Rebels with a Cause...
More details about Catwalk for Charity IV have been released, along with these glorious pictures. Aww yeah...I just realized that my last three blog updates have consisted of amusing pictures of some of our favorite hockey players... (Speaking of which, the Team USA pictures that I posted earlier have made their way on HF Boards...and hilarity has ensued, and it's still going on. Check it out for yourself). Anyways, individual tickets for Catwalk go onsale October 12th. As most of you probably already know, it's 50s-themed this year, and the event is cleverly marqueed as "Rebels with a Cause"...get it? Like the James Dean movie, but they HAVE a cause because it's a fundraising event...yeah, I'm sure you needed me to explain it. I have to say that I approve of these pictures, and it should make for another entertaining night to see the guys all dressed up like these badass greasers...hellz yeaahhh. I also love the cars that took part in the photoshoot. Cars from the 50s just had a certain style to them that just screamed "cool". I remember a few years ago my dad's friend who collects cars picked me up in a 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville...I felt so awesome driving around in that baby.
So I'm pretty excited to dress up for this year's Catwalk...I know I have to get my Marilyn on and I WILL. I've already mentioned that I have a vintage 1950s cocktail dress that I am most likely going to wear, but wouldn't it be awesome if I could find a replica of this number?
It's from her film, Niagara, which was filmed in our very own backyard in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I would LOVE to find a replica of that dress somewhere online, but I also love my cocktail dress that I already own. Either way, I'm really excited to represent my lady. I wonder if I could get her famous walk down? Maybe after I have a few drinks in me, who knows what I could accomplish!
So I hope that everyone who is reading this who can, will attend. If my recap of last year's festivities won't convince you then I don't know what will...
So today between classes I went to training camp again and I stayed as long as I could for the scrimmage until I had to head back to Buff State for my good ol' drawing class (which was kind of a rewarding and frustrating class at the same time). I was pretty impressed with the turnout given that it was a weekday...more people started showing up towards the start of the scrimmage. I'm thinking about going to training camp tomorrow but that would mean that I would have to skip my Art History class... What say you? Art history or hockey? Hmm, such a difficult decision. I guess the Venus of Willendorf is just going to have to get by without me. When I left today, Team Khmylev was up 1-0, and from what I've read they won the scrimmage 2-0. Tomorrow I'll upload the pictures I took, I promise! The hockey will get a little more "serious" tomorrow when the Sabres play some preseason hockey against the Caps... even though it's only preseason I'm still excited. I'll get to hear Rick Jeanneret calling a game again. Plus, the regular season is only 17 days away now... Are you ready??
...looks like our captain is.
