[Event] Wakfu Interserver Fashion Contest! Submissions Received until 12/05/2017!****

By NewHook - MEMBER - October 26, 2017, 00:15:54


As all of us know, aesthetics is 90% the fun in Wakfu. Therefore, we will be hosting a contest across the Nox, Phaeris, and Remington servers to see who among all of us is the most fashionably talented.

Of course, the winner of this contest will be awarded with fame, prestige, and actual material prizes! Be a part of a live stream of multiple people showing off their best outfits. Get judged on your character, and aim to be the most fashionable among everyone across the servers!

How to enter:

To enter a submission, take a screenshot of your character in your best looking gear combination. Take advantage of your class, their base colors, and what gear matches best. Once you have the perfect screenshot, email it to [email protected] where we will email you a reply to confirm that we have received your submission. You’re free to include your character name and server and guild if you want a shout out.

The reason for the email, is to prevent other people from stealing your cool look. 

Submissions will be received until 12/05/2017***, so you have plenty of time to get ready!

What next?:

After all the submissions have been received, we’ll process the submissions. Once the submissions are processed, on 12/07/2017 at 5:00pm EST, we will hold a stream on Twitch to judge, categorize, and select the winner from the submissions received. People watching the stream will have a hand in picking the final winners, so it’ll be a good idea to watch and see everyone’s submissions!

The stream will be found in: https://go.twitch.tv/noxhooks

On the stream, we will judge which submissions are potential winners and which are not. At the end of viewing all of the submissions, the ones who are potential winners will be put on a strawpoll for the stream to decide. That's right, the final winner will not be chosen by the judges, but by the viewers themselves, so definitely don't miss out!

Rules:
  • No Method Wakfu Builders links. Only screenshots from ingame or character selection screens allowed.
  • Relic Auras will NOT be considered a factor. Even if it looks amazing. There’s currently no way to mimisymbic relic auras, so we won’t include that as a factor yet.
  • Pets will NOT be considered a factor for above stated reasons.
  • Mounts will NOT be considered a factor for above stated reasons.
  • Character Models (Class/Colors/Clothes) WILL be considered a factor. As we all know, an Ecaflip with a Clint looks much better than a Sadida with a Clint, it's all about making the outfit work for this character.
  • Emotes are allowed, as long as it's not excessive. (Example: Brandish Big Sword or Say Goodbye emote OK. Eliotrope/Cra Emote: Not okay.)
  • Lighting is important! Find a balance that makes your character look good. Don't hide your submissions, but don't blind us either.
  • Any direction is fine, get your character's good side.
  • One submission per person.
  • Updating submissions IS allowed. Just make sure you're emailing from the same email.
  • Alts are allowed if you deem your main to be fashionably challenged.
  • Mimisymbics/Costumes/All Gear is allowed.
  • You are allowed to have blank equipment slots. Meaning you can have cape, shoulders, boots, breastplate, but no hat.
  • This contest is open to Nox/Phaeris/Remington, as the merge will happen and the prizes can be traded to them on the Nox server in the future and have alts made to accept the prizes immediately if the winner wishes.
  • (Submissions from Elbor and other servers are welcome, but please note that we can't really reward you unless you move to Nox/Remi/Phaeris)

Okay, so I followed the rules, what are the prizes?:

The Grand Prize for the winner is: 3,000,000 Kamas,  5 Mimisymbics, and a Sex and Appearance Change Potion awarded in the NOX server. This ensures that the most fashionable can show off their fashion sense for months to come.

For Remington and Phaeris: once the merge happens, you'll be able to simply move the items from one character to another.

Additional prizes will be awared depending on how many people submit a submission as well as how good there are. Prizes will include costumes, cash, and other vanity items.

Questions or Suggestions? Email or ask below in the thread!

Edit: Added suggestions from other players into the contest for more fairness and less possibilities for bias. Extended the submission time at the request of some players.

Extra Edit: Ankama has FINALLY released the Invisible set! https://www.wakfu.com/en/mmorpg/shop/3-items/9567-invisible-set The event has been pushed back for players to alter their costumes. You may now omit to wear certain equipment slots since you can make them invisible!

Great question. Ecaflipus' bright lights would be the best so the judges/audience would be able to take in 100% of the submission, while dark areas would hide your submission.

The brighter the better, but if you take a screenshot in a sunny Nation fields during the daytime, that's no problem. Your submission would likely lose points and not be accepted as a winner if you submit a pitch black image where we can barely see the character.

Updated thread, tweaked some rules and added less potential bias and more audience inclusion. Extended time for submissions at the request of players.

Just one single winner for the entire cosmetic contest?

Surely it isn't fair for all cosmetic categories to compete in the same arena.
Some example from past cosmetic threads:     Stylist    FashionPolice



mimicing/cosplay







Absurdity







Original







Costume



The relic guy alone deserves his own award, what's your judging criteria for a single winner?

>What's your judging criteria for a single winner?

Do you look good? If so, into the winners circle you go.

And, as posted in the original thread:

  • On the stream, we will judge which submissions are potential winners and which are not. At the end of viewing all of the submissions, the ones who are potential winners will be put on a strawpoll for the stream to decide. That's right, the final winner will not be chosen by the judges, but by the viewers themselves, so definitely don't miss out!

If you'd like to see a mimicing/cosplaying contest, I'd consider hosting one. That being said, as stated in the original post:
  • Additional prizes will be awarded depending on how many people submit a submission as well as how good there are. Prizes will include costumes, cash, and other vanity items.

If you have any other questions or concerns, do let me know.
