Congratz Katze your Helm is awesome, and those shoulderplates, just wow. My favs definitely the blue one but I may use the rainbow one from time to time. I'd be interested if you have more armor designs in mind.
Are you entering the Rainy Day one?

You should look at the original design if you like that, because they changed them a bit. The rainbow helms nose in not meant to be green and they changed some of the details completely ( all helms basic design, white chocolate instead of milk chocolate on the strawberry helm, changing color scheme on rainbow helm, omitting the golden waffle color in the mint helm for the dark chocolate, and even leaving the nose piece completely off the blue raspberry one. Whatevs, I still won, I'm not bummed but I did those things for a reason.

I do plan to do a rainy day entry but I need to think about it. I might go cultural, fantasy, or even just an item. I don't know yet, what do we not already have coat, umbrella, and boot wise?


Took a bit of hocus pocus, but for anyone wondering the precise differences.
I dont even think I saw all of them
Maybe i did.
Who knows

That must be frustrating. I don't think they should've messed with your design. The only thing I could guess as to why they changed the Rainbow helms nose was maybe they thought it would blend in the with the red too much. I don't know why they felt it needed to be such a bold contrast. I honestly think it makes sense to have red on orange since its the natural order of colors in the rainbow. As for rainwear Im not sure. Maybe some thing futuristic or alien?(loves sci-fi styles whee ) Some avante garde fashion stuff looks pretty alien.lol

If you look at my design all the colors are arranged in order, and the red is a more magenta color to flow into the purple correctly... I wish they had not changed it, especially leaving the nose off the blue one that's just lazy.
I'm sorry. I wasn't critisizing I was just trying to understand what might have beeen going through their minds at the time. That was sorta messed up of them to leave the nose off the blue Raspberry helm. I sometimes wonder if they kinda view Cross Stitch submissions as direct competition.
New cute food items are always welcome. heart heart

No I know you weren't, I was just pointing the pattern out. The release date is strange to me, I think they put too much on their plates and rushed to get this done. We have had a lot going on this month, and Gaia seems to over stretch it's resources all the time. I hope they don't next time.

Go compare the rainbow one sweatdrop They do say they will interpret your design how they'd like to, but the blue helm is completely missing the nose piece.

FINALLY WE GOT THE UPDATE!
But yeaaah, I'm totally disappointed with it; the lack of quantity of items, and the fact that ((% of what er got, today is so floofy and things I avoid wearing on my avi. And I just don't like the only "masculine" armor item Gaia threw in. Sorry, whoever created it. It's just not my style, just like the frilly froufrous.

I just expected a LOT more items.

These items made my teeth hurt.

I think the winners were all very good or at least interesting choices and if someday I want to make a sugary sweet avi, I will at least know where to start.
