So a week ago an "official contest" was approved for designing a new costume just for kicks. Here is the original post:
To summarize we would told to be creative and that this was an "artist style" competition. I don't know about anybody else but the three winners in this morning's post did not do anything "artistic". Here is said post:
In 1st place we have the Nimble Foot with a 15 second Paint application mustache (Please note that the winner is the person who judged who won)
In 2nd place we have Purple Splash with a 15 second Paint application triangle
in 3rd place we have a picture with no alterations just posted in as an entry (Please note that this user is in the person who judged guild)
Now if there is a later post saying that these 3 winners were a prank let me line up and say that I completely fell for it.
If these are in fact the winners then this was a bunch of bogus.
Did I want to win? Yes. Do I think that mine is better than all 3 of the selected winners? Yes. Am I biased towards liking my own creation? Possibly. However, had I been the person to select who won and was exempt from voting from my own none of the three winners would have been selected, and I would like to think that I can't be the only person who feels this way.
To be frank I am looking forward to getting responses back from everyone on their thoughts about this "contest" both from other entrants and from the contest judge.
