Bling My Vibe! Workshop & Crafting Session

Blinged Vibes

Blinged Vibes from our March 2017 workshop

Good Vibrations just turned 40! And we’re celebrating #40YearsOfPleasure all year long… starting with a fabulous, fun and arty contest: Bling My Vibe!

Bling My Vibe! invites sex and art celebrities as well as members of the public to make an art piece using a simple Smoothie vibrator. Once you have your vibe, paint it, decoupage it, bejewel it, sew it an outfit, or otherwise get creative. Want a little encouragement and inspiration? We’re hosting a special Bling My Vibe Workshop at the Polk Street Good Vibrations for folks who want to make their arty vibrator creations together. We’ll have your vibrator ready to bling, plus hot glue guns and lots of bling to put onto them! (You can bring your own supplies too, of course, if you have something special you want to use.) Hosted by Staff Sexologist (and arty collagist) Dr. Carol Queen with burlesque blinger extraordinaire Dottie Lux.

Sunday, April 30th
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Location: Good Vibrations Polk Store

More about the contest:
If you don’t attend our Bling My Vibe craft workshop and want to conduct your own vibe artistry at home, the vibrator base is available at all GV stores for $5, now through April 30th – while supplies last! (We donate a dollar of that directly to our GiVe program to support community sexual health initiatives.) If you don’t live near a Good Vibrations store and wish to bling a vibe, please call our Customer Service Center at 1-800-289-8423 to order your Smoothie base.

These arted- and tarted-up vibes will be displayed at the Good Vibrations Polk Street store during the months of April and May. Winners will be announced at a special awards event on May 21st, 2017 (details below)! Which is the best-blinged vibrator of them all? The top three winners will receive a Good Vibrations gift basket/gift card combo valued at $300, $200, and $100 respectively.

The last time we did a contest like this, the results were amazing!

Rules and Regs:
You must use a Good Vibes Smoothie or comparable hard plastic Smoothie-style vibrator as the basis of the art project. You may add any element/s to the vibrator you choose. The finished vibrator will be displayed at Good Vibrations, and photos of it become the property of Good Vibrations to be displayed on its website and any other contexts it deems appropriate. 18 and over only.

Just drop your creation off at any GV retail location, or mail it to:

The artist will retain ownership of the vibrator itself, and the artwork may be claimed after the GV show is over.
