Summertime Sirens - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Let us be honest for a moment, sometimes the rules on these contests can get a little crazy. Don't do this, can't do that, get your finger out of there, yadda yadda. So for this contest we are going to keep it simple. The only requirement is entries must be female...or at least look like a female. Femme fatales, super heroines, school girls, old crones, sultry spies, hot chicks....anything that floats your boat, the choice is yours.
The objective of this contest is to create a custom of a female character. Characters can come from any media. Comics, video games, cartoons, movies, books, etc. are all acceptable.
-Poison from Final Fight/ Street Fighter is an acceptable entry.
-A.I. characters commonly thought of as female are allowed. For instance Danger or Jocasta.
-Just for funsies, men in drag will be allowed.
-Dioramas are allowed for this contest.
-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..
What are the rules of the contest?
It's hard to choose just one custom to vote on when there are tons of great entries, so Figure Realm has a unique voting system where you can vote on ALL the customs! When you click on an entry to view, there's a bar with buttons on it that lets you give the custom anywhere from 1 to 5 Stars. 1 Star means you think they could have done a better job on the custom while 5 Stars means you think they did a perfect job. The votes for each entry are added up when voting is closed and averaged-out to determine the winners. Also, don't abuse the system. Don't give your own custom 5 Stars and then give everyone else 1 Star to boost your rating. Remember, the votes are monitored.
Some points you might consider when casting your vote: Is the figure well-made? Is the paint smooth or crusty? Are there noticeable fingerprints on the sculpted parts? Is it an original custom? Is it accurate to the source-material (comics, photos, description in a book)? Are the pictures clear enough to see the details? Did the creator take the time to include a back-story or recipe? Is the custom so unbelievably awesome that you'd trade your girlfriend for it?
Craftsmanship and creativity are major factors to consider, but ultimately your vote should depend on how much you like the custom, and how well you feel it fits the contest theme.
