Thursday Thirteen #46 — The Wall of Fame!


It all started when Trevor brought a new addition to the ShapeShifter Wall of Fame last week. He brought up the idea of showing you public what the Wall looks like. The Wall was originally Mitchell‘s idea, so he thought he should get to show you around. But the tour was Trevor’s idea.

While the two of them are busy arguing over who gets to share their stories, Eric‘s going to step up and fill the void. Thus…

Thirteen items on the ShapeShifter Wall of Fame:

1. This was the bra that inspired the Wall of Fame. We were backstage, getting ready for our set and some girl walked in the room, took off this bra, and draped it over Mitchell’s head. He blushed. Trevor thanked the girl in his typical way and tried to steal the bra. I think he wanted to wear it. Mitchell grabbed it back and said it was going to go onto a new Wall of Fame. He kept that bra until we got home, and then he hung it on a wall in the practice space at Daniel’s house. Now, we have our Tour Manager ship them home for us.

2. We didn’t come by this one honestly, I’m afraid. We were in Vegas and Daniel dared Trevor to sneak into some showgirl’s dressing room and make off with part of her costume. Trevor can’t turn down a dare of this sort, but he didn’t sneak. He picked a girl who was so gorgeous, my eyes hurt to look at her. When Trevor came back out of the dressing room, he said she gave it to him. Given the look she gave him when she kissed him goodbye, I don’t doubt it.

3. I can’t say anything without upsetting Daniel, but I don’t believe this should be on the Wall of Fame. It’s apparently Val’s.

4. This bra belonged to a girl I dated for about a month. I met her in Seattle at a show and at first, she followed us in her own car. Three weeks later, she convinced a friend to drive the car home so she could stay on the bus with me. She only lasted on the bus with us for a week before she couldn’t take it. We didn’t stay in touch, but it wasn’t for lack of effort on my end.

5, 6, 7. These belonged to this set of triplets who got past security. We were very glad they did.

8. Ever notice how gorgeous a basic white bra looks against darker skin? The contrast is amazing. I’m not talking about a girl with a fake tan that rubs off onto the cotton, either. The next time you see that white bra against a deeply colored skin, stop and appreciate.

9. Those Texas girls… We love them.

10. We’ve known the girl behind this bra for years. She shows up whenever we’re in Minneapolis and the surrounding area, depending on how free her schedule is. Karina loves to travel, so we shouldn’t have been surprised when she caught up with us in Paris. The best thing about Karina: she’s always wearing this bra. Well, not this particular one. But this exact style. We’ve got like twenty of them laying around. Mitchell keeps asking us what would happen if we gave the other nineteen back. Trevor says once we start that game, it’ll never end. We’ll wind up passing the same bra back and forth between us.

He’s probably right.

11. I always thought there was something virginal about this bra (and notice how the white stands out against that gorgeous skin of hers). And then I met the woman inside it. I was right.

12. Trevor has a thing for demi-bras, especially when the girls are overflowing them slightly. You want to see that boy drool? Show up in one of these. I picked this one as an example because I really like the color.

13. Trevor brought us this one just last week. Something about it being left behind when he was hanging with some cool folk who tell stories in 100 words or less and the owner maybe asking Susan for it back, but we were all supposed to play dumb and … oh, shoot. Susan’s going to read this, isn’t she?

Umm. Well, then. Let me tell you the real story behind it. It’s been here for years and we have no idea who Rhian is. Really.

  1. The Tour Manager

    September 12, 2007 8:09 pm

    For the record, that’s Charlie, ShapeShifter’s Tour Manager who handles the bras. I don’t get random voluptuous women handing me their lingerie.

  2. Susan Helene Gottfried

    September 12, 2007 8:20 pm

    What about the non-voluptuous women?

    Nice trip down mammory lane. I had to be careful not to get any drool on my keyboard.

    In our house, the “girls” are called personalities…it’s the video game chicks. Anyways, boys and their trophies…that wall of fame is more like a war chest.

    Inscribed for a wonderful new year sounds wonderful. I hope that you are, and thanks for the wishes to your blog friends!BR/BR/Now, for the Wall of Fame: great tour. My favorite items are the French maid-inspired set from the third triplet, and Karina’s gorgeous confection. Thanks, Susan!

