NOTE ADDED 15 JULY 2008:
THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SHOWN INTEREST IN THE BON SCOTT CROTCH APRON.
HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO RESPECT A FRIENDLY REQUEST FROM BON’S FAMILY, I HAVE DECIDED TO WITHDRAW THE APRON FROM SALE.
PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS WITHDRAWAL FROM SALE.
-CHEERS, LUCAS FROM BON SCOTT BLOG…
[PS: THE ORIGINAL BLOG POST ABOUT THE APRON FOLLOWS – FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY. HOWEVER, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PURCHASE THE BON SCOTT CROTCH APRON.
July 9th, as you all know, is Bon’s Birthday. Amazingly, the rocker would be youthful 62 this year!
Well, the Bon Scott Blog is happy to announce a new gift for that Bon Scott Lover in your life who’s “got it all”…
The Limited Edition Bon Scott Crotch Apronâ„¢, as modelled so fetchingly above by Alyssa.
The apron was hand-silkscreened by print guru Alyssa and myself in the dying days of my artist-in-residence in Fremantle. You can see photos of the printing in progess here.
The apron is designed to sit snugly over your hips, creating the illusion, for as long as you wear it, that you have acquired the well packaged groin of Australia’s greatest rocker. To boot, you get the deliciously hairy belly and a bit of microphone on the lower right hand side…
The drawing featured on the apron is the same one I used as an iron-on for my Bon Scott Crotch singlet when I went to the big concert. It was done by my friend Hana Shimada. Very adept with a lead pencil, that Hana.
The screen was kindly prepared for me by West Australian printing maven Susanna Castleden from Curtin University.
The aprons themselves were custom made in Melbourne, of the finest cotton drill, and supplied by Australian ApronMakers. Athol Kelly, the dad of my friend Deborah helped me out by getting the aprons to me in record time and at a good price.
To top it off, every apron comes with a hand-sewn, gold-on-black Bon Scott Blog tag (just like grandma used to fix onto your clothes so you didn’t get ’em nicked at school). Many of these tags were sewn on by my girlfriend Lizzie while she watched television.
So folks, as you can see these aprons are a labour of love from the sweatshop of Bon!
Now, this is a very limited edition print run – only 50 of these aprons are available, so get in quick!
A bargain at only AUD$55 dollars plus postage and handling! For obvious reasons, I am restricting sales to one apron per person. If you want an apron, email me now: lucas[at]bonscottblog[dot]com and we’ll work out all the payment and postage options…
