!) which means we've raised $ 2000.00. OMG I am so excited and so grateful! It means such a lot to me. All of your donations mean a lot to me, but to hit 2k, well, that's just spectacular! Thank-you Gillian x

  13. you must be so chuffed girl! I LOVE your Zombie bride! I'm going to the works Halloween do tomorrow and i'm doing a zombie nurse. But not the typical sexy 'I've come as a nurse but it's really just an excuse to wear next to nothing and chat up the heads of departments' I want it to be proper zombie!!

  14. amazing Kylie - so much effort and a great result! You've also made October a much more interesting time in the blogosphere! And as for the zombie bride, as my mother would say with a sigh (as we watched country brides emerge from the church looking, in my opinion, hideous), "ah, all brides look beautiful"!
