    In the spirit of the upcoming Halloween season, please prepare yourselves for the second annual UO:R Costume Contest. Time to get those creative juices flowing!

    How to Enter
    It's simple. Put on your best costume and submit a screenshot showing your toon both from an aerial perspective and also his/her paperdoll. It might also be helpful to state what your costume represents. There is no central theme for the competition, so feel free to incorporate whatever level of creativity you desire. French maid? Great. Drag queen? Sure. Want to find an ordinary tribal mask with a grey half-apron and go as Chris? Fantastic.

    Entries are limited to one toon per person and Photoshop will not be allowed. Any additional submissions are welcome for our viewing pleasure, but only your first submission will count toward the competition. I probably don't need to explicitly state this, but keep in mind this is about being creative with your costume, not about rolling up in the most expensive/rarest collection of items on the shard.

    For some great example ideas, refer to our top three winners from the 2016 contest below. Note that last year's thread can be found here.

    2016 1st Place

    @ReZon - Ghost Rider

    Scoring
    The entry window for submissions will open Oct 1st at midnight CST and will close on Oct 30th at midnight CST (10:00pm PST / 1:00am EST).

    In an effort to keep the voting process as independent as possible, I will identify a panel of judges (likely GMs/staff/counselors) who will submit their top 3 favorite contests in order (1st place, 2nd, 3rd, etc). I will tally up the results via spreadsheet and will post the final scores to determine winners.


    Will there be prizes?
    Of course there will be prizes. I will commit to contribute gold and/or plat from my personal stash, but am certainly encouraging/accepting donations from any interested parties. Feel free to PM me if you would like to help out -- I will be sure to give you credit once the prize pool begins to crystallize. Preliminarily I am anticipating that the top 3 will receive prizes. It will be worth your time, but more importantly let's have fun with this!

    Thanks to continued support from our staff, we have received the following prizes: customized trophies and Halloween themed body sashes for the top three finishers, in addition to surfer trophies for ALL participants.

    That hue 42 sash will look perfect on my Halloween character!! Do the sashes come blessed or do you need to pop a CBD on them?

    Daniel San needed more than just an outfit, Daniel San needed a competition.

    I do think I've ever been more wrecked, Daniel San probably held red team back.
    *But catching Ivos in that nook and waxing her in place was a highlight. Daniel San didn't even require the flag in hand to become a glowing target and he did make an amazing lure. Well fought to the Blue team that day.


    -----------
    I look forward to more contestants entering this event, put one together!
