Good morning!
Here are the results from my teeny tiny summer mini-contest. Thank you for those who participated.
From: (UPDATED) Long Time No Update + Mini-contest!Quick Update, August 1st, 2014 - Extending the contest to August 31st. :) I realize summer is addictive and a lot of folks are not around, I'd like to try to get more entries - thanks!
Hello! I hope everyone is doing just fine and dandy.
I have a little announcement - a brainstorm, if you will.
With summer here, in its great big blaze of glory, I got to thinking...
I saw this youtube video today: Giving the Homeless New Shoes and it made me upset. I could relate on so many levels, and it was lovely to see somebody doing something that wasn't blaming, bashing, hurting or awful to the people in the video.
There are an awful lot of homeless people. Whatever their reasons, there are too many. And there isn't a lot of awareness projected towards these people. Summer is hot, the weather is unpredictable, sometimes it's stormy - tornadoes, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, soaring temperatures. While a lot of us are comfort


1st:

2nd: To a Curbside Womanstretching her legs over
the sidewalk beneath the
overpass, ankles crossed,
feet wearing dirt like socks
but her dress feels like silk,
and her hands hold each
other like puzzle pieces
This is enough for her
This is enough
for her This is
enough for her


3rd: HomelessJason…no Johnny…Tyler? What did matter?
I would see him every day walking home from school. He’d just sit there with a sign that said “Hungry. Anything will help. God Bless.” And a single crutch lying beside him; being “injured” would get him more money, I used to think.
What a bum, I used to think, get a job.
I could get a job, why couldn’t he? It wasn’t the greatest job, but why couldn’t he just get a job at a McDonald’s or what not?
I would walk around him. I would walk on the other side of the road. He disgusted me. He was putrid, foul, and he just looked so, unsanitary. I didn’t want to be near him, I didn’t want to look.
He must be a gambling addict, I thought to myself.
Once in a while he would have the audacity to ask, no, rather he begged, people for money. A dollar? How would that help? I couldn’t even buy a can of soda with a dollar.
He was pathetic, and I didn’t want to associate mysel


Honorable mention: The Miracle by clara-01

Thank you everyone! (And sorry for the results delay)
Two very important things:

1) Halloween is coming! Send me your delicious and creepy horror/macabre DD suggestions! Or, alternatively, your creative and adorable cosplay ones!
I love Halloween, myself. I can't wait until it's the 31st. Mmhmm!

1 1/2) What are you all going to be for Halloween, and will there be pictures? I'd LOVE to see!

2) I hosted a summer mini-contest and I am a month late with the results. In a quick summary, there was a medical emergency in the form of a stroke. Things have died down now - and I am honoring my feature and points rewards. One thing though...I seem to only have saved in my favorites and notes 3 entries...one from clara-01, one from BunnySquisher and one from AyeAye12. I recall more, I do! So here's my absolute 100% last call out for another link to your entry! The results, be it from those three or more if there are, will be posted on Sunday!

PS: I love you all.   
Hello, everybody. I certainly hope your summer was amazing and that your fall will be just as good. I am hoping to see a lot of spooktacular projects come out of the community this year, don't hesitate to send me awesome horror/macabre daily deviation suggestions!

As you know, I hosted a little mini-contest over the summer promoting homelessness awareness. My internet has been DUMB, but it's finally stable, and I will have the results of that, plus a feature of all the entries, by the weekend.

That's all for now!

Hi there everyone! So it seems that my scheduled round up's aren't going off as planned, so I will remedy that as soon as possible. My internet provider is also being a jerk, so I will post the results from my summer mini-contest as soon as it is stable.

I hope everybody had an EXCELLENT summer, and just remember, even if it is over it's so almost Halloween!

Gallery Descriptions

Horror/Macabre Photography is a genre in which the photographer or model(s) and makeup artists attempt to portray a eerie, creepy, disgusting or disturbing scene. The entire idea of the genre is to shock and scare, and generally create a feeling of unease. Horror/Macabre photography is an acquired taste, as some of the images captured are ideologically sensitive, brutal, and can be hard on the stomach or the eyes. To qualify for the horror/macabre photography gallery the same rules apply as to all photography submissions, which includes minimal editing and manipulation, which in turn brings about spectacular creativity when making props and makeup effects. This genre and galley is 18+, as a general rule, as it can feature nudity as well as gruesome imagery. It is not uncommon for there to be the complete lack of blood, religious icons, and other disgusting matter in horror/macabre photography - some of the most poignant images enjoy the use of shadows, sheets and forests are their back drop. Horror/Macabre photography also revolves around the use of ghosts, ghouls, movie monsters, shadows, and other various 'creep factors'. As such, it can appeal to a wide variety of viewers, but discretion is advised. For more chilling eye candy, please visit the Horror/Macabre photography gallery -> Right Here!

