I'm pretty bummed with the results, but what can you do. I spent hours designing my collection, and probably got like 4 friends to vote me up with 10's. Just some close friends that already had accounts. I don't know how many people voted but I have a feeling a lot of the people that just joined decided to vote down a lot of the other entries with 1's, because I ended with a 5.25.
But the fact that your suit doesn't even get a chance of winning if you don't get enough friends to vote for it seems kind of ridiculous. I have seen a lot of possibly winning designs not make the top 15. I guess to even have a shot at the competition you don't only need to design something that looks good, you need to do that and spam other forums/ask all your friends and family members to make a bunch of accounts and vote for you. Or you can just add a couple pockets or lines to the template and tell first drop to color it themselves...
/end rant. Next time I know what I need to do to have a shot
