A group for those of us who put ourselves as well as our fashion into our sets. Those of us who go for artistic beauty and meaning as well as cute clothes. :) Plenty of contests as well. Submit all your favorite sets.♥
Application Process: Alright so this isn't a battle group or anything but since I've recently been getting SO many applications I think that it is necessary to explain how I choose who is accepted and who is rejected.
First of all, I thank you all so much for all the applications. When I look through applications I try to be pretty leniant. I accept everyone who I think has at the very least:
~decent set designs ~great style ~seems to know how to use the set maker
That means no sloppy sets thrown together haphazardly. Also, the clothes that you choose should actually look good together, like you could imagine someone, maybe not me or you, but someone, wearing them in real life and pulling it off. Lastly, that you don't choose random crops that look awkward and unnatural.
Here's what I made My Truth lies in Fashion for. It's explained briefly but really, it's for people who spend time trying to make their sets aesthetically beautiful in every way. The clothes, the pictures, the set up, it all looks good because you care about how it turns out and you love fashion.
But as I said I am pretty lenient in applications because the fact that you want to join shows that you're willing to try. I can't say I'm perfect, my sets aren't the best sets on polyvore, and I know how hard it is, especially just starting out to figure out what to do and how to get it exactly right. So, if I feel that though your sets may not be so good that I would have invitied you myself if I had come across you on my own (see below) but I see that your set design isn't too bad, and you have great style, then I will let you in because you have the potential to be great. I also take into consideration how long you have been on the site.
Also, if I don't get back to you immediately don't think that it means you're not accepted. I may take a while to go check on the applications or sometimes I leave people in the application box because they have just recently joined and their style isn't bad but their set making just isn't up to par yet I still think you could be great, though it's too early to tell.
I would just like to take a minute to note that if you have NO SETS I will automatically reject you even if you have just joined because I feel like it just means you put no thought into applying. But I do admit, it is a little unfair since I have not seen you make any sets so please, do PM me to look at you if this is/was your case and you still would like to join.
In addition, if I do reject you, yet you do feel like your sets have changed and improved greatly since then, please PM me I am willing to re-evaluate you though I do not guarentee a change in a results.
And once you are accepted, I'd greatly appreciate it if you enter contests. This isn't some sort of command, once you are in you are probably going to remain in, I have never taken any one out, though I don't promise anything.
Contests: I do judge contests kind of meticulously. And just recently have I have began making contests by the sets you submit! I choose these from what beautiful sets catch my eye on the group's main page (I look from recent sets and work upwards), so submit your sets and maybe... ;) Also, I do try and let everyone get a chance to win. So, someone who won first place on the last contest most likely will not win first in the next contest. In addition, I do not allow more than two sets from one member to place.
Invitations: I'm the type of polyvorian that likes back on follows and set likes, and I do spend a lot of time on polyvore anyways. So if I see someone that I feel has gorgeous sets; really just beautiful design, stunning outfits...(not necessarily many likes!) and just does a great job making sets, I will invite you. (:
Sorry, it's been a while. This contest was inspired by this FANTASTIC set by fabio-yellow (http://www.polyvore.com/modern_exotic/set?id=81461456). Entered your sets featuring something gold (well, gold colored). 1 week. no limit. twelve winners.
