April Week Three

Hello, Fag Enders! Hope you're all enjoying April. We're back this week with some more fashion prompts, namely a trip through the decades with Buffy's bright and beautiful, eclectic and, at times, slightly weird wardrobe. Piccies under the cut...

Buffy rocks it out...Collapse )

... but also, a poll! Because there's no point doing fashion if we can't express random partisan opinions. Enjoy!

Smarten up, fagenders. It's Fashion and Fabric month!

Have a video:

March Poll

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST FOR INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ANSWERING THE POLL!


The poll contains all the suggestions from last month's poll. We have also added suggestions from earlier polls and made up a few more to make up the numbers.

Pick which theme you would like to see us feature for APRIL. As usual, we are not going to explain what each theme is; they may or may not be what you think! In the box beneath the main poll, we’d like you to suggest the theme(s) YOU would like to see for MAY.

These suggestions will then form next month’s poll in a mixed up kind of way* along with at least one other suggestion that the mods will throw in themselves. In the event that we have less than 10 suggestions, the mods will fill in the rest to make up the numbers. If your theme suggestion isn’t picked, then you are welcome to suggest it again in other polls.

Remember: your suggestions for themes should be broad so that it’s easy for us to make up 20 prompts. For instance, ‘teacup’ is too narrow, but ‘Alice in Wonderland' works (more or less). Please expand on your suggestion in the comments to this post.

* We reserve the right to reject, tweak or combine any suggestions that are unsuitable, inappropriate for everyone or unworkable for us in any way. This might be because the suggested theme is a) too narrow and we can’t think of 20 prompts, b) too similar to a recent theme, c) because we don’t understand your suggestion or d) because it’s just plain unpleasant (i.e. sexist, racist, homophobic etc).

The poll will probably close around 12.00 GMT, (i.e. when I remember), on Monday, 31st March 2014. If there is another tie, the mods will choose the theme to do first from the winners and the other winner(s) will follow the month(s) after and there will be no poll for that month(s).

Onto the good stuff:

Poll #1962622

Thank you for your time.



P.S. Again, if anyone would like to volunteer to be a guest prompter for a month, let us know in the comments. The mods would still do the posting and will have to approve all prompts set, but we would like think others can have a go if they want to!

March Week Four

I wish... I wish...

I wish I was rich, thin and pretty!

But then Djinn are tricksy. I might get turned into something I really don't want to be Paris Hilton (even if I don't think she is that pretty), and hey, I might not be any of these things, but I'm still cool, right?

Anyway, everyone is always wishing for something - musicians included., so this week week we have a bunch of songs wishing for all sorts of stuff. I wonder if any of them ever got their wish?

As usual, trying to cover as many tastes as possible:

1. Radiohead - Bullet Proof… I Wish I Was
2. Ellie Goulding – Wish I Stayed
3. Simple Minds - I Wish You Were Here
4. Scheer - I Wish You Dead
5. Sophie B Hawkins - Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover

Plus, the second in the occassional series of 'scenes from Boggy's life' that seems to amuse quinara, I have a fun, but pointless, poll for you:

Poll #1961658
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 4

Which of these bands has Boggy seen live?

View Answers
Radiohead
3 (27.3%)
Ellie Goulding

Simple Minds

Scheer

Sophie B Hawkins
