The Candy Store, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
February 1986 FL8608
Blue with black trim front-gather bandeau and sidestrapped nombril/v-kini. Note side-stays in bandeau very typical of the emerging silhouette.
TML. N-3. Areolage.
Six is a first-timer, curiously evaluating her self and her chances (1) while enjoying the poolside. She fluffs her hair (2), and, like Five (FL8607), she begins her tease in advance of the contest. She walks the stage boldly (3) and gets her first fans. She doesn't survive the cut and retires to her pool chair (4), leans back, her bandeau now areolage (5). She will be back tomorrow, she has already decided. Her boyfriend, proud of her, casts a watchful eye from behind.
Because there is a Bikini Contest every day at The Candy Store the crowd likes to spread the winning around. Winning doesn't necessarly occur only on the stage. And not everybody elects to participate (FL8609).
Wildlife. 5 pictures.
