The dress up element is strong in MapleStory and that's because of our seemingly endless wardrobe. As part of our road towards introducing new outfits to the community, we will be holding a contest to give Maplers a chance of introducing new equipment cover designs as well!

How to Enter:

  • Use the template, provided by the start of the event, to create a unique design for a full MapleStory outfit.
  • Discord Entries:
    • Enter in #art-contest channel
    • Include the following with your entry:
      • Your In-game Name
      • World Name
      • Your design of the outfit
  • Forum Entries:
    • Comment on the Contest post
    • Include the following with your entry:
      • Your In-game Name
      • World Name
      • Your design of the outfit

Requirements & Rules:

  • You must submit an outfit design in an entry to be considered. You're entering an outfit, not a single cover equipment piece. You're not required to draw a cover for every slot of equipment, but the bare minimum should be a hat along with an overall, or top and bottom.
  • Only one (1) entry can be submitted per person. (It can be Unisex or Male/Female can be on 1 submission.)
  • No explicit content is allowed. Please keep it appropriate and PG-13.
  • Do not use an outfit of licensed characters from other games or anime in your artwork.
  • All submissions become the property of Nexon. All designs received in this contest may be published, modified, and reused by Nexon in any medium.
  • All designs will be shared and be reviewed by our development team equally regardless of the design's winning status. However, please note that we do not guarantee that any specific designs will be implemented in-game.

Event Prizes:

  • 1st Place: 100,000 Maple Points
