We all know I’m not exactly the most creative person on Earth. With words, I’m pretty good, but hand me anything and a glue gun/paint brush/sewing machine and I lose it. So when I was emailed asking to take part in the Chupa Chups Chuck’s Life Less Serious Champion Challenge, I was a bit hesitant, I mean, what was I going to do? After a while, I decided that a chuck doll and box of chupa chups was too much of an exciting deal to say no to, so I emailed away my acceptance. Today I received a giant brown box with the Chupa Chups symbol printed all over it. It contained a Chuck doll, 50 Chupa Chups, a Tshirt and instructions on how to enter.
I uhmed and ahhed before going to the gym to continue to think. While there, a Death Cab For Cutie (who were cooler when Seth liked them) song came on channel V with scenes from New Moon. That was it, I realised! Chuck already had random looking eyes, and Halloween is this week; I could make him into a vampire! Of course, having the idea and actually making it happen were two completely different things. I sat at my kitchen table for nearly an hour and a half unwrapping lollypops to get enough to make the cape. Of course, unwrapping them now means I have a ziplock bag full of blackberry Chupa Chups, just begging for someone to eat them. After the hilario commercial, I will post the finished product, and seriously, forget Edward Cullen, Chuck is the real sexy vampire. I’d let him bite me any day, especially if I gained his love of Chupa Chups instead of a love of blood…
And now we can all see why I failed art and basically failed textiles. Woo. Amazing talent, right here. Chuck still makes anything look stylish.
Good luck to whoever wins, some of the entries I’ve seen are amazing.
