Antonidas Mogging Contest Results

The first Antonidas Mogging Contest is over and was a huge success. 170,000 in gold and other prizes were handed out. A few categories were difficult to judge and some lessons were learned for the future (note to self: hold the next contest indoors so mounts aren't a problem) but overall things went very well and it was a lot of fun. We'll definitely be doing it again next month!

I've added a new page to the blog with more information on future mogging contests. That page will be updated frequently.

Being the first time, we got so wrapped up in organizing and running the contest we forgot to have someone write down the winner's names until after the contest was over. We couldn't remember the name in a couple cases.

Overall Best Dressed
1st place Famine 25,000g
2nd place Soliss 15,000g
3rd place Mike 10,000g
Honorable Mentions (5,000g each) to Dreary and Jalepeno, both of whom won prizes in other categories.

Thegayblade 10,000g

Most Outrageous
Dreary 15,000g

Szonya 20,000g
Darkbrekke 20,000g
A tie, both winners were awarded 20,000g

Best use of Cataclysm Dungeon and Raid Gear
Frostgeneral 10,000g

Sexiest Male
Jalepeno (male) 5,000g

Sexiest Female
Shocknawwe 5,000g

Most Intimidating - No picture available

Most Original (10,000g) and an honorable mention who got her choice of 6 Epics (she chose a Lovebird mount) are the winners who's names we forgot.

Also, the picture at the very top of this post is Eklipse a competitor with a terrific outfit who went unnoticed due to some jerk on a mammoth following her around and standing on top of her the entire time. She received a consolation prize later and is encouraged to enter again next month since we loved her outfit once we actually saw it.

A number of  BoE Epics have been donated too. We're keeping it surprise how these prizes will be handed out but it'll be fun.

A few other categories that are being considered include, Best NPC Impersonation, Classic Outfits, Funniest and some fun stuff like honorable mentions and booby prizes.

Additional sponsors, both individuals and groups are welcome. You can sponsor a new category of your choice or contribute to the prize pool for existing categories. A minimum of 10,000g or prizes of similar value is required to sponsor a new category.

Note to my regular blog readers, this is an idea I've been considering for some weeks and finally decided to give it a shot. This post is really intended to direct players on Antonidas US server to for contest information and rules. It will be updated frequently as things progress, new categories get added and so on.
