Sanctuary

Sanctuary

A safe place for anyone who deals with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, & other mental health issues, including self-harm & suicidal thoughts.
 
Art & fashion sets preferred but all sets are welcome.
 
This is an invitation only group; every member will be respectful & supportive of one another. We are not alone in our struggles, we will be ambassadors of love & courage, we will lean on each other, and do the best we can each day. Some days will be harder than others; we will cry with those who cry. Some days will be wonderful; we will laugh with those who laugh.

This is a "by invitation only" group for seasoned Polyvorians who have a flair for creating artistic and aesthetically appealing fashion sets that focus on style and originality.
 
CONTEST JUDGING: Picking sets that I find to be visually appealing is not the only criteria I use. If it were, I would probably have a handful of the same people winning time and time again, as happens in many groups. Most moderators pick winning sets based on the way they make their own sets. I do not. I want everyone in my group to know they have a chance at a trophy whether they make magazine spread sets, artistic sets or simple sets with very little fluff.
 
All styles welcomed EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING: no templates, "floating" design where the clothes look like they're going to drop off the page, scattered sets, sets loaded with with so many props, pictures, magazine articles and text that you can't find the outfit, mini sets that can't be seen without a magnifying glass, or any teen type fan set (Justin Beiber, One Direction, etc). OUTFIT ONLY sets won't be deleted but are discouraged.
 
I send invitations based on specific criteria. I intend to keep the group fairly small - under 350.

FYI
I hope you win many trophies here at Fabulous-Expressions!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)
