Girls competing for the MOST CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI must hand construct their own bikini, using ANY materials they want.  'Commercially made bikinis' are unacceptable for the MOST CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI Contest (however, contestants may 'slice up' a commercially made bikini and use bits and pieces of a manufactured bikini if they want as part of their creation).  Contestants are challenged to come up with something 'original' for the 'MOST CREATIVE' TEENY BIKINI Contest!

Contestants that wish to compete for the MOST CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI must model in their own design for two hours prior to the contest and must wear their creation during the judging at 4:00PM.

Hey Alisyn; come on out!  We would love to see your creative idea.  Your creation can be any kind of 'Bikini' you want for the MOST CREATIVE Contest - as long as it is NOT a commercially made swimsuit (I suppose you could always slice an old one up though...).  You may use ANYTHING, any kind of material or combination of things you want to use to make it!  Challenge yourself.  Put your thinking cap on and show us what you got!

Or

You can simply enter the Bikini Contest by wearing a bikini made by anyone, 'store bought' or purchased online.  The choice is yours!

BTW: Fireworks will be in the sky over my area, both Disneyland and Angel stadium will have HUGE displays after dark.

Please bring your business cards to hand out to the attending photographers, you will probably book some shoots at later dates with some of the guys that will be at the pool party.

Also: If you have time - after the TEENY BIKINI Contest, I am allowing models to book 'Private' one on one photo sessions with interested photographers so the girls can earn some extra money.

I've already had two photographers sign up tonight and its only been posted a few hours!

These three lovely models came out from L.A. to join us at last years 2nd Annual Fourth of July Pool Party and BBQ.  Note: Their swimsuits were HAND MADE, by 'Cafe Crochet' featuring a red monokini on Rikki, the bikinis are on Erica and Tynie.

Hey Erin;

We certainly would love to have you join us! 

Are you going to compete in the TEENY BIKINI Contest?  If so, you can either wear a TEENY BIKINI you already have or you can make an original one out of any materials you want to use and compete for the BIG Prize in the MOST CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI category.

Either way -  we're looking forward to seeing you on the FOURTH OF JULY afternoon!  Its going to be a good time for everyone.

Here is an example of a CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI.  The bikini is made from materials found around the beach and then put together.  This is NOT a commercial bikini, made by a professional swimsuit manufactuer.

By showing this idea, hopefully it will serve as inspiration to the models interested in the MOST CREATIVE TEENY BIKINI contest on the FOURTH of JULY and spark them to come up with something original to help them win the 200.00 CA$H prize.

I got three seashells and then made small holes in them with a cordless drill.  I ran fishing line through the holes and tied the larger shells onto the model, cutting off the excess fishing line after it was on.  Then I tied on a few strings of smaller seashells over the fishing line, to create the appearance that the small strands of shells were actually holding up the larger shells used for the top and bottom of this bikini.  It didn't cost much to make nor did it take a lot of time to put together.  Its a simple design using basic materials.  Valerie Whitaker 'rocked' the bikini in this photograph, taken in Laguna Beach, California.

Hey Ed, we haven't seen you in a while.  Come on down and join us on the Fourth of July!  Bring your CANON camera (there will be lots of 'Artillery' at the Pool Party and TEENY BIKINI Contest!).

Here is one of the models that attended last year's event.  She is standing on our 'mini-beach' in the 'jungle' area of my backyard.  We have some sand (imported from HOME DEPOT - LOL) to enhance that particular shooting location for models & photographers attending.

"Bring her Gwen....I can't wait to see you again!  I'll be there Ken for sure!!!"

OK Jimmy.  Yes, Gwen will be here early and posing for photographers from the 'get go'.  You've been here at past FOURTH of JULY Pool Party's - this one is shaping up to be much  BETTER than the other two - combined!!!

Stan: I received your 'donation'  - 'Thank you'!  We are looking forward to seeing both you and your son in just TWO SUNDAYS from RIGHT NOW!!!

There has already been a number of photographers confirm their spot by getting their 'donation' in by now.  Also, a fair number of models have contacted me about competing in the TEENY BIKINI Contest for the 6 different CA$H Prizes.  The photographers attending this event are in for a real 'treat' when they see what 'creations' the local Southern California models have to show them for the MOST CREATIVE BIKINI category of the contest.

Summer is HERE!

Happy FATHERS DAY!
