Plastic Joy and a GIVEAWAY!!

While I was away on my travels my fabulous friend, Helga sent me the Plastic Joy Award. The rules are that I have to name at least five characters from TV or film that I'd be happy to have, ahem, a bit of joy goes:

The disfunctional kidnapper Billy Brown, played by Vincent Gallo in Buffalo 66.

Tyler Durden from Fight Club - Brad Pitt never did anything for me until I checked out his groovy 1970's wardrobe in this movie.

Count Dracula

Turner in Performance (any excuse to ogle the young Mick Jagger)

Raoul Duke, Hunter S Thompson's alter-ego in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas.

I'm tagging the following lovelies:

.....And so to the GIVEAWAY:

A silver-coloured tribal choker and earrings, a carved fruitwood snake hair stick and a bumper pack of bindis all wrapped up in a silk drawstring bag made from a recycled sari.

You need to be a follower of my blog and to leave a comment below. 
The closing date is 10pm on Wednesday 12th May, 2010.
The winner will be selected at random.

Good luck and thanks for following!

  22. PS. Oh, and I realized I never responded to your comment from my last post. Yes, my dad is from India!! He moved to the States in 1962 for college and never looked back, unfortunately. (He had a falling out with his family.) In fact, I have never met his side of the family or even been to India. It's a shame really. I'm totally jealous that you recently went. When I save up money some day, I'm totally going!! :)

  23. This is the coolest give-away ever! I do follow you and I would LOVE to get Johnny Depp or Chris Cornell or Eddie Vetter alone for a day or two!!!

  24. Some very good choices there. Who doesn't like a rugged badboy!

    Lovely and very generous giveaway, count me in please. :)


  25. ooh count me in too!!

    I got tagged a while back, I need to do this but have been pondering for a while on how to get it down to just

    hope you're holding up ok xx

  26. There's something about a dangerous man, isn't there? You know you shouldn't, but....

    Some lovely treasures to be won there, hope I get picked!

    Keep well x

  27. Got to agree with Tyler Durden Vix, Brad is lushtastic in that film, he's really gone down hill as he's aged though :(

    Please enter me into your giveaway and it's fab to have you back. Hope your working through whatever struggle it is you're having (mentioned a couple of days ago), you are in my thoughts xx

  28. The honour! And with this tag I would like to thank... :) Thank you, I'm going to enjoy posting about my err plastic joy. Do I detect a certain dark and rugged theme running through your choices Vix?

    And I would also love to be entered in to your giveaway please. What beautiful beautiful items xx

  29. What a great selection, how exciting!

    Love your choices of men too. I can't say Brad Pitt's Tyler was the moment I liked him best, but who doesn't swoon a little over Gary Oldman's Dracula?

    I'm a follower :)

  30. Great choice in men :) and a fantastic giveaway xx

  31. what a lovely, generous giveaway, I'd love to enter! :) x

  32. I totally agree about Brad Pitt, I never really thought much of him before I saw 'Fight Club' either but seeing him in that awesome 70s leather jacket certainly made me sit up and pay a little more attention ;)
    What fab items you are giving away too!

  33. Whilst they might not suit me too well, I do know a lovely lady who (should I be the lucky winner) would die for those gifts!

  34. Such lovely goodies! I would love the chance to win, thank you!
