January 1st is Featherfall’s 4th Anniversary! To commemorate it we are planning two separate contests as anniversary events, and we hope that they will be a lot of fun for all participants. We look forward to seeing your entries. FASHION DESIGN CONTEST Similar to our 2007 Fashion Design Contest, the idea is to create an outfit - the them is “ URBAN FANTASY” and we leave it up to your interpretation! Please make either MSD or SD designs - both girl and boy outfits are equally welcome!

RULES: 1. All entries have to be the entrants original design. 2. Multiple entries are allowed, but only one entry per entrant will rank for a prize. 3. Entries should be in full colour, with explanations about each part of the outfit. 4. Accessories not included for judging, as they would be hard to reproduce 5.

Artists retain rights to display in their portfolio. Once you have submitted a design you will be emailed a copyright release form to this effect, so please note us on FB or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send you this document. If your design is ever reproduced by us ( whether you are a winner or not) you will receive a copy of your physical outfit. Outfit designs will be judged on: - Originality - Relevance to the theme - Feasibility to turn into physical clothing PRIZES! 1st place A CHOICE between : LE Dollheart Persimmon Fer ( SD) or a Featherfall $50 Gift certificate + Winner’s own outfit once it is produced. 2nd place: A CHOICE between : BJD HEAD ( TBA, depending on in-stock items) or a Featherfall $25 Gift certificate + Winner’s own outfit once it is produced. --------------- PHOTO CONTEST: To thank all the wonderful customers we have had over the past four years, we want to have a photo contest! We will only consider photos of dolls/ LE outfits that have been purchased through Featherfall, as we would like to reward our loyal customers. All dolls purchased through us are allowed. However, we would particularly LOVE to see some of Featherfall’s own dolls, Finn and Iruhi! If you have a different doll but have purchased one of our exclusive outfits ( such as the LE Rogue, Steampunk Traveler or Dollheart Fers) they are also allowed - please note that in your entry.
