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.
Past Results: Winners of Costume Contest Thursdays from Sept-Dec 2016 can be found here. (https://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php?topic=12455.msg212791#msg212791)  Winners from the 2017 Calendar year can be found here. (https://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php?topic=12905.msg215408#msg215408)  ALL Costume Contest Thursday shots from HERC can be found in a Flickr gallery as well.

The New Year has arrived, and the weekly Thursday Night Costume Contests are returning this week, Jan. 4th, 5:30pm Pacific / 8:30pm Eastern, in Atlas Park.
Theme: The Twelve Days of Christmas!
Yep, we've still got a few more days of Christmas left, and 12 days (and more) worth of ideas to choose from.
See you Thursday night in Atlas Park!

Like the lady in the DMV - that's a rough job. And the guy that drives the snow-plow. And the school nurse...”  We know you can think of more! So, to all of the UNSUNG HEROES, this week’s CC’s for you!

Hi! :)

Would you guys ever consider inviting the winner of the costume contests to be an (optional) guest judge for the following week's contest? Just as an extra prize for the winner, and to mix up the (esteemed :) ) panel of judges a bit? Thoughts?

Also... I can't help but notice that every time the judging takes places, it's nighttime in AP. *whines* This is me whining and throwing a hissy fit over the fact that my colors aren't popping and my costumes always look duller in the dark. Lol.

Okay I love you all bye <3

"Guest judging" is in intriguing suggestion, Ultima15, and one HERC can talk about. :-) 

The HERC judges are a bit stuck for timing for the Costume Contests - we have a set start time, and need to stick to it to be fair to everyone.  Lately, yes, that has meant starting judging during the 'evening' hours, but if we wait till the sun rose again before we started, then it would invariably be dark by the time we take the winner/honorable mention screenshots, which would mean asking the winner/honorable mentions to hang around another extra 10 - 15 minutes in order to get theirs screenshots taken during daylight again.

Speaking for myself, I do understand you're point about seeing costume colors in daylight.  Generally by the time we're done judging, the sun is rising again, so most of the time we do get to see the costumes with both night and day lighting, before we announce the judges results.
