Kilt Photo Contest
Things Celtic is pleased to announce a "Show Off Your Kilt Photo Contest".
Here's how it works; please read carefully:
- Send us a picture of yourself wearing your favorite kilt. This can be any kilt; doesn't even have to be one you bought at Things Celtic. Traditional kilt or modern kilt! Send your photo to email@example.com, with "kilt photo contest" in the subject line. Please be sure to include your full name, phone number, email address, and what category you'd like to enter.
- There are four categories: "Funniest", "Best Formal Look", "Renn Faire" and "Unusual Location". Be creative, but please keep the pics "safe for work", okay? ;)
- We'll upload the entries to photo albums on our Facebook page. Then, our Facebook friends get to vote on the winner of each category! Winner will be determined by the number of "likes" each photo receives.The photo with the most "likes" in each category at the end of the contest wins.
- The winner of each category will be awarded a $20 Things Celtic gift certificate.
- Again, use your imagination! Ladies, don't feel left out - you can enter this contest, too. If not a traditional kilt, send us a photo of yourself wearing a Scottish kilted skirt.
- The contest is open now, through St. Patrick's Day (Mar. 17, 2011). We'll tally the votes and announce the winners on March 18, 2011.
We're looking forward to seeing our friends in all their kilted glory! Good luck!
Down With Pants!

Matt Newsome, one of the early adopters of the box pleat style in his kilts, is holding a raffle on behalf of the Scottish Tartans Museum in North Carolina. For $5 / ticket, you can get a chance to have a hand-sewn box-pleat kilt made to your measurements come June, when the drawing is held.
I have the pleasure of owning one of Matt's kilts, and it is truly fabulous. I've bought my tickets, but I think the museum is a good enough cause that I should spread the word as widely as possible.

ember999 asked me for a photograph of what I'm wearing to class today, so here it is. Keep in mind that this picture was taken with my cell phone camera, in a dimly lit apartment, and that's lens flare on the front of my kilt, not a spot. Oh, and I was just out of the shower; I don't wax my hair back.
I'm thinking the vest may not truly go; I might want a more high-buttoned model, such as an Argyle style vest. Your opinion?

I hope this doesn't push anyone's spam buttons, but if you're looking
for a heavy duty hanger which will hold up to a 50" Workman's or a full 16oz traditional easily, I've had some custom made for my shop. 20 inches wide, with 4 strong metal clips. They've been selling very well in the shop, so we've now put them up on the website:http://www.thingsceltic.com/store/search.php?keyword=hangers
We'll also be updating the kilt information page for the store later this week. Stay tuned.

I may change my mind about being a Postal Carrier/Clerk if this uniform would get approved. Who knows I do have the legs for it since I wear a Utilikilt now. Current Mood: contemplative
