The "Song for the Lonely" poll!

It's the last poll of the year, fellow fans! You have one week to decide which outfit will be paired with Cher's 2001 hit "A Song for the Lonely" from the album Living Proof, her latest so far.

1st is Cher's winter dress up as she walks around the streets of New York in the music video. 2nd, 3rd and 4th are alternate outfits she wore throughout The Farewell Tour -the tour which followed the release of the album Living Proof- to perform the song in the opening segment. And 5th is the outfit she wore at the Colosseum show in Vegas for that song. It was another Farewell outfit for "Song for the Lonely" slightly updated with a new headdress.

Which one of these five compelling Cher outfits will be chosen to embody "A Song for the Lonely"? It's for you to decide, fellow fans! As always, you can vote at the top of the sidebar on the left. The poll runs for one week so make your choice and talk about it to your friends and other Cher fans! ...and stay tuned for new artworks!

"After All" wallpaper

Greetings, fellow fans! There's a new image waiting for you in the wallpaper section! It's Cher as the Ice Queen just in time for Christmas season! She wore this costume for the "After All" segment of the Colosseum show in Vegas, making an enchanting entrance sailing onto the stage on a gondola with a romantic mist surrounding her. The costume was a newer version of a similar winter queen dress up she had for the Heart of Stone and Love Hurts tours.

The "Shoop Shoop" Poll

A new poll is running this week, fellow fans! Remember the delightful movie from 1990 called "Mermaids"? It starred Cher as the unconventional single mother raising her two girls (Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci) in the 1960's and flirting with a local shop owner (Bob Hoskins). It also featured a cover of "The Shoop Shoop Song" by Cher, which ever since became a favorite in her latest tours and compilation albums.

This week's poll is to determine which outfit will be paired with this specific song for the playing cards. 1st is the mermaid costume that Cher's character wore for a party in the movie and which was used for promotional photoshoots. 2nd is another but more casual dress up seen in the movie and also used for promotional purposes. That's pretty much all there is to say! Now, time to vote, fellow fans!

"Believe" Poll Results

How cruel?! leaving you on the edge of your seat for 4 long days after the exciting conclusion of the "Believe" poll! Have you been biting your nails waiting to find out which outfit would be chosen to represent Cher's all-time greatest hit, fellow fans?

Two costumes shared the top spot as your favorite "Believe" outfit when the poll came to an end last Wednesday. Among all 5 choices that were on the line, it's the red-head Colosseum show outfit and the music video outfit that got the most votes.

After debating for a while, I decided to opt for the latter but using the pose of the former. ...So there will still be a little bit of both in the final result! You can see a more definitive sketch above between the two photos.

Stay tuned for the next poll, fellow fans! Do you have a song in mind? "Shoop Shoop"? "All or Nothing"? ...Surprise me with a suggestion!

The "Believe" poll

"Do you believe in life after love?"

It's time to find the most memorable, beloved, striking outfit to highlight the biggest hit of Cher's entire career: "Believe"!

Get ready for you have enough to be overwhelmed by all your choices. This song served for the big encore to each of Cher's latest concert tours and each time she strutted in some stunning outfits to honor her all-time greatest hit ( far!)

1st is her dress up for the song during the Do you Believe? tour in 1999 which promoted the newly released "Believe" album. 2nd was for the grande finale of The Farewell Tour which ran from 2002 to 2005. 3rd and 4th were both worn during her recent comeback at the Colosseum of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. And last but not least, the 5th evokes the "Believe" music video in which Cher had two different outfits. It combines the fancy headdress of one and the rock star dress up of the other, just as Cher did for the 26th Annual American Music Awards in 1999.

Time to vote, fellow fans! Your participation to the last poll has been a tremendous help! Thanks to all for your comments and votes. The blog has reached 20 fellow members so far and gathered 87 voters for the last poll. Woot woot! The numbers keep growing!

"Jesse James" poll results

4 days and 87 votes later, the "Jesse James" poll has come down to a tie! 43 fellow fans favored the two lovely outfits pictured above, while the remaining outfits (shown below) both gathered 31 votes each. Thanks to all for your participation and comments! The two winning outfits will go back to the drawing board to be completed and included in the Cher Playing Cards!

Stay tuned for tomorrow. The next poll is one that you will not want to miss!

Love Hurts

This artwork was done a short while ago but had yet to be unveiled. Here it is! Cher in the magnificent blue gown with sequined floral design... Over 20 years after wearing it for the Celebration at Caesar's Palace show in 1980, Cher came back with an updated version for the Colosseum show to perform "Love Hurts" and "The Way of Love" as well. It was also used for the Vanity Fair photoshoot in 2010 during the promotion of the movie Burlesque. This is one magnificent Bob Mackie creation that will surely be included in the card deck!

...One day left for the "cowboy" outfit poll, fellow fans! Anxious to see the results? It ends this evening and another poll will follow very shortly. Stay tuned!

Apologies... False start

Hey, fellow fans! I noticed the poll would only let you choose one outfit so I had to reinitialize it to fix this problem. My deepest apologies for the inconvience. I will let the poll run for an extra day to make up for it. Thanks for your understanding!

...But most greatly, thanks for your participation!

"Strong Enough" poll results

The "Strong Enough" poll is now officially over! After one week of voting and debating over 4 different outfits, you have proclaimed Cher's "Strong Enough" video outfit to be the big winner! It collected a staggering 43% of the votes, followed by the red-head dress up from the Farewell Tour with a respectable 34%.

Here's an updated sketch for the winner outfit. Little more dynamic than the first pose so that it may fit better with the uplifting mood of the song. ...and also to give it more presence on the playing card (but that's design matter. I'll bother with that). By the way, have you seen the new icon in the address bar at the top of your internet browser? Sassy, isn't it!

Now it's time to vote on the next poll, fellow fans: it's cowboy Cher!

December 03, 2011

The "Jesse James" poll

Get ready for the new poll, fellow fans! You get to choose your 2 favorite cowboyesque outfits from Cher's wardrobe to showcase hits such as "Just Like Jesse James" and "A Cowboy's Work is Never Done".

1st we have Cher's dress up for the "Just Like Jesse James" song during the Love Hurts tour in 1992. 2nd was seen on stage in 1980 for a country medley performance during a special show called Celebration at Caesar's Palace. The funky 3rd outfit is from a photoshoot for Malibu Cowboy boots in 2009. And at last, the 4th outfit was used during both Farewell and Colosseum shows to perform various ballad songs.

You'll have to be fast on your guns this week because the poll will run for four days only. So take a glimpse at all choices taken from your suggestions over the last two weeks and cast your vote, fellow fans!

Thanks for all the suggestions that were sent! Head-to-toe picture was a major requirement so some outfits had to be discarded unfortunately...
