Thanks sakredchao. I was getting there, albeit rather slowly. Razz

Congrats to Femailler.com for her winning the last contest! Femailler.com, if you suggest something for the next theme contest, your suggestion automatically gets put into the voting list, seconded or not.

This thread will run for 7ish days. So until next Tuesday, put up your ideas! If you like one, second it! An idea must be seconded to get put into the voting!

___________________________________________
1. 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 should be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite.

4. 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 will 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.

My suggestion is 'Unconventional.'

Basically, using chainmaille in unconventional ways, like, making things out of chainmaille that aren't commonly made from chainmaille. Or using weaves for things they aren't normally used for. Maybe a really odd AR for a weave to achieve some goal. Essentially, doing things you haven't done before, and that you don't recall seeing other people do before, but that actually makes something viable (artistically or functionally) in the end.

And obviously this wouldn't be one of those, 'well, so-and-so did something like that last year, so your entry is disqualified' things, but rather the voter could decide for themselves whether or not the entry was Unconventional, much like the Micro theme contest.

Things that come to mind are:

Functional floormat -- using both a tough material and rubber rings to keep it from sliding on hard surfaces, while maintaining structural integrity.

Inlays made from weaves not normally used for inlays, but that you can still convey a good image in.

Jewelry that discovers the true potential of a weave to make beautiful shapes and fluidity, all while remaining wearable. (Like Trinitymaille earrings.)


Anyway, you get the idea. Doing this type of stuff is what really makes me excited about chainmaille, and I love to see when other people make new breakthroughs. Coif Smiley

I better stop before this turns into "too long, didn't read." Coif LoL

That's just my non-sense -er- two-cents!

Nice. I love it when people do stuff without my knowledge.

I'd like to suggest "falling"...mostly 'cause it's how I feel at this very moment.

I'll also second "eyes".

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.
