A few Summer Ideas...

edited July 24 in VFK Developer Ideas!
First and foremost I'd like to share a few ideas that I posted on the Devblog:

Summer themed pin ideas:

1) Summer 2019 HOST Pin
- Inspired by the Crossword 2011 HOST Pin that has a pencil that writes out "OMG 2011 YAY !!!" and then erases it
- I imagine a twig/stick writing "Summer 2019" in the sand, and then the tide washes over the pin and washes it away. When the tide goes back, the sand is a blank slate again, thus starting the pin loop
- Would be cute with a purple/white/teal shell border!

2) Swaying Coconut Palm Tree Pin
- I love the coconut items we've gotten so far this (Coconut Chair, Coconut Lei) and I would love to see a swaying coconut palm tree pin
- I think this would be a cool addition to the maze, and its been forever since we've had a maze pin that wasn't apart of a space month collection

3) Dripping Popsicle Pins
- I'd love to see various kinds of animated Dripping Popsicle pins: Rocket Popsicle [got it! :) ]; Fudge Pop; Orange Creamsicle; Blue Creamsicle; Berry Yogurt Pop, Cotton Candy/Bubble Gum Pop
- I think these could be awesome for summer Scavenger Hunts (similar to the Candy Heart scavenger pins in February), or even as Sand Dollar pins!


Some pictures for inspiration [I especially love the Blueberry and Cotton Candy/Bubble Gum ones!]:

Additional ideas...

I'd love to have a craft-able Denim Collection! I imagine the collection having 4 colour combination presets: White, Light Wash, Dark Wash, and Black.
Included in the collection could be denim jackets, shorts and jeans. I think the Nixie & Rad shorts are great, and I'd love to have these in more colour options. Additionally, I love the length of the Nixie shorts, but I'd love to have new denim shorts that are a bit more high waisted. Photos for inspiration:

Everyone loves a good Saturday Morning Fashions release, and I'd love to see some Summer Fashions releases! For girls, it would be nice to have some more summery tank tops/camis. I'd also love to have more basic white shirts. Here are some examples I've compiled:

Finally, building competitions are my favourite VFK activity! For this years Sandcastle Competition I'd really love to see a Shell medal & trophy! I love the new shell crossword lamp and I think shells are a great symbol of summer and perfect for the awards.

Another option that I believes @waterfallglow thought up last year was a Starfish medal & trophy. I think this would be a really cute option too! :)

Happy Summer!!!

  • I would LOVE to see jeans like these coming out.  In fact, for the boys, I think the perfect fit would be like the summer of love pants (without the bell bottoms of course).  That fit with jeans would be perfect... not too skinny, not too baggy.  Jean jackets are something i've wanted for a while now as well.  love those! 

    As for guy shirts for the summer fashions release, I would love to see these.

    As for the sand castle competitions; I would love to see the star fish.  It's small and clean and wouldn't look awkward.  Things like the dolphin and the orca necklace are a bit too large and look awkward when we're wearing them so I think the starfish would be perfect!

    @Zoee : Thank you so much for thinking of me and sharing on here my desire for the starfish medal/trophy!!!!!!!!! WOO!!! I realy appreciate it! I was actually about to make a thread on it so am super glad you did for me! I also really like your idea for a scallop shell medal/trophy! I have always liked scallop shells! I actually found a scallop shell on the beach (in real) a few summers back that has been a special treasure of mine. I will share a picture of it below. I will also share a picture of what I would want the starfish necklace to look like if it ends up being a starfish. I love the idea of a starfish cause if we have a star around our neck it would make us feel like a star!

    I like this starfish trophy (shown below) the best out of the ones Zoee suggested. Maybe the starfish on the trophy could look like the starfish on the medal necklace picture I shared above but the base like this one?? I personally don't like the idea of the starfish being tilted but straight like this trophy below. The legs can be slightly bent but as long as the entire starfish is not tilted and the upper point is pointing straight up. (If that makes sense?). The base (and starfish) of course would be gold for first, silver for second and bronze for third.:

  • I would like to see a shark trophy this year… I wanted that last summer too but we got the popsicle...

    We already have a dolphin and an orca, and I think a shark would essentially look very similar to those ones we already have. Personally I’m not a fan of the Tazz/shark theme, I feel like we’ve gotten so many shark/aquatic life themed items already. Besides, it is a Sand Castle/Summer contest, and I typically associate this theme with traditional symbols of summer and beaches like palms trees, shells, popsicles, etc. more so than I do aquatic animals so that’s what inspires my suggestions. Just my thoughts :)
  • a palm tree necklace would be cool or a beach ball. As for contest boutique prizes I wouldn't mind having a carry able bucket and shovel or an exclusive swim suit. I would like a swimsuit with either ruffles on the shirt/skirt. I really like those swim bottoms that come with short skirts layered on top. I also a swimsuit with polka dots on it or one in a graham style.

    I’d love a palm tree necklace but sadly we’ve already had one. I like the carry bucket and shovel idea! A beach ball necklace would be cool for the contest boutique as well! Speaking of contest boutique, I’d love to have a new contest boutique pin for this upcoming contest. It’s been sooo long since we’ve had one

    thank you and what about an iamted pin as a contest boutique prize? it could be a loop of a sand castle being built and destroyed.
