Mog the World in 80 days!!

80 days

The event overview:

We are celebrating independence!! Freedom even!!  For the next 12 weeks you will celebrate the National days of countries by transmogging an outfit which matches their flag colours!

I have listed each week, which runs from Sunday to Saturday,  starting with Australia Day on the 26th Jan!! 

The first week will be the month of January and you need to pick a country on that list to create an outfit for.  The following week is for February, so you pick a country from the list provided, so on and so forth!

The rules:

  • The colours/theme must match the countries current flag.
  • All 12 weeks must be completed to ensure fairness in judging and finals.
  • The list on each page may be outdated but it is the official list we are going to base this competition on. (Original source)
  • Transmogs can be submitted in Mogit, ModelViewer or ingame
  • Your event entry must be able to use the outfit as a proper end-game transmog (so no Gnomes in Shaman gear or Goblin Rogues with shields) including cloak, helm and weapons. Disqualification of your entry if this not correct.
  • Include the gear you used for each outfit please.
  • Transmogs must be emailed to me by 6pm Friday night (AEST) of each week this allows us time to collate/judge on the weekend and announce winners on Mon/Tues. e.g. the first week cut-off is 31st Jan 6pm.  Multiple weeks can be submitted at once, please advise country/week they are for.  Consider a file name of   [dragonray_Aust_week1.jpg] or something similar.  Send the screenshots to my gmail.com account of onyxiia.
  • Your lovely judges for this event are Navimie, Cymre and Kamalia.  I will be providing the images to them unnamed so they won’t be able to judge on person, just style.
  • Finals will consist of picking the top three outfits over the entire event.
  • Scores will be released during the finals week for all contestants.
  • Prizes to be confirmed, donations welcome.

Judging:

Judging will be based on 2 criteria with a maximum of 15 points.
  1. Theme – have you used the correct colours for the flag/country? (5 points)
  2. Flavour – Originality/style/combo. (10 points)

Prizes:

We have received a some fantastic prize donations for this event so far

    This sounds both terrifying and exciting. I’m going to have to try my hand at this.

      It’s one of the reasons I wanted to get it out before Australia Day, so people entering had a chance to plan their 12 outfits in advance rather than having to push out one each week :) Well….I hope anyway! hehe

      • JD Kenada January 11, 2014 11:35 am

        You say that and I see me punching out an outfit or two the day before they’re due. lol

        • dragonray January 11, 2014 11:59 am

          That’s the best way I think, if you have spare time now to get them done :) Well I know I prefer that especially with such tight deadlines of a week…

    Such a fun idea! I’m deffo entering :D
    One question, MUST helms and cloaks be included? I usually tend to avoid cloaks as they sometimes overwhelm a set :/ Especially when used with tabards, there’s just too much…flowyness D:

    • dragonray January 11, 2014 11:34 pm

      Thanks Samaramon, I know what you mean completely about cloaks, but I think I will leave the requirement in. Sorry to be a pain in the buttski, but you have had me mulling this over for an hour :) you really stumped me! Don’t hate me for it ok? That’s all I ask :D

      • Samaramon January 12, 2014 2:01 am

        No hate at all! In fact, I like the challenge :)
        EXPECT ME. >:V

          If you don’t want a cape there’s always The Emperor’s new cape. But I can’t think of any invisible helms that you could use.

            I did briefly think of that one, only because i noticed it in mogit for the first time and i couldn’t remember the name of it!!!

    The week posts aren’t working, will they be up again soon?

    • Dragonray January 24, 2014 10:02 am

      Bugger…fixing them now..clearing importing/exporting doesn’t work so well with some things :)

      That’s what happens when you tweak the code :) Oops…should be fixed

  4. PlaidElf January 26, 2014 7:49 pm

    After mulling this over for a bit I’m tempted to give this a go. :D We’ll see what I can manage.

    • Dragonray January 26, 2014 7:56 pm
