Two times each week, a different member has the opportunity to be chosen to win Admin's Pick.

If you can put together a particularly stylish, fun, or eye-catching outfit then there's a good chance that it could be you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Remember that this isn't about being the best dressed! Admin's Pick isn't about having a better outfit than anyone else, but about standing out from the crowd and catching an admin's eye.

Each Admin is looking for something different, so don't pander to anyone! Using items creatively, having a clever theme, and creating a skillful balance of colors and layers will get you farther than brown nosing ever would.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


If you are a winner, your avatar will appear on the front page for everyone to see and your winning outfit will be permanently displayed in the winner's gallery.

With so many new chances to win, prizes for Admin's Pick are now cumulative! A first-time winner will receive a sum of 1,000 gold. And each time that they win afterward, that amount will increase by 1k. The more times you win, the more gold you win!

Since you can win more than once, there's no limit to the amount of gold that you could get!

Just remember that you can only win once within any 2 week period. After you win, it will be exactly two weeks before you are eligible to be chosen again. After all, we need to give everyone a fair chance at the spotlight, amiright?

Hints and tips

If you're keen on improving your chances of winning, here are some helpful pointers for you.


  • Try for as balanced a look as possible. Too much of one color in one area will throw the whole look off.
  • Make good use of accessories; a combination of bare arms, legs or midriff, and no hand held items makes for an incomplete looking avatar.
  • Use your hair to its best advantage:
    • go for a contrasting color that compliments your outfit, rather than one that blends in and disappears.
    • use a shade that matches an accent color that you haven't used a lot of.
    • If you want to use the same shade as your predominant outfit color, use a shorter style so the hair and item are separated and don't just form a big amorphous blob of the same color.
  • Don't be afraid to be brave with unusual color combinations.
  • Aim for flow, the items of your outfit need to look good together.
  • Following on from that, use your layering wisely. For example, a short, tight skirt over the top of a big puffy one that sticks out around the sides of it isn't going to look good. Try to pair items so they don't conflict messily.


  • Beware of clutter! It's one things to have a balanced look and another to be weighed down with a rat's nest of items.
  • Don't add items to your look just because they're the right colour. If they don't go with the other items, you're just going to look silly. For example; pairing a plaid lumberjack coat with an exotic skirt simply because they're both lilac, DON'T DO IT!
  • Don't be boring with color:
    • wearing the same color from head to toe is NEVER going to win unless your avatar has an interesting and clearly visible theme.
    • wearing just 2 colors is also unlikely to win, especially if you've matched your hair to your outfit. Pink + white all over = fail.
    • using the same color combinations as everyone else won't make you stand out. Try and steer clear of the black/red/gold or black/silver/red combos unless you have an original twist, they're just too over-done.
  • While items should have a certain degree of matching, don't get obsessive about it! We don't want you to end up looking like a monochromatic puddle, so have a bit of fashionable flair.
  • Don't go for a look that is too similar to a previous winner.
  • Don't use too many items from one set, as this lacks originality.
  • DO NOT snipe about other people's winning outfits. There will be no tolerance for rudeness or sour grapes in this thread. Not everyone's tastes are the same. Each winner is that admin's personal choice, not necessarily who looks the best on the entire site. So please don't take away someone's pleasure in winning by being grouchy because you personally don't like the outfit or because you think you should have won instead.

Best of luck to you all!

I've been doing pretty good. Been adjusting to moving back to the States pretty well. Just spent a lovely weekend with some friends from my schooling days. Now the Fall Season approaches and I'm just getting so excited. To actually be home for the holidays :D How... exciting. I'm bubbling up inside with joy.

How about you darling?

Here's your first winner of the new and improved Admin's Pick, it's Nephila:



Such a great seasonal avatar! I can almost feel that brisk autumnal breeze, swirling the leaves up into the air and snatching at the ends of your scarf. Just gone 5 o'clock and it's dark already! Time to get home, feet in some fluffy slippers and get the kettle on!

I really like the casual outfit here too, nice and cosy for a crisp autumn day. Excellent colour choices too. Awesome red hair shade, what are the codes for that colour, Neph? Fantastic natural red.

Now are they waiting on the station for their train home, or are they setting off on an exciting journey...what do you guys think?

OMG first winner of the new format!! HOW SHINY! Thank you.

The hair code is : #8b042f and #f08800 (deep pink and warm yellow) XD

With all the crazy space/monster outfits I do I wanted to try something I would wear in rl for once. Also all the people requesting more fall and back to school themes got me into challenge mode. I had it in my mind that she was getting the jump on her studies while waiting for the next bus.
