Deck the Icons 2007 - Request Post

deck_the_icons is an open community for people who molest manipulate icons for the holidays. We add santa hats, strings of lights, candy canes, snow, carol lyrics, candles, or any other object that turns your normal awesome icon into something super-awesome.

You can post icons you've manipulated.
- Specify if your icons are a gift for a specific person or if they are available for sharing with credit.
- Use an lj-cut if your entry contains more than 5 icons, 200 kb of graphics, or adult content.
- If you would like to help coell and the Icon Elves fill requests, please let us know!

If you use an icon from here, credit the maker.
- Common sharing etiquette is to credit the icon maker in the icon keyword or subject with "Made by ______".
- If the original icon was made by someone and we added something, please credit both. For example, "Made by ______, edited by deck_the_icons."

If you would like to make an icon request...
1. Comment to this post for a kind Icon Elf to deck your icon. We assume you want the one you post with, but you can also ask us to pick any one that would work best or inspires the best result.
2. Do you want something specific done to it or leave it up to us?
3. If you want a new icon created, give us links to the picture(s).
4. Can we share the icon? Please tell us who made it so we can credit them. If it's just for you, do you want your name added in (if it fits)?

Profanity, nudity, sexuality, and other adult themes are permitted, though warnings and lj-cutting are appreciated. And yes, we can sometimes alter your animated icons too.


The last day for decking is December 21,
since I'll be going on holiday and
won't have access to a computer.

YAAAAAAAY. I wait for this ALL YEAR. Seriously. *bounces*

COELL, PLEASE CAN YOU DECK MY DEFAULT (The one I'm using now)? I know I gave you lots of options last year, but OMG, having this one be-decked would make me SO happy. :D A santa hat is the most obvious option, but dude, do whatever you like!

It was made by me (circa77), and no, I'm sorry, THERE WILL BE NO SHARING.

Rarr! I'm in a pickle trying to keep his Doctor Crazy!HairTM showing... here are a couple simple ones til I figure out a way to sit a hat on there with some wispies remaining.

hahahha! This is awesome, just sayin'. I, of course, still have my most awesome icon. *g*
Nov. 18th, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
You're very welcome. Let me know if you want a new one for this year!

Awesome community! :) Just the thing to get my holiday spirit going!

Can some wonderful Icon Elf (or 2 or 3 :P ) deck my default icon, please? I've been using it for ages now and a good friend added the text for me a couple months back.

It's mine, mine, mine!! *grin* And no, no name added to it. I will reply to this with the original base icon minus the words as it's probably easier to work on.

I'd like a couple options to cycle through during the holidays, but have nothing special in mind and am open to wherever the creative flow takes you. :)

Thanks in advance!!

Can I have a new holiday icon, please?

Please feel free to customize any of my icons, they should all be properly credited on my icon page. Let inspiration strike you!

And it's okay if anyone shares!

Ooh, I always wondered where people go their awesome holiday icons!

if you please, I would looove to have this one christmas-ified:

Or, this one:

or pick another from my other hundred-odd icons if you're feeling uninspired!

And feel free to edit the text on those two if you wish :)

*edits again, because comment-editing is so shiny and fun*

I would be willing to share the drunk one, but not the porn fairy one (both are made by me, btw)

What an awesome comm!

Could you please deck my default icon? Do whatever you like with King Tut, I'm sure he appreciates it. :D

Since it's my default, I want to keep it for myself.

Thank you! :D

Yay! You're back!

I don't really think anything can be done with my default, but if you can, yes, please! I'd also love for you to do these three:

Go wild! The TARDIS needs some lights or garland or something. :-P You don't have to put my username on any of them

None to share this year.

Do you think it's possible to deck my icon? I'd love to spread a bit of holiday cheer in my posts. *g*

Well, since last year I switched my default icon, so any chance I can get this one done? Maybe glitterly lipstick and a flashing chili pepper. *giggles*
Or, really, whatever you think. You're brill at this. :)

Wow! This is really kind and generous.

I'd love my default icon to be reborn in a holiday avatar; it's only for me, since this is my personal default icon. You needn't fit my name into it, but feel free to replace the text if you like. My default was made for me by amelia_eve.

I would leave it up to the kind Icon Elf to choose what to do with my icon; a Christmas-type effect (as opposed to something more generically holiday-ish) would be much appreciated

I would love the icon I'm using now decked, or either of these, whichever work best. The one I'm using was made by eikonographika, the two I've provided were made by me.

With the second, fairy lights in the tree would be awesome if that worked/was possible. But whatever suits the maker. :)

I'm sorry - I realise these are probably terrible to try and work with...if they're all utterly unworkable, let me know and I'll grab something else.

Completely shareable. Thanks so so much! :)

Awesome! I already saw Christmas icons popping up here and there, so I immediately ran to check here. Could you please deck my default icon (the one I'm posting with) and also this one? Non sharable, they are for meee (and a friend) :D

Thank youuu! ♥

I'd love to have this icon christmas-fied. :)

I made it myself. Deck it out any way you would like. As it has my name on it already, it will not be shared.

Thank you so much!! <333
