Reader's bra poll


Hey all. The steel bra is done and delivered to the auction organizers.

The Bra art auction will take place on Saturday, August 1, 2009 at 4 p.m. at the Unitarian-Universalist Church on Easy Street (no kidding!) in Pittsfield, Maine. For more information, contact Sharon Mack at sharonkileymack@hotmail.com. I expect that there will be something set up soon to handle silent bids made in advance of the auction. Contact her if you want to learn more about it.

I received more than 60 suggestions for names for this marvelous creation. Laura and I have whittled that list down to five finalists, and we now present them to you for your consideration. Leave a note in the comments section regarding your favorite. The final choices are:

Brahilda

Gladiatrix

Iron Maidenform

Bra Templar

Bra Hallah

I look forward to seeing how this all shakes out. Also, here are some additional pictures of the bra from various angles. There is nothing but metal and paint in this thing. No plastic, no glue, nothing but sheet metal, bits of iron, some welding wire and paint. I am now half-tempted to make some kind of g-string to go with it. Note I said HALF tempted. I still have other stuff to do...

I'm torn between Iron Maidenform and Gladiatrix, but I think IM is winning.

Are those stainless steel washers?

Because I am doing some work on my boat, and of course (as usual) I need more stainless steel washers. You can never have too many of those things.

The work of art has reminded me I have to go to the hardware store....
