Three hundred fifty five days into my Project 365 and two cameras later, I finally have a dSLR.
About two weeks ago, I joined fizzer.ph‘s first/Twilight contest: take a Twilight-themed picture of yourself, make it your primary photo on fizzer, and get friends to vote for your photo. Up for grabs was a Canon 450D + kit lens.
I was so in.
The photo I submitted:
You can’t see it cos it’s small but I’m actually ~*~sparkling~*~ heh. I dusted my face with some shimmery bronzer I’ve had for ages (good thing I didn’t throw it out).
With about 12 days left in the competition, I wasted no time campaigning for myself. I got a little over 400 stars in less than 24 hours! I had to start over, though, as my initial photo needed some editing but I got those votes back (and more!).
To everyone who signed up and voted for me, to everyone who helped spread the word, to everyone who got their friends to vote for me: I am very very thankful. You d00dz have no idea how much I appreciate it. I am a very giddy girl now hrhrhrhr. I can’t wait for Wednesday night (start of the holidays, end of my job search LOLJK) so I can finally sit down and spend some quality time with Baby Girl. I want and need to learn everything about her!
(Yes, I name my things. Yes, my 450D’s name is Baby Girl. My Powershot Pro1 is named Bad Boy and the boyfriend’s dSLR is named Big Boy. They both needed a little sister.)
I look like a gremlin. Christian from fizzer handing me the box!:

Today’s photo is a cliche:
Thank you, everyone (♥♥♥♥♥♥♥) and thank you, fizzer!
