Costume Party Contest!
 
COSTUME PARTY!

Another contest this month! This is a very straightforward one, and you can probably guess how it works already. What you haven't guessed is the prize.

Dress up as a Hamumu character, take a picture, and post it in this thread on (or before, but why ruin the surprise?) October 31st!

I will set up a secret poll on that day to vote for your favorite costume, with one week time limit.

The most popular costume will win 995 Yerfbucks. NINE HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE! Second and third place will each win 100 Yerfbucks.

Tip: Don't just do Bouapha or Dr. Lunatic! There are literally hundreds of other characters and monsters to choose from. Just think how nice a Roly Poly costume would look! Do something creative and silly and people will really vote for it.

Fine print:

- No photoshopping at ALL. Just a straightforward picture of you in a costume. Feel free to make the pose and scene as exciting as possible, I'm sure it will affect peoples' votes. But do it with real objects, not on your computer! You certainly can and should crop your image down to a good size and composition, though.

- Only a single photo is allowed. Don't do a split screen set of pictures from different angles, an animated video, or anything else crazy. How well you plan your picture is part of the challenge!

- Feel free to email me your picture if you don't have a way to host it easily (though http://www.tinypic.com is super simple to use!). I can host it here in a nice high-quality format. If you are getting bad quality at photobucket or wherever, send it to me! Do that before the 31st though, so I have time to do it and get the link to you.

- The image you post must be less than 800 pixels wide, please. If you don't have a good way to resize it or know how, again, email it to me and I'll take care of it! Before the 31st!

- One entry per person. Choose wisely!

I'm balding, but not nearly enough to be Bouapha. Maybe next year? :)

Okay! The poll is up! One of these 4 brave souls will earn 995 YerfBucks! Vote for your favorite now. The polls close and the winner is announced in one week. Anyone can vote and you only get one vote, so choose wisely! It is anonymous.

Is it just me, or does it seem a bit strange that 3/4 of the contestants joined pretty much exactly a year ago?

I really like MegaDog's, but I don't want to reward someone for just sticking their hand in front of a camera. +1 to SM for getting someone else's hands.

I don't know why, but I like Blackduck's costume, despite it's simplicity.

Actually, the glasses I'm wearing is made out of 2 big yogurt cups and the plastic on the pie boxes!

the best part about blackduck's costume is really the fact that its just the glasses...

I told you you should've made an axe!

Those would actually be my hands.

P.S. I'm SM's brother

Heh... I never realized how nerdy... I mean good you look SM!

That... that was much, much worse. You insult me with your accusations that someone would take "nerd" as an insult in the very clear context in which it was presented. (Carry on though, just... be careful around words like "nerd" and "geek". <insert The More You Know banner here>)

Redbone 11-05-2008 04:56 PM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
It's official.
SpaceManiac won.
Not really official though, since the contest is still on.

SpaceManiac 11-05-2008 05:00 PM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
Yeah, at 56% of the votes, it seems certain.

Relax, it was just a joke... I'm probably just as nerdy as him.

Besides, He doesn't seem to take offense to it.

No, not really... It's not something I really appreciate being called, but I won't go all crazy over it.

I consider 'nerd' as OK. I'm a nerd.

Redbone 11-07-2008 04:40 PM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
Whenever I'm in the mood at school, I spin around and around saying "I'm a nerd. I'm a nerd."

Adrian 11-07-2008 10:32 PM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
I'm not a nerd. -_-

Nerd = good
Geek = bad
Geeknerd = worse
Hamster Kid = awesome

Despite any terminology issues, SPACEMANIAC WINS!

Thanks to all the contestants, and we hope to see more of you being brave and ridiculous next years!

Congratulations, Spacemaniac. I hope my vote helped. I think nerds are destined to rule the Earth starting soon.

It's hard to type one-handed while holding pizza in the other hand.

Congrats, SpaceManiac!

SpaceManiac 11-08-2008 02:48 PM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
Thanks everyone! You've all helped a bunch, by entering and voting, for me or someone else!

I came third and have not received YB's yet! Why is this?

Sorry, I totally forgot there were 2nd and 3rd place prizes! They have now been awarded.

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
To be honest, seeming as only four people entered, I think it's a bit unfair that all of the top three got a prize, but the fourth person didn't get anything.
Especially as, based on the amount of effort put in with the costume and such, I think seamonkey came second, which is one of the reasons I voted for him.;)

Mossysox 11-10-2008 01:43 AM

Re: Costume Party Contest!
 
Yes, that's what I thought - so he's doing all right out of this!
(Definitely in second place with the YBs...:lol:)
