Costume Contest Thursdays
Every Thursday at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern in Atlas Park.

To continue the tradition started by Steven Munger in Facebook, HERC is going to host Costume Contests until his return.  (IF he returns?  We're almost two years into this now.)

Every week we'll announce a theme, or go themeless and during that week anything goes.  Questions? Comments? Use this thread.

Instructions: The event is held in Atlas Park in Paragon Chat (it's the first zone you land in after character creation... you can also hit the train if you're hero-side, or use "/mapmove 1" to get there from anywhere else.  Mapmove basics (https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Paragon_Chat#Changing_Maps) explained here.)  The event floor will be the Atlas Park Statue.  The judges will stand in the center of the square and ask contestants to line up on the side of the square facing City Hall. 

To participate, line up before the event starts and the judges will pick a winning design out of the contestants ("How" a winner is picked is left up to the Host/Judges.)  If you want to watch as the audience, no problem, simply stand behind the Host and Judge inside the square.

Rules:

This event is also subject to HERC's Activity Rules for all events and contests, posted here (https://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php?topic=12906.msg224980#msg224980).  In short:

Questions? Ask them right here.

Paragon Chat weekly Costume Contest, Thursday night, Jan. 24th, Atlas Park!
Time: 8:30pm Eastern / 5:30pm Pacific.
THEME: “Snow Beasts!”   
What strange, mythical creatures lurk in the cold, windy, snowy places?  Some we’ve seen in wintry horror flicks, others dwell on the edges of imagination.  Looking forward to seeing what “Snow Beasts” you all bring to Atlas Park!

Sorry for the delay in getting recent Winner / Honorable Mention screenshots posted - I'm learning a new photo edit program, and once I've got the hang of it, we'll get the backlog caught up.

In the meantime,  THIS WEEK's CC THEME is:  “Chinese New Year”.   Go for this year's Chinese New Year animal, another Chinese Zodiac animal, or anything you feel celebrates Chinese New Year.

So is the costume contest going to be in Atlas Park or Cimerora?  If Cimerora where?
Title: Re: Costume Contest Thursdays in Atlas Park
Post by: Nyghtshade on March 13, 2019, 10:19:02 PM
Sorry for the Confusion.  It will be in Cimerora (/mapmove 3), near the fountain in the center of the little village. 
So, zone into Cimerora, exit the cave, turn right on the cobblestone path, and follow it into the village.  :)
