What's Your Sign?

Postby Trinity Starling » 29 Oct 2018, 15:54

The Western Zodiac signs are constellations that can be seen every month. People born of a certain month and day are said to have traits under that sign. This contest will have two parts. For the first part, find which sign you are and dress your lady to represent it. Then, write a short paragraph describing how your lady embodies your sign and what your sign means to you. You have until 11/3 to enter, after which the second part of the contest will begin. Some participants will be eliminated and the ones left (probably 5-7, depending on the turnout) will go on to the second part.

Image

There will be three finalists at the conclusion of this contest -- all participants will be judged on their creativity, coordination of the outfit with their sign, and eloquence of their paragraph
FIRST PLACE: 50 emeralds and $50,000
SECOND PLACE: 20 emeralds and $20,000
SECOND PLACE: 10 emeralds and $10,000

RULES: Participants must dress according to the set of Zodiac signs corresponding to the parts of the contest -- in this case, the Western Zodiac signs. They must have all of the mentioned parts of their entry (paragraph + outfit), and entries must be submitted within the given time-frame, or they will not be considered as finalists. Please be sure to actually mention your sign in your paragraph. When the second part of this contest begins, only the finalists will be able to enter, and no more new entries will be considered.

TIP: Try to capture the nuances of your sign within your outfit and be sure to write about these in your paragraph. If you really want to impress me(hint, hint, *wink, wink*), look beyond the cliché traits that websites claim embody your sign, as they can change based on what website you visit. Compose your outfit consciously and keep in mind that you may edit your entry up until the deadline. I have included a sample entry (third one down) to help you with this task.


Have fun and be creative!

I'm born 22nd March, so of course, I dressed as the Aries sign.

I used brignt colors for my outfit, trying to show all the energy I have (I'm so full of energy that even the hair won't stay still right after Icombed it :D). But I also used black to show the impulsive and independent side of my sign.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and a sign of fire. I don't know how to express being the first (besides being amongst the first ones to post at this contest :D) but for the fire, I took a torch in my hand that I carry everywhere (even my hair turned pink because of its excesive heat).

For the rest of my outfit, I choosed a golden tunic that represents my warrior side and, because I'm a girl, I dressed in a long black skirt, a transparent one, that points my femininity.

I am a Pisces, a water sign. As the final sign Pisces is said to have experienced the energy of every other sign before it.
Usually Pisces are symbolised by 2 fishes swiming in circle, up and down, showing their duality, trait i ment to express by using the mask and The gloves stand for the fish scales.
It is said we alternate between reality and non-reality, that we might possess psichic abilities (i do tend to trust my guts and it served me well so far...), shy but easy-going in the same time and caring.

HELLO beautiful people! I'm really super bored so I'm gonna do my own entry. I know this is technically my contest, so... feel free to take this as a sample. Remember that you can edit your entries up to the due date for the first part of the contest (11/3). Here goes nothing...

Image

My Zodiac sign is PISCES -- the fishes. Pisces is a water sign, which is symbolized by the blue tinges in my dress. We are said to be mysterious, intuitive, and romantic at best, but clingy and self-destructive at worst. The mysteriousness is embodied by the darkened aspect of my dress and how it fades into blue. Intuitiveness is represented by my lantern -- a symbol for the light of knowledge that I seek. The romantic nature of Pisces is embodied by the flow of my dress and how it drapes at my feet, as well as how you can see through it, creating a sort of silhouette. The same silhouette also embodies one of the negative traits of my sign -- a clingy nature.

For me, being a Pisces means having empathy -- the trait of being able to relate to others on a deep level of interpersonal connection. It means that I can form truly human relationships with others as equals and see beyond a person's use to me as an object for me to achieve my goals. It means that I can see past a person's worth as an object and into their worth as my friend or even family.

Again, this entry is just a sample of the level of analysis that will thoroughly impress me in this contest. I know it's a bit tedious, but it's a good way for me to see how well you know your sign, and for you to show off your creativity. You don't need to analyze everything as thoroughly as I did, but do try to capture the nuanced interpretations of your sign in your entry. Put everything your literature classes have taught you to good use! This entry will not be counted as official and will not be taken into account for the remainder of the contest. I hope it has given you some insights into your own entry.

It's Aries season, binches! It's so Aries that aries' horoscope is always listed first!

"Hello! Is it your Aries you're looking for? 'Cause I'm right here..." <-famous song, Lionel Richie, if you don't know it, google it

Aries are never born. They skip gaily from their mothers' wombs. This may even involve roller blades. The Aries makes life decisions as a toddler. Being infallible, God is probably an Aries.

