After a month off, it's time to kick off 2019 with a fresh Minecraft Skin Contest!

Review the ideas below and remember to vote for the one you like the best, not the one you think is going to win!



Fan Skins
- Choose a member on PMC that you're a fan of in some way. Create a skin inspired by their online persona, avatar, profile design, username or combination of them. Be sure to @mention them in your description so they'll be notified of your creativity and let us know where your skin inspiration comes from if it's not apparent from just the title. It does not need to be a literal interpretation of who you think they are, we encourage you to personify even the most abstract idea of why you're a fan.
Important: If you happen to know them in real life or through private conversations, do not reveal any personal information in your entry unless they've already posted it on their public profile page. Always respect other's privacy like it's your own.

Aztecs & Egyptians
- Two of the most fascinating civilizations of this world have inspired and perplexed modern minds in countless ways. Let their cultures inspire your mind to create a relevant Minecraft skin!

Historical Splendour
- Imagine the beauty, pomp and circumstance of past times and create a skin according to that. May it be an Egyptian king or queen, a medieval prince or princess or a lady or lord in a baroque gown. Consider also different options, while displaying royalty and their court would be one, different times also had interesting ways of adorning soldiers and warfare like knights with elaborate armour or soldiers in brightly coloured uniforms. Your skin should unveil the grandiosity of past countries, cultures and periods.

DawnBringer's 32 Color Palette (DB32)
- Palette restriction with the intention to inspire creativity. You'll be restricted to colors in the famous DB32 color palette. What you do with the palette will be up to you. If you've never used a color palette before, this is a great one to start with! Original creator & more information here.


Dance Off
- Musical tastes are as diverse as the sources of inspiration during it's creation. Make a skin that relates to music whether it's by genre, lifestyle, celebrity or culture. Let the music flow through your Minecraft Skin or into your ears at least. Either way, dance party and/or head banging is encouraged. Show us what you got!

City Life
- The city's alive with the hustle and bustle of hundreds of thousands of people! From the frequenters of a trendy coffee-shop on the corner, to the diligent crew of construction workers keeping the metropolis in shape, and everything between, create someone (or something!) that calls the city its home!

Fashion Show
- Fashion comes in all styles but they all try to make a statement. Dress up your skin for a fashion show! It doesn't have to be for a glamorous event red carpet event. It might be your own fashion for that matter. Use the description to explain the statement your fashionable skin is trying to make!

Disguises
- If it weren't for those meddling kids, I would have gotten away with it! It's time to pull off those masks and show who was really behind the deed. Make a skin that makes use of the hat layer to disguise what's underneath.

Scrapyard Creations
- One mans trash is another mans treasure. Create a skin using scrap parts from the junkyard. Piece it together with objects you might find thrown away only to find themselves part of something great!

Norse Mythology
- Norse mythology is the body of myths of the North Germanic peoples stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period. The northernmost extension of Germanic mythology, Norse mythology consists of tales of various deities, beings, and heroes derived from numerous sources from both before and after the pagan period, including medieval manuscripts, archaeological representations, and folk tradition. Learn more here.



This poll will run for about a week. Get your votes in!

I'm starting to think maybe Fan Skins was not the best idea.

A lot of people already are making skins for things that aren't other PMC users, fail to mention who it's a fan skin of, or just outright don't seem to understand that PMC contests have themes.

Whomever it is who's job it is to check if skins qualify is going to be VERY busy disqualifying skins this month.

Hey! It's a great skin, however, the rules of the contest state "Choose a member on PMC that you're a fan of in some way. "

you make a skin based off of a friend/someone you're a fan of, and just dedicate the skin to them, it coulf involve stuff they like, or if it's a reshade of one of their skins, or if it's just making one of their ocs as a skin.

Mind you; for the fan skins contest theme you're suppose to make your own creative interpretation of the person you're a fan of. Meaning a reshade of one of their skins or remaking one of their skins is not what is meant to happen in this case.

there is a specific spot to enter your entry in, and it only pops up after the contest starts. There should be a little check mark to hit after the contests starts while you submit your skin, make sure to click that so it is included into the contest!

He knows about that, what he means is if he makes a skin before the contest theme was released, can he go back and submit it, even though he already posted it

My Answer: Probably not, but idk, you can go ask the host of the contest.

I was gonna choose for city life because I always make urbanized cities in MC, I've always been interested in doing scrapyard creations because the idea allows for lots of uniqueness since there's so many scrapyard materials we can use.

Themes often stick in the poll for voting for quite a few rounds, themes that are often not voted on as much will eventually be removed from the poll and replaced with new ones. ^_^

At least, that's what I've seen happen with past polls.
