SOTM 2008 - April (Dress Code: Female: Elegant/Ceremonial) - Entry Phase
Welcome to the Signature of the Month Contest!!!!!!

The theme for April is "Dresscode: Female: Elegant/Ceremonial".

Congratulations to Sephi for winning the March Contest!!!
For those wondering "what is Elegant/Ceremonial?" Please see here.

The winner of this contest will decide the theme for next months contest.

This thread is for submissions into the Signature of the Month contest.

Contest Rules are as follows:
1. Every contest will have a theme. Each contestant can choose their own renders, as long as they comply with Animesuki guidelines (if you even think it's going to be reported to the mods, don't bother...even as a joke). Themes cannot be picked twice in a row.

2. Every signature must abide by Animesuki rules regarding size. This means any dimension smaller than 500 x 160, and less than 50k is acceptable. Nothing larger. No exceptions.

3. Contest submissions begin on the first day of each month. The entry period will last until two weeks from that date.

4. On the day after the submission date, a poll will open and it will last for one week. When the poll closes, the winner will be allowed to choose a theme for the next contest.

5. The next contest will not begin until the first of the month, when submissions are allowed once again.

6. Only one official submission per contestant. You may create as many entries as you wish, but you are only allowed to enter one. Failure to decide on one signature by the deadline will result in immediate disqualification for that months contest.

7. You are allowed to wait until the final day to turn in your entry. If you wish to keep your entry private until the day the poll opens you can request it in the submission thread or by private message to the organizer.

This months entry period officially starts Tuesday, April 1st, 2008 and lasts until Friday, April 18th, 2008. Entries will be gathered and put up for voting on Sunday, April 20th, 2008. Voting will end on the following Sunday.***

Entries can either be private messaged or posted in the submission thread. The submission thread can also be used to post works in progress to gather feedback from other posters. You do not have to post your entries in the thread if you don't wish to (for those who want to be private about what they are working on), until the last day of submissions. The whole idea is to promote quality entries but it's not required to submit early if you are confident in your entry but want to keep your submission secret until the due date.

I will periodically update the thread to keep track of the names of all contestants and list those names here. Those who wish to keep entries private until the due date should still inform me they are entering so I can keep track of who is competing.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them here or private message me, I'll do my best to answer. ;)

Good luck and most importantly, have fun!:D

***A few notes about due dates and other "stuff"***

The due date ends at 11:59 (midnight basically) UTC/GMT. The polling will be up one day later after 11:59 (again, midnight). I will try to be as lenient as I can with last minute submissions but only slightly.

It is up to you as a contestant to know what your time zone is in relation to UTC/GMT. I cannot do this for you. Here is a site that can help you figure that out:

Hopefully that won't be an issue for too many people.


This months entry period is extended by almost a week. I'm sure no one will have a problem with this. ;)

KiNA 2008-03-25 00:35


I dunno if I'll be joining this one to be honest.. Still, there's a plenty of time left.. in the last 2 hours shifting tru my folders.. I have 1 possible candidate.. very promising >_<

Ice Climbers 2008-03-25 00:38

Dont tell me you're really going to do THAT right KiNA :naughty:

KiNA 2008-03-25 00:43

Well, she did wear yukata :naughty:

Marina 2008-03-25 01:01

Why is it that I feel very suspicious of KiNa........ :heh:

I'm in for this one as well, hopefully I'll have the time to pull at least a few off so I can have a preferred one for picking ^_^

Good luck everyone!

Izayoi 2008-03-25 01:06

LOLWUT? Sephi won again?

I think Formal/Elegant is really just depending on how you look at it, for example: Flan-chan, her loliness itself makes the dress elegant.

Zaris 2008-03-25 01:14

Only way to win is to give the community what they want. I guess Sephi is just good at reading minds. :> But yeah, now that I've seen this, count me in for this one.

Cyz 2008-03-25 01:21

Lol! Sephi puts magic on his works. Nyways, I don't know what KiNa's planning but since he did use :naughty: <-- this kind of emoticon then it must be something :nod: :heh: Well, I guess it's a good theme. *searching for pic*

Solace 2008-03-25 01:38

I'm wondering what's gonna be tougher, finding the right image or creating the right bg to go with it. Still...I'm in. ;)

KiNA 2008-03-25 01:45

+1 more problem.

How the hell are we gonna animate them.

Current possible candidate found.. 3. Total folder searched... 12.

This ought to be interesting :mad:

There are always ways to animate a sig as long as you try

Solace 2008-03-25 01:49

Most likely, text or bg. Unless you wanna try something like wind moving cloth or hair. Not sure how crazy you'd wanna get with the animation. The formal only applies to type of clothing, not scenario you'd find that person in. So if you found a shrine maiden fighting demons, you'd have more choices with animation.

KiNA 2008-03-25 01:56

Dont worry, I'm just in the current phase of ranting my frustration.. My submission will be an animated sig again, no doubt bout that..

Question.. Is CC in Zero's costume considered formal/elegance?

bkg9990 2008-03-25 06:10

Nooo! you're planning to use CC? :p

Ayame_ 2008-03-25 09:46

I sense tension with lack of good renders. :P

I like this topic, should really make it tougher to get real quality. Of course, the usual suspects are always good for the high bar. I'll make sure I get in this one. Formal it is. Time to start digging through folders.

This one is a bit hard. I don't really know what to think of it. I personally saw many better examples of formal/elegant than C.C with the Zero costume. Just to name someone. Euphie is usually wearing something that fits the theme.

Zero costume does look somewhat formal. Though i'm personally not to found of it. I'm not saying it's allowed or not atm. At least not till i heard what others think of it. :)

Simple1 2008-03-25 10:19

Formally or elegance huh

Hmm.... Tuxedo and wedding dress

nice theme must join this

Riker 2008-03-25 10:27

Contributing one image for the theme.
I hope people still remembers Mai's and Sayuri's gowns. : O
