My entries for the Illamasqua Contest – Elementals *pic heavy*

23 May

Mizz Worthy runs a wonderful contest at her blog [see here: http://www.mizzworthy.com/2010/05/illamasqua-contest-elementals.html ], which is sponsored by Illamasqua. The theme of it is Elementals (a wink to Heraklitus, the famous Greek philosopher *fg*), so I’ve chosen water and fire. Of course, I could have pointed out the life-giving or destructive aspect of these elements in an abstract way but honestly, I didn’t feel like taking a metaphysical approach. Actually, my jewellery inspired me to paint the shark and the dragon.

Nevertheless, I can claim that both looks on my unpretty face are my ideas and creations. Besides, I haven’t used photoshop to improve the imperfections. From a realistic point of view, I can say that my chances to win a very low or let’s say nonexistent but I had much fun doing the make ups. Fun for fun’s sake or art for art’s sake!!! That’s my motto. I hope you can smile with me and have a neat weekend! Stay beautiful!

XOX, Mylanqolia

****************************************************************************

Auf Deutsch: Mizz Worthy veranstaltet aktuell einen wundervollen Wettbewerb, der von Illamasqua gesponsort wird. Das Thema lautet “Die 4 Elemente ” (wortwörtl. die Elementaren – in dem Kontext zwinkere ich Heraklit von Ephesos, dem antiken Philosophen, zu), was mich wiederum dazu führte, mich für Wasser und Feuer zu entscheiden. Natürlich hätte ich den lebenspendenden oder zerstörenden Apekt beider Elemente herausstellen können, doch mir schwebte in keinster Weise ein metaphysischer Denkansatz vor. Faktisch besehen, hat mein Schmuck die Wahl der Motive des Hais und des Drachens beeinflusst.

Nichtsdestotrotz kann ich mit Fug und Recht behaupten, dass beide Looks auf meinem unattraktiven Gesicht meiner Ideenwelt entsprungen und somit als meine Schöpfungen zu betrachten sind. Weiterhin stehe ich zu meinen Fehlern, denn ich habe kein Photoshop-Programm zur Hilfe genommen. Rein realistisch betrachtet, sind meine Gewinnchancen sehr gering, um nicht zu sagen nicht vorhanden, aber ich hatte meinen Spaß. Spaß um des Spaßes willen oder Kunst um der Kunst willen!!! So lautet zumindest mein Motto. Ich hoffe, dass Ihr mit mir zusammen lächeln könnt und ein tolles Wochenende habt! Bleibt schön!

    Hi there!
    Finally! I am back online and just wanted to acknowledge the entries! Apologies for the delay! Moving house sucks, but trying to get internet connected sucks even more… Please bear with me – we have had some fabulous entries so judging will be difficult, but keep checking my blog for the finalists!

    I love both looks but specially the first one, the shark is so cute (though he looks unhappy, hum?) and all the colours are so well coordinated! Did you win?

      Thanks so much that you like the shark look! It’s may fave too.🙂 But the sharks aren’t unhappy, they are pespectively distorted.😦 The finalists are drawn Monday next week, so I have to wait a bit. But I’m not convinced that I’ll be among them. There are more skilled people outside who deserve the prizes.🙂
