Deadline: June 30, 1999
So here's the challenge:
First, don't do anything more revealing than Kathy Ireland would wear.
Fanzing doesn't need an AdultPass!
Swimsuit style does count. The idea is to present the most stylish outfit. Part of that is to take into account the individual's (presumed) tastes, as in the examples of Fire and Ice above. If the character's an exhibitionist, then something skimpy is appropriate. If she's shy, then a one-piece (or an outfit from the 1920s!) would be more accurate. If she's a rich clotheshound like Sue (Mrs. Elongated Man) Dibny, then an expensive designer suit would be expected.
And let's not forget, there's always the bikini-form of the regular costume!
So use your imaginations. Or, if you need some references well, I'm sure there's someplace on the Web that might contain pics of women in bikinis. Just possibly.
Now, if you still need some suggestions: there's a list below. You can check out the winners of last year's contest via the following URL: http://www.fanzing.com/mag/fanzing09/art2.htm. And if you want to compete but are really stuck for a good idea, you can always collaborate with a Fanzing writer (ye olde editor has a couple good ideas and can't draw stick figures!).
Entries must be in a digital format such as GIF, JPG or BMP (scan in your drawings if necessary). Photomanipulations are allowed for backgrounds, although doing a background by hand can help your score. All acceptable entries will be shown in the issue.
The next contest will be a little more intellectual.
