The Tiki-Takular Surf Party & Car Show was at the end of June. Negligent in my photo taking and recent blogging would be the understatement of the week.
So, at the end of June, my friends and I all headed to the Swimsuit Contest at the aforementioned event. I donned my lovely 1950's Rose Marie Red swimsuit (which fits more like a playsuit), vintage faux pearls, hair done in overdone miniature curls, and sky high red heels.
The event was relatively unattended due to the huge wildfires we were having in Colorado. Many girls that were registered in the contest didn't attend. One girl not being there is a drop out or a fluk but multiple girls not being there is a side effect of the largest wildfire in Colorado history less than five miles away from the event.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I came in second. The contest was based on audience applause and I went up against a local lady that was well into her 60's. What is a girl to do?
On with a few brief photos.

I do hope that the upcoming swimsuit competition goes better. I think it will.
