Okay! The day is finally here!
Well tomorrow it will be....
but my Contest! Which I'm dubbing "Kirei's Kontest"
Lame sounding I know but oh well! Works better then the other names!
But I want this contest to be something that anyone can do! And since you all vote to have the prizes split visual art and written art that is what it'll be.
First a little bit about-
Kirei Jagerjaques (per-accident)
Oi, Ya think I'm weak because I'm a woman dun 'cha? Well how about ya come over here so I can shove me sandal right up yer ass!"
She's a firey woman that has a lot of pride in her self and her zanpuktou and what it takes to use it.
She may seem open to a person but she never reveals anything that can be construed as a weakness or can be used against her. She is very keen when it comes to battle always taking in the little moves that a enemy makes to determine her next move.
Generally she's very temperamental not taking anything lightly when it comes to actions or words said against her or those she cares for.
She doesn't listen to orders well so she's pretty rebellious but once you've earned her respect she'll be nothing but loyal. And finally she'll distance a good portion of herself so she can feel independent.
Option one of this contest is for you bad-ass writers and artists that love writing kick ass fights
your mission whether you wish to take it is to draw or write about one of Kirei's great battles (she has a wide open past after she became a vizard and well before she lost a good chunk of her memory in the accident)
Your goal will be to portray her well and make it a good fight!
Can have her use her hand to hand combat style Taekwondo she'll use this first in every battle and isn't one to use her sword because of what it does to her too. So in any battle she'll start out with a flurry of kicks and punches.
If she's facing an enemy she can't take down by hand that's when she'll use her shikai her command phrase is "Now, Bloom Bara!"
Here is a motion map for how she summons her jagged blade sta.sh/0re6ldqbh72
Finally since I don't have her Bankai worked out draw her when then whispers from her hollow drive her crazy enough that she calls out her mask!
Hollow Kirei is always whispering in the back of Kirei's mind but when that mask in on all the gloves are off. That enemy just came in contact with a legally insane woman with a sick black widow for a hollow.
So have fun and go insane for this one guys!
(forms of Kirei you can use~)
Option two is for those of you amazing writers and Artists that have a softer side or well like the spice of romance more then the spice of battle.
Your assignment if you wish to have it. Is to protray Ichigo and Kirei's relationship.
The only thing I ask is don't draw them married with Takehiko I'm still working on him.
But anyway! Kirei is a little different after her accident. and when's she's with Ichigo
"It's just I feel different around ya...ya make me feel safe like I always have a place to go."
She's still a firey woman that has a lot of pride in her self but doesn't know much about her zanpuktou anymore so she's more prideful of her relation to Grimmjow after she learns of his status.
She's more open to others but she still doesn't really like answering questions of that directed toward her such as question about her and Ichigo's relationship.
Generally she's still temperamental and doesn't take much lightly but she loosens up when she's with Ichigo becoming more playful but if someone pokes fun at her she may get a little annoyed or well she could go off and pout
She still has a natural aversion to authority but it's mostly her brother's that's why she ending up hanging with Ichigo so much...until she falls for him.
She's leans more on Ichigo now because she feels safe because of how far he goes to protecting those he cares for. So she let's all of herself out around him but limits it when others around. And the open Kirei is calmer and can get flustered when she gets caught staring at what she calls her "Glorious strawberry" So her want independence lightens dramatically after she lose her memories of why she needed to be that way.
"At first, I thought "I want to protect Mom." The ones to protect increased with the birth of my sisters. I kept going to a dojo for the sake of protecting them. I got a bit stronger. The ones I thought I wanted to protect became more and more."

Quirks about their relationship~
-Kirei has a good amount of confidence but when it comes to seducing Ichigo she takes one look into his brown eyes and her knees go weak as she sputters.
-With a body like Kirei's boys and some girls are drooling over her which can bring out a more possessive side to Ichigo.
-Kirei is 5'8" while Ichigo is 5'11" so the height difference isn't to extreme visually.
-Ichigo well is Ichigo and he's always a bit serious when it comes to things so Kirei's always trying to make them let loose whether it's in a playful way or in other more interesting ways...that is if she listens to the strange voice in the back of her head telling her want she should do next.
-Kirei can be a little to open when it comes to her body and even more so around Ichigo which can get Ichigo a little flustered.
-Ichigo is very protective when it comes to fights he does anything so that Kirei won't have to use her zanpuktou hating anything that hurts her.
-Sometime Kirei has a bit of trouble paying attention and can fall into a stupor while he mid races into wild fantasies that range for cute to sexual and they always involve her and Ichigo
-Kirei loves one fruit and has since she could remember which was strawberryies which can set Ichigo's cheeks a blaze when he listens to her talk about eating them in various ways~
-Finally Ichigo is always on edge when he's with Kirei our in public or at Kirei's place always wondering if he should expect a surprise attack from her older brother.
