Welcome to the Violet/ Purple round of the challenge! Something in your photo should be some shade of purple, and you have until midnight on September 20 to post your picture to the thread.

Minor photo editing is fine; but please, no major photoshop! Photos will be judged based on creativity, composition, and use of the color purple.

Dallis is showing off the prizes for the winner of this round-- a dress made by me, and socks from Hello Cool Cat.

Dallis actually looks like she's smiling in the photo!

The dress & socks is very pretty. I need to think up my violet entry.

Sailor Chibi Moon is one of the less frowny Dals, for sure!

I see TrueFan is also making use of PUDDLE goodies in the form of the robot and alien hat. Very cute!

Applecandy has a very interesting looking plant in her photo. I know I've seen it before but I don't know what it is.

With all that purple hair, who needs clothing? Very Happy

Does ULTRA VIOLET count as VIOLET?

Challenge Six~ Violet/ Purple~Deadline Sept. 20 Dal_purple

Yeah, Lipoca is late this round, the little slacker, so this is more of an honorary (or is that ornery) appearance than a competitive entry.

Woot! Thanks for all the awesome purple entries! Purple is my favorite color, so I had fun judging this round.

applecandy~ Great nature shot! I love the slightly other-worldly look of the flowers, and how well they go with Siggie’s hair.

KiraKira~ This one was full of my favorite shade of pure purply purple! I’m very impressed with Shae’s ability to stay on that unicorn. This looks like it could be the cover of a very interesting fantasy novel!

TrueFan~ The combination of purple and gray/ silver is awesome! I love your rocky background, and Skirr’s little props are adorable!

CornflowerBlue~ So lovely and whimsical! Benny looks like a little fairy in the garden. I love her outfit, little birdy friend, and all those beautiful flowers.

Alliecat~ So much purple! I love the adoring gaze Rosa is giving Samantha as she sniffs her flowers (and how Samantha, in typical Dal fashion, is kind of ignoring her). And that background fabric is gorgeous!

davidd~ Such an awesome and atmospheric shot! I love how the red and blue balance out to create some violet tones. (And after Lipoca did the Oompa Loompa dance in the Orange thread, I have to say her purple hue in this pic is giving me Violet Beauregarde vibes!)

So to pick a winner, I came up with this whole numeric formula (and I'm really not a math person...) with points awarded for creativity, composition, and overall use of purple. I actually ended up with a tie between KiraKira and CornflowerBlue, but I'm going to go with KiraKira as the winner since she had more purple points. Congratulations, KiraKira! Please PM me with your address, and I will get the dress and socks mailed... soon-ish?

Surprised

Holy Moly--this was unexpected, but thank you, thank you, thank you! It may not look it, but setting up that photo was hard. I wanted to make sure all Shae's bits were covered. And then she kept falling off the unicorn. It was very frustrating. Simple to plan out the photo in my head, but reality turned out to be a different matter entirely.

Thanks so much. It has been a crap week, so finding out is such a nice surprise.

Smile

Congrats again! I often say 90% of doll photography is staging, so I can imagine the 'fun' you had setting up.

Congratulations, KiraKira! Your photo was seemingly simple, but apparently not the execution of it. Its surprising how hard it is to get Dals to sit on things. I've found taping or wiring a doll in place is often easier than trying to get them to balance on something. All that matters is that it doesn't show in the photo.

Cute and clever pic, KiraKira! Nicely done!

And yes, the strategic draping of the hair was quite impressive!

Hello.  I thought I should post here with the pretty prize that dargosmydaddy sent months ago.  I only got around to opening it now.  What happened was, I guess when I received it in the mail, I had put the envelope in my "to do" basket.  Then it kinda got buried under a lot of random stuff I needed to deal with.  Anyway, I'm sorry for how late this is.  The dress and socks are so cute.  Thanks, dargosmydaddy.  I really appreciate it.

Shae loves the pretty dress.  She honestly does prefer wearing clothing to hiding behind all her hair.