Gallery Descriptions

Cosplay Photography is a genre in which people showcase their costume making skills, photography and/or modelling skills, and their ability to embody a character from television, books, comics, movies, popular culture,  or original designs. The complexity of the gallery is immediately noticed by the quality of the costumes portrayed, and the cosplayers themselves take the time to make them as accurate as possible. Also featured is con photography, and while generally speaking it not the cosplayer posting them, they are still an interesting look in to the culture. The Artisan Crafts > Costumery gallery also features a wide variety of examples, and often a more detailed look at the costumes created. To see more, please visit the People and Portraits > Cosplay gallery here on deviantART! Costumes Galore!


I Was Waiting for You by daguerreoty-pe

Bioshock - II by DimHorizonStudio


I came to deviantART so soon after it opened its doors, and went through a ton of user names until I finally settled down with this one. After choosing it, I found that creating my gallery under it and meeting new people helped me feel like this could be a great internet home.

Aoede by pullingcandy

I originally came to be a lurker. I didn't upload, I didn't comment, but I dropped more favorites in to my folders each day. Then I started leaving little words of encouragement and started showing how much I enjoyed other people and their work. Eventually, I started leaving comments on things I felt I had a little understanding of and offering the best constructive critique I could.

Tempus Vincit Omnia by pullingcandy

I started to submit regularly in 2008. I was hesitant but I felt that I wanted to share my work, and I was so surprised by the comments that were left on my own projects. Some reminded me of myself, little words of encouragement and hugs. Some were awesome critique that I tried really hard to take in to consideration. I feel that submitting really helped me grow as an artist, I wouldn't have got as far as I have without all those words typed.

Alternate Ending by pullingcandy
I didn't know much about photography, or models, or my camera, so I practiced on my pets. I thought perhaps I would always use them, but after a while, I felt I had to branch out. I am really thankful for taking so many, though, because a pets life often ends far too soon, but I needed to try new things, so...

The Genesis of Butterflies by pullingcandy

So I stared taking landscape photographs. But that wasn't enough....

Lethean by pullingcandy

So I started to dabble in makeup and started to use myself as a model. When my confidence level in makeup application got to a nice level, I started to take darker, bloodier shots. I've always been a big fan of horror, movies and literature, anything scary. And when I started to submit those things, I actually got an awful lot more encouragement then I expected, especially considering the nature of the images.

All Mine by pullingcandy

After a bit of submitting those things, I felt that the community was good enough to start submitting literature. Before groups, there were clubs, and I found so many of those that were awesome and friendly. I started to try to help, volunteering at several and getting to know some super amazing people who have impacted me, and without dA I never would have met any of them!



And I also have had the extreme pleasure of volunteering for the cosplay and the horror/macabre photography gallery! I think that it has enriched me in a way that would NEVER have been possible, and I am so thankful for all the wonderful opportunities it has given me - but most importantly, I got to meet even MORE people I never would have, and they are all fantastic. My site experiences have been amazingly fulfilling.

Ante Mortem by pullingcandy

Though I haven't had as much time as I would have liked to have had to spend here over the last year, I find that deviantART is an important part of my day. It's been around for so long that it has become a pleasant ritual with my morning coffee.

I Heart Books by pullingcandy

Happy birthday, deviantART!
Quick Update, August 1st, 2014 - Extending the contest to August 31st. :) I realize summer is addictive and a lot of folks are not around, I'd like to try to get more entries - thanks!

Hello! I hope everyone is doing just fine and dandy.
I have a little announcement - a brainstorm, if you will.

With summer here, in its great big blaze of glory, I got to thinking...

I saw this youtube video today: Giving the Homeless New Shoes and it made me upset. I could relate on so many levels, and it was lovely to see somebody doing something that wasn't blaming, bashing, hurting or awful to the people in the video.

There are an awful lot of homeless people. Whatever their reasons, there are too many. And there isn't a lot of awareness projected towards these people. Summer is hot, the weather is unpredictable, sometimes it's stormy - tornadoes, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, soaring temperatures. While a lot of us are comfortable on those days, safe in our homes, a lot of us aren't.

I'd like to propose a mini-contest, open to all mediums. A story. A photograph. A painting. Something highlighting homelessness, a different side to it perhaps, or just focusing on the bleakness of the situation people suffer daily.

I was homeless for a very long time. Right up until I became pregnant with my first child, I struggled and here I am today, I managed to get out of that situation, I have clothes that fit and some extra pocket change. A computer and a home. But a lot of the time, people stay homeless until the day they pass away.

So write me a story. Take a picture for me. Show me a bright side of these people, or show me how low down they are, help me spread some words and images that help shed some light on the world that these people live in. The rules are simple:

Must be created on or after June 26th, 2014.
Must center around a homeless person or situation, past, present or future.
Can be any medium, literature, photography or digital and all those in between.
Send me the entry in note form.
Closing date: August 31st, 2014.

All entries will get a feature.
First: 200 points
Second: 100 points
Third: 50 points.

If you're interested in donating towards this cause, let me know! Feel free to share :)
