First and foremost I wanted to say that you all made our decisions SO incredibly hard. Between myself, Mimi, Sirena, and Mariss... we were pretty much pulling out our hair making our decision.

The same thing from every one of the judges had been said. And that was: "We wish we could pull more names because there are SO MANY incredible contestants (as well as their artists backing them)."

And on an honesty level, you guys are the most incredible creative souls out there. The designs, your posing-- everything had me incredibly floored with each 'photo' that I've seen.

(And speaking out of character for a moment...) You guys are what keeps this fandom going. Your guys' enthusiasm, love of the characters (that goes for the established characters as well as your own original characters), and just overall tenacity. I've seen the good and bad of what this fandom can do to people-- and I know that you guys are the among the best. Everyone i've interacted with here has been incredibly accepting and insanely nice-- not just to myself, but I've seen the help and love being spread to others as well. And I can't thank you all enough for spreading that joy around. :heart:

And now... for the contestants that will be moving on for the main competition...

The top photos from the challenege will be on display in the "Featured" folder.

The first challenge will be issued on February 1st. And the same will be said for the fan challenge as well. :)

I know some of the judges haven't been able to reach everyone as of yet. We really weren't expecting the number of people who auditioned hence why it's taking a bit longer than the norm. (Trying to balance real lives and things here..) But never fear! By the first, everyone will have been visited. :dance:

Thank you all so much for your incredibly beautiful submissions. :heart:

I'm disappointed Marionnette didn't make it in. I know I had my personal eye on her. ♥

Oooh yus! The fun isn't over just because 12 were announced. OOOh no. I don't play that game. :laughing: This is supposed to be fun for all. All who want to allow for it, anyway...

*hugs* Marionnette was such a cutie in her audition picture and we just can not even begin to re-iterate enough times how amazingly difficult it was to pick the top 12 ;;

And yes there is always the comeback call and you totally should participate in the fan challenge because we would absolutely love to see more of Marionnette ;3;

Unfortunately it is too late to enter the main contest.. The Audion Deadline for the main contest was the 26th of January.

However.. you're still able to submit to the fan challenge from here on. :D

And if you'd like to submit your late audition to the group, that would totally be just fine. :heart: However, since the top 12 have already been picked we cannot accept her in.
