Well, I figured out what pics I'm using. Hopefully they'll meet y'all's approval.

We are going to revisit the Furriners vs Muricans challenge, but with some new rules.

1. Wear whatever you want.

2. If you are living on foreign soil, you may choose to represent your birth country or your country of residence.

3. The fit does not have to be new, pick what you think has been your best fit of all time, whether it be from this week, or 10 years ago. This will a best of the best challenge, bring your A game.

4. The poll will have 2 options, Furriners or Muricans. Once the winner is decided, I will put up a new poll for 1 day consisting of the entrants from the winning team only, and that winner will be the representative of the winning team to choose the next Friday Challenge.

I will put up the new thread in the next day or so.

 

Request for clarification. Are you allowing photos from any time, or fits from anytime, but worn anew, photographed anew, etc. I dont know that it makes any difference, but if it is merely anything that has been worn before and posted before, then the contest could well be conducted by scouring the WAYWRN thread (and as such we could enter those who no longer post  - Vox, for example).

The idea is that you would have to pick your best fit from the past if you don't do something new. Stitches challenge, but I'm guessing you have to post for yourself. You can't just go grabbing stuff from Label King or Vox and post them for your side.

I was being pedantic with my Vox comment. My point is that, if it is a best of the best contest,  we could just go find the best outfits that have been posted, but then it isnt really a weekly challenge, is it? I thought the point of these contests was to get people to dress for it. I assumed that Stitch meant we could WEAR the same outfit again that had previously been posted, but not that we should use the photos of a previous outfit (which is how I interpret Danleyness' comment above: "which pics I'm using").

Fair enough....paging Stitch!
post #338 of 355
in this challenge you can pick any photo of any fit. as long as its you, i dont care. feel free to wear the same fit again if you like and take pics again, but its not needed, and on top of that, if the old pics are better, by all means use those. just bring your A game and represent your people to the best of your abilities.

also, there will be no vetting of fits allowed. you may not post 8 old fits and see what people like best. i will delete such posts. the challenge is in the choosing, so choose wisely.

yes, its not the same as every FC, but i think its good to shake things up now and again, or else things either get stale or really weird ideas get used and thats no good for the longevity of the FCs.

imho that is of course.

Im sticking with the foreigners this time

 

 

Now who would like me to wire 10 million into their account? 

post #340 of 355
Would prefer for no recycling of previous pictures. Part of the fun of the FC is seeing everyone's new fits/pictures.
post #341 of 355
I like it. It's interesting to see what pictures people will pick out as their best. I made a compilation in 2 parts on my tumblr of the fits I have posted that have gotten most positive feedback here (1, 2). I will pick one of them and re-shoot it if the picture quality is too poor.

I saw your tumblr posts and it got me thinking. Perhaps the teams should actually be Allies vs Axis nations. Yes, that sidelines you stylish Swedes. :devil:

No need to re-open old wounds. SF is about creating new wounds.

Only one pic per entry, I assume?

LOL. No hate intended; it just makes for a convenient separation. Stacking the deck, as it were.
