Guess that Character - The Big Reveal!

PaRt TwO of this spectacular fun fest!!!

Again a huge thanks to all those who participated and for all those who took the time to blog hope and give your guesses! 61 of you joined in on the fun... Did you hear me??? 61!!! Without you this would not have been a success!! So make sure to visit the others!!

Isn't this the perfect way to end the week? Revealing the characters!! Were you close? Did you get anything right?

I've provided two pictures and I will tell you a little bit about my character and help with descriptions, since let's face it, my character isn't as good looking as the actress I'm about to show you!

Sadie Jones is played by the lovely and talented Selena Gomez. Yes my character was indeed a girl.

Real Description of Sadie:

Long black hair, unlike her mother's adorable blonde locks. Blue eyes, the only trait her mother happened to pass down. Short in height and an oval face that didn't help her fit in either. As far as clothing goes earth friendly is an understatment, it's almost earth friendly meet hobo style... but that's all about to change when she moves to Cascade.

A little more info on Sadie:

Sadie isn't your typical teenager, She's a witch. (Ironic I know. I hadn't realized Selena was the oh so fabulous actress who played on the Wizards of Waverly, but hey guess it was just meant to be! *focus jen focus*) What makes matters worse is that she's also the girl that nobody likes, the one the Queen Bee (Stacy Finnegan & Veronica - who you've yet to meet) can't help but pick on her (PS they've already made this judgement before they even knew she was a witch! I know, I know! I can't believe it either!). Which is why she wants to murder Stacy Finnegan.



When Sadie is kicked out of school her mother decides it's time to move on and start a new life. She takes Sadie to a small town in Iowa where they must start over. This time Sadie has a plan, to take down the Queen Bee before she takes down Sadie. Problem is the new Queen Bee is Veronica, and she's got a secret of her own. Nothing in Sadie's world is ever easy.

Below I decided Sadie should give her best impression of the prissy Queen Bee pose, I think she rocked it don't you?



So were you close? Way off? I had a lot of fun reading your responses and my absolutely favorite was Nicole Ducleroir's answer! She guessed it spot on... Selena Gomez was her entry! Way to pick my character Nicole!

aspiring_x said...

aw man i was off here too!!! (i haven't gotten a single one right so far!!))
BUT I LOVE SELENA GOMEZ!!!
that kid CRACKS me up!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

NO WAY?! When I scrolled to the first photo I thought, didn't I say Selena?? That's too hilarious!

I'd say it's more a testament to your writing, though. You channeled her essence beautifully, for me!

Thanks for the fun!

Lenny said...

hi miss jen! i did pretty good except for her hair color. i got the blue eyes and her shape and pretty close to her age. it was lots of fun. now i gotta go look what i said and then say how wrong i was. ha ha.
...hugs from lenny

Amy Saia said...

I wasn't completely close, was I? Haha. Oh well, it just goes to show that we don't have control over the way people see our characters, and that's okay. As long as someone can connect with them, that's all that matters. And each person did, in their own way. Great, fun idea, Jen!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Perfect. She makes a great queen bee and could totally pull off the witch look.

61! What a great turn out. I tried to get to everyone's last night but I ran out of time. Hope I can at least see all the reveals later tonight.

GREAT BLOGFEST! Thanks again.

Susan Fields said...

I was probably way off! Great character and this blogfest was so much fun! thanks jen!

Debs said...

I would never have been able to guess correctly either.

Mary Campbell said...

I totally commented yesterday, but I don't see my comment now. I pictured her with long very straight flyaway hair, and thin with baggy clothes. Love so Selena - she's perfect for your witch character. Thanks for hosting Jen - this was way fun.

Summer Ross said...

Thats really neat, Go Nicole at guessing very well! Thanks for showing off her looks Jen!

Shelley Sly said...

So, being absent from the blog world the past two days has really put me at a disadvantage, since I didn't get to play along with this brilliant blog fest! But I just wanted to congratulate you on such a successful one, and say that I love the idea! :)

Lola Sharp said...

Very close to how I pictured her...except I imagined blue eyes. Other than that...spot on.

I like your choice. She's adorable.

Happy weekend!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

The ghost of Sherlock Holmes is disgusted with me. LOL.

Thanks for providing such a blast of a blogfest. It's obvious that everyone involved had a great time -- me included.

You were a trooper to read and comment on each and every one of the participants. And they were heartfelt and intelligent comments, too, not just hastily scribbled generic ones.

Again, thanks, Roland

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Sigh...I was wrong, again. lol. This was so much fun though.
Now I've seen a picture I can totally picture Sadie :)

Talei said...

Ha! My guess was off the mark but I have to say Sadie is lovely - she'll make a good little witch!!

Thanks so much for hosting such a great blogfest - it was my first and I thoroughly enjoyed it. ;))

Ezmirelda said...

So she looks like Selena Gomez?
I was almost close, with the hair, not the eyes though. I thought they were green, not blue.

Guinevere said...

Oh, fun to meet your character! I love seeing what they look like. And what a fun idea for a blogfest!

Lorna said...

Hehe, I was very wrong in my guess! Thank you so much for this blogfest, it has been so so much fun and introduced me to loads of great new blogs.
