    Thought this thread was about people who overdress for auctions only to get outbidded very early on

    Haha I've actually specifically dressed up for auctions. Or in this case, actually dressed down. I had boardshorts, a headband and a ripped T-shirt.

    Who knows if it actually did anything, but I had fun anyway.

    I think a bidder's bid speaks a million times louder than what they're wearing (or not wearing, in thatbum's case) (and I have nothing on that Winnie The OMG)

    Ha I was prepared to go quite high in that particular auction - and so I had this idea at the time that people would be less willing to follow me if it looked like I didn't know what I was doing.

    So I sat on the ground and bid really informally - saying things like "aw yeah, why not?" when prompted by the auctioneer etc.

    In the end I was the highest bidder by a fair margin below the reserve, and secured the property, but I think it had more to do with the dead market in Perth at the time rather than any antics.

    There's a Mexican joint in perth having a tequila dinner in a few weeks featuring Avion tequila. They're encouraging people to dress up as turtle from entourage.

    Awesome
