I received an awesome note last night from , and upon opening it discovered this adorable photo!
based on my painting:
I had never thought of anyone cosplaying my Doctor Who artwork before, and it touched me so much. I could not stop smiling! I'm still smiling a day later. It was such a wonderful gesture, and an unexpected joy to see my visions given a whole new level of life and meaning. It was a much-needed treat in the middle of a very demanding work month.
Since I have not hosted a contest in years, I was thinking that this might be a fun theme to play with, something more casual and creative (and a reason for fellow Whovians to dress up, if you have costumes)? If anyone might be interested in giving it a try, here are the rules and prizes (so far):
-Choose one (or more) of my Doctor Who artworks from my gallery HERE (or HERE) and try to cosplay it to the best of your ability. Super massive points for pose accuracy and attention to detail, but of course any effort alone is appreciated!
-When you post your photo/s online, please link to the image that inspired the photo. Submit your entry to me here by DA note, or you can also contact me via Tumblr or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
-Please don't substitute Doctors or companions -if the artwork is of the Eighth Doctor, don't cosplay Ten or Eleven in the same role; if the companion is River, don't substitute with Jack or Martha, etc. Please try to re-create the artwork as it was originally intended.
-Contest is currently open until the end of the year (1am January 1st is the tentative deadline!) All entries will be posted here in my journal as they are submitted, for others to see and enjoy.
Prizes: The winners will each receive:
-A hand-signed print of any artwork of their choice from my gallery!
-A grab-bag of other art goodies from me.
-A feature in my journal here, and perhaps also a permanent post on my Tumblr account and Meadowhaven website.
-(If anyone would like to donate more prize incentives for the winners, please send me a note!)
