Round Robin Challenge: Mannequins

Hidy Ho Robins :)
This challenge is now closed. Thanks for playing! :)

It's me, Carly, and guess what... it's my turn to choose a challenge! Just like with Karen, it has been over two years since I have chosen a challenge theme, but the wait has made me very happy. Why would waiting make me happy? Well, see, we have been adding new Robins with almost every new challenge, THAT is what has made the waiting for my turn to come around so nice. Meeting new friends, seeing some amazing creativity, and having tons of fun along the way. You guys are great. :) With all the innovative topics that have been suggested for the challenges, I knew it might be difficult for me to come up with a topic that you might enjoy. When I started considering what might appeal to everyone, I came up with something simple, and pretty readily available to all of us. So, our topic for this Round Robin Challenge will be "Mannequins."

So, grab your cameras and hit the malls and trendy little shops, and show me the mannequins you find most photogenic. Show me a mannequin that is weird, or maybe one that is very common. Headless mannequins would be interesting, so would themed mannequins, such as ones depicting fictional characters. Mannequins dressed to reflect the season's apparel, like a mannequin in a beach outfit. For that matter, if you have a mannequin from any of the holidays in your files, that would work, although I would love to see you get out with the camera and find something new and current. Let your creativity flow... don't be afraid to be bold with your choice, but keep in mind the Round Robin Challenges is a open to all ages, so please try to be appropriate.

Please Robins, you need to use the following example format when you sign-up to play...

Your Name: Carly
Your Blog Name: Ellipsis
Your Blog Address: http://ellipsissuddenlycarly.blogspot.com

Robins, our RULES OF PLAY have changed recently, so please pay a visit to the **WELCOME ENTRY & RULES OF PLAY entry, and familiarize yourselves with how we play. It is very important that everyone follow the rules. It makes bringing the challenges to you a lot easier for Karen, Steven and myself. Just to remind you of the basics, here is a brief list of the rules we ask you to observe.

1. DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY EARLY
2. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR FULL INFORMATION WHEN YOU SIGN-UP TO PLAY.

The rules are for everyone Robins, so please try to remember. :) Please don't make us look up your information each time.

The date for this challenge will be Wednesday, August 8th. As always you can post your entry any time between the midnights of that day, or if you can't join us on that day, you can post any day up to one week after the challenge date. If you know you can't post the day of the challenge, just let us know when you sign-up, and we will post the date you plan to post your entry, next to your name on the Linking List. But if you can, please post your entry the day of the challenge, as that is when the participating entries usually receive the most visitors. :)

OK, that's it. That's all you need to know to play. Now make me proud, grab your cameras, find your challenge subject, "Mannequins," and GO BE PHOTOGRAPHERS! See you on Wednesday, August 8th!

-Carly

NOTE: We are still needing some submissions for the new Round Robin Challenges, coming this September. If you have an idea for an upcoming challenge, send us your ideas! We can't do it without you! See the sidebar, for a list of all the past challenges we have already played.

Hmm, I was just noticing the mannequins in a particular store a few weeks ago, so I'm looking forward to this one. I "figure" it'll be fun!

Hey Robins~Long time no see, but you are surly not forgotten! I am having trouble leving comments this morning on individual journals so I am hoping you will see them here.

What an unusual topic, Carly. You and karen did a great job on all your different presentaion of images. Carly~I liked the "hippie" lloking ones best I think--very artistic and retro.

Karen~Those brides really got to me...creepy!You had so many great shots.

Twilight zone indeed! ;-) Deb ;-)
