Hello everyone! We will be holding an Avatar Item Design contest for the 2021 Summer Festival! Please make sure to read the rules carefully!


1. Design an Avatar Outfit for the Summer 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:

1-3 Avatar Held Items
1 Avatar Outfit
1 Avatar Head Item
1 Avatar Back Item
1 Avatar Wings
1 Avatar Background 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 Summer Themed. This means anything to do with the season, such as any holidays that occur within the season, 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 June 20th, 2021 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.


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 a 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! =)


All entries that are picked will have their avatar items created and be given one free copy of the submitted items as well a [Peerless Avatar Token]. Everyone that participates will also receive a participation prize that will include various Festival Supplies.

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 Participants
With valid submission

Prizes: [Fabled Seed Pouch] x1, [Premium Fertilizer] x2, [Box of Sculpting Supplies] x1, [Box of Sculpting Agents] x2, [Decorated Eggs] x500

Resubmitting ideas of mine from last year with some theme/art changes. Noticed Sylestia has a pretty strong lack of basic items and I wanted some more 'normal' clothing options on site so.. I made a surfwear inspired outfit.
I know there's some beachwear outfits on site already, but they are far from gender neutral and a dress isn't exactly the first thing I think of when I think of beach loungewear.

Besides sporty stuff can be cool too. :p


Head item: Mirrored Sunglasses/Aviator Sunglasses
Outfit item: Surftreader Ensemble/Simple Surfwear
Back Item: Beach Bag
Held: Fishing Rod
Wings: Surftreader Board/Simple Surfboard

(Working on the male, wanted to submit this while I make dinner so I don't forget to)

Head: Mirrored Sunglasses/Aviator Sunglasses
An alternate design option if you're not too keen on having other facial glasses-type items on the face.
Outfit: Surftreader Ensemble/Simple Surfwear
Back Item: Beach Bag
Wings: None
Held: Fresh Catch
Meant to be a freshly caught fish :)
Background: Island Escape
I'm a fan of more simple backgrounds and I love island themed things so I made a island beach with a palm tree, a view of the ocean, and seashells.

Bug Catcher Overalls
They're meant to look cute and doll-like

Back items are glowing fairies
Held item is a butterfly net and pet bug(Weevil?) with a leaf cape
Perhaps a freckle body tattoo as well?

Additional color scheme based on Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls:

My inspiration for the pair of wings was the sun during the summer. I tried to make it look like sun rays were coming out from the back of the avatar model.

The crown is also inspired by the sun and has "sun runes" as I call it, running through, along with large yellow gems. The crown's base is intended to be gold, since I want the crown to be solid.

The dress is a long, white, light, cotton dress with gold and yellow accents, also with a gold belt (Or whatever it's called) with sun runes. It also has a small gold bead necklace with a locket, containing another bright yellow jewel that comes with the outfit on the female version. On the male version, white and yellow sandals are visible.

This is basically a sun staff. It has several balls of light and the sun on the staff is glowing.
*I took off the wings so you could see it better

Again, this is inspired by the sun. The bow and arrow are glowing yellow, and the arrow has yellow runes under the glow.

Finally a non-sun themed item, a beach ball.

For the back item, I made a mermaid silhouette.

And lastly, the background. I decided to make a standard undersea picture, with some seaweed and coral on the sand, with some silhouettes of animals in the distance.

I hope you like it!

Back with my wonderful artistry! xD

Seashell Seeker's Attire! AKA Pseudo-Mermaid AKA Sea Deity
So the skirt is sequin-y scaly fabric type thing. Maybe some color variants have gradients? All the pink is seashells. The back item is like wavy seaweed, and the background (or alternate back) is fish.
Two types of possible helds are sea dragons hugging rocks, and a trident type thing.
Head items are: displayed on female; seashell clip (can be long or short?) and seashell crown (once again can be long or short)
Think sparkly, because I got lazy. Again. :3

List of items:
Seashell Seeker's Sea Dragon
Seashell Seeker's Trident
Seashell Seeker's Hairclip/Crown (Long/Short)
Seashell Seeker's Attire
Seashell Seeker's Seaweed (or Friendly Fish)
