Swimsuit Special Custom Contest
Summer's just about here, so it's time for your toys to put away their machine guns and light sabers, jump into a swimsuit, and head out to the beach or pool for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. The goal of this contest is simple: Make a custom of any character dressed up in some type of swimwear (bikinis, one-pieces, trunks/shorts, speedos, thongs, diving gear/wetsuits, etc.)

- There are no character limitations (you can even make an original one if you like.) No matter how ridiculous the results are, as long as you put them into a swimsuit, you can make a custom of whatever you want. Depending on whom you choose as your subject matter, your custom could be sexy, hilarious, or just plain disturbing!

- No skinny-dipping!!! Even if a character doesn't normally wear clothing, you must dress them up in a swimsuit for this challenge. For example, you'd have to put a pair of shorts or something on Marvel Comics' Silver Surfer to make him a legal entry.

- There aren't any size or scale restrictions and you may use whatever base bodies, parts, materials, tools, and techniques you like to turn your favorite characters into scantily-clad beach bums.

Say, what if I posted an accessory for someone/something at the beach? Would that be a legal enty?

Sorry, no, you have to make someone or something dressed up in a swimsuit, not a beach accessory. You're welcome to include beach accessories with any figure you make, but an accessory, by itself, wouldn't really fit the bill here.

Hey, I'm new here. What are bragging rights? Is it just being able to say that you won a contest???

That's right, "bragging rights" just means that you can say you won. The trophy also becomes a part of your Figure Realm customizer profile, and trophies also get you points on the contest leaderboard I maintain in the forums.

While this contest doesn't have an actual physical prize, the Power of Grayskull one does, if you'd like to shoot for that.

I understand that, but if somebody posts here, in response to your question, that yes, they're making Jean Grey in a bikini, they would have just compromised the anonymity of their entry.

Is anyone going to do a hot girl (like jean grey) in a bikini custom?

Contest submissions are supposed to be anonymous, so participants shouldn't talk about what they're planning on making.

There aren't any physical prizes, but, in addition to bragging rights, the top three finishers get virtual Bronze, Silver, and Gold trophies which become part of your customizer profile statistics.

Ok, I gotta participate in this one, sounds fun. I have no questions, just wanted to say great idea! I also love that She-Hulk picture, I've had it as my screensaver before.

Yeah, that image is a favorite of mine too--best She-Hulk artwork ever in my opinion.

Are ordinary water-based characters who wear swim trunks acceptable (Namor, for example), or is this like the "Subterranean Custom Contest," where it has to be a regular surface dweller actively changed into swimwear? Also, as the goal of this contest seems to be comedy, should I assume this isn't about characters wearing specialized equipment for water missions, like Submarine Iron Man, or Aqua-Battle Batman or something like that, you're just looking for actual swimwear, yes?

Characters that already wear swimwear as a costume, like Namor, are okay.

The goal of this contest isn't necessarily comedy, although you can certainly choose to take that approach. Whether your entry is serious or not is up to the individual participant.

The idea here is casual swimwear, the kind of stuff you'd normally see people wearing at the beach or pool, not high-tech deep diving stuff. Wetsuits and scuba gear would be all right, because people do use those for recreational water activities, but anything more heavy duty than that would probably be straying too far from the contest's theme. Remember that the characters are supposed to be enjoying some R&R, not going off to save the world.
