Christmas Contests Ka-Cheapan!

blog 4 Comments

Believe it or not, this is the photo I present on my travels.

I will admit, though, that there has been some assistance (the operative word being SOME) from CS3, but the photo is still a testament to the photographic talent of Ronnie Salvacion and makeup savvy of Juan Sarte III. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, life’s a ball when you have the country’s best do something as mundane for you as your passport picture. It is such a good thing.

As a makeup artist, one is constantly inspired to bring out the best features in one’s client. There is never the wrong client; there is only the uninspired moment. Every one has that inherent je ne sais quoi waiting to be discovered, unearthed, contoured, or polished. So in the days of modern cosmetics, HD makeup, and technologically-enhanced beauty products, there is really no excuse to look bad, and the request to look like a better version of yourself is literally as easy as booking the right makeup artist, or buying the correct concealer.

And since I do have the penchant to bring things one step further, through the magic of the internet, I have undergone several facial surgeries. Note: these are all virtual procedures, and should not be done without the supervision of an art director, fashion editor, or Tita Vicky Belo (or your trusted cosmetic expert). Bad taste should be left outside the door, together with one’s sanity, and one should only check in, and check out these pictures, with the utmost understanding that it is all in the name of jest. Otherwise, please leave now. (Mental note: bawal ang KJ at walang sense of humor!)

Inspired by Boboy’s pa-contest on his blog, I have also come up with my own Yuletide treat to all those who graciously & patiently read my life’s ranting. Attached hereafter are several versions of my passport picture morphed into some of the world’s most recognizable faces. Identify chronologically the person with which my face has been hybridized and the person (well, the first one of you at least) who comes up with the complete correct list will win an original DVD of my choice (please trust my movie tastes; I used to do the morning show movie critiques way back when I was still on cam). Post your list here, and please feel free to add whatever comment you wish as long as you properly place the right person on the corresponding number.

In the words of the quintessential game show host Bob Barker: come on down!

P.S. Contest Rules: The winner is solely responsible for all taxes and/or fees that may be incurred (actually, wala naman). The winner is required to verify proper and legal picture identification and phone number within 30 days of notification of winning the prize (para lang maging close na tayo ng bonggang bongga). The winner may forfeit any and all winnings if verification cannot or has not been made within 30 days (or kung feeling ko hindi mo naman deserve talaga manalo). Upon proper verification, winnings will be awarded personally, within seven (7) business days (or before Christmas, para special). Neither I, my friends, or sponsors may be held liable for any warranty, costs, damage, injury, or any other claims incurred as a result of usage of any winner of a prize once possession has been taken of the product by winner (actually, hindi ko maintindihan ito; bahala na si Batman). I will not be liable for any loss arising out of or in connection with or resulting from any contest promoted by other starlets. If the specified prize becomes unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, I may substitute a prize of like or equal value (in other words, wala ka talagang choice). Management, employees and families of Ricci Chan are prohibited from winning any prizes awarded by Ricci Chan (so Nico, bawal ka; isama mo na si Mommy). I reserve the right to alter any rules of the contest at anytime. If you have any questions or complaints about my contest, please leave a comment here at www.riccichan.com.
