2011-04-23 [SilverFire]: I think that you/re/your mistake you just corrected is on the rules template, Lin, so it's going to crop up every time unless we fix the template. I'll do it if no one's done it when I get back, but now it's OM NOM time.
2011-04-28 [Alexi Ice]: Ok! Random/stupid question. If we by just like a white hat and do stuff with it....does that count? Cuz I would need a base for my hat...>>
2011-04-28 [SilverFire]: "1. Hats must have been created and designed by YOU.
You may use patterns as a reference but the bulk of the design must be yours. You may modify a pre-existing hat but the moderators will decide whether each hat is modified enough to remain in the competition.
2011-04-28 [Akayume]: That answers a question I was going to ask as well. :P Although I might sew my own anyway.
2011-04-29 [Alexi Ice]: I wish I had the kind of talent to sew my own Aka! *Jealous* hehehe.
Thanks, I apparently missed that when I read the rules.
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: I had a bit of inspiration during my Dino Evo class. :P I am excited!
2011-04-29 [MisLuck]: With how many hats can one enter?
I have couple of wool hats that I could go with but want to make a new fantasy -hat for this as well.
2011-04-29 [Chimes]: I would say one, due to the time frame involved for those making new hats... but I'm not sure how it's been with other craft contests. I'll have a look.
2011-04-29 [Chimes]: Scrap that, other competitions say two. So you can enter two. :)
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Exceeeeellent *has planned out two hats*
2011-04-29 [SilverFire]: Aaaaadd it to the ruuuuuuules. Probably need to do it for the art contest part too.
2011-04-29 [Chimes]: I think it is on the art one. (My internet just recovered itself, lets hope it stays alive long enough for me to. :P)
2011-05-03 [Sagacious Turkey]: I'm assuming a tiny hat would be acceptable? As in, a small one, like a model, not intended for use as a real hat?
2011-05-03 [Chimes]: If it looks like a hat and was designed by you, I'd say it's allowed. :)
2011-05-03 [MisLuck]: Yeay! ^^
2011-05-06 [Mortified Penguin]: Awright, hats! I'm probably gonna need a guide...
2011-05-06 [Chimes]: A guide?
2011-05-06 [Mortified Penguin]: A hat making guide?
2011-05-06 [Chimes]: Ah, can't help you there. :P Google.
2011-05-29 [Ms. Steel]: Is this image suitable for the contest, or are single photographs the preference?
2011-05-29 [Chimes]: That would be suitable. :) The rules allow 3 pictures per hat. (We have no preference as to whether all three are on the same canvas or not)
2011-05-30 [Ms. Steel]: Awesomesauce! Thanks.
2011-05-30 [Chimes]: Welcome. :)
2011-08-09 [wicked fae mage]: Would a headband suffice as a hat?
2011-08-09 [Chimes]: If it's a fascinator, it would. Like a miniature hat on a hair band... but ... not just a hairband, I don't think. I'd have to see it.
2011-08-10 [wicked fae mage]: I was going to use a hairband as the base and build off of it.
2011-08-10 [Chimes]: Then I think it should be okay. So long as it looks hat-like. :)
2011-08-10 [wicked fae mage]: It will be sort of a fascinator. If it's ruled to not be a hat I can always remove the entry. :)
2011-08-10 [Chimes]: This is true. :) Enter away.
