Yes, everything needs to be grayscale. (If a costume piece has gold buttons you can't change that is okay - but it needs to be 98%+ grayscale)

The skin does not need to be grayscale. Some judges run with cell shader and some don't. I wouldn't be able to speak to everyone's graphics settings. We usually try to do an AM/PM light setting on each shard.

How long do these normally last? I've never done a CC before and I have a costume that I think fits the theme well, but I couldn't stay much past 5:30 or so.

Depends on the turn out.  Back in the days of Yore (ie:  Last year, during the population lull), the turn outs were less than 20 people sometimes.  THOSE contests flew by quickly!

The last two?  Hoo-geez!  I can't speak for other Shards, but there were so many people on Everlasting that it took quite a while to get to the winner announcement, and that was with the two GMs moving at a very brisk pace as they glanced at the various contestants.

Out of curiosity, what settings are y'all running on? I assume high/ultra, but just to be sure.

Most are on High/Ultra. They can run anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending on the people that show up. We want to make sure to give every costume a fair shot. 🙂

We aren't going to do that this time, but we are open to different options in the future. We will let you know! 😄

Just to clarify.  The costume GM_Miss has in the video at the end would not qualify because it has purple.  Correct?

Based solely on the turnouts on Everlasting, and the duration of the contests, I don't think the GMs have enough time to read character descriptions.  Although, it certainly wouldn't hurt your chances any.

On Excelsior they lined the Plaza from the pergola all the way to the buidling.
