    i don't want to complain because i'm sure people worked hard to set it all up, but those are the most thrown together non-summer costumes i ever saw.

    a purple duck, some teehee pink clothes, some bad spellblade thing, a cowboy, and that yellow costume. i'm sorry people, but you are not creative.

    but the cloaks and weapons are very good.

    The concept art contest resulted in some great designs. The costume contest had more disappointing results. Was it really due to a lack of participation? I had an outfit I was considering entering. Now I wish I had.

    Yep, and I spent a month chasing down those rares just for the hat. On top of that, it was a tedious forced to PVE situation.

    I appreciate the intentions of the contest and the people who set it up but unfortunately I have to agree some of these winners are.. bad, in my taste. I like the Summer Deity one; the warm colors and combination of the dress and crown work well. Not a big fan of the shoulders. Summer Shimmy is okay minus the hat, kinda reminds me of some sort of Daisy Duke thing. The other 3 baffle me.. especially Duck Caller.
    Duh.

    Each to their own. Like the Daisy Duke hat. I'm a real fan of the conceptual art contest. That wasn't an assemble your own outfit but original art work. The capes are. Bind on pick up, but I had to get a few pair of my favorites. They saw me coming.

    below are of my rogue ( top is all black dye with rank90 rogue set wardrobe) then below that is before the dye , and below that is my mage again in black dyed icebound armour , helm replaced with salvarola's helm. whatcha think? XD ( i know they're not summer wear but they look great despite me not having the game on MAX settings , this is on my iMac thats going on 8 years old running off of crossover :P = not too bad right?

    I'm quite happy with the Glasswing Shroud, however I wish it flittered outwards when jumping.

    Outside of that, all but one of the costume bundles are just plain NOT-SUMMER and many are just so incredibly ugly. I'm tempted to enter the next contest and absolutely annihilate the competition if these are the true 'winners'.

    I'm also sick of all the black costumes. Save them for halloween, where they belong. I was hoping to see more flaming robes or lifeguard attire. But no, we get a pop star parody and a FRIGGIN' DUCK.


    Excuse me while I go 'genesis torrent' in the loo,

    Oh I forgot to clarify, my comment was solely reflecting on the costume bundle summer stuff. The concept design things are awesome! Definitely gonna be getting my hands on those weapons.
    Duh.

    The problem with this contest was literally the contest itself, how do you make a theme out of Summer with the current Wardrobes available in RIFT. How do you even define a 'summer wardrobe', it's about having fun on a holiday, I don't think there's anything in particular that would define it and thus you're left with this kind of result.

    I myself didn't enter it because I knew I wasn't going to be able to make something great for both males and females, there's just not enough wardrobes out there currently that really portrays 'summer' in a defined way.

    In my personal opinion as I play a male avatar, the summer contest wardrobe actually looks horrible in all honesty. I'm actually really glad that Goddess of Summer took 1st place, because I can't really see a great theme coming from the others considering a majority of them just tossed on a couple of bikinis and shorts as I already expected.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Considering you can shard hop around, it doesn't take much time.

    the real question is why are all the costume weapons 2handers? rogues can't use a single one

    That particular contest was for staff and two handed swords only. However we are probably going to add matching one handed versions for this reason.
