It's that month of the year again... the spookiest month of them all, October! So, what better way to celebrate than holding a contest? A fight... to the death!

Okay, well, not really. This is the SG Spookfest. You'll be submitting your pieces of content - your talents, so to speak. The rules are as follows:

• You must submit one piece of user created content. A talent of yours, something you drew, a screenshot that you're proud of- this can be literally anything, as long as you made it, you didn't steal it, and it isn't against forum/discord rules.
• The content must be submitted on this post. There is no format, just send it and hope for the best. If you want to enter into your spot, but don't have any content ready, feel free to post and then edit in your talent at a later time. By posting, you consider yourself an entrant, and will be judged on the 21st.
• Submissions are open until October 21st. Anything posted after this is considered disqualified, and not allowed.

------------------------------

"But Ivy!" You say. "Why even bother with this? What's the point?" Well! Let me just let you in on the grand prizes we have for this month's show!

Upon winning first place, you will receive:

• A custom, award winning discord role. Now, you may be thinking: "This is one of the most useless prizes of this contest!" - but fret not! Winning this role will forever allow you to change your nickname, whenever you want, for the rest of your breathing days. As a bonus, the role will be displayed above everyone else until October 31st.
• Three Mann Co. Supply Crate keys.
• One Unusual Taunt: Bad Pipes, with the effect Screaming Tiger

Don't think you'll win? Don't worry, you're covered! Anyone who participates in this month's event will receive a Haunted Pocket Horsemann, free of charge.

---------------

"But Ivy!" You say once again. "How do I know if this event is even fair? What if you just pick your favorite person and ignore the other submissions? Well! That's why we have a scoresheet!

Your submission will be judged based off of effort, thought, originality, creativity, quality, and more. The judges, being @Ivy, @LunaFromMars, and @Lokiano will be provided with a score sheet, and whoever wins the highest possible score will win first place. There is no second or third place score. On October 21st, the winner will be selected and posted on this thread, and on the discord.

--------

~~THINGS TO NOTE~~

• If there is a tiebreaker, the contestants left will be given 24hours to one up their previous submission with a new one and DM it to Ivy directly. From there, scoring will be done again.
• If you happen to be banned from the discord, you are not disqualified from winning the non-discord prizes.
• Participation Horsemann's will be provided on the 21st, not when you first submit.

If you have any questions or concerns, please directly message them to myself, either on discord or via the forums. Thank you!

----

Now, move along! Go, get to work! Good luck, everyone. Try not to die.

Rats I wanted to enter but guess I can't, or I can do something else. Why? Because I wanted to dress up for Halloween again and it's pretty s c a r y. Good luck whoever is entering



edit : I just came up with something time to splat shy and grt 4th place again or was it 5th
https://clyp.it/hxu0a0x2?token=634a2b5e5edb144c8adcd85bac5ce750 Violin 1 for anime song
Okay, here comes the list of excuses : I haven't played the violin for 5 months, I am still a beginner, I wasn't able to do the last part because it was actually too high for me to play, I play on a small violin, the violin I had was broken-ish, I wasn't able to do Violin 2 because it was out of my league, it sounds bad because I was shaking, and eh. In all seriousness, I wouldn't say it's perfect but I tried. The only reason why I decided to enter was because a certain someone was performing outside with his electric violin. It freaking moved me and wanted to start playing violin again. But, I hope you all enjoy. As I said, it's not perfect but one day, if I have time, I will work on my skills or maybe get a freaking new violin or dump the violin and start smashing the keyboard that I have no clue how to use.

PS : Once it's Halloween, I will show what I was originally planning to do

Does it have to be halloween related? Is there a theme?
It's a talent show - it can be anything!

• You must submit one piece of user created content. A talent of yours, something you drew, a screenshot that you're proud of- this can be literally anything, as long as you made it, you didn't steal it, and it isn't against forum/discord rules.

Another note - by posting a comment, you're considered to be entering, with the exceptions to posts like the one made by @faris. Make sure to edit and add your submission to your post before the deadline.

I wanna join! Now there’s no theme, but is there something you guys would prefer to see from us? Like specifically tf2 related art, Halloween themes and the like? Also you never mentioned if we had to make it on the spot right now specifically for this contest, could I post a piece of art I’ve already made for something else?

edit: please let me know way beforehand if you would like to have me draw an original piece just for this contest, i got a lot of classes and not a lot of time for personal works.

I asked Ivy if we can "play music" and it was a yes. So, non-tf2 related should be allowed , from all the info I got. And this is my opinion, I think reusing old art is kind of "dull", if one of us saw it already that is. But, as long as it's yours, you should be able to submit old artwork.

(might edit this when I wake up because potato brain right now)

You're good! I liked faris' post to indicate that he was right, but meh. Thanks for the entry!

As a reminder, the deadline for entrants is on the 21st. You all have 5 days remaining. Good luck, as always.

I decided to roll out with my mediocre Source Filmmaker talent, so I have decided to show you an art piece of High Inquisitor Whitemane, a priestess of the Light who leads the activities in the Scarlet Monastery.

As a bonus, I'm also going to show you a bit of her personality of a small animation test by me, which was done a month ago.

The contest has come to a close! Entries are now no longer allowed, and a winner has been chosen. Here are the final scores:

@shy had the lowest score, with a mere 43 points.
@Sin came in with 52 points, just 9 points above @shy.
@Nuclear Nun topped out at 68 points.
@clemarchy made it out with just 93 points.
• Our fourth top score was @faris, who played violin, and scored at 100 points.
@DemonicDisaster scored at third place, with 118 points.
• At second place, @Brightwater Juniper had 121 points.


...And finally, the person with the top final score was @fishska, scoring first place with a whopping 122 points. Just one point above Juniper. Congratulations! You'll be receiving your prizes shortly. As for everyone else, better luck next time. You'll be getting your Haunted Pocket Horsemann's within the next few days. (I only bought around 6, and now I need to wait on trade locks!) If you entered and haven't received one by Saturday, please DM me.

Once again, thank you all for participating! We got quite a lot more entries than expected, and I hope for more events like this in the future. Have a good rest of your Halloween.
