Thank you to everyone who participated in Dalicious 2020! I know I really got a pick-me-up from seeing the photos each round, and other people participating made me get out and take my own photos.

The grand prize winners are CornflowerBlue and Alliecat! Their scores were identical, so congratulations! You each get to pick one prize:

Dalicious 2020 prizes 1 by TrueFan, on Flickr

However, I am awarding awards to everyone! Like usual in a contest with multiple challenges, we all had really good photos and okay photos. Sometimes we feel inspired and sometimes we do not. I went through and picked my favorite photo from each person, and although I did not plan it that way, they are all in different challenges.

1 applecandy red by TrueFan, on Flickr

Applecandy wins the award for Most Serene photos. All of her photos were taken at the Italian seaside, and they have a sort of mystical calm about them. They allowed me too to visit the seaside and forget about life’s current craziness. My favorite from applecandy was red:

Dargosmydaddy gets the award for Most Improved (and I hope you’ll take that as a compliment!). We all start as a beginner photographer and get better the more we practice, and I really think you have taken your skills up a notch. Although you did not win any rounds, you came in second twice! So I’m going to send you a round prize. My favorite from dargosmydaddy was orange:

3 kirakira yellow by TrueFan, on Flickr

KiraKira is our Biggest Fan! We’ve all been going through some stuff this year, but you have really been going through some stuff the last couple years. I really admire how you stay engaged with doll forums and how you work your fandoms into your photos. My favorite from KiraKira was yellow (with Lady Godiva a close second):

4 truefan green by TrueFan, on Flickr

TrueFan - If anyone wants to assign me an award, have at it! My favorite of my own photos was green, Skirr and her Taeyang friend picking up garbage in the park, not only because it has a lot of green but because it also captures the idea of “being green.”

5 cornflowerblue blue by TrueFan, on Flickr

CornflowerBlue wins Most Consistent! Her photos are consistently well composed. She is one of our two overall winners even though she only won one challenge because her scores are consistently high. All your photos look like they came from a doll wall calendar. My favorite photo from CornflowerBlue was blue:

6 davidd violet by TrueFan, on Flickr

davidd is our Most Original contestant! davidd’s photos have a nice spontaneity about them, using unexpected props and poses. My favorite photo from davidd was violet; who else would have thought of using an ultraviolet light?

And the winners are.... Dal_purple

7 alliecat plus by TrueFan, on Flickr

Alliecat wins Most Outdoorsy. I love how her photos often take advantage of the great outdoors. My favorite photo from Alliecat is the plus photo – it looks like a “real” nature photo! (The red photo was a close second.)

Congratulations and thank you to everyone!

Congrats, CornflowerBlue and Alliecat! Your photos are always so awesome on so many levels, and are what I aspire to (and never come close to achieving, lol). That is a well-deserved tie!

Thank you, TrueFan, for organizing all this! I loved your run-down of the rainbow here (and the last picture made me LOL... I hope Skirr is OK!).

You are welcome, participating in things like this really helps my mental health. And Skirr fell backwards on a carpet - she's fine.

Please excuse the crummy photo... Harper tried out the dress last weekend, and loved the way it matches her hair. I have since switched it to a Pullip (it took a bit of pulling to get it over her bust, but it's a less awkward looking length on her and looks fabulous)... meant to take a picture of that, too, but then my camera batteries conked out. But thank you again-- it is a very nice dress!

Looks like that dress is a great match for Harper's hair.  What's not to like about purple with stars!


Samantha received a couple of outfits...

And then there was this girl!!

I had never looked all that closely at Mariya Luiza before, but she is really gorgeous.  She has lovely bluuuuue eyes.

I like her better without the scarf thingie.  Her dress is enormous!  I desperately need (room for) a doll cabinet!!!

Thanks for the photos! The J-Doll has a better home with you.

I have several dresses by the person who made the brown dress. They are big on Dal but also a cozy fall look! I hope Samantha can get some use out of it, or maybe one of your Pullips.
