Betabrand leggings design contest

Betabrand leggings design contest


Have you ever wanted to design something that will actually get turned into a finished product you can wear? Now's your chance! Betabrand is partnering with COLOURlovers for an incredible new contest. Betabrand, a company based in San Francisco, is an online community that designs, manufactures, and releases new items every week! They are now launching a new clothing line for women and we’re going to help them choose colors for one of their designs.  Our users will be choosing five colors for a pair of Betabrand leggings.

Here's how it works

Users will use the COLOURlovers.com palette tool on the entry page to color in a five-color Betabrand template for their new leggings.  Once an entry is completed, you can vote for your favorites by ‘loving’ them in our gallery.  You can begin ‘loving’ submissions as soon as they are created!

The 9 most loved designs will be featured on Betabrand's site and the design with the most votes on their site will win.

Prizes:

The top 9 finalists will receive a Think Tank designer t-shirt

Grand prize winner: The prototype of their leggings, a chance to crowdfund their design into production with Betabrand, $200 Betabrand Credit and a Think Tank designer t-shirt!
2 runners-up: $50 credit plus TT designer t-shirt

Schedule

  • Tuesday, February 25th:  Contest is open for submissions – up to three per user!
  • Sunday, March 2nd: Submissions Close at 10pm PST.
  • Monday, March 3rd: Top 9 most loved entries will be moved over to Betabrand’s site.  Voting will recommence on their site for the remainder of the contest.

Sorry to hear you feel that way, omentum. we've gotten a lot of positive feedback so far, but truth be told I'm sure they're not for everybody. Hopefully you'll consider coloring some in or voting for others' designs anyway.

I've got to say it. Those leggings are hideous! lol
What were they thinking?!
I think it's virtually impossible to make these leggings look good, no matter how you color them! lol
Well, I say hats off to the 50 or so entries so far for trying to make 'em look good
@omentum

Well, here's mine.

I am imagining what my thighs and butt would look like in these tights and what the image in my head is scary.

With leggings so hideous, my criteria will have to be to vote for the people that I love <3 <3 <3 !!



(and GabsGiggles, and INKYBAGWELL, and MiyuriScarlet, and MMMiguel, and fuddles, and eighteyed, and American Women, and any other friend of mine who hasn't entered yet!)

Just don't come near me wearing those things if you win! :-D
Hugs!





(PS: don't take my joking about these tights seriously... i'm just having fun with it)
(PSS: Friends, message me and I'll vote for you if I haven't already. I'm certainly not voting for anyone who just joined today and will probably never be seen again when the contest ends, as happens so often with these contests!
xD
If I did win, I wouldn't wear the prototype. The design is cool enough but they'd look good only on a specific size and age group. Anyone over the age of 15 and a size 2 who wears these shouldn't expect anyone to look them in the face for a while.

But, you have to admit, they are nicer than the tye-dye tights from last year.

I'm totally wearing them if I win! It's been so cold here this winter I need another layer under my pants! I hope they come in Mens XL :)

Under your pants? I'm disappointed.

I could ditch the pants and just wear the leggings…IF it ever warms up here.

Or maybe I could just wear them over my pants :)

I'm afraid using them over your pants won't flatter your figure.
Be sure to tuck your socks into the leggings, if you do.

Don't know if I'd ever wear them, but, I decided to give it a shot too.
