URL: http://pics.livejournal.com/helium_icons/pic/000xhzd5

* It's okay if you don't know. This just helps for people who want to find out more about the character(s) featured. ^^

1. Two icons per contestant per challenge (unless otherwise stated).
2. Icons should follow rules stated in the specific weeks challenge post.
3. If you submit an icon, it must be your own personal work.
4. All icons must meet livejournal standards - under 40kb and 100x100px in GIF, JPG, or PNG format.
5. Icons must be remotely hosted on a site that allows direct linking (you can use a free Photobucket account).

VOTING
Voting occurs in response to the voting post via a poll or comments. You do not have to be a member to vote; however, anonymous votes are not allowed.
