Day 25 of the Daily Steemit Selfie Challenge begins now!

Our registered players are competing against each other in an elimination endurance contest where their selfies must be posted on a daily basis and must meet the theme qualifications.

Not only must they post their qualifying selfies prior to the deadline to avoid elimination, they are also competing against one another for bonus points.


Each day, I will be rewarding one player each day with a "quick draw" bonus point for being the first to reply with a qualifying selfie. Yesterday, our QUICK DRAW WINNER was:




Each day I will notify you of your current Bonus Point Leader. Remember, whoever gets the most by the end of the contest will win 1 Limited Edition STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Silver Round! Here is your current leader:

@bluelightbandit with 23 total Bonus Points










The secret Bonus Bonus Point thing for the last round was to have another person in your selfie.






Oh nooo! I lost one on that round.



To qualify for this round, take a selfie of yourself blowing out some kind of powder!

You could use flour, powdered sugar, corn meal, or some other sort of SAFE powder.

I chose to use powdered peanut butter, and was only mildly scolded by @mama-pepper. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT KIND OF POWDER YOU USED.

Please remember as well, that the goal is to have all players take a new, qualifying selfie each day to enter into this contest.

Reply to this post with your qualifying selfie by 7:30 pm (CST) tomorrow to avoid elimination. As always, no entry post is required, but you are free to make a post featuring your entry if you want to. By entering this contest you are giving me full permission to use your entries in future contest posts. Thanks and have fun!

PLEASE REMEMBER - If you post more than one photo, you will not be allowed to be valid for receiving bonus points. Make it count!


The current prize pool is 385 SBD, not including Bonus Points. It will continue to grow on a daily basis! That means that the longer you hang in there, the larger it gets!

Until next time…

Don’t waste your time online, invest it with

Taking one for the team...



What kind of powder is that?

LOL tastes good cooked, not so good raw, more went up my nose and into my lungs though ;( Cheer$;)

@papa-pepper just to elucidate as per your above previse, if we post more than 1 pic no bonus points? ie: Two pics in comments or changing the pic later as I do from the 'quick draw' pic to something better? Cheer$:)

Changing photos is fine, as long as only one selfie is provided for each day.

Sweet brother, Cheer$;)

Congrats again dude, Scarface!

LMAO.....Craig Montana?

Lol thanks @bluelightbandit and @stuntworksinc much appreciate I feel kinda bad though, I can now post directly from my phone which really helps, The King @bluelightbandit will be back tomorrow I'm convinced. PS: Craig Montana? I'm from South Africa matey who's he? Back to sleep 2:30 am Cheer$;)

In the movie "scarface" Al Pacino is "Tony Montana" and at one point has his face covered in cocaine after slamming it into a pile on his desk.

haha well lets face it with a challenge like this I am guessing the word 'cocaine' was bound to come up at least once eh ;)

Here you go again! Congrats!

Ahahhaha..party2 😂

Second, that kind of powder did you use?

Flour and it was gross btw

and it covered my phone LOL it was fun though.

I figured some people would run for that! Yuk!

It was 1 second quicker to get to than the sugar was and I know every second counts when trying to get the QD bonus

good question !!

You are so fast! Well done!


I just want u to know i did have another person in my selfie.... but its ok.. i dont expect anything.. image

Nope, you are right. BONUS POINT!

Expect the unexpected - papa does ask that we help him identify these things ;p

I do need help sometimes!

We are pending papa!

11 minutes til the next round. Very exciting!

Ah! You guys daylight savings'd! Now I see whats happening here ;p

Yeah, it is another conspiracy, but we humor them for now.

At least everyone already replied!

Big conspiracy that one! Down here in the tropics we just shake our heads; the sun hasnt moved at all!

Selfie or photography? Selfie is something that you clicks your own pic by almost every pic clicked by other.....

I'm doing it the same as @tecnosgirl phone for quick draw (and other pics), camera with remote, and gopro which can be run from my phone for certain shots (like the falling into water and stars shot because it could kind of mate up to night vision).

@papa-pepper asked me about one of the shots I took awhile back, so I sent a pic of the setup I had used with my phones timer. I had seen several folks that appeared to be using timers or remotes and wanted to do a more creative cooler pic.

I don't think anyone is trying to "cheat"'s just become a lot of fun to get creative with the contest and using these tools help in that creativity. Heck I remember taking selfies with film cameras using the timer years ago....because you don't really want an arm in your memories. LOL For me, I just want to try and do something cool or fun.

