As a reminder, each entry was carefully examined against the following criteria:
- Representative of the Yule spirit or Wintry ambiance.
- Originality of the overall design.
- Integration of the various pieces used.
- Blending of dye colors.
- Overall impression and quality of the screenshot.
Although it wasn't easy, judging these submissions was truly an honor. All of the outfits we received were beautiful. Lots of care, passion, and enthusiasm went into each and every one. Just from effort alone, I wish it were possible to award everybody a prize. Unfortunately, we could only pick three winners. Before I make the official announcement, I invite everyone to view all of our entries via this Flickr album. Player names are attached to each image.
Without further ado, congratulations to our three fashionistas below!
