It's time to brainstorm for the theme of Contest 29. You have one week to suggest ideas. All seconded ideas will be voted on. (You do not have to second an idea that has already been seconded.) Brainstorming will end on Friday July 17, 2015.
____________________________________________
Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite and placing the picture in your post with the Img link. Please don't make us hunt for your entry because it is posted on another site. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest may or may not receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

Let's kick this off.

Theme: wraps

Find something and cover it(at least partially) in rings!

I'll second Wraps.

I'll also suggest "maille that you don't wear" by that I mean, not jewellery or armour. Something that serves a purpose or enhances something be it practical or beauty so long as it's not being worn by someone. Not that I have any distaste for them but I've seen enough necklaces and bracelets to last a life time. I'd like to see what else the community can do with maille.

I'd like an unconventional theme; like BDSM.

And suggest Headwear.

While I have no problem with discrete discussions in the forums on adult subjects such as BDSM, I do not think that this is an acceptable theme for the contest. This is a site intended for all ages, including minors. For that reason, I will not be including this suggestion on the list to be voted on.

I can understand your decision, even though most of my peeps in the BDSM community gathered their interest while quite underage.

I support the 500 rings or less one. Smile

Theme: Steampunk

Theme: Stars


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

I assumed this was one suggestion and not two. Correct me if I'm wrong.
