Yule Ball Contest Open - TWO WEEKS LEFT.Yule Ball Contest Open - TWO WEEKS LEFT4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The theme for this contest is Yule Ball
Just to clarify, as it's been asked.
Your entry doesn't need to take place during the Hogwats Yule Ball that appears during the books or movies. For all we know the Ministry could host other Yule Balls, elsewhere and often and canon states there were Yule Balls held in the past.
Your entry also doesn't have to take place on the day of the Ball, there's plenty preparation to be done beforehand.
And finally, your entry needn't take place inside the Ball. If Hogwarts students can sneak out into the rose gardens in the books and into carridges in the movies then they could certainly be running amok elsewhere.
As always we're all for you coming up with scenarios of your own and encourage you to be as creative as possible with the theme and to bend it to suit your will. So long as you can link your entry to the theme, your entry should be accepted.

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures too but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sh
