Have a question or suggestion? Leave a comment and I will update the information as needed.

 

Spoiler

What do you mean by the theme "Ever After?"

It's up to you how to interpret it. Could this mean living

happily ever after as in marriage? A reference to the undead

enduring forever in the afterlife. Whatever happened after the fire?

All three? The aftermath of some momentous occasion like

the Rikti invasion? Something else entirely?

------

A quick note about the prizes: Obviously I am behind on making them.

Much of my drawing time three weeks ago went to my nephew who

implored me to "DRAW DINOORSAURS!" It was his (virtual)

birthday so I was honor bound by creed. 07K1tHnz_o.png Last week I

got early access to the single dose J&J shot & I took it.

It wasn't in my drawing arm but some mild soreness put a

temporary halt to my drawing anyway. I plan to catch up soon

though and will continue to run the contest. I have messaged those

still waiting and my thanks to them and everyone else for your patience.

------

Can I make changes to my costume after I post it?

Sure! Whatever's there when the deadline rolls

around will be considered your final entry.

------

What about backstories?

Not required and not a factor in picking a winner

but I'm happy to read them so have at it.

------

The costume creator changes some of the colors a bit when I...?

This can't really be avoided so a certain amount of "close enough"

is fine just try your best to stick to the above colors.

------

Skin color?

You may pick any color you wish from the skin color palette

and use it anywhere the CC considers skin whether

that's fur on a wolf metal plating on a robot etc.

------

Can I use more colors than the ones above?

Try to keep it to just the ones above as best you can

to increase your chances of winning a prize.

------

What if you run out of contestants?

I will try and keep the challenge going for as long as there

are a goodly number of entrants and people are having fun with it.

Afterwords I'll most likely come up with a new way to spread the art around.

------

How many times can I enter?

Just one entry per person for now.

------

What if I don't win this week?

Thanks for trying and no worries, as long as the

color challenge is running you will have more chances to win.

------

What kind of prize artz we talkin' bout here?

Something along the lines of...

 

DzhWN181_o.jpg  dCwI86vv_o.png  93CsewAH_o.jpg  <---- click on thumbnails for bigger versions.

------

Where did you get this daft idea?

Short answer is Sythspawn by way of @Greycat

and @Oubliette_Red. See this thread here for more details.

 

Also seeing a stray remark I made, about the difficulty of working "bio" into

a decent look in the Best Costumes thread, inadvertently kick

off the "Bio Armor Challenge" got me thinking.

Edit: Realized that the first submission was trying too hard to give equal screen time to all 4 colours, which in hindsight was a mistake (for me).

 

Well, gotta say I was beyond stunned that the name Shock Value was available on Everlasting. It was meant to be!

 

Rolled this guy as an Elec/Kin Controller a Stone/Regen Brute (cuz I forgot how terrible I am at controllering). Backstory is barely there (it's only been an hour, whaddaya want? 🙂). Went with Tech origin, so between that and the textures I used it's likely to involve some sort of traumatic event that required extensive bodily rebuilding. (Also the guy might have some issues, as evidenced by his decision to retain what was left of his skull...)

Question for ya @Christopher Robin: Are we allowed to edit our posts? Cause seeing things in the costume creator doesn't always work as well out in the "real world". And of course there's the ever-present neeeeed to tinker and tweak.

Oooh, I love these sorts of things!

 

I've got a few ideas starting to develop into proper costume squirrels and maybe even a plot bunny or two!

Cutter those are solid improvements mate! CR didn't say anything about bio's but I love a good backstory either way.

Thanks! The bio just came to me while I was tinkering. And it definitely needed the improvements - some high bars set & I'm expecting/hoping to see more.

Great creations guys 😍

CR is going to have a tough time picking the winner!

 

 

kYftkbzZ_o.gif It begins! Orange will rayne... err rain, nope that's the watery one, errr... reign supreme! Nailed it.

 

It's too late to add a color for this round but if the number of people who've posted thus far all

post an entry I would certainly be up for another round of this. Also pink is awesome. bdD2kT31_o.gif

 

Indeed!

No worries Icanav I'm not requiring backstories. Nor will I take them into consideration for

determining the winner but I will happily read and enjoy them. Spoiler box updated. zb7XgP0P_o.png

I decided to use Bunnie Bombshell for this contest and took "shock value" in a bit of a different direction. 😉

Well, I had a character who should, frankly, have been using those colors anyway... All right, I had to tone her down a little. (And brighten her up, here and there.) Presenting one Faster Firefly. (Granted, when playing her and flying around, all you see is a fireball from the regular camera position, but ...)

I'm required to post here because that scheme is literally Realgar's existing outfit 😂

He's a fire/storm cross foxboy that was *supposed* to be a plot NPC that somehow wormed his way into PC status

Welcome @Psychopithicus to the best part of the forums.

I had to laugh at her radiation bombing the statue.

Hope that's not DD's apartment. 07K1tHnz_o.png

 

Welcome new entrants and for those watching and on the fence there are still

3 days left to come up with costume to fit the theme and colors above. Good Luck!
