The La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant - The First Category - 2

Mac: "And we're baaaack!"

Meg: "That's right folks, the night is only half done here."

Mac: "You still with us Gany?"

Gany: "I'm not going anywhere.  I think I'll trip on my dress if I try and move."

Meg: "You know it's called a sari."

Gany: "Fine...'sari' I said anything.  Here comes Leslie Baker."

The La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant - First Night Commercial Break

Tonight's presentation of the La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant is brought to you by the following sponsors:

Mac: "Doctor" - another fine transformation story available at"

Meg: "My gecko-sense is tingling...I'm betting she's not really a doctor!"

Mac: "No spoilers Meg!  But I am getting a serious Neil Patrick Harris vibe off those swank goggles."

And also by:

Mac: "The Supermodel Transformation Kit - exclusively from cluedog and"

Meg: "Smokin'!"

The La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant - The First Category - 1

Meg: "Hey Everyone!  Welcome to the first night of this year's La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant!"
Mac:  "We're really sorry we couldn't make it to the initial introductions...the best laid plans of mice and men and all that."

Meg:  "Funny story there...we were visiting our friends Hank and Gany.  Right when we were getting ready to head out, Hank got stuck in the doorway...can you believe it?  I believe she's currently undergoing something described as an 'udder reduction procedure.'"
Mac: "She's being milked Meg."
Meg:  "Call it what you will....there were gallons of white liquid splashing everywhere!  Coulda sworn I was on board the 'Nostromo'!"
Mac:  "Anyhooooo, mooooving on....looks like things are starting.  I see Candy walking down the red carpet now.  She appears to be wearing a Vietnamese Ao Dai - that can only mean that tonight we're seeing the 'traditional/cultural outfit' competition."

Meg:  "Well duh.  Didn't you read the script?  Why do you think we've got these keen hats?  I'm like 'Reach for the sky pilgrim!'.....and you're like, 'Elementary my dear Megamilipod.' And why we've got Gany decked out in that get-up."
Mac:  "That's right - everybody, take a good look at Gany!  She'll be acting as our roving reporter for the next several nights."
Gany: "Frankly, this is a pretty embarrassing - I've told you both a thousand times - Gany is short for 'Ganymede'."
Meg:  "Don't sweat it, you look gorgeous - doesn't she Mac?"

Gany: "I feel ridiculous.  I can't even see my feet."
Mac: "Calm down - she's're smokin!  And speaking of which, here comes our first contestant."

Fashion Pageant Contestant Transformation Poll Results

Well folks, thanks for voting - the polls are closed - and the results can be found after the break.  It looks like the La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant is well and truly underway - I'm pretty sure Mistress Arianna's got some big surprises planned for us in the near future.

Lunate - One More Poodle-Girl

Still in our little intermission with the Fashion Pageant for a few more days.

In the meantime, as I said in the last post...3,000,000 views deserves a little something special.  Lunate put this piece together for me a little while back but I didn't have a good chance to post it till now.

I think it turned out pretty well - just one more benchmark sequence.  I've got some ideas on other projects with them in the future too.

Hope you folks all have a Merry Christmas!  Fashion Pageant posting resumes this weekend.  Please vote and get the word out to other folks to vote.  I think we should have more than 250 votes for this many views!

On a completely separate appears The Transformation Repository has now passed 3 million views!

Sweet.  I already know I missed my 400th post a few posts back. 

I think I can swing a special post on Christmas with some new art...even though we've got the pageant in progress.

Will have a few more announcements this week as well - stay tuned.

The La De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant Update - Intermission - Now with poll!

Well folks, we now come to the end of the first portion of this pageant.  I suppose you could say we're about half-way through, even though we haven't even begun to see the real fashions here.

A "break" was needed so that Mistress Arianna and Candy (and company) could help the contestants start "changing" into their outfits.  There was also a slight delay in the arrival of our guest commentators - something about a "wardrobe malfunction". this brief interlude for the holidays - I've posted a poll for the viewers choice award for best transformation.  All the prizes for this overall project will be decided by viewers voting, rather than any decision by me.

