Monster Costume is the fourth contest announced for CrosStitch.


Our next CrosStitch contest should hit the shops around Halloween, so we've selected a suitably ghastly theme: we cordially invite you to design your own Monster Costume! Make it as cute or horrifying as you'd like-- this theme is wide-open, so feel free to get creative.

Contest Info pt1Edit

- Each submission requires an entry fee of 10,000 Gold.

- One grand prize winner will get their submission made into a Gaia item, plus 20,000 Gaia Gold (double their entry fee). Of course, they'll get every variation of their item for free, too

- Contest ends on September 6th, 2012 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

Since the winners of my next CrosStitch contest will be released around Halloween, why not choose an appropriately creepy theme? This time around, I invite you to submit your original designs for monster costumes. Make them cute, terrifying, sexy or any combination of the above-- as always, creativity will be valued above all else. Gaia's artists will select the finest entries and turn them into items for my shop!

For all the rules and details, visit the contest page.

Gaians, greetings! With Halloween right around the corner, I'm very pleased to bring the winners of our last CrosStitch contest to the shop! As you might remember, the contest asked creative Gaians to design the Monster Costume of their dreams. They could've been scary, cute, or anywhere in-between.

Narrowing the wonderful entries down to pick winners is never easy, and this time was no exception. There were many, many very creative entries all across the spectrum, but the winners have just hit the racks at CrosStitch:

Visit CrosStitch!

You can learn a little more about the winners and their designs on the winners page. What's more, there are a few extra spooky costumes that have just arrived at Barton Boutique, and some treats for your sweet tooth at Buttercup Cafe!

As for the next contest-- it begins now. Visit the contest page for full details, of course, but here's a hint: Winter Coats! (I suppose that's a pretty revealing hint, but yes, design the Winter Coat of your dreams!) I'm looking forward to your entries!
