Wardrobe Judging: How Will It Be Done?

 

Recently I’ve received a few e-mails and questions about the amazing wardrobe contest that we’re running in tandem with Trion. One of the primary concerns is how the contest will be judged and whether or not there’s a possibility for favouritism towards users or a bias against users.

A lot of the judging depends on the scale of the submissions. Seeing as there are already over 200 and it’s only day two this is going to take some significant time to narrow it down – but I’ll explain how the process is going to work:

All screenshots are dumped into a directory structure that has nothing to do with the applicant. We’re going to take all of the screenshots once it is closed and go through them one by one – we’ll really have no idea who they belong to short of if their name is in the screenshot. All screenshots will be filtered through each judges “top” lists and then compared against each judge. This process will help us narrow it down from the possible thousand(s) of submissions down to a smaller number where we can group up and discuss them objectively.…

Featured Wardrobes: October 20
The first of this week's featured wardrobes comes from the aloof Sheepy on Shatterbone.

Sheepy explained in their email to me that this wardrobe is inspired by the Valkyrians. I can't say that I saw the reference, not being a Yu-Gi-Oh fan myself, I just liked the wardrobe. Sheepy did an excellent job using brown to balance all the gold colour, as well as giving contrast to display all the intricate details of the pieces. (The buttons on the chest piece are my favourite detail.) Overall I really like the individual pieces Sheepy chose, and he matched them all very well. It's too bad that we don't get to see the cape - I'm curious what he chose to finish off the wardrobe.
