Journal Entry: Sun Mar 30, 2014, 8:13 PM


--CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED


if you are super close to finishing your entry, please note me and we can work it out ♥

I hope to have the results up within the next week! a bigbig thank you to everyone who entered, i loved every single entry and will do my best to decide appropriate winners ^7^

--HELLO! ♥


thank you for taking a look at my contest! i have really been wanting to create a contest for my OC Spirit, who has somewhat recently been my main original character. feel free to ask any questions you have, but please read through the journal first! your questions might be answered here :> i hope that you'll be interested in entering!


.: DUE DATE - THRUS. JULY 31 , 2014 :.


i do not plan on extending the date so make sure you make it in before then!


--what is this contest about?



my OC Spirit!!

• Spirit is FEMALE. her full name is Spirit Thyme
she is often mistaken as a boy, but i assure you, she is a girl! ♥

• her hair is two colors. a gold-brown and blonde. her gold-brown hair is occasionally seen in braids.
if you would like, feel free to have some of her gold-brown hair in braids and some of it not!

• she has two different outfits to choose from, one slightly more complex than the other
outfit oneoutfit two
{boots from outfit two have since then been colored differently}

• personality: spirit is a curious girl who knows her limits to her curiosity. she doesn't know much about herself and her abilities and always searches for the truth. always appears to be happy and almost all-knowing even when she is not. she is not always comfortable when first meeting someone, but warms up to them after a while. she is very creative, imaginative and free.

• she has two distinct features on her face. she has a tattoo on the left side of her face, a key on her cheek and a keyhole above her eye. her eyes have cogs in them, proof that she is a time keeper.

• please ask if you have any questions about spirit or her design!
