Announcing the Hairstyle Design Contest! - Blue - 07-29-2015 09:20 AM

Read on!

İmage

Adventurers of Eorzea are constantly ringing the Crystal Bell to summon Jandeaine, the artistic and talented Elezen who is quite possibly the busiest person in all the realm. The travelling aesthetician answers the call at the drop of a dime, and the time has come to give this stylist a bit of help. Don't worry, we won't be asking anyone to pick up a makeup kit and a pair of elegant shearing tools (think of the chaos!). Instead, we'd like to give Jandeaine new ideas for hairstyles by having adventurers submit their own hairstyle creations! The development and operations team will be selecting the finalists and then taking it to the forums for players to vote on their favorite male and female hairstyle. The two winning hairstyles will then be implemented into the game!

I am so excited for this, it's unreal! There are quite a few hairstyles that I enjoy using in-game, but there's a specific hairstyle that I use for K'heyo that is the only one (thus far) that I believe solidly suits his personality. I'm super pumped for the chance that one of the winning hairstyles will suit him equally as well! I can't wait to see everyone's submissions!

I AM SO GONNA ENTER THIS. OMFG.

to everyone wishing to make an entry, remember to not post them here or anywhere else until the results are out, or SE might disqualify you. Use the official forums (and if SE puts your hairstyle there, post a link here!)!

Actually, it looks like you email them with the appropriate information.

And, in a burst of inspiration and boredom, I MSPainted a hairdo and submitted it in the span of half an hour or so. It's a hairdo I'd love to see, but I'm sure folks will throw out something much more impressive both in idea and in display. Still, I figured I'd give it a try before my crippling self-doubt caught up with me.

... Now to curl up into a corner and wonder why the hell I sent a half-assed MSPaint hairstyle for this competition.

Why do I still live in this shithole that people call "Italy"? Sigh.

What I meant is, as written in the contest rules, that they will select the hairstyles they are sent (via e-mail) and put them on the official forums for people to vote through Likes. If your hairstyle ends up in a moderator/dev post, put the link here was my suggestion.
