Well, I dont like the Aria anime (not even a bit), but I do like the girl's uniforms. If it's OK, I suggest people here to check Sol's thread for some awesome Aria vectors.

1. Gown
2. Wedding Dress
3. Yukata
4. Kimono
5. Tuxedo[well if you would use a male render]
6. Blouse
7. King's / Queen' suit with robe
8. Party dress

Alicia will be very sad
Guess Aria isn't a anime for everyone. Though i absolutely love it, and would recommend everyone to at least give it a chance.

The theme has changed. Males are NOT allowed.
Not to sure about the blouse part. But if it is what google is showing. Than it's not allowed. And somewhat unsure about the Party dress, if you see party dress the same as ball dress. Than it's allowed. Though when i go kill braincells. The girls i meet don't exactly wear stuff i had in mind for this theme. So unless you see a party dress the same as the Mai image riker posted. It's not allowed.

But the others are all allowed. And should leave you enough room to choose something that fits the theme...

Edit: As some of you already saw some sigs entry using real people. Well me and Solace don't really mind it. Though this is a anime forum. And i would personally like to see anime renders. But real people is allowed.

If the tuxedo is elegant or ceremonial, than it's fine by me. As long as it's a girl. It would be easier if you posted a pic of it so we can see the tuxedo how it looks. Or if you don't want others to see your stock, you could always pm Solace or me.

Though out of the huge amount of choices. I can't fathom that there isn't a more suitable render that convey the feeling of elegant or ceremonial better. (see my image pack or the posted pictures)

And the change of rule was needed to make sure this SOTM is guided in the right direction so it doesn't turn in to a freestyle and to avoid seeing something like this

I'd say yes to the Lucky Star Tuxedo/Wedding dress one.

I could be wrong on this one. But isn't a butler about the same as a male version of a maid? So i would say no.

Perhaps a new layer Apply image > Soft light and lower opacity would make it look a bit better. It should make the color a bit more vibrant i think.

And there is the image that would have been much better for my try. Can't find what you don't look for. I like the right side up one better, but like was already mentioned, quality is a little low. Good sig though, i'm jealous that you got a better render than me

If Kagami in a tuxedo works, why not Hinagiku in a butler costume (it totally looks like a tux to me )


This has generated so much confusion

.....
For now. I don't care at how you see it atm. I say Yes to Tuxedo Kagami. And no to Butler Hinagiku. The Tuxedo has a different purpose than whatever a butler is wearing. A butler costume is not ceremonial, and elegant is also arguably. Though the Tuxedo is also arguably in elegance in my eye. It is intended to be ceremonial for the wedding. Solace can revoke my decision if he thinks it should be otherwise.

The theme still seems to be confusing. Have you guys/girls actually took a look at the images posted here? Can people seriously relate those pictures to things like maids and school uniforms?

I know i said i don't want to hinder people in there creation of a sig. But the reason themes are there is so it doesn't turn in to a freestyle and there is a extra challenge in making the signature. Please keep that in mind when choosing a picture and not trow down the first picture you find/like and might not meet he requirement. Instead you could look around a bit more and see if you find something better that you are sure of that meets the theme. (look at images i posted to see what direction i had in mind)

I'll just link them again.




This is what i had in mind with this theme.

If it still didn't got true. View this image pack(click image to download all the images)
Spoiler for preview of the imagepack:

Original

Opacity 49%

Opacity 79%


I did it and it became a bit lighter, about the colour i wanted it to give a soft feeling and this came out. I can try diffrent other colours but im not sure if it will fit.

Alright, we can use real people in this one XD. I can see it now..

@konstargirl, Sweethoney, and Miko Miko: Great entries. The best of you guys to tell you the truth. Good choice of colors and it fits the theme excellent.

To tell you guys the truth, I think this theme might be a little hard for some people. I think what they are trying to say is think of the theme as a real artist, like ancient roman paintings (since lots of there art shows this). And beauty of a women within. Might not make sense, but I hope I helped XD

Not what my intentions are. I been in quite a bad mood for most of the day so i might sound a bit harsh. So far with this new theme i had quite a lot of complaints. I tried making this theme as clear as possible. I asked quite a lot of people about what they think and how i can make the theme more clear. Only a handful has actually given some info. And the rest is either not serious or just shows a i don't care attitude and complains afterwards.

Now the problem doesn't of course lie at people not willing to help. You guys can't look in my brains what i think. But i really tried hard with the pictures to make the theme clear. Or at least what i had in mind. No one is the same so everyone has a different view about things. But with the pictures posted and the image pack containing 80 images. I'm sure we can all come to a mutual agreement what this theme is suppose to be about. I don't blame people for not downloading the imagepack. 79MB is quite a lot. But the 12 pictures posted should of at least hinted what i wanted with this theme.

I may sound a bit harsh at this moment. But that is how i experiences this so far. I don't think i can make the theme more clear than what i already did. But if your uncertain about a render/stock you want to use. Look at the pictures i posted and think if the cloth are sort of similar.

To quickly sum it up. So far the sig Ice Climber posted. And CrowKenobi last sig and Shinbou sig are good examples of what kind of source i had in mind with this theme. Now don't worry if i didn't named your entry. That probably means i'm to lazy to scroll back more.

Mmm bit different than what i had in mind that it would do
I can only suggest try other blending modes and play around with opacity. But for the soft feel. New layer>Apply image. Gaussian blur 2 or 3. And lower opacity to 20-35% till you like the softer feel of it. It should be a bit soft/dreamy like.
