Please don’t hate me for my tiara.
When you have a custom job like this one, you really do get a level of quality that just isn’t available from your average fine jeweler.
But I am nothing if not generous.
And also curvalicious.
So when I published my tiara schematics, there was much coveting. And jockeying.
I’m not afraid to use the word. There was actual jockeying.
It did my heart good, frankly.
So it became clear that Queen Lori needed a court.
Not just any court.
Not some fawning, yes-your-highness, brown-nosing monstrosities in velvet.
I need attitude.
I need humor.
I need some serious showmanship.
There will be no boring barons, no dusty dukes.
I want flash and bling. I want snap, crackle and… Yes, I’ll say it…I want pop.
So bring it, babes!
Here are The Official IPoMP Courtly Audition Rules.
Leave a comment telling me:
1. Your amazing mysterious hidden talent, and
2. A tantalizing piece of juicy court gossip. And for heavens sake don’t let reality get in your way! (Read the tags for guidelines.)
If you want to add other enticements, you go right ahead.
I want to hear it all!
What’s a court without scandal?
I will select THREE (3) courtiers.
Winners will be selected by Distinguished Committee (also known as Himself, Nimbus and Topaz) and announced Friday morning…complete with portraits by YOURS TRULY.
In your honor, there will be custom IPoMP Portraits rendered in Paint of you in your Courtly Regalia.
Because what’s the point in entering a contest if there’s no prize?
So have at it people. Who wants to boogie down with Her Royal Highness?
Also, I would also like to extend loving thank you’s to three amazingly sweet, lovely and generous bloggers who in the past week awarded me the Stylish Blogging Award. The vivacious and beautiful Katie from Sluiter Nation, the ever gracious and eloquent Nicole from 40DaysOf, and the oh so charming and funny Jennifer from Midwest Momments. Ladies, you made my week and I love you dearly. And no, you do not get any advantage in the audition.
