Alright, I know I promised that this place would get going again, and I know I promised that a while ago. I understand if you're mad, I would be too! But here is the thing: none of the mods have the time, energy, nor the passion to put into this community anymore, least of all myself. It's not the hardest job in the world, but it's difficult to do when you aren't self-motivated. I'm sad to have to say that the Fleur de Lys Modeling Agency is closing it's doors for good, but... it's definitely closing them for now. You've all worked very hard, and I'm very proud of you, but I'd rather give you at least some closure, rather than keep you hanging on for six months at a time, until I can work up the energy to post something. I'm sorry for everyone who had their hopes up, but I can't really see another way.

What I do what to announce, though, is that I have a new community - it's something I've been wanting to do and sitting on for a while, and I think that now is the time to actually debut it! The community is candybarstyle, and while it's similar to FDL or candybarmodels in that it is based on challenges, but it's different in that it's based more on user participation than on structured competition. There's not a lot up yet, but please, if you're interested, go ahead and start posting! Maybe you can, ahem, post the photos from your last photoshoot? That I never put up? Just a thought, haha.

Also, I do need someone else to help me run it - as we know, it helps to have someone who's actually really passionate and motivated to help move things along. Basically, the job entails posting challenges and making sure everything runs smoothly. It is a lot simpler than being a judge, let me tell you, so let me know if you're interested!


I like this new idea. That way I don't feel so bad when I have no time to finish something. Yay! :)
Aww this sucks. Really looking forward to finishing this :( But I'll definitely join Candybar Style :)

And sorry for the plug, but I know a lot of ppl here enjoy these sorta CB Doll fashion-oriented things and may still want to keep competing in big, full length competitions. www.rtvgames.com has a really large community of CB Doll editors if anyone is interested in checking that out.
