What a great voter turnout for our Colin Grieve (AKA Joyride) style-a-band competition! We are in the final steps to giving this band the new style they terribly need.

Congratulations to the glamorous ladies of the team Stilettos, Mascara, and Pin Curls: Jessica Spoor, Sarah Danniels, and Fiona Kennedy!  Not only did they win the $500 Viewer’s Choice Award, our talented panel of judges have chosen them to compete against the EH team (Kristi Abramson, Karen Schmidt, and Nicole Croxton) and Team JAC (Jasmine Merinsky, Ana Luisa, and Coreen Miller) on September 8th. All three teams will put their ideas into action to personally dress and style the band in a professional photo shoot. The winning team will receive $1500 and will have the opportunity to have their style used for all promotional and press material (maybe even the album cover!) for the band on their rise to national and international glory!

I bet these five guys are looking forward to this just as much as we are..

Yep. They’re seriously waiting for their makeover… can’t you tell?

We’re nearing the end of our Colin Grieve (aka Joyride) style-a-band competition!

Say hi to the band!

These guys desperately needed a makeover so we decided to put together a fun competition. Our fabulously creative makeup, hair, and fashion students and grads collaborated in teams of three to personally create a look to mould the band into the epitome of cool.

After an intimate meet and greet at our downtown Robson campus and piles proposals later, we’ve finally narrowed the teams down to five. The winning team, selected by our judging panel, will win up to $2000 and will have their ideas used for the band’s press and promotional material for 2010!

Now, you have the power to give one of these teams $500 in cash for the viewer’s choice award! All you have to do is watch each of the team’s short clips and click “like”!

Voting closes this Monday, August 30th at 5PM so click onto our online voting page to watch and vote now!!

Aren’t they fun? Updates to come so check back soon!
