Hello everyone! We will be holding design contests for the 2019 Fall Festival, due to launch at the end of October!

Please make sure to read the rules carefully!

1. Design an Avatar Outfit for the Fall Festival. Please use the following bases to draw your avatar items on.

Male Avatar Base

Female Avatar Base

The following can be included all in one entry for avatars:

1 Avatar Outfit
1 Avatar Wings
1 Avatar Back Item
1 Avatar Held Item
1 Avatar Head Item

2. You must draw the items on the avatar base. In case your drawing skills aren't great then along with your drawing you can include a description to better help us envision your avatar items. If you are unable to draw something, then I am sorry, there will be no exceptions.

3. Avatar Items submitted must be Fall Themed. So anything to do with the Fall season, this includes any holidays that occur in the Fall season, Fall weather etc.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post I will delete your post.

5. Please do not Ping me with your submission. Please only Ping me if you have a question.

6. Before submitting your entry please make sure to scan the thread to see if someone else has done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do...then I highly suggest you pick something different. If you feel someone has "copied" your design, do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread.

7. You may only submit ONE official entry. If you wish to submit more then you can send me a PM with drawings of your avatar item ideas. However all PMed entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes.

8. The end date is September 22nd at 11:59 PM server, after that there is no guarantee that we will see your entry and the thread will be locked once designs are picked.

Important Notes

I am very aware that it's typical to use google to search for ideas when designing things. However, it is extremely important that if someone happens to be referencing another person's artwork, it should not be possible to google it and find exactly what was used as reference. Please make sure to change it enough and be creative enough that you're making it your own design. This is extremely important not just for ethical reasons but also for legal reasons when we're implementing something onto our site. Thank you! =)

Don't comment on someone's entry unless you have something nice to say. If someone copies your entry then have faith in us that we will determine the correct winner. Please do not fight over entries, if I see anyone doing this in the thread then whoever is fighting will be disqualified.


All entries that are picked will have their avatar items created and be given one free copy of the submitted items. Everyone that participates will also receive a participation prize.

May I present the:

'Sophisticated Sylestian's Attire'
(yes, the quotation marks are intentional)

First off, I must give credit where credit is due. This glorious... abomination came about when I posted a picture of double monocles in Gen Chat, then Lostwords13, Krinadon, and myself had a lovely conversation about them which resulted in ideas for an avatar item design entry!

Avatar Outfit: 'Sophisticated Sylestian's Attire'- So, for the outfit, the sophisticated Sylestian will be dawning the ever tasteful Suit t-shirt. The pants are a little fancier, complete with two pocket watches, one in each pocket. The shoes are my sad attempt at drawing wing tips! XD

Avatar Back Item Regal Ryori- This was my own idea. Ryori are one of my favourite Sylesties, and this one happens to be putting on a monocle of it's own! Getting ready to match it's owner for a night on the town!

Avatar Held Item: Snooty Puffadore Companion- How can one be regal without the ever (sometimes)faithful Puffadore by one's side! Inspired by Lostwords13's suggestion to have a Snooty Puff as the avatar held item, our Puff comes complete with top hat and little bow tie. He/she can't seem to decide if it wants what their owner is offering, which happens to be caviar! XD

Avatar Head Item: Double Monocle/Top hat- This head item has the avatar donning a double monocle, and double top hat. The idea for the double top hat came from Krinadon, when he commented that if there is a double monocle, then why not a double top hat just like the Sylestia Snowman. For those of you that do not know, when making a Snowman in the Winter Festival, it requires two top hats!

This was all done in MS Paint, so that was fun to draw free hand with a mouse! XD I left the Ryori and Puff largely uncoloured as I did not want the images to become harder to see the lines I drew. I figured various colours and traits/mutations could be used on them.

I really look forward to seeing what everyone else does! :D

Edit: I'm replacing my entry with a completely different idea I got after posting the other one.

