Periodic Portraits 2017 Edition! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

We'll be creating whisks to creatively named ships throughout the year. These will be special locations for you to take portraits solo, with your friends, and maybe with an Ocean Master or two.

We will be posting dates and unique ship names for each ocean. There will be a whisk on the events tab of the notice board which will remain up for the whole day. These are NOT free portraits - it's just an opportunity for you to get a portrait with a special ship name and maybe a special background. We will be choosing names based on the season, holidays, or the current theme for the limited edition portrait backgrounds.

Feel free to make suggestions here. Remember it needs to make sense in the following phrase: "Commissioned by Hera on the fine vessel ..........." The ship names should be unique and not exist on the ocean. We may end up having different, but similar, ship names on different oceans. You can see the ship names we used in 2013 here, in 2014 here , in 2015 here and 2016 here .

April is so very nearly here and to cheer myself up at the rapidly cooling weather in my part of the world I'm setting up portrait ships. Yay!

April 14th - 17th is Easter! Recover from that chocolate overload on board the "of Rabbits" and "covered in eggs"

April 22nd is Earth Day and even if the weather is cold you can pretend otherwise on board the fine vessel "In Full Bloom"

April 25th is ANZAC day for our Australian and New Zealander pirates. Commemorate the day on board the "Lest We Forget"

August will soon be here - the year is flying by! To distract myself from the snow, I've been setting up portraitships for everyone to have fun on!


August 5th is Sandcastle Day! Hard to make sandcastles while wearing mittens, but I'm sure if you are in warmer climates you will be out there playing and "making sandcastles"

August 9th is one of my favourite days! Book Lovers Day will find me "lost in a book"

August 16th is something I'm sure all pirates mark on their calendars: Rum Day! Hop aboard "Barrels o' Rum"

August 21st is the date of a total eclipse visible in North America. Lets hope the skies remain clear and y'all are "Totally Eclipsed"

The days are getting warmer and longer over in my little corner of the world! That means September must soon be here!


September 4th is Labor Day in the US! I'll be suitably envious of y'all while you are "enjoying the long weekend"

September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Huzzah! We'll be enjoying the day on not one, not two, but THREE portrait ships! Take yer pick from "of old salts" , "Shiver Me Timbers" or "Lingua Piratica"

September 25th sees the start of a whole new season! Enjoy the cooler temperatures on board "Falling For You"

(Sorry, no release time yet for the three last portrait backgrounds - they may be being saved for something special!)

Any news about when the "surprise release" backgrounds might come out? The spring release backgrounds are still up and it's October.
