You can call it making a #sleeveface or even #vinyling, but with the popularity of the selfie sky-rocketing and the popularity of vinyl steadily rising amongst retro-lovers and hipsters, what better way to hijack a narcissistic trend with your favourite vinyl art than taking a #SleeveSelfie?
Here at ShinyShiny we want to see your best #SleeveSelfie and to give you an incentive to start posing with your vinyl we’re giving away an awesome record player and £100 worth of vinyl albums to two of our lucky winners (more details to be announced soon). You can even share a few words about why that record changed your life.
The record player is the fabulous Teac LP-P1000 – which packs a turntable, CD recorder, AM/FM tuner and Bluetooth (for smartphones), and will record vinyl to CD and USB. It normally sells for around £350
More info here.
Also up for grabs is £100 worth of your choice of vinyl albums.
Here’s what you have to do:
1. Take a selfie, but cover up your face with your favourite sleeve. You can be as inventive as you like, dress up in the style of the cover art, recreate an iconic scene, or just hold up a record in front of your cat.
2. Tag your photo #SleeveSelfie and share it on Twitter or Instagram.
3. We’ll keep an eye out for entries and feature them here on ShinyShiny.tv as well as at sleeveselfie.tumblr.com.
4. We’ll then pick a #SleeveSelfie at random at 5pm on Friday 11th April 2014, as well as the most inventive #SleeveSelfie – either the cleverest pic or the smartest words will win a prize.
