We thought long and hard, and reconsidered, and bickered a little bit, and thought some more, and finally settled on the winners for our Halloween contest. And here they are!
Sam & Max created in Legos
Judges' comments: "They spent time to build the Desoto and the clever casting of a Lego wolf in the role of Sam. Nicely staged."
Freelance Police Halloween Costume
Judges' comments: "Halloween + Costuming takes work and they turned out pretty good + someone suckered their little bro into dressing like a bunny and convinced him it was cool + the little bro is channeling Max in this photo, and is hilarious."
Max as a bar of soap
Judges' comments: "A lovingly realized portrait of Max in soap so that it can be slowly dissolved against the entrant's own body. Sweet and disturbing - like Max himself."
And, a bonus fourth winner... but they only get the prize if they swear on a copy of Surfin' the Highway that they NEVER do anything like this again:
Flaming Max Effigy
Judges' comments: "That was pretty fun. I'm not sure we should be encouraging this sort of behavior, but... fun."
(Note that this is the first and last time we will ever give someone a prize for setting something on fire. Don't try it again.)
Woo! These lucky folks will be getting an email in the near future with a coupon for the Season 1 set, and everyone else will be getting a coupon for Culture Shock. Thanks, all, for participating... this was fun. Let's do it again sometime!
Given that my promise not to do anything like this again was deleted in the recent bungle that caused all comments to be deleted...does this mean that I can resume my dangerous pyromanical activities? :P