Aries are courageous and enjoy taking risks. The greater the risk, the quicker an Aries would take it. Aries are terrible losers and will desperately fight to the end. For an Aries, it’s ‘do or die’. It is difficult to accurately describe an Aries without using the words ‘arrogant’ and ‘intolerant’. That is, unless you use words such as ‘presumptuous’, ‘conceited’, ‘bigoted’, ‘prejudiced’, or ‘prick’. 92% of people surveyed would rather have a tooth extracted by a gorilla than share a bus seat with an Aries. The other 8% were Aries themselves.

It's not my fault I'm just a blunt person. In fact, the great thing about me, Aries, is that my friends can always rely on me to tell it like it is.

Image


The dumbest thing you can possibly do is piss off an Aries woman, she will open the gates of Hell and escort your ass right on in, and she will do it with a smile on her face!

Image


Is that a tornado coming towards you?! No! Is me!
Is that a Michael Bay directed movie? Neaah! Wrong again! Is still me!! I know exactly how to get under your skin, and will do it on purpose!


Image


My rams' horns are in everyone else's asses.

Image


Well, this was hard to do... As you probably noticed this is me, overzealous, all over the place, getting to the finish first with some small hiccups, not making any sense, getting distracted by butterflies and tornadoes! "Simply the best!" <-another famous song, Tina Turner

Capricorn
The Persians called this constellation the "Sea Goat"
Image
The capricorn is also associated with the deity of the Nature Pan who looks like a goat standing on its hind legs. Mythology tells that Pan's legs took under the water the shape of a fish tail to escape the sea monster Typhoon.

I was born on January 20th. the third and last decan of Capricorn.
Of the three decans, I am the happiest!
:P
Image

The personality traits of Capricorn that I possess:
A heart of gold (The necklace), Capricorn is always listening to you and by your side.
She likes simple pleasures and a quiet life. She is lonely and enjoys reading (The book) and music.
Shy and reserved. Serious and traditionalist, but often laughing (The comic smile) because he has a good sense of humor. She is faithful in love and friendship.

She likes animals. (The cat)
She likes to sleep! (The mask Ssshhh)
She hates cold! (The winter coat)
Its color: black. (The cat and the mask)
Favorite color: Garnet red (Glow)

Explanation
The graphics of Capricorn represent a fabulous being, a goat body that ends with a fish tail. It's a kind of bridge between the future and the past.
My duality : (Fish tail and goat horns). I like running in the meadows as much as swimming in the ocean! I am serious and crazy at the same time. I live in the present moment and I am nostalgic...

(Sense of humor!)
I love everything about my astrological sign. But I hate being born in Canadian winter! <_<

i am GEMINI :cool:

lets see what is true

Strengths: Gentle, affectionate, curious, adaptable, ability to learn quickly and exchange ideas , yes yes yes but i learn quickly but forgeting it also quickly :lol:

Weaknesses: Nervous, inconsistent, indecisive aaaah yes :crying:

Gemini likes: Music, books, magazines, chats with nearly anyone, short trips around the town YES especialy BOOKS

Gemini dislikes: Being alone, being confined, repetition and routine more or less YES :redface:

Expressive and quick-witted, Gemini represents two different personalities in one and you will never be sure which one you will face. They are sociable, communicative and ready for fun, with a tendency to suddenly get serious, thoughtful and restless. They are fascinated with the world itself, extremely curious, with a constant feeling that there is not enough time to experience everything they want to see.

MMM yes today I love one thing tomorrow another and so on, I do not know what I want or like, I like and love everything in any particular period of tiime :lol:

Strengths: Resourceful, brave, passionate, stubborn, a true friend
I don't know whether I'm resourceful or not but I'm way to passionate abt my career and I'm veryyy stubborn :P

Weaknesses: Distrusting, jealous, secretive, violent
All my weaknesses are damn true ;)

Scorpio likes: Truth, facts, being right, longtime friends, teasing, a grand passion
Teasing others is the thing I like the most

Scorpio dislikes: Dishonesty, revealing secrets, passive people
Truuueee

Scorpios are usually sexy and extremely passionate for love. That's why I'm dressed in quite a sexy way. They want intelligent and honest partners. Even I want someone who's HONEST. Once Scorpios fall in love, they are very dedicated and faithful. However, they enter into a relationship very carefully, because sometimes they need a lot of time to build trust and respect for partners.
Scorpio women are secretive, sexy, magnetic, but they also appear aloof and calm. The Scorpio woman has a great capacity for kindness and a desire to do good in the world. ( I don't think I'm sexy :lol:)

My sign was Leo.

I dressed in this outfit because it represents fire, and my hair is kind of like a lions mane. I am sorry I haven't done this before so :confused: I did my best.
