Hi, there is a contest that I want to win in my hometown, so my 10 year old daughter can see the Justin Bieber contest. I have to take a a creative picture of her and I need some ideas. The best one I can think of is to stand her in front of the handful of posters she has and use tattoo markers and cover her WHOLE visible body in his name and other sayings such as Justin Rocks and I love Justin. Does anyone have any other creative ideas I could do? I only have until Friday and have to do this from home. This will be her first concert and we really want to win. Please help us. PLEASE

Thanks a Justin Bieber fans mom

Mmmm, I'm not down with the whole idea to be honest. Just buy the tickets and have her do chores for them. Thats what we've done in the past

Sorry. The thought of having a 10 year old's body plastered with tattoos let alone being encouraged to go and see a Justin Bieber concert is so not good...Guess we're just not on the same page with this. JMHO

Yes they are fixed I used to work in media communications and they usually go to a relative of one of the higher ups in the radio station . I can tell you it was no picnic cause all of my relatives used to put the bite on me for free tickets and I never got any and I was an employee .

Who in the World is Justin Bieber?...

In fact, I have a feeling I don't want to know.

Maybe the photography forum can give you suggestions. I personally wouldn't plaster my daughter w/ fake tatoo art in hopes for free tickets. Make it worth it to you dd to earn tickets or give as a present for something special.

Just google him or check him out on youtube. I'm glad my teen doesn't like him. I think he's more for the tween group.

Add me in with the other parents who wouldn't be encouraging this kind of fanatical behavior. Drawing all over herself with his name..?? IMO, sounds cheesy and desperate but I have no idea what it would take to win the tickets. DD never would have considered doing anything like that...but she wasn't/isn't into any of that fad stuff....I can't tell you how thankful I am for that.

I agree with letting her work to earn the tickets. At least consider it a Plan B because her chances of winning the contest are slim.