    September 12, 2007 9:01 pm

    You know, Chelle, they make wonderful water bras that look great (especially under sweaters). Might want to give them a try… BR/BR/*This information brought to you by my Body Pump instructor*

  15. Susan Helene Gottfried

    September 12, 2007 9:39 pm

    You know they’ll love it, Amy. Or you can send it to Robin at Around the Island; I hear she’s planning on throwing a bra (or two) at Mitchell the next time she sees ShapeShifter live.

  16. Rhian / Crowwoman

    September 12, 2007 9:59 pm

    Great list. I was going to say something about boys and their toys, but my next thought was I wonder if Lisa’s posted.


    September 13, 2007 1:08 am

    They are all pretty women and they all have beautiful boobs. Lucky You!]BR/Thanks for the visit.

    Robin’s still debating it – one look at those bras is making my puny little A cups feel very outclassed LOL.

    September 13, 2007 3:39 am

    Of all the things I expected to be doing when I embarked on today’s TT, bra shopping was not among them. BR/BR/But some of those were so cute I just have to see if they come in 36DD. ( I know, not getting my hopes up too far). BR/BR/Thanks for the shopping excursion. :)BR/BR/~X

    I’m not surprised by the collection, but I am impressed that Eric remembered where they all came from. 🙂

    Hmmmm! Very interesting.

    September 13, 2007 9:49 am

    Now this is a classical Shapeshifter topic again. LOLBR/I’m afraid the guys were not the only ones drooling today. I was just mesmerized for different reasons, I guess. (To say it with Wash: “What am I looking at, the girls or the clothes?” LMAO)

  34. Ann Aguirre

    September 13, 2007 9:59 am

    Interesting list. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a finer collection of bras.

  35. Sue

    September 13, 2007 10:09 am

    Wow! Now that is an interesting collection! Happy TT, and thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    Heck, I just wish I had boobs to put in those!

  38. Cassandra

    September 13, 2007 12:33 pm

    Hmm, maybe I should have a wall of fame…except let’s face it, nobody wants a wall of dirty emn’s underwear on their wall. Reminds us women too much of laundry! And we get plenty of that to pick up every week off the floor. LOL

  39. Angela/SciFiChick

    September 13, 2007 12:53 pm

    Wow. SO not work appropriate. oops

  41. L^2

    September 13, 2007 1:27 pm

    LOL!!! I never cease to be amazed by the things you come up with Susan. However, if the guys have that many women giving them these “gifts,” I’m really surprised they would remember where/who each one came from.

  42. Amelia June

    September 13, 2007 1:49 pm

    Well, boy knows his bras! Always important 🙂

  43. Susan Helene Gottfried

    September 13, 2007 2:49 pm

    The memorable ones always stand out, L. And you’ll notice that some of the details on some of them are a little vague…

  44. Nap Warden

    September 13, 2007 2:58 pm

    Making me feel frumpy…I think I need to do some shopping;) Happy TT

  45. Susan Helene Gottfried

    September 13, 2007 3:24 pm

    Me, too, Nap Warden. Somehow Body by Victoria just doesn’t do it compared to those…

  46. Jill

    September 13, 2007 5:07 pm

    Susan, which of those one is Rhian!!BR/And now, because of you, I want to go do another shopping spree at LaSenza!!

  47. rhet

    September 13, 2007 7:32 pm

    Rhian will be pleased

  48. Susan Helene Gottfried

    September 13, 2007 7:34 pm

    Rhet, she’s denying any wearing of that final bra. You might want to talk some sense into her for me!

  49. Robin L. Rotham

    September 13, 2007 11:58 pm

    Great — more fantastic bras for me to sigh over. 😀

  50. FRIGGA

    Ooooooooh, I love that second one! Though I’d probably never wear it… But still, it’s gorgeous!BR/BR/Happy TT to you! And thanks for stopping by 😉

  53. Marcia (MeeAugraphie)

    September 14, 2007 7:16 pm

    I only had time for a quick visit, but I sure picked the right post… I just need to know if he was accurate as to which belonged to whom… Rhian seemed to be questioning it, and she should know, so I have to question his list, Susan. BR/BR/If only I could have filled them out, I may have snuck in and grabbed my favorite one off the wall… Surely they have so many they wouldn’t miss that one.
