The Polyvore Artists Academy

The Polyvore Artists Academy

The Mystery Of Art

The Mystery Of Art

This group's goal is to make sets that focus on the mystery of art, all art has it. Some have it more so than others, but it is an integral part of art. So art only please. Thank you!
 
Thank you @ladypiraterose as you are the reason this group was able to be created! I had no ideas and you have helped me out so much to create this group.

Style This....

Style This....

It all starts with that one item. That one piece of clothing, shoes, fabric, picture, jewelry, etc....that you are compelled to style. And when you do, it's magic! I will be hosting challenges where an item caught my attention...or yours (suggestions are welcome) and you will be asked to style it. Some challenges will be clothes only, while others will be whatever you like. This group is open to everyone! I look forward to seeing how creative we can be by styling that perfect item. Let's have fun!

Express your Style!!!

Express your Style!!!

For All Girls that have special style and fashion spirit........

Outfit Oriented

Outfit Oriented

Hello and Welcome! This group and its contests will be outfit oriented. This means that the main focus of your set should be the outfit. Minimal props and backgrounds are okay, but no "editorial" sets where the outfit gets lost. Thanks for joining and let the styling begin! :0)

Retro Chic

Retro Chic

This group is designed for those who love retro styles from the 50's, 60's and 70's. It is not so much to create "costumes" but to create beautiful fashion sets that take inspiration from certain trends from these eras (i.e. an article of clothing, TV show or movie, design). You may incorporate props, backgrounds or templates that give a nod to that time period. No swearing or nudity, please. This group is open to all who appreciate chic and classy outfits. Art and interior design sets are also welcome.

I hope you win many trophies here at Gowns Galore!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)
