Judging Duration: Saturday, June 1st to Saturday, June 8th.
Desired Support:
Oceanmaster Assistance :
-Renaming of ship to "I Heart Mom"
-Distribution of prizes
Event Proposal:
Objective : Create a Mother's Day card with at least one Oceamaster featured within the card.
Rules :
-The art piece may be hand-drawn or digital.
-When submitting your entry, the entry must contain your pirate's name and their ocean, the event's name, and "2013" to prove that the art piece was created for this event.

How to enter :
Post your entry in this thread :
-Insert Seperate Entry thread-

Aloha! I think this is a wonderful idea for a event and it's so nice to see more people hosting "world" events!!! So THANK YOU!!!

The proposal looks wonderful! Just one thing you may need to reconsider is the renaming for the MB is a non-standard rename, and the OMs may not approve that, however you can also have a substitute possible rename "loving dreamer" or "loving Ma" (ma is mother in my mother language and also a standard fish name), some other possible fish names that would be a standard name: "loving/caring mama" (yay for research!!! - which i need to stop doing as i cannot afford that many RM's - but im totally gonna make a mama ship now ^_^ - for which i will hold you fully responsible!!!) or even a "tender kissing damsel"

Also, not sure which ocean is your main, but if it's cerulean where you will be hoarding prizes I would be happy to donate a regular sloop (second prize) (which can also be renamed by a OM) as well as some flower trinkets (will need to see how many extras i have, but may be able to get 3 ^_^ because mothers love flowers!! - you may also be able to ask the OM thats helping you if they would be willing to use their no card flowers and turn it to pink if you donate 3 regular flowers ^_^ )

A couple other ideas for prizes may be a some pink "herb/flower like" furni, once again I'd be willing to donate a planter of broom flowers on cerulean which can be added to second/third prize.
And (if cerulean doesnt work for donating prizes) I would be happy to donate making a digital avvy as a prize as well (guess i really like this event!!! But I want to participate so I'll just donate to the prize pool ^_^)

Oh! and you should see if the OM's would be willing to recolor the ships in "loving" motherly (pink/white/magenta/rose) colors ^_^

Also whether people are only allowed to enter one entry or multiple entries!!! And if you want in progress shots (the name card/in progress pictures will be challenging if you allow digital art...something to consider, and not sure how you will monitor this?)

I REALLY hope this event happens!!! It sounds like so much fun and being a mother myself I love the idea even more ^_^
Let me know if you want the donations Ill be away till the 9th but will check PM's as soon as I return ^_^

To be honest, I saw Dexla's story event and I thought to myself, "There needs to be more world events like these..." to make Puzzle Pirates just a tad bit more entertaining!

Silly me though! I didn't come up with the idea until recently. So I immediately emailed a revised version of my proposal (The one that you see above) because of the minimum 2 week wait if you'd like an Oceanmaster to help out. If I do receive an email back with a yes, I'll be sure to ask them about the colour change to something more 'festive' to the holiday. As well as mention changing the name to something more standard, such as "Mothers Day" or "Loving Mom".

Woops! Being new to the forums, I didn't even state what ocean I was from in my signature! I'm from Meridian!

Oh, and you don't have to donate any prizes! Hehe, really sweet of you though. :)
But uhm, I'll keep you up to date as well, seeing how you look like you definitely want to help out with my (first) event. If it does happen, and if you'd still like to donate an item to offer as a prize, I'll gladly add it onto the prizes to offer to contestants. I just hope it doesn't cause too much trouble though, seeing how we're on two different oceans.

One more thing! When you said 'digital avvie', did you mean that you would be willing to create an image for the event as an introduction? That would be really awesome to have cute image as a cute cover!

And happy (very) early Mother's Day! I hope your kids pull something really special for you!

aloha again :) unfortunately i wont be able to make any event art as I'll be away for a while and working on moving soon, with digital avvy i meant one of the styles of avatars i sell on the forums :) (You can take a look by following the link in my signature)
But let me know if i can help with prizes on cerulean (maybe ask the helping OM if that is available) also, feel free to re-email the edited version of the event!! Just write in the subject that its a revised submission ^_^)

Ooh! Got cha! I didn't know we could send a revised version! :)

But wow! If the event does happen, could I talk to you about your prizes later? I think some people would love a digital avatar by you. I know I like your art! Especially after I got to see the samples. o:

Okay! Well the event wasn't even planned to start until the 13th, so of course I'll keep you updated when you come back from your trip!

Have a safe trip. :)

Be glad you got Booful on your side. She is one hell of an artist, and one dedicated event attendee.

I too love the event idea. Great work!

Ooh, too bad she's gone for the week!
I'm sure she would've been happy to see such a positive compliment about her artwork. :)

But thanks! Any chance do you know how long an email usually takes to receive a reply?
