      HOW TO: Claim Livestream Platinum Prizes   03/31/2016

      Hello fellow Tenno! Decided to make this guide after receiving multiple private messages and seeing multiple threads on how to claim plat prizes during official Warframe streams. Please remember to refer to the images in the spoilers for more information. Please Note: To be entered into a Platinum give-away on the Warframe Twitch Channel, all you have to do is log into Twitch and watch the stream. Despite what you may see in chat, there is NO requirement to post anything in chat. 
      Step 1:
      If your Twitch name is called out on a official Warframe livestream (Xbox 1 @ 1 / PS4 @ 4 / Primetime / Devstream), you will need to message the Warframe channel with your in-game alias and the platform you play on (PC, XB1, or PS4). To send a message select the "gear" icon at the bottom left, just under the stream window:
      Step 2: 
      Once you have selected the gear icon as shown above, click "message" to open up the editor:
      Step 3:
      Send a nice message to DE with your in-game alias and the platform you play on. Once you've done that click "send":
      Step 4:
      Be patient, once the message has been sent all you need to do is wait patiently and give [DE] "Ember Prime Ginga Ninja" Megan time to dish out the goods. You should have your plat within 24 hours provided there are no emergency issues at DE. If you believe you have been forgotten and it has been 3-4 plat-less days, then it might be a good idea to contact [DE]Megan on the Forums for an update on the situation since no one likes having platinum in limbo.
      Step 5: 
      Enjoy your winnings, Tenno!     [written by Community Moderator / Senior Guide NovusNova]

What are rules for if you have avalible materials around? Such as branches for Oberon's antlers, repurposing existing clothes, and the like? Plus what about those who already have a hot glue gun/thread/etc vs those that don't?

Available materials are free game. You can absolutely use items that you have/borrowed for your Cosplay. 

Any materials that you need to purchase count towards your $20 USD limit. Sharing is caring :community:!

On the one hand I see that and look at the shed full of stuff, old clothes that'll probably be scrapped, and theoretical help i can enlist, then i think over to the guy that's in college that is going to have to heavily thrift shop/yardsale for literally everything.

Eh, it's all in good fun. I have some fairly obvious ideas if anyone's looked at my post history here or on reddit. Dunno if i'll be able to pull it off or not. 

To anyone participating. Good luck and don't be afraid to look like a goofball. Everyone's gonna look really silly with this thing.

I feel like prolly not, but wanted to check, if we buy something, unrelated to the costume, and use the cardboard from its packaging in our costume, that product does not count to the 20$ right, since we would have had that cardboard anyway? 

 

Ex: Girlfriend wants me to go buy a new fan for the bedroom today, said buy whatever kind as long as its strong. But part of my idea for my costume came from the fact that I saw this contest shortly after she told me that and shortly after receiving another large package in the mail, which made me realize, "hey I'm about to have a lot of cardboard in the house" and gave me the idea I have. So since I'm not buying these thing to use in the costume, buy the fact that I'm buying them already inspired my costume, is that cool or?

Is there a limit on the tools we can use?

 

Being, a lot of recycled cardboard, water, and time can make a free block of material to carve and sand.  Then a cheap layer of paper and paints presto- high detail cosplay components.

Cardboard costumes sounds exactly in keeping with the whole costume on a budget theme!

In fact, pro tip: go to your local grocery store on their garbage collection day. Ask them if you can take some of their cardboard off their hands: since they have to pay to haul it away, you'll probably wind up saving them money by taking it from them for free.

Well, anyway, that's what my amateur theatre group does when they need construction material for props/set pieces/the occasional costume piece...
