deviousBeauty mix-n-match-Contest 2011!


!dM deviousMind
Mix-n-Match Contest 2011
deviousBeauty meets the grid!

Mardi Gras, Faschingszeit and Carnaval do Brasil along with the many other celebrations on the globe is just around the corner! And it’s probably no secret anymore – I TOTALLY love messing around with costumes to get to the perfect mix of sequins, feathers, satin and diamonds. The more mix-n-matching, the better. And as curiousity gets the better of me, I’d like to see what you deviousBeauties out there will settle for this carnival season 2011!

In case you didn’t know yet – viewer 2.0 or phoenix latest update include the ability, to attach multiple prims to ONE attachment point. It’s FUN AS HELL as you can see in the flyer :-D

Create your unique deviousBeauty style, take a picture, and with creativity you’ll not only have one of the most amazing carneval outfits this year, but also win one of the following prizes:

First Prize:
• 1000L paid out to you directly
• 2500L gift card for (*chanimations and deviousBeauty

Second Prize:
• 1000L paid out to you directly
• 2000L gift card for (*chanimations and deviousBeauty

Third Prize:
• 1000L paid out to you directly
• 1500L gift card for (*chanimations and deviousBeauty


Please follow these guidelines for your submission:

1. Mix our clothing pieces and accessory creations with whatever you think it can be mixed with! However, I need to be able to recognize my creations in the final outfit easily – don’t make me try and find them :-D

2. Please list the items you have used in your costume creation (both ours and those of other creators of course)!

3. The picture MUST be taken in front of a simple colored wall (like the contest flyer!). It’s not so much about the stunning backgrounds this time, it’s about YOU and your creativity with the mix and match. Post-production with any graphic program is allowed and encouraged for beauty retouches, but not required. Good old ‘plain SL snapshots’ work equally fine! (windlight and shadow-viewers make those pretty amazing by now too!)

You are the creator of the artwork! With submitting your pictures to the contest, you are allowing deviousMind to use it in connection to our creations (for example pictures in the buildings, to post on our blog, or future use connected to deviousMind).


5. No specific image formate or proportionas are required just don’t make it tiny :-D meaning, have at least one of the sides (height or width) be 1000+ pixel.

6. You may submit ONE costume mix and match – show it in however many pictures you feel are appropriate! (Stay under 5 please *laughs*).

7. Submit your picture to our flickr pool at – if it is needing ‘restricted’ flagging according to flickr ToS, please follow the link on the group page to our v18+ image pool. Your work must be tagged with “deviousMind mix-n-match-Contest 2011? (we will search by tags to see all submissions since there is other images in our pools as well). If the picture doesn’t show up in search it will likely not be seen :-(

If you don’t have a flickr account, leave a comment with a link to your blog post, photosharing site, or whereever else your image can be seen in the comments to this blog post!

Your comment MUST include ‘Submission for pictureContest by [YOUR AVATAR NAME]‘ to be able to contact you and as well to make it easier recognizeable as “not another spam link” :-D

8. Deadline for entries will be Thursday, March 10 2011 at noon Second Life time (12pm SLT). Submissions after this time will not be valid anymore. The deadline is 2 days after this year’s Mardi Gras so hopefully you will have enough time to be creative :-)

Have fun, and we’re looking forward to see your entries!
