The tiny, sparkly bikini
Welp, my competition bikini has arrived.
I had a really hard time spending the $100+ that the typical suit costs. This is my first show, and I want to get a feel for the scene before I commit to a really expensive suit.
I don’t even remember what Google query combination my friend Sarah and I came up with, but somehow we found badkitty.com. Yeah, that’s a real website. And I thought it was weird getting a package from sinfulshoes.com… the mailman has to think I’m working in a saucy trade.
My solution to save $$$ is to glue crystals onto this bad boy mahself. I picked up 600 Swarovski crystal elements at Jo-Anne Fabric (coupons on the free iPhone app!) and spent a Sunday afternoon gluing away at my buddy Geoff’s apartment.
I finished the top and, I must say, it looks very … sparkly.
Total cost? $75 including the suit, crystals and glue. Pow.
