Season 10 | Round 1 \\ Theme

You've all been waiting for this, and now it's finally here!

Last season I really liked the first theme Willow used, so this one is basically gonna be the same;

All About Me

I want to get to know your dolls personality, so take a picture that describes them well. You can create a collage, but only one photo will be accepted (so you can put more than one photo together in a collage so that it becomes one photo, but I will only be posting one picture)

Because it's around Christmastime (or all late year holidays, whichever you celebrate) and I really want to do a theme related to that, I will be giving you about two weeks for this theme. 

You have up until Sunday, December 15th 2013 \\ 12 am (central time) to get me your photo.

Also, a couple more things to remind you of:
This isn't an easy competition. I don't want you to treat it as such, therefore all photos you send in need to be taken especially for this theme. NO digging back into the archives.
Also, if you're in need of tips, a pep talk or are wondering how I will be judging, see here.

When you send in your picture, please attach it to the email, and in the subject line of the message put:
"[your name] with [your dolls name] | Round 1"

  4. Great theme! I have so many ideas! (well, two...) I’m going to take the picture whenever I am not doing homework. Probably the very end of Sunday. No, I’ll make time. I’m a little bit responsible...

  9. I have a theme idea!!!!!! It would be awesome if we had an Under the Sea (©The Little Mermaid!) theme. I WOULD LOVE THAT. I don’t know about others, though. But I personally love The Little Mermaid. Or you could do The Little Mermaid...:-D Come on everyone, be positoove, not nogitive.

  17. Ummm, ok next time if you put a due date then that's the due date. It really is *mean* to all of us who have payed attention and have sent our photo's in. If those girls really want to be in this competition then they would have already sent their photo's in. So please keep the due date next time. A due date is a due date, and it should be final.

    1. So then I shouldn't be host. Because I asked Willow once to extend the due date, and she did it. I knew I wouldn't have time, and she was very nice to extend it.
      There was a third reason I extended the date as well, one I didn't mention; I like to give an email reminder and a post reminder the day of. I was able to get to neither of those because of how busy I am.
      And there is absolutely no way I would have been able to get the post up within this week. I am crazy busy, it's the week before I get off for break, and it's not going to be a fun week for me.
      So why not let them have the extra time if I can't post the pictures?
      Why not?
      I am very thankful for all the people who did send their pictures in on time, and in the future I may not be so lenient, but this time, I am.
      Why is it mean to you? You got your picture in, I'm not disqualifying you!
      And since I know how busy I am around this time, I can well imagine that others are busy too, maybe they seriously didn't have time to get to it. Why should they be disqualified before they even tried? Why should they be disqualified for a busy life?
      No, I make the rules for due dates this season.
      I wanted to give an extension, and so I did.
      If you win this season, then you can make the rules. Then you don't have to be lenient. You make the plays for your season, I'll make them for mine.

      Thank you.

      xo,

  19. Why have you crossed my name off the list? I haven't sent my picture in, my camera has broken! (before I had time to take my picture.) If you got my earlier comment about this, then OK.

    1. I did not get your earlier comment.
      I have crossed your name off because you failed to send your photo in on time. I'm posting the results now, and do not have yours. Sorry!