Any viewer can vote for more than one project - but I would request that each person not vote more than once - please don't try and game the system.  But by all means, please pass the link to your friends and other TF fans and ask them to vote.  I know with 22 can be pretty hard to decide on a favorite, but hopefully we won't wind up with any ties here.  That said, since this poll is running for about a week, that still gives us a few days at the end if we need a run-off vote to clear things up before the end of the year.

Just to be clear, the winners you decide on will receive a cash prize from me via paypal - $150 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place, and $50 for 3rd place. 

Also, as a heads up for viewers, my schedule in January is somewhat in flux after MLK Jr. Day.  That is to say...not certain about internet access for the end of the month (just that small period) so the fashion portions will be a little more compressed than I had originally anticipated.

For the moment, this is the intended posting schedule:

30 Dec: Category 1 - Traditional Wear or Period Costumes (viewer voting from 30 Dec - 5 Jan).

2 Jan: Category 2 - Swimwear (viewer voting from 2 Jan - 8 Jan)

6 Jan: Category 3 - Fur and/or Tight and Shiny Outfits (viewer voting from 6 Jan - 12 Jan)

9 Jan: Category 4 - Lingerie (viewer voting from 9 Jan - 15 Jan)

13 Jan: Category 5 - Evening Gown (viewer voting from 13 Jan - 19 Jan)

For each of these categories, there will be $100 in prizes for the viewers choice for best outfits - $50 for 1st place, $30 for 2nd place, and $20 for 3rd place.

Once again, thanks for viewing and voting - and please pass the word - this is the biggest project I've ever coordinated for the site and I'd like to get the artists the exposure they deserve for their excellent work.  Any questions/comments/feedback - always appreciated via email or comments!

For the record, all of these entries were fully commissioned and paid for up front by me - no gift art pieces here - see also prize money for viewer voting.  Your donations definitely help with getting quality art like this out to the community though.  Support is always appreciated.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all!  And may the best transformation win!

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Temp-Tress

Cecilia Zorra is a 26 year old journalist who lives in Madrid.  She was extremely jealous that somebody else was given the job of covering the fashion pageant...until she got her invitation.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Jacques00

After graduating college, Kalina Korovin works as a butterfly gardener at a local garden and practices amateur biology and alternate agriculture at her own home garden.  Her studies have given her a deep interest in nature and the science involved in understanding it.  Due to her work, she dresses quite modestly and joining a fashion pageant seems to be the least likely activity on her to-do list, though receiving an invitation to Arianna's Le De Baucherie Magique Fashion Pageant has definitely piqued her interest.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Cobalt_K

Stefanie (or "Stef," as she likes to be called) was raised in the bustling urban environment of newly-unified Berlin.  She embraced each fashion trend that sprang up, making her decision to become a professional clothing and jewelry model a very easy one.  She is also a steadfast weight watcher. She semi-reluctantly gave into the peer pressure of keeping a wafer-thin build to stay competitive in the modeling industry, although she does what she can to keep her health up.  She is unhappy with what she has to put her body through to meet the standards of the industry, but in her spare time her hobby as an amateur musician keeps her spirits up.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - AutumnNatural

James was born into a blue collar family in 1985, and grew up the son of a auto plant worker in the suburbs of Detroit.  Throughout his childhood he experienced many hardships, mainly economic instability, which influenced his decision to break from his fathers foot steps and pursue his life's interests; marine biology.  It was vacationing on the shores of Lake Huron and Lake Michigan as a young boy which first inspired a passion for preserving and protecting those beautiful bodies of water.  

He was apprehensive to attend college and pursue his dream, but his uncertainty was quickly washed away when he found he excelled in his classes and quickly became one of the youngest researchers hired by the Department of Natural Resources.  Today James works a lot, struggling to find time for his personal life.  He hopes to one day inspire not just the state of Michigan, but the whole world, to protect these wonders of the natural world.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - solios

As we've recently been seeing, this pageant has allowed a number of folks a well-deserved new lease on life - although I'm not sure of any quite as extreme as this one.

