:iconclub-tutu: 2015 October Contest
Trick or Treat II

Trick or treat!
Smell my feet!
Give me something good to eat!

Fall has once again come around, and countries around the world are celebrating their many fall traditions. And one of the biggest and popular celebrations is Halloween. It’s the one day of the year where people allowed to let their darker sides out for fun and thrills. Halloween is the night of ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and gremlins, as well as witches, demons, black cats, and anything you can think of. It’s also a night of treats and tricks, and perhaps you have some local or regional traditions that you’d like to share.

Take the characters of Princess Tutu and have them going through the various activities of Halloween or a related holiday. It can be set in the canon town or modern versions if you like. Maybe the crew are going trick or treating. Perhaps they are going to a town festival or party. Or maybe they’re doing a haunted house or hayride.

Deadline: October 25, 2015, 11 p.m. PST (GMT -8)

I hope to have time to do something for this month's contest. But, I have an older piece that's been posted elsewhere (never on dA) that would fit as well. Would it be permissible to enter it, or (as I've assumed all along) must all entries be new, as part of the challenge to finish them within the allotted time? Just checking....

We prefer pieces that are created for the prompt, or around the time of the prompt. It's part of the whole challenge aspect of our contests. So it's a no on pre-existing art. But feel free to submit it to the main gallery.

That's what I thought, but I didn't remember seeing a rule to that effect. Thanks for clarifying that!

Yeah, it's rarely posted in the specific contests, but it's in the general contest rules in the About Us page.

Don`t you think about making Princess Tutu OC contest? Agiotage would be enormous =)
Asatira Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It has crossed my mind personally, but we tend to try to keep things in line with the overall theme of the club, which is focused on the canon characters. We've allowed a few instances for OCs, like the families contest we held a while back. Having an OC focused contest is an option, but something the admins would have to agree on. If there were demand for it, maybe.
