How to enter:
  • Decorate real eggs pirate-style (Contrary to the title of this event, your eggs need not have faces on them, although they can if you want.)
Would decorating a real egg in the fashion of eggs that were designed for the easter egg event count as pirate-style?


Sure. If your design is clearly referencing something from the YPP universe, it counts as piratey.

Just want to remind you that you will have to make a new parrot egg this year for this contest. Progress pictures are required to ensure that entries are new creations, not things that have been saved for years.

Hmm, I just found this event and it looks very appealing... I am going to have to break out my skillz and see if I can make something suitable for this event! I have quite a few ideas and I hope I can implement them all!

Yay for randomly following links...

Wow. I'm shocked when I saw this I actually said wow out loud. Great minds think alike, I just don't have the same time. :P

I know my post doesn't really make sense, but some people will know what I'm talking about.

I'm guessing you were also thinking of running an egg-decorating contest, but didn't have time to do so? If it makes you feel better, I wouldn't have had time either except that I wrote up this event over 6 months ago, long before I started my current job, complete with 2 hours of daily commuting.

I hope you can find time to enter at least. I always admire Shortyjack artwork.

Okay, so we can decorate the egg, and add things to the egg, but not dioramas. got it. if i was to, let's say get a really small egg and put lots of detail in, would it get a lot of points? oh, and if the egg is only painted and/or placed in egg-clothes, would the in-progress picture be a half-painted etc. version?

Aaghimonfire of Viridian, and sometimes Dragice aswell. I started that trend, but it does seem to have backfired on me, as i can't seem to use it anymore...

This contest was designed with chicken eggs in mind. While I won't deduct points for using smaller eggs, you won't gain anything that way, either. You may, however, lose points for using ostrich eggs or other large ova.

 
oh, and if the egg is only painted and/or placed in egg-clothes, would the in-progress picture be a half-painted etc. version?


Yes. I need to see a photo from before the egg is finished. That means partly-painted, half-dressed, half-sequin-covered, etc.

No, only one prize per person.

Easter is still a week away, and most people decorate eggs with their families just before the holiday, so I expect to get plenty of late entries. Similarly, the pumpkin carving contest got most of its entries at the deadline as people waited until Halloween (or the day before it) to carve.

Great guess! I threw the idea around last year, but since I got a new job, I haven't had time to do much. I would love to enter, but that still depends on time (or Gothmog getting on my case).

Are electronics allowed on your eggs such as L.E.D's to make things light up or glow a little or are those things not allowed?

If you can attach them to the egg, sure, you can use LEDs.

Decorate real eggs pirate-style


Do they have to be "Pirate Style" or can they be regular easter eggs? Because i have some creative ideas, but none that match the Piratey theme. :|

They have to, in some way, relate to YPP or pirates in general.

I wondered if there was a timeframe for judging? I noticed the event coordinator is running another event from last November that hasn't been judged because of real life time issues (completely understandable). But will this also take 4 months?

I'm sorry I haven't yet found time to complete the 100 or so hours of mind-numbing reading and rereading for the Cursed event. I'm sorry I put things like my job (which takes 10 hours a day, including commute) and sleep ahead of a forum event that I initially ran when I had fewer demands on my time.

Don't worry, art is much quicker to judge than text. This one won't take long to judge. And I'll never be running another story writing event, so you don't have to worry about that judging timeframe repeating itself, either.

Polly,
probably done with events for a good long while after all the "thanks" she's gotten

Just to clarify. If I paint a RL egg like my in-game egg. Its valid?

Oy. Thank you all, but I really didn't mean to fish for complements - I do know that some people are genuinely thankful. Please keep this thread for questions about this event.

I know that post of mine didn't belong here (Nut gave me quite the talking to when I got home from work). I just get frustrated by the complaints sometimes and this time I stupidly posted in anger. It won't happen again.

So giving you an ice cream sandwich qualifies as a talking to? Neat. I'll have to add "talking to" to the shopping list. :-p

No, your eggs have to be created for this contest. No recycling eggs from other events.

(Posting this while the pictures are uploading to Flickr)

I'm absurdly pleased with mine. It's like very low-rent Fabergé, if Fabergé used stick-on rhinestones, children's water-soluble paint, glitter glue, and metallic embroidery thread. (I'm sure he would have given the chance. It was a real time-saver, and much easier than smithing gold and appraising actual gems.)

Thanks for running this, Polly. It's the first non-doodle visual-art contest I've entered, and I surprised myself with what I can do when I put in the time/planning/effort/patience. Good luck to my fellow contestants - some of you blew me away with your entries.