Meet 93 year old Margaret Eloise Studebaker-Ormsby, retired teacher and WWII Veteran, currently residing in the Falkland Islands.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Darkoshen

Dan Malone - 40s - single- living in the big city hasn't been an easy life for an old country boy like Danny.  He works at a miserable job at the grocery store to make meet's ends, and comes home alone to an empty filthy apartment.  He yearns to be young again, to frolic in the farm with his animal friends.  Deep down he has always felt a strong connection to the farm animals, especially his old cow he called Margaret.  He took care of her since she was a calf. Now the only link he has to her is the milk he gets from the grocery store, which coincidentally is the only thing in his fridge. Surprisingly, he finds an invitation in the back of the sticker of the milk bottle. It's an invitation to Arianna's pageant, where dreams come true.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - leandro-sf

Another OC makes an appearance - but this might be her first public appearance in any work.  Please welcome Dorothea Cerviel.  Looks can be deceiving - especially in Purgatory.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - cluedog

When you get an invitation like this, you should probably check for the fine print.  I mean, I suppose it's possible there isn't any....but it's worth checking first.  Terry (now Teri) Beaver isn't quite the same since he got his invitation.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - powerman2000

Kim Li is a fashion design student that got a grant from Zig University. She is grateful, but is sometimes requested by an unknown source to test strange new beauty products. Usually this wouldn’t be a problem, but these products tend to yield …weird results. Her body, including her bust and butt, have been known to be affected as well as her overall appearance.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - DrGonz

After years of band-hopping as a guitarist, playing in small town bars and parties, Leslie Baker has anything but success to show for his efforts.  

But after a strange and unexplained change takes place, an opportunity presents itself that seems oddly coincidental.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - caphca

Next up, we have a Lithuanian beauty....who winds up even more beautiful.

Please welcome Agne Balthis.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - mamabliss

I suppose it's only natural that some folks will have more extreme reactions to Mistress Arianna's invitations.  Think of it as a magical allergy.  Is there a in the house?

Fashion Pageant Contestant - blackshirtboy

Max had the day off from school, and the house to himself when the strange letter came. Addressed to him, he found it was an invitation, but he hardly had time to register the words before the paper, and the world around him seemed to loose focus, like reality itself was becoming less real, and then he started to change. Within the span of a few panicked breaths he watched as his body matured into some bizarre caricature of a woman, something cartoonish and alien, though his new curves seemed... soft... and his new skin pleasantly warm.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Zanfadar

When 27-year old model Jennifer Jackson skimmed over a reference to "bunny girls" in the package included in her invitation from Mistress Arianna.....I don't think this is quite what she was expecting.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Wrenzephyr2

Another early entry (tomorrow's will probably be early afternoon).

Sam has attended several schools over the course of her childhood, her parents constantly moving all over Europe for archaeological studies before settling in Winchester in the UK. However, before she started her Junior year at High School her parents sent her to live with her sister, Jenny, in DA City. She was less than pleased with the latest move, having finally found a place to settle in. It didn't help that her sister's roommate was a guy, some idiot named Wren. 

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Mr-DNA

Our contestant today (albeit delayed a little longer than I had expected - another long day) comes from a little place you may have heard of before - The Underburbs.

Rosemary Morgan (age 42) is a widowed mother of two: her son Damon and her daughter Angela.  They reside in the small New England town of Pendleton.  As of last Halloween night, Pendleton fell under a strange mist that turned over half its residents into monsters.  Rosemary is now a green-skinned witch with a flying broomstick, but still spends much of her time attending to her motherly duties.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - LordAltros

Well, things turn out differently for some folks. 

Allisen was on a vacation trip from Sacramento when she received her invitation from Mistress Arianna.  Seems like the ruins she was photographing in Southern Mexico had a little influence on her.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Oppaiman

Well, tomorrow's post should come significantly earlier in the day - hopefully makes up for some of the delays this week.

As for this next entry...let's just call her Annie.  Seems she's something of a fitness buff - at least she looks the part.

Fashion Pageant Contestant - Arania

Every now and then, when I see an entry as beautiful as this, I remember that I really need to work on more 'taurs.

Satine Ryder is the 22 year old daughter of a wealthy British household - raised properly - taught etiquette, manners, and how a young woman is expected to act.
