There you go, putting reality in there again. I can see it now....
"hey, you didn't say anything about stealing your supplys."

Actually it looks like the Halloween fourum has some good ground rules going. could use those

Ok, so I was thinking about this. I'd like to sponsor one here and give a free t-shirt to the winner, which officially knocks me out of the competition. We should start to discuss the rules so everyone agrees on what is and isn't "ok" in this.

Should we use the HalloweenForum rules as our basis?
  • Post details of your prop and a picture (link okay) to this thread. (I'll create a thread for the actual contest later on)
  • Details must include a summary of how the prop was made and a list of supplies used. (How-to's are welcome)
  • The list of supplies must specify the cost of each item, and the cost must total $20 or less (or "close enough").
  • Supply prices must be reasonable - Using that Bucky skeleton that someone sold you for $3 isn't fair, but if you found some scrap lumber in a dumpster you can claim that as free. Use your head and some common sense here. Expendable items like glue and spray foam can be pro-rated.
  • In April, a poll will be created and a 10 day period of voting will take place. Winner will have the trophy mailed to him/her.

Of course, in order for us to actually do this, I'll say we need at least 5 participants... and feel free to participate in both ours and HalloweenForum's contest with the same entry.

Does this sound agreeable to everyone? Maybe we could choose a different month to hold the poll?

Ok, then let me submit for your approval two props that I am working on. The first is just a mask that I bought from Wal-mart last year for 1 buck. The paper mashe' and glue wasn't very. About a 1 buck for the paper and glue. Not done with it yet, just wanted to put my hat in the ring. The 2nd project is my pumpkinrot. The caldron was about 3.50 and about 2 bucks for paper and glue. This project not done yet.

Ok then, anyone else want to play? I'd like to get at least 5 members in on this otherwise it's not really much of a contest.

I think I'd like to toss into the rules that there can be only one entry per person, so in the end, Deathtouch will have to pick one of his to be entered in.

Also, as a courtesy to all the other participants, nobody will be allowed to vote on their own prop--you will need to vote on somebody else's. This will also help eliminate the risk of a tie. :googly: I can tell who voted for what.... so I will know! :devil:

Any other rules/questions/concerns you guys would like to toss into the bucket? I'd like to have something to say about this for Friday's chat reminder mailing.

Wow, that's awesome of you! Too bad you don't have any of the Talking Through Boris left... that'd be a good prize. Whatever you're willing to put up would be great. Perhaps a screamer fog machine and a timer or maybe a tombstone (of a value within reason). Really, anything is appreciated... it's good of you to offer something up.

I'll be sure to talk up your company tremendously in my email updates. "Frighteners Entertainment presents the Unpleasant Street $20 Prop Challenge"... or something along those lines.

In this case, perhaps the Frighteners item can be the big prize and the T-shirt can go to the runner-up.

Is that with or without the stem?:D

And ZF, what ever you think would be cool (with in reason ) I can do and I might have one boris here (need to check the batteries in it), but I think you should play too!

Since I build on the fly, I won't have a thing built until mid August.
