Heyo, Maplers!

It's time for the Look of the Holidays contest! We will be looking for the best holiday 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 holiday 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. (Hint: What kinda spin do you have for Santa?)

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 Holidays Contest! - 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 January 21st, 2018 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
  3. The winners will also receive a special role and color in our Discord server. Discord.gg/globalmaplestory

The winner will have their character spotlighted on the MapleStory Forums for the month following the event.
The contest will end on January 26th @11:59 PM PST.

For the month of December/January 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!

- From the MapleStory Volunteers & Arwoo

    IGN: HSeal (Bishop)

    World: Reboot

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    - Harp Seal Mask (Hat)
    - Harp Seal Doll Outfit (Overall)
    - Harp Seal Gloves (Glove)
    - Seal Wave Snuggler (Weapon)
    - Angel's Ribbon (Cape)
    - Override Label Ring (Ring)
    - The Next Legend (Medal)
    - Overjoyed Smile (Face)
    - Ashen (Skin)

    What look you're going for (theme):
    Living among my own kind

    That'd be too easy to summarize but the character reflects my own person, I also used my real name combined with the abbreviation of the Holy Symbol skill but decided to keep it anonymous for personal reasons. Anyway, about me: my skin is light(er) so I decided to give the character ashen skin (to fit to the rest of the outfit too, else I would go with Pale skin which I have IRL). Seals are one of my favorite animals and I also get often called as seal for being a bit more chubby (obviously it's not meant as insult or anything offensive but as joke, I actually find it fun) and since I love to help people as much as I can I have combined these two facts with the job as Bishop, the prime support class of MapleStory. I often came around Rien Strait to help my friends whenever they train a new character or just started with Maple by giving buffs or watching for them. The Angel's Ribbon rounds up the style by giving it an "aura" around the body, also because of an aquatic theme. I keep my smile although I spend hours over hours to help out my friends and other people, maybe it is not that good after all but with my only real talent to support and help, if I can make people smile in the end, so I can smile and know it was all worth. The Seal Wave Snuggler fits to me since I have a similar pillow I like a lot and because you cannot have enough seals, simply. And if I ever have the option to replace my Label Ring and Medal, I would have seal-related label ring and a medal, called "The Legendary Seal". I merely use them for the blue-ish style with the light colours such as white. Lastly, I love to make puns, and people have to endure them. Because you cannot SEAL me from doing them. (^:

    Short description of what your character is wearing: Snow Queen, Dollish Pink, Single Earring, Crystal Dew, Goddess Wristband Lumpy Snowflakes, V Label Ring

    What look you're going for (theme): The theme I am going for is an ice princess look, with a white-blue color theme. I chose this theme because it goes well with my IGN 'Oujo' which means princess in Japanese and because I am an Ice/Lightning mage. I chose this map because it is winter and very fitting for my theme and matches the color scheme I have going with my look. I decided to use the cape lumpy snowflakes to add a bit of color and because they're snowflakes!

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    Sweet wiggly ears, Dollish Pink, Oversized Oxford, Tedacular Bearington, Fallen Angel Tail(sudo mouse tail), and White Christmas Sock.
    What look you're going for (theme):
    The theme I went for is more mouse-like. Mice don't hibernate for the winter, so this little mouse snuck in Lilin's house to be shelter by the warmth of the fireplace. Being a mouse is hard, can't find clothing that actually fits which is why the shirt is probably several sizes too big.

    What look you're going for (theme):Winter Survival

    Here goes another story (and yep, same guy who did that solo guild pic in the guild dress up contest)!

    Light snow has just passed the area. The fire was blown out and the sun is setting. The warming Santa-like clothing really helped me through the nights, and the makeshift plates are tattered with food stains that I gathered from hunting. There's a forest nearby to my north and a castle up in the El Nath Mountains. Rumor has it that it houses ghosts of dead citizens and members of the royal family, so I don't plan to go there anytime soon- as a last resort, maybe. Luckily, this chair is in good shape, made up from broken branches from trees that fell during the day. However, a nighttime storm seems to be arriving from the Northeast, and I need to come up with a way to keep myself warm. This board next to me might make somewhat of a cover, but all it has are tally marks and some letters that say: Days survived: IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII I.

    Looks like winter is coming. My will to survive is unrelenting, and I hope I can make it back to town before the holidays or succumb to the calming secrets of the cold...

    I am going for a somewhat more realistic approach than the others; something that is somewhat warm, and something that will keep my feet off the ice. (Do you people realize how cold ice is?)

    Even though it's the holidays, Lilin still wants Aran to train. But she doesn't want to so she's secretly taking a vacation at snowdrift lodge. Time to ditch the polearm for a snowboard and shred slopes instead of monsters. This is my first time snowboarding but if I could defeat the horntail, a slope should be no problem.

    What look you're going for (theme): As a f2p player, it's hard to gather items that would fit a certain theme in such a short time, but I did my best! I tried going for something chilly as you can see, a Snow Angel, if you will xD, but probably failed, I also thought the use of the VJ skin would fit the theme, oh, and thanks for the mount! It really helped :D

    In this Halloween dress-up, I am going for the theme of safety. I believe safety is very important in the Maple community, and I have illustrated this by dressing up as a stoplight, stopping to let a mother hen and her chicks safely pass by. :)
