Calling all costume drama lovers!  
As everyone here knows, I have a great love of both icon-making and of costume/period dramas. So, after seeing all these lovely communities committed to excellent iconage of their favourite fandoms, shows, etc., I though that costume and period drama deserved some love, too.

Thus, I’ve created costume_elite. It’s very similar to goodaustenicons, only instead of focusing on only Jane Austen, this community pertains to all costume and period drama related icons. This includes not only movies, mini-series and tv shows, but also book covers & quotes, paintings and photography.

Because it’s an "elite" community, membership is by invitation only, so icon-makers have to apply and be approved before they can have posting access. However, I need someone else to help me run the community and approve applicants (if it was just me judging all the applications, it wouldn’t be very fair, would it?) ;).

So if you’re interested in being a moderator, please head on over here and apply! (Comments will be screened.) Don't be shy!

But even if you’re not interested in moderating, I'd still like to know what everyone thinks. So please, check it out and let me know! (It's still in the works, mind you.) ;) Just reply to this post with your comment -- I look forward to hearing what everyone has to say. :)

Edited to Add: DO NOT try to join by clicking "to join the community, click here", please. The community is not yet open, and membership is through application only. I highly recommend checking out communities such as goodaustenicons, good_fanicons, good_cropping etc. if you're at all confused. I greatly apologize for any confusion I may have caused!

I think it is an excellent idea for a community! At first I was thinking, "Another period icon community?", but having all aspects (not just movies and such, but covers and everything) is perfect! I "joined", but I have to be approved still. My icon journal is nine_day_queen , but I still have to put up some things I've made in the past. I would love to help judge applicants, but I'm afraid I would agree to everyone no matter how bad they were because I wouldn't have the heart to deny them!

Anyway, just wanted to encourage you and say what a wonderful idea this is :) I've been wanting to make icons of book covers, so now I have an excuse!

Well, first off -- thank you! I'm so glad you like the idea. :)

However, I don't think you've read the rules completely, or at least don't quite understand them. I apologize if they weren't clear (the community hasn't been opened yet, so there are still a few things missing -- hopefully that should clear some things up).

But to explain:
By "apply" I don't mean clicking the "join" option; once the community is started, there will be an application post (such as this one at goodaustenicons), to which people will comment to with a sample of their icons, which will be judged by the moderators of the community. Each moderator will respond with a yes or no, depending on the quality of the applicant's icons. Once I have at least one fellow moderator on staff, I'll open the community, so that applicants must be approved by both moderators before gaining posting access. Once a person is approved, they are sent an invite to the community, which give them posting access.

Does that make any sense? If you're still unsure, feel free to ask me. :)

Oh, and I accidentally approved your membership request (I don't know how -- stupid computers...) so I had to remove you -- sorry if that caused you any confusion!

Will definitely apply when it's opened. I can never resist a costume drama community. :)

Hi. I really didn't want to post this here, but knickknackkat hasn't given me posting access yet and I didn't want you to wait until Sunday. Here's your banner :
