bootleg toys and dress a doll compention

Hey everyone!  Here's something different.  A few pictures of bootleg toys I've found in stores (Big Lots mostly)

Surprised that Big Lots has TWO kinds of Transformer bootleg toys.

Aslo found a new line of Bratzillaz in the stores, which I thought were bootleg at first (oops!) They are a 'basic' line without the joints and painted eyes instead of insert eyes.

In other news, I am considering started a monthly (or weekly) fashion design contest.  The idea is still in the works.  Basically, at the beginning of each month/week I will post a doll base.  I will give a brief description of the character and guide lines... You would design an outfit for the doll either drawn or using photos of fashion (polyvorr) then using any photo sharing site you wish (facebook/pintreset/flicker/picasawebs/webshots/tumblr/) you would post a link to your entry.  I don't want to ask for an email since I know not everyone is confident giving their email addresses out.  At the end of the contest period, I will choose 2-3 winners and draw the costumes they designed for the doll and give credit.  This would be like the old comic periodicals like Boots/Tillie/Kat Keene where people send in their design ideas.

Would you be intrested in a contest like that?  Let me know! Also a new poll will be up regarding this.
