This is a group all about Dresses! Specifically dresses, rather than just general outfits.
This is my attempt to rebuild the fantastic group "I love dresses", except that I didn't think to just rename the group "I love dresses" because that group was never mine. I was just heartbroken when that group stopped existing. I figured the world still needed a cache of beautiful dresses, and so if somebody must step up to create such a group, I would be happy to rise to the call. Please, come one and all and submit pictures of your dresses!
Your submission MUST have a dress in it, and it must either be the focus of the picture or an integral part of the composition. Pants/shirt combos will be declined. Schoolgirl uniforms will be declined. If you're kind of on the fence about "Is this 'a dress' or not, really?" I ask that you not submit it. As a customer service rep, I spend all day telling people "no", and it's super lame coming home and having to keep doing the same thing. :c Be merciful, kind lords!
CLEARLY a Dress
There must be no confusion that the picture in question is of a dress! If you're only submitting the top half of a dress which might pass for a shirt, it will be declined!
There are tons of groups for doll dress-ups; this is not one of them. If you have your OWN base, you may use it.
If you're submitting a photo of a person in a dress, I ask that you're either the photographer, the model, or the person who made the dress, instead of a person editing somebody else's stock - even if your edit is beautiful.
This is especially true for Disney dresses. I love Disney dresses as much as the next person, but we all know what they look like by now. If you want to submit your own SPIN on a Disney dress, I will accept an alteration to a disney dress. (I will be a lot more lenient with cosplay here, but cosplay submissions must still fully show the full dress)
If you drew your dress or took a photo of your dress from 5 different angles, I only want ONE Of those submissions to prevent a flood of the same dress being repeatedly submitted. Bear in mind, if you have ONE submission with multiple pictures of that dress in that submission, that is OKAY. Just pick your favorite picture!
I'll make exceptions for elves or fantasy humans, but anthropomorphic submissions will be declined; No Amy Rose, No Minnie Mouse, No Ponies, no original anthropomorphic Characters. :c Sorry.
This has mostly come up so far with Transformation fetishes, but this will still be declined. Any submission having to do with a canon character or an original character transforming into a girl and being in a dress, either looking uncomfortable or over-sexualized, this will be declined. Also will be declined: BDSM, Vore, Gore, and others. I'm not saying that all sexiness is not allowed, because some dresses are darn sexy! But this is about the dress itself, not whatever turns you on. We've all got our fetishes, but let's keep those out of this dress group, please.
I'd like to only display finished peices. I ask that if you submit a pencil peice, it is submitted very cleanly, and MSPaint Submissions are only submitted if you're exceptionally skilled with MSPaint.
And that's the list of things that AREN't allowed - only things that I WILL allow!
- Nice looking fanart of people in dresses.
- Any media, as long as a dress is the main focus.
- Your own personal stock photographs
- Your own cosplay dresses
- Your original characters in a dress
- A dress on a sewing mannequin, doll, or floating in air
- Any dress made out of any material, regardless of length... unless it kinda crosses the line into "fetish" material (see above). I'm not saying that anything even slightly sexy would be declined, because then this group wouldn't exist.
- Kimonos and other asian-dress type equivalents. It's going to be kind of weird because robes and long jackets in general are not going to be accepted, but if they are clearly a kimono or something of that kind (which is kind of a thin line away from 'robe'), it will be.
