Foreword:

So, after careful consideration, I have decided to revamp this contest a second time. As the pickings are low, even so close to the deadline (which is heartbreaking, as the contest started in April), I can't really consider the would-be victors as winners when there wasn't truly a contest.

Given the nature of this contest and the fact some of my watchers have shared their artistic self-consciousness with me, I have devised a new method for submissions to support inclusivity in this contest.

In addition, I will be producing "action templates" in the near-future for participants to showcase the practicality of their primary outfit and weapon designs, if they choose.

I hope to garner a larger crowd with this revision and I hope to see new submissions soon.

Deadline: Saturday, October 31st, 2015 at 11:59PM EST

Objective:

Design any or all of the following for any or all of the given characters:

  • A primary outfit
  • A bonus outfit
  • A weapon, according to given parameters

Template Catalogue:

Action Templates coming soon...


Rules:

  1. To "register" as a participant, create a journal containing a link to this journal. You must also tag me, NaijMizuho in said journal. In other words, create an awareness journal.
  2. Create a submissions journal containing links to your past and future entries. Journal link and tag are optional. In order to be judged fairly, it is advised that you group your submissions according to character and by division. Providing headers for each will help (i.e. "Braun Arc - Primary Outfit").
  3. Provide a link to both of your journals in this journal's comments.
  4. Tag me, NaijMizuho in the description of your submissions.
  5. Provide a link to this journal in the description of your submissions.
  6. While optional, it is advised that you provide an explanation, in other words, a rundown, of your submission. This primarily applies to combat attire and weaponry, but it may help your case in bonus outfits as well. Perhaps if you explain your reasoning to me, you might win me over.

Depending on the rule, the submission or participant will be overlooked in judging if they do not comply.


Valid Contest Submissions

In order for your submission to be considered for judging, you may draw an art piece, with or without use of the templates, digitally or traditionally. You may also, if I dare say, provide me a textual description of the outfit. Only disadvantage here is that you run the risk of misinterpretation on my end. Similar rules apply to weapons.

Please note, If you lack a means of colouring, you may share the colour scheme with me in the description or leave it to me to come up with a colour scheme. Coloured, colourless, and textual entries will be judged equally.


Notes:

Apricot Peach

Before you ask, yes, she will eventually become the merely mentioned Professor Peach. Her primary colour is pink. A vigilant reader of Flora, Apricot keeps a close eye on current fashion trends. Definitely look up modern women's fashion for inspiration. She uses a pair of SMG bucklers, small shields with built-in submachine guns. For close quarters combat, they are equipped with retractable blades.

Veronica Mars

Her primary colour is purple. While an avid soccer enthusiast, she also keeps up with modern fashion trends. For combat, she uses a pair of jet boots. They can either be attachments or the complete boot, that is up to you.

Ivory Nocturne

Her primary colour is white. Stoic and quiet, Ivory prefers to draw in her sketchbook or work on a painting if she has the chance. Despite that, she won't shy away from her friends to pursue her art. Her fashion sense is also modern, but you'll have to take into account her pre-determined black beret. Her weapon is a brush wand, complete with an accompanying palette.

Braun Arc

While his name is derived from brown, it does not necessarily mean his primary colour is brown. The team leader of Team BBLU, Braun is a brave and chivalrous young man. Naturally strong, he sports a dust augmented zweihander into battle. It can swap out dust elements on the drop of a dime through a handy mechanism near or on the hilt. Don't make a buster sword, as this thing is closer to realistic greatswords. I advise looking into the swords used in Game of Thrones for beheadings.

Bronz Volt

Like his friend, Braun, Bronz does not prominently wear his namesake colour, bronze. His name also doesn't refer to the type of medals he receives in track and field, as Bronz's semblance is super speed. He prefers athletic clothing, wearing stuff that will withstand and support his fighting style: running around punching and kicking things. He is equipped with lightning dust infused gloves.
