Welcome to The Daily Neopets' brand new official contest, The Runway!

Dress to Impress will be used to create and share your entries. Once your best entry has been chosen, submit it through a Private Message to deboratibi. Please use the following entry form when submitting your entry for the current theme. Anyone with a TDN forums account may enter. As this is an official contest we cannot offer prizes in the form of items or neopoints. However, don't let that discourage you! We have something special prepared for The Runway winners! Thank you to the owner of Dress to Impress for allowing us to run this contest!

 

Please scroll down to see the current contest theme.

 

* To enter the contest and/or vote, you must be registered to The Daily Neopets Forum AND you must validate your account. *

Otherwise, you won't be able to post or send Private Messages. If you don't have an account, click here and follow the steps. It's quick and easy!

 

HOW TO ENTER:

  • Create your entry at Dress to ImpressYou are free to choose ANY pet and ANY items from the database, unless otherwise stated. You may also choose to enter your own pets' outfit, if that's what you prefer.
  • Fill in the entry form below and send it to deboratibi via Private Message.
  • Make sure you are logged in/registered to The Daily Neopets Forum.


ENTRY FORM:

Entry Name or Title:

Outfit Image:

Outfit Page/Animations Link:

Character Story (optional):

 

Click below for an example of how the entry form should be filled in:

Spoiler

 

  • If you're confused about what "Outfit Image" and "Outfit Page/Animations Link" are, please see this post.
     
  • "Oh no, my Outfit Image looks weird/different!"

Some items don't show up as they should in the still image (they either change colours - this usually happens with Dyeworks items; or they just look very different in general). This makes some people unhappy for obvious reasons, but the solution is quite simple! First, whenever you're ready to send the links, make sure to check what the still image looks like. If it looks different, please ask deboratibi to fix it (a screenshot of the animation will be taken and cropped to the appropriate size). You can do this yourself, if you prefer. If you don't say anything, we will assume that you're okay with how it looks. Also, make sure to tell deboratibi before the contest starts because your entry can't be altered afterwards!

  • No voting for yourself!
  • Edits to your existing entry can only be made during the submission dates.

  • Entry must fit the chosen theme. If not, you will be asked to change your entry.
  • Unconverted pets may be entered!
  • Only one pet per entry unless stated otherwise.
  • If you would like to edit your submission, you may do so in the initial PM you sent.


VOTING:

ENTRY FORM:

Entry Name or Title:

Outfit Image:

Animations Link:

Character Story (optional):


 

I'm working on an entry, but because I'm a novice at using the DTI site I have to ask newbish questions now because I don't know how to do things :* ...

 

So...what do you mean by animations link, what is that and how do I get to it? Is that the individual item things in the SWF links section? I am planning on having an animated item in my entry so I'm going to need this? Also, for the outfit image, this is going to be one of the links in the download/sharing section, right? But, which one and what coding option?

 

Sorry for being such a newb, but I've no idea what I'm doing, will there be some helpful instructions added to these contests, for people like me who can't find their bum with both hands and a flashlight? :shiftyeyes_anim:

You can find everything you need for the form on the Sharing tab:
WpaPGRZ.png
 
The link for animations would be the one found under the Outfit Page part. That links to the outfit's page, which allows you to see the animations. Like this: Outfit page
 
I'm not sure what size Deb prefers, but the outfit image can be found on the same tab, likely the Medium image size. You would just copy the url and either paste the URL in the form, or use the Image option in the message to paste the URL and it will show the image.
 
As far as coding option, using plain is best if you use the easy editor for your posts, instead of seeing the actual code (The little toggle button is the top left grey light switch button), since you can just press the button that looks like a picture and paste the URL and it does the coding for you. If you just paste urls in the non-BBC code viewing version, it will automatically make it a link when you post/send a message.


I didn't trip, I was just testing gravity. Yep... it still works.

Awesome, thank you very much, Spritzie :D I guessed wrong with the animations bit then. ><

Thank you, Spritzie!  :thumbsup:

 

Yes, the Medium size is preferred, but it's not something to worry much about since I can resize the images if necessary. What matters the most to me is the animation link (or outfit page)!

I don't quite understand this, do we use the Dress to Impress to dress a pet that we own with items we own, or do we pick random items and random pets?

The purpose of using Dress to Impress is to have access to any pet and items you think will fit the selected theme best, since sticking with only what you have would be very difficult and limiting (at least for most people). Feel free to use any pet or items you wish, whether you own them or not!  :)