Papa-pepper makes his own rules!

Timers on cameras changes it a bit.

How u gonna judge whether it is timers or someone else fingers?

There is no way to tell on my end.

All selfies here! Sometimes you have to trust the integrity of the contestant.
And It looks like most folks here are taking selfies

I take mine from my phone to make post quick. But I have a remote for my camera and I do all my own family photos using it. Then you also have timers now too on cameras.

i guess the fun and the smile on our faces is worth more than any other thing

EDIT: So baking soda WAS NOT a good choice, but stuff in the kitchen was buried and I was going for the quick draw.

I went over a couple of different ideas, tested 'em a bit, and settled on this because it's helping me learn some things on my new camera.

This time I chose FLOUR, so I'm learning....hopefully. LOL

2nd pic is a temp to show the progression cause I thought it was cool. I'll have to pull it off tomorrow before the cutoff.



What is it? You got fourth by the way,

Baking soda WAS NOT a good choice. Just all that I had, or baby powder.

Looks like a trip to the store is in order.

Baking soda?!?!?! Wow! What dedication!


Baking soda? Yuk. Dude, you are hardcore!

No.....just "special"

haha! I'm special with you.

Hahaha were on same boat. Only baking soda or powder! And Im so late but did take a chance on powder that didnt look like i blow it out! Cant capture it!!! Redo tomorrow.

Hahaha so baking soda is useful too in this contest

Not so much. LOL



Good lighting on that shot.

Took my big worklights and aimed them at my back and up.

Its fun figuring all this stuff out. Youve created a bunch of monsters. LOL

Hey an idea for my pic, but I might need to add a video as a "proof" since i think it might not look like powder.

Is that okay? Can pull the vid off once you verify the pic.

Decided to go with a different idea. I'll tell what it was after the cutoff....don't want anyone stealing muh ideaers.

Hey @papa-pepper, if you get a chance check out your chat. Had a question for ya, seeking guidance oh wise one.

Is it just me, or do a lot of these pics look like a Saturday night fraternity party about 2am???

Only looks like about 1am in my time zone....

This is about what I remember, yes.

The aftermath of being artistic.


I am in an hotel in Lisbon for SteemFest. Do you think I have some powder in my luggage?
I had to steal some powdered sugar during my breakfast to get this picture.
And of course it is hard to smile while blowing powdered sugar, so no smile today.


You could write a whole book called 'smile another day'!

The 'will V smile' subtext is one of my favorite mini-arcs of this selfie contest ;p

Looks like too much partying at steemfest. ;-)

An early greetings to all. Merry christmas!!😁😁
I used all purpose starch for this round @papa-pepper.


Nice touch with the funnel!

thanks sir i really enjoy my face and body after doing this.. :) im full of flour!

Haha yes! Papa gave us a good excuse to take a shower 😂😂😂

What a great idea!!

Mummy Dust or how to make a candied pepper: 1 mummy, 1 bell pepper, 1 tablespoon powdered sugar... then blow!

HAha the golden wrap is total dang 😀

Disco styling!

Lol! Your posts never fail to impress! This looks amazing!

So does your Sherlock!

Always looking forward to what you are coming up with. so funny!!

I like the scarf....a little added nuance. ;-)

Thanks, you look like zeus creating a storm!


Used whole wheat flour and a little pepper :



You look like a waterfall!

A wonderful, bearded waterfall!

What kind of powder did you use?

Better than baby powder! LOL!

Speaking of waterfalls and white powder.

it looks like you are raining the powder


If I don't get this mess cleaned up before @essentialoilmom gets out of the shower there won't be any loving on her tonight. 😮


Action shot!


and ...ACTION lol


This experience was worthy of its own article. If this is cheating let me know, click that link and you'll see that I tried oh so hard.

Alex 25 selfie making it rain.jpg
Make it rain….Coffee!

Café - Con Leche!

Ledis selfie 25 con leche.jpg
Powdered milk makes Café con Leche!

Coffee??????? My goodness! 😂

Is that something you like Jyoce? ;p

A tea drinker maybe? I personally drink coffee all day long. It soooo goood. Ooooooo

I love water seriously 😂😂😂

Water is delicious, we are in agreement!

The article is AWESOME and made me want to do the same thing. Hope you don't mind me stealing your idea a bit, fully credited of course. ;-)

Can't believe no one thought about doing that before now. Great idea.

