Mr. Litterbox Competition


Zeus is hosting the Mr. Litterbox 2007 competition. This is my entry into the competition, in the evening wear category.

My dad is an officer in the Canadian Forces, and he let me borrow his "Mess Kit" to have my photo taken for the competition. An officer's "Mess Kit" or "Mess Dress" is considered formal wear and is equivalent to a civilian tuxedo. For example, my dad wore his Mess Kit when he and my mom were married. If you are interested, you can check out photos of their wedding here.

My dad's Mess Kit is that of an army officer, with some details of the uniform indicating that he is an engineer (the small beavers on the lapel, for instance), and some details indicating his rank of Major (the gold braid on the sleeves and the rank epaulets.)

It's a very smart outfit Dragonheart and extremely impressive but I think I like you in your normal wear the best. A lily doesn't need any gilding as they say. FAZ
