Change in Due Date!

A few of you have agreed that it would be a good idea to have more time for this round. Please get them in by November 30th - the last day of November. That works out great since this theme is November :)

Honorable Mentions

Starting from next time, I'll be doing honorable mentions. Like Karalee said in a comment, it's helpful to hear what the host thinks and likes about certain pictures - I know it helped me last season!

Also, what do you think about me giving you a few extra days this round since we're all a little busy around this time of year? Tell me what you think.

Round 2 theme!

Sorry I wasn't able to do this earlier! I thought I'd answer some of your questions that you asked me in comments first:

1. Yeah, the pictures were kind of blurry, I apologize! I did it differently that time, I won't do it like that again.

2. I am still thinking whether to do honorable mentions or not. If you all want them, I could do them. For some reason I never really liked them, though.

3. Also, some of you wanted me to let Carolyn stay in. I would if I could, but I can't break the rules. :( For one thing, it wouldn't be fair for the other people who got eliminated for not getting it in. I was really sad to have to eliminate her :(

So, now:

This round's theme is "Why I love November". In this picture, try to capture what it is you like about this month. When you think of November, what's the first thing that pops into your head? Whether it be Thanksgiving, the first snowfall, or something else - try to capture it in this picture.

I hope you have fun with this! You all did amazing last time.

You have til the 27th, which will be a Saturday.

Btw, Shelby did get her picture in and everything, but it just didn't work. I'll post it up as soon as I can, I think she'll just need to send it a different way is all.

Now comes the very hardest part of judging...having to eliminate people. :( First, I have to eliminate Carolyn and Danielle because they didn't get their pictures in. :( And also (this was a hard decision!) Emily. I'm very sorry, you three! Like I said, it's very hard to decide - especially on the first round! I hope you all had fun while you were in it, you were great contestants! Remember that Season 6 isn't so far away!

I'll post the new theme soon (hopefully tomorrow)!

PMing Info

Oh dear, sorry I keep updating! :)

I just had to let you know that on the message board, I made a special contest host account. It's just for getting PMs from the people who can't email me their pics. It was very confusing last time using my own account, and I think this will make it more organized.

So, please PM me at "AGCcontesthost" instead of mine for the pics if you can't email me. Thanks!

Round 1!

Hi! I have almost everyones pics up! Again, you all did a great job! I'm sorry I didn't get the link thing working yet. I'll try to fix that soon.

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for....ROUND 1!

Now, before I reveal the theme, I want to say a few things. For this theme, let your imagination run wild :) Be as creative as you can! It's a versatile theme, so you can make it turn out how you want it.

The theme is...Fairy-Tale.

There is MANY different ways you can bring this theme into your picture, firstly because there's many different kinds of fairytales. There's the magical disney-like princessy fairytales, there's the cute and funny fairytales, and then there's what I call the "Grimm" fairytale - which are dark and mysterious.

Btw, I don't mind how you bring the fairytale theme into it - you could make a theme by acting out a fairy-tale story (click HERE to get ideas!), or you could have your doll reading a fairytale, or whatever you'd can think of!

I'm going to give you 8 days, which will be the 16th. I'll try to get them up the next day! Please don't wait til the last minute! Unfortunatly, this time I'll have to eliminate people :(

I hope you have fun with this theme! Remember - be creative!

Headshots are up!

Hey guys!

As you can see, I have the pictures up on the side! I love them all, GOOD JOB!

Those of you who haven't got them in yet, please do so soon :( But like I said, no one gets eliminated this time or anything.

And sorry about the links on the pics, I'll try and fix the problem soon!

I'll post the new round's theme soon!

UPDATE: You may be wondering "what on earth is going on with the blog's design!?!". Well, because I posted the pics at the side, it didn't look right with the last design. It had borders around the pics, and it didn't look great that way. I hope the changes are all right!

Just A Quick Update...

...about the special assignment! I'm gonna give you, like I said, til the 7th instead of the 5th. So if you haven't sent them in, please do so soon! I have 9 photos so far. I can't wait to put them up, they are all great! :)

Also, Gabrielle gave me the idea of linking the pictures up with peoples blogs - so if you have a blog, I could make it so people could get to your blog by clicking on the headshot. Comment your blog URL if you'd like me to do that for you.

Contestant List and Special Assignment!

Hey everyone! I want to thank you all for entering this Season of AGC! I hope you'll all have lots of fun :)

First, here's the list of contestants! If you signed up already, but I missed you on the list, please contact me and I'll fix it!

Jasmine with Marisol
Karalee with Ruthie
Iona with Miley
Libby with Becky
Sonja with Adair
Carolyn with Julie
Quinlyn with Kirsten
Nutti Netti with Mia
Sara with Eve
Anne with Rebecca
Danielle with Ali
Livvy with Nelly
Alisha with Jess
Gabrielle with Alice
Shelby with Savannah
Britts with Rose
Emily with Elizabeth

Wow, that's seventeen people!

And now...I have to tell you about a really pre-assignment!

Karalee came up with this cool idea (thanks again Karalee, for telling me about it!). Let me explain:

This is not included in the regular rounds, this is a special assignment. Nobody will get eliminated or anything, it's just for fun! All you have to do is email me a headshot of the doll that you're using for this contest. Then, on the side of this blog, I will put up all the pictures and the names of the dolls. That will let everyone get to know all the "contestants" that will be in this Season! Here's an example of what I mean, it's at the right hand side of the blog beneath the "meet my dolls" button: http://agdollprincess.blogspot.com

If you are not sure what I mean, you can comment, email (americangirlcontest@gmail.com), or PM me with any questions you might have.

As I said, nobody will get eliminated in this round, but please try to get the picture in by November 5th! (that gives you today and 4 more days, I hope that's enough!) UPDATE: I decided to give you guys a little more time, since only 6 out of the 17 people have gotten it in so far. Is two more days okay? That will be the 7th. Please get them in soon! :)

Have a great day,

Your Contest Host, Hannah
