Season 10 | Round 9 \\ Theme (FINAL ROUND)

Guys, oh gosh, I'm so sorry! Things happened, things got forgotten and/or pushed to the back burner. This is the final theme, so I'll just go ahead and finish it if you're still up for it.

BEFORE YOU READ THE THEME, READ THIS:
Underneath the theme are some reminders. Guys, these are not meant to be skipped over! Read them through. I will not accept any photos if I can tell that you haven't read these. So PLEASE read ALL of them.

Round 8 theme:

Historical Switcheroo 

We all look up to a historical character and wonder if we would be able to handle what they did. If we would have the bravery and courage. Well, I believe that we all do, but in different ways.
Either way, I want to see your doll representing their favorite historical character. This character has to be someone real, and I want lots of creativity. Find a photo and replicate it, if possible. It's up to you!

You have up until Friday, December 26th 2014 \\ 12 AM CST 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 taking your picture, please remember, what is the main focus of this photo? It's supposed to be the doll, and since the head is part of the doll, it needs to be in the picture.

While we're on that subject, I just want to remind you that you picked 1 doll to be in this contest with. One doll needs to be the main attraction of all the photos you take. Collages of all your dolls are cool, but that's not what we're looking for. Please make sure that your contest doll is in all the photos, yes, and all the collage photos with dolls in them (you can still have a collage photo of objects like pencils and paper, and even dogs etc., just make sure that any photos of dolls NEED to have your contest doll IN them, AND the main focus.

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"

All photos will be enlarged to extra large in each results post.
How they look is your problem, not mine.
Change your camera settings to the largest size you have, and you'll be fine. (this is not my problem if they don't look like what they looked like in a smaller size)

This is my season, I will be doing the dates and extensions and everything in my own way. I give lots of thought to everything I do here, so please trust my decision.

I am a busy person. I'm in highschool, I do not have a lot of time. My schedule is quite packed, and it's hard for me to get to things really quickly. Please do not ask when I will post the photos, please do not tell me to post the photos. I'll get to it, I promise.

a bit of an update

I realize I've not really been around much. These past couple of weeks have been stressful, hectic, and cause me to not only have no free time, but also not have enough time to finish what I need to do.

I am super sorry, as I did not see this coming. I hope to have the results posted on Saturday, but if that doesn't happen, expect them in a week or so.
Again, I'm so incredibly sorry, and this shouldn't happen again. Thank you so much for your patience!
