August Event: Monster Umbrellas
Let's cool down this summer (or winter for southern hemisphere folks) with some cool drinks and RO umbrellas! I used this blogspot http://chandrabhaga-...r-umbrella.html to make a very simple one.
Have fun !!
Do not buy an umbrella.
Must be made for this contest.
Do not make a fancy base umbrella.
Must very obviously be an RO monster whether from the sprite or the card.
Size is completely irrelevant so a giant umbrella won't be judged better than a small one!
I don't want to see obvious tracing so please no umbrellas from tracing paper/thin paper :/
Absolutely no printing off images. Please draw/make everything you want to include on the umbrella.
Step by step pictures are required for both the base umbrella and any features added afterwards.
Please try to take detailed pics of the steps (you don't have to post them all, but it is in case validity is questioned).
A paper umbrella will have as much merit as a handmade silk umbrella with hand carved wood. The point of the contest is not to make a fancy umbrella, but to have fun making an RO monster out of one. No extra "points" will be given to a fancier base umbrella.
By base I mean both the handle and the top. It won't matter if you spent hours making just the umbrella part, the work should be in creating a qt monster.
As an example it would be like making your own egg for the egg painting contest we had in Easter. It's completely irrelevant. The umbrella you make is just the base product!
Look more towards adding cute details to the umbrella instead of just drawing a monster on it! Be creative! Instead of drawing a Sohee, draw her cute face and add little paper bells to the sides or something.
Sorry this part is so long.
Top three umbrellas will win more fancy Life Ribbons !
Three Honorable Mentions will win the Green Creative Convention Hat. If you own said hat you may move up to Red and so on depending on what Oda feels like giving out.
No participation prizes!
Ends August 30th at 11:59 PM PST. Winners will be picked on the following Tiki Tuesday.
Example was done very quickly so please excuse the shoddiness.
Pls not too many Karakasas and put your step by step pictures in spoiler tags!
