    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    This Halloween Keisuke decided he would thank the captain for his hard work by setting up an indoor pumpkin garden.

    The tree isn't doing so well due to the indoor conditions.

    The couple of Reddrums that were in the Bunkhouse beforehand had to be fenced off so they wouldn't disturb the plants.

    Sorry for the last-minute entry, I have a habit of procrastinating. If I happen to place first, I would prefer to have the second place prize.

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    Thanks for hosting! For this contest, I went for a Dragon Shrine. Upon entering, one can already feel the presence of the dragon. With the dragon obelisks and flame braziers, one can't miss the feeling of the majestic flying beast. Those who enter can surround the eternal flame in the center of the room. They can sit on the greet pillows next to the lotus roots. On the main wall, plaques of the great dragons are visible for all to worship. On the side wall, there are plenty of hanging dragon flames. Underneath the fires, there are dragon eggs and heads of the great dragons.

    -EDIT- For the requirements:

    The orange requirement can be found on the carpet, and flames all across the room.
    The green pillows are on the floor. Visible in all 3 pictures.
    My grouper (Thanks to Avery Court Grace) is named Lady Sparky, seen in the second picture.

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    Every year when the air outside becomes chilly and the leaves start to change color, the climate around skull island gets a bit more festive! Everyone can appreciate the streamers, balloons, and jack-o-lanterns, but nothing is quite as exciting as the arrival of the present boxes. Pirates from all corners of the spiral (including me) halt everything and scour for these neatly wrapped gifts of gold, furniture, eyepatches, rental mounts, and, if you're lucky, pets. As any good present-hunter knows, finding the boxes isn't what's difficult about present-hunting. The real challenge lies in keeping your backpack from overflowing with booty!
    With my bank and shared bank already at maximum capacity, and my attic overflowing, I could only see but one solution: crowding everything into my bunkhouse and having a party! To start the party I unloaded all the gold that I had gained from my present-hunting (in the form of piles of gold bought from Aquila) and gave the responsibility of protecting it to all of the pets that I had obtained from the present boxes. Next, I unloaded all of the pillows that I had received from the birthday pillow fight contest to create a cozy corner for my companions who wanted to rest from running after present boxes. This was much appreciated by Catbeard, so as a thank you he went wranglin' and caught me a reddrum as a gift! While Catbeard contemplated the dilemma of having to resist eating the reddrum, I treated the rest of my crew to a birthday buffet filled with all of the food we had gathered! The party provided a nice break from present-hunting, but it was short lived as my backpack was now emptied and ready to be refilled with even more birthday booty!

    Happy Birthoween!
    Sly Jacob Johansson

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    Alright, guys, I could say that the best should be saved for last, so if this entry is the final one for this contest, here it is! Before I start off my story, let me list my prize preferences:

    1. Second place prize with Armada code, because pack companions are hard to come by, amirite? (Also, CROWNS)
    2. Hoodoo Bundle, even though I already have one, haha. Would give to friend maybe
    3. Third place prize for Autumn Leaves mount

    Now then, without further ado, let me begin my witchdoctor's pre-Halloween "Tale of Woe."

    The Story of This Witchdoctor's Tale of Woe
    “Avery, you fool!” the witchdoctor exclaimed,
    For his own impatience cannot be restrained,
    As he looked at the mess his dorm room contained.
    You see, this fellow, he went out one day,
    “Avery, please watch over my room, okay?”
    But when he returned, no how, no way!
    Did his lab get flooded while he was away!
    Gadgets, gears, gizmos, you name it,
    Used by this genius with the greatest wit,
    As he studies every single science bit.
    Archaeology, biology, mineralogy,
    Even this genius prides on studying technology!
    But as you can see, this lab we know,
    Is now our hero’s Tale of Woe.
    “Where is there a leak?” you choose to inquire.
    Under the garden, arranged by a wire.
    For this mad witchdoctor chose to garden,
    “All in one lab? I beg your pardon?”
    For you see, this Halloween, he was tasked,
    “Grow us some pumpkins, pretty please?” they asked.
    “How many pumpkins? I have to know!”
    “One hundred and more! For our Spooktacular show!”
    That was the request he cannot blow,
    Which is not the case for this Tale of Woe.
    And now to the present, the issue lies,
    In this chamber, where the lab resides.
    Towards the middle, the garden you see,
    The pipe has ruptured! It cannot be!
    Tried as he may to clog that hole
    With the green pillows he had in stow
    But alas, the pillows? No use! Oh no!
    For this poor witchdoctor’s Tale of Woe.
    Out come the Groupers, one by one!
    “Come on, guys, let’s have some fun!”
    Led by a Heck Fish, dangerous of them all,
    This one's known to make your skin crawl.
    From the leak they come in full fish swarm,
    To feast on the witchdoctor’s mini farm.
    All these pumpkins, grown so neat,
    Now to be gone, as the Groupers’ treat.
    “Summon Gracie! Summon the Gator! Summon all help!” the witchdoctor said.
    It’s all his fault, for he knows, his lab and confidence are now marked dead.
    For if this witchdoctor so planned ahead,
    Then his lab would still be pristine instead.
    Hours pass and go on by,
    Until flood no more and all is dry.
    Given this mess, it goes to show,
    Never trust Avery in this Tale of Woe.

    Notes:

    • The Orange objects are the pumpkins in the garden, and/or the molten core of the forge
    • The Green pillows are piled symmetrically to clog the pipe drain located in the pumpkin garden
    • The Groupers and Heck Fish are placed about the room as a part of the rhyming story of the Tale of Woe.

    I hope my entry suffices, and I wish everyone a Happy Halloween!

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    These "Behind the Scenes" screenshots don't count towards the judging/voting process, but I definitely ran into similar predicament creating my piece just like @Nojow did!

    Thank you for the opportunity, Willowdreamer! This was a great opportunity to put my creative chops to use in decorating! Looking forward to the next decorating contest when I can! ^^

    On a side note, would you mind leaving a summary of sorts to each of us winners of what the judging panel liked about each of our entries? It would be nice for note taking for the next decorating contest and look for info to improve with. Thanks, again!

    Interesting suggestion, Crushcut -- I'm not sure I'd be able to do that. I can't say for sure the panel will be the same next time around, so the criteria used this time may not matter in the future.

    The summary doesn't have to be based on the contest structure and criteria. I remember I placed third in a graphics contest hosted by Milt some time back, and he provided individual summaries to all of us winners perfectly well highlighting each of our strengths.

    http://www.pirate101central.com/foru...688#post217688

    I would like to read a summation of my entry as well as everyone else's to see what I've done well to please the panel, and how I can improve and what to work on for the next decorating contest if possible. I hope the judge(s) won't mind providing said feedback as well. I hope this is possible!
