Please note: If there are NO MORE cape submissions before WEDNESDAY 5TH APRIL then we will go to vote on the capes that have been submitted so far. I'll explain the exact voting procedure when the time comes.

Thanks to all those who have submitted their designs!

Don't you dare make the vote for the new cape in one of the two weeks I'm not here. :P

Bah! I suppose it'll have to be a three-week voting period, to make sure everyone who wants to gets a chance.

Wot??
Me, contribute?
Don't be daft, I just like picking holes in everything everyone else does!


More seriously, I'd probably design one that looked a lot like the original, cos I am an old conservative git that resists change :oops:

A reminder: the competition closes soon unless I get more designs submitted *stares at Klok and Muppet*

I have no objections to a design that closely resembles (or is identical to) the original one, as we don't have the original on that thread yet (whoops).

In the meantime, you have a reprieve as I have been in Scotland since Wednesday and haven't had a chance to get on here to put an end to the voting. Lys has made known a desire to submit a cape herself.

Since Factions is released on April 28th, which is to say in under three weeks' time, I will be closing the competition and starting voting on the 23rd and the final cape choice will be instigated on the 27th, coinciding with the preorder opening of Factions. Thus if there are more than two more submissions to come, these will stand for a shorter period in order to fit them in. Please let me have your cape submission as soon as possible if you want it to get in before the deadline.

Cheers,
Mori

I have worn every design so far made with pride. Maybe, like Champ, I'm just not fussy. I consider proudly displaying one's affiliation more important than aesthetics, except in extreme cases such as my mesmer's black dress (where very few capes look appropriate at all).

My ranger and monk have always worn the cape; my mesmer has only used one of the submitted capes (the darker one) cause nothing really goes well with a black mesmer attire (as Mori mentioned).


I hate not wearing it on the two chars that usually do have it showing. Makes them look naked. :( But I can't stand PINK. Sorry, just can't.


*glares at Lys*

I bet it'll be the most voted cape, too, cause I don't like it. :shock:

Thanks Elle ^__^ I already had very positive feedback from our male guildmembers ! *reads that anonymous death treatening PM again*
I'm glad everyone is receptive to art and what it expresses =D
I called it "Return of the Spring! Let your Feelings Blossom!"

And the cape design is not THAT pink Anya! Actually, it's lavanda/carmina which are less flashy tones. Only the emblem is quite pinky so that it shines on a PvP cape (no you can't hide it in pvp Kivvy =D).
I have a true sparkling pink design though but it will better suit the summer period ^-^

I apologize to people who can't wear the cape though. If everyone doesn't feel comfortable with that design then it missed its purpose -_-

Such an abomination!!

I know you can't hide it in PvP. But I haven't done any PvP since I got my emote. And even if I did, I wouldn't now, cause I'm on strike.

Yuk.
Looks like someone took the joke cape made a while back and thought "how can I make this look even worse".

I quit PvP arena after it came on, cos it looks that bad to me :(

Someone please design a next one quick so I can play the game again!

I have to admit, I think this current cape is pretty horrible too. Sorry Lys :( (I still wear it though)

Klok's up next, if he can be bothered. Otherwise maybe you should submit one, muppet my lad :)

In that case, I will simply rule that the next cape design I receive (from someone who hasn't already done one) comes into force on Friday, and thereafter no further submissions will be considered. So if you're burning to get your design in there, hurry it up! :)
