Thongs, Spots and a New World Record!

28 Jul

Just before lunch time today, over 300 people painted themselves into the Guinness Book of Record here in Cork, setting the new Body-Painting World Record! The event, which was organized by Cork Body Painting set out to break the previous 5-year long record of ‘264 bodies painted’ held by an American group.

People of all heights, all backgrounds, all shapes and all sizes showed up from 8am this morning to strip naked (Okay, we all had to wear a thong!), and just before lunch over 317 bodies has been painted from head to toe, fingers, ears, armpits…and sometimes even people’s hair!

By late morning, as the counter clicked 200 a mighty cheer erupted in the hall of the Camden Palace Hotel, gradually becoming louder as we approached the 264 mark. Confidence oozed out of participants as they pranced around half-naked, posing for photos, helping out others or just soaking up the general atmosphere.

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing, as panic spread through-out the city last night as every last shop in Cork sold out of Male thongs! Adult shop, Utopia, came to the rescue though and remained the only outlet with thongs still available yesterday evening, according to The Irish Examiner!

It was a bizarre feeling to be walking around the Camden Palace Hotel with all but a skimpy thong, sipping on hot tea and chatting to total stranger over a game of foosball. I never thought I would feel so at ease and comfortable surrounded by so many naked bodies!

I doubt I will ever forget the image of a 634 multi-colored arms, a spectrum of color, raised high above a sea of naked ambition as the last of the group photos were taken, with everyone smiling and cheering and in a state of utter bliss.

As Keira O Connell, the chief organizer and the lady behind the idea summed up the event, “I think it’s safe to say if I asked anyone that didn’t have an enjoyable experience today to raise their hand, we would be looking in the face of a liar!”

It truly was an unforgettable experience enjoyed by all and something I can now tick off my bucket list!

Body Painting World Record

25 Jul

This Saturday, the wonderful people from “Cork Body Painting”, are aiming to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records by body painting more than 264 brave Corkonians (and anyone else who turns up!).

The chance to get naked (again!!) with hundreds of others and get painted by cool artists from head to toe? YES PLEASE!

As you can guess I signed up straight away and have since seen that lots of my outgoing couchsurfing friends have signed up to! I really hope the day is a success so I can tick off “Set a World Record” from my never-ending Bucket List! I have already picked out what colours I want to be painted but still need to decide on a cool design so let me know if you have any ideas!

If you want to sign up, you must do it before MIDNIGHT today!You can send an email to corkbodypaintingguinnessrecord@gmail.com or check out their facebook page. If you are feeling REALLY brave you can also sign up for the Cork Naked Bike Ride taking place on 3pm on the same day!
