In no particular order, my votes this derby:
Angst O Lantern (good style, good idea, good colours, solid all around, but not my fave - I'm not sure I'd buy it but it's amongst the best of the most popular, so I had to give it a vote)
Got Blood (I love vamps! awesome concept, but the design is a bit mediocre imo. I'd still def buy it though, bc I love the idea that much)
Moonbeast (love the colours and style, not so thrilled with the concept, and it's not really halloweeny imo, but I think it's so eye catching - pure art)
Vampire Emerging (vamps! plus, my own design, and I love purple)
Missing Brother (HILARIOUS!!! style is passable, but this one I love just for the idea, it's brilliant!)
Just Say No (I'm sort of a health nut and anti candy, and pro-skinniness, so yeah, this one pleases me mentally on many levels, and the style is fine)
Lycanthrotee (clever, simple, eye-catching)
All Hallows' Sleep (I would never buy it as it's not my colours or style at all, but I appreciate the artistry, and it's very true to the derby theme - and so it deserves my vote)
A shirt must be at the very least non-ugly, but beyond that, I vote for either very clever/funny/mentally appealing shirts or for really eye-catching designs. Unless noted, I'd buy all the ones I voted for, if they won. Should I not be voting on shirts I wouldn't actually buy? I guess I just feel it's better that a shirt that I at least respect/appreciate wins than one that I think is mediocre.
So far, only two shirts that I've really loved have won - Sunset Tree and Urban Meltdown. I've been pretty bummed with the past few derbies, with really very few designs even in the top 20 that appeal. :\ But I guess it's better for my wallet. And I'm having fun making designs even if I get like under 10 votes, sigh.
