Crafty Fairytales



The idea of this contest is very simple:
You are to show the world how good you are with your hands!
This contest is for those who usually don't draw or write but like to craft things!
Please make sure you stay loyal to the [#THEME].


This contest is closed


Contest Mods: [Lothuriel] and [Jitter]


Crafts must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular craft you found online, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.

You also NEED to take a proofphoto!

To enter this contest you have to submit a new picture (it can be an old craft) combined with a proof picture with a bottle of water taken during the same photoshoot.
This is to prove that the craft is yours.
It would also be awesome if you could provide pictures while you're making it!
- If you want to submit an old craft you no longer have (sold, gifted etc.) you can enter it but only if you have pictures of it while making it, the bottle is not necessary!

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- No blurry pictures with webcams for your Crafts.
- Doll house kits, premade ceramics, miniatures, and action figures are NOT allowed. We want your designs and templates.


To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, entries that include graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only entries that fit the theme will be allowed.

All applicable mediums will be accepted. (sculpting, cross-stitch, plushies, beading, fairy-tale costumes YOU made etc) if you have doubts about something feel free to ask!
No drawings, photo-manipulations or animations.
This is not a photography contest, so don't submit fairytale photography. We however of course accept photographs of your fairytale crafts work.



The theme of this contest is: 'Crafty Fairytales'
We want you to -literally- get your hands dirty and sculpt, carve, sew etc. something from your favourite fairytale!
We're open to all fairytales, but if you pick a lesser known fairytale you have to provide us with a link to the story.
If you're not sure, just ask us :)

Using kits or patterns you didn't create is not allowed.


The deadline of this competition is 2009-01-02

We will be picking two (2) images as the winners.

Ten images will be picked out by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented and a Mainstreet poll will tell the winner.
Participants will receive an art donor badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building badge if they are committed art donors).

2008-09-23 [Jitter]: Well it either had to be extended or cancelled since there's not much point to judge only 3 entries. There was plenty of time in the first place and your entry was lovely. I'm very sad you decided to take it down and I hope you'll opt for puting it up again or make an even better entry if you wish :)

2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: there was a good ammount of time to begin with, I agree --- I just got so damn busy, i didn't even realize how busy I had gotten with real-life issues until I checked the calendar and just watched the days pile up. :(
I've got one entry finished, but I'm not quite sure it completely follows the theme.......I mean, in my opinion it does, but I'm not sure it would widely be accepted as a part of the theme or not -- plus, I don't have the best camera in the world, so I have to do a lot of clean-up and editing to the photo to get it to be properly presentable. I didn't even realize how much work THAT would take until I couldn't even squeeze in the time to do it :(

I surely hope she didn't just retract it completely because of a deadline extension, either. Maybe she's working on it, or plans to do something more with it to resubmit it.

2008-09-24 [Jitter]: If it's the Smaug plushie you mentioned above, I personally believe "The Hobbit" is one of the best fairy tales ever written ;)

2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: Well no, I didn't have the right materials to make the Smaug Plushie -- I made a jewelry piece. An Elf-Queen headress type is also from the hobbit, or at least, what I would imagine it would be like, as it itself was never directly mentioned in the Hobbit. That's where I was having some decrepencies -- does the item have to be specifically mentioned? As this was just something that I brewed up in my head that I would imagine an Elf Queen would be wearing :P

My second entry that I've been trying to work on, and keep messing up on is a Plushie of the Fireys from Labyrinth, but I'm having a bit of trouble with the lil fucker >;P

2008-09-24 [Jitter]: Hmmm, I think as long as it looks fairytaleish and elven I guess it will count :)

It'd be better if it was mentioned somewhere to be honest but I'll have to ask for sure

2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: Well I got plenty of extra time now, so if it doesn't count -- oh well, it was still fun to make, I can always make something else now if it wont qualify ;)

2008-09-24 [Jitter]: I'd say put it as a placeholder at least but also try and make something closer to the theme :D

2008-09-29 [arthemis_]: two entries hè? Maybe I make another one with the deadline extension.

2008-10-12 [Lothuriel]: I need to come up with something for this....

2008-10-12 [Jitter]: Yes you should! *forces*

2008-10-19 [Grandamelf]: Yea, we have more time!

2008-11-05 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Aw hell... I really want to make something for this, but I have so little time. =( Are... *ahem* rush-jobs allowed if you still put your best effort into them?

2008-11-06 [Jitter]: Sure x)

2008-11-06 [arthemis_]: hihi, rush jobs? December is a busy month, but sure you find some time ;)

2008-11-06 [Jitter]: I'm so sad we haven't got many nentries in this contest :(

2008-11-06 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Well, with a little luck there's going to be one more now. :3 For me, December is going to be less busy than usual, actually, but it's not quite what I'd like for a real craft.

2008-11-06 [arthemis_]: I'm making an second entry :)

2008-11-06 [Mordigen]: I'm still working on getting mine in - though, I have to admit, there is no guarantee :( Things have gotten more complicated than I expected lately, but I still have plans and every intention on entering

2009-01-03 [arthemis_]: aaahh too bad, I couldn't manage to finish my second entry in time :)

2009-03-15 [arthemis_]: Who won, who won?

2009-03-25 [Artsieladie]: Thank you for saying something here. It reminded me that I needed to place the winners on the page. :)
