Hey Champions!

It's that time again hold onto your hats, Champions, because we're running another Costume Contest!

With a theme like Everyday Heroes, you can get as creative as you want. The theme definitely includes teachers/professors, the Coast Guard, Soldiers, but we're glad for out-of-the-box solutions - make whatever your heart desires.

Over the next few weeks you can post a screenshot of your costume Here that fits this theme. You can have multiple characters in your entry if you want, within reason.

The costume contest will run until Tuesday 2/4 at 7:00 PM PST. Any entries posted after that time will not be accepted.

There will be a total of 5 winners:

2 for Most Creative

2 for Most Entertaining

1 Random winner

Winners will receive Action Figures that will be sent via email or in-game mail. We?ll try to have them out midway through February; might be earlier.

Have Fun and Good Luck!

- Dwight

    Dwight, as a recommendation...

    Can we do 'historical heroes' next month/later?

    It'd narrow down my entry, lol.

    this sounds like a great idea but however in my experience costume contest are very byest and more based on a persons popularity not actual character designee however since this is going to be run by PWI staff I believe this wont be an issue would love to applie but i dont think a gundam'ish mecha A.I catgirl from subspace fits "everyday heroes" :P

    This here's The Miner. Y'may ask how he'd qualify as an "everyday hero"... Next time you turn the metal knob on the front door, swing it open on its metal hinges, and step inside of the house held together by metal screws, ask again.

    He spent some time as a Harbor Pilot, ensuring (mostly successfully - sorry Exxon) that large ships arrived in port safely.

    After that incident he became a State Trooper, keeping our highways safe.
