Look of the Holidays Contest [WINNERS ANNOUNCED]
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.
This is just the basic template of what you should have in your entry:
[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.

We have three elements that go into judging:

- 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?

- Three (3) Runner Ups will receive 10,000 Maple Points
- 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!
