    [OFFICIAL SAIMOE COMPETITION THREAD] Next Stage [Soon]

    What is a SaiMoe Tournament/competition?
    - To find and pick the most "Moe" Character of all. Includes Both Male and Female Anime characters may it be human or not [as long as its cute]

    Meaning OF "Moe"
    -Moe (萌え?, pronounced [mo.e], literally "budding", as with a plant or adorable), occasionally spelled Moé, is a Japanese slang word originally referring to a strong interest in a particular type or style of character in video games, anime or manga. For example, 眼鏡っ娘萌え, meganekko-moe, "glasses-girl moe", describes a person who is attracted to fictional characters with eyeglasses. "Moe!" is also used within anime fandom as an interjection referring to a character the speaker considers to be a moekko (a blossoming or "budding" girl).

    A more detailed inside on this event and moe
    Well if it really isn't clear to you then I'll do a little rundown on what/how this competition wants/picks its winners and also at the same time there will be some explanation on Moe.

    Characters that usually win SaiMoe tournaments are the ones that grab the most attention. Not just by beauty or their body but also by cloths, their personality, Hair color, cloths color and so on. One of the most important things you will have to take note on how to make a Moe character at their prime is by their level of cuteness. Basically the character needs to have both beauty and cuteness but usually we focus more on their level of cuteness. Colors play a very important role in building a moe character's cuteness level as well. Example: picking the right colors to represent you characters style or personality, Green the color of jealousy or red/white the color of a fighting yet peace loving personality/spirit. Usually you use the colors for their cloths, eyes, accessories etcetc. You must also take note that the way you draw the characters eye may sometimes effect the cuteness/ beauty level as well. Obviously accessories, favorite food, pets and things they like also would effect their level of cuteness/beauty but at the same time its also not that important as long as you got your character planned out nicely but adding those stuff would definitely be a boost. The usual items placed on a Moe Characters to make them attractive is, Big hats[they just catch peoples attention like crazy], Neko ears[cat ears], Glasses[to give them that innocent but yet cute kinda feeling]. Here are some very good examples of a Moe character at its prime:

    But at the end of the day it all comes down to you imagination and original concepts and your understanding of what a real moe character should be like. the more original your character, the better. Just keep in mind of the many things I stated down. Hope this answers your questions and gives everyone a better understanding of Moe.

    Bio: A sort of stunted cave spider gypsy person, Ulow (pronounced you-low) is a twenty-six year old member of the underground Chitine race. She ventured up into the world above looking for her missing son Fillis, and is still on that quest to date.
    Personality: Smart but ill-educated, Ulow loves to gibber on about practically nothing, with an clumsy accent practically no one can understand. She displays a massive amount of kindness towards those she likes, but on the other side of the coin, this irrational amount of passion tends to make her turn on people for the smallest wrong doing.
    Likes: Sour foods, hot/damp weather, dark places, alcohol, company.
    Dislikes: Any animal with fur, bright lights, squid, being alone.

    MAIN EVENT
    First Saimoe Champ[2012]

    both would be better, but depends on the contestants - if most of them are here, makes sense to have it here in the new one.

    It appears that most of the contestants are on the old forum, so it seems like the old would be better.
