Tales of the West II Custom Contest
Grab your six shooters and put on your best 10 gallon hat, it's time to saddle up and ride! The goal of this contest is to create a custom of a 'Western' character. This can be an existing character or person, making your own character or you can go the 'Elseworlds' route and give a normal character the Western treatment.

-Everyone from Yosemite Sam to Doc Holiday is fair game, the whole of the West is open for this contest. Westerns are more than just cowboys and Indians, also keep in mind there are law men, barmaids, poker players, preachers, undertakers, bounty hunters, gunslingers, bartenders, miners and railroad conductors. Listed below are some resources to get your juices flowing.

Film & TV

-Genre crossovers are allowed as long as a Western theme is clearly evident. Bravestar, Westworld or Firefly would be good examples of Western crossovers.

-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done.
Please remember to follow the Contest Rules and to Vote Fairly.

Can I do the Doctor in the episode "A town called Mercy" or the doctor with his cowboy hat at Lake Silencio?

You can do a Western version of any character, including the Doctor. Try not to give away who you're going to do though, the voting is supposed to be anonymous.

On a side note, I love that episode.

No you can't. All contest entries must be new, no old stuff from past contests.

Wow, this is a timely contest. I happen to be developing characters for a pseudo-western style fan fic. Are we allowed multiple entries, or perhaps posses/gangs? Gotta go back and read the rules......

New contest? Are we no longer voting on these? I didn't see a new vote in the contest voting thread . . . are we done with that then?

It was a time issue. I didn't think there was enough time to get a proper poll done so I went with the idea that came in 2nd place during the last poll.

Ah, fair enough then. I was just worried you'd started a new voting thread and I missed it. Good enough, I think I can come up with an entry for this one.
