    Default 2017 DDO Fashion Competition

    2017 DDO Fashion Competition


    Please show off your snazziest, most awesome, most fashionable DDO characters and come strut your stuff in screenshots.

    Starting Tuesday, June 6th I will be accepting submissions for a Fashion Competition here on the DDO forums. The deadline for submissions is Friday July 7th. Barring an enormous number of submissions I hope to have the competition judged and sorted by the following Monday, July 10th.

    The categories for submission are : Male Humanoid, Female Humanoid, Bladeforged/Warforged, and Dragonborn.
    Humanoid refers to any and all races not Bladeforged, Warforged, or Dragonborn.

    Please submit, here in this thread, screenshots of your best, most fashionable character in these categories.
    One submission per category per poster, so no one can submit multiple dragonborn but one poster may submit a bladeforged, a dragonborn, a female elf and a male dwarf for instance.
    You need only make one submission to one category to enter, you do not have to have entries for every category. Please only post your submissions to this thread, I will not be accepting submissions in Private Message. If I receive any entries by PM I will only redirect you to post within the thread because I think it is only fair for everyone to see every entry.

    If you do intend to apply to more than one category please try to post all images within the same post or keep your posts very close together. You may only win once. That is if your account wins Most Fashionable Dragonborn you cannot also win Most Fashionable Female (insert winner's race.) Myself and my family will not be competing, that would not be fair. For image posting purposes I like http://imgur.com/ but any site that works for you is fine.

    Submissions will be judged on five criteria.

    • Color cohesiveness. (For instance someone with similar or complimentary colors would receive more points than someone with contrasting colors, e.g. sage hair with green armor would get a higher score than hot pink hair with green armor.)
    • Accessorizing. (Do your weapons/shield/goggles or helm/hairstyle match and/or improve your look?)
    • Background appeal. (Example, if the character is trying for a Gothic theme wearing Bloodplate for instance and they took the screenshot in front of an evil statue with blood all over it in the Necropolis they would score higher than the same armor on a sunny Three barrel Cove beach.)
    • Pose. (Because all models pose.) For a list of options try /emotelist in general chat.
    • Adherence to a theme. (Gothic, steampunk, elven elegance etc. This would be an overall grade.)


    Example image, Male Dwarf Pirate Theme

    Please with each entry you submit also include your theme. It may be obvious but please include it anyway. You may need to identify your submission as male/female if your character's face is covered by a helm and the pose makes gender difficult to discern.

    Named, random generated, cosmetics, rags... anything goes so long as the character isn't in their underwear. This is not a lingerie competition.

    The winner of each category will receive a Mirror of Glamering (you may only win once,) generously provided by SSG.

    After judging, I will post the winners as well as the Runners Up to the end of the thread.

    Female Humanoid. Resting in the shadow of dusk after a long day exploring & clearing the Wilderness. Sporting a limited-edition Lolth-inspired party gown...





    ----------------------------

    Dragonborn. The necklace - it's not too much, is it?





    --------------------

    Male Humanoid: Now watch me pull a rabbit out of this chest...



    --------------------

    Warforged: Pillows, a veteran of the Pink-Baning of armor & docents years ago grumpily converted her wardrobe to yellow. Seen here sporting rare symmetrical armor plates over yellow-enameled adamantine. Knowledgeable patrons will also recognize a +Sir Lawrence™ original Lucky Hat adorning her skull plating.



    --------------------

    Not an entry: Gotta get a good shot for the fashion show. I'll just set the camera up here and... *click* ...oh, darn it. (Admit it, we've all done it...)

    Anything but undies, so long as you create a cohesive theme with your character's appearance. Cosmetics won't give you an advantage necessarily, there are many awesome armors out there and more than a few are better looking than some/most cosmetics. The only immediate advantage to any cosmetic is a cosmetic hair color to match your armor if you haven't found the perfect helm or goggles yet. On the other hand if your hair already looks good with your ideal "look" than there's no advantage to that either.

    This is about having fun and rocking your style in the ideal setting. But please no lingerie in the Sign of the Rose Bordello, thank you.

    I think people should also write some nice cheese catwalk-style text. Here is a silly example:

    "Johnny john sits enjoying his view of the harbor, making passersby awed by his stunning skull hat, matching leggins & moustache. That dwarven axe radiates with a charming dark hue reminescent of stolen moonlight walks--and dressed like that, he will never be lacking company"

    Default Keezer the Fire Breather

    Toon was built around the Draconic ED and Fire Breath attack. The build is a Sun Elf Fiend Warlock. The outfit is glamored to match Keezer the Fire Breather and the weapon is real for the burning torch effect (not sure if that particular torch can be glamored or not).

    The look and the wind up:


    Fire!

    Male Humanoid. Gonari & his miniature magma fiendling dance with, and in, fire.



    Also, my druid is sad that there isn't an "animal" category *g*

    Default Druids, animal companions and pets...

    As far as druids, animal companions and pets go... I'm sorry there just isn't enough variety to make the animals their own category just yet. Yes you can change the color of your arty dog's docent, maybe have it on fire or smoking, but other than that there isn't much difference so it would be more of a whomever first posted thing which isn't very fair.

    In conclusion we NEED more styles, colors, and cosmetics for our druids, animal companions and pets. Yes, that is the only viable conclusion.
