Founder's Gallery
Lolita Doll Christmas 5 by MelianMarionette
The group is going to be closed for quite some time, maybe a year. I am going to take that time to purge a lot of old art out of the galleries, or even delete entire galleries and start all over with the group. After that, I will open the galleries back up again, but have a stringent approval process for incoming submissions. I am going to totally change it so that only high quality art, that meets the standards of the gallery curator (that's me, Melian Marionette) will get in. I know that's a radical change from how the group has been handled in the past, but hey, there are lots of groups and anyone can make one for themselves so... Anyways. I am just ready to do something different with this group is all. I'm not going to spend any time arguing with peoples about it either. Even though I am changing the group, I do want to thank everyone who contributed art to the group and kept it going for these past eight years. Good luck out there on Deviantart and keep creating!
We are going to close the group to further submissions and it's going to go inactive for a while. Groups are a bitch. Either you have to police incoming content constantly, or you have to go back and clean up crappy or inappropriate art from the submissions folder. It's time to take a step back away from Ribbons-and-Braids again. No, I am not going to totally close the group, as in have it deleted from DA, neither am I going to allow anyone else to run it. I might open it up again some day but, I don't know.

This group is a celebration of the beauty of art, hair styles and clothes fashion exhibiting ribbons, braids or bows. This would include hair braids (pigtails or pony tails too), or centuries old clothes fashions. Images can be of men or women, or even creatures and animals or pretty much anything with a braid or ribbon.

Mythbusters - Kari by zakarrandaSUBMISSION GUIDLELINES AND RULES:

All art will initially be automatically accepted into the Submit Here folder. The group founder (that is I, MelianMarionette) will then move the deviation to an appropriate gallery folder. I will select what I believe to be the best for the Featured folder. If I feel a deviation does not meet the group theme or submission rules, I will simply remove it. Don't worry, there are lots of other groups and someone will accept your art with open arms. :-)



1: Be Nice

2: Deviation submissions should clearly have braids (or pigtails, or pony tails), ribbons, bows, or centuries old fashion as a major feature or theme. This can include art of any type, hair styles, clothing.

3. Deviations not meeting the approval of the group founder and "art museum curator" (that is I, MelianMarionette) will be removed from the Submit Here folder without comment.

4. No nudity, sexually explicit, overly controversial, or distasteful art will be accepted. This is not a porn site. Mildly erotic art will be accepted. I, MelianMarionette, prude that I am, will determine what is more than mildly erotic.

5. The group founder retains the right to modify group rules at a whim. Whine and complain, it will do you no good. Mwah hah hah hah!

6. If you are frustrated with my brutal totalitarian rule of Ribbons-and-Braids, you are free to protest by leaving the group! Otherwise, stay, relax and just have fun!

7. NEW RULE - Users who continually insist on posting art to the submissions folder that does not meet the group guidelines or group theme may find themselves blocked from the group without comment. I don't have the ambition to deal with you and I don't want random, unrelated stuff in the group's gallery. If you can't read and comply with the group guidelines, then you need to go find another group. I will not negotiate with those who have been blocked.

Adult Women Don't Wear Pigtails Anymore?"Adult women don't wear pigtails, only little girls do that!"
I beg to differ...(a big thanks to the lovely ladies featured here).  I will also throw in women with bows and ribbons in their hair as well.  Also, check out the links below and the videos at the end of the journal and the comments.  If any of you have family friendly pictures of adult women in pigtails, you are free to share them in the comments below!
