I've been thinking it's about time for me to make a runway thread, and we've got our challenge from jelly to hit 150k threads, so here we go! It's going to take me a little while to get everything organized and filled out, so please bear with me.

Gingerbread cutie!

This avie really puts me in the mood for the holidays. She's so snuggly warm inside while you can see the snow falling on the other side of her window - I can perfectly imagine her sitting on the floor, covered in blankets, reading all night with a cup of hot cocoa.

Besides, you guys know me - I like the color brown! Chexala and I are even wearing the same general color scheme right now, but she's managed to put such a different spin on her own style. I definitely would not have thought to pair most of these items together, but the whole look works. This avie is such a wonderful mix of real world fashion and Mene-world fantasy.

Great job, Chexala!

This is a magical avatar, it's so beautiful. Who wouldn't want to be right where that avatar is? A lovely lush courtyard; overlooking the water and facing the sunset, and with an outdoor fireplace too! I could sit there watching as the sun went down and the fireflies blinked into life.

It looks like Chex is having a romantic celebratory evening too, she's looking as elegant and beautiful as the setting. An absolutely gorgeous avatar, congratulations!

After scrambling around like a maniac all week, I'd dearly love for this mage to whisk me away to the land of dreams, or to the depths of space.. wherever she is, it looks delightful to me right now! ;D

Very lovely avatar, Chexala - congrats! :)

Event Avatar Contests

Festival of Winter Nights 2014 contestX

Round 1: Isle of Cacao

"Chex is dressed up like a waitress at a seaside chocolate cafe, where tourists can sample all sorts of chocolate treats, from hot cocoa to chocolate cake to chicken mole. She is wearing the mandatory chocolate cake hat which is part of the cafe uniform, and ready to deliver cake to a customer. :3"

Round 2: Gwydion

"Chex is wearing a Merak-inspired dress with lots of flowing layers of green and gold, including Merak's peacock feather train. She's out for a stroll along the promenade, appreciating the cherry blossoms blowing in the wind."

Round 3: Navarro

"Things got quite exciting in town last night. Probably too exciting. Last thing Chex remembers, she was on a winning streak at the cards table and ordering rounds at the bar. Now she's waking up alone in the desert, with just her suitcase, a raging headache, and a loosing hand of cards. Plus her skirt is a wreck! How did that even happen? The day is getting hotter by the minute, there's not a scrap of shade in sight, and she has no idea where she is or which way to go. Today is not going to be a good day."

Round 4: Vile

"Pity the poor traveler who has to travel during a Vile winter, especially at night. It's been a long day and now it's starting to snow hard, but at least Chex has reached a shrine where hopefully she can take shelter until morning."

Round 5: Tapio

"Tapio is known for the blood lotuses which grow around the rivers and pools of the island. Tapi!Chex has trekked out into the jungle to gather lotuses, which have both healing and poisoning abilities and fetch a nice price down at the ports."

The Craziest Tea Party Guest EVER! Form
My Crazy Tea Party Guest's Name: Harried Kappa Mama
Tell us about you Crazy Tea Party Guest: Poor kappa mama, she loves her little babies, but they're so full of energy and excitement that she hardly ever gets the chance to sit down, put her feet up, and have a cup of tea. She was hopping she'd get the chance to sit with some tea at the tea party, but so far she's spent the whole time chasing after her rugrats. Some things never change.
Most importantly, how do they take their tea?: With a strong splash of sake to sooth her nerves. ;)

☛ Layering Tricks and Ideas —————
The Planet-Pond: A Tutorial
1. 2. 3. 4.
  1. Start with the full-length sky backgrounds from the Space Expedition CI. The lower part of the planet will become your pond.
  2. Choose a second, partial-length background to become your sky. In this example, I’ve used the forest from Dryad’s Hollow.
  3. Now layer in the rocks which will form the edges of your pond. My favorite combo is the floor rocks from Calesco’s caverns (the foreground rocks) and the rocky boarder from Oriental Garden (the back edge). Other good choices can be found in Reef Explorer and Monkey Business. (There are probably more rocks that I’ve either forgotten about or don’t have.)
  4. Now experiment with extras to flesh out your scene. Here I’ve used various plants, extra rocks, and a lamp. However, there are lots of background and floor items you can use to create unique scenes.
  5. This is just one way to use this layering, so don't be afraid to experiment! Below is the first avatar I made using this trick (which inspired jellysundae to make a new layer specifically for layering skies), as well as several other examples I've seen that showcase the wide variety of different possibilities.

    (In order: Chexala, Suona, neller, and CrimsonShadow)

Thanks Kent! You should definitely make a runway thread! I got motivated to make mine because of the 150k challenge also.

It's been a long time, but I'm slowly updating this thread. So far, I wrote up a little layering tutorial for the Planet-pond. Let me know what you think of it!

Upcoming updates will include: moar hair colors, moar personal avies, moar avies from other people, and updated contest submissions. First I have to get everything organized on my computer, and then upload it to my albums.

I also thought I'd start sharing screenshots of my equipped items when I make an avi I particularly like. Not sure if that will be interesting to other people, but it will help me recreate avis if I ever feel like coming back to them.
