Le fashion show and photoshoot contest!


Now that I am done with getting a bunch of stuff out of the way I went and checked to make sure I put all the necessary rules and info. into the draft and finally put everything up but if I'm missing anything please let me know! Please make sure to read all the rules first before asking any questions.

*And a small note I'm still getting around to all the messages. I've been a bit busy the past few days esp. I had a few days without a laptop and will reply to you if I haven't yet.

Please click the cut to see more info.

First off there are going to be 2 contests.
One is a plushie fashion show and the other is a scenery/story photoshoot. Anyone are free to enter either both or one of them but will only be able to submit 1 entry for the plushie fashion show and only up to 2 entries for the photoshoot so make your entries as great as possible and choose your best before submitting! If this is successful the next contest will be clay molding a figure with a base similar to this Xerneas figure here: http://emilysculpts.deviantart.com/art/Pokemon-X-Legenda-Xerneas-407200919 or something else so I'm going to make a poll and feedback session after this is done.

Misc. rules:
International people are allowed to enter the contest however you must pay half of the shipping costs. US people don't need to pay for shipping
Sales permission granted by entirelycliched on July 27th 2013
You must have no negative and only 2 neutral feedback to join
If you win make sure you check your messages and a post for the winning announcement otherwise if you do not reply in 4 days the prize will be given to a person who had the next best totals
you are free to give the prize to someone else or enter for someone but cannot give the prize until you receive it yourself.
Rules for plushie fashion show:
Desc.: You must choose you're prized plush(basically your favorite pkmn) and dress it up any way you like! You can make the outfits or even have it cosplay something use your imagination!
*Please be aware that it doesn't really matter what condition your plush is and can even win without having a mint plush up(esp. since many prefer having it kept stored to keep it mint which is perfectly understandable as a collector we all want our plushes minty fresh)it's just a way of showing off your glamourous plushie and it's beautifulness like in the real contests in the series. ^^
-you can only use one Pokemon so choose wisely
- the sheener the coat(referring to condition of plush) the more it will please the judges
hints: try adding lighting to show it off/don't use dark lighting
- add a scenery or a backdrop like a tea ceremony or a stage to earn even more points!
-borders and little sparkles added makes it look really nice so make it look flashy! But not too flashy where we become blind with shinyness! XD
-having a unique scenery awards you more points with the judges
-add accessories to give your Pokemon some flare!
-please do not edit your photos or draw over your image. You can only add little icons and hearts and stuff to make it look flashy and frames are great!
-pokemon plushes must be up to 10 inches tall and no bigger than that. Bipedal pokemon can be an exception depending on what Pokemon it is.
-you must select a category of any of these: cool, cute, or dark although it won't affect judging that much so feel free to choose what you category you like the most. ^^
Rules for scenery/story photoshoot:
It's pretty simple. You've seen some people take photo's of their figures at a beach or in a grassland and such right? That's all you do!
-you can use up to 4 figures in one image. Any figure can be used as long as it's a figure and cannot have a base underneath it or something attached to a figfure like those bottlecap figures.
-you can submit up to 2 entries
-you can choose to make a scenery image or make a figure comic with the figures and can use any kind of background or use any items to give an effect of a scenery. You can also build your own scenery. You can use plushes too but only one can be used.

Prizes can be donated and some prizes are subject to change

If there are over 20 entries there will be one more place added for each contest. Also because there was no votes in my last post of the contest for the most popular Pokemon to be put as a prize you can also do that now and the Pokemon with the most votes will be put up as a prize if available. Just name a Pokemon that is popular or you like and I'll count it as a vote.

*Also, a judge has offered to donate prizes/pay for international shipping so if anyone else would like to do that you are free to do so it would be greatly appreciated. ^^
And lastly have fun!
