Battle of the Heroines

Battle of the Heroines

Welcome to the Battle of the Heroines!
***Auditions are closed. But there is still room in the group. Send me a message if you're interested.***
 
HOW THIS GROUP WORKS:
This is a battle group, which means that you have to be listed below as a participant of the current 'season' to enter contests and win. Each season lasts for about 10 rounds of contests and each contest lasts for 2 weeks. For every contest, you will create a set (based on a set of guidelines) for your heroine. If you are not listed as a participant for this season and you enter in contests, I will disqualify the set.
**If you post sets to this group that are unrelated to heroines, I will delete the sets. Three strikes and you will be removed from the group.**
 
If you have any questions about this group, just send me a message @asktheravens.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

☽ A World of My Own ☾

Welcome Polyvorians!
 
This group is for those who love to create sets that tell stories, center around fantastical ideas, express an artistic side and/or anything that showcases your imaginative creativity.
 
I see so many sets that look like magazine cutouts or fashion ads and I'd like this group to be less about mainstream trends and commercialism and more about imaginative, creative artistic expression.
