Visions of Gold Dorm Decorating Contests!


Themed Dorm Room Decorating!!
Each Friday I will post a new theme in this topic, from March 1st through March 15th. You will only have couple days to enter each theme. You will not know the theme until each Friday dates are; March 1st , 8th and 15th. So are you up to the challenge? Can you still make a really cool looking dorm room?

That's right this is decorating with speed!  How fast can you decorate?


Week one theme. From March 1st - March 3rd 6pm US Central time.
This weeks theme is now closed winners will be posted soon.
While following Shane MacGobhann one day you watch him dart under a rainbow, once he leaves you go to where he had darted in and behold there is his Pot o' Gold, quickly  you grab it up and run to your dorm room. You begin to count to find out there is 1000 gold pieces in this Pot o' Gold. You wonder could I decorate a dorm room with only this amount?

1000 gold max!!
What this means is everything in the room must not go over the total amount of 1000 in game gold. You will also need to give a list of each item and its cost so be careful! 

Example: Wall paper and flooring cost 100 gold each, that is 200 to that grand total of 1000. You may go under the total but you may not go over.
Rules for this week theme only:
No pets  and No Crowned only items also if you craft the price of the recipe is what will count, if you craft 2 it will double. The pet you have equip to your wizard will be the only exception.

Tip: Over 50 items used means a crowned only item was used. Keep your list under 50.


__________________________________

Week two theme. From March 8th - March 10th 6pm US Central time.

This weeks theme is now closed winners will be posted no later than Mon March 11th 6pm
 After using all Shane MacGobhann's gold you decided that you need to take his empty pot back. Only problem is you cannot find where the rainbow is. You decide to decorate your dorm in the colors of the rainbow in hopes it will help you return the empty pot to Shane MacGobhann.

Colors of the Rainbow!!
Decorate your dorm With the colors of the rainbow!

Example: Rainbow colors-Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo(deep blue), Violet(purple)
For this week: There is no set limit of spending or space( You must stay within the dorm room walls though). 
I do want to see all the colors of the rainbow. When you send in your entry, List what you used for each color of the rainbow.

Be creative! Good luck!

  1. What about Grub Guardian dropped items?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No they will be added to cost , I would check bazaar cost. Only items that will not add to cost of 1000 will be the items that come with the dorm room. They do count towards your 50 items.

      Delete
  2. Also, what about enemy dropped items and bazaar items?
    Is it the vendor price or the price you acquired it for?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Add the price you paid from the bazaar. If it is a very rare item I know the cost. You can always look at wiki central for prizes too.

      Delete
  3. I,000 gold!!!!!! That is just cruel. Ok here are some questions.
    1) Prices vary at the Bazaar, so do we just put price we bought item at?
    2) Free Housing Items (press x to collect). You can get some in the bazaar, but I have a lot I collected. Do they count as some of your gold?
    3) If you use rugs and crates to float, but then pick them up (except mayb 1 rug), do they still count as part of your gold? Or is it just items in the room?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1)Only free items that will be not added to your 1000 total will be your items that come with the dorm room . They do count against your 50 items though.

      2) If you leave that rug you better count it.

    2. This is what comes in the dorm room
      2 small pots
      1 royal bed
      1 stained end table
      1 padded stool
      1 exquisite desk

    Are we allowed to use housing items we already have? That way, we're not spending any extra gold. Or do we have to buy all new items for less than 1000 gold?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you have items you have you need to go find out how much they would cost to buy. Wizard101 Central Wiki has prices http://www.wizard101central.com/wiki/Category:Housing

      Delete
  5. Do the furniture items have to be a specific color?

    ReplyDelete
  6. What if we bought an already crafted item from the bazaar? What price do we use now recipe price or bazaar price?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I use a crafted item the price of the recipe is what will count, if you use 2 it will double

      Delete
  7. What about crown furniture items from hoard packs that are sold in the bazaar are we allowed to use them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No crowned only items. If you can buy them with gold it is okay.

  8. Gobbler Junior here: It is going to be hard decoration with only a thousand gold lol, hope i can spice something up:)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Does the dorm have to loo cool or does it have to look good? There is a difference.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm so excited :D 1000 gold is a small price but I got an idea of how to decorate my dorm I already started and so far its going good :) And one question--> If we put the Open Book (the one that you collect) will it go to our price cause when I try sell it it says sell for 0 gold o.O

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If it is no auction you will not have a price. Some things I under stand. Make sure to list it. If anything can be bought with gold you must use that price.

      Delete
  11. Am kinda confused xD, so like every item in our dorm has to b 1000 gold or everything has to be 1000?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No it is like every item in you dorm cannot go over the 1000 total , Needs to add up to
      If you use wall paper for 150 and floor tiles for 150 that is 300 towards that 1000.

      Delete
  12. Oh alright thanks! :) now i get it!

    ReplyDelete
  13. So furniture items obtained from quests can be counted as FREE if they're No Auction? Does that apply for the hidden furniture items that are No Auction as well?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No auction means no price. Hidden furniture if you can buy it in bazaar you have to add it to list total. All items need to be listed.

      Delete
  14. I got a question about the prize... Does the winner get all of those things or just one?

  16. My floating Purple Posies are jutting outta the wall by 5-10%, I'm real worried bout that

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is fine. What that rule means I do not want you to use the space outside your dorm room.

      Delete
    2. Also, the screenshot should just have our wizard, no friends, right?

      Delete
  17. Hello, my question here is; will the soil we use to plant count towards the 1000 gold limit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes the pot you use count towards the 1000 so does the plant. The only pot that do not count towards are the ones that originally come in the dorm room small wizard city one.

  25. Does our dorm have to be based on the colors of the rainbow, or can it have a different theme, and simply include the colors?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sure if it has ALL the colors of the rainbow on it sure why not? You need to use all the colors though some where.

    1. I am sorry you feel this away. I have judges and they judge all dorm fairly. This does not mean you dorm was better or not better. All it means is that you dorm did not score higher with judges. I am sure you dorm was beautiful they all were.

  34. I got a question, I have 2 accounts with the same email address (Idk if this can be done but if you are wondering how is this possible then, it's just is, when I was making the second account I accidentally typed the same email address and created the account) and I was thinking about entering them both in this contest, my question is if I can enter them both in this contest, if yes then I just want you to know that there will be 2 entries from the same email. (Sry if this question is a little stupid).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. One of the rules is *You may only win once. So the answer would be no. I am sorry.

      Delete
  35. I know one of the rules was *To be fair to all if you float items you must stay within the dorm room walls. What if the item isn't floating, but is on the ground and put into the walls to save space? Does that count as floating an item? Because i have some big objects that i want to put into my dorm, but are a little too big.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is allowed. What is not allowed is trails going up and outside the dorm room. You can use all of the inside you wish. If you want to sink a big item into the wall but still see most of it in your dorm you that is fine.
