The Fashionate Traveller Giveaway!

On 7th October 2009, I started my blog The Fashionate Traveller at blogspot. I’d been blogging for years already on Live Journal (since late 03), but using it more as a personal journal. With TFT I wanted to explore alternative culture, especially fashion and nightlife, not only in Australia but in Asia and beyond.

Well, I got to 100 followers on my blogger account last week, and decided it was time to celebrate!! Woohoo!!

I’ve now made the move to my shiny new home here at WordPress, and really need to get this place a JUMPIN’!  So I want to throw a little block party, as it were, and invite lots of people to join.  Cue…the Fashionate Traveller Giveaway!

Prizes are in the style of the Fashionate Traveller: ie ‘out there’, alternative, gothic, and Tokyo/Shibuya/Harajuku fashion style – big top hats, big flouncy tutu skirts, luscious false lashes, unusual coloured lipstick…  Like the sound of that? Read on…

What you will win:

First Prize

1. A 19th Century style Top Hat, as you’ve seen me wearing in my icon, and at Lunarmorph recently. I have several sizes, so you’re sure to get one that fits. Perfect for that Formal, Aristocrat, Dandy, Steampunk or Victorian outfit you’ve been planning.

2. From Kikirara Shoten herself, a Dangerous Nude /Kera collaboration tutu skirt as seen on the Dangerous Nude website


And as modelled by me with a purple petti underneath. If you’re brave (and have good legs), wear it by itself! It is this colourway, black with purple/lilac bows, that you will win. Value = 5,775 yen, or ~$70 US or AUD.

3. Fabulous fake lashes from the well-known Diamond Lash – you get FIVE pairs in one!! It’s the thickest, most out there of the violet pack series, number DL51153

3. Lime Crime Lipstick in either D’Lilac or My Beautiful Rocket. One is a pale lilac, the other a vibrant orange. Winner gets to choose!

With Lime Crime, you get creamy opaque lipstick with great coverage and moisture. I love the brightness!


Second Prize

1. False lashes from Daiso – 2 pairs in the pack

2. Lime Crime lipstick (remaining colour from choices above)


Third & Fourth Prizes

1 pair Angel Cute false lashes each
