She walked on her naked feet, which were quite red and blue with the cold. She carried several packages of matches, and she held a box of them in her hand... "

 Jinjah and Moehug loosely based on Hansel and Gretel

Animation link: http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1937657
"Jinjah and Moehug planned all night long how to escape the evil cannibalistic witch until it was fool proof, but when it came time to flee Moehug instinctively stopped and reached her arms out to the witch for a goodbye hug. As she felt the witch sink her claws into the flesh covering her tiny ribcage, Moehug realized her mistake and accepted her fate, embracing the last hug,it seemed,that she would ever receive.

Jinjah watched in horror as the witch lifted Moehug in the air ,cackling wildly at her victory! Jinjah's heart sank but he knew it was now or never and crawled through the crack under the door . Once outside, he jumped up like a spring toy and ran screaming for his life as fast and as far from the little gingerbread house as he could on his 2 wafer thin,cookie legs!!!

As it turns out, the witch did not have a taste for moehog meat and Moehug was blessed by the light faerie with a forever home in the candy cottage ,bringing warmth, love and vegetables back into the life of an old, lonely witch . The End."

*Note from your host: I've never seen Descendants 3, and I honestly don't know if it qualifies as a fairy tale, but I didn't feel that was enough reason to actually disqualify this entry.

Yay, fairy tales and stories, such a fun and interesting theme! 🙂 I`ve really looked forward to seeing how everyone solved this challenge, and I must say congratulations on your creativity, and I love the variety of these entries. Little Red Riding Hood was clearly a popular choice, and it`s fun to see different interpretations of the same story and character. Love the wolf/Lupe twists, cool!
I recognize all the stories except nr 5, could someone clear up for me which story it`s based on?

It`s so hard to pick favourites, there are so many strong contenders here, but I have a soft spot for the Pinocchio entry to be honest. ❤️
I love that helpful Zafara pointing at the poor, almost naked Skeith in his "new clothes," wonderful use of that item, lol. Also, there`s finally a chance to use that underwear item!
The Pied Piper one is very nicely done as well, I like the use of swarming petpetpets in place of the rats, and the outfit looks great.

I haven`t watched any of the The Descendants movies, but it`s a nice customization! So many great stories and interpretations. Great job, guys!

Nice, good lot of entries this time around! 👍

Oh I'm glad to see someone did The Emperor's New Clothes, I considered that but got side-tracked in the end!

Pinocchio's Blue fairy! Clever. :D

*snorts at Rip Van Winkle*  🤣

@aleu1986 I didn't exactly know his story, other than he went to sleep for a long time. But Wiki says...

Sounds like an excuse for not turning up, to me. Right up there with "the dog ate my homework". 😂

@Nielo it's a series of movies about Descendants from famous Fairy Tale (Disney) Villains such as Maleficent and Jafar , so I guess it qualifies :)

These are excellent! Especially love lil' Pinocchio. 

I really wanted to do Princess and the Pea, but Neopets has a surprising lack of wearable pea-related items. And then I thought, hmm, maybe use a Pea Chia and work around that. Didn't work out. Maybe he'll go in Alt Entries sometime, LOL. 🤣

That's one I wondered about too, but didn't even start looking into items for because I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off, lol.

Thanks. 🙂 I did google it (I'd heard of the film series, just never bothered to look it up before), to check if it could potentially qualify. :smile:

Amazing entries :heart: 

I'm not really knowledged on Fairy Tales and there are some entries that I don't know what they are about :sad:

I usually just google the ones I don't know. (I'd never heard of Rip van Winkle either; I'm guessing that one's mostly famous in the US.) Are there any in particular you'd like to know more about? (I think all of the entries - except perhaps the last one - have the fairy tale's name somewhere in the title or description, so they should be fairly easy to look up. :smile: )

Angelo and Jellysundae explained #5 and #11 in their posts - #1 is a fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, about a poor little girl who wanders the street of the city on New Years Eve, trying to sell matches. She`s freezing because she`s lost her shoes and only has a tattered dress on. Trying to warm herself, she strikes a match to warm her hands on the small flame, and with each match she strikes, she has a vision: One of a beautiful Christmas tree, one of a marvelous feast, and lastly she sees her grandmother who appears before her and takes the little girl with her to heaven. The story ends with people walking by, seeing the cold body of the girl sitting with the burnt matches in her hand. It`s a sad story!

There are animated versions of the story available on YouTube. You can read it in English here: https://andersen.sdu.dk/vaerk/hersholt/TheLittleMatchGirl_e.html

This was a fun round, congrats to the winners! And thanks guys for the story explanations - mine was Rip van Winkle, and I didn't realize the story was not well known in other countries! And there were a couple here that I wasn't familiar with either, so it's cool we learned new stories from this too! 😀 I do want to get around to posting my alternative entries, as well...

Oh, I didn't realise it was @gypsyknees who had won, well done! THAT makes up for forgetting to enter in the past, right? :D

@FreakyBowie I laughed out loud at your entry, that reaction's always gonna guarantee a vote from me, lol. I just LOVE how the Zafara's all "look at that idiot" 😄

@AppaMomo It's really interesting about Rip van Winkle, I wasn't aware, until looking him up, that it was a US story, so I must have just known the name and the bare bones from him being mentioned in passing on US films and TV shows I should think.

@aleu1986 The Little Match Girl story is so sad. 😭

It's rather nice, in Hogfather, how Terry Pratchett gives that story a different ending by having Death save the little match girl and hand her over to the City Watch to be taken care of. Much to the annoyance of the angel that comes down to take her to heaven after she's supposed to have died. THAT being just gets snowballs thrown at them by Death's servant, Albert. 🤭

Quote

(It should be mentioned at this point that Albert complained that it was against the Rules to do this, but Death pointed out that, in his capacity as temporary Hogfather, he was allowed; "The Hogfather gives presents. There's no better present than a future.")

I love how moral Terry Pratchett was, particularly as he made Death his most moral character.

I actually can't believe I won, my first gold 😭💕 Thank you so much everyone, I really thought there were others far better but it just goes to show we judge ourselves the hardest. Even though I barely know of Rip van Winkle, that entry and Cinderella were my favourites but I honestly loved every single one. I think I just love fairy tales 😛
