Costume Contest: Voting Now Open!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 8, 2020, 8:55 am NST

Our Costume Contest is now open for voting!

Just like last year, round one is a rating round. You have the opportunity to rate all entries with a "Yay" (aka a thumbs up if you like it) or a "Nay" (aka a thumbs down if you don't like it). The 75 pets with the highest cumulative ratings will move on to the next round, where normal voting resumes.

Also, if you rate all 245 entries this year, you'll get an extra bonus vote to use in round three!

And as a quick warning as in year's past, please only use one jnAccount to vote. Last year we had to disqualify a handful of people that made the contest unfair by voting on several accounts.

Wow, that seemed like way more than usual. Some really great ones! I was surprised by a few subjects that were done more than once. Best of luck to everyone, and thanks to everyone who entered!

Well, whoops. Entered my pet with the wrong footwear - instead of Highland Gelert Boots, he wears Wellingtons THE SHAME!!

So many of the entries are stellar! It's going to be very tough to narrow down my picks this year!

lol already used up all my votes. good luck everyone!
dave - JN Staff, October 8, 2020 9:28 AM NST
There are 245 entries to vote on this year. Last year we only had 224, so there are a few more this year.

Lots of really original concepts this year, along with all the ones relating to COVID and Among Us. Loving all the ones with Invisible pets

Oh man the competition is TOUGH. Best of luck everyone! Some really interesting concepts. Makes me wish I went with something more original lol

It's too early for christmas outfits

Ah gotta love the 2020 references, all top-notch competitors!

I liked the one for commander keen, as I played that a lot .

Hellstar Remina, Black Panther, and the Lo-Fi Hip Hop Radio Girl are a few of my favorites. Good luck everyone!

Had a lot of fun voting here, and particularly enjoyed the Zoom window pun (or what felt like a pun to me) in the one entry! Great work, all.
jaudaran, October 8, 2020 7:20 PM NST
Wow, some of these are really great! A lot of good entries this year! And this is my first year entering (rather than just voting), so it's extra exciting!
purplebin, October 8, 2020 8:23 PM NST
I keep forgetting that we can always see all the entries for this year and every year. It's interesting to see them all on one page.
marfbear, October 9, 2020 12:01 AM NST
I don't know if showing all the wearables below the entries is new this year, but I really like it.
vaporesque, October 9, 2020 4:11 AM NST
LOL TM ToT danger of getting eaten by a Polarchuck

Some awfully good costumes this year. Last round's gonna be fun ^^
roshchodesh, October 9, 2020 2:36 PM NST
I'm curious, is this supposed to be anonymous? Should we be posting what we like or what we don't like or what we have submitted? I prefer not knowing anything or being influenced when I am considering submissions.
purplebin, October 9, 2020 3:52 PM NST
It can't be completely anonymous because the pets' names are shown. I recognized a few pets of people I know.
roshchodesh, October 9, 2020 5:19 PM NST
^^ Oh yes, I know what you mean; I was more concerned about comments here. (ex. 'it's too early for xmas outfits' or naming favourites). It's just me
chocolatjellopudding, October 10, 2020 2:57 AM NST
That definitely felt like a lot more contestants than last year lol. But super awesome costumes. I love the original ideas people come up with
moonlightwitch, October 10, 2020 7:18 AM NST
Definitely awesome outfits this year, good luck all. The Zoom call pet was so original, I love it
marfbear, October 10, 2020 4:35 PM NST
There are always people that comment on favorites. At this stage I don't think it influences too much. (I always neomail my favorties and tell them how much I love their costumes.)

Anyway, I'm sure if Jellyneo thought it was a problem, they would say something.
roshchodesh, October 11, 2020 8:41 AM NST
^^I always neomail my favorties and tell them how much I love their costumes.

I do the same thing!

A few years ago there was a brilliantcostume that didn't make it to final voting, an homage to Twin Peaks /Agent Cooper that, unless you were a fan of the show, you would totally miss. I'm soglad I neomailed the creator. I still think of that entry every year - it was a masterpiece!!
firenrocks, October 11, 2020 10:47 AM NST
I was trying to look up the entry roshchodesh mentioned (it seems to have been from 2015), but none of the pictures for previous years entries will load for me. Is it just on my end?

Looking at the code it should be at, http://www.jellyneo.net/images/costcont/2015/370_big.png, but it leads to a 404 error. Did all the previous years entries get lost? ;.;
roshchodesh, October 11, 2020 4:49 PM NST
I am not sure, I think you can only access the final results: top 15 and the Staff Picks for each year. I don't think there's a way to see all the entries for each year. I absolutely could be wrong, though
roshchodesh, October 11, 2020 5:24 PM NST
@ firenrocks
just go to neo and lookup my_block15
it's there
dave - JN Staff, October 12, 2020 8:54 AM NST
@firenrocks: Oops, that's just an error with prior entry years after the changes we made for this year's event.

You can find the entry here: http://www.jellyneo.net/images/costcont/2015/my_block15_big.png

We'll need to fix those past entry pages to link to the right images.
firenrocks, October 12, 2020 5:44 PM NST
Thanks, good to know they are not gone for good. It's fun to go back and see how creative people can be with customization.

Speaking of which, my favorite this year is the one of Michael Hutchence. Brilliant!
