Yummy411: 2008 Politically Pretty FOTD Challenge

From the time I saw the Democratic National Convention, I felt pride and honor. To express that my way, I wanted to do an FOTD (face of the day). I got so wrapped up into the program, I never did it, LOL. So when B of Clumps of Mascara approached me with the idea of another FOTD challenge, it felt perfect to settle on the theme of Politically Pretty! The last challenge beauty bloggers and readers participated in was the 80's FOTD Challenge. We had much success and I know this one will rock as well!

In the wake of one of the most historic presidential elections ever, we challenge you to a political-esqe FOTD. Whether you want to represent suffrage/voting rights, a party of your choice, democracy or just the political times... interpret that theme in an FOTD!

Here are the rules:

1. Leave your name either here or over at Clumps of Mascara so that we know you are participating.

2. All participants will post their FOTD on Friday, October 3, 2008 as well the links to the sites of other participants (which will be up on this site as well as Clumps of Mascara). Make sure you are registered to vote!

3. Don't forget to include the details and explain what your sentiments/reasonings were behind the look.

4. There is no actual prize, but lots of camaraderie and blog and reader love in the spirit of voting!

What if I don't have a blog?
No problema! You can still participate. Of course you would have to email your photo(s) and statements to us by October 2, 2008. And then we would showcase them in a separate post on October 3, 2008.

What if I am not in the United States?
Still no us an FOTD sportin' your country's colors and/or designs. Don't forget to tell us what everything means so we can learn a little somethin' too.

So, get out your brushes AND VOTE!!!!!

In the spirit of this challenge, look what Tyra has already done. She was inspired too! Sorry if I'm late on this. It's awesome anyway!
