Slide 1 of 10 by Amy White 1 year ago

We're going to announce the winners and shower them in prizes, I promise. But first, there are some shout outs I absolutely have to make.

First, to everyone who entered and/or commented on the contest:

Guild Wars 2 Players - You Rock.

There's plenty of bad press about toxic game communities these days, but GW2 players just showed how community can be done really, really well.

There's plenty of bad press about toxic game communities these days, but GW2 players just showed how community can be done really, really well.

Any time you invite a bunch of people to share things they are proud of in order to compete, there's a chance that things will be less than pleasant. But everyone here at GameSkinny HQ was totally blown away by how supportive, kind, and creative the GW2 players have been throughout this contest.

If you were here right now, I'd high-five everyone 'til I dislocated my shoulder.

Special Shout Outs

There were so many players who jumped in to help, encourage, or improve. For no reason aside of sheer awesomeness, these guys stepped forward and really got involved.

Ecobahn entered fashion stand out Amelia Bellefleur, but what really stood out was that nearly every time we went to check out a new entry, Ecobahn had already commented to tell the contestant how interesting, unique or lovely their entry was. For leaving the most comments and being the unofficial welcome wagon for the GW2 Fashion Contest, we're going to send you a GameSkinny tshirt and a Guild Wars 2 Guide. Thank you Ecobahn!

Guades not only took great care with their own entry, they also crafted an overview of the top entries and kept up an unofficial vote count. For all your awesomeness, we're going to send you a GameSkinny tshirt, and I'm going to make good on that coffee I promised you (don't worry, it will be a gift card for Starbucks, you can buy a muffin or something since you don't like coffee).

Pallas Athene not only made a big impression and nearly made the finals for Most Adorable, they also commented on tons of other entries with words of support and encouragement. Thanks Pallas!

mastermind behind the Most Adorable Finalist Raina Mistgrave, shared some really well thought out tips on future contests with us. Thanks Raios!

Okay, okay, there were so many awesome people I could do this all night, but I'm guessing you want to meet the winners. Shall we?

    I got my art print a week ago, it's fantastic though it looks like it got smashed through shipping, so it's creased in certain spots ;~; . I have it being pressed under a heavy stack of books, hopefully it'll flatten out.

    Sorry to hear it was pancaked somewhere along the way. I hope those creases come out! Thanks for the update :)

    Grats to all the winners. Looking through the entrants and finalists displayed a kind of disappointing sameness as an undercurrent but it was attributed to judge's tastes at days end. Still, the outfit combinations especially on the Sylvari, were exceptionally well done. Very clever uses of Sylvari glows and duality of skin tones to compliment attire and vice versa.

    Again, major congratulations and thanks for a super fun contest. *salute*

    The strategy guide arrived yesterday and I opened it up after work. I am blown away by the quality of the book(hardcover!!!!) and it came with a neat zone/area flip book. The concept art is amazing and I will treasure this for years to come!

    Thank you Amy and Gameskinny!!!!

    Congratulations to all you splendidly fabulous and gloriously dashing winning stylists and designers!! You have all become legends of GW2 Fashion community, and have each become trendsetters on the Tyrian runway!!!! Go forth in the knowledge that there are hundreds of players that are now going to be watching your every future costume and dye change and are looking to you for inspiration in the hopes to become style icons themselves! Keep doing what you're doing, and soon the whole of Tyria will be slaying dragons and defending the realms while looking totally FLAWLESS! ^_^

    But besides all that. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the special shout out, and for naming me as the unofficial welcome wagon! Appreciate that a lot! Was not expecting any prizes for just telling other people how genuinely stylish they are! So unexpected....for once, I'm at a loss for words!!! THANK YOU

    Congratulations to all the winners! This contest was so much fun. I loved every bit of enthusiasm everyone has expressed. The community and environment that all MMO's seem to create is just inspiring. That is why I've been playing them since... 2001... Been a long joyous ride, and its only just begun.

    "he's busy counting radishes and discussing politics with rabbits" Aha! Surprisingly accurate... Our Hylek tracker was semi-successful in locating Rekahsevak, there was a bit of confusion involving an overgrown snail and some very powerful dredge earth-movers. In any case, I have written a small letter summing up your words (specifically relating to his 'stache) and they shall be delivered asap! Thanks again for this lovely competition, was great to be a part of it and see so many inspiring and wonderful creative characters by so many fellow gw2 players. Also, I really like the form and function of gameskinny, so I shall definitely be sticking around :). Cheers,

    Rekahsevak

    Hey hey.

    Yeah it was very close in our category. You might have noticed that it got to Tuesday night and I essentially shat myself because I realised I was a vote behind Rekahsevak. That led to a frantic few hours posting on our guild forum, the community server forum and my own blog in an attempt to stir up a few more votes.

    We weren't sure as to when the voting was actually due to close, but going on the article it looks like we were tying by the time that the votes were being counted.

    Thanks very much to GameSkinny for hosting the contest and my gratitude goes out to those people who turned out to vote for me. I put a lot of effort into my entry and I'm very pleased to have won.

    Hiya Duke! Congratulations :)! I am an avid fan of WvW so it's brought me great pleasure to see your weird and wonderful character take the trophy :) You've got great motivations for having such a character, and you pull it off with aplomb!

    I just woke up and what a suprise I woke up to! :D Thank you so much! :) I want to thank everyone who voted for me and congratulations to everyone else who won!

    Altough I have a question, it seems you mistakenly have posted the screenshot from Luxuria and linked her story?

    Edit: Ah, I just saw that it was fixed. Thank you very much :)

    Congratulations to Persefone, Kiba, Fartsparkle, Scyythid, Leukothea, Curin, Duke and Hermosa on winning :).

    Now that that's out of the way, do you mind if I put on a smug face that I won something for once? No? Okay, good. >:). Not only because I won do I feel rather smug but because I had some time on my hands I decided to go over my vote count and see how well they matched the winners and came to the conclusion that they matched perfectly.

    I want to specifically address my category. From the start, I knew Persefone would win and while I really wanted the character portrait, I forgot about any chance for that after looking at the artist's page whom is extremely skilled in drawing female persona in a fantasy setting, males not so often. Nonetheless I am extremely pleasantly surprised about my second place ranking :).

    Thanks for this contest and I'll be sure to hover around the GW2 posts for a long while more. But never again will I count votes, well not this year anyway...

    P.S. : I think I'll try out a new victory brew, coffee.
    P.S.S. : I'm very interested in seeing Persefone's finished portrait because the sneak-peek looks amazing
