Get dressed up for this year’s award ceremony

This year is our 20th annual Awards Ceremony! And we’re planning on making it grander and more member-focused than ever before.

As part of the festivities, we’re inviting everyone to change their forum avatar to match the spirit of the awards. And that means: Get spiffy. Just like the Oscars, we’re planning on really classing up this place and changing into tuxedos, gowns, and other eye-catching dress-wear.

Our ceremony will begin in late June, which means you have a few weeks to get ready. But if you decide to dress your character in formal attire, and that requires some image manipulation, we’re encouraging you to get your request in to the Image Collective Graphics Requests forum early, so they have plenty of time to take a look and let you know what’s possible and what’s not.

Click here to go to the Graphics Requests forum now. Open a new thread with the “character” prefix and make sure you provide a link to your current character portrait, as well as some examples of formal attire you’d like to consider.

Please be aware that not all characters will be able to be transformed if they’re an alien species. In that case, you may want to consider bringing the actor behind your character portrait to the event, instead of your alien character.

I’ve already had my fitting — what do you think?
