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".
So....in 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 entries...it 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!