Thanks Stuntworks! I though I aw you light some flour on fire? But creativity is for sharing, I always appreciate the shout out when/if I inspire you ;p

Funny you mention that....I was initially going to blow the flour out over my fire pit and get a little "dust fire." Even asked @papa-pepper about posting a video for proof because I thought it might not look like dust.

But in researching the settings on my new camera to try and stop the motion a little better, I came upon a whole photography culture of powder pictures and thought it was super cool. So I opted for that instead.

Here's the post you inspired me to write brother. Hope I have met the standard brutha. ;-)

You make the standards brother!


Wow. Good shot!

Thank you. I call it: Southern California Dusk with Corn Flour.

Powdered sugar! And it was delicious!!

Ahh, great minds think alike! It was good!

This looks awesome!

Thanks! Just brushed my teeth before the challenge so the sugar was minty fresh!

Lol! Added bonus!

That looks really interesting!

I thought the same thing, something about the way the light is hitting it or something. Almost looks like she's shooting beams of light out or maybe spiderwebs.

Yeah, I thought maybe she just suckef up some spiderwebs!

Hmmmm, Spider-Man is my favorite superhero!


cornmeal from red corn my friend grew on her farm and milled in my mill.... :)

Red! Well done Marianne!

We are growing bofo corn right now which got 22 feet tall :) crazy corn!! :)

What?!?!!? 22 feet tall?

Thats more than the whole pepper family laid end to end!

You are getting one :)

This doesnt even make sense! Do you use a ladder? Ive seen 12 foot tall, but 22....Im speechless - only textual responses! ;p

Imgur here it is in the background. We are letting it dry in place and then taking down the whole stalk to harvest. Since we planted it in the garden space in the existing beds - it was hard to keep it up. Needed to be grown closer together.

Oh my gosh I see someone back there, it really does look like more than 3 people combined!

it might be less than a full 22 feet - but it is tall - and 22 feet is a gooooood story :)

The best corn story I've heard this season! (Hands down!

Aaa sorry @papa-pepper about that had a fishing comp and there was hardly any signal and could not load the image just got home now and pop over to see if there is still a chance , Thank you for a great challenge will join in next time again :(

Looks like you were having more fun than us anyway. If I ever make it out that way, you will have to take me fishing! Thanks for enjoying it while it lasted!

Big Smile any time @papa-pepper do come, here by me is enough space for you and all the peppers for a nice holiday then we go fishing ,it is very beautiful on this side of the world .

Awww that's a good catch @louiscpt! We all see each other on the next season! 😊

Thank you @dearjyoce I had some great catches on the day and cant wait for season two !!

This is from normal face powder

Just to show what happend before the blow.
The this pics is not an entry but to show a clear pics before the blow ( the first entry pics)
@papa-pepper comment so i can pull it off if needs be. Thanks

Nope you can leave it, I understand.

Nestle Quik. The puff is small, but the evidence of many attempts can be seen on the sink...

I used powdered sugar.
After several attempts everything turned white and sweet - my cheeks, my clothes and half of my room :-).
But it was really fun !

Мое фото 195-22222222.jpg

Nestle Quik. Not really that yummy this way...

I used chocolate mix too lol

Lol! I thought I was being all clever but it was really sort of icky straight...

Thanks for your good info.

Plain flour. Yikes

Can't believe this contest still going strong! Best wishes always! - @splendorhub

I'm trying to make it a little more difficult on them, but they are still going strong!

Its getting real intense

I used flour... My lipstick became white.. Lol!

It's hard to capture a perfect powder blowing using my mobile phone but i'm trying to get qualified. Lol


Anyway I used Nestle bear brand Powdered Milk for this challenge.

Powdered Chocolate + Sugar + Infant Milk




What is that?! Is it soap!?

Baby powder by Tupperware

Baby powder! Omg @carrieallen soap would not be one of my choices! 😂

Soap might have tasted better 😂😂😂 one of them flavored soaps

That's gross too! Baby Powder?! Meeeeeh!

You so crazy!

Powdered soap! Not everyhing can be powder Carrie!

Not keys! Powdered keys aren't keys at all!

Okay. Okay. I will have to concede on this one... A Powdered Key would no longer be useful... or a key....

Depends on what you guys mean by the word "key." If you use "key" as a nickname for "kilo" well.......

Powdered kilo's are often worth an awful lot. Just syain'

Yes. Yes. You are true. 😎
