1) How many Judges?
2)Is it gonna be a theme based contest. (You'll give out themes and the costumes must be made based on it)
3)Will there be rewards?

Sage

I can be a judge until the contest is over, I guess...

I'm already a judge for the captions contest so I might be a bit limited on saturdays.

1) How many Judges?

probably about 3 or 4

2)Is it gonna be a theme based contest. (You'll give out themes and the costumes must be made based on it)

Yeah, I'll think of the theme soon.

3)Will there be rewards?

Yes.

Cool, what kinds of rewards?
(Still not sure if to be judge or participant, so i need to know the basics first.)

If I have "Give out XP" by the time the contest starts, it will be XP. Probably about 300XP for #1, 150XP for #2, and 50XP for #3. If not, I will give stickers.

I know I am fairly new to LBPC, but I would really like to be a judge if there is a spot available. :)

*EDIT* And I can be a judge for as long as you need me to be.

Okay, added to first post.
We have enough judges, but more would be great.

So we have some time before the contest starts...

Fair enough.

I do have a question though. Can we make more than one costume?

You still haven't given a theme or a deadline...:kz:

Yeah, I forgot to put that you can make up to 2 costumes per user each round.

You still haven't given a theme or a deadline...:kz:

That's because the contest hasn't started yet... And I do have a deadline planned. 7-1-09 through 7-6-09.

How are you going to judge this? By how close to the theme it follows? By coolness? Or would it be like a comparison contest, like, say, "Make you sackboy resemble Sylvester Stallone"? Just wonderin', since this already has me interested. :p

Round one has begun!!!
The theme for this week will be: BILLY MAYS
In memory of him ;(

Good luck everybody!!!

crazymario
07-01-2009, 03:13 PM
Looks like I'm out xD
I was expecting a more flexible theme. Sure his death is sad, but I'm just not that great at making people into sackboys =/

Rustbukkit
07-01-2009, 04:55 PM
Hmmm... Billy again, yeah... I'm out too.

tjb0607
07-01-2009, 09:30 PM
Okay, since everyone's quitting, I'll change the theme...
...
Indiana Jones!!!
I don't know...

EDIT: Just thought of a great idea!
ModNation Racers!!!
Can be any costume shown on the E3 Video.
GOOD LUCK!!!

The monkey costume seems very easy - they released a free monkey costume on PSN a while back.

Hmm... making a costume of a game where you make custom characters?
A bit odd...
Meh, i'll see what i can come up with.

BTW, what do you mean by 7-8-09? Becuase that's actually the 7th of August. Don't use short dates.

Where do the contestants enter their costumes? Will there be a new thread? Oh I just noticed Sage would be the only judge this round--

They can just put their entries here in this thread.
What do you mean Sage would be the only judge? Are you gone on the 8th? I'm extending the competition to the 10th because I didn't have a good theme for a couple days.

Sage
07-06-2009, 06:34 PM
I think he means he just noticed that i'm a judge only for this round.

tjb0607
07-06-2009, 08:19 PM
Oh, sorry. I just misread it. :P

Also, FrinkleBumper sent a PM to me with his costume, but didn't put it in this thread.
Here it is:

I am available for judging anytime, anywhere :) I was just saying, as Sage noted, that he would be the official judge for this round

Wtf??? Where are all the entries?!? I was expecting something to judge by now...
Should I bump this contest another week or what?

GrahamLif3
07-10-2009, 08:11 PM
Come on guys! We know you are all creative and unless you want Frinkle to take all the Xp show us what you got! Unfortunately this contest doesn't have enough reputation like some of the other contests that have been going on for 4 or more times :/ I'll ask some people to contribute some great costumes ;)

Frinklebumper
07-14-2009, 07:40 PM
Sorry that I couldn't post it in the thread. I had to leave home for a week :(

I'd be fine taking all the XP.... haha just kidding :p

ARD
07-14-2009, 07:54 PM
I think it's a bad idea to post the costumes before the judging.
I was going to enter this, but Frinklebumper's costume was the one I was going to make, thus, I didn't.
If all the costumes were kept secret until judging was over then maybe you would get a better response, if not, it's first come, first serve.
Or at least it was this time round. After all, there are only a few pics to work with, and monkey butler is probably the easiest to do in LBP.

Silverleon

Wait, wasn't the deadline like 13 days ago?
So is this forgotten contest or something?

Morgana25
07-23-2009, 10:48 PM
I think it's a bit hard to do costumes for a game that hasn't released yet. I know there are vids and some screen shots but I wouldn't even know where to begin.

Exactly, not to mention it was to make customes of "custom" characters...
Srry TJB, but i gotta say this...

I told you so! :p

Travel back in time to before the deadline and before the contest died and you should be able to enter. :p
No but seriously, you should check the dates before posting m8.
This contest was long over and no participants, so never really went through.

Burnvictim42
07-28-2009, 01:41 AM
well maybe someone should revive this/make a new contest?

jwwphotos
07-28-2009, 02:25 AM
Yeah.. possibly similar to the character contest where you pick a theme like animals, superheroes, or monsters? In other words something a bit more general than a particular movie or video game character.

Just a thought..
