    Rules
    1. Deadline is December 31rst, before midnight PST! (Jan, 1rst 3am EST)
    2. Post only your submissions in this thread! Any post that is not a valid entry will be deleted.
    3. Include the x,y coordinates in the post. We will visit each house in person to judge.
    4. This is a decoration contest, please include some form of decorations. Creativity with custom housing is nice, but decorations are a must!
    5. Any entries that are a copy of previous entries, or copied from a website will not be accepted.
    a few tips for success
    Have a theme/story to your entry. Example: Pirate themed, dark and gory, and other themes from pop culture. You can also choose to tell a story with the decor. Whatever tickles your fancy! Just make sure it's holiday related!

    Use your space wisely! We judge based off of the ENTIRE house. not just one area. If an area seems to be lacking in sections it may hurt your score. The same is true for over doing it. It will hurt your score if it looks like a box of random holiday deco exploded all over your house. Quantity<Quality

    Small details can make a big impact. Creative use of ordinary items in ways not normally used can easily impress the judges.


    Good luck to all who enters! We look forward to seeing your hard work!

    !WINNERS!
    First : Lectral
    Second : Buttercup
    Third : Dereliction

    (Sorry I didn't know we cant edit in this thread, continuing down below because I posted to save)

    Santa has positioned a lookout to keep his present's safe
    The Grinch has a nasty habit of ruining Christmas
    On the Roof we find the Master Dyer carefully selecting colors to bring into the workshop
    Just don't ask him how many hues he's had to memorize, it's a touchy subject

    [​IMG]

    Inside the workshop all the elves work together to create a variety of crafts including wood, cloth, and ingots.
    The taste tester's gather round to make sure any stocking stuffers are food grade quality
    (Santa can't afford another FDA lawsuit)

    [​IMG]

    Even elves need a break once in a while
    Santa's hooked them up with a game room and an open bar

    [​IMG]

    Presents for all of Sosaria takes up a lot of space
    Especially all the handouts Santa has to hold on to
    That is.... until their ready for distribution *cough* Shane *cough*


    Thank you everyone, especially the staff here! It's been a rough year but being a part of UO:F has made an otherwise dreadful year tolerable.
    I'm happy I got to spend time at home decorating for Christmas this year. Happy holidays everyone!

    The Toy Factory By ChinaDoll.... A very well-known vendor mall at the outskirts of Yew magically transforms into the Toy Factory for three weeks out of the year every December.
    Known as the brothel house in the red light district of Yew, the three-story building is filled with maniacal helper elves frantically building and decorating. They, along with a Story Teller are all helping out the doll's at the Toy Factory.
    There are three levels of conveyor belts pumping out little white stuffed animals and dolls for all the good boys and girls in Sosaria. The elves have finally mastered the art of tailoring and stuffing the little toy animals and doll's.
    It is rumored that if you tell the story teller “Happy Holidays” she may say something back to you or even give you a gift.
    …. to be continued.. (Not a writter) [​IMG] 1St floor is the Doll/toy factory work shop. [​IMG] 2nd Floor the Elfs are going crzay puming out these little stuffies... [​IMG] Third Floor Santa's Helper is helping the Elfs get there groove on.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I don't really have many Holiday/Christmas themed items, but I worked with what I have. The hardest part of this was getting all the darned cotton bales! I honestly think it feels more like a scavenger hunt haha but I hope you enjoy! ^^;

    Merry Christmas from The Drunken Elf!

    Located at 674,814 on the Northeastern corner of the Yew Bank.

    Fair warning though, be careful entering from the ground floor. It looks like Santa had the elves working a little too hard making presents, or maybe they got into some bath salts or something, but they went bat-shit and started killing and dismembering each other on the table saw... either way, the authorities have been notified, so come on up top to the bar, or enter from the Yew Bank Roof. Buddy the elf and good ol' Mr. Fezziwig need company, and there's plenty to drink!

    <a href="https://imgur.com/wezc4NG"><img src="https://i.imgur.com/wezc4NG.png" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

    On the 2nd floor you can see the Ghost of Christmas Past escorting Ebenezer Scrooge to a scene of Belle, his lost love, and her husband having a feast.... needless to say they had it all to themselves considering the murderous elves scared everyone else away. The good news is the doors lock, so they're safe. I think when they find out that Aunt Bethany left the potato salad out on the counter all night, and that the bathroom is downstairs... this might actually be a recipe for disaster.

    Merry Christmas!
    Remembering the real reason for the season! Luke 2:1-21

    In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register. 4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” 16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. 21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
