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).

2008-07-09 [blood_fairy21]: this sounds fun!!

2008-07-09 [Jitter]: :D

2008-07-09 [Mordigen]: I agree, this does sound really really fun --- It'll be a bitch to judge though, because there's so much potential for such a huge range of items.