"Storybook Royalty" is the name I came up with, but it's not very creative.
The set was inspired by king and queen costumes, which I though was appropriate for fall and Halloween as this is a common Halloween costume, with a bit of fairy tale. Villainous queens are featured in fairy tales, and I had them mind when I designed this set. But mostly I would just like my avatar to wear a dress like this, and we don't really have one like it yet.

Outfit: Royal Costume
Head: Royal Crown
Held: Hand Mirror (Mirror, mirror, in my hand, who's the fairest in the land?)
Back: I was going to add a cape, but I couldn't think of a way to make it different from the capes we already have, other than ones that cover too much of the outfit up. Maybe I'll make a castle background.

And here's the male version.

Edit: I added a cape after all, and held idea that might not even fit the theme, but I just wanted to make it.

I just really wanted a greyhound held. XD I love greyhounds, and they show up in medieval and renaissance art:
I don't know if they fit at all into the "fairy tale story" theme, but honestly that wasn't a big part of the original design anyway. It's just a king and queen set.
Also, the cape may look better longer, I don't know. I just made a royal looking cape with the fur, and I don't think we have a cape yet that's pinned at one shoulder like that.

*Forehead smack* I don't know why, but I was suddenly struck with what seems like a perfect held. We need a gargoyle held. XD I will make it. I don't even know why I think it fits.

Edit: I'm sorry to subject you to my horrible rendering of a building and furniture, but here it is. I will provide pictures to help. XD

The background is supposed to be a throne room for the king and queen. There are steps with a carpet leading to the throne, and a stone wall in the back with hangings.
The throne itself is supposed to look more like this:

or this:

I just...kind of gave up on adding the details after the perspective of it was giving me so much trouble.
The room itself is supposed to be kind of like this:

(Small picture, I know.)

Haunted Scarecrow (Shadow)

Ideally for the Head item, having an option with hat+mask, an option with just the hat, and maybe even with just the mask would be great. Face-altering masky bit may be a tad much for a general appeal so giving an option to use just the hat would be nice.

Other coloration ideas:
Ridiculous looking map of color designations for a recolorable option.


I 100% fully admit that I am trying to get my D&D character's outfit into the game so I can run around better looking like Nova. While a handful of friends and artists and artist-friends have have either done commissioned work or given me gift-art of him, the design for the outfit (as shown in the original reference I made linked above) is 100% mine. :)

== Cyber Goth ==
For my 'Cyber Goth' design I drew reference to the flashy colorful 'scene-esc' type of dress-up.

= Held =
Radioactive Waste

= Outfit =
Cyber Goth Attire

= Heads =
Colorful Dreads
Gas Mask

Head pieces can be combined or kept separate.

= Back =
Radioactive Wasteland

== Pumpkin (color set) ==

== Toxic (color set) ==

== Candy Corn (color set) ==

== Midnight Magic ==

Here is my submission
Colored for the sake of being able to see it better:
Has a general outfit, the back item is the cape, the wings are that sort of dragonfly style pixie wings, the head item is combo of wig and a sort of branch crown with the leaves sticking out <all the leaves are not the best leaves in the world, they are somewhat supposed to be like oak leaves?> and the held item is a little magic wood wand though I was trying to put some fancy 'wind' effects around it, I can't really make it look very convincing. Also the male avatar should probably have a leaf belt buckle to sort of mirror the female maybe?

My art is still not great, but at least it's getting better....

Anyway, Oni//Kijo are Japanese demons so hopefully it's fall enough.

Oni Worshiper Set

Avatar Outfit: For the outfit we have a simple, elegant kimono. I wanted to add some sort of decoration to it, but nothing looked great so I just kept it plain.

Avatar Wings: The wings are basically another set of arms and hands. It might be difficult to integrate since not everyone's avatar is the same color, but still looks cool. :)

Avatar Back Item: For the back we have some resurrective flames because it looks cool and we're summoning demons.

Avatar Held Item: The held is a sword with what is supposed to be a demon stone on the hilt. I wanted to put flames on it but I thought that might be Overkill.

Avatar Head Item: Lastly, we have the all powerful Oni mask, it is just your basic Oni mask complete with horns and teeth.
