The Backstage: Alternative Entries!

Recommended Posts

It's been a while, so I've got quite a few entries to share:

And then there's the one I'd intended to send in, until I began to feel like it looked a little familar. So I looked through previous rounds, and found out that @Musical_Shoyru created a very similar entry for the Quirky Quiggles round. Either I subconsciously copied it, or great minds think alike (and Neopets happens to provide some great wearables for this character). I did end up changing mine a little - I even had the same background at first - while considering sending it in, but it didn't feel right, so I'll just post it here instead:

Willy Wonka

Those are all really great, Nielo! My favourite is the Matilda and the Snape one :heart:

Thanks! :smile:

I seriously considered entering those, but I have the bad habit of trying to predict how many people will do a similar entry. I'm always wrong, so you'd think I'd have learned by now to stop doing that, but no.

If it makes you feel any better, I always try to predict things about the contest (how many people will enter, if anyone will do a particular idea, who will win, etc.) and I am often wrong, haha. But you know, next time you can ask me if someone has done something, if you want. I can't provide any details, but if you simply ask "Has anyone done X?", I'll give you a yes or no answer.

Lol. :)

Thanks, I keep forgetting to do that. Perhaps this'll help me remember next time!

As promised, a whole bunch of Time Travellers:

Barry the Time Sprout            Calvin & Hobbes:                  Philip J. Fry
(Robert Rankin novels):         
                                            (Futurama):

Time travel tourists:

And last but not least, my Back to the Future customs. I really wanted to send one of these in, especially Doc or Marty (Biff was a bit of a last minute addition), because Back to the Future has been my favourite film since I was 9, but I wasn't entirely happy with how they turned out (because I love these films so much, I might've been a tad too obsessed with wanting them to be perfect).

Marty McFly:                Doc Brown:                  Biff Tannen:

Here was my other time traveler for #52. I tried to do Marty, but I couldn't get him right. For such an iconic character, there were pretty few items I found that really fit with him. No skateboard, no sports almanac-looking booklet, etc.

Yup, I had the exact same problem! I'd really expected to at least find a skateboard, but none of the skateboard items on Neopets are wearable.

(I like how we both decided to use a Shoyru though. :D)

Here are a couple recent ones:

Easter Cybunny

I did this Spring cleaning one, then re-read the theme and its description: dress up a Cybunny in celebration of Easter. Oops. So, I scrapped this "Spring" themed one and instead went for a Negg-painting scheme.

medium_preview.png

Superheroes

I started these two fellows, but really wasn't sure how to finish them or give them that extra something. But then I thought, "a Bruce as Bruce Wayne," and I promptly abandoned these ones. Here's Wolverine and The Incredible Hulk:

for the gods theme I chose the Greek hero Hercules (he was a demi-god) 

with some of his accomplished missions ( Nemean Lion - Belt of Hippolyte -  Cattle of Geryon - Apples of the Hesperides)

he is standing at the ruins of Delphi waiting for the oracle to appear . holding his famous club 

the snake on his arm is a reminder of the snakes that Hera sent to kill him as a baby , which he easily strangled in his crib

My brain did a dirty on me and didn't let me submit my Runway entry, nor even let me come on here at all for the past few days, so I'll post mine here instead, lol.

I went for Osiris, the god of life and death and the flooding of the Nile. He's one of the ones who married his sister (Isis), though I think they pretty much all did that didn't they.

I was pretty pleased with myself for being able to portray his bandaged feet, though I wonder if they were like that from permanent athlete's foot from causing all that flooding. 🤭 and why on earth was he green?! :huh:

HAHAHAHAHAHA ewww LOL

Poor Osiris was murdered and dismembered by Set. Isis probably picked up the fragments and bandaged everything back together together. Afterwards Isis got pregnant by the resurrected(?) mummy-Osiris (but HOW?!) before he died again. All things considered I think athlete's foot is the least of the problem here 😅

The Egyptians were basically melodramatic soap-opera behaviour taken about 15 times past the next level, weren't they. 😅

His green hue is putrefaction then? LOVELY! 😲

Since I am brand new to the forum, I have missed the opportunity to enter many Runway contests, but I made a list of previous topics/themes, and am working my way through them for my own amusement.

My Dream Pet:

medium_preview.png

Literary Characters
This is Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter

medium_preview.png

Alice from Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carrol

Back To School:

medium_preview.png

Nabile and the Great Desert Race (Games Galore)

@jellysundae - your Osiris customization looks amazing, I shall have to try and make an Egyptian god customization myself.

Edit 22.09.18:
My alternative entry for the Special Edition Runway with Gold, Silver and Bronze theme.

medium_preview.png

I submitted a silver themed look for the contest, then I was browsing golden items to make a look for fun.. The Golden Cage with Naleap item caught my eye, and made me think of Princess Jasmine in Aladdin for some reason. Just the idea of a princess living in a grand castle/palace but having limited freedom. Like a caged bird - the cage is luxorious, but the bird still longs to fly free. Which is why I added the golden key balloon. This may be the better entry of the two I made, certainly a more inspired one! :P

Although I ended up liking my other special edition entry better, I really wanted to try out Clay for a Bronze/Copper-ish look :D

@TokaValencia That looks lovely, great use of layers 🙂 I never realized how pretty a Clay Neopet could be!

Below are more of my made-for-fun entries to previous Runway rounds


This is Anubis, the Egyptian God of death, embalming and mummification. (For the Runway God/Goddess round, Greek, Roman or Egyptian)

This is Rainbow Rockstar, for the Rainbow Pride Runway:

I have a few of them from recent rounds!

Slumber Party

I did this traditional girly one, then was like, "nah!", and submitted a goth one.

Greek/Roman/Egyptian Gods

I had actually started this Hermes (and a Hermes actually won, whoops).

Special Edition #2

I also tried out an all-bronze and all-silver custom. I actually liked the silver one a lot, but the bronze was just... I struggled.
