THANKS ALL WE DID IT! - The First Excelsior Runway Fashion Galore!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

¿Are you tired of meek costume contests that look like military roll calls?.
¿Does it get you down when asked to turn off your bling and hold back your larger than life personality?.
¿All that time spent on polishing your bio to pump your costume up seems like a waste?.

¿Ever had the feeling the winner was decided just by a standard look from the get go?

¡Well then rejoice because this Saturday June 6th in Khallisty Wharf, at 4 PM Central Daylight Time/5 PM Eastern Daylight Time, the First ever Excelsior shard Runway Fashion Galore is about to blow it all!

Featuring:

- Registration by name, so no one can jump over your spot or slide in midway! (We will provide a reasonable time window to register however.)

- A panel of five strong willed, costume-design-loving judges, with different views and tastes, backed by an accurate and balanced percentages system to ensure everyone has a fair chance to reach for the stars!.

- Free motif theme for all, go crazy and bring what you want!

- OVER FIVE BILLIONS IN PRIZES!!!, First Place prize of 1.5 billions, followed by 1 billion to Second Place, 500 millions for Third Place, 300 millions for Best Performance, 300 millions for Best Bio, 300 millions for the Audience Favorite, a Judges Personal Choice prize consisting on 200 millions from each judge and a prize of 150 millions to the Top Forerunner in the first elimination round!

- Rounds to check out hero's Biographies and Costumes, parameters like raw design skill, style, inventive, originality, dare, depth, fun factor and more will be taken on account, everyone's strong points can shine!

- Performance Stage, you gotta walk the runway! , toggle on all your auras, use your powers, pose, dance, amaze us and earn extra points towards the final; those with stage fright, fear not, a certain judge has a soft spot for the shy and may provide good scores :classic_wink:, break out of your shell!



We are a small bunch of crazy dreamers that on a whim decided to pull this through, no group backs this and no affiliation or influences will lean our goal of having a clean competition, a fashion fest and the best of times, so come join us and help us spread out the news!

We want to thanks everyone for all the support and interest, and announce that because the official Homecoming costume contest will be conducted on all shards on the same date, hour and place we had set, we will postpone for now our event, worry not however, we will announce the new date soon, and will make several improvements, and even rise the prize pools! Take the extra time to work harder on your amazing costumes and prepare your performances, see you soon!!!

The only complaint I think anybody had was the running time. Perhaps for next time you could have each judge on your panel critique costumes by themselves, and then compare/combine your scores together. Have the judges line up and players go down the line to be looked at by each judge in line, so that way it feels a little less like everybody is just standing around waiting for their turn.


Other than that, it was a ton of fun, and I'm glad you guys put in the time and effort to make it possible. Definitely looking forward to any possible future contests. 😄

I feel like biographies should be scored separately from the costume and maybe have separate prizes if possible. I've seen some good biographies but didn't win anything outside of 20 million at least.

Indeed time was an issue, fortunately most contestants were cool about it, being a new system it took us a while to put it in actual practice, but yes the idea is just as you suggested, each of us gave a score to each costume and that was then calculated for a total score that allowed contestants to go to the next stage or get one of the many specific prizes, for the second edition we will have it more polished, may as well take down one stage without compromising the fairness of the judgement process, thanks for the input!

We were so excited about the contest and so focused on applying the new system properly we totally forgot about pics... :classic_unsure: for the next edition we are already booking photographers!

They were!, and there was a dedicated prize of 300 millions for the best bio, it was a tough call, there were so many amazing bios and the judges panel were at each other throats, it was not an entirely full agreement in the end but majority won fairly.

Edit: We thought about a first,second and third place prizes for bios, but it was a bit over the budget we had, the prize pool came out of our personal funds and we decided to push it a bit further in the end so everyone got at least a little cash for their efforts, plus we duplicated the third prize because of a tie, we ended up going up to 5.8 billions, next day we didnt have enough to change back our own costumes :P, absolutely worth it though.

Well..   The best bio actually was a reward...   and additionally - everyone was eventually judged with their bio being a big consideration, so - this was certainly a 'bio respectful' contest, IMO.
