New Contest Poll

Hi all! Been a while since I've done anything on this blog. Usually when I have a long hiatus like this I try to have a contest running simultaneously, so people can produce caps while I'm busy and be able to organize everything while I'm around. But this time I didn't and one of the major reasons why is because I wasn't excited about any of the contest themes I had prepared. So that's where you all come in! I've narrowed down to three options which I will describe as follows:

  1. Athlete Contest: As the title implies, a lot of sports related photos plus some related topics like cheerleading. May also include some various images for imaginative "Olympic" competitions like Sissy Diving, High Heel Racing, Feminization Decathalon, or whatever fun ideas you can invent.
  2. Accessory Contest: A theme based around various accessories to a feminine appearence, such as earrings, bracelets, high heels (maybe), tattoos, hairbands, etc. Would allow you to focus in on a specific transformation item or something to motivate the cap. As a warning, I don't have a lot of great pictures for this at the moment so it may take a bit longer to get this contest up and running.
  3. Sequel Contest: Without trying to bias the vote, this is the most interesting/complex option. The idea of this contest would be to find a captions you like (either done by me, yourself, or anyone else you can send me a link to) and write a sequel to that captions. Some alternatives if you don't want to do something like that is to write your own two-parter or write a caption as if something has already happened and imply what has changed.
So those are the options - now I want your feedback! I'll be adding a poll to the side of the blog to run for a week. Vote there, add a comment, or send me an email to give me your opinion on what you want to see next!

Best,
Elena Starz

Second Salon/Makeover Contest Presentation

Hello everyone! I am very pleased to post the submissions for the Second Salon/Makeover contest! Really amazing turnout for this one - 30 captions from 10 different people is impressive and I think reflective of the fact that people were interested in this theme. If there are other themes you are interested, let me know! I have noted some of the suggestions that people have sent me previously and if there is overlap in requests from multiple people, then it is all the more likely that the theme will be used. Now enjoy these great caps!

Contest Reminder(s)!

Hi all! A few quick notes - first, the Second Salon/Makeover Contest is taking submissions for the next 50 hours (unless I get a note from someone asking for a little more time). I've already got some excellent caps from a variety of people, but this was an in-demand theme so I'm hoping I can get a few more before the deadline. Secondly, I'm still looking for responses to the three questions I put in this post here - I got a great note from C2Sanon (thank you very much for that!) but no one else so far. Hoping that might change soon because it is quick, easy, and I'd appreciate more opinions on it!

Finally, my friend Slutty Eve is running their first caption contest! For those of you who don't know, Slutty Eve runs a site that specializes in interracial content a la Wes Mantooth, Nikki Jenkins, Anderson Creed, and that I myself dabbled in occasionally. While the caption contest does not require an interracial caption, the vast majority of images cater to that theme, so if that's not your cup of tea you have been warned. However, if you are interested in the theme, or another chance to flex you captioning muscles, check out the contest page here. The deadline is down the road on May 1st, so I'll probably post more notes about this later on.

Thanks all!

Three Questions and a Contest Reminder!

Hi all! First, a friendly plug for the Second Salon/Makeup Contest that is taking submissions - I know at least a few of you are interested in this theme and I am hoping that posting this over the weekend might catch a few more people interested in participating! Secondly, I wanted to do something a little interactive with you all. I was thinking recently about one of my favorite TG themes, bimbos, and realized that people have very different conceptions of what defines a "bimbo". So I've got three questions for you that I'm hoping to get some responses on:
  1. What is the definition of a "bimbo" to you?
  2. What are some good "bimbo" names (first names, but ideally some last names too)?
  3. Which models (pornstars, drag queens, celebrities, etc.) would you consider to be good representations of bimbos?
So for example, my responses to this would be 1. A bimbo is a well-endowed, frequently blonde individual with a high sex drive and a bubbly/ditzy personality. 2. Candy Cumdrops, Fifi Freelove, Bambi Bigtits, or Roxxi Coxx might be good full names for bimbos. 3. There's a lot that qualify but I'm partial to Summer Brielle, Amy Andressen, and Loredana Chivu as three archetypes. But this isn't about me! I want to hear you thoughts in comments or via email to me sometime in the next week! There isn't a direct incentive to this, although who knows what kind of contests might make these questions relevant down the road ;)

Second Salon/Makeover Caption Contest

At the request of multiple people, we're going back to the first ever contest I ever ran for a classic theme - Salon/Makeovers! There are a ton of pics in this set (and likely some duplicates from previous contests...sorry about that), but feel free to find your own images because I know there are a lot of excellent options that I couldn't include even in this massive set. The deadline for this will be Monday, April 10th - looking forward to seeing what you all produce!

Guidelines
1. I will post images and a general theme to focus your work slightly
2. You all will take these images I have offered below OR anyone you want to use and send either a completed caption (meaning image and text formatted together) or text with the image to go to it (I will put a cap together if you don't know how or would rather that I format it!) to starzcaptioncontests@gmail.com (my contest specific email).
3. You may submit as many captions as you want. All captions must be TG or crossdressing in some format (F2F is not really a theme of this blog, but in case any of you wanted to try this, I would prefer that you didn't).
4. After the submission deadline, I will sort post all the captions that you sent me in a single post!

THEME: SALON/MAKEOVER - A straight-forward theme with a lot of options. If you're focusing on the salon angle, maybe look into what the salon is known for. Is it a crossdressing transformation salon or a salon run by drag queen who offer "free" makeovers to unruly customers? If you don't want to dive into a salon, think about how you can talk about a MtF makeover! Perhaps it's a forced makeover for a male beauty pageant, or a mother punishing a son by sissifying them, or maybe something sweeter like a pair of brothers dressing up together because they both love dresses and high heels. Whatever inspiration strikes, go out there and makeover a cap!
