Let's Decide the Theme for the Next Challenge!!
« on: September 08, 2010, 11:15:46 PM »
Hey guys! It's that time again!! After a very successful challenge in July/August, we're looking to start our next one soon!! Here's how it's gonna work: You guys decide on the theme, I'll decide on how it's going to be a challenge. ;) :evil: So pick a theme, any theme!

Halloween?
With a twist of some sort.
I really like how you guys came up with using something and turning it into something else.
My 2 cents

I'm surprised no one is saying anything! I guess we got all burned out on the last competition. ;D So you want Halloween, eh? I like the idea of a twist...I will have to think on that. :evil: It would have to be something crazy, like a Caribbean Halloween. ;D We could do another revamping contest. Ooooorr, we could try something different. We could require that all entries contain something specific (like a black cat). We could force all entrants to MAKE something specific (something easy, like a notebook). Or we could make everyone use a specific material in their item, like some lace. There's a lot of possibilities!

So speak up everyone! ;D If you want a Halloween theme, we need to decide this quick, since we're almost halfway through September already! :P If you'd rather go for a different theme, or more generic one (like Autumn)....speak up! :) All ideas are welcome!!

how about as theme where we make something which is inspired by a piece of music, each person chooses the music, its a chance to tell a story too.

Yay, thanks for posting an idea! And that's a really interesting one! :)

So now we have Halloween and music, which we could even mix together. Anyone else?

'In Loving Memory' ... an opportunity to show our love for those who have passed, whether they be human or animal.

This is a good idea also, a little morbid, but good. Wondering if we can put a cheery spin on it in a respectful way.
Thoughts?

Maybe celebrating a life?  Like something to do with a gift that person would like to receive, or what the person liked to do for Halloween (if we're combining ideas)?  Or being inspired by the person's favorite song, band, or genre?

... or pet's since animals were mentioned too.

At least it isnt as morbid as my first thought LOL... but I was thinking more along the celebration of their life, not the sadness of their parting.

Could we combine celebrating someones life with a meaningful song, or even just a chorus out of a song? The song would be a starting point, something to get the creative juices going, celebrating a life is a huge concept, with so much potential, its pretty abstract too, like... how do you celebrate a whole life with a work of art or design or craft? Or you take a significant memory to inspire a design, or even a series... am I thinking to much?

I love how you guys are thinking!! ^-^ As far as a challenge about lost loved ones, I'm not sure about it. Not everyone has lost someone they truly care about, and those who have may not want to dwell on the topic. Since this is only our second challenge, I really do think we should do something a bit more lighthearted for now. I do like the idea of dedicating an item to a loved one, though, so we'll have to keep that in mind. If you guys REALLY want to do it, though, speak up! And if anyone wouldn't participate, speak up as well. Honestly, I don't think I would participate, for personal reasons.

The song idea is a lot of fun!

And we have another vote for Halloween!

Anyone else?
