Forum Customization Contest!

No offense taken. :) Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of Disney, but this one is better than the others. Instead of marrying some stupid prince (sorry but those kind of movies are too cheesy) it's more about family love. I think you'll like it. ;)

 

And, if it makes you feel better, I edited my original post so it shows her name. ^_^

 

I say marrying a prince is more dated than cheesy, reflecting a time period whose standards we no longer believe in. Elsa even said in Frozen: "You can't marry a man you just met." Frozen is modern and even feminist, so I recommend it, Azurablue.

 

But we should end the conversation here because this is not the right board for it.

Do you mean you don't like Disney movies or faerie tales? I just wonder how it is possible to even avoid Frozen when it was everywhere, people making references to it and all...I didn't mean to come off as rude, and I'm glad you didn't take offense. I can be very blunt. But no, it doesn't make you stupid.

 

But, if you don't like Disney, I would not suggest watching OUAT because of the show's characters being loosely based off of their Disney counterparts.

 

One last comment because I don't know where else to post it. :laughingsmiley:

 

I am a big fan of OUAT and of the original tales (Grimm's and Anderson's), not what Disney has done to them. They were originally morality tales meant to teach children how to be good people and show them what being bad or immoral can get you. They rarely had happy endings. Why do I like OUAT? It's for an adult market and not representing itself as "the real thing". Disney caters to small children. The message is not getting to the audience that most needs it. Why? Because it would never sell if it were done as the tales were orginally told. *shrug* So, I avoid all Disney animation. There are only a few real life movies I indulge in, such as the Pirates Of The Caribbean series.... and that's mostly because of Johnny Depp.

 

That's it. All I have to say about it. Thanks to both Lady and Totu for explaining it to me and for your understanding. No offense was ever meant to Disney fans.

 

 

Sabs: How about pirates only, any species? Historical or fictional, serious or funny.... doesn't matter as long as it's a pirate. (Maybe this is was already suggested?)

I wonder if it's possible to do something that's themed to our mini sidekicks, the PetPets? That might make a good challenge.

Hey Guys! I had so much fun with this! I'm not sure how to do the links and screen shots, so here goes!

 

I went with two Poephins. I've had a super long week so they don't have much of a story. I imagined them being Sister Witches. One following the light and one the Darkness.

 

Here is the Light Peophin along with her link:

She's a user of the forbidden dark magic, so she has isolated herself so she can practice her craft without interference.

These are SO much fun! Is there a limit as to how many times we can participate? I'd like to be here every week if I can, but I don't want to seem greedy, unfair, obnoxious, etc. Please let me know! Anyway, here's my entry:

It was very fun to do two customizations as a single entry this time around, but oh man, it sure was hard to settle down with two that I liked and that also fitted the theme!

Here's my entry (click on the images to see them animated on DTI):


7dhdgPk.png o0Z3bf1.png

The Guardian of Light had been able to bring light to even the deepest of Neopia's oceans for centuries, but sadly, due to her lack of hind legs she has not ever been able to climb up to the darkest caves of Terror Mountain. Sadly, without any light to shine on them for so long, the creatures inhabiting this place soon became lifeless and angry. Especially the poor Boris that had for so long inhabited Terror Mountain's caves without ever seeing the light. After all these centuries in permanent darkness, the Boris began a horrible transformation into wretched creatures, only longing to bring darkness to all of Neopia since they no longer were able to endure the slightest hint of light without being blinded by it's brightness. Will the Guardian of Light ever find a way to restore the Boris and the rest of the creatures that inhabit the mountain to their former glory or will soon all of Neopia know what it feels like to live in permanent darkness?

Excellent! :thumbsup:

 

I was wondering, has there been a Mythology category? I thought that might be an interesting one for future contests, if it hasn't been done already. We could recreate mythological creatures, gods/goddesses and so on. What do you think?

Goodness, I debated between a bunch of alternatives. lol

You would never guess these Peophins are related. They are twin sisters. One was destined to cause great destruction, and the other to restore peace. They were separated at birth, but one day their paths will cross.

 

deboratibi - I like the mythology theme! :) There should be a good variety of wearable items for it. We could do that next!

Okay guys, this is going to be pretty nerdy, but bear with me.

I liked the idea of light coming out of darkness, and darkness coming out of light.

The Peophin is the combination of literal light (starlight) and metaphorical light (goodness and purity): the constellation form of Astraea, a personification of justice in Greek mythology who ascended to the heavens to flee from the wickedness of humanity.
Following the Greek mythology theme, for darkness the Skeith is Kakia, the Greek goddess of vice and moral badness, "depicted as a vain, plump and heavily made-up woman dressed in revealing clothes." She tempted people to evil; as seen here, she brings a shroud of darkness to even the clearest day.

Please click on at least the Peophin, the wings are so much better in flash.

Edit: Okay, the Skeith doesn't look decent as a picture either, please click on both! :D

Okay, this is my first time trying for this contest, so bear with me and my simplicity :*

 

Since I've started watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic lately, this is my try at Princess Celestia (light) and her younger sister, Nightmare Moon (dark) :)

 

(you should click them for movement, especially Nightmare Moon which got extremely weird while still :mellow: )

Um well, my Dark one's story is that she's training to be a witch. So she tries to steal a spell. if you click on the picture you can see her eyes moving about like "Oh darn, is someone behind me?"

And for the Light well, she's a cloud princess that's worried about the dark clouds above her which the work of my Dark witch.

They were best friends of course.

Wow! Everyone's got such awesome entries, I don't stand a chance. *lol*

 

 

Poor Gwendolyne! Her pretending to be the bravest in Neopia has gotten her into deep water this time. When the stories began to swirl around the town about a missing child and a ghostly presence haunting the centuries' old mansion on the edge of town, she bragged about how she would simply march right up to that spooky phantom and easily defeat it with her Sword of Fiery Flames. The townspeople, not realizing that it was all talk and no walk, called upon her to send the ghost packing. With everyone cheering her on as she set out for the distant house, she hadn't the courage to tell them she was just play-acting and her sword was only a toy.

 

medium_preview.png

The spirit waited on the porch steps, waited for a brave hero to come and break the curse that had been placed upon him when he'd come to explore the abandoned mansion. It was just last week, in fact, on a stupid schoolyard dare. When he had climbed up to the porch on the stroke of midnight, a black mist had spread out and enveloped the young Grundo, turning him instantly into a phantom Peophin that could only drift and wail plaintively around the front steps. If only his best friend, Gwendolyne were here. She would know what to do! She knew how to play the best games and she was always so brave. She would find a way to dispel the evil black mist and return him to his normal form.
