Item-chan, item-tan, etc.

A group to personify an inanimate object, or food as a human OC :3

Meaning non-living things. A humanized animal, like a cat, will not be accepted. Plant-related OCs will be accepted though. (we have plenty of similar affiliates that are suited to various/different needs :D)

And original artwork only (Bases are fine, but Gaia tekteks and tinierme avatars will not be accepted)

Geographical based OCs would be allowed (think Hetalia), though I think we may have more related affiliates as well for that. :'D

We do not accept literature submissions, sorry.

If they're personifications that don't quite fit in this group, these groups are probably general enough to accept them

I was wondering...the BFDI series are about inanimate objects that came to life in Goiky and began to battle for a dream island. (Season 4 has a number 4 and variable X in it)

Oh i've seen/heard about those "object shows" around looking for VAs and stuff. This group is mostly for personifications/making the charas look humanized but i'm sure we have some affiliates that would accept that type of art if you have it (or just groups specifically dedicated to that kinda series).

do humanized tv channels count?
TeruKun Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2018
Any thing that's non living beforehand would count, I think (though I'd be lenient on accepting plant-based gijinkas too)

Do you accept naval vessels and vehicles?
TeruKun Featured By Owner May 28, 2016
Yes vehicles count, I think we've had some ppl submit airplane and tank personifications before.
