Hello Planet of Minecrafters.

Did you know that we have hosted over 60 player skin contests? We're seeking fresh theme suggestions to consider for future polls and we want to hear what you think.


That's right, we want YOUR ideas!

  • Please post ONE idea per reply.
    Feel free to post multiple but for the sake of discussion and emeralds going towards a specific idea, one idea per post will clarify what were talking about.
  • Your ideas will be credited to you in the poll options as well as if it becomes an actual contest.
  • Don't be afraid to pitch your idea. We want a wide variety of options.

EXAMPLE #1:
Title: Atlantis
Description:
Sunk beneath the sea long ago, this lost city has been found by explorers. Bring Atlantis back to life by making skins of the people, culture, creatures and legends. Ancient technology will be unearthed and mysteries discovered. So let us dive beneath the waves and explore the lost city of Atlantis, or imagine what Atlantis was like before it sank.

EXAMPLE #2:
Title: Guardians of the Lost Treasure
Description:
An ancient tomb sealed for thousands of years, a floating island protected by centuries-old technology, or even a vault long-since abandoned by its owners. What defends it, and what is it guarding? Make a skin of a something that would guard lost treasure from treasure hunters.

EXAMPLE #3:
Title: Retro
Description:
Roll back the clock, get your funk on, and make a skin based off of the idea's from the 70's to the 80's, be it the slicked hairstyle of the street drag racers, the afro's of the disco dancers, or even the pixelated faces of the original game characters.


IDEA TEMPLATE ( copy & paste into your reply and fill out )

Description:


Template Information

TITLE
This is a the best title you can currently come up with for summarizing your theme into something that is easy to understand. A good title should represent the theme in as few words as possible while also being entertaining / attracting attention.

DESCRIPTION
The description should elaborate on the contest title by clarifying what the contest/event is about. Good descriptions are fun to read, keep your readers attention and most importantly explains the theme in a way that is easy to understand.


You don't need to use the template but it can be helpful to have a few simple prompts.

Title : Your dream company mascot
Description : After years of hesitation, you've finally launched your own company ! May it be a fast-food chain or a toy brand, a good way to make it recognizable is to have a mascot who encapsulates the spirit of your company ! It is thus important to have a grasp of what the company is like, and have a design that fits it.

Title: SURVIVALISTS OF THE JUNGLES
description:
the wither has taken over the world.
nothing is left, except the big jungle even the wither can't destroy on its own.
so survivalists have been hiding in the jungle.
the wither has sent many mobs to find them.
and one of them is YOU.
make a skin with all the resources you may need to survive.

so its like a theme: survivor-skin (or a jungle-human????)

Title: Cyber-Tech Survival
Description: The world has run out of recourses. There are only two ways to survive. You can either hide yourself inside a triple air sealed bunker and await supplies from the Augmented, or become an Augmented. The Augmented, like the name suggests, are those who dared to have a surgery to augment their body using cyber-technology so that they rarely need recourses. Why isn't everyone Augmented? The chances of surviving the surgery are 1 in 20, and on top of that, part or most of you is no longer human. Are you an Augmented? Or will you hide? Create a player skin based on your decision: How would you look? What clothes would you wear? What adventures and scenic sights would you see? Would the world be dead? Are you even on Earth? That's for you to decide!!! :D

Title: The Seven Seas

Description: step aboard for a voyage back to the days when royal navies hoisted their sails and when pirates spread fear across the deeps.
Create a player skin that looks seaworthy and fit for adventure! It could be a highly decorated naval officer, leading the proudest of armadas. Or it could be a bone-chilling, cutthroat buccaneer seeking wealth and notoriety. The theme can be historical, fictional, or even a mix of both. Be creative, and make a character you would imagine seeing on a great wooden ship in the middle of a briny ocean.

Title: Pulp Heroes

Description: Return to the age of blimps, tommy guns, and domino masks for a classic pulp adventure!
Create a player skin based on the pulp heroes of the 1920s and 30s - heroes that laid the groundwork for the introduction of Batman and Superman. Pulp magazines predated comic books, telling crime dramas, science fiction tales, and exotic adventures with bold heroes and scandalous women. Your skin can be based off an actual pulp hero, like Doc Savage, Tarzan, or The Shadow, or a completely made-up character...

Be bold, be colourful, and be adventurous! Bring the retro spirit to bear with bigger than life pulp characters!


Also, if this gets accepted, I'd be down to host/create a banner/support the competition in any way I can!

That's absolutely part of the reason I proposed it! "Pulp Heroes" encompasses such a wide variety of themes, so there's a world of potential skins that the fine folk of PMC could put forward!

I think there'd be a whole bunch of super creative entries!
