Costume Contest anyone?

Now that Paragon Chat is up, Costume Contests are just a small step away. Hooray!

But, as influence is not available as a price, I was wondering if people would be interested in winning art instead?

This means you can win, for example, a portrait or sketch or full collored (depending on the participating artists) of a City of Titans (to be) character (which obviously can also be your current City of Heroes character or someone elses or a npc, your choice as long as it's within the artist's power to make it happen).

It will take some preperations to connect with artists willing to donate, but I'm willing to put in the effort.

Please let me know in a reply to this post if you'ld would consider entering the contest, or if you'ld be willing to donate art.

Just to show you, how awesome this can be, I'll put up a few examples of art that was won through a contest in City of Heroes, back when it was up and running. The link leads you to a Deviant Art page with more examples.

I never won anything in a costume contest, though the first one I ever participated in did have a couple of lady bystanders come along and stuff Influence into Perfect Perry's waistband. They said he reminded them of a ' Solid Gold' dancer, then muttered that I probably didn't know what that was. I laughed out loud, thanked them for the tips, and told them that I Did Indeed remember 'Solid Gold'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_Gold_%28TV_series%29

Maybe I'll show up at your costume contest as Perfect Perry? He probably wouldn't win a chance for you to draw him again, but some little old ladies might give him more tips! *grin*

Be Well!

Lots better than bringing my very best costume to a Costume Contest, standing around for Hours, only to have the 'win' go to a nearly naked chick named 'Backdoor Barbie'.

The stories can be the best part of the game, though. Ascendant, Sister Flame, Taxi Bots, these are our Legends.

Be Well!

Oh man, that's bad! That

Oh man, that's bad! That should not be acceptable in a costume contest. It should be about costumes.. not skin afterall .

Yes, indeed. Exactly.

I think a costume contest

I think a costume contest would be cool. I have some great ideas for costumes for character I want to make for City of Titans. I only hope I can make them CLOSE to what I picture in my mind.

I accidently ate a bowl of radioactive soup....ok I guess that makes me a Soup-er Hero
