Period / Costume
Posting Access:
Select Members

Hello and welcome to period_rumble, a community dedicated to history and period costumes as depicted in films, art, etc. All of the challenges will have a historical setting or related to history in some way and have a common theme. Our cut off point from history is 1945, with the end of World War II.

What is a RUMBLE? It's very similar to any icontest you will find here on Livejournal, however; unlike your regular icontests or a LIMS, Rumble participants (those who sign up for the competition) will submit their icons and instead of the process of elimination, winners are determined by their cumulative scores for a round. The member with the most points at the end of the round wins.
