CALLING ALL FANS!
The Shadow of the Bear production crew would like to ask your assistance in tracking down the perfect prom dresses for Rose and Blanche Brier!
Who can enter?
Any fans who are dedicated enough to go searching!
How do I enter?
1. Read the descriptions of the dresses below.
2. Grab your wallet and go hunting around in thrift stores, garage sales, boutiques, wherever you can think! When you find a dress, make sure that it is returnable (unless you don't mind owning it if it isn't chosen) and bring it home!
3. Take a picture of the dress and e-mail it to email@example.com
4. If your dress is chosen, we will give you a mailing address to ship it to.
UPDATE: The Tentative Deadline is May 30th.
The dresses must fit the colors and basic descriptions in the book. We can do some alterations, but the closer the dresses are to the descriptions, the better chance your dress will have of being chosen.
Blanche's dress should be between sizes 4 and 8.
Rose's dress should be between sizes 2 and 6.
The production has a limited fund. We'd like to spend no more than $15, preferably much less on each dress. Anything over this (including shipping) will need to be paid by the contestant.
The Grand Prize?
Two dresses, one for Rose and one for Blanche will obviously be featured in the film. The purchasers' names will appear in the credits under the costuming department for "Blanche's Prom Dress provided by" and "Rose's Prom Dress provided by"
Pictures of the dresses will be posted on this blog. Also, the winners will each recieve a copy of the DVD when it is released, signed by the cast and crew.
Runners up/Honorable mentions
Will get their finds displayed on this blog, and a special thanks will be given them on the movie credits (by name, if they wish). Although we cannot financially re-emburse them, if they are willing to cover the costs of shipping, we are more than willing to feature the dresses in the prom scene by having other actresses wear them.
Blue-Green or teal
Bodice covered with sequins or beads (can be added by production if necessary)
Long full skirt
Chiffon petels overlaying the underskirt
Purple sequins or beads
Short skirt (just below the knee)

The hunt is on!
