Heavy Metal Mavens

Heavy Metal Mavens

This is a group for all of your heavy-metal inspired sets.
 
***ALL SETS must include something related to a metal band - an accessory, a picture, a reference. Even if the reference is only in the description, it must be to a particular band(s)***
 
I'm looking for dark metalhead outfits, no pop-punk skinny-jean junk. Also please, not looking for too glammy or classic metal -- darker is better. not alot of metalcore, please. Go gothic metal! There is also a strong bent for female-fronted metal bands.
Push boundaries, take REAL inspiration from your favourite music artists.
 
Darker metal genres:
Black metal, Death metal, Doom metal, Gothic metal, Industrial metal, Progressive metal, Sludge metal, Symphonic metal
Sometimes a little goth music sneaks it's way in too.
 
Some of my favourite metal bands represented so far:
After Forever, A Perfect Circle, Apocalyptica, Arch Enemy, Avenged Sevenfold, Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, Emilie Autumn, Epica, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Nightwish, Nine Inch Nails, Pantera, Rammstein, Samael,, Sirenia, Slipknot, System of a Down, Theatre of Tragedy, Type O Negative, Windir, Within Temptation, ...

Create Your Fantasy World

Create Your Fantasy World

This group is like no other group on Polyvore! Make your own world through a series of prompts (not a roleplay). READ THE ENTIRE PROFILE before you join. Be a part of something amazing!
 
IF YOU WANT TO JOIN:
 
Press "Ask to Join" and then please PM me and tell me that you read the group profile so that I know you will not post sets inconsistent with the theme. I'm sorry to be a pain, but for whatever reason, I'm getting TONS of fashi0n accounts that want to join, not read the guidelines, and then spam the group with fashi0n and beauty sets. It's taking up a lot of my time to try to moderate that, so just send me a quick PM to let me know you're on board and you know what's going on. Thanks! (If I invited you to join, then you don't need to send me a PM. I think it will automatically go through, and if not, I'll recognize your account name.)
 
WHAT WE’RE DOING:
 
In this group, different contests will guide you through creating your own world and the people who inhabit it. Sometimes you’ll have control over your characters’ traits, and at other times, you’ll be given a full character description and asked to show what they look like. Storylines are sometimes full plots but sometimes they’re just everyday situations your characters get put into. This helps make your world more real. Storylines are pre-written, so even though you'll have a chance to add your own creativity, it’s best to come in without a preconceived story you want to tell, but rather to build your world around the contest prompts as you get them.
 
HOW IT WORKS:
 
Contests are designed in groups (progressions) that pertain to a theme. There are 4 general types of contests: “character,” “setting,” “object,” and “storyline.” Usually, the first 3 types of contests will contribute to the 4th one.
______________________________
 
CURRENT THEME:
 
Public Transportation
 
WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW:
 
We're currently creating sets based on the creepy transportation maintenance guy. This theme ends soon with Contest #32. After that, we'll have a "2nd Chances" contest where you can enter any non-winning sets you made for this theme (starting with Contest #20). If you missed a contest and want to go back and create a set for it, that works, too! The "2nd Chances" contest will only last for 3 days, and there will be a 3-set limit.
 
INSIDER INFO:
 
Our next theme will be adventure-based. Get ready to have an adventure!
______________________________
 
NO OBLIGATION:
 
Just because the contests are designed loosely around a theme doesn’t mean that you have to do every contest in that theme in order to participate. Most contests are stand-alone, so you can do as many or as few as you like, whenever you like.
 
COLLECTION:
 
It’s suggested that you make a collection of all of your sets from this group in order to give your world cohesion and so that others can view it. You can give your world a name in the collection.
 
HASHTAG:
 
We have our own hashtag – #yfw! (Your Fantasy World)
 
WELCOME!!!:
 
This is a small but great group of very talented and very nice people, so I hope you will join us and feel at home here.
 
WHAT YOU CAN POST:
 
Post your fantasy-related sets here, even if they don’t have to do with Your Fantasy World, including art, interiors, dolls, etc. -- basically anything except for fashi0n or beauty sets.
 
WHAT YOU CAN'T POST
 
No profanity, self-harm, or nudity. No fashi0n sets. No beauty sets.
 
OTHER STUFF:
 
This group was adopted on July 13, 2016.
