It's November First, Lipstick Piggies. That means only twelve more hours to get your entry into the Sarah Palin Costume Contest!
Send me a photo of yourself before midnight tonight, in your Vice Presidential Glory, and let me lavish you with praise and prizes!
Now of course I dressed up as Miss Barracuda for Halloween yesterday, but it was just for my own debauchery... I won't be entering my own competition. If I can inspire you by my amateur hour theatrics, I'll be honored.
The entries are already pouring in. I've never had so much fun with my email IN box. I can see that I have to devise a prize for EVERYONE, because you are all so fun and imaginative.
I have some questions for the contestants:
What was the most satisfying part of your get-up?
Has your sex life improved by Palin satire?
What kind of reactions have you had to your costume?
Will you be wearing your Sarah-Drag to the polls on Tuesday?
I'll be the first to admit, I lost my wiglet last night. My tiara shone brightly. I filled my SuperSoaker up with bloody-red water and shot anyone who looked like an animal on the streets of Santa Cruz... like fish in a barrel, dude.
I made the bikini in two hours, from ripping open the package to putting it on. I highly recommend Burda pattern 8038 for a last-minute Sarah Palin showstopper. I went to the Salvation Army as well, wearing the bikini, and tried on a bunch of fake fur coats, finding a real winner (mink, size 3X) for twenty bucks. This sucker is toasty.
The hardest thing to make was my sash... who knew that beauty pageant finery was such hard work?
I'll review and contact all the entries over the weekend and make my decision before the election.
Don't be shy, BE SARAH!
UPDATE: Here are our lovely winners.
