Greetings, Maplers!

It's time for another Look of the Month contest! We will be looking for the best outfits, costumes, and flair from each of your in-game characters!
Here's what we are looking for in specific:

A picture of your character dressed in your favorite MapleStory outfit. This can be your training gear, outfits from events, clothes from the Cash Shop, anything! We prefer the picture of your character be taken this month. After all, this is the Look of the Month contest.

Creativity based around the time of the year is something we consider as well. In months that have the possibility of themes (like October with Halloween and December with Christmas, for example) we may pick two winners if we see multiple entries in both categories.

Participants should write a short description of what your character is wearing and what sort of look you're going for.

Make sure to include your IGN and World.

Template:
This is just the basic template of what you should have in your entry:
[b]Image:[/b]

[b]IGN:[/b]

[b]World:[/b]

[b]Short description of what your character is wearing:[/b]

[b]What look you're going for (theme):[/b]
You may make additions to this template in your post as you see fit, although the criteria listed above are required.

Rules:
  • Look of the Month Contest July - Official Rules
  • No multiple submissions
  • No plagiarism
  • No inappropriate content (Definition of inappropriate is left up to the decision of the judges)
  • The use of sites such as BannedStory to simulate environments and character outfits is NOT permitted.
  • Entries must be submitted within the submission time limit which will run from the time of this post to July 25th, 2017 at 12 PM / Noon (Pacific Time).
  • Any breach of these rules is grounds for disqualification
  • All decisions of the judges are final
  • Players that have been banned in the game are not allowed to win this contest.

How do we decide the winner?
We have three elements that go into judging:
  • Originality: Is your outfit unique, or common? Is it yours, or is it everyone else's too?
  • Trendy: Is your outfit hip or lame?
  • Theme: Why does your outfit work? Does each piece of equipment have a "why" behind it, or is it cobbled together randomly?

Prizes:
  1. Look of the Month winner will receive 35,000 Maple Points
  2. Three (3) Runner Ups will receive 10,000 Maple Points

The winner will have their character spotlighted on the MapleStory Forums for the month following the event.
The winner will be chosen no later than July 28th, 2017 at 11:59:59 PM Pacific Time. The Maple Points prize will be distributed within the coming week after the announcement.

For the month of July we will have 1 primary winner chosen:
  • Your character in their favorite MapleStory outfit!

We can't wait to see how fashionable your in-game characters are! And if you have any questions about this contest, feel free to ask!

Best of luck!

An outfit heavily inspired by 1920s newsboys. Were they really ever that stylish? ... Not really? Oh. Well. I still look incredible.

    What look you're going for (theme)

    My theme is dressing up as the term PLUR! It means Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect. I dressed up my character like this because this is who I am in maplestory. I show Peace to the people that show evil in the game. I supply Love to the people that care about me the most which are my friends in-game. I Unify other maplers into the game if they are new or just need a simple hello to brighten up their day. I show Respect to the people in my life that wants the same politeness that they give me. This is the true meaning of PLUR!!

    Happy Mapling <3

    IGN: Amulidam

    World: Reboot

    Hat: White Night Horns
    Overalls: Blue Phoenix Toga
    Gloves: Wedding Gloves
    Shoes: Blue Loose Sox
    Cape: Nova Enchanter Winged Cape
    Hair: Purple Danika Hair
    Face: Dreamy Face (Amethyst)
    Eye Acc: Fairy Mark

    (Weapon has been removed for the sake of keeping it out of the way, as it does not add anything to the overall look.)


    What look you're going for (theme): This I would like to call the "Dreams Nova", as it combines the looks of the Blue Phoenix Toga with small horns and wings to be what can be described as a Nova. Of course, one can only dream to have such beautiful wings. Her lazy yet simple look combined with the beauty of her outfit should inspire gawkers and fans alike. I opt to not have a butload of effects because why would I want to overshadow the look with everything on the planet?
    The Robo pet I like how it matches with Amuli's overall look.

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    Hat: Spring Fairy Fur Hat
    Overall: Rose Princess (Female)
    Cape: Spring Energy
    Chair: Pantheon Camourflage Chair


    Hair style: Time World Black Alice Hair
    Face style: Still Eyed Face (Black)


    What look you're going for (theme):
    Fairytale
    Simple, cute, elegant is always the kind of style that I use and want to see. A nice outfit with the touch of a hat already makes a stylish character, adding some extra details even elevate it more - a not too complex effect cape does the job quite well. I'd like the game be a fairytale where everything is perfect and beautiful!

    What look you're going for (theme): SUMMER HOLIDAYS! What a better way to relax and get over the whole time being stuck in a classroom (Or like me, stuck at work...) than to be out in a forest, camping. Seeing the grandeur of the great outdoors and getting real close to nature. Instead of being stuck inside day in, day out!
    Fantastical way to recharge too!

    Short description: Just a simple look. A surfboard, skirt (can't see) and the red tshirt that I kept after all these years

    Theme: Well it's July, and nothing goes better with July than relaxing at the beach in the blazing hot weather. Surfs up! Aran is currently escaping from Lilin's constant demands to train all the time by taking a vacation in Gold Richie's resort. Unfortunately Lilin is very good at getting information so she will find her in a few hours.

    Short description of what your character is wearing: My character is wearing the button-a-holic sugar cap, dollish pink, hawaiian couple (female), hula hula beaded anklet, idols of the birds, and pink shooting star ring.

    What look you're going for (theme): I'm going for a beach look! Going to the beach is a favorite summer activity. The hawaiian couple and hula anklet show that my character is ready to hit the hand and splash in the water. Beaches are really sunny in the summer, so wearing a cap will prevent sun blinding my eyes!! The idol of the birds show that birds also love visiting the beach (especially for some left over food). The shooting star ring just makes my outfit complete (: Looking forward to summer fun at the beach!

    What look you're going for (theme):

    The theme I'm going for is a fairy look, because I'm in love with this weapon and just had to come up with a look to compliment it. I used various items that were flowery and leafy. I decided to use one of the maps in Elluel since it is a beautiful and mystical setting, as it is the home of the Elves. :)

    IGN: Sayüri

    World: Luna

    Short description of what your character is wearing: She's wearing a large rainbown knit top with shorts and a pink bow holding her hair up, while holding her favorite plushie.

    What look you're going for (theme): I'm going for my original self.
    This whole theme defines the real me, the love I have for cats and for stuffed animals that I have all around my room, together with a huge bed filled with big fluffy and comfy pillows.
    Here she's wearing what I usually wear on a daily basis (on summer days): a large comfy top with shorts and of course, shoeless, like everyone loves to be while at home. My hair is usually tied up, so it doesn't bother while doing home tasks.
    Haku is representing my all time companion - Kiko, my adorable cat.
    I hope I was able to share a bit of my real world with all of you. ~

    6. Green shades
    7. Green skiis.

    Theme
    If you didn't recognize the theme already you won't vote for this anyway.
    It's the old Maplestory pro look from around 2007-2009. Basically the typical CRA + tyrant look now but 10 years back.
    If you're an old school player this doesn't need explanation

    PS: this look has only 1 NX item, namely the Star shorts (male) the rest is anvilled on my real gear.
    I thought that was kinda interesting.
