Dolls Dorado - Win a monkey! [WINNERS]! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Yarrhoys,

Spring has come and so it's the time to let your pets roam outside... And you are left without anything to cuddle. You surely miss your hedgehog who was so soft hibernating next to your pillow...
So as some very wise musicians sang ages ago: Everybody needs somebody and as we are pirates we have to look ourselves for our cuddle-happiness. As shanghaiing your best hearties when ever you feel the urge to cuddle them probably leads to unwanted attention of the authorities, crafting something sounds like the best option! To encourage your craftsmanship there will be some rewards for the best dolls!

Rules:
- Make a doll depicting your best pirate hearty, take pictures of it and upload them to the entry thread.
A doll is a 3D-object that can be picked up and held and one which has depth. So, just cutting out a shape from a piece of paper or cardboard and painting it wouldn't count as a doll, but a modeled figurine with a flat back is fine.
- Only one entry per pirate
- You have to make your entry yourself
- You have to make your entry for this competition.
- To participate post to the entry thread with the following
Your pirate name and ocean
a link to the pirate page of the hearty you made the doll for
A picture in [img] tags of the finished doll
Links to the following pictures all containing a physical name plate stating your name, ocean and Doll Dorado 2014
materials
2 work in progress in different stages
2 of the finished doll in different angles
- Any entries posted or edited past the deadline (May 25th 11.59 pm PDT) are disqualified.

Prizes:

1st prize: A tan monkey, a 2-person portrait for you and the hearty you depicted. (1 additional copy included) and a commemorative trinket.
2nd prize: A cupid class war brig named Hearty Dolla, a 2-person portrait for you and the hearty you depicted. (1 additional copy included) and a commemorative trinket.
3rd prize: A cupid class sloop named Hearty Dolla (if on another Ocean than 2nd place or Friendly Dolla), a 2-person portrait for you and the hearty you depicted. (1 additional copy included) and a commemorative trinket.
Honorable Mentions: A 2-person portrait for you and the hearty you depicted. (1 additional copy included) and a commemorative trinket.

Oooo such a wonderful idea!!! But how to choose a hearty when there are so many great ones!!!
Also confirming...does the doll have to be soft and cuddley (yarn/cloth etc), or can they be made of clay that is not so cuddley?

It will be the same "formula" as your page ( http://cerulean.puzzlepirates.com/yoweb/pirate.wm?target=Forestria ), with their name in place of yours.

If there is a reason to not portrait your hearty but make something creative deriving from his name or interests it's also fine and appreciated. Some characteristics should still be the same, but if your hearty wears different clothes every other day there is no need to use the clothes in the portrait.

For example some entries I made in the OM-Dolls-Galore-Event:

Forculus out of forks: (with his usual clothing)
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=189687&offset=20#2575176

Clotho as a cloth O: (with her buns)
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=189686&offset=20#2574353

Cephalopod as an octopus: (with his injuries and hat)
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=189686&offset=20#2576423

Or Greenbones from Herowena as a green skeleton:
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=189688#2572864

So feel free to whatever interpretation of your hearty.

Still not sure if I can finish mine in time...unless my lovely heartie changes his portrait to a chunk of clay with legs sticking out of it...then I'm fine :D

WINNERS! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Ahoy,

It took somewhat longer to judge this contest but we're finally finished and have results.

As there were 2 of the 4 entries that should have been disqualified (time out and not all of the needed photos provided), I asked the participants who sent in valid entries and both of them didn't mind to take those entries in. That's more generous than anyone can expect of both of them, so they might find another dolly in their inventory.

But now:

The winner is Herowena from Cerulean with a creative way to not only make a very "Dexla-looking" doll but also take in her interests in a very creative way. Have fun with your new "Furdoll"

Second place is Yvchen from Opal with a very life-like Yucca-Doll. Have fun with your Herzlicher Kameraden-Panzerwels (ship names in German are sometimes very funny :D) (I did not receive an answer if that name is ok, so it might still change)

On a very close third place is Parthenope from Cerulean with her very shiny, colourful and boldfaced Gnirps. I hope you have a good time with your Hearty Dolla.

And an honorable mention for a very work-intensive cuddlyness of Viscose (though I think it's rather wool) goes to Bisca of Emerald who almost drew with 3rd place.


All winners will get a 2-person portrait (with additional copy) of themselves with their doll-originals. So please find a time that suits you and contact Clotho via PM or a petition with the subject: FAO Clotho - Doll Dorado portrait to make the details, she will then provide you with Poe and Dubs (where needed) to make the portrait.

If you won a ship you might have to trade it back and forth to an alt to have full access to it.

Congratulations to you all!

And last but not least a very big THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Clotho, Yumisa and the judges.

Oh my goodness, thank you very much! I am beyond thrilled! It was a treat to see everyone else's interpretations. I love that Yvchen was able to make clay look so perfectly like billowing cloth. Parthenope choosing that tongue-out expression was hilariously good. Bisca's must have been a reverse voodoo doll that brought her hearty back. :) Congratulations, all!

Edits, because auto-correct did not believe anyone's name. Grrr.
