    the Nocturnal and Sheogorath dress up is kinda rigged considering their costumes were both crown store items.

    As long as you're not doing the entire thing as not-craftable motifs, I'm not seeing anything that says every slot has to be used. And if you have to, the Outfit slots can be used to just change the color too.

    Is it allowed to make minor graphical edits in photoshop to the screenshots in question?

    Also, are ENB's allowed, or must the screenshot be fresh from ESO without any graphical modification?

    In general, the screenshot shouldn't be edited unless you're just removing your name, or something. What did you have in mind, though?

    Using graphical modifications from addons is fine.

    The two edits that has been done to that is the addition of a cape, and a "merge" of the Trinimac Medium Mask with the Outlaw Medium Hood.

    Though, I have a feint feeling something like that would be stretching it too far?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno a couple questions. The costumed character has to be on our live account, or could we make it on the PTS? On the prizes for the winners, it states "one in-game mount of choice", so does that includes the Radiant Apex mounts that players have a very small chance of receiving from the crown crates? Also would we have to choose a mount that is already in the game, or could we choose a mount that is coming, from say, the scalecaller boxes?
    I'm just asking for clarification. Thank you.

    Edit: Nevermind, I've just noticed that my country is excluded. The same situation as with previous contest...

    ZOS, is there a way that you could make a contest which won't conflict with some local laws? Maybe changing the type of prizes could solve this issue? This is really sad that every time there is something that I'd love to participate, I'm excluded...

    Also how much of this needs to be outfit-related specifically? I'm guessing costumes aren't allowed. What about hats? Masks? Unique adornments and hairstyles? Are we allowed to use housing to set up the right atmosphere, or does it need to be shot out in the world?

    Its a bit hard to do for me lore-wise. Daedric furnishing after morrowind consisted of daedric altars, daedric urns, etc. which while being daedric was furnishing of Sixth House, could be found only in related public dung and have emblems of House across furnish items and bound by lore to it. we know 6th House doesnt worship any deadra, yet heavily use daedric-themed things. Azura furnish pack was consisting of those 6th House items that not related to her but still classified as "daedric". Even special OST "dark sanctuary" from vol.2 was written especially for Sixth House public dung and was aka "daedric theme" ost used later in daedric-related delves. Even Iron Atronachs could be fount only there.
    1. So, if my char is look "daedric" coz roleplaying member of Sixth House Cult, which is hostile to daedric princez but adopting daedric "things", he cant participate? Would be nice to follow Camoran theory that Lorkhan is daedra, not aedra.
    2. Doez background of screenshot based on daedric theme has any meaning?

    And one final question for now : do we need to use every slot for an outfit, or can we like, not use shoulder/belt/etc. if we don't need it? Currently we don't have a "hide" option for anything but helm, but for some shots it would be an improvement to leave some pieces of gear out, you know?

    I also have a question. My group of friends wished to participate in the 'Group' category, naturally. However, all of us wish to dress with inspiration from a different Daedric prince, rather than all dressing in variations of the same one. Is this something we can do? If so, how can we submit it? The drop-down menu only offers one Prince per submission, so I'm confused as to whether or not this is something that we can adequately do.

    @ForsakenSin

    I see the problem, you're grouping the terms incorrectly. The "excluding" line refers to the territories, military installations, and commonwealths refer strictly to those of the United States. Separating them out properly gives us the following.

    All participants must be 18 years of age or older at the time of entry, must possess a valid form of identification and be a legal resident of
    1. (i) one of the 50 United States (or the District of Columbia) excluding the territories, military installations and commonwealths
    2. (ii) Canada
    3. (iii) the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Poland, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Russia, (iv) Australia, New Zealand, or (v) Argentina, Mexico, Peru.

    So unless you're on a US base in Australia or something you should be OK?


    See now that makes sense

    It should be on Live. As far as the mount, it does not include Crown Crate exclusive mounts or previous exclusives such as the Striped Senche. You can choose any mount currently offered, or a previous limited time offer.
